More updates: Today should be the last day of the electrical work. Devi has brought another guy with him today who looks as though if Dave Ziskind has a relative in the electrical trade this guy is it.
While lunching in the dining room/make-shift kitchen today we heard a knock on the front door. It was a large tatooed guy (with headscarf) out in the drive way asking if he could take the old freezer (noting his similarly tattooed friend already had it on its side about to go into a pickup truck). (Thank God!)
Other news? The washing machine drains through a small rubber hose that has been snaked underneath our pumpkin pine floor. Sure, that's up to code.
