The furnace started leaking water every time the air conditioner went on, and with the crazy hot summer we've been having, it was on a lot. The water trickled over to the wall where it seeped under the floor and on over to the next room, which is our room. Then it came up through the laminate floors, the underpadding and the carpet. Mom realized the problem when she walked into our room and her feet left wet footprints - yuck!
She called a plumber, who cleaned out a hose and said that the problem was solved. One week later, more water. She called him back and he then insisted the water was coming in from outside when it rained. Mommy looked at him funny and insisted that wasn't the issue. He insisted it was. Mommy hates it when service people come over and think that just because she is a lady that she doesn't know anything. But she knows more than a thing or two.
She tried calling other plumbers but all were very busy and the wait would be very long. Then one plumber, upon listening to the problem, said he knew exactly what it was and told her how to fix it herself. So she did, with the help of a co-worker who can fix anything with a pipe wrench and a can of WD40. Turns out that plumber guy cleaned out the wrong hose. The basement has been dry ever since. Where was Dad in all this? Well, let's just say it's better if Daddy stays away from the tools, for everyone's sake.
Binky likes hiding under the couch. She has to flatten herself out like a pancake to slide under there but she can do it. Despite having no carpet, we both do pretty well and Binks is able to get up to a good trott when that box of raisins is given a good shake. She also likes ripping up the flyers in the magazine rack. Here is a shot of her proudly running around with a piece of paper in her mouth...silly girl.
Before I sign off, I would like to acknowledge the fact that my little bunny blog has reached over 10,000 hits! Mommy is really proud of me and I am feeling pretty proud myself! Who knew three years ago when I first started posting, that this fun little world that I share with you would gain so much interest? Thanks goes out to all my peeps for reading the redonculousness that I write - and of course, thanks to Mom who takes my dictation and types it all out. It's hard to type when you don't have opposing thumbs to hit that spacebar......
