Riddle me this...



We have had a leak in our bedroom for many moons now. I suppose this sort of mishaps are to be expected with an old house and all of it's "charm." The leak has grown worse over this summer to the point that one rainstorm kept me up at night to the sound of water dripping from the ceiling. Brian has been in the attic on numerous occasions. It's bone-dry, even during a storm. We brought a professional "Handyman" in, which wasn't so handy, because he couldn't figure it out. His solution was for us to spray a hose on the roof until we found the source. We did so this hot-hot Sunday. No leakage. No dripping. Not even moist. It's supposed to rain the next three days - who wants to bet the drip comes back?

Are there any sections of the roof that join two angles together? Where our garage meets the laundry room is a problem spot. The water has been known to trickle all the way to the kitchen ceiling.
Can you believe possible frost this weekend? Our flowers are looking great at the moment.

Following last nights downpour, I am proud to say we finally found water in the attic! It is coming from the roof. How exactly it's entering is our next challenge.

It was right there, hiding in front of us the entire time.

I had to sign on using dad's email It won't take my old password, but this works at least. I've tried numerous times with no luck to sign on.

So glad you found the leak at last. Let us know if you need some help with anything.

How did Mags do at school? Was she of course the "star"?

Angie dear, I make applesauce all the time. If you ever want to make up a big batch to can, I'd be happy to help you out! I also bought one of those apple peeler/corers and they are terrific.

considering DWTS, I hope they vote Mr Las Vegas off tonight. I don't think I could stand to watch him try to dance again. Marie has been fantastic and I really like Sabrina, Jennie Garth and some others. Helio has been fun to watch even though he's "just a race car driver".

Let me know if you need any HUGE mum plants. I can check on whether she's sold out yet.
