Monday after work / Tuesday Morning before work

Met with the electrician last night. We went over all the aspects of the electrical and where things should be placed etc.. Howie is also my neighbor and besides being a good electrician, he is also a cool guy. I have so many lights in this bathroom.. he must think that I am nuts! A bathroom needs good lighting and I figured that I would rather have too much light vs. not enough light! He is scheduled to start on things sometime next week. The sooner that I can get all the recessed cans and ceiling fan wired up.. the sooner that I can start to cover it all up!

Tuesday morning I had a few errands to take care of..... First stop was JC plumbing supply. I went right to their service pickup location over on Capp Street. It's always exciting to see what is going on over in that neck of the woods... I think that there is some type of gravitational pull for all the wacky people to hang out on Capp Street. As I pulled up to the front of the building, some weird / crazy lady with a cigarette hanging out of her mouth was shouting at me asking if I had called her. She had some weird facial expressions and was all jerky in her motions.. I think that she was jacked up on something. I did my best to just ignore her and act like I didn't even notice her presence. She ended up stumbling away down the street yelling at every car that passed. Weird stuff....

Picked up my tub spout from JC and opened the box to find out that it was dented... looked like it had been dropped. ARGG! I brought it back and they are going to order a new one.. Hopefully this one won't take another 4 weeks.

Next stop Tool Repair shop on Evans Street to drop off the infamous Air Compressor from Vince. These guys are cool as I have rented tools from them in the past. I dropped off the bum Hitachi unit and they are going to take a look at it and let me know by sometime next week. I was hoping they could tell me the status of this much sooner, but it looks like I will have to wait. $18 bucks charged for taking a look and letting me know the status.. that's a much better deal that I thought. Fingers crossed that it can get fixed for cheap. If not?? I'm going on a search to find Vince and attempt to get my cash back.
