A little bit of humor...

First watch this video...I may have shown it before. If so forgive me; I think when you watch the next one you will realize why I show this one.

Then just take a few more seconds and watch this one....

I am not sure if Sarah got 'how an elephant goes' from the Tim Conway/Carol Burnett thing, but every time Lorelei does it, she reminds me of the them.

I had another night of no least not till it was about daylight. I was going to bed about the time the local morning news came on. I slept 2 or 3 hours before I started the day.

We had to go to Terre Haute and get a new water heater...ours has had a leak. I was afraid I would come home someday to a foot of water in the basement. So we picked up a new one, came home, and I helped Roger get it down in the basement, and left him getting ready to put it in. I had gotten some new birdseed and wanted to fill my feeders...then got into something else.

I went down there in a bit, to find a big puddle of water...the 'faucet' that served as the drain at the bottom of the old water heater had broken off when Roger put the hose on it and tried to turn it on. So ended up helping him clean that up before he had to go to the hardware store and pick up a couple fittings.

Anyway, it is in and working fine...and I no longer have to think about coming home to a flooded basement.

Lorelei is cute as always :-)
Don't you hate jobs that start small and then become a mess?? Fortunatly for us there is a floor drain real close to the water heater, washer and dryer!

Hi Mary, I loved the Carol Burnett show... There aren't many that can make me laugh like that one did... SO funny!!!!! Love Lorelei's elephant noise!!!!!

Sorry you had to get a new water heater ---but it's better to be safe than sorry.

Get some SLEEP.

It's always wonderful when you don't have to worry about a flooded basement.
Thanks for sharing the videos with us. I once saw Tim Conway in person, and his comedy is hilarious.

It was fun to see Lorelei again. My how she's grown!
The Tim Conway video was hilarious!

What a funny skit! Yes, I can see why Lorelei's elephant imitation reminds you of Tim Conway. :)

We got a new water heater last year! Well, at least you and I won't be needing another for a while. :)

This was just too, too funny! Lorelei is such a doll!

Oh water heater woes, but glad you're all repaired now.
