Rained at the jobsite but not at my house, so I painted hardware today. Saves us time and ultimately money. https://media.giphy.com/media/l46CAP...jGgg/giphy.gif

Just how it has to be.
First you couldn't change coffee cups, and then you stick with the "I (am so glad that Apple finally allows me to do what Android has done for years) Phone"

I really think that life was trying to tell you something when your phone fell into your coffee cup.

Yeah, Life told me to go get a new damned iphone for a hunnerd and nine dollars and be happy.

And I can make a call from the house for the first time since I gave up my Motorola RAZR 20 some years ago.

The overall concept of the downspout is cool, but the execution here is just a really weird ass thing to have on your home.

I find the bent over painted silhouettes of people in yards odd as well.

"Everyone dies, but not everyone lives..." - William Wallace, Braveheart

Woman who died of cancer at 35 wrote about her life in her obituary: 'Damn it was good!'... https://www.foxnews.com/us/woman-die...er-35-obituary
From the article...
In her obituary published April 9, Matheson urged people to not "take the small stuff so seriously and live a little."

For her part, Matheson lived a fulfilling life, as she wrote in her obituary: "35 years may not seem long, but damn it was good!"

Yep. Just got attacked by one last week.
He and his mate have a nest not far from my favorite burrito place. Anybody gets within 50 ft of that nest gets attacked.

Well that was just absolutely amazing. They successfully returned all 3 1st stage boosters to earth, landing upright - 2 on land and the 3rd on -the rolling deck of a vessel at sea.

Man, these are great times we live in !
