Busy day here yesterday at the ranch, as we emptied and discarded these babies for an Eternal GU 195S on demand hybrid gas fired water heater. In effect, we are going tankless. Woo hoo! These two hot water heaters are 12 years old, about the age when they start to break down. One broke on Christmas Eve, but it was no big deal because our hot water heaters sit in pans that have drains attached — water bugs notified us of the leak while we were at church. We turned off the broken unit and used the other one — the joy of being empty nesters! A few weeks ago, I heard rumblings in hot water heater II — it was loud and bouncy, as if pebbles were popping inside. Was someone having a party in there?
This post is for our friend ML, who wrote asking why in the bezonkers you cannot find a decent, clean-lined home in Dallas around $500,000 that doesn’t send you to the vomitorium with a stomach full of turrets, medallions and hand-troweled Old Worldliness. Yeah, remember they also had syphilis is the Old World!
