I think there's a reset button on the disposal, but I don't know if that will work, and I'm not sure if I'll be able to do anything at all about the drain. I might get a mechanically inclined nephew to look at it. If he can't do anything then I'll have to call a plumber. I like plumbers, but I hate giving them money. Especially when It's going to be a squeeze to pay the rest of the property taxes that are soon due, and I still have to do something about the washing machine. The drain must take precedence, though. I can do laundry at the laundromat, but I can't take my dishwater anywhere else to dump it.
2016 has not been a good year. It owes me, big time, but I have no idea how to make it pay.
