That mouse pic reminds me of a cheap rental house I lived in years ago.
I woke up early one morning and headed downstairs to the bathroom to answer nature's call. As I walked into the bathroom, I flipped on the light and there was a decent-sized rat half-sitting, half-floating in the bowl, soaking wet and looking unhappy. It took two flushes to get him down....

Okay, I actually got something done to the bus

After trying to break bolts loose, I said &%$#@@ and broke out the grinder and zip,zip,zip



couple hits with a hammer and



hopefully get some metal this week, and drop tire so I can extend the back frame rails and start on the veranda

also need to redo plumbing since I added tub and moved toilet, cut and glue, easy

oh I need to clean crap from under bus, it is a small pile going to scrap yard, I backed over it and forgot it
