This old plumber came out to visit this old house and told this old maid “Yep, you’re right. You don’t have a working shower.”
Nice to know he agreed with my assessment, but could he do anything about it?
“Wellp,” he thought. “For about $300, we could maybe take out a pipe, put in a new one. If that doesn’t work, for another couple hundred we could take apart your bedroom wall and re-do the valve. And if that doesn’t work, you might want to get new plumbing.”
Off to bang my head softly against the wall...
Plus which, I have visitors coming to visit. I'm planning strategies to divert most of the family gatherings to neutral territory, but I don't know how much time I'll have for exercising in the next few days. Except for exercising my self-restraint. I understand that jumping to conclusions is good exercise as well.
