What is this mess all about?

Why on earth would I pull all this stuff out from the cabinet under the bathroom sink?  It's a lot of work.

The story begins when we found the faucet had a slow leak.  There was continually a slow drip into the sink.  John removed the cylinder in the center of the cold water faucet and drove to Ace Hardware to get the necessary parts--hopefully just a washer or two.  Unfortunately, though they had a whole wall of faucet parts, they didn't have anything like what came from our sink.

Next, I called Cavco, the company that built our manufactured home.  When I finally got in touch with Art, he explained they had stopped installing that kind of faucet because the company didn't even stock parts for it!  That meant we had to install a new faucet.

We were off to Lowe's for a new faucet.  Next, John crawled under the sink.  Is there a more difficult place to work than under a sink cabinet?

Job complete! We really like the new one.

But it hasn't been all work around here. We have both been spending time in our shop, making pens. And John has been copying a document to include in the genealogy book he is writing. In addition, we have been able to get together with two couples we always enjoy. We met Ron and Barbara for lunch at Kneaders. We try to get together with them often when we are in Arizona. Hopefully the weather will be cool enough as we head into November that we can go for a hike the next time we see them. No picture from that visit.

Colorado friends Larry and Betty were in the Phoenix valley to attend a wedding and visit friends. We were glad they included us on that list. It was good to see them before they moved on to another engagement.
