Plumb Tuckered Out
Friday, July 21, 2017      6 comments

The plumbers came this morning to replace my water heater (MAJOR) and fix the leaky faucets and toilet that wouldn't re-fill (MINOR)... It's a good thing they came early, because apparently to bring my water heater up to code, it necessitated so... Read more

We are visiting Logan, Utah and the Utah Festival of Opera and Musical Theater, and yesterday we watched two very different productions in the same theater (or perhaps it's called a theatre)... Anyhow, we arrived an hour early for the Pirat... Read more
