Dear FL,

I am alive and well and back in Texas. Thanks for all your well-wishes. I have damn near two full weeks of you guys to catch-up on; this weekend I look forward to doing just that!

Most Sincerely,



CeltManX, Devlin O' Coileáin

I'm glad you are back home. To say that was one hell of a trip is an understatement... but I'll it anyway.

Thank you ma'am, that it was. Ugh.

I hope that your return to the comfort of your own familiar home provides the needed balance of levity to the dirge you've recently been forced to dance to.

I can't wait to have your ascorbic wit pour onto my journal pages.

We left our cat for a 4-day trip and ended up staying 14? Thankfully our lovely neighbor came over to feed & water her and give her lovin's, but I need to clean the cat box, drain the hot water heater, and wash those new shirts of mine in cold water because I won't have time to take them to the cleaners this weekend.

But yeah, I'm hoping to lounge a little too.

Glad you are all safely back home, can't even imagine what you and the rest of the family have been going through!

We NEED to figure out some time to play some LAN games!

Why do you have to drain the hot water heater???? We actually have to REPLACE our hot water heater since it decided to spring a leak....we thought it was something else, has been leaking for almost 4 months now :( Fun times!

Thanks duder. "NEED" in this context is wholly appropriate. *nod nod*

catttitude thinks (and she's probably right - I work on unix systems, wtf do I really know about any of this???) that we just need to run it for a little while - it has sat so long the hot water reeks of rotting eggs/sulfer.

HOWEVER, the house dude (builder?) recommended we drain it annually with a waterhose run out the front door.

We've been here three now.

And have never done it.

I'm just saying :P

And ICKY-POO on the replacement. Ugh. What a chore. Is that something you can do yourself? Cause if so - that's awesome. Once my toilet broke in the middle of the night in Saint Louis and I had pay some dude $500 to replace it. That's how much I suck.

Nope....can't replace it myself....but we did get a replacement one for free since it was under warranty and we have a friend whose dad can install it for us and is willing to do so for $200.00, a lot less than any of the actually companies we called wanted.

Sucks about the toilet thing....I definitely could have replaced that...been there done that! Not in the middle of the night though, lol.

We were told the same thing about draining out hot water heater once a year....guess we should have listened because we have never done it either and we have been here over 4 years now I think! Guess I will remember to drain the new one though. We just got lucky that we caught it before it just thoroughly gave out and flooded out garage!

Did you BTW play Unreal Tournament 2004 with us the last time you were here???
mr_dowg at 2010-03-28 03:59 (UTC) (Link)
Nope, did not play that the last time I was there. We played "Age of Mythology"

Ooooh, that was fun too! I think you'll enjoy UT2004.
