Yesterdays project was to assemble a new BBQ we had bought. The packaging said it was a 1 hour project but after 2.5 hours I went to the neighbors to get him to give me a hand. Besides the working with black on black I was having problems finding the parts. They manufacturers had little boxes packed away with labeled parts. The neighbor even had a time finding the parts. :) By the time it was assembled the Queen had already made the evening meal. Oh well it's ready to go for the next day she's off. With my afternoon tied up with the BBQ I didn't get Abbey out. It's funny how I can successfully work on a clock movement but a big item like a BBQ beats me.

Good Morning Plap ~

I've been exceedingly busy lately dealing with an on-going family crisis, so I haven't been able to get onto Wunderground much to post.

Nevertheless, I'm glad you continue to be doing reasonably well and proactive on a daily basis. My hubby can relate to your BBQ episode the other day. A couple years ago, he thought he could still assemble a newly purchased gas grill from our local retailer. The retailer said it would assemble it for free but would take just three days longer before he could pick it up. Since he's impatient by nature and wanted to test his skills, he decided to bring it home the same day of purchase. Naturally, after several hours of frustrated failure, he called upon his younger nephew for assistance. His nephew couldn't figure it out either, so his nephew went off in his truck and returned after purchasing a larger, already assembled, upgraded version of a different brand, then took the less expensive unassembled one to his brother who also needed one. After all was said and done, it took both of his healthy nephews and their father, who's hubby's older brother, over five hours to collectively assemble the one hubby purchased. Live and learn, I guess, but it paid off nicely for hubby to be a tad impatient. LOL!

Hope you and yours are doing well and enjoy many hours of pleasure from your newly assembled BBQ in the months ahead! Hubby and I can't wait to begin the grilling season ourselves! YUM!

From experience with assembling the buggers the instructions are vague and the illustrations are not clear. Is that a 1 1/2" screw that attaches the handle, or the 1 3/4"?

You didn't say if it was charcoal or gas! That's important! Charcoal for best flavor, gas for speed and cooking large amounts!

Good luck on whatever you decide to cook!

Tony, someday I might tell you the story of the bookcase I bought from Ikea. It came with instructions, apparently translated from the Chinese. After two and a half days, I finally got the thing together. You did well!
