Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



Get Your Mind Into The Gutter Of The Gutter

My Plumbing Invention: To safeguard against leaks in pipes you could install a system of connected trays, like a rain gutter, under the pipes that would channel any leakage to a centralized location for easier monitoring. But then I thought, "What if there is a leak in the SOCT?"

Then I thought you could just add a SECOND system of connected trays, a wider rain gutter under the first rain gutter, SSOCTuSOCT. Now I just need some Dr. Suess type rhymes and pictures to explain and diagram before sending it to the Patent Office.

My friend Tony asked: why not just build an all concrete house with a cone bottom and a french drain?

My response to Tony was: French dries? How about American dries instead?

So then I read about French Drains - see Wikipedia Article: French Drain

Follow Up Response: Oh, THAT kind of French Drain, no, I thought you said 'dryin', a French Drain is far down in the ground and out of sight. The SOCT and SSOCT are elaborate in your face Picasso-esque structures bordering on the physics of Salvador Dalí with a touch of M.C. Escher.

Texas English is a wonderful thing - drain & dryin are almost homonyms. Several years ago at an art exhibit I overheard a bit of confusion between the artist and a customer, one of them said "monkey wrench" and the other heard "monkey ranch", and they had to go back and forth a little bit to get the correct translation, then they both erupted in laughter, which required no translation.
