Faucet, Scout Guide, Hug ‘n Roll.


I spent some time this morning replacing Nat’s shower faucet.  The shower diverter had been malfunctioning for a month (!) and they were taking makeshift showers with a bucket.  Anyways, with the holidays coming, I needed to fix this right away.  They had only one shower faucet model in stock that I could use at (my favorite store) Home Depot and, although it works perfectly now, there is this 1/4 inch space from the shower wall to the faucet edge which is driving me bonkers.  To really fix it, I either need to special order the right length faucet and wait for it to come in (which would take a while – a week?) or I could have (today) shortened the pipe a bit.  But this would have taken another 90 min and would have involved a butane torch and another trip to Home Depot, so I let it be. Other things needed to get done today, and frankly, the shower works!  Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.  Sometimes.



Vince got elected to a leadership position tonight at scouts.  It is called “Guide” which, according to Vince, is the easiest leadership position that one can have.  This is exciting because he thought, when I dropped him off at the election meeting tonight, that he wasn’t going to be able to have any position at all which he was kind of resigned to – it’s hard to tell what he really wants because he hides behind various statements about various things being “lame” even though I think he really wants to do them.



Edda is messing with me, as usual.  She was sound asleep and then 15 minutes later, here she is:


Then 15 minutes later, she asleep again only after I have both my arms and my legs trapped under her body.  Had to implement Ross’s hug ‘n roll.  Good night all!  See you on the other side.

  1. Good for Vince. I just attended what I thought would be my last Eagle Scout ceremony but who knows maybe Vince will be my last.
