Oops

The weather's been lousy around here for a long time. As a result, fuzzbucket_cat hasn't been going out a lot, because the back yard has been covered in deep snow.

But then the weather improved, the snow melted, and the grass reappeared. So last night, we let Fuzz out.

And forgot to let him back in. I figured this out when I went downstairs this morning and found him meowing and pawing at the back door when he saw me coming.

It's windy out. Fuzz hates wind.

So I let him in.

In retrospect, I should have noticed that he hadn't come by to wake me up in the middle of the night. :)

Problem Solved!

So one of the two urinals in the men's room here at work apparently decided to die about a month ago. It spent a couple of weeks covered up with a plastic bag. The second urinal, well, being charitable about it, simply didn't flush well, as the flow of water was sub-minimal.

After a couple of weeks of this, I asked our receptionist if the building intended to actually fix the covered up urinal. And two days later, they finally did.

Since then, the urinal periodically overflows. I suspect this was the original problem. When it does, the men's room floods. I dutifully report the floods to our receptionist who calls the building to let them know that our cup, once again, runneth over.

Today, I walked into the men's room and discovered that they've fixed the problem.

They've put one of the little yellow standees down that says "Wet Floor".

Thanks, guys!
