    My rave for the day is: I hate my deck far less now that it has rugs pillows, and pretty plants.

    Catherine, I'm so glad it was simpler than expected. That's always good! I tend to be the one in the house who panics and wants to fix it with the first estimate, my husband always waits to do more research. Waiting tends to have better results. We've been on septic since 73. We get it pumped every 7 or 8 years- just 2 of us. One time we had to have a baffle replaced, the pumper person recommended the Roto Rooter. The first time we have it pumped our neighbor used his "toys" do find the top! Broke a pipe, but cleared 4 feet of dirt that was on top of the lids! The other neighbor- a plumber- fixed the pipe and put two 3 feet tall cement pipes on top of the entrance holes and lids on top so now they are only a foot or so underground. Easy to get to now!

    okay---church guys' boy(who took over after church guy/church lady moved back home again ta indyanna, & also home of Ryan White, victim) recently spent $12k on a totally-new, state-state-of-the-art septic system. it is so over-engineered & over-capacity that it could prolly service a middle school. how do you like that? thing is, one a these days, the city will come in here with a sewer line, bill us & insist we hook up, rendering septics ob-so-leet. yup. also, about 2 or 3 times a day, i take a 15-minute break for refreshments on my "deck", which is a 5 x 5" concrete front step. works fine---no overpriced treated-wood building project for mee! ha. i just sit out there & shoo the birds away from stealing MY earthworms! yup. hope that helps you kids some. thankk mee.

    IL, glad you're happier with your deck! I cleared my patio of broken glass (tree limb + glass top table = big mess!), weeds, and general debris, and - other than not having a table!- it makes me smile. I would be happier still if it weren't so bloody HOT!

    Catherine: Great outcome! So glad you didn't have to spend vast amounts.

    IL: We need pictures please.

    27th wedding anniversary today. Not bad for two people who only knew each other three months when they got married. Husband always forgets so I like to wait until the end of the day to tell him "Happy Anniversary" just to get his reaction. Mean, I know, but always funny.
