The weekend has arrived and it's bringing with it some early morning sunshine that will disappear behind dour clouds sometime this afternoon. More rain is approaching. The prediction is for it to be heavy at times, like last week, and... like last week, it's supposed to hang around until sometime on Monday. Now, don't that make you wish you were part duck?
I do have to work today. I'm not expecting the flooring and decor departments to be busy. Hardware and Garden are where all the buckos are going to be spent, with possibly some in paint as a few people think a new coat of paint in necessary to impress the friends and relatives. There was a time when it used to be flooring people wanted to make those impressions and we were forced to stick to a specific calendar in order to insure installation in time for Christmas. Not anymore. This doesn't mean that some uniformed soul isn't going to walk into the department believing we can put in a new floor within the next 7 days.
Because I can afford it, and because I simply despise commercials, I upgraded my Disney and Hulu to commercial free. I did try watching the channels with commercial breaks and realized that my brain required continuity. Maybe it was because all of the advertising was for products I have zero interest in purchasing.
Back when I had Pronto plumbing install the water water hookups on the second floor for my laundry, one of the workmen informed me that I'd been given some sort of filter that I probably didn't know I needed. Chances are if you don't know you need it, you probably don't, and the only thing it's doing is adding another charge onto your bill. Well, the filter they were talking about was in the bathroom faucet. What it did do was drastically reduce the water pressure from the tap. At first, I though the drop in pressure was because of the washer, but then I realized the true source, this stupid filter, and immediately began trying to remove the damn thing. I ended up buying a tool, and this past week managed to break part of the filter out. Water pressure is back to normal. This is the little devil that was causing the problem and the tool that took it out.
