After wrestling with a toilet flush valve replacement and installing some new parts so a bathtub faucet would stop leaking, I am on project #3: sanding the wood around our garage doors as well as the post on our porch so that I can repaint them.
For the past month. the temperature has been mild here, so leave it to me to save the outdoor project for this week's heat wave.
Anyway, coming in the front door after I had been sanding on the porch post, I noticed little boy giving me the evil eye. He was sitting at the computer desk in front of a bay window overlooking the porch where I was working.
"Are you being good over there?" I asked.Not exactly a vote of confidence for dad's work on the home improvement list.
Little boy frowned.
"Dad, why are you hurting my house?"
I'll have to tell him how I tried not to "hurt" the toilet only to realize while testing it, that if the adjustable pin is not firmly locked into place, lots of unwanted water sprays into the air.
In essence, being soft was repaid with "yuck."
Good thing this "appliance and building materials torturer" always carries towels with him.
Have a good weekend everyone.
