Holy Crizzap!!!!! I thought I retired!!!! Left the house this morning for a short list of Honey-Do's, nearly 12 hours later I finally get home. :roll: Job was an hour out of town, which is an hour and a half both ways with holiday traffic.

Well, sure, but I think twice as fast, so it should average out, right? :ugeek: :lol:

Thinking twice as fast? Well... if all your "fast thinking" actually is useful and relevant then you might be on to something... :twisted: :mrgreen: :lol:

Sure has been slow around here lately. It's gotta be Nutzy's fault. :mrgreen:

Nobody doing anything interesting?

I've been busy with honey-do lists, both my own and from others. When I'm not doing that I've been trying to work on the Burb. Yesterday I stained the tool boxes I built for the back of it and tinkered with a few things.

Yeah where are all the deck and shed questions this year? Sheesh.

It's a cool and rainy start to summer here. Yesterday was hot but it's mostly been pretty cool and/or rainy.

We broke 90* today, I think the high was 94*F, supposed to cool off into the 80's for a day or two and then back into the 90's. Oh, joy, 100+ just around the corner. :roll:

I don't tend to complain about the weather, but we have VERY narrow windows of not cold and way too hot. The natives like to say that Cali has 4 seasons, that is not really the case, though, it's either too F'ing cold or too F'ing hot with a few weeks of just right in between.

We've had a few deck/shed Q's over the past few weeks, just not quite as many of those or the general Q's we usually have once the weather starts to get nicer.

uhhh ???? Whud I do now :o :shock:

It seems slow everywhere ... I sometimes help at another DIY site, and it's slower than molasses there too. Even the electrician site I'm on is super slow.

Maybe everything has been answered ??? Or the weather ??? Or maybe Sprucey is right and it's me 8-)

Yeah, I don't know that we have any oddities around here like that, those kinds of things seem to be more midwest attractions. :lol:

The pix don't do the size of that truck justice, it is easily 12' tall. A lot of thought and work went into it.

Shannon is too thorough. Maybe post 90% of the videos and then finish with a plug for the forums in order to see the rest.

No way, because he has my full respect for being thorough and not resorting to cheesy "cliffhangers" to juice revenue or viewer engagement.

It was the shed series that I couldn't stop watching video after video, I was like this guy should have my Patreon money. I have never seen any start-to-finish video with that level of detail or thoroughness before.

And the drywall mudding videos basically showed me I was doing it wrong all this time. Lol

I'd say he knows what he's doing when it comes to the vids, since those are where most of our traffic comes from.

It's only supposed to be temporary until this bathroom gets a do-over, but I think that day will make me sad.
