Hello, my dear Raisinettes! I haven’t been kidnapped, just enjoying time with my crazy sister (yeah, I’m the normal one 😛 ). Just stopped by to wish you all a happy holiday. I miss you, and I’ll be back during the week. Mmmmwwwaaahhhhhhhhhh!!!!! ♥
Now behave yourselves, or Santa won’t bring you any presents.
Back in December, 2009, the talented and handsome Distributorcap made a movie to celebrate the 1,000th postiversary of the Raisin. He was kind enough to surprise me with another Dcap production. So, get out the popcorn, grab a soda, get all gussied up for the red carpet premiere.
From Charles Wowkanech, president of the New Jersey state AFL-CIO at North Jersey.com:
ON LABOR DAY, we recognize the hard-working men and women who keep our nation running. Yet we must not forget the millions of people who have lost their jobs due to our unprecedented economic conditions.
Regardless of employment status, we all share a common goal to raise a family and provide a better future for our children. It is this aspiration that has built our country’s middle class and has instilled a sense of purpose for generations of American families.
However, something seems to have changed, and the promise of a job and a middle-class life is becoming harder and harder to come by in this country.
Have fun and be safe, my dear Raisinettes!
Sorry I wasn’t around yesterday. Well, I was around and read your comments, but I was just too dead tired to answer. We left off with 2 possible leaks and the water left on. Here’s the rest of the story. I was so looking forward to a nice hot shower Thursday night to get all the dirt off me and to soothe my achy muscles. I turned on the water, pulled the lever that redirects the water from the tub spigot to the shower, and there was just a bit more than a trickle. What the hell? I turned the water on and off, but always with the same result. I was too tired to worry about it, so I got in the shower and ran from drop to drop in order to get wet and then rinse off.
I got up early (not bright and early, because I am not a morning person, and I only got a couple of hours’ sleep), and I went into the kitchen. I checked where the leak had been, and there was no water! Mike (not Joe) the Plumber had said he would return between 8 and 9 Friday morning, and he got here right on time, 9:30. He brought the shiny new water heater (not hot water heater, because that would be redundant 😛 ), and took it out to the back outside closet. I told him there was no water on the floor in the kitchen, and he went to look. He didn’t see any either. He said that that meant that there was probably no loop leak after all, and the ground had probably been saturated from the
xhotx water heater after all. That was good news. However, the sceptre of the evil polybutylene pipes still hangs over my head (literally and figuratively, as a lot of it is in the attic).
I apologize, Raisinettes, but there’s been some trouble at Raisin Headquarters (or should I say Headquwaters?). You see, I went into the kitchen last night, and there was water all over the floor.
