Damn, buddy. That sounds a lot like my luck. Hopefully you'll catch a break soon.

I didn't realize Beth had a door seal, or a supply side. I'd get her to a doctor!

Edit, did you check the drain line?

2nd edit,
If you didn't at least smile at my first sentience , have a drink and grab a hammer. Or, tip Beth upside down and see if she still leaks.

Man, Scott! When it rains it pours!!! Or maybe when it leaks, it floods! Just sit down in the driveway and throw rocks and cry for a little bit! Always makes me feel better!

Sorry to hear all that Scott, I feel for ya. It seems like all appliances wear out at the same time for me. There should be a stop-leak for house plumbing!

Now that's funny Billy Bob. I can't wait to show Beth what you wrote about her...

I can't find my "EASY" button. I think my wife tossed it out by accident.



I took off work today for a preliminary meeting at the doctor's office. This will be for my first colonoscopy. Then Beth and I are supposed to drive to Gainesville to meet with the the title company to close on our house. This is for the refinancing. For refinance, we are going through State Farm Bank. SFB called this morning to say we are NOT closing today. I requested off work AND scheduled the doc appt BECAUSE they said the 2nd.

I know I will begin to laugh at some point. When my mind snaps.

Gonna go eat my homemade sausage biscuits and have some more coffee.

Oh Skipper quit complaining at least all the work is inside the house and not outside in the cold! Now I understand cold is a relative word and in your case 76 Fahrenheit is cold.
Up here it so cold!
Skipper do you want to know how cold it is up here?
Skipper its so cold up here that the democrats have their hands in their own pockets!

A big success today. The tub is set! Finally. What an aggravation. But I saved the cost of a plumber, the allegedly highest paid profession in America.

So today I worked on the tub. I am off today because I had to work Friday, which is a normal day off. My sons are all home. Tbe older boys helped a great deal with the tub. It was GREAT! I am so proud of their help. The younger boys did other things, like applying knock-down on the walls, and taking care of smaller issues that needed to be done. I told Beth today, had God graced us with a daughter(s) they would have been tomboys! I am so glad I am not fighting off boys chasing my girls!!!

I have hit a mellow spot today! That's good. Finally relaxed a bit. I give thanks for the gifts I was given. I give thanks for my wife. And I give thanks for my sons. I also give thanks for my Jeep Buddies who, more than anyone, keep me sane and real.

I give special thanks for the one true God who has saved me and my family.

Amen.

I am smiling today Boys!!!

And it has been in the mid '80s all week!!! Shorts and T-shorts Baby! Now it is time to go eat that pork loin I smoked this afternoon.

Good to see something good for you Scott, you needed it. When you said "tub" I thought you meant this kind of tub

image-3332047924.jpg

But alas no, not yet. Plenty of time for that.

Lucky you have boys. I have a daughter, I'm worried. Porch + beer + rocker + gun = don't worry so much. Oh yeah, we can't have guns. = worry.
