I AM JOE THE PLUMBER!!! And don't forget it!

I just fixed my toilet - all by myself - and I AM.....Joe the Plumber!
Being married to a real PLUMBER for so many years had it's benefits. Believe it or not, I even know what a basin wrench is and how to use it! I am so, the bomb!

Basin wrench is used to loosen the faucet nuts under the sink when a normal wrench won't fit in the space.

Thedaughter has mastered the art of running into a room and yelling, "something is wrong with this or that" and never tries to fix that problem. I have my own power tools (just like Tim the Toolman) and know how to use them - so watch out.

Just a little NON-political thought for the day - that felt good!

I can't fix our commode, but I can glance at a floor and tell you what is wrong with it.

Turns out, after nine years at my job, I can pretty much tell if you've screwed up your flooring.

Now, what exactly IS a basin wrench?
