Apologies all, but there's no time to ramble this morning.
We've been without water since Friday (!), when our hot water heater gave up the ghost. Water was just pouring out of the bottom. It's so old that the valve on top that is supposed to cut off supply to the heater wouldn't budge, so we had to cut off water to the house.
We thought the new water heater was coming on Saturday, but apparently Lowe's plumbing department doesn't know how their installation department works--or doesn't on weekends.
I'm moving booths today (more on that later), so I have to run. I took a quick wash up using some of Keith's camping supplies. I'll do a proper ramble later in the week.
The worst part about having no water is trying to explain to Chiquito that the bathroom faucet isn't working. He doesn't seem to believe it.
