I am hoping for 70% off plumbers rates today. What seemed a simple clogged kitchen drain has morphed into a complex clogged drain. Almost 6 hours and still cannot clear it. Bad install resulted in a grease clog that does not want to clear even with a snake. If no results soon we are going to cut out the pipes and replace them. Not a fun day. At least the guys working on it are fun. Hope everyone else is having a better day.
Update: After heating the drain pipe and beating on it with a hammer the clog finally let go. 7 hours of frustration but the end result is good. Happy now. It is a good day finally.
Thank you StevenJames for the translation.
And here I thought musian was a variation on a person who muses.
The scary thing is I know people, both male and female, who think this way.
Happy Friday to everyone in the clan!
“Wha-a-at!?!” is right. I can understand protective cases for phones, blackberry’s, and iPods. But sleeves, jackets, wraps, and socks? I need to borrow an Eyeroll from rgcviper!
Exactly the reverse here. My wife tends to purchase anything she needs. On top of that she is really fussy and often does not like what I get her. Clothing and most jewelry is out for that reason. Got smart. Took her to Pandora and had her pick out her own gift. I will wrap it and put it under the tree. Kind of takes the fun out of it but better than her not being happy.
I will admit I am hard to buy for as well as I tend to get the things I need. However, since I hate buying my own clothing any wearable gifts are appreciated. Jigsaw puzzles and Coke memorabilia are also welcome so my wife and daughters do have some ideas of what to get me.
I am rather late checking in tonight so hope everyone had a great day.
I agree with Lightenup. Those are all under the tree gifts. Our daughters’ stockings are usually filled with the ‘little’ things – like a toothbrush (a tradition passed down from both my parents and my in-laws), lip balm, and other handy items – along with some chocolate of course. My contribution is to individually wrap every item.
Almost finished my Christmas shopping (thank you Pandora at Disney Springs). Just a couple of more items to purchase on-line and I can relax until next year.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of the Clan south of the border. Happy Thursday to everyone else.
I finally get caught up after the last trip and the recital last weekend only to leave again. Tomorrow we start heading south to join with my daughters and then on to Disney World. Have to make sure Mickey and Minnie made it through the hurricane season – and get ourselves into the Christmas spirit as well. I will wave to Gretchen’s Mom and Lightenup as we fly over Georgia.
TImes have changed a little bit since this strip was written. Now there is economy $, premium economy $$, then business class $$$. And a few steps in between depending on whether or not you want to be able to afford to make a change or even cancel your flight.
Hope everyone is had a great Friday today. Spent this afternoon setting up lighting for the dance recital tomorrow afternoon. Forgot how much work it is and how stiff and sore I get by the time I am done. Still worth it though!
RgcViper If Cathy rolls her eyes to we get one credit for a future eyeroll? I will join you in wishing everyone in the Clan a Happy Sunday.
