Weekend plumbinatin'

For complex reasons involving raising water hundreds of feet, and pressure tanks and chlorine injection and pump vacuums, Amy and I had to replace an 80 gallon galvanized tank with a 350 gallon pvc tank. Uninstall. Unpipe. Expand deck. Install. Repipe.

Fun. Fuuuuuuunnnnnn. Fuuuuuuuuunnnnnnnnn!

Sort of. The weird thing is, this is the first plumbing project we've ever done that held water on the first attempt. Huh.

Dear Lord in Heaven

Please keep these people away from the Hill Country!

"But being city people, they did what anyone looking to “get away from it all” would do first, before they even spent the night: they paid $3,000 for a home-security system complete with motion detectors, a one-touch intercom that connects to fire and police dispatchers and an emergency hand-held remote-control device they could leave on the bedside table at night. “I know it sounds ridiculous now that I talk about it, but I just feel safer sleeping with the remote control,” Mr. Gotlib, a 32-year-old corporate sales director for Time Inc. Media Group, confessed, “because those deer are aggressive.”"
