    Kinda. There are maybe a dozen questions I'd like to ask her, and I can't. That part is pretty frustrating.

    Just wrapped up a miserable on-call week.

    65 hours all told since Monday AM.

    We've got one store that has turned into a serious sore tooth. Under remodel by another contractor and we've got to deal with all of the service calls, all of the BS.

    That there are 2 id10t managers there overnight that aren't literate enough to read the alarm panel to me doesn't help matters, but they call every time that the alarm goes off.

    Today, we've got a 10' deep ditch in the front yard for our sewage line.

    The torture never stops.

    Sounds like you're getting a new lateral.

    At least you don't have a tank with an issue....

    We're starting the process of tying into the municipal sewage system.

    The 10' deep ditch is for the run from the house to the road.

    Next step is trenching the basement floor, cutting in drains there to add a second bathroom.

    Guys are here, bright and early, digging away. Momma just took off to get a thick wad of bills to pay the man.

    Our septic tank has had 'issues' since we bought the place. We knew that this was coming, so we dealt with it and saved for it.

    Yep that's a "service lateral."

    Hope the muni isn't charging more than a couple thousand for the connection fee....

    $2500 for tap in fee to the township.

    I won't break site rules by going into detail about the price of the contractor, but it is less than that for the 85' run complete.

    Replica civil war era sword from the recent Gettysburg trip.

    I tried to "age" the brass hooks with ammonia, but they aren't real brass, so it didn't work...

    Mom and Dad been gone for 16 and 12 years respectively and every now and then still, I run into a person/situation/group where I either am lost for an answer or advice and think...."I'll give Mom or Dad a shout when I get home and ask them"......then there's the feeling of stupidity right before the feelings of painful regret as I will never be able to do that again.....and as stupid as it sounds.....it still hurts a crusty/cranky 55 yr old Canucks heart bad.....
    You are a smart man keeping busy to not dwell but take care of yourself....you are a human being not a human doing......Take care Art.

    Well, I had the on-call today, and not a peep out of the phone. So, all I could do is to sit around and pet Julie's favorite cat.

    Wish I'd had a call.
