Q tip plumber!

I am a Q-Tip plumber!

Yeppers. I am. Really.

In the RV, I use Q-Tips to clean out the sink drain in the sinks. Even with the traps, catcher things, whatever you want to call them, stuff still manages to gather around the drain in the sink. So I often clean that out with Q-tips. My tub, I have a hair catcher that does a nice job. I've never had to clear the drain in the RV's tub. However, in my friend's house, there is nothing that really catches the hair. I have long hair. Their daughter has long hair. So from time to time, the tub drain clogs. Since I was a dog groomer in my previous life (& still appear to be one), I have a couple sets of hemostats that I clear the tub drain out with. But today, I did not have them handy. I wanted to clear the drain, so I grabbed the Q-tips. I quickly discovered that if you stick it partly down the drain, then twist the Q-tip, it grabs hair quite well! In fact, really well! So cool! But I opted not to take pics of that. No one really needs to see that. Yukems.

So I'll show ya'll a pretty apple bloom instead! My friends planted a couple of apple trees & a couple of pear trees 4 days after my surgery in November. Today, I noticed an apple bloom - they are really pretty blooms. So of course, I had to take pictures! Well they meaning that those blooms are pretty, but in this case, there's only this one cluster of blooms. & one bee.

Update on my recovery.

Looks like I'll be in therapy through the month of March. I'm not using or walking on the right foot correctly, so we're going for more aggressive therapy now. I just want to be done with all this now. So I hope it'll all be over by the end of March & I can March right on outta here! Well, drive actually...with Ellie. & my critters. Ellie Mae & her critters ;-)

~As always, be kind to your pets, clean up after them on your travels & respect your neighbor~

  1. Too bad you have to go through more therapy. It's better to get it right, now, then to have problems later.

    1. Yes Teri, that's true. Best to get the foot right now & not pay the consequences later.

  3. I am really happy you didn't take a photo of that blob from the drain.:-(P
    If you work really hard on your new therapy you will be much better off and ready to roll.

  5. Just checkin' in on you and trying to keep up. I may be sorry later on that I did not go to therapy after the 2 mo. home therapy visits. I seem to be walking fine but my left hip seems out and I should go to a chiropractor. Movers should be here next Thurs or Fri.

    1. Sunny, it's not too late. Now is the time to get back into therapy & get the knee going again. I hope it feels better than it did before the surgery. Are you anxious or apprehensive about the move? I'll see you in a couple of months!!

  7. Who says only hair problems can cause trouble? Heeh, hair in the shower drainage can cause trouble too! Good thing you were able to solve the problem right away. BTW, I love the apple trees being planted for you. Mother Nature is with you on your recovery. :)

  8. Just keep doing what you do, and in time, you'll be able to add another skill in your portfolio: plumbing. Isn't that nice? I can already picture you doing all the backbreaking work down the sink to address all the leaks. I’m sure your friends will be surprised and amazed once they learn about it. ;)
