Correct.

Between maps and Wordl, I may have to ban myself from Addiction.

We're still pretty sure that this place isn't the long term solution for us, but we circled back to a smaller refresh to make things a little more enjoyable while we're still here (which is why I was totally fine with saving myself some trouble with overlaid doors).



:lol: I hope to be done a little faster than that. I'm going to work in stages - hopefully I'll have the two upper cabinet walls done within a month or so. I'm done with the broad strokes of the design, currently laying everything out in SketchUp. I'm starting to go cross-eyed from staring intently at the screen all day. :twitchy:

You should do a beaded inset on the cabinet doors and drawers. Ask your wife about that, and see what she thinks. :rolleyes:

They were junk when they were new. This was in the '70s and I know most cars were junk but these were junk of several magnitude.

I had mine in the 70s. Beside stuff breaking, it was hard to get parts and when you did find them they were double what Chevy or Ford parts were. I sold it to a manager at an IH dealer and was happy to see it go.

Gotta admit though that a good meal and a good bottle of wine will bring you more luck than two rocks will.

Who knew the west coast states contained so much public land?

I only believe in bad luck.

Asbestos gone. Lots of rotten sheathing and we insulation and a mystery: Where’s the brick? This was a freaking brick house!

Weird that $100 apiece doesn't seem all that extravagant anymore. I was just reminiscing about peak brunch in Portland, OR earlier today, how much good cheap food there was. This one was pretty tasty, I had to order both of the specials:

I thought everybody knew. Maybe it's only everybody in the west.

True, I can remember when $100/couple was a very nice meal. Now when the two of us just go out to a neighborhood place and have a drink or two with dinner, the bill is about $100.

There are times when I enjoy a nice meal and am willing to pay for it. Christmas dinner fit that bill this year since we were not at home. My wife was surprised to see the $600+ charge on the account when we got home, but it was a really nice place, the food was very good, we had a nice bottle of wine, and I tipped about 30% since it was Christmas evening and the service was exceptional. I also reminded her that it would not be out of the norm to spend close to that on food and drink to have family over for a nice dinner at home.

Almost all land in Texas that is not park land is private.

The reporter asked one guy if he thought vaccinations worked and the guy said "no." Wearing masks? "No." Coffee enema? "Maybe." :lol:

Guy? I assumed you were talking to Janet Jackson

I have an elderly couple I care for. They adamantly refused to get the vaccine. Of course they both caught the virus last month, they went to see a quack “covid specialist” in NJ who took cash only and put them on a wacky regimen of vitamins etc.

I suggested they should get the vaccine in 1-3 months. They still refuse it.

Sigh.

I was testing out some twitter guy's first word experiment. He originally thought adieu would be great because it covered so many vowels, but said it actually sucked in his experience. So anyway I had to see for myself today, and yep, it's possibly THE worst first word.

Welp, the boy is back to distance learning for the rest of Jan, thanks to the latest COVID bloom.

I heard ROATE is a tested first word. Haven't tried it yet, nor have I tried the longer words.
