American Darling

As a belated birthday gift, my youngest daughter gave me this American Darling fire hydrant *:



I fancy connecting a frost-proof yard hydrant to it so I might use it with a garden hose, but I'm not quite sure of how to accomplish such a feat. For now, I'm having fun deciding how I'll clean and paint it. Chrome yellow is the newer NFPA standard color for municipalities but this Munasipality[sic] likes fire-engine red.

* It's cast iron and incredibly heavy.
