The bad news: While Andy drove from Old Forge to Boonville, the alternator belt (or something) broke, fell off, and everything electrical and vital for driving quit. And his phone was dead.
The good news: he was in the Pitts' driveway, and Brandon was home. So he could plug in his phone to call me, and do Kingdom Creations work all afternoon as he intended. And a mechanic friend from church should be able to make repairs tomorrow morning.
The bad news: Half the (carpeted) floor in our downstairs bathroom is wet, and it turns out the leak is coming from that pipe that travels from the tank to the floor. And there's no shut-off valve I've yet found. The good news: I found the leak. And our plumber friend from church should be able to come tomorrow morning to try to get it all fixed up.
The bad news: The specialty smart-TV remote, which Lewis tossed into the dish water a few days ago, seems to have decided to give up the ghost for good. So the TV is half-way to Netflix, and I'm unable to change the channel, the volume, or even turn it off. The good news: It's stuck on PBS. Of course, that currently means BBC World News America...pretty sure the boys won't be fans of this.
The bad news: The chili in the crock pot didn't get plugged in for the first 3 hours it was "cooking." And "high" for 3 plugged-in hours isn't enough to soften those beans at all. The good news: There's warm crusty bread, anyway!
When it rains, it pours. Except it's currently sunshiny. Here's to a good evening, friends!
