Howard says he has new toilet eyes. Ha, ha! You hear about toilet mouth but never toilet eyes.
What he means is, he has eyes for toilets.
For one thing he noticed the historic toilet in our downstairs bathroom. I have to confess I never looked at this toilet closely! But now I do. And I recognize its greatness.
That is it pictured above. Note how the tank is fastened to the wall. And how it is connected to the bowl by that antique pipe.
Then there is the classic line connecting the tank to the floor, complete with that valve. You may click on the picture and blow it up should you want to study the toilet more closely. Which, should you want to do that, I would understand.
We think our toilet dates to the 1920s. Possibly it is original to the house.
