This Damned House

Monday morning........

"Hey Xav, Whadcha do this weekend?"

"Morning Kat. I bar-b-qued half a hog went bike riding went fishing went to hear Beausoleiu went to the range saved a couple of lives on overtime sparred in preparation for the next Friday night fights gelled out and did nothing don't want to talk about it."

"It's always good to talk about these things Xav........"


"So now everyone's a damned psychiatrist?"

"Relax Xav..... And change your shoes........You're tracking in mud."

Later.............

"I understand you had an interesting weekend Xav."

"It was a good 'un Doc."

"Wife said she saw Lil Darling standing in a hole with a shovel on her morning jog........"

"Ya ever notice the varieties of palm trees that folks are planting around here? I bet three quarters of them won't make it past December. Stitch?"

"'Stat. You're planting a palm that close to your house?"

"No....How 'bout that damned Venus Williams?"

"You had a chance to watch Wimbledon along with all that digging?"

"Pumper."

"Thanks."

"Ever pay a man to clean out a drain and then have him go knock a hole in your damned pipe instead of using the clean out fitting you graciously provided when you laid the sonuvabitchin' schedule 40 field line nine years ago?"

"Yeah, the assholes generally toss half a coffee can on top of the hole they break in the pipe, and cover it right back up."

"Then the roots come.........."

"Yeah......Damned roots....."

"Stupid bastards."

Sonuvabitchin' brain surgeons."

"Hey......Didcha hear about the neurosurgeon who had to get his pipes fixed? After the plumber fixed them, he handed the neurosurgeon the bill, and the Doc almost went ballistic. He did a quick mental calculation and said 'Damn.....I need to go into plumbing.......I don't make half that, and I'm a freaking brain surgeon!' The plumber said 'Yeah, I know what you mean. I didn't make shit as a neurosurgeon either.'"

"Heh......"

"Ya know....Next case is a plumber........"

"No shit? Got a coffee can?"

Wow. That looks almost exactly like mine did before I replaced it with Sch. 40. Same proximity to the cleanout and everything. Hmm.

Is (are) that (those) the main waste drain(s) from your house plumbing? Looks like 3" exiting the residence and then some reducing fittings choking the pipe size down to what 1 1/2" or 2". Also looks like the "clean out" fittings is a bullhead tee not a sweep. That would make a turn neigh impossible.

I only say this because I'm hundreds of miles away and I'm pretty sure you don't own anything with that sort of trajectory, but...

I don't think "No shit..." is the way to end that particular post. That WAS a drain line, right?

You know the advantage of being a neurosurgeon?

No one gets to dig up your mistakes...
