Toilet Talk


This photo probably looks familiar. It made an appearance the other day. I bring it up now for an entirely different reason.

I have mentioned David, my husband, a couple of times on this blog. I have even snuck in a picture or two of him. We met at a a birthday party for a mutual friend and hit it off right away. We dated for several months doing fun things like going to South Eastern Wildlife Exhibition (SEWE) (this is a must do if you are coming to Charleston in February), Orlando, Florida, the zoo – whatever struck our fancy.

That brings us to a fine afternoon when we embarked on a toilet fixing mission. Unfortunately, the toilet in my bathroom had started running all the time and we became convinced that the entire insides of the toilet needed to be replaced. So, off to Lowe’s we went. After reading several packages of plastic parts and questioning a member of the Lowe’s team, we made our selection and headed back to my house to embark on our under taking.

Enter a few of the common tool box tools.

A willing and Abel (yes, I know that is capitalized and spelled wrong, if you are still wondering why, read this) man.

And here is what your toilet looks like without it’s tank.

After some additional cleaning and installation . . .

David got the tank put back in place with a new gasket thingy between the tank and toilet and a new red plunger thing- a-ma-bobber (these are highly technical terms here).

Onto some additional plastic piece construction . . .

Which gave way to a working toilet!

Were you taking notes? I am sure you can perform an equally skilled, inner toilet tank remod job now too!
