There's a slight discrepancy with the hydrant clipart above. Extra credit if you spot it.

There's a conventional use of for hydrants. But it isn't universal.
What color are they hydrants in your community?

One of the things we face in my town is snow. When the plows have cleared the streets, it is common courtesy for someone along the street to shovel around the hydrants so that the fire department can easily get to it. If nobody does it, the fire department eventually comes by and removes snow. E.P.S., how do you even know where the hydrant is if it snows?

The day, as they say, has passed away.
We came to dread it, no extra credit.
No one did see the small discrepancy. (maybe, too, they won't notice the lack of proper poetic beat.)

To be fair, only US citizens would have been likely to have noticed that the wrench "nut" on the cap for a hose connection was hexagonal. To make unauthorized removal difficult, US hydrants typically have a pentagonal (5-sided) shape. Fire companies have the special wrenches needed.

It would be my (531 posts) inclination to allow you (4149 posts) most things. "Seniority" counts for something!
I think galactants, whether they are Greek or not, deserves a place in the world's lexicon.
I'll report to the authorities, if and when asked under oath, that you were the source, voralfred.

E.P.S., it is great to have a proper illustration for the jabot. I'd never seen the term before it popped up as an Oxford Dictionaries Online WotD, and followed the definition they gave to locate a possible image. Yours, (handmade by you, wow) is fabulous.

E.P.S. I'm trying to stick with images I can "repurpose."

I really liked this one: http://www.jhiggins.net/sf_proddetail.a ... DBHBBF2HMP

While it might have been enough to include the link, I felt it would be difficult to go through all the steps to get copyright clearance from the vendor.

The photo actually doesn't represent modern day garbologists at work. These workers appear to be gleaning valuable materials from the trash stream of a dump in Cambodia. But all that broken pottery which archeologists study is probably from ancient middens, the dumps of our ancestors. Modern "investigative journalism" is purported to use the trash of celebrities to report on their activities.
