Lose the keys to the GJ.  We know hiding half of each pair of her shoes won't work.

As A PM for a construction company, I can tell you the devil is in the details.  I have to really pay attention to scope of work to ensure that I don't have gaps and also to the exclusions like not removing debris or surface prep ect.  It is unusual to find a sub that goes above the bare minimum anymore.  And the ones that do are usually not the lowest bidder which is what the office folks are worried about.

I have always felt lost without a watch.  Also, I work in a lot of secure spaces where you can't take an electronic device.  Not even a fitbit or smart watch.

The only downfall to spray foam is the building envelope is so tight you have to watch the humidity and in my cases I’ve had to add dehumidifiers.

There are different types. Open cell is not as air tight as closed cell.

OSHA doesn't approve anything.  The sure will disapprove though.  Only way to keep that from happening is be finished when they get there and not pics.

Looks great to me.

Are the pre rangers still exempt on the duty roster?  A little soot on the hands builds character.

Just like the chimney on the pot belly stove when the guys would run it rich when they started it and by 2 am it won't even produce heat as there is so much residue in the stack.  Clean it up and let it breath.

Got the call about an hour ago that my aunt passed this morning.  She is the one who has been in the nursing home and I have been taking care of all of her affairs for the last 18 months.  Don't know yet the arraignments but trying to get things lined up for Saturday.  We have to travel about 8 hours each way to north Alabama.  Thanks ahead of time for the prayers and support.

Special tool but I would go with the PEX fittings.  It is never bad to have another tool.

I was in Kosovo at Camp Bondsteel.  Just back inside the wire from a clearance mission and got to watch the second plane hit live on TV.  It took about 10 minutes to lock things down and get to 100% security.  Bad juju for quite a while.  Redeployed in Aug and straight to NTC for mission prep.  Recalled from leave on Dec 23 for deployment order for OIF 1 (before it was called that).  We all know how that mission turned out.

Bought a replacement grommet for the fuel valve on my generator.  I pulled it out yesterday and it was leaking but still started on the first pull.  Got to ensure that I can run the house if this storm hits.

Finally got the stiches out yesterday.  Things are going fine.  Still stiff and sore but getting better everyday.  Here is a pic from last week when they took off the big bandage and decided to leave the stitches in since it was over the joint.  Thanks for the prayers.

Thanks.  Better still.  Back at work with the low boot and large bandage on until Thursday when I get the stitches out.  Still some pain but moderate.

Thanks everyone. Been a painful couple days as it was more extensive than first thought. This afternoon I was able to walk a little without serious crutch use.  It is slowly improving. Hopefully able to lose the crutches tomorrow.
