Its probably better to be self deprecating than self defecating.
Read the fine print. They said skip, but that's probably not going to mean that you don't have to pay it eventually. They likely just extend the life of the loan by a month. I guarantee they aren;t losing anything and have likely figure out some way to make it profit.
Oh yeah no of course.. Definitely extending the length of my loan by a month (and gotta pay a 20$ service fee lol)


I'll take it though. A month isn't much in the grand scheme of things.

My credo
If it's not broken Don't Fix It!
Major had a vet appointment so I'm at the GF house and taking care of hunny do list items. Yesterday I fixed the hinge on her mom's bathroom door, sanded the top of the spare bedroom door so it will close during the summer, cut back the Arborvitae's from deck, cut down the regrowing Sumack on the side of the house, took Major to the vet (he is doing much better with his jaw) and did laundry.

Today I hand skimmed the pool in prep for opening it for use, fixed the bottom of the fence in a couple areas, started more laundry, removed chicken wire that some one tried to patch the chain link fence with, played with the dog for a while, picked up Majors toys in the yard so lawn care could mow, let the 8 year old boy next door drive my rock crawler to learn and experience driving an rc car, finished the laundry, finally sat down and pet my dog for quite a while.

The rest of tonight will be eating food and laying in bed to rest my back and hips. I'm done moving and the hips are letting me know I've done to much in a Short amount of time.

After finishing up the wiring project on the 2011, I started sanding the picnic table so it can get refinished. One leg had developed a split and the paint it had come with had pretty much given up the ghost. It's a cheap table, so it's isn't going to get a huge amount of effort but it is serviceable and should be taken care of. The table top has been sanded. The legs have been sanded but finish sanding is waiting for the glue repair on the on leg to cure. That and all the hours of working bent over has killed my back for a few days. So, it's going to wait a bit.

Sold my small starter coop, deliver it here in a little bit. Normally I wouldn’t deliver but its only about 11 miles away and otherwise Id have to wait for the buyer to rent a truck, probably on friday and they could change their mind by then. These small coops bring $400 new at tsc, crazy for no more than whats there. Its heavy though. I added a handle & wheels to make it a little easier to move.

The picinic table and benches are all sanded. Finishing the project will have to wait until I return home from a business trip. It will probably need another sanding before I start applying the standard red picinic table paint.

I did have to replace the wood screws that came with the table. The assembler did a good job of rounding out the scew heads when putting them all together.

I found this online. I’m thinking of getting one and giving it to Sweet Pea.

Ricky Ricky Ricky... you sir are old and wise enough to know better. But boy I'd sure like to give one to my wife with my name on it.

Got the Bronco cave a bit closer. I don't like working on a ladder... even a little. With the uneven ground I'm having my neighbor bring his eight foot ladder and help me get the last four roof panels on.

Lookin’ good

I’m with you on the ladder, but I still do it all the time. I just spend a lot more time making sure it’s solid on the ground, and I go at a snails pace. Coincidentally,, right now I have to lean the extension ladder up on the shed of miracles roof and blow off the Pine needles and trim a few branches with the 8 foot chainsaw. When I do something like that, I have to feel OK, it has to be nice weather, can’t be too hot. I postponed it several times, but today may be the day.

It’s also a good place to be if I send Sweet Pea that T-shirt….

I have a pole pruner... extends out to 12 foot or better. No ladders with a chainsaw for me.

Be careful out there.

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
I bought a Roomba (actually a Dolphin Active 30, in case you’re wondering) for my pool. The sad thing is, I’ve paid less for running and driving trucks than I did for this thing.

But those trucks can’t clean my pool and this can’t drive down the road… so I guess it’s worth it.
