Least I can relax now knowing there will be no more releases from there for a while.

But when i unloaded this thing from the Car It begin‘s to Rain.

Naaaaaahhh - 

So the Weather doesn‘t allow me today go ahead with that Project.

So i just can start by plumbing few Fittings at home on it for draining.

Hopefully quick.

Mick, that’s no fun.  Been there, done that... two weeks into my first home ownership!  
 

I set a toilet yesterday for a friend.  I can say the word poop on the phone and he’s dry heaving.  I don’t understand... after it’s gotten onto that side of the drain, it all smells the same :teasing-tease:

Today, I ended up picking on my friend Norm.  :banana-linedance:I sure hope he has a cents, since, sense of humor.  It was the Wheel Horse Rye today.  :occasion-xmas:   On a high note...I did have steak and eggs for breakfast this morning.  I had forgotten how excellent that breakfast is.  :dance:

You'll have to wait 'till tomorrow. Won't put up the photo I took earlier. Think it's because it's dark outside. :teasing-neener:

Got the lawn mowed ,  dug up a few roots of a willow tree that were sticking out of the ground that were starting to get in the way of the blades.  Filled a few potholes in the driveway. Swept the barn out, then the skies opened up.  Been raining ever since, now there's small pools in the yard.  So happy to have gotten the lawn mowed.

Several weeks ago I had all new septic system drain lines put in at my house.  The guy I hired is quite a character, and septic systems is his specialty.  He told a story about working on a families septic tank when one of their teenage sons came out to investigate.  He said the kid looked down into the tank and almost gagged from the smell.  The kid made an awful face and said "that smells AWFUL"!!!  Tom said "smells like money to me"!  Danny

sewer pipe had other ideas.

Several years ago I had an overgrown shrub I wanted to remove.   Hooked a chain to it and pulled it out with my truck. I was quite pleased with how well it came out until I saw the piece of clay tile sewer pipe hanging from the roots.       :scared-eek:       Quick trip to the plumbing supply store, couple of dresser couplings and  a bit of digging and I was back in business.

Mowed the lawn, farted around with some tractors, supported our local BBQ called “Broken Smoker” and enjoyed 1/2 a chicken and a pound of brisket with the fam!

 

after dinner, Rylee and I made an obstacle course video for her last week’s gym class assignment to hand in to the homeschool academy!

All I did was work work and more work, After work I had planned on coming home and finishing the yardwork I've been working on all week. Instead Rodger and I went and looked at another Farmall M, tractor hasn't ran in several years, and probably wouldn't be worth making a runner out of, but if the guy takes our offer it will make a good parts tractor to get the two M's in my yard up and functioning again.

I'm officially fed up of digging. 

This whole week I've been like a crazed mole digging sewer pipes out for repair.

Last night I found a rainwater gulley was broken so needed replacing. I did that this morning so I reckon my drains are pretty much done for a while.

 

Hopefully back to some workshop time now.

Just one question, Mick. How are you going to clean that out when it gets full of silt? You can't rod it.

Hi Norm. It has a sump type trap at the bottom and I will suck it out with my wet vacuum as I do with the other pot traps. They cant be rodded because of the sharp bend.
