Don the plumber

Kathy, 2 posts in 2 days. You have inspired me. Thanks my friend 🙂

We woke up today with no water. It has been cold, but not cold enough to freeze the water pipes. But thinking that had to be the reason, I turned on the faucets to get the water running. The temps were in the mid 40s today, so when we still did not have water at 1pm I called the plumber.

And not just any plumber. Don the plumber. He answers his phone immediately, comes as soon as he can (no 3 hr time frame) and teaches me the reason behind the problem. And, he puts me to work. Today I had to get my hair dryer and extension cord to help thaw the well head.

He gets excited when he can solve a problem. You can see it in his face. And he loves our kids. He has seen them grow up over the years. He first came to help us with water problems when Aidan was in Kindergarten and Samantha was in pre-K.

He looks a bit like the handyman from One Day at a Time.

But our water problem was not freezing, instead a faulty pressure gauge. Not a problem for Don. He made a quick trip to Lowes for a new gauge and also picked us up some vegan cupcakes.

Samantha (AKA Sparkle Rainbow) really liked the cupcakes 🙂

So life is all good as we prepare for the first major storm of 2016. Fingers crossed we keep power!
