Were is the GoPro camera
when you need it? I swear I could be a YouTube millionaire if I had video of all the ridiculously stupid things I have done while doing boat projects! Today had a little different twist though.
We have recently changed the cats to ceramic litter pellets. The new litter pan is designed to have the urine run through into the drain below and the poop is scooped and disposed of in the toilet then the pellets are rinsed off once a day. Well when I scooped today's deposits I didn't realize some of the pellets were stuck to the underside, until I heard them clanking around in the bowels of my new electric head
I can't leave the pellets inside and I am pretty sure the pellets made it through the first joker valve but think they are trapped in the tube before the second joker valve at the waste tubing that goes to the holding tank
. So I start dismantling the head
. I do in fact find two pellets there and am really proud of myself.
I show hubby what I have accomplished and he too is very proud of me (probably relieved he didn't have to do it. As I start to put everything back together, my husband points to the joker valve on the waste tube and suggests (since I had everything apart) I should pull it out and inspect it. OK.
I can't decide if what happens next qualifies as a Kodak Moment or a Master Card Priceless Moment ... However, the picture is definitely 'worth a thousand words'.
I was sitting on Homer (my new bucket) in the shower
stall when I pulled this bonehead move. Hubby was shocked, appalled and pretty much speechless -- well except for "oh, oh, ohhhhh!" Six to seven feet of waste tubing can hold a lot of disgusting stuff. Add some gravity and let the fun begin! I also found another five pellets in the aftermath!
