My Next Tool

1 comment:
Wrestling around sheet goods is a real pain. With my bad back, that's a literal statement. A sheet of 1/4" plywood is no big deal. Even 1/2" is fine. But if I need to move around a sheet of 3/4" plywood or, even worse, a sheet of 3/4" MDF, it becomes a real trial.

Big Government

No comments:
While making my rounds for Friday's Feast I visited Jo's Cafe and found the following. I was so impressed I had to post it too.

A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have. " - President Gerald Ford, Presidential address to a joint session of Congress (12 August 1974)

Name a great website you would recommend to others.

Santa's Community Blog where it is always Christmas. Well, I'm a bit biased since I'm a co-author as well. Doesn't everyone love Santa? I know I do.

Thursday Thirteen

No comments:
The Thursday 13 is a weekly meme with a simple theme: each Thursday you blog a list of 13 things. What kind of things? Any kind! Just come up with a list theme and run with it. One week you may list “13 things on my mind” and maybe the next week you’d list “my top 13 favorite movies”.  Back in early 2007, Janet came up with the idea of going through the alphabet;  “13 Things I Love that begin with the letter A”, etc.  That gives you 26 weeks of ideas! Each new 13 will be posted at approximately 8PM EST every Wednesday evening.

Public Service Announcement

No comments:
Dear Dogs and Cats,

The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

9 Things I Hate!

No comments:
People who point at their wrist while asking for the time... I know where my watch is pal, where the hell is yours? Do I point at my crotch when I ask where the toilet is?

People who are willing to get off their ass to search the entire room for the T.V.. remote because they refuse to walk to the T.V. and change the channel manually.

Great Dane. I don't want to be a yapper dog. Sometime big and impressive works for me.

Math 1957-2007

No comments:
Last week I purchased a burger at Burger King for $1.58. The counter girl took my $2 and I was digging for my change when I pulled 8 cents from my pocket and gave it to her. She stood there, holding the nickel and three pennies, while looking at the screen on her register.

Florida Highway Patrol

No comments:
A Florida senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette Convertible out of the dealership. Taking off down the road, he pushed it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left. 'Amazing,' he thought as he flew down I-75, pushing the pedal even more.

Bubba went to a psychiatrist. "I've got problems. Every time I go to bed I think there's somebody under it. I'm scared. I think I'm going crazy."

"Just put yourself in my hands for one year," said the shrink. "Come talk to me three times a week, and we should be able to get rid of those fears."
