Mister Fixed My Shower Leak . . .

Well, maybe he didn’t fix it, but he did help me find it. Turns out that there was a gap between the floor plan and sidewall that only showed up when there was someone in the shower. But standing up in the shower you couldn’t see the gap.

So the other day when I was down on my knees outside the shower checking for leaks, curious Mister was in the shower, and his weight was enough to show the crack. So as a temporary test I put a strip of Gorilla Tape over it and left it a couple of days to be sure that was the problem. And it was. No more leak.

Sometime in the next few days I’ll re-caulk it.

Thanks, Mister.

Today was really nice, with temps in the mid 60’s and a lot of sun, so Jan and I did a 1/2 mile walk around the park. The last time we walked regularly was back in April when we were in Apache Junction, and it felt good to be doing it again. We’ll do a few days at 1/2 mile and then start working our way up to the 1-1/2 miles we’ve done in the past.

After our walk, Jan and I, along with Mister, sat outside and enjoyed our coffee and muffins. Well, Mister didn’t have coffee and muffins. He just found a warm sunbeam, curled up, and went to sleep.

Around 3:30 Jan and I headed up to Kemah, dropping off our last Christmas card at the PO, before dropping Jan off to get her haircut. Then we headed across the parking lot for dinner at Chili’s. For dessert we split a piece of their new Pumpkin Spice Lava Cake. Really, really, really good.

If you feel the need for speed, check this Hennessey C7 Corvette as it hit 200 MPH on a Houston, Texas Toll Road. The Corvette is stock except for the Hennessey 600 HP upgrade plus the 100 HP Nitrous Express Kit, for a total of 700 HP. Well, the suspension and brakes are stock, anyway.

200 MPH on a Texas Toll Road

The run took place on December 11, 2013 on a new section of Toll Road that’s due to be opened this coming Saturday.

Wonder if the EZ-Tags still work at 200 MPH?

  1. Not sure about EZ tag, but the license plate camera got a nice picture of the plate at 200 mph. Nice Car!

  2. Rob,

    If you’ve got enough money to buy that car, you’ve got enough money to have one of those James Bond’s revolving license plates.

    These days you could tie it to the speed limit settings on your GPS so that the tag rotates as soon as you exceed the posted speed limit.

  3. So, the moral to the story is…It pays to have a fat cat! lol Merry Christmas!

  4. Chris,

    There’s not a lot of uses for a fat cat, but at least there is one.

  5. There is no end of ways that Mister makes himself useful, is there?? Hilarious!! Glad it worked to help you figure it all out and that is the end of the trouble…links are a bad thing!!

    Heh, wowee, someone sure has it in for you over at Nick’s blog eh?? I wonder if Nick will soon limit the number of times someone can post?? Hope so. Sadly have seen the same number of attacks in similar situations elsewhere…people seem to think they and their thoughts are original?? You tried your best!! Once again, no doubt Nick is glad you are his friend!!
