I actually called a plumber one time. But ONLY after piercing a water supply pipe to add a water line for ice an maker. So I decided to add my own water supply to our fridge for the built-in ice maker. First, I felt it was important to identify the correct pipe in the wall.… Continue reading DIY, or Whatever (repost)
Then there are those days when I hide from the doorbell because what kind of twat waffle shows up unannounced?!? I mean at least a text message would ease my mind! “Oh, it was just UPS.” Well it could have just as easily been a lunatic, but whatever.
5 Things You May Not Know About Texas! (Even if you do, keep reading!)
