It works!

I may have implied, here and there in posts about The Secret Lair, that in matters of building stuff I’m not exactly Bob Vila. That implication is correct. Hell, the first time I tried to hook up the cabin electrical to power, the inverter exploded. Wonder the whole place didn’t burn down. Damn it, Jim, I’m a writer – not a contractor.

Hence my pleasant surprise every time something goes right…

I’ve got my very own flush toilet!

    Woo hoo…. I have spent a few too many moons using the too hot in the Summer, too cold in the Winter outhouse or a bug ridden jungle hut with a pit to not know that a good indoor commode a cause for celebration.
    Is that a shower enclosure in there too?

    It’s lovely! I’m a huge fan of indoor plumbing. Now put the seat down.

  5. NEVER put the seat down : ) And the offset is good, plenty of room for a basket of reading material…

    Because Yay ! Little Bear has an indoor drinking fountain he can share with his posse.

    {Meanwhile Click thinks … Well there goes the neighborhood. Where’s the Cat’s drinking fountain?}

    Sheesh ….
    There goes the romantic image of a lone desert hermit struggling against Nature via his wits and skills.

    To be replaced by …
    the 21st Century lone desert hermit struggling against Nature via his wits and skills. Hmm …

    Obviously you’re not afraid you’ll lose the latrine digging skill set I take it?

    Enjoy the luxury.

    The septic system that makes that toilet go has required so much digging that I’m unlikely to ever forget it.

    Oh, and the seat stays up. I’m a rebel.

To the stake with the heretic!
