(credit to the magnificent Cyranny for this one) 2. Whom do you miss more Freddy Mercury or Prince? (if you don’t … Continue reading Share Your World, March 1, 2021
It's getting better...we had the water turned on for about five minutes last night...just long enough to make sure it is going through every pipe and out where it is supposed to...and to check for any leaks or drips under the house. Lee found four drips and wants to replace ONE (count it, just ONE) … Continue reading it’s getting better
Today's Fun with Plumbing began early. The 28 foot long trench from the water meter to the house had to be deepened to four feet (3 feet just not being good enough for the idiot code enforcement jerk). Water piping had to be laid out and coiled all over the front yard and driveway. Piping … Continue reading Fun with Plumbing
We've been rebuilding the house from underneath now for a blessed week. All the pipes were replaced, the shower pipes "capped off" because we need to move the blasted shower...and all was looking good. The water was turned back on....................and we had about 14 new springs appear in a nice little line from the water … Continue reading water, water everywhere and not a drop to…shower!
So, I no longer know how many days we have been without water in the house. It feels like we'll never get it back on again. I have literally a week's worth of dishes to wash, two weeks worth of clothing, bedding, towels to wash...and no water yet in sight. We've had Lee under the … Continue reading I’m firing whomever is in charge of winter!
I wish someone would tell me why I thought cleaning out my file cabinet would be a good idea...it has the paperwork of past taxes, a family genealogy, all the appliance warranties and instruction books, a bunch of papers from my old college days, George's Army records....nd that is just the tip of my paper … Continue reading good grief!

QUESTIONS: (an “odd” basket full today) Have you ever ‘butt dialed” someone? (‘butt dialed’ means have you ever made … Continue reading syw, Feb 22, 2021
This entire thing was stolen from Mel over at SparksFromACombustibleMind, and I can't remember which one of Rory's ten bazillion challenges this is..but I liked the questions. Go figure it out by going to either blog and they'll show ya! Questions 1.Are you happy with all your body parts? 2.What is the worst song ever? … Continue reading Rory’s question “fun”
So we are on day 7 (8?) of no flowing water...in the pipes at least. We never lost electric or gas (Thank you all that is Holy or in charge of this crap!) so we've been "warm". Yea, I know "warm" is relative, and I could have used a few relatives to snuggle up with … Continue reading What new fresh Hell is this?
Late yesterday afternoon our last water pipe decided to freeze, and then burst. So, no water to the toilet...ah well, we do have a camping potty chair that George placed in the bathroom. Except, no kitty litter in the house or shed to line the seat-bucket...so it's off today to brave the cold and ice … Continue reading just another day
