Re: Random Thoughts Again

that's incredible. Having a roll of felt fall on you - man! The 4/12 roofs here are easy to climb around on. I think you could almost jump off with little consequence. I don't think I would shingle a two or three story house. I would work as a helper laying shingle maybe. When I was 13 until I moved...

Re: These are a few more of my favorite peeves

we are actually going to have a June day predicted for 89 as a high this Friday and mid 70s as a low - very very nice for June this close to the solstice. I can not remember the last time I saw rain. I have often thought about moving back to the Northeast. 7.5 is a nice chunk of land. I really miss ...

the MGB. After the electrical went up in smoke - a guy gave me a pile of wire. I learned how to wire an MGB. Now it is done and I am knee deep in the front suspension. I love working on the MGB.

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Well this is feel good conversation. The reality is that I could never pay to have the things I want done. When the frig stopped working - I ordered a new motor and sensor - took it apart and replaced it. Same with the washing machine. Same with the MGB. When the electrical burned up - I had to lear...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

I have a one story house - shingled it. Carries each bag up the ladder. Most guys have a nice truck with a conveyor that dumps shingles off at the top. I striped the old shingles and did general repair and did stapled down a heavy felt the day before and woke up and it was wrinkled! Guy down the str...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Geesh - you guys would think I am nuts. I built my own addition (two of them), wired, plumed (gas and water), drywall, textured, crown and baseboard, made the kitchen and bathroom cabinets (in my shop), laid saltillo tile, installed the windows and trimmed them with complete windowsills, installed t...

Re: These are a few more of my favorite peeves

well - depending on finance, climate and your interest, I think there are a lot better places than Kingman. Consider Prescott, Payson, and Showlow, for a mild winter and a treeline - some woods and still a town. If you look at a AZ map Coconino and Tonto National forest areas are pleasant. Flagstaff...

Re: 2018 NFL Season

couple things - Mesa is nasty. They killed a sobbing Shaver - https://www.azcentral.com/videos/news/local/mesa/2017/12/07/mesa-police-release-footage-shooting-unarmed-man/108422324/ Also, regarding the fox kneeling post. Once the photos are posted - they are absorbed. The retraction means little. Th...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

No sure if this was mentioned, but the "game and whatever" people took the illegal snapper and killed it. What a world.
