PRAISING YOU TUB AND ALL THE WONDERFUL PEOPLE WHO POST HOW TO VIDEOS! The solution to my problem has been right in front of me this whole time. Almost every part I bought came with two sizes of washers. One that fit and one that didn't. The one that didn't fit the 1 1/2 pipe fits the 1 1/4 pipe. It's called a 'reducer washer'. It's meant to go between both sizes. I will still end up with a possible clogging point. Because no one makes a 45 degree angle 1 1/4 under sink drain pipe. The connection between the 1 1/2 45 degree pipe and a 1 1/4 pipe will be that spot. But it will still be better than what I had. Yes they make those bendy pipes. I need something that will be in a horizontal position.

Firelight, chicken hearts taste way to much like liver. Try chicken gizzards. They've got a good flavor.

I think I'm actually starting to like diet soda.

Our brains take shortcuts. We don't actually see everything around us. Every play one of those "Find the differences" games with a simple picture? That's why you cant see all the differences at once.

This simple plumbing project has become a nightmare. Searched for hours on line. I have even been to a manufacturer's web site. Driven for miles. No one makes the part I need. Good o'l 1950's plumbing. If I reuse all the stuff my father-in-law put in I'll have the same problems. If I use the stuff I bought and go from 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 back down to 1 1/4 I'll have a potential clogging area at the reduction point. Yes there are rubber couplings with hose clamps at each end. However there is a difference in internal diameters between what's meant for thin and thick walled PVC pipe. Case in point. I bought a rubber coupling for 1 1/4 to 1 1/4. It's actual inside diameter is 1 5/8. That's 3/8's of an inch wider than the outside diameter of the 1 1/4 inch pipes. The problem is now do I continue with this search. Save myself a vacation day and a $$$ plumber call. Or do I take a V day and pay someone who hopefully will have a part that works. So I don't have to take a second V day and end up with a larger bill. Ya! 1950's plumbing.

And I've learned what paint colors were used by some of my favorite 1800's painters. Knowing this I'm able to both see and mix the colors used in paintings by Albert Bierstadt ,Thomas Cole and many others. I'll end up using modern day equivalents. Not quite the same colors. I can get the exact colors. Not really worth the $80+ a tube filled with toxins strong enough to kill me. In art the exact color is irrelevant. Value, or how light or dark a color is, is what makes art work. And another important trick of visual art. A blue gray by itself looks gray. Put it in the right spot on a painting and it will look blue.

A new pair of sandals and a set of fly traps. Weather is warming up out here and the flies are already becoming a pain.
Also bought a couple more USB solar chargers from Harbor Freight so i can speed up charging my battery banks.

Every time I go to Walmart and browse the aisles, all I ever see is merchandise that is misplaced and not put back where it belongs. :(  It's either because customers are too damn lazy to put stuff back where it belongs and/or the store workers are too lazy to straighten up and organize the aisles.  >:(

Most likely not much. Going to be cold and windy this weekend, so probably not go anywhere and just stay home. Work on model kits or watch movies.

Currently fixing a package of what's called Chicken Tortilla soup mix. But I'll be adding "extras" to it like diced tomatoes, diced red and green peppers, onions, and celery.
