Another Friday!  Awesome weather in Indianapolis, with almost Southwestern US low humidity and warm days. 

 

Sorry to hear about your loss @Uniblurb3 - I consider my pets as my children.  We lost Mandy (another Shih-tzu), almost 10 years ago and vowed not to get another but Gizzie found us (7 homes in his first year, why? he is so sweet!). He is going to be 7 this Fall.  Time sure flies.  He got scared by a cordless driver from the Plumbing/HVAC company, recently .  The fellow was there Wednesday night to reattach a section of ducxt work that the plumbers had removed.  They had forgotten to attach an access panel behind a dresser - when that first Brrrr-RIIIIP! went off, I have never seen him run so fast.  Fastener #2 went off and he almost hit his head trying to go under the bed but he held his own for tthe last two.

 

The plumbing has been fixed but the drywall is on hold until they come back to see if everything has dried out.  Tjose two fans really scattered dust and debris.  Yuck!

Gizzie sounds like alot of laughs.  The last two dogs we had were black labs, Taz (who we lost last year to old age) & TJ (Taz Jr, not from same family) both like to step on the cord to the vacuum cleaner to turn it off.

 

When my brother was working in our yard last summer and was using a circular saw, we thought TJ was going to hid under the sofa due to the noise.  The sofe is about 2 inches off the floor and he weighed about 30 lbs at that time.  It was so funny.  After about a half hour, he started barking at brother to stop the noise.

 

It has been warm in in Eastern PA the last couple of weeks.  Yesterday was nice, since the rain cooled down everything.  I am hoping that this summer is not going to be high in humidity.  If I remember the last time we had a cold and snowy winter, the summer was not that bad.

 

This is the time of the year to start going to the drive-in movies.  We have two drive-ins in my area.  One of the is one of the oldest contunious running drive-ins in the country.  It is the cheapest family night around.  It costs $9 a person for 2 movies.  Snak Bar food is cheap or you can bring your own.  I am trying to talk my 16 year son into going on a movie date with his old mom this weekend.

 

Hope everyone has good weekend.  If you have nice weather, go outside and start on your summer tans.

Well the weather is sort of nice with a lot of Humitity(Houston area's full of Humidity right now). It seems like rain can happen at any time(it rained here in South Montgomery County and so far dry elsewhere). I just hope it doesn't rain so much that it floods.

Thanks Dave, appreciate it! Charlie was strange in he didn't mind power tools much, or thunder, but could not stand the sweeper, vacuum, air compressor, etc.. Must have been the high pitch of fast moving air noise.

 

Speaking of dust/shop-vacs. A couple weeks ago I took my woodstove chimney apart and cleaned it. I have a fairly good/clean method where I wire a large trash bag around the foot long 8" dia pipe sticking out of the ceiling. I have my wire round brush with one extension in the bag and shove it up in while supporting the bag. Then poke a small hole just up from the bottom of the bag and add 2 more extensions while moving the brush up/down. This catches almost everything coming out of the pipe in the bag.

 

But then I was sucking up everything from burning 7-8 cords of wood this winter around the stove with my shop vac. My safety glasses were getting a little dusty but said why not suck the ashes right out of the stove? Couldn't see very well and my wife came in the living room and said, "what the heck is going on?" Shut the vac off, took my safety glasses off, and here this enormous cloud of wood ash dust was through the whole house! What a mess and somehow my shop-vac must have malfunctioned shooting all the dust right out the top vent. We're still cleaning up ash dust everywhere and I'll never do that again!

 

Ahh...good ole drive-in movies and miss them!

Well guess what?

 

 

The drywall guy was doing his thing while I took a shower upstairs.   After I finished. he said "Dave, the shower is still leaking.....!"  You HAVE to be kidding me?!   At least the wall is still down so anything that leaks will dry out.  The earliest that the plumbers can return is Thursday.  $#%@!

Well that doesn't sound good. Three days before the plumbers to return isn't cool.

Holy cow!  Guess you'll have to shower out in the back yard, Dave.

Naw, would not want to give the neighbor's a free shot, lol.  We can use it as often as we'd like since the walls are opened and the leak isn't too bad, it'll dry in a few hours.  My wife threatened to call the owner - she gets a bit crazy when she rants, so we'll see what shakes (drips?) out.

Yep - they are sure that they have it this time.  Smiley Very Happy

 

A plate that covered the old tub drain lever / overflow plate, wasn't tight.  It certainly wasn't the big leak that we had before.  That seemed to fix it!  They also fixed a small leak on a supply line, going to a humidifier (one drip every ten seconds) that wasn't part of the job but they didn't stick us with another bill, lol.  They also noticed a copper line that serves as the laundry vent, was sweating.  Once the drywall gets done, ductwork insulated and such that won't be an issue.

You might want them to double check that vent pipe. Vent pipes should not have standing water in them, only air. If it's sweating, that usually means there's standing water, which means the sewer is draining slowly or improperly.
