This week there were new leaks – under the house.
When Tom and Jerry were sealing gaps in the insulation a while back they smelled propane gas. They did the soap test and found a leak in the pipe. (I wonder how long that has been leaking? My propane bill has been outlandish this winter.) Yesterday T & J bought new pipe parts – elbow, union, 2 nipples, and sealer. I left the house to get my hair cut while they were underneath sawing and pounding. When I returned home we tested the stove burners, the water heater, the clothes dryer, and the furnace – they all came back on.
While T & J were wandering around under the house they saw water (or worse) seeping out of the main sewer waste pipe. They fixed that leak with some sort of sealer.
The toilet paper roll holder in the powder room has been wobbly since it was put in by my dear brother-in-law and my son. Every so often the holder has come apart when someone pulls sheets off the roll. It was startling. Now, thanks to Jerry the holder is firmly in place.
My stove top wasn’t level, and when I cooked an egg in a fry pan it always slid to the back of the pan. Tom leveled the range yesterday afternoon and my eggs should cook in the center of my pan from now on.
On their way out the back door, they pounded down the nails on the porch deck so I won’t trip.
And, they put the window-wash stuff in my car before they left. (I could have done that myself, but I was not sure which pipe to fill under the hood. Now I know.)
I’m starting a new list.
