Lizzie's Little Piggies!

See that round silver thing above Lizzie's little piggies?? I thought it's sole purpose was to keep the tub from overflowing? Mine must be faulty cuz I started the bath, headed downstairs for a minute, had a phone call, then another phone call, you know how it goes, right? Then out of the blue I heard a dripping, that grew to a frantic dripping, and "OH MY GOSH, I gotta go" Click.

I ran upstairs, and just as I had suspected, at least an inch of water all over the bathroom floor. By the way, the only way to unplug an overflowing tub, after turning off the offending water of course, is to reach your arm down into the tub - causing more overflow onto the floor as a side affect.

Luckily - hard wood floors upstairs, stained concrete downstairs, 10 minutes later all was cleaned up and fine - except Jake's Keyboard which was directly under the tub on the first floor. It is presently laying upside down and will hopefully still be functional.

Just wanted to share my excitment for today! :)

How funny - but then not funny! Hardwood floors come in handy!

That overflow thingy only works for times when it is just a teeny bit too high. It's pretty easy to quickly bypass it. Hope the keyboard survives. My son just doused his with a glass of water a few days ago and it seems to be fine now

shellmo - it wasn't funny for few minutes of terror - but then I laughed the whole time I mopped.

Citizen - so good to see you back! I suppose that must be true, cuz bypass it I did! Encouraging about your son's keyboard, hopefully that will be the case here.

The Arrow And The Song

(1)

I shot an arrow in the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where; ;

For so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.

(2)

I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;

For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song?

(3)

Long, long afterward, in an oak

I found the arrow still unbroke;

And the song, from beginning to end, ,

I found again in the heart of a friend. 。
