    They say I shot a man named Gray and took his wife to Italy
    She inherited a million bucks and when she died it came to me

    Those displays weren't that small that someone with reasonably decent vision couldn't read them. He said the edge of roof was only like 8-9 feet above grade.
    I live for today, I'm just a day behind.

    People where I live in Jamaica have been wanting to raise their meters because of theft of meters... Yes, people stealing electric meters... to try to get free electricity for a while...
    They also steal older water meters to sell the metal from, leading the utility to install plastic water meters that according to those who have them, charge more for water... But the three people who called me in for problems after the new water meters went in all had leaks caused by stressing the water pipes - so usually just dug up five feet of waterpipe after the meter, installed a one way valve and new pipe, reburied it and problems fixed.. one customer said they had lowest water usage in ten years..either they had always had a small leak or they had never had the one way valve in place.

    But still prefer meters more at eye level..
