One of Those Yards

You know those houses that have a big tub in the back corner with all sorts of crazy things growing out of it? And you always wonder, how the hell did a bathtub end up in their backyard? Well, lemme tell you. Yesterday, Tommy did a little demo in our upstairs master bathroom so that the electrician could pull through some wires to the upstairs. (We stopped using that bathroom about six months ago because the shower/tub leaked and we removed the plumbing for the toilet.) Tommy removed everything and put most of it on the floor of our bedroom where it still lives. The rest of it made it to the backyard. He usually puts stuff in his truck and carts it away for us, but for some lucky reason we get to enjoy the toilet and sink in our backyard for a while.

Tommy does little odd jobs for us. He did most of the framing and helps with things like the bathroom demo. He also has a pickup truck which is incredible because we used to pile up all the junk and rent a U-Haul truck to take it to the dump. Dealing with U-Haul and shoveling dirt and junk in and out of the back of a U-Haul and then dealing with the dump is not one of my favorite activities. Having Tommy take it away is fantastic. Maybe he left the toilet in the backyard just to remind us how wonderful this service is...We appreciate you, Tommy!
