Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda

Who'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me?"
Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
Who'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me
And he sang as he watched and waited 'til his billy boiled,
"Who'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me?"

No this is not another ear worm - but I bet it is stuck in your head now...

Matilda is actually Herman's new trailer and we have been waiting for her like you wait for a pot of water to boil. I got word today that she is moving her way down the manufacturing line and is due to be 'born' on March 1st.

She will have extra floor supports on top of being XXL for the 17.2 beastie.

Reef has not commented on the fact that his **cough snarf** 'little' brother is getting a new trailer. I think he is just waiting for his first air ride. OK so it is not really an air ride trailer - but it is gosh darn close - and Reef does not need to know that. Instead of green swishes it will have silver ones - because it will match the trucks.

I know - "you horse people are Nucking Futz!"

The Saga of the Stupid Previous Owner Continues..

we have been having problems with our brand new heating system and it turs out to be something that should have been picked up on at sales / installation / and any of the 7 services calls. A new breaker and another electric line had to be run.

There was an exisiting wire in the basement that has been just hanging down from the rafters. J and I thought that since it was run in conduit through the garage into the basement that maybe it could be used....

Turns out, unbeknownst to us, it was a live 220v...just hanging in the freaking basement. No electric caps, no junction box, no nothing - I mean just bloody hanging there begging to make contact with something to start a fire. We had surmized that the preivous owner had used it to run a hot tub...and we were right. However, we had no idea that it as live or even connecting in the breaker box. WTF?

And if you had seen this thing it looked lke someone has just taken a knife to it to sever the connection. Honestly, it looked like it was something someone had run and forgot about.

I can not wait to see what other F'ed up shit we have to find in this house. I am truely begining to believe if there is 7 ways to f something up - the previous owner found exponential ways to f things up. WHO LEAVES A 220V WIRE JUST HANGING THERE!!!

Another earworm for ya!

My name is Chilly Willy,
I'm frozen through and through.
My knees are cold, and my toes are too.
Ah, ee, achoo.
