The builder arrived

with a bag full of rods which he screwed together and pushed up and screwed another one and pushed up and pushed up the drainpipe to the roof until suddenly he fell backwards and we were showered with the twiggy nests and feathers of all the birds in the neighbourhood.

  3. we don't have drainpipes around here, "newer house" compared to the historic district, but i'm not complaining. it's just one less thing to worry about here on the plantation! (i'm catching up reading and writing. going out to the west coast sort of set me back.) xoxoxox

  4. Oh! I feel the need to have a go at this. I would love to have some sort of control over all my pipework.
