Well, here is the new section of pipe. It was an extremely stressful day for us. The smell of the blow torch was stinking up the house something awful. Then about ten minutes after Eddie left when he was done, the bedroom started filling up with smoke and Mom was freaking big time! Eddie was doing something down in the garage with the pipes that set off the smoke. He kept reassuring us everything was okay. So we had fans in the windows blowing the smoke outside.
Minchie was so freaked out that he found safety under the dining room table. Notice that Laila is nowhere to be found in any of these pictures. She sought refuge under her couch the whole time. Mom wanted to crawl under there with her.
They say when there is smoke or fire, to stay close to the ground. Minchie found a great place to wait out the smoke going away.
So, until Eddie comes back next week on Thursday to repair our bedroom wall, Mom taped up all the holes. In a few days we'll be turning our a/c back on and she didn't want our cool air to escape.
