Visitors and plumbing saga continues.

We have a full house this weekend. Two sets of visitors who are overlapping as well as a trip to NJ to the Rett Clinic. Our first visitor is Nikolai, a visitor from Germany, who is a distant cousin of Jeremy's. He's in the US for 5 weeks, spending most of the time in upstate with Kiki and Kappa - he's swinging by DC to do some sightseeing. We went to dinner and out to ice cream.

Gold's Gym was doing a class outside and Vince pretty much did 50% of the workout. Lots of lunges and pushups.

And look. We finally did it! We cut a hole in the ceiling to figure out the plumbing problem. We are such chickens, such lame DIYers. What can I say, it took us months to decide to cut a hole in the ceiling, it's a wonder I can even manage to decide what to have for lunch.

And what you all are waiting for - it's a complete mess. I don't know what that blue goop it, but there is a huge leak at the joint. We are trying to figure out the history of this, but I think we'll need to take out both more of the ceiling and get a plumber.

OMG! We've been dying for you to cut the hole in the ceiling. Finally.

You may apply some glue on the joint and see if it works. Since it is a drain pipe with no pressur.
