Turkey breast $15, potatoes from the CSA — cheap, emergency bill for the plumber who works on Thanksgiving Day to clean the dirt and peels out of the clogged sink drain — priceless.

Over the years, we’ve survived family holidays where someone forgot to turn the oven on, the refrigerator blew and other minor but funny disasters.

Today, a big thanks goes out to Roto-Rooter’s Erie office. A frantic call from us at about 4 p.m., and a plumber showed up lickety-split to save Thanksgiving Day.

What we learned: If you have a garbage disposal, it’s not for all garbage — no noodles, rice, apple or potato peels — and lots more. Little did we know, but we do now. Click here for some tips from Roto-Rooter on how to prevent clogs.
