    Welllll ... I heard from my mechanic. It isn't good. He started tracing down the wiring and found rodent damage all over the place. He says that it would be "cost prohibitive" for them to try to fix it. The bill would be in the thousands. My poor Jeepers. My BF says that he can rewire it. He's rewired buses and they take miles of wire. But, it's not something that can be done before Terry's visit. I can't even believe he's offering to do this for me. Dunno what I'd do without him. I'll have to do my best to make it up to him somehow.

    *sigh*

    DON'T go back to smoking, no matter what the FDA does.
    Going back to smoking will be a huge loss for you, in more ways than one.

    Lizzie, this drip stuff is fascinating to me - I have nothing to water, but I learned about it pretty extensively in Green Building class. It's one thing to learn about it; it's completely another to watch somebody actually doing it.

    ...so ramble on, girl!

    And I looked up that smoking-in-you-apartment thing...ACK, legal! Goes for condos that you OWN too. I think I read somewhere that, even when it's not on the lease, they need only to give you 30 days notice before they can eject you from the building. So all I can say is, pretend you're on a plane/in a bar, vape on and don't get caught.

    As for the staying out/having visitors reporting thing, dunno. Maybe it's in place to protect those tenants with dementia? You know, the ones that age backwards? Maybe that's why they're treating everybody like teenagers.

    I feel for you, Uncle. I don't think I can ever live like that. I'd buy a used trailer and park it at Rave's house.

    Yeah, not when they're this close. Probably better to just mark your Xes on the calendar. So how long before they're outta there?

    That SUCKS, Rave. So do you eat that, or is it covered by any kind of insurance? Dang, that's a lot of work. All that stuff is modular with plugs these days, right? Maybe you'll be able to find some non-OEM harnesses that are affordable, at least for some of it. Then when it's fixed, is there a way to keep it from happening again? I'm sure it involves some type of urine, right? EEEEWWW.

    Great guy you've got there, Rave. Take him up on it, make sure he knows it every day, and don't mess with his karma.

    I'm fixing to head to town and get a new ice cream maker. I'm thinking of getting a 2 quart one that has the bowl you freeze. Have any of you used one?

    I dunno how long it'll take. According to Dave, he'll have it closed in by winter, but I have my doubts. Even though he helped a great deal when David and I built this house, he still has a lot to learn. I've looked over his framing design on SketchUp and it all looks great. But, you know how it is. There are always things that come up. And, they are paying for it as they go along. Even though they make excellent wages in their jobs, it still takes a lot to build a house. I'm guessing that it will be two years before they are able to move out - give or take. Sure hope I'm wrong, but I think that it realistic.
