Happy Camper

Whenever I can find a product, that makes everyday life a little easier on arthritis- riddled hands, and worn-out backs I'm grateful.
Last year I bought one of those lightweight, expandable hoses, it was such a great help in the garden, hardly weighing anything, it made watering a breeze.
After I was through, the whole thing, just shriveled up in a neat little package, small enough to sit in a bucket.
Easy peasy.
Sadly there was a design flaw, and after three months the entire end flew off whilst attached to the spigot, and my little garden helper was kaput.
The manufacturer recognised the problem, and offered a full-refund, if returned to the store.

This season they have corrected the weakness, and The First Sergeant  surprised me with my very own new and improved version.
I couldn't help but smile from ear to ear.

You will have to let us know how good it works. They make it sound wonderful.

Interesting, not yet seen here such an easy hose. Have the same problem with my hands, so I am always looking for handy tools too.

I got one last summer and never used it and was grinning at your glowing review, till the last part. Wonder if they would take it back at Wal Mart and exchange it for the new and improved. My 3 year old expensive washer and dryer both went out and my truck door wouldn't open to the tune of $400. Just this week. When it rains... Love the little rag rug under the hose.

I had the same problem!

Donna, I took the hose back to Home Depot, complete with broken end piece...no packaging. They were happy to refund my money at the time.
Hope you are done repairing things for awhile, yes always comes in threes :)

I just love visiting your blog and being greeted first things with such beautiful music and lovely images. I forgot to mention that your "Mothering Sunday" post isn't showing up. Have a beautiful day!

So glad to hear about this- I've been wondering if it's worth the investment!
