When people write that they need advise when what they need is advice. Also, people who don't know the difference between your and you're.

Ah, you should meet fellow CT member "M1911". Much in common.

Remember, were all Americans here - Engrish is not our strong sweet.

Better to be safe than sorry I guess.

I worked yesterday getting some things battened down at a few customers homes at the beach...cleaned out my own gutters (the new pressure-washing gun works great)...installed some downspout extenders, etc, etc.

had a little wind...a little rain and today it's just a beautiful day outside.

If I hadn't been prepared.......

Re: Things I Hate


I did a gutter job yesterday morning with my brother for same reason. Homeowner was afraid of water in basement.

We took Friday off to make it a 4 day weekend and ended up going in on a Saturday which is very rare to begin with. It's all good made some nice money at least

That's why we carry spare tires - so that we never have a flat.

I carry a spare tire because I eat too much.

Wondering where that little plume of smoke is coming from, and it turns out to be my thumb.

Just fried and charred. Only the end of it. Lucky for me I have another one.
