Bad Things Happen in Threes
At least the wait is over. Monday morning when the wife's car blew up I told her then we had two more breakages coming that week. This whole Summer has been costly repair bills one after the other so I am getting used to it.
Thursday as I gunned my engine to race out into traffic at a busy intersection I managed to break my exhaust pipe on the truck. So that was number two.
Then last night late I noticed some water leaking around the toilet. Sigh.
Of course each thing has to be in an area that I know little about or cannot really fix myself. The exhaust pipe requires a bit of welding and shouldn't be too expensive but I of course do not have a welder yet. The money I had set aside for that went into the transmission :)
The toilet needs the part that comes up into the tank from the water line. The one the float turns off and on. It looks to be an easy fix except of course I am experienced with plumbing enough to know the trick isn't in finding a part.... The trick is finding the part that fits. I have never had good luck with all the different sizes and types of stuff out there when it comes to plumbing.
Since it is raining this morning I guess I will head off into town once again and attempt to find the part I need. I am not filled with confidence my search will prove productive but I need to try.
It maybe Fall but the Summer of constant repair bills continues.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
