~~Magpie#27~~~Knock Three Times On Da Pipes For Da Plumba

like a pipe-line to the heart
direct route don't stop
as multi-directional you may be
there aint nothin a pipe aint seen
so says the plumber that live next door
Three knocks on the pipe away!


And from the anoles of history; a mighty fine plumbing dictionary which proves to make an excellent summer plum of a plumb dang good love story without having to say I'm sorry I flushed the toidy when you were toying with the Back flow preventer. Thanks to Willow an excellent lesson, I'm all filled up in my blowbag so I'll shutup now. Love each week's Magpie-ing which never crimps my style or solders me silly whilst I melt my leaded ballcock with my Anode Rod! This sounds Freudian! Well at least I know I truly am of service and will have a lot a work ahead of me! A tenth career!
