Good day yesterday, first full day since we got home. Okay, I did oversleep so I lost one hour, but I’ll get the hang of it soon.
On Sunday we were getting ready to entertain Larry and Maryann Wakefield to celebrate Larry’s birthday when we heard the sound of rushing water in the basement. We were both dressed for guests in shirts, slacks, and shoes as we stood at the foot of the stairs and gulped at the heavy stream of water spraying from a water heater.
I was trying to remember where the main cutoff valve is located when my instant-action wife came streaking past me, almost literally. She had shucked her clothes down to her undies and went straight to her work of locating and turning off the valve that controls water to the whole house.
I offered to post a picture of her in her work clothes but she patiently explained why I might not want to do that.
Today we’re back in cold water (and I avoided hot water) but we still need a plumber to come fix or replace the heater. If it’s a guy plumber, I hope he keeps his clothes on.
