I spent another day in contractor hell fighting with a plumber whose workers only complete about 95% of the job. I have had to learn how to install baseboard molding complete with a back cut made with a coping saw. The guy installed ceramic tile but left a few gaps that were too big to be hidden by the molding. I had to learn how to cut tile and install it with fast setting thin set mortar. I had to learn that working with the fast setting mortar is like working with Bondo. It gives you a few minutes then BOOM! it hardens like a rock.
I can relate to some of the old guys on the Dodgers. I need a day of rest after a night game. But that is not going to happen. I am going to have to haul my aching back and legs out of bed and do it all over again today. I can relate to Mattingly who can not abide a player who does not put in 100% effort.
- Hook up pipes from sink to drain
- Finish installing molding
- Paint bathroom
Let me know how the Dodgers are doing. I have been too busy to keep track lately.
This Day in Dodgers History
August 25, 1979 – In a Hollywood Stars vs. the Media game played at Dodger Stadium, Robin Williams, the star of the hit television show, Mork and Mindy, in which he plays an alien, runs the bases backwards.
