And Not a Drop to Drink

"Albert! You aren't drilling another well are you?"
"Ma, you know we got to find some. We are going dry here. It is about darn time we had our own supply."
"But Albert, you ain't had nothing but bad luck with that in the past, and look at the state our yard is in."
"This time will be different."

"Would you please lay off ma?"
"No, we need water to drink and all you keep doing drilling is oil."
