It seemed like the right day to fix Dan’s garbage disposal. Overcast skies, light snow and nothing better to do. And he’s been waiting a couple months now. He mostly eats out so this is not a great inconvenience. We don’t know how to repair a garbage disposal but it didn’t look that hard on the Internet Machine we consulted.
We took a stab at it, to no result, and were grateful when Andrew called to see what was going on. We enlisted his help, he came over and we took it out, squirted some oil on it and whadda ya know. It was spinning again.
The hardest part was finding a parking place for a plumber and tools.
|This is the best we could do for a photo of Plumber's Crack. Sorry.|
We reinstalled it and then decided what the problem was. Metal, water and rare usage and the thing just rusted up. Dan just didn’t use the appliance often enough. We told him to spin it once in a while and we’d be good to go.
We retired to the ground floor and relaxed to the Christmas tunes turned out by some jug band at the Global Market.
It was just the right day to fix Dan’s disposal.
|Here comes Santa Claus.|
