So, um, does anyone have a spare $2500 to help pay for the repair of a slab leak? Unfortunately, my insurance deductible ain’t gonna help because it’s about breakeven to file a claim. Double-unfortunately, the plumber is so backed up (no pun intended), work can’t start until Thursday and will be a two-day job. The leak is related to the hot water pipes and the temporary workaround is to turn the water source to the water heater on only when we need hot water. Confused? Well, you probably should be as I’m sure I’m leaving out some important detail that connects it all together.
Well, there goes the grand Mother’s Day plans I had.
While I’m not happy for such a thing to happen, I realize it could have been worst and I already have a fantastic life, so I’m not trying to cry a river, just have a little fun with it.
To my surprise, there isn’t a single Costco in Dallas, per this article, and I verified it on their website. Of course, there are plenty in the surrounding suburbs, but not one in the actual city of Dallas.
I can’t believe Carly Fiorina didn’t save Sen. Ted Cruz’s campaign. (I really wish there was a sarcasm font.)
Cruz has stated he would eventually back his party’s nominee for president. I know he kind of backtracked off that a little. However, if he doesn’t support Trump as his party’s nominee, which seems inevitable, he would only live up to the name Trump branded him – Lying Ted. It’s going to be a bit of a catch-22 for him.
Cruz will have to return to the Senate, but I don’t think he’ll do so quietly. I have a feeling he’ll disrupt the Senate or cause some sort of big legislative obstruction before the end of the month.
Last night on WFAA, our Lieutenant Governor, Dan Patrick, stated he thinks Trump will win the presidency and will appoint Cruz to the Supreme Court.
Bob Schieffer was on the ‘CBS Evening News’ yesterday. He sounded great, but the 79-year-old looked very frail and pale. I’m a bit concerned for him.
Adding to the list of surprises, I didn’t know U2’s The Edge recently played inside the Sistine Chapel – “When I was asked to perform in the Sistine Chapel I didn’t know what to say, because usually there’s ‘this other guy’ who sings,” he told the audience, making a joke about U2’s Bono. “So it took me at least, well, 30 seconds to agree to it.”
While many people think Bono’s singing is over-rated, I always thought The Edge’s singing was under-rated.
