HOPEFULLY THINGS ARE UP AND many many OF OUR TOWN PEOPLE AND BUSINESSES HAD water lines breaks that plumbers were so swamped it was a nightmare - they are still trying to get back to somewhat normal!!!RUNNING AGING!!!

Shower/jacuzzi,rainfall,waterfall,sauna tub... trading for needing a walk in one seat shower, new wood under my toilet & it seated plus a few other things...

 Here is the tub/jacuzzi/steam/radio/phone/two shower heads, rainfall /waterfall, foot massager that I have now. It is in perfect shape other than a couple of pieces that are more for "looks" and nothing to do with how it works. It works perfectly... a couple of the hand holders need changing out, just because they are looking dingy... and the little rails that are where the shampoo etc hold, also need to be replaced, they also look kind of dingy and the waterfall, has some peeling on it.. but really none of those are expensive...and you can order them online... this tub now goes for almost 4,000.00 but they have it on sale in some places for about 2,800.00. I bought mine and it was shipped from overseas crated up and it was in perfect shape, beautiful glass doors and all. That was about 2007 I believe when I ordered it and took 6 weeks or so for it to arrive.We put it together ourselves - they are relatively easy to put together. We had a separate electric connection for it, and it has it's own electric box and it's a 120 just wanted it to be separate from our other breakers. I think I paid about 2,000.00 for it or so back then. Here is a URL and a photo of it... and the ONLY reason I am going to have to get rid of it is that for 1 - now with me being alone, having both knees replaced, and that hip fracture repaired, i can't really climb over to get into it. It is not hard and it has a step up into it, but with my other chronic health issues, even the pacemaker, I can't use the sauna or the jacuzzi due to the heat and even on my pain pump, I am not supposed to sit in a whirlpool, jacuzzi bath etc. - Now that I have had the cervical neck surgeries (2 of them a couple of years ago) and now I face a Posterior Lumbar Fusion in April at L-5/S-1, that fusion is really going to make it almost impossible for me to be alone climbing into that tub... so I just need a walk in shower, with one set, and a nook for shampoo, shower gel etc... It would also give me a great deal more space in my bathroom, since we enlarged it when we added that tub... if I have just a smaller, walk in shower, be easier to keep clean and clean...& I won't have to worry so much about falling, trying to get over into a tub. If anyone knows about anyone that maybe interested in buying it from me, or maybe even doing some trading... I need my toilet with new lumber and it reseated, plus I need flooring in my bathroom, and my lights and fan are up but they are not hooked up in the electrical box in my attic... I also need a new light fixture (I already bought it) hung at my back steps, and really could use some kind o a rail on one side of my back step to hold onto , and even on the front step, it's only 2 steps but a rail on one side would be great. Plus I had replaced a ceiling fan (did it myself) but something happened to it about a year later. So, I have a brand new one sitting here in a box, to be hung, which I could do "maybe" if I had an 8 foot ladder. Mine is 6 foot and it's not tall enough, plus I really don't need to be putting my arms over my head anymore... or I would have had it and those light up in the back by the back steps... If anyone knows of someone like I said that may want to do some trading along with cash, and since I have most of the parts, mainly is labor... I've got some tree limbs that I began cutting down myself, but I can tell I really don't need to be doing that myself... it's putting a strain on my neck and shoulders arms... It irks me, I have all the tools, and the "knowledge" to do most of it and used to do most would do it myself, until my body decided to "fall apart"... anyone with questions etc jus message me and I will answer...

 Due to blizzard weather here in TX. My internet has been down or 10 days off and on so that is why I have not gotten out to everyone.... Also I am still like many BEEN OUT OF RUNNING WATER FOR OVER 14 DAYS DUE TO A BAD PIPE SPLIT BEHIND MY WASHER.  Can't get plumber here due to so many in my town also with the issues.... I hope to get things back up and going SOON! I have already has to postpone my (PLFS) Posterior Lumbar Fusion Surgery 3 tomes due to weather and now no running water.... So it seems when it SNOWS blizzards here in TX it POURS and knocks out!

Need Plumbing Work, Have a wonderful Sauna, Tub, Rainfall, and more shower/tub to trade/sell needing to get things done before lumbar fusion surgery and more...

 Not sure about many of you but I have been basically without internet since the blizzard... it has been up and down morning, noon, midnight, all the time.. you are up one moment & the next it is down... it sucks..especially when there are things you really need to get done, like paying bills etc... by the way, since, (Jim passed away and the internet business as I had not been reminded, did not get paid of course so that address and site is no longer exists... which means I no longer have my MAIN email address for bills, for important issues ad so forth. For those that email me, which most of you just message me from here or send me a message or post, just keep doing that... I am having to go in and change ALL of my bills, and so forth, doctors, etc to a new email address... which I thought about making another new domain nam name myself. I have 2, one I had for a long time, the other is named for my blog, book, newspaper etc... which is the

but I have to get with my domain provide to find out just how to set up an email address for that domain name... I hate to use that because it is so long, so I thought about buying a shorter domain and using an email from it. Right now, I have my very old yahoo and hotmail emails that I have kept up and they are still active. But, I have not used them so they are clean of spam etc... so I may use one of them for now. My gmail one is already full of junk... does not take long... I DID NOT of course have the surgery A WEEK AGO, ON THE 17TH, WHICH WAS WHEN WE HAD THE SEVERE BLIZZARD... so I am having again TO RESCHEDULE! I STILL DO NOT HAVE WATER! MY PLUMBER SEEMS TO BE EITHER SNOWED UNDER, OR I HAVE TO WONDER MAYBE HE JUST DOES NOT LIKE ME... I don't know but I am just about tired of it... this is now about 14 DAYS! WITHOUT RUNNING WATER, NO REAL SHOWER, USINF WATER LESS SHAMPOO, CANNOT WASH DISHES, SO USING PAPER ETC... CANNOT DO LAUNDRY... I think I may just have to try to get someone else out here if I don't get any results by tomorrow...I realize it is insane for ALL of the plumbers, but 14 days, is getting way too long... plus I NEED THIS TOLIET FIXED BEFORE I HAVE SURGERY... NO WAY with a lumbar fusion and back brace I can rely on this toilet with the boards almost rotten under it, PLUS IF I CAN GET SOMEONE TO COME OUT, THAT WANTS THIS HUGE TUB, WITH ALL OF THE sauna, two sprayers, rain shower, water flow, foot massager, the water jets and it will even let you hook your phone up to it and has a radio... the works... I cannot set down in it any longer, or several reasons, one I cannot get up if I did, two, with the heat I can't use the sauna or the jets, due to the pacemaker and the pain pump, so at 2,500.00 or more dollars I paid or it, it is fairly easy to take apart and put back together... and needs a couple of small pieces you can order, mainly "cosmetic nothing huge"... it stands on stainless steel legs... anyway, if I could get someone who wanted it, I would take a very small amount, to help cover the cost of I just need a "walk in shower" with one seat, and some place to hold shampoo conditioner etc.. I would settle for just one that accomodates a shower curtain rather than a glass door, as long as it does not leak in the floor... I would consider a 4th or less of what I paid for it, depending on how much a plain walk in shower with one seat, and shelves for shower items...nothing fancy just reliable and easy to maintain. So, if anyone wants to put this out about maybe even a plumber knowing someone who would want this sauna, shower, etc tub, and could do some trading, cash etc for putting in the shower.. or even doing the toilet, shower... etc... we could work out something... I am desperate..I will NOT be able to get in it after the surgery, I barely can now.
