Started with plugged plumbing & Recipes

Dave took Thursday off and this is what he ended up doing instead of what he took the day off from work to do.

Broken pipe here and came apart above this on the old paper pipe.

Old paper pipe from the 1940's that's flattened instead of round. But is under the concrete slab of the back porch and we are hoping to reroute form kitchen before the ground freezes.

Done with clean out, this is just temporary until we can redo it all.
