THAT NEVADA DESERT LOOKS EVEN BETTER TODAY
The ropes used to lasso the mustangs are attached to rubber tires to help stop their furious gallop.
Here's another photo from The Misfits: Clark Gable mustanging.
A few days ago our hot water heater quit, which meant a new hot water heater. Then last night the knob on the hot water pipe to the kitchen sink popped off and sprayed gallons on piping hot water all over the place. By the time we finally got the damned thing shut off, the house was transformed into a sauna and we were wading through hot water. The wet vac sucked up all the standing water, but the carpeting was still wet.
I awoke at 3:00 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep. Not even Paul Muni in The Life of Emile Zola did the trick. Actually it's not a bad movie; under better circumstances I might have enjoyed it. Instead, I walked into the kitchen and immediately regretted not wearing shoes as the carpet was still wet. Then I discovered a cupboard we missed when we mopped up last night when I pulled out the bag of Friskies dry cat food and its soggy bottom opened up all over the wet carpeting. And do you think those 3 cats would start helping me clean up their food? Not a one!
The insulation behind the sink must have gotten wet because the storm windows are still dripping wet, even with a wind chill factor today of 15*. Is toxic mold our destiny?
Blogging today has been a lost cause. Road Runner was down most of the day, which was only fitting as blogger was buggered most of yesterday. So, as I waited for the plumbers I paid some ungodly bills. yee-haw.
Yeeee-uuuup, that Nevada desert gets better lookin' by minute.
