Rat Bait Station
I loaded up the rat bait station first off. I liked the channel locks to crush up the little balls so they don’t pack them off, cleaning the station out. I’d rather they eat the stuff instead of packing it away somewhere.
I’m working on replacing two toilets and two sink faucets in our rental unit. I was going to get the faucet replaced and put in a new toilet today,……………… But.
The faucet proved to be much harder than I thought it was going to be to get the old one out. There were six big nuts under the thing and I could only get one arm in there at a time to work the wrenches and I didn’t know what size the nuts where so I had a hard time fitting the wrenches as I couldn’t see much either. And to top that off, the threads were corroded so things were hard to get off..
I pretty much wore myself out getting the old faucet off and my body was doing some screaming from the cramped position I was in doing it.
I decided not to replace the toilet today as one should be fresh to tackle such things.
I picked up my tools and cleaned up a bit and went on home for a rest.
Good thing I quit when I did as my back is screaming at me tonight, much worse than it did today.

I needed to arrange for the two guys I’m helping with spring tapping, lined up for tomorrow so they could come out and dig some blue clay up.
