    The joys of homeownership!

    Puddle under the water heater this morning. Un-family-like words uttered. Plumber on the way. There goes the toy fund.

    That's too bad Carol. Hope it isn't too expensive of a fix.

    Or a used modular... I spend most of my free time under the house trying to patch degraded plastic pipes... I need to just replumb the whole house, but I hate working in mud and water in an 18-20 inch crawl space.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Or better yet, have a wife that has her own stand alone business. If something breaks there or at home, I have to fix both.

    Carol, you can really fix this yourself. It's not that hard. I got faith in you.

    Job is done. $345 total. I partnered with a plumber. I had the old one out standing on the porch when he arrived. Dried the plywood floor with a heat gun. He installed the new one and hauled the old one off for $50.

    I'm happy. I'm back in the house trying to warm back up! Hmmmm....maybe I'll take a hot shower!

    Arizona is not all desert. We have mountains. I am at 6200 feet. It gets cold here! Not as cold as the Midwest, but way more cold than I like.
