Array ( [sid] => 185945 [catid] => 1 [aid] => mick [title] => Leaky Tiki [time] => 2019-03-01 19:34:17 [hometext] => We heard the soothing sound of rushing water...it was coming from under the house... [bodytext] => It started with a little leak underneath our slab;
And swiftly grew (who knew?) into an eight thousand dollar tab.
Three plumbers came to bang and saw and rip apart the walls.
Leaving holes in every room while they replaced it all.
For seven days they dug and soldered, grunted, groaned and cussed.
The garage was filled with tools and pipes; the house with ghostly dust.
But I am now the owner of a brand new water system!
Although Im thankful for their skills, I canít say I will miss them.

Cause now I need a drywall guy to patch and sand and fill;
Followed by a painter to roll and brush until
It looks more like a home to us than a construction site.
For easy monthly payments pledged beyond my afterlife.

I agree with Raker..Im learning how to do so much on my own so i can save some of that money that would
end up in some other saps pocket . lol
Plus keeping more money in the bank helps keep my
wife happy . lol
And plus if anything goes wrong I dont have anyone
to blame but myself
another great and brilliant poem my friend

what a drain on the finances,
and the tearing apart of ones
special place, the home.
Your wit is needed, as well
as the patience that will be required,
and it is good that you already seem to know
that you will get past this, making
your home a better place.
These things that just come up out of the
blue truly are a challenge,
but you seem to have the blueprint
for how to survive.

Hanging dry wall, oh boy, now that
is a fun job.
SW, sorry for your spate of bad luck.
Hope you/'/ll be okay...

I/'/d come over to help if I could.

Peace!

I`m thinking "oh my" while giggling. I`m glad you can create humor from what`s a huge drag!!! You`ve created a perfect parallel between the bad and the laughable. You are definitely an artist.

At least if the loan`s defaulted after you`ve passed on, they can/'/t come get you.

Sorry you had to go through this mess.

Sir Timmy
