The Tail of the Jiggly Shower Handle
The nice couple who sold us their winter home, now our year around resort, gave us this gas fired charcoal patio piece. We have our furniture waiting for some serious pool side lounging ahead.
Our Shower Handle Fixture has a loose screw, right behind the handle, and thus inaccessible to tighten without removing the handle. Our handy man told me you just take it off, tighten the screw and everything is easy peasy.
Problem is that the handle has a hex bolt, and my hex set has one too small and the next one too large. Again I am the frustrated un handy man.
In a few days we will sign the final loan papers to own our retirement home down the street. The owners have emptied it, and cleaned it, and locked it up except of one window into the living area. It was fun to walk around it after all these 14 years of admiring it when I passed by.
Now the endlessly tedious and difficult task of boxing all the breakables and preparing all the moveables, and leaving this house in the same clean and attractive manner as our sellers.
The big difference, I will not be rising to head to work at 8am, and work the weeks and the weekends. Working out what our days will be like with lots of help from out friends.
