Life!

Well I am ready to return to the HITW...where the neighbors on the hill are a bit friendlier...Arrived home the house was not to bad accept the carpets...then the sewer backed up all over my basement, while I had four babies in the house who are all potty trained!...three women on the monthly and a major need for an out house. Not to mention the six loads of laundry that needed done.

Six inches of water in my basement, flowing from any drain down there...thanks to Miguel and Britt who cleaned the floating turds and paper as well as pumped and dumped all the water...while standing in toilet water for three hours...now that is a good boy friend.

A call to Eric at work informed him that he needed to come home or I was packing and going south again brought him running with Uncle John on his tail...hehe...the purchase of a balloon sort of device that hooks to the garden hose did not pop this plug, but it did provide a half hour of fun while we walked around the yard with our ears to the ground listening to the hum coming from the pipes under us.

A snake was rented and a couple "white mice" pulled from the plug. This opened it enough to allow the Ninja turtle and bouncy balls to flow out...Gotta love the little kids...lol. With that fixed it was time to start on the carpets...two days spent scrubbing and sucking carpets....I had to do the up stairs too...did not want to waste the rental fee for just the down stairs...

So now the laundry is done...the floors clean...and the toilets all flush for the first time since we moved in...ahhhhh!

Wow, that sounds like a fun filled couple of days. There is something to be said about the ole open pit septic system. Once again, in the U.S. we enjoy our luxury items and disregard potential sources for dual purpose use of by products. In the open pit, enough by product is produced to fertilize several gardens, much better than spending a lot of time with a mulch pile. Heat generation, one single open pit can produce enough methane gas to heat two homes up to 2,400 sq feet each. Methane gas may also be converted for use in your car with a few minor adjustments. So many benefits so little expense to develop. I understand that Global Warming expert Al Gore is installing an open pit at each of his mansions, as many weirdos that visit him, he should have a lot of by product to convert to alternative energy sources.

That was the plan at HITW, wasn't it? A cesspool under each cabin should keep the structure from frost-heaving.


Personally, I'd rather bury a Buick for a crib - YO!

Would a Bronco work as well as a Buick?
