Rulez must be followed....

I'll get the address for shipment of the key from Andy, that way he doesn't think I'm hitting on his sweetie.

I love hiking! Don't get to do enough of it where the weather is a little wet and cold right now, but I'm looking forward to it getting warmer.

I agree hiking is fun! I know it's definitely way too cold and wet here in Michigan! As matter of fact my kids school just closed as they were getting ready to pull out! So I guess I should go here. I love the fact my mom's a bus driver and she calls me before school actually put it out for everyone! I dont like the school doesn't actually call until my kids are leaving or have left!

Re: Things You Love & Hate


Ordered propane for the shop and got the slip from the driver. Looked at it and the price was $3.06/gal and a bill near $800

The driver came back in and said he made a mistake and the propane was only $2.25/gal for me, $585.00. Much nicer, gotta love that.

Re: Things You Love & Hate


Hate that I spent all kinds of time staining a bunch of cherry drawer fronts, panels and a large cabinet only to find out when I put the stain on the yellow dye in it was to pronounced making the stain look lighter than it was suppose to be.

Love that I was honest about it, asked the client to come in and look at it because I told him it was lighter than it should be and he fell in love with the color over what he had picked.

my wife, but HATE the way she slices bread.

drove me nuts when employee couldn't make a straight cut on pipe and i hate straightening loaf of bread after she's done carving on it.

one side of your bread slice, one half inch, other side to square back up... at least inch and a half.
