    Covered Bridge Festival isn't far from there, I can ask around at that time 3rd week of October.  Other than that, I hope local shooters will chime in, Evansville crew?  

    Would it help if I said she is single??:wub:

    Years ago I was putting an attic stair to the space over the garage. Neighbor wanders over to see what all the ruckus was about (cutting off bottom of the stairs at the time)

    "How many times you gonna measure that?" he asks

    "measure twice, cut once"

     

     

     

     

    A few minutes later, neighbor wanders back over when the racket continues. (Using an angle grinder to shave just a tad off the end, too short to hacksaw LOL)

     

    "What happened to measure twice cut once?" He had to say it.

     

    Stay tunned!!!

    We are recieving some stair runners from a demo in the area...and our next big project will be putting stairs up a long wall to get to loft, instead of the attic stairs we have used for 59 years!!!

    What could go wrong???:rolleyes:

    That is funny!!!

    You know, the cabinets are not square, and the cement floor is not 100% level...

    I mean, c'mon...daddy would buy steaks and beer...and his crew would come up an work on building the cabin for the gratuity of it!!!

    You know how well hangover jobs do!!!

    I hate to mention it but fridges have screwed on feet to level them. Couldn’t you have just removed those? If the floor is fairly level the adjustment feet may not be needed. 

    Nope...these were flat down already!!!

  6. So...today, we left the lake to travel to Farmington for a lovely lady's service...a wonderful woman she was.

    And, we were driving by a Lowes on the way back...so

     

    "Honey, want to look for a fridge for the cabin while we're here?"

    Well...he should've known!!!

     

    He had taken measurements last night. We stopped in, and found 3 we liked, the both of us, so we chose one...and they had it, so we bought it.

    It was ice maker optional, so we said we would take an ice machine too.

     

    Got to the cabin, friends met us there to help unload...

     

    The box they gave us was a repair kit for an ice maker!!!

     

    While Shanley, quite calmy, explained what and "now what", Dan is peeling off the 100 pieces of tape they use to protect these.

    So...we now have to take a small detour on the way home and pick up/exchange the FUBAR.

    And now that we have all the tape, and all the mess cleared, the boys went to put the fridge in the slot and...

    3/8 of an inch TOO TALL!

     

    HMMMM.....

     

    Shanley comes back with a sawzall from the garage. And they take off all they could...and yet, STILL TOO TALL!

    They end up removing my bottom shelf in that area.

     

    (Oh, and cut my phone line in half in the process)

     

    After all was said and done...my new fridge is in, awaiting the ice maker install on the next trip.

     

    I need to start a Youtube channel called "hey honey, do you think..." !!!

    I'd make millions!!!

    Finally got back to my happy place yesterday!!  I haven’t spent more than ten minutes in my toy box/shop in over six months, (closer to eight)!!

     

    Went out yesterday and spent more than an hour!  Planning on a couple hours tomorrow.  I need to shuffle a bunch of things around and I have some sound equipment from the band to check out and put away.  I really don’t have much stamina or real strength right now, so I’m working my way back carefully.

    I’m not going to be in shape to make Comin’AtCha’ this year!  I just got the busted up foot healed up enough to actually walk around in shoes for the first time in over a year!  I’m still waiting on test results that may answer why I’m having so much trouble staying healed up and healthy.

    You will be sorely missed!!!

    But you heal up well. Win that race!!!

    Please tell us this isn’t during your “fun time”…

    Nothing is more aggravating on a trip then to have mechanical troubles in the road. Well, there are worse things, but mechanical trouble is high in the list. 

    No...it is pre-fun time!!!

    We have been blessed that things seem to happen on the way home. And SASS family has always pitched in to help when needed!!!

    Trying to make sure we have no issues going or coming home:wub:
