Joys of home ownership - AlanE - 08-13-2017

Found this last week when I was cutting my grass.

I guess the rain / heat finally cracked it enough to break off this chunk. After chasing out a frog and a slather of construction adhesive later, another check off on the "honey-do."

What home projects have you worked on this weekend?

Installed a weather station
Assembled a new chair

Alan,
You trying to be the next Bob Villa? . . . "I can completely restore this house in 30 minutes or less!"

With the advent, (curse,) of the low-flow toilet and a sewer that is not designed for the curse, a sewer cleaning is in order, YUCK.!

If anyone is really bored, they can come by and take care of my weeds. No weed eaters allowed as they send the rocks flying. Have a fine crop after the monsoons have been going on.

How about a Water Line break.  Sad

My idea of yard work involves Round-Up.  My wife now puts out crime scene tape in places I'm not allowed to spray.  .  .  Bummer!


RE: Joys of home ownership - OpalRose - 08-13-2017

She should just wrap that crime scene tape around you.   Too-funny

Heh, I would do more but it is just too hot out. My gardens have been overrun with weeds too.

Rule #2 double tap (the flush handle). Those low flushers never fully clear the bowl anyway and you have to flush twice so I don't see where the savings are at. Well, for #1 it might be a savings.

Ugh Oh-jeez That's an expensive project.

What I remember of Bob Villa and This Old House: Bob Villa walking around talking about all the stuff he was doing while others did the work. He occasionally added a hand to hold windows...Literally one hand.
