Fine Feathered Furniture

Oops!  that should be Leathered . Lol

Not only did the lady leave the library legacy, but lovely leather loungers, as well!!

Clean, uncluttered couch!

 

 

Oops, forgot to take shot of the 2 recliners!  Sorry!  Look just like the couch, except… they are recliners.  Lol, I’m here, Capt. Obvious again!

 

 

My old recliner “Old Blue Bomb” was shot. And needed to be put out of its and my misery.

I was so thrilled when I walked in and saw these 3 pieces! I looked around in disbelief- she surely will be coming back!! She couldn’t be leaving this!!

Sat right down, reclined and body said “ah!” A sigh of contentment! Butt not dragging the floor!!

There is a little bit of damage on one of the recliner arms.

Yeah, this one looks like it needs amputating!  Don’t worry, it’s just a flesh wound!

But I ‘ve got some material to cover that up in a trice!

Real living room furniture again. Yay!!

Now, how do you dye large leather pieces???

T(r)ank Trouble

Oh the multi-splendored joys of home ownership.  (Did the sarcasm come thru okay?)

I’m having…. tank troubles… as in my toilet tank.

I love the color, but I'm very puzzled. How do you flush it??

I love the color, but I’m very puzzled. How do you flush it??

It worked when I first moved in,

This is how it's SUPPOSED to work.

This is how it’s SUPPOSED to work.

then suddenly it wouldn’t flush.  Called in the handyman, better known as sweet friend, the chain was broken.   A few minutes and 1 bent paper clip later

Ta Da!  It worked again!  Magic!  (BUT!!  the chain was TOO long now, so you had to lift the tank lid a little, so the doo-hickey wouldn’t hit the top.) sigh  (Of COURSE it was too long, did ya SEE the size of that paper clip???)

That’s okay, I just waited till it broke again, and asked for a smaller paper clip.  Ain’t I brilliant!!   (I didn’t get that college degree fer nuttin, ya know!)

A little later, it was running all the time, and wouldn’t flush AGAIN!!   This time, the rubber gasket was not sealing right, so it constantly drained.  And wouldn’t you know it, all these things ALWAYS happened in the middle of the night!   How does that HAPPEN???

Want to! Just can't!

Want to! Just can’t!  I wish this sign hadn’t been written in invisible ink!!

So, once again, a SOS call went out.  (in the morning!  I didn’t call him right then.  I’m not a sadist.)  Like magic, he fixed in a trice.  (Don’t ya just love that word – trice??  We need to start a campaign to bring it back into popular circulation!   Who’s with me??)

Several weeks go by, then a repeat of the same frustration.  ERGH!  So, I decided to take a peek for myself.  This time, the top link had slipped out of the hole in the end of the stick.  (There’s probably a real name for it – flush lever?? )
nasty toilet lever(not my toilet- you can find anything on google!)

Tried to mend it, but failed.  Probably due to my fat fingers, and being wet.  Yes, yes, that’s it! Because my fingers were wet!   So humiliating to be toilet- flushable- challenged.

And, here I sit blogging, instead of asking for help.  Thinking about buying stock in Depends.
