One thing I've learned after many years of replacing the guts of a toilet...check the gasket between the tank and the bottom part of the toilet to see what kind of gasket you need for your toilet before you go get your parts. The rest of the stuff is pretty much interchangeable for all toilet models, but for some reason, that one particular gasket isn't standardized.


Now to MY question:
The hose for my basement sump pump hose to outside is drilled through the concrete wall of the house about a foot and a half above ground level--accessible from the outside, and more or less from the inside basement wall (it is a garden level basement). But the hose in place is not the correct diameter and the hole is too small to take a bigger size hose. The sump pump hole is too small too, actually, but it can handle amount of moisture that collects there; I am just limited in what sump pump models I can install.

Anyways....can I just get a concrete bit and drill the hole bigger so a larger hose will fit? It seems a simple fix, but??

If we lived closer, I would send Mister right over to fix the problem. He's so freaking handy! He can do everything. Except spell.

Back in the day when he first started his job here in Oklahoma, I blew a gasket when he told me he was on the outside of the tallest building here doing some kind of something!

How the heck do you make pork tough? I don't know Kenny. Maybe it was a Goodyear not a B.F. Goodrich but I still don't know what you can do to pork to make it tough.

Good thing the sides were good and they had lots of cookies for you to grab.

mmmm--still shaking her head about the tough pork.

I can hardly believe you actually have heard the "Indian Love Call". It was kind of a standing joke around my house. My grandmother loved musicals so as a very young kid I accompanied her to all of them that were playing in the very small South Dakota town (I spent summers with her until I was 13 or 14)--and the Nelson Eddy song evidently stuck with me--years later my stepdad used to tease one of my mothers dogs (where do you think I learned to sing to dogs so they would howl along with me)--that dog would whine a little and finally break into a huge howl--then my stepdad would laugh his ass off, my mother would say "Stop that!" The dog would go on howling by himself for a bit. When he finally stopped he'd give everyone present a dirty look and refuse to even acknowledge us for awhile.

I'll be calling you Oo Oo Oo Oo...

I think probably everyone has at least heard it; they may not know where it came from, but that you-ooo-ooo-ooo is distinctive.

So when I was looking this up, this video followed... Early music memories for me..

Exodus


A friend of mine had a dog who would howl to "How much is that doggie in the window?"

Unfortunately accurate. They seem to have gotten the historical sequence right, even up to Armageddon at the end.

At least it is a cartoon version.

Well, killed, at least. She didn't eat it. Ick. It's so funny to me - she has zero prey drive for squirrels or rabbits or anything on the ground. But birds...she LOVES to catch and kill them.

The flush valve had broke - So head to town - get the parts I need and come back home , On ours - I had to take the tank off of the sitter part - drain out and dry any water out of the tank , there are 3 bolts that hold the tank on the sitter . finally got them out and noticed that the rubber washers needed to be replaced when I put it back together , looked at the new valve kit - NO washers in it ! WHY ?? So another trip to town - thought I would also change the big rubber gasket between the tanks and sitter part - came home - by now lunch time . Started back to work on it and when I was doing a pre-assembly - I noticed that the new valve would not work with the new rubber gasket I had just got - SO - back to town , one guy that was helping me looked at me and said Ken - I have NO idea how to make all this new stuff work with what you have , Called in another guy that works there - Same thing - So I drew them a picture of what I had and what the problem was , Ralf looked at it and thought for a few seconds - walked to the pluming area and came back and said this is what you need ! Took the package apart and we put it together right there to make sure -

Back home ! By golly it worked ! Wife walked in and asked - will you have that done by 4 ? ( it was 2:30 } she was be 'n ' a smart azz - lol I said I have NO idea the way things had gone .

