Time to read up on pipe fitting and plumbing jargon then.  At least it somewhat limits the time period.  

You know, the Romans had plumbing. And bunches of invasions. Just sayin'.Evil Smile

Actually, the basis of the word "plumber" is latin - relating to someone who works with lead. Going back to Roman times...

Agree with BeckyRCollins. It's better when things don't fit together well. Harder to put together something different, but I'll manage. Best of luck

Same! Nerve-wracking to have you as my heatmate again...but good luck! Can't wait to read what you come up with.

I intend to write that scene from Battleship Potemkin, but - and here's the twist - in reverse!

Hi there former (and current) heatmate!

Congratulations on your 1st place finish last round! Nerve-wracking to have YOU as my heatmate! Best of luck! I hope we both do well!
