Gone fishin'

We took the kids fishing at a local pond three weeks ago--not a bite.

The husband went fishing a week and a half ago--the whopper got away (he had a witness).

Check out the giant I caught this morning!
Never know what you're going to catch down the kids' bathroom sink. I know for a fact that this is not human hair from any of my family members! It is brown hair and my daughters are the only long-haired individuals who use that bathroom [and they have red and blonde hair].

So, this is my money-saving suggestion for now: Keep those wire hangers handy for fishing down the drain now and then. No harmful chemicals from harsh cleaners (a.k.a. Liquid Plumber, Drano...) and no plumber's fee (and no plumber's crack--thank you, lord!)

That is gross. I'd bet I will fish out a lot of blond hair.

Ick. Funny though. Our high council YSA rep spoke to us Sunday, and was clearing out his own clog over the weekend. And, of course, he used it for a Gospel analogy. :-)

The song playing was Josh. *sigh*

Wow! That's all I can really say, wow.

They make this white plastic tool with barbs (about 2' long) that you can get at a hardware store for like $3. You twist it on down the drain and the barbs grab all the hair and yuck when you pull it out. Nasty, but it works, and it's a little nicer to the pipe than a coat hanger.
