Keep your priorities straight, friend.

Oh, the old "two's too many and a thousand's not enough" predicament. I know that one.

Re: Things I Love


Working with and observing expert tradesmen. I had a few days open in my schedule and filled them by doing work for a friend on a retail store remodel. A very productive job site, with drywall hangers, electricians, finish carpentry all working - really solid guys, doing outstanding work. Just the right mix of quiet efficiency and general BSing. Very pleasant. Completely stress-free, too, because it's not my site. Good for a few days, anyway.

Re: Things I Love


When I can't find what I want in stock in the local stores, I can almost always order it on-line from Aubuchon Hardware and have it delivered to a local store at no cost and a fair price. $26 a gal for Gardz vs $43 for Lowes to do it...

That my knee's feeling better after being messed up for a few weeks, and I can get off my butt and off this keyboard, and get some real work done.
