Sometimes It's The Small Things...
This year, 2006, we are thankful for the small things...like Plumber's Putty. Yes, on Thanksgiving morning while making the mashed potatoes our kitchen sink plugged up. Both sides at once. Did I mention I was in the middle of cooking the dishes that we were supposed to be bringing for the family to share?
Well, thanks to lots of potato peelings, hot water, and 17 year-old plumbing, my dear husband spent some time flat on his back under the sink. The good news is that with the plumber's putty and a little duct tape (the handyman's friend!) not only did he fix the clog, but also the pin-hole leak that appeared in our old garbage disposal. We figure that it's good at least through the holidays if not longer.
Anway, after that it was all downhill. We had a wonderful time at my brother and sister-in-law's home. Dinner was delicious, and the company was even better. I hope that all the US folks had a great time as well!
