Quick Update

• They have started pouring the cement curbs around my house. The older neighbors were quite entertained by this. They all took turns gawking at the work. At this pace, they might be ready to lay the black top within a couple weeks.

• Had the new plumbing fixtures installed in my main floor bathroom. What brought this on was a leaking shower and a toilet that got clogged when you looked at it funny. I had them install a new sink faucet while they were at it, just because the old one was dated and was crusted up with dirt and water deposits. What a great feeling it is to turn the shower off and the water. stops. flowing. WOW! Just think how excited I’ll be when I make a movement and I don’t have to use a plunger when flushing.

• Someone sprayed Spar the Cat with mace or something similar. He came home last evening around 8 PM with his eyes closed/tearing and he was salivating/drooling uncontrollably. I opened the door and had to push him inside because he didn’t realize that I had opened the sliding door. He was basically blind at this time. I brought him down to the 24 emergency vet office, because at the time, I didn’t realize what was going on. By the time I reached the vet, he was recovering and had some vision. The vets were in the middle of another emergency, so I just left without seeing a vet. I tried wiping his eyes when I got home with a wet paper towel when I got back. That was a bad idea. The leftover residue on his fur was dragged into his eyes. This pissed off Spar. In order to get rid of the residue, I took Spar into the shower and let water flow over his head for a good 10 seconds. This worked. Ten minutes after his “shower”, he was much better. He was asking to go outside by the time I left for work at 1130 PM.

• I had an open house yesterday. Only two groups went through during the two hours. Actually better than I thought. It is vacation season, the construction makes the house hard to get to, and the market has slowed considerably. Probably shouldn’t have another open house until after the black top has been laid.

Barry Manilow is a weapon.

• The men’s bathroom door near Heidi’s desk is stuck open. This is making her very uncomfortable. Watching men use the bidet is very disturbing. Someone should fix the door… NOW!
