Taking a shower

At last! We can take a shower in Sousse. :-) Why did I put this off? It only took 15 minutes. No, I didn't hire a plumber. After four weeks trying to get our hot water heater fixed, easy jobs are mine.
 
Our first shower head in Sousse.
We had a hand held shower head to use in the bath, but it wasn't too hand for washing Sue's beautiful long hair. Now that we have hot water, I thought it best to drill some holes in the wall and mount a real shower head. This one cost about $7.50, with all the hardware. A pretty good buy really.

Wish we could have purchased one of those fancy Amazon Plumber Shop Showerheads, but really, who needs a water filter on their showerhead? I'd bump my head on that Aquasana filtered shower system. ;-D

I had trouble getting our new showerhead to point in the correct direction. It wanted to spray the wall. Kais, the hardware store owner, told me I would need to tighten the screw that holds the shower head in position. I did as good as I could with our Phillips head screwdriver, but I couldn't get it tight enough. :-(

Then I remembered that cool pocket screwdriver someone gave us in USA, before our departure overseas. I grabbed it out of my toolbox and gave it a twirl. Yes! It gave me the leverage to get another half a turn. :-)
 
I searched Amazon.com for this handy pocket screwdriver, but I couldn't find it. Let me know if you do!
