    My husband went under our house to insulate the pipes. I knew exactly where he was because he kept hitting his head on the beams and saying “bad things”. For Christmas that year I bought him a hard hat (like they wear on construction jobs”. Saves a lot of scars and swearing.

    You say Alfie always enjoys his vacations… could that possibly be because he is exempt from having to fix broken water pipes and other such mishaps? (said a bit tongue-in-cheek). Anyhow, I am glad your hubby got the problem fixed, even if it did take three trips to the hardware store.
