It cost 250 bucks to clean out my septic tank!

It cost 250 dollars to clean out my septic tank.  It was 4 years since I got it cleaned,  and it was packed in there pretty good.  I could have left it over the winter,  but then you take a chance on the line plugging.  The guy from the super sucker service indicated that my pipe was long coming into the tank.  It might have been 3 inches from touching the baffle.  Then,  he indicated that he sucks from the manhole cover,  not the end covers,  which,  are smaller.

Then I dug out the bigger manhole cover.  I was thankful it was only a foot or so of gravel on top.  Some Septic tanks are deep,  like my fathers,  which is 3 and a half feet deep to get to the top of the tank.  Then,  we pulled on the manhole cover handle.  It broke off.  We finally got the cover off with a pick,  and then he done his job.

One job of digging out the port for cleaning,  left me with 2 new jobs.  I put a new handle on the manhole cover with some aircraft strength wire.  The cover alone must weight 50 lbs.  I then cut an inch off the pipe leading into the tank.  This would allow for more room for the toilet paper to drop in the tank,  without rubbing against the baffle.

I covered the tank,  and now am good for 3 years.  I put an indicator on top to find where the hole is,  in years to come.  I found the price to clean out my tank expensive.  Some regions pay around 190 dollars to clean it out.  It is for,  about a half hour to 45 minutes of work.  Maybe I am in the wrong business.  I will give up being an author,  and become,  a septic tank guru.  Have a great day,  Till then..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
