This last month has been an interesting one for us. It started with our dishwasher. It broke down, and the only appliance repairman left in town couldn’t determine what was wrong when he first examined it.
While he was trying to figure out the problem, my wife and I both had to leave town (for different reasons) for one day. I got home first, and found our basement starting to flood due to rain. I called Thrasher (the company that installed the drain system in our basement, and a supposedly upgraded sump pump) and the earliest appointment they could give us was 3 weeks away. So, when the appliance repairman came back to look at our dishwasher, I asked him if he knew anything about sump pumps. He did.
He got our dishwasher and sump pump fixed in the same visit. We were very happy to see our basement return to a dry condition. When the representative from Thrasher finally arrived, he did a full assessment of the situation, and said that because of the extra shallow water table in this area, we needed some modifications to the drain they built – part of it covered by warranty and part of it new work. The total on our new work will be just over $800 USD.
While all of that was going on, I got the book Anita ( my dear friend and spiritual sister) sent to me, as she mentioned in a comment to an earlier blog. Because of weather and other physical factors, I have to admit that I have not yet started to read it – but I want to with all of my heart. My delay is because of what I said in earlier posts about observing proper study conditions.
Anyway, here’s today’s inspiring thought:
