Well, the joys of home ownership abound. I am happy to say I personally stimulated the local economy today by replacing the water heater in my home! Last night I found no hot water when I wanted to wash dishes. When I checked the water heater, I found a leak and knew I was in trouble. I left a message for the repair company and at 7am this morning they called me back. John, the service guy, got here at about 8:30 a.m. and by 11:30 a.m. I had a brand new functional water heater. It does NOT look like this redneck version.
