*my sis used to call mom Old Bozo when she was a wee lass.
I told Frankie and Ernie about this..after they finished rolling on the floor BOLing
they said you must tell this to blogville. I consulted Mom... she replied there are no pictures.
It is only funny with pictures. Then she said out loud P I Z A P!!!
At 11:30 pm on Sunday night (1/24/16) we were all sleeping when all of a sudden Mom, who is a very light sleeper, heard the toilet in the 1/2 bath start "ghost" flushing. That normal means just a tad of water in the tank is seeping back into the bowl and a new flapper is needed. Mom was hoping it wouldn't happen again. She was almost asleep when swish.....there it goes a 2nd time. Dad was still snoring peacefully. (FYI: In 1988 he slept soundly as a Tornado passing over our street, another true story for another time). Within just a few minutes it happened a 3rd time. My sweet mom turned into a crazed *Old Bozo,hollering to the top of her lungs she sweetly asked Dad...DID you hear that? Dad replied what? Ohhhh was that the wrong reply!!?? Now it is nearly 1 am. Dad is up, mom is up and yours truly got up to what was the cause of the commotion. Lo and behold I saw Dad lying on floor trying to turn off the valve (red arrow) this diva decided it was time to snoopervise...(not). Well the valve was stuck...even WD40 would not loosen it. By now Old Bozo was at her wits end; however, for some reason she decided to flush it and for some reason it quit running. The humans went back to bed...
Remember no real photos only man I could find in Pizap was a man dressed to go to work. MOL MOL.
Although at 1 am Dad's facial expression was pretty much exactly like this
BUT THIS FELINE WAS WIDE AWAKE and for those who don't have the pleasure of sharing your home with a FELINE...when a feline is awake .....THE ENTIRE house is awake!!
I will not say the following is true or not true...
OLD BOZO here: trust me when I tell you Madi was up and down on the bed. Walking over my head, head butting my face, blowing puffs of sweet kitty breath in my ears, and purring at 25 decibels. Each time she landed on the bed with the thump of a baby elephant. Even though we all know she is very light on her feets!! Who knew an 11.8 lb cat could be so heavy. I finally had to put her in 'timeout' in another room! She was quite annoyed with this relocation!
I called the plumber the next day...I had him replace the flapper in all 3 bathrooms and check
them for any other problems.
THAT IS MY STORY AND I'M STICKING TO IT
Old Bozo, Old Gray Mare and sometimes just Mom
ONE other question why do these things like smoke alarm batteries dying and ghost flushing happen in the wee hours of the morning?
