I am amateur plumber, hear me roar!

Have you ever heard of a ballcock assembly? Yea, me too but did you know that the doohickey that shoots water into the back of a toilet is call that as well?

Now imagine going into a Canadian Tire and asking if they could point you to the ballcocks. Could you do it with a straight face? I couldn't. I am rarely accused of being mature and this was way beyond me. So I saved my dignity and wandered around until I found what I was looking for.

Good news the downstairs bathroom is back in normal working order and I am now the self appointed Queen of Ballcocks!

My only excuse for that bit of sillyness was my mood at the time. I was riding a europhic high being able to fix the toilet thus saving myself a ton of cash. Also there was the added bonus that my hubby's reaction was "the bathroom is broken, who should we call?"
I did it all by myself...well ok my brother was the one who told me that doohicky is called a ballcock *giggle*

LOL congrats on fixing the toilet.

I grant you the Mulligan! hope the heavenly hash is continuing to work. the reese's did its trick for me.

And a road trip to BC sounds like a great tax write off to me! if not there is always fodors and websites *sigh* That's the way i have been vicariosly visiting Nevada and Brazil for settings in two of Marissa's WIP's

Will be checking in Monday to see if the graph moved!

OMG Thank you so much Maureen. You know I completely forgot about Fordors! *smacking forhead* I've been scouring the Vancouver airport website this evening trying to get an 'eye' for it and where my character will be.
I'll have to take a trip to Chapters on Monday.
