Now where was I? It’s just the weather, or the full moon…More technical problems.

Another day in the life…or how come this is happening? We left the story two weeks before this week with some pipes bursting, gas stove sputtering and thinking that everything would be fixed.

That same evening the hot water heater stopped working, when I turned on the faucet the water was icy cold. It seemed to me that at that moment “to throw away the lead” (a bridge card game ploy) and leave it until the next day.

Bright and early the next morning a text arrived from the building owner, the other tenant had no water. Do I have water? Well yes, I have water, but no hot water.

Some days later, the news was not good. A new water heater was needed. (Yes, people you read me correctly.) Saturday the old heater was fired up one more time. Quick to the shower! The hot water was brief. Monday the new heater was installed. (Fantastic! But no.) Ha! There’s only a dribble of water coming out of the tub faucet.

Texting begins: the faucet in the tub is not working. Sent with video and another video view by request.

Oh and! the Gas repair for Monday was put off until Wednesday…there were too many people in line for gas services. (Recap: I have no stove/oven and working with a hot plate. Okay, Wednesday)

(What? you are kidding me.)


Wednesday was a big day. The plumber, a nice guy, with old dude sidekick, showed up and decided to replace the faucet in the bath. It works! In the afternoon, the gas repair person took a look at the stove and said he had to look through the database to see if there were parts to the old girl. It was a vintage Sunray stove.

After some time, the owner and the repair guy returned after shutting the gas off in the basement. He said the stove would have to be replaced. There were no replacement parts. He said he loved these old stoves. They are better than the new ones. The stove was from 1940. Bye. bye old friend.

It’s tax season, ugh. Enough said.


Here’s a couple of Photos from last week from Lake of the Isles.
