We start this morning with 2 minutes of silence so we can focus on some of the best of times we shared with our recently departed toilet. She ( or was it he?) served us to the very end, even when he/she was mortally wounded. Yesterday at 1 pm CST it was taken from us by the competent and caring people from Mr Mobile RV Repair.
It was a strange relationship we had with our biffy. It was only the last few days we found out its name and then only so we could replace it. Turns out it was called Thetford 34425, rather a strange name for a toilet don’t you think. We also learned it was ” high stature” and was bone in color. It knew so much of us, gazing up into our innards many times every day for the past 1200 days and in return, other than regular cleaning, we never even said “We thank you toilet”.
I swear I have learned my lesson. First thing I did this morning was to hug our new throne. Today we will name it and properly welcome it to our home. But first, please let me say one last goodbye to Thetford 34425.
Good bye old friend.
And the adventure continues
We travel to meet new people, see new places and take part in new adventures. Have you seen the weather warnings out for the Florida panhandle?
We are about to set out on a new adventure!
In case you missed it, there is a severe winter storm warning out for our area. They tell us it will be the worst in 25 years. They are talking freezing rain (maybe inches) sleet, snow, strong winds, the whole deal. They have already closed all the schools, universities, government offices and beyond.
They are warning the locals to prepare for this like they would prepare for a hurricane. Our TV tells us that the stores are already out of water, heaters, generators, pipe insulation and all things storm related. And here we sit, ready to report on it all. There is good news ahead though, we will be back in the 70’s by the weekend.
Today we close with one last salute to our recently departed. But before I go I want to thank you for both for dropping by and your kind thoughts in our time of need.
Ode to a Toilet
The love of my life, is not my dear wife,
But a toilet with flush, and extra thick pipes.
To take all my crap, without a mouth flap,
And when it acts up, I can shut off its tap.
