Cool mornings and hot coffee.
Any morning that I see deer or a rainbow is always a good start to a day

I received a tip once. It was pretty nice. The people had their kitchen redone a couple years before and the previous contractor installed a DW that leaked. The home was a manufactured so it had that particle board BS for floor sheeting. Anyway, we had to remove the lower cabinets and and make the dry rot repair, re sheet, and put everything back. The scariest part was removing and reinstalling the corian countertop without breaking it.

Long story long, we saved them over $5k according to their insurance guy. Best part is that they were able to afford the surgery that their young dog needed badly. That made me feel pretty damn good. They gave my brother and I $200 each they were so happy. Knowing that it helped keep that dog going was the best part though.

One thing that I love (at work) when you grab a handful of nails or screws and your random
Handful was exactly how much you needed.

The biggest reason that growing up sucks is because we have to pay for all the dumb stuff we did as kids....some of us more so than others
