Wow, I took the day off from the blog and I get here and find out that I can take lessons on plumbing. Thats really cool. I may have to watch the lesson a few times to make sure I have all the right tools. :)

heh heh heh

I've watched the video on how to field strip a Glock a few times just to make sure if I ever buy a Glock that I will know how to do it. :)

ROFL, you're a bad grrl!
That's okay, I like bad grrls!

Yeah, I think Pottery should do a dance vid to showcase his latest project. Maybe with Carnival dancers in the background!

Hey I'm thinking of putting my own dishwasher in. Saw you had some help videos on things like field stripping glocks. Couldn't find any plumbing vids in your blog so thought I'd be helpful and post the one I found. However, while you can post of vid of Pottery dancing Gangnam Style in my blog, please don't post one of anyone dressing for plumbing success ;)

Thinking about trying my hand at Chicken Fried Steak for lunch.
Never made it before.

Thank you Officer.
Keep up the good work.
And please turn off your radar gun.
I'm late, due to your Diligence, and will need to drive at speeds way over the Legal Limit to get this thing done. Stand back. The smell of burning rubber is probably as bad for you as the smell of popcorn butter.

ROFL!

The carrier of the list leaps from the back of the truck and unrolls his great scroll, just to be sure.

"What is this?" the policeman asks.

"That, my good man is THE LIST!" LPB replies in a tone that suggest that it was a stupid question and anyone with half a brain should have recognized it as such at once.

"Oh, I see!" the policeman remarked, shaking his head in awe of the massiveness of the document. "Well then," he said laying a hand on LPB's shoulder and giving him a look of sympathy and understanding. "Move along then."

Quoting pottery:
Greetings !

Another day of running up and down ladders, screwing things upside down. I don't know how long I can keep it up.....

Run with it!
I'm going to bed.......

:):))


Oh snap.

Sreeeech!!!

Klunk,klunk,klunk.


Tap, tap, tap.

Lord Plumb Bob rolls down window.
"Can I help you, officer?"

"Sir, we've had a report of a rather rum-soaked old gentleman driving around town pestering hardware store owners about a right-side-up screw gun. Would you know anything about that?"

LPB replies, "Did that sheep herder from Florida put you up to this?"

"Just answer my question, Sir."

"What was your question?"

"Step out of the truck please."

"That's not on my list."

"Just step out of the truck, Sir."

"OK, but that's not on my list."

Good Morning and Happy Friday!

Ski, you get brownie points for not taking the bait!
Looks like more rain here today. Gonna have to start boxing it up and sending it to someone who needs it!

Good plan !

Can I have it ?
It's been dry as the proverbial bone, with 95F most days.
Looking at the maps and stuff, no respite in store. HOT and hazy already.

Off to the city to hopefully complete the upside down thing.
Have fun !

Still storming here. Must be all that water that is missing from the northern cap? Most of the lightning is a bit south at the moment. Nice light and sound show on the deck.

Got about an hour in before a thunderstorm chased me indoors.

GardenGrrl started a new blog, for jokes, photoshopped pics, original art, stories, and the like. Might be fun.

To help get things rolling, I posted an except from a story I've been writing on and off whenever I get inspired for a year or two if you want to check it out.


I did.
Good job, cappymon.

Great news and a cool tune Goofy!

As for where did the water go?
It's up in the sky and heading this way...again!
Member Since: September 2, 2008 Posts: 102 Comments: 33606
Looks like YT and our DSL provider are back in tune after new modem, and a little more tweaking of circuit chips at the central office. Tis but a minor skirmish in the digital onslaught on the analog system.

Speaking of tunes, found this hanging around .... a little rhythm for watching grass grow under the yardarm or " Where did the water go?"

Oss and Shep,

Thanks for the great tunes.

Shep, can't wait for the day I can throw my clocks away.
(okay, might keep one strictly for navigational purposes)

RTLSNK, I guess that means you got a good night's sleep?

Well, not too awfully hot out and no rain yet. The grass is dry, so I probably ought to take the opportunity to get some mowing done this pm before it gets out of hand.

Hope you are all having a great Thursday!

All those things we've been told that go oops.

Haven't forgotten it.

A while later, I dreamed that the date and I had a daughter.
Ended up marrying her and number two daughter was born. I named her after another Stevie song. The marriage didn't work out after a while, but I was blessed with a beautiful child who would eventually grow into an amazing young woman. A carbon copy of me, but beautiful and female.

So...there you go. A little more insight into me.

Signing off for the night. Rest well folks!

(and thanks for the tunes Shep. Will listen to them all later!)


A wonderful thing.

I'm shuffling out the door myself.
Had a case of house cleaning OCDs today.

Last one tonight.

I remember, though I'm dating myself here, like it was yesterday, front row center seats (thanks Dad) at the Lakeland Civic center (Wild Heart Tour), with my Stevie lookalike girlfriend, mouthing the words to the intro of this one with Stevie looking me straight in the eyes. Then she smiled that smile at me...I think I melted.

But its a good tired is it not my good man?
One that comes from a sense of accomplishment.
Of facing the spears and arrows of life head on.
Of going where no lazy man would dare to go and so forth.
You can rest now knowing that the water is running,
the mosaic has been restored to its former glory,
and you have gained many atta boy points from the Lady Pott.

Such things are the stuff of legend my good man.

Well done, bravo, hear hear, and whatnot.

Good Evening !
Took the day off from son's project.
Woke up feeling 'blah', and thought that I would just do nothing for the whole day..

But then, I had to go out to get some adhesive for a damaged mosaic and fix that, then run the water supply and waste lines to the Lady Potts Studio sink (it has been pending...), then fill the cistern and try the thing out.

It works just fine.
But now, I'm tired again.
And not quite as 'blah'.
