Here's hoping that everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We did. It's why I didn't post last week.
I started a long post about blogging and Internet anonymity, but I've come to the end of the day and ran out of time so...
We have a leaky faucet. I took it apart to fix it. It needs a new brass nut because some moron put on a steel one a long time ago. Guess what? Steel + water + time = rusted and broken nut.
So I went to the local hardware store (and I mean local as in locally owned, not local as in the big box store that is around the corner) and went to their two aisles of various bolts, nuts and screws. They had about 12 square feet assigned to brass bolts, nuts and screws and guess what? I couldn't find one that fit.
Why is nothing standard in this house?
