Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021
I was feeling virtuous having put in a load of laundry after reading Charmion's remarks (who correctly sussed the name of the FB Jail commenter) - and I walked into the bathroom and saw water in the tub. Damn. The roots have finally completely clogged the sewer line. I'm just back from picking up the electric snake thing with the tree root attachment. A quick lunch and check-in, then out to the yard to run this thing. And then to actually do something about the roots this time around. Lovely way to kill an afternoon, but the alternative is not flushing or using much water until I go get this machine tomorrow.

The stuff I have stacked up behind the SUV in order to get it out should do the trick - getting it back in will involve incremental lifts and then cardboard to slide it on sideways (they put it in wheels down so it tried to roll around as I drove home.) Or call the friend who took the heavy-duty fence posts off of my hands and suggest he could help me instead of paying for the posts. :)
