Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?

Let's see...

Burst pipe... water cascading down stairs into living room... drilled through phone/Internet cable... hot water heater died...

You get the idea.

Shabbat Shalom

Sounds like the perfect Photo Friday Entry! :)

That's gotta put damper on the Shabbat celebration ...

Posted by: Bob | Dec 29, 2006 5:10:35 PM

Oy gevalt!

Oy! Yours takes the cake over mine. Sorry to hear about it.

Shabbat Shalom.

That nokia phone couldn't take a pic????!!! :(

Good thing Mom & Dad are there to take your mind off your woes! ;)

You're not the first Israeli blogger who has had his pipes burst on erev Shabbat, it seems that today is a popular day for plumbing emergencies...

Posted by: Fern | Dec 29, 2006 8:19:03 PM

If I were you I'd be expecting frogs next.

Yep. Take some pics. We want to see the carnage.

Try to have a good Shabbat. What a horrible series of events!

Aw man, I've been there. Hope all gets quickly better. Try to have a good wknd and a Happy New Year celebration.

Check this out - open letter from Israel :

It's great.

Yikes! Sorry. Dry out soon.

Shabbat shalom.

Could be worse, though. Coulda been an upstairs toilet overflowing just before the start of the Seder...

Posted by: Elisson | Dec 30, 2006 3:47:51 AM

Oi, what great timing eh? (not that there's ever a good time for things like this to happen). Good luck with the repair job, hope you have some plumbers in the family...

He giveth, He taketh.

The crazy electricity jumps killed our main heater (air conditioner) on Wednesday, so we had to suffice with small blow heaters until the big one got fixed. Burst pipes into your house is worse though! Hope it gets fixed soon.

Posted by: westbankmama | Dec 30, 2006 6:58:47 PM

Oh, bad luck. Hope you all still managed to have a good Shabbos.

Posted by: Judy | Dec 30, 2006 7:40:27 PM

Love the title - hope it didn't spoil your Shabbat.

Do you still have some leftover "Wet Wipes" from Yonah's diaper days? With that name alone, they might've come in handy! Hope all smooths itself out real soon!

Posted by: Pearl | Dec 31, 2006 8:00:24 AM

Oh, ouch. I hope you managed to have a good Shabbat in spite of it all.

Jack... Into every life a little rain must fall. :-)

Essie... See, you timed your visit perfectly! :-)

Ed... If only I had a way to connect to the Internet and actually upload one!

Bob... Chez treppenwitz wasn't its usual spic & span self this week.

A simple Jew... My sentiments exactly.

orieyenta... See the big difference between you and me is that I would never try to fix this on my own. My first thought is to call the plumber. But unfortunately the flood began without warning while I was busy elsewhere getting a friend to help me drill through my telephone/Internet cable. Clear so far? :-)

matlabfreak... All's well that ends well. Shabbat was restful and full of good food and good company (the 'rents). Thanks.

Ezer Knegdo... Thanks. in the end we managed.

wrymouth... I wouldn't doubt it. :-)

Val... Empathy much?

Fern... It's Murphy's law (or whatever the Jewish equivalent is). It's just like nobody ever gets a flat tire in good weather or during the day.

Tracey... No frogs, but if this Sheetrock doesn't dry out properly we may have some nice mold! :-)

Jaime... Thanks. Much appreciated.

Doctor Bean... Already dry... Thanks.

Elisson... Not that you'd have any experience with such a hypothetical scenario, right. :-)

Chantyshira... I wish. As it is I'm paying for my plumber's kid's braces.

a. ... Very cute. I'll remember to be all sympathetic when you have home repair issues. :-)

westbankmama... I thought you settlers were a tough lot? ;-)

Judy... Thanks... yes we did.

gilly... It is one of my favorite expressions. Oh, and to avoid any Dov Bear-esque replay, I DID NOT MAKE UP THE TITLE... IT IS A PUBLIC DOMAIN EXPRESSION! ;-)

Pearl... Oy, I'd forgotten about your gems. :-)

Rahel... Yes, everything came off just fine. Thanks.
