There is an old saying, “You don’t miss the water until the well runs dry.” I can neither attest to the origin nor the many situations the saying would be fitting to use. I am sure it fit my situation this week. Sunday morning we found ourselves starting to have plumbing woes with the sink drain in the kitchen.
Sunday was a beautiful day. We grocery shopped with our grandson Daniel Risk.
We had lunch and a delightful time with our daughter Starla and our son-in- law Bruce in Danville at the Mayberry Café on Monday.
That evening at dinner time I prepared a light meal for Paul and I and hand washed a few dishes. The water would not drain properly. I hand dipped the water out of the sink and called my eldest grandson Michael.
He contacted the plumbing company he uses at his residence. Within a few hours we had the help needed to fix our problem with the drain.
The men had a hard time finding the clog in the pipe and when they did their tools could not cut through It. Finally the men decided to cut a length the pipe under the house where the monster lodged and replace it .
Well deserved praise was in order.
They ask me for some cleaning supplies so they could they could clean up the mess.
Paul told them I would take care of the chore.
In a few minutes, the mess that amounted to not much more than a few drops in a bucket was cleared away; all was well and working well.
We were drained from worry, frustration and loss of sleep and Tootie was wore out from barking about the noise. She was not pleased to have snakes in her kitchen.
Naps in the middle of the day to recharged our drained batteries seemed our best option.
Maybe one day I will try out my fine built-in dishwasher next to the sink where I operate.
Though, as long as I am able and the drain works the dish job is mine. If the method was good enough for my mom the task is easy enough for me!
