Caturday O grabbin’!

8 years ago

Yesterday was a long one at TCM.
I took down two heavy curtains from the formal living & dining rooms.
I called a guy that hauls off appliances, free. He came & goy the working fridge & working washer. He was going to get the nonworking built in microwave. But the plug disappeared into a wall behind the big oven & we couldn’t get it out without taking out the oven.
When Good Nephew took the dryer, he didn’t want to unhook the washer. He said the parts looked old & he didn’t want to risk it. Smart move.
So Paul, the guy did unhook it and non-hilarity ensues with much water gushing. This involved water being turned off at the street and much drama. In fact, he left to go to his house to get a wrench or something & come back. Also, a water line from the sink to the fridge had to be turned off. So Paul, who will now be referred to as St.Paul was a God-send to us. As he was about to leave, I gave him $20. He did want to take it. He said, “You do realize, Ma’am, that this is free?” I told him that I did, but that he had worked so hard to help us. So he took it. We were talking about his other ad in the paper about garage clean outs. I told him how we were still stuck with the couches, big tv, heavy dresser & headboard in the house, plus all the mattresses. He said he would haul all that away today for $60! I was so happy.
On our way home, The paint people called & will come today to give a bid, along with Mr. Sparky.
Finally, I can get to more of the cleaning part.At least the utility room flood cleaned the gunk up! Ha!. But under the fridge is still an awful mess.
Yesterday, we managed to do a Lowe’s run & find more pool chemicals there, saving a second stop.

After not eating all day, we opted for our favorite Chinese place. I usually get their ‘House Special Beef” It is velvety strips of beef in a sweet sauce over a bed of raw shredded cabbage. Somehow, I knocked half of my DR. Pepper over in it. I scooped out all the ice & gave it a try. It was if I had just thinned out the sauce a little! It still tasted great & I ate every bite! Who knew?
My fortune mentioned taking care of myself. BW’s said she would come into some money from an unexpected source…

Moar coffee & back to teh salt mines.

Have a Jerrific Day

Happy Caturday, GN!

Hai, hard-working RabBeet (and BW)! Glad you’re getting some assistance from decent people; hope that holds true for paint and electrical vendors, too.

Given K8-E’s proclivities for cooking and (diet) Dr. Pepper, perhaps your dinner mishap will inspire a new KFH&BBQ menu item.

How was Falls trying to strangle her with a gun in one of his hands?

Fortunately rather ineptly, given the outcome.

Except for the cleaning supplies, the guy’s trunk sounds like the back seat of my truck.

Heh. Don’t get any “work-related” ideas. 🙂

Also, I initially read that as a “kilt” kit. Snort.

Good morning and happy Saturday!

I hope that you and BW, Rabbit, have a nice long vacation planned just for the two of you in a couple of months when the dust settles.

Heh. As far as work-related ideas, Fatwa, given what you know about the recent “troubles” there, I expect that somebody else may be plotting those.

Hai, Sven and Paddy!

As far as work-related ideas, Fatwa, given what you know about the recent “troubles” there, I expect that somebody else may be plotting those.

Just make sure they don’t use your tools.

And speaking of tools:

Hai, Mac!

You need moar bookcases, of course. 🙂

(Then again, that’s said by a guy who’d lurve to have a two-story home library. And a bigger book-buying budget than at present.)
