I believe that's only needed for commercial parks. I guess I could charge
the local kids admission but it's still a bit too cold out for that kind of
thing. I don't want to keep the water park motif in the garage until spring.

The toilet now has a mandrel bent chromed supply line.

I retired in November and moved back into my home in Atlanta. I was renting
an apartment while I was in Texas. My squadron in Atlanta decommissioned in
June 2004 and I only had 14 months left to retirement. My wife had a good
job here, my oldest daughter was in college here, and my youngest daughter
was starting her senior year in high school. Instead of moving the whole
family I went to Texas alone.

I have insurance but the deductible is $500 and the plumbing bill was $350.
The plumbing part isn't covered by our insurance so that's $850 already
spent. The wife wants some upgrades too. We are thinking about putting a
tile floor in the bathroom and replacing the carpeting with hardwood. While
the workmen are here she wants them to remodel the master bath too. I want
better lighting and some additional electrical outlets for the garage. We'll
see how much it's going to cost in the end.
