You aren't even going to believe what I need to special order from somewhere. I mean this has nothing to do with Beefy but always when you post is somehow comes up. And no I'm not even kidding.

Nope.

Starts with an O and ends with ringS.

You see, it's like this:

I have a skimmer.

The skimmer I have is the same skimmer I had when "I have a skimmer" was a thing.

The O-rings on said skimmer I have that I had when "I have a skimmer" was a thing are the self same O-rings as when "I have a skimmer" was a thing.

When "I have a skimmer" was a thing you could buy the skimmer I have. But now, when "I have a skimmer" is not a thing, you cannot buy the skimmer I have. It is not a thing.

But, yet, I have it.

And so, even though "I have a skimmer" is not a thing, the skimmer I have is, and it needs new o-rings.

Without, it won't skim a thing.

But it isn't a thing. And so I need to special order the things for the thing that isn't a thing.

See? It all makes perfect sense.

Life hasn't been shy with giving me a heaping plateful.. But I was listing my remnants, reminiscing of the good ole days of OT shenanigans and surge-aided sleep, and had to pay cmas a visit.
Glad to hear from ya! Hope all is good in your hood!!

Perfect sense. And for some reason, this comment made me think of the plastic hose clamp thingies with interlocking teeth that you can tighten with pliers if you so choose.
