Maybe it's my age but I never feel like banging nails. Especially on a Saturday night.

I don't. Brutus said that was a weird name for a lady and I put long fingernails on women in my search engine. Lots came up, I picked a better looking woman to post here.

I used a 2x6 to pop out a dent on my truck over the summer. cut it long, stuck it between the fender and the chassis and smacked it straight with a hammer to push out the dent. worked great.

Not anymore, but in the old days I haven't met a framing crew that didn't party or drink and doing all that the work was superb and they would do circles around anybody.
Unfortunately most of this guys went to work for big framing outfits when the industry started to change, so they all went for a steady paycheck working on track home developments as crew Forman's or Union supervisors. But always nice to run in to a few of them and remember the good old days.

Yep, back in the day you were judged by rather or not you could work high or not. If you couldn't you were gone. Got to love the 80's.
