blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Digging hole. Replacing broken PVC pipe. Heat. Equals beating.

7.05.2008

Digging hole. Replacing broken PVC pipe. Heat. Equals beating.

Edit: Success. Well, not quite. It sprung a leak on one of the joints. So how exactly do you splice a short piece of PVC pipe? You have to put those couplings on each end which means it's too long to go in between the gap of the missing pipe that's been cut out.Ok, that's too hard to explain. Someone knows what I'm talking about and feels my pain.

Edit: Success. After one additional splice, it's holding.

Edit: You guys are doing some CSI work on the two photos. The first one was taken on the front side of the fence (that's a gap in a gate opening, not falling down.) The second was taken on the other side of the fence after significantly more digging. And, yes, even the front side has now been weedeated (sp.)

Yea, and that red clay soil is not what you call "optimal material for easy removal". Why don't you spend some of that DWI money and hire you an "immigrant" to do that diggin' for you?

It's been my experience that anything to do with plumbing, is a beating!!!!! I agree with 1:30, hire it done!

On my birth certificate under fathers occupation it says, ditch digger/laborer-honestly. Doesn't mean I want to help or anything. Just been reminiscing so much this weekend that was the first thing that popped into my mind.

Barry, if you did NOT do your research on this project, Wordypile will lambast you with plumbling websites.

1:04 Did your keenness take note that each pic is from opposite sides? It looks like the weeds are still there- peeking under the fence for those that are concerned.

637 - I only blast people with research if I have an interest in the topic. I definitely do NOT want to get involved in digging and/or plumbing problems. That kind of thing is for marathon-running Liberals.

Good work, BG. Better than I could have done.

Well, wordy, do you HAVE any interests other than research against liberal Democrats?

We anxiously await!.........

I have always heard that the first rule of plumbing is to not bite your fingernails.
