Never a Dull Moment (Day Two)

A rodent got into a wall of our tiny old home and died shortly before our visitors arrived.  The stink is most unpleasant in our guest’s bedroom, our bathroom, and the bedroom where my Beloved and I sleep.

The drain of our only bathtub/shower got clogged. It was not something that a liquid drain unclogged could fix. Or adult son (who is quite a good handyman) went under the house to clean out the trap and the 65-ish year old pipe broke off in his hands.

So, it was off to our local home repairs and supplies store for the second time in the first two days of their visit.

I wonder what surprises tomorrow will bring! Stay tuned…

With Love,

    glad it all turned out okay, good thing he was there visiting…. )

  2. Perfect timing 🙂 Though I think it would be fair now to let your visit be home repair free. 😉

      We’ve run into some glitches so short showers are followed by bailing before the next bather can begin the cycle once again. “Take a number. Make it quick. And bail until dry. Next!” LOL!

  5. Bloody hell, what rotten luck