Job was all done - I was putting the tools back in the pickup and took them back over to the shop , Back home - neighbor calls - told him about my day of fun and then here comes the Mrs. back out here , Said she was drying her hair and it sounded like a shotgun went off near the crapper ! So I went in there - took the lid off the tank and the float part - fill valve had broke and drove the top of it into the tank lid = shotgun sound from the water pressure ! I will be honest here - I cussed al the way BACK to town to get new fill valve - had to stop by the shop - pick the tools back up and then home - by now it was 4:45 !

Took the fil valve out - put in new and reset the new one for the depth of water in the tank - Got that set - 5 p.m. !

Took shower - and then had a ice cold Miller Lite !

All day to fix a dang crapper ! Fun , Fun !
Bwahahahaha...!!!! Been there, done that Kenny--all of those old rental houses I've lived in had archaic plumbing and I always managed to move in as everything was failing.

One of the houses was a one bathroom number (actually most of them were) and the first day the only toilet developed a Niagra like constant flush the first time it got used. Called the landlord--he said he could get someone over there on Thursday (it was Sunday at that point) I mumbled a lot of very bad words and trudged off to a huge, old hardware store (since defunct and has a lovely big Lowes in that location and no one knows anything beyond what the labels on racks and bins say) where there were a couple of old farts who knew everything about plumbing back to the stone ages. I went in with a handful of parts and my tale of woe--told them about the house, the age of the plumbing the brand of the toilet itself and they got together after digging around in a dusty back room and gave me a sack full of parts with instructions on what to do with them (including one seal which came with the following instruction--"this goes here and try flushing the toilet and if it leaks everywhere then take that out and put this one in.)

It worked--I called the landlord again and said "don't bother I fixed it" to him. He said "WHAT???? Well you can't take that off the rent .." Then he started laughing--I think he fell out of his chair--and I hung up. I think the bag full of parts cost me about $2.70--they gave most of them to me saying they were in the junk box that they guarded during inventories so that they wouldn't get thrown away.

These days I still live in a one bathroom house but I have a really great landlord who actually comes and deals with my various problems the same day I call him about them.

Ahhhh Kenny--so glad it was you telling that story and not me.

LOL! OK Kenny--you get today's best little video of the day. That kitty looks like he's about the size of Leon--Clark's roughly twice that size I don't know if that lil' Pin could lift him.

Still laughing about this one....

Now to MY question:
The hose for my basement sump pump hose to outside is drilled through the concrete wall of the house about a foot and a half above ground level--accessible from the outside, and more or less from the inside basement wall (it is a garden level basement). But the hose in place is not the correct diameter and the hole is too small to take a bigger size hose. The sump pump hole is too small too, actually, but it can handle amount of moisture that collects there; I am just limited in what sump pump models I can install.

Anyways....can I just get a concrete bit and drill the hole bigger so a larger hose will fit? It seems a simple fix, but??
Mel,

Do you even need to ask? It's plumbing which means that it's NEVER a simple fix.

LOL--between you and Kenny and the plumbing issues even though I just saw an updated weather forecast that said we had two more days of torrential rain starting approximately now. I the moment it's sort of looking like it's clearing up but I guess that's just a short break between fronts. UGH!

Better keep her at home if you ever come visit.

No eat my chickens!

Caught neighbor's little terrier over here eyeballing my chickens. They were all huddled up in the coop. I got there just in time.



I will never understand.

If you love your dog you would protect it from your neighbor. Right?

Part of the charm of this house is that it is wrapped in chained link fencing.

Pet ready!

It was supposed to be Axel's house. It still is. I bought it with Axel in mind. Barn can wait.

That was then. This is now. I want a barn dammit!

What kind of bird was it?

You might be pissing Mocha and Frank off.

Just saying.

I don't know if she'd be interested in chickens or not - so far it's been small, flying birds. Obviously I wouldn't risk it. And it's not something we encourage!

I have no idea what kind of bird it was....I wasn't home. My husband emailed me to tell me. And apparently it wasn't a clean kill; he had to dispatch the poor thing. I feel awful.

mmmm--still shaking her head about the tough pork.

I thought pork belonged in a crock pot with mustard slathered on it surrounded by sauerkraut.
