    Monday -
    Wife: I’ve been cleaning out my closet and going to donate some clothing.

    Husband: Why not just throw them away, it’s easier?

    Wife: Because there are a lot of needy and starving people people who could use my clothing.

    Husband: Honey, anyone who could wear your clothing isn’t starving.

    Wednesday -
    Update: Husband is recovering nicely at the hospital.

    Sometimes it is a bad thing to have a lgs that I pass on the way home, especially on payday. Today when I stopped in there was something that caught my eye so I went over for a closer look. It is a Dan Wesson in 38 super. It is a fine looking little thing, to bad it is so expensive.

    So what did you pay for it? ;)

    Just because I haven't scandalized this place recently, I'll share that I changed my navel jewelry today. I *hate* changing my navel jewelry because the stupid little ball always wants to cross thread - but I got a new pair of round nose pliers that does seem to make the job tolerable. I have a new one that a dance sister gave to me because she developed a nickel allergy and can't wear them anymore. Dangley thing with lots of bling!
    Would anyone like to see a picture? :D:D:D

    Today Clean said my working truck is too dirty for her to ride in-----so I washed the right side.
    She thought it was nice.

    She hasn't seen the other side yet.  :#

    This house never had one so we had to give up a cabinet. Tried to get it out in one piece.... Ended up in a 5 gallon bucket

    First, the tenant's refrigerator took a dump - which I've been expecting for the last year. No sooner did the replacement get installed, then the A/C went out. Fortunately, just a bad thermostat which in turn took out the capacitor. Now I'm waiting for the 3rd disaster - that unit is the gift that just keeps on giving!

    I don't see how that could happen.  Is that what the AC tech told you?

    Yes. He claimed it was because the T-stat was short cycling the compressor - several kazillion startups and startup attempts...

    Maybe.....  although it would have to have been an intermittent loose connection in the thermostat or a software issue if it was an electronic thermostat.  Not something I have seen before in almost 30 years in the industry, but I guess not impossible.  More likely it was just the capacitor, they tend to be the weakest link.

    Yea, more than likely. Caps go out on a regular basis here in Florida - but the T-stat (one of those programmable ones) was all lit up and doing strange and wonderful things. Most likely co-incidence.

    Working on the 1918 piano, first time I've done anything to it in several years. Re-setting the key dip, which is done with paper shims. I'm not going to have enough shims, I've chewed through 100 in the first 1-2/3rds octaves - and that's natural octaves at that, not chromatic. I only have about 300 or so more, I'm gonna run out!
    I first did this job in about 2005, and as it was one of the very first things I did to this instrument, I did it incorrectly and set it too deep. My tuner in California didn't catch it, but the guy here in Florida did. "Hey dummkopf..." He even gave me a gauge - mine was the incorrect size.
    Since I'm going to run out of shims anyway, I hope I do before I get to the sharps. Those are going to be a PITA, and I'd rather do them after a break...

    Not even a nibble.  I think the bait scared the fish off.  :D

    I honked the horn, honest!  Motorcycle horns are not that loud.  I have been telling my wife I intend to install an air horn on it.....as soon as I figure out how to install it so it is pointed away and I don't deafen myself.

    It was bait....but honestly it was bigger than the shrimp we had for dinner later.  :D

    Guessing Key West. I was stationed at the Navy base for a few months there in '72 for submarine sonar school. Got my left eardrum blown out in training in a hyperbaric chamber and that ended school for me. Went to the fleet a few months later. And was in the Med just in time for the Yom Kippur war. I went back to Key West in the '90s after the base was replaced with hotels. Nothing was as I remembered it. Hated it and left the day I got there. The fishing off the Enlisted Men's Beach was primo back in the '70s.
