as Freddie Mercury so aptly put it.
What started out as a plugged up problem and soon plunged us into lavatory limbo, has finally come to a successful end, draining as it was. Numerous test dumps had been successful yesterday, but one last over night gallon of ‘Super Drain Opener’ seemed to be the prudent way to go.
As i rebuilt the toilet (why not since i had it off) this morning and reset it on its new wax seal, i could feel the flush of success was near at hand. As I opened the fill valve, found no leaks, watched the tank fill, the float rise, and saw the final cease of the incoming water, I knew “I had met the enemy, and he was mine!!!!!!”
Then came the daunting task of Clean Up. But even that flowed nicely rinsing away the anxiety of the past few days. As the saying goes “And away go troubles down the drain.”
Special thanks to all of you that commiserated, offered a kind thought, shared a personal plunge, or said a little prayer.
For my next death defying adventure I‘m going to the kitchen and check the crock pot that has been crocking away all day so the Princess and i could feast on pot roast for Sunday Dinner.
