Plumbing issues

Posted by notthatkat on July 16, 2007

There are no photos of pretty, pretty knitting this evening because I was dealing with a major plumbing issue in the office until after I had lost all possible natural light.  This was the scene a couple hours ago:

The toilet was and still is residing outside:

This is what my bathroom looks like now:

The plumber wants to dig up the concrete and replace the faulty pipes (the way they were put in 40+ years ago is now illegal according to him).  The property owner (the retired veterinarian we bought the practice from) is reluctant to say the least.  He wants to do the same kind of slip shod patch-it-up repair that got us in this situation to begin with.  I’m just hoping this situation will hasten plans to get us in a new building.

There was knitting over the weekend.  And spinning.  Spindle spinning.  There was not time for spindling lessons, however.  Sorry, DJ; hopefully next time we’re gathered together we can make that happen.  There are not, however any pictures.   Tomorrow, if at all possible.

Instead I’ll leave you with a picture of one of my newest patients:
