Why girls can't play football

1- Guys loose their concentration.
2- Everyone wants to be Quarterback.

You're welcome.

Now to drown the thought of a $15,000 ford tractor, and my melted card....

Everyone has them...
Did you hear about Thurston Kerry III getting all weewee'd-up about the Israeli Defense Minister telling the truth?

Been busy-

Having two places 90 minutes from each other takes things out of you.

On the other hand, we got the new gate finished- the first thing we've done that didn't *need* to be done.
Plus, having the boss let me use the drill rig over the week-end saved about $1000.

Now some random pics from wherever I found them:

How can someone- in this day and age...

live without running water?

When we bought the place I didn't notice the Knob and tube wiring that would have saved me at least $4,000 off the price, but the tweeker living there had the water shut off.

He had the main water line cut under the main valve and a hose 90'd off (direct to the male theraded 90- no valve there, either0.
We I get that fixed and turn pon the water to see almost every pipe leaking.....

Crap! That's another $6,000 I could have saved.

I found the guy didn't know what a wrench was- or how to use it to tighten pipes.
I 'm in the process of replacing the floor the throne sat on and the wall I had to tear out for the tub valves.
I guess I'll add a shower head, since I have to redo the entire wall.

The lavatroty sink is gone, but the faucet is still there.
The kitchen sink is gone and so is the faucet.

I was thinking of saving it and making it a guest house/ hobby room, because it is Texas history, but now I think I'll take it apart and see what's usable later.

Before I even read this article...

I'm going to call Democrat staffers.'s "our money paying for it, why not let us have it"?

Besides, it goes with the territory....
If you feel entitled to grab anything you want, why be bothered with secret documents?

Right Sandy Burgler?

190V phase to neutral.

The service drop is only about 30 feet.

Now we wonder- did they tap it at that, or is the transformer going?

Bonus question:
With the hot knob & tube and 190V in the walls, why didn't it burn down already?

The joys of home ownership- doubled

I could have saved $3000 on the land if I'd only looked up when we had our inspection walkaround.

That's how much I know my company would have charged to rewire the treehouse....
Does anyone know what that is?

Yeah, it's been illegal for at least 30 years, and I thought it stopped in the `40's.

AND it's still hooked up...
EDIT to add-
The only thing that has power now is the well.
....And I"ll have to shut that off so I can fix the supply problem the tweeker caused by cutting the pipe BELOW the shut-off valve....
(note to self)- bring air compressor tomorrow to re-pressure the tank........
