Frieday!

Sorry we haven't posted much this week, we are having Septic tank woes!!!!! It started Saturday, late afternoon. Mommy and Dad came home right when their oldest son, Boomer was in a panic from the bottom floor's powder room toilet bubbling up yuckies from the base of the toilet. He was grabbing everything to sop up the mess and contain it in that area. Just when he thought it was under control Grammom flushed the pot and there it went again!!! Boomer came running up for more towels............some were stained so I am going out today for new towels. The Plumber came quickly and pumped out the tank. He found that a connection to the sand mound was not sealed, only stones were put around the area. Water from the ground run off was filling our tank so after time the pump burned out. He had to come back Monday and empty the tank again because it rained. Now the Plumber has to bring a digger to be able to repair the connection properly. He installed a new pump hoping it would hold us till he could get the digger here.

Tuesday night the septic alarm went off and we had to shut down the pump. No use of water again!!! The Plumber came back and power washed the sand mound. Boy is this gonna cost Mommy and Dad many green papers!!! Oh yeah, as of Wednesday our blog has gone fluey.....Mom thinks it has to do with photobucket. Mommy says...it never rains...it pours!!!!!! We will be visiting later when Mommy returns with new towels, blankets and more cleaning supplies. Later.........

How exiting. I love big trucks!

We got sewers both at home and in the summer house, so nothing like that happens here, thankfully.
