Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

I don't know how you're decorating YOUR house this season...

...but we're thinking outside of the box.

Yeah, this is my living room, and I must say, that I'm tickled pink with how small the hole in my living room floor actually is.

No, really.

Before you jackhammer your floor to fix a leak in your sewer pipe, I highly recommend hiring a plumber with a camera and leak-locating equipment to come out first. It was the best $250 we've ever spent.

We ought to have the patch on and the hole re-filled by this evening. Then I'll give it about a week for the concrete to cure before replacing the bamboo flooring.

Home ownership, its not one thing, it's six or seven others.

If you put a live Christmas tree in a pot there and covered it with a tree skirt nobody would be the wiser. As long as you kept the tree watered you would have all of January to think about fixing the floor while you told everybody that you liked to keep the tree up to be festive.

January, forget that you should be good for July or August at least.

This is one of the many things I hate about this part of Florida. All of the houses around here are built by DYs who scrape the sand flat and then pour a slab. This insures good flooding in hurricanes, as well as difficult plumbing problems if there are leaks or stoppages, or just the desire to put in a new bathroom. Real Florida houses used always to be somewhat elevated above grade, with at least a crawlspace under them.

I used to live in one of those slab floor homes.
