Well yesterday, I did a 5K in the morning with absolutely zero preparation. Who needs to run before a run.... After that I ran some errands with dad and my nephew. Saturday night I participated in a Suicide awareness walk.

This morning I woke up with a headache, threw my laundry in and grabbed some coffee. The rest of the day is still a mystery.
So, Bobby...being the calculating trained warrior NCO that you are.  Take the appropriate action, Execute!

Hey all. Back from the land of kangaroo.
What a load of catching up I had.
Lots going on so I?ll just say hey.

At the cabin chilling with HH6 and the pups.
I just don't want to wind up missing a digit or limb.  I can sometimes get in a hurry to get results.

Wife was gone for the weekend so it was just my daughter and I holding down the fort.  We have a couple apple trees in our yard with tons of apples this year.  We made a pie this morning.  They baked during nap time, and cooled down just enough when she woke up.

I'm pretty sure Nate posted the recipe for this one a couple years ago.  Makes 3 pies with a sour cream filling and crumble top.  It's one of a couple I go to now

that could very well be possible......I have too many recipes floating around, that's why I am making my cookbook/recipe collection.

Well.  I've been a little down in my back so I spent most of yesterday in the floor stretching and working core on the wheel of death.  Little better today but I have a ways to go.  This time was bad.  Pinched nerve.  Move the wrong way and drop to the floor like someone turned out the lights.

I'm guessing snatching my grandads old toolbox off the shelf and walking with it was probably no bueno. 

I was going to go get the dually back from the hide but just can't get moving around much.  Need to get it detailed so I can deliver it to Mr Woody this coming weekend.  Well at least I can round up paperwork and maintenance history files....

Sam good to see you back from down under...

Jon, I don't rough it as I used to but I still go to them all. Next weekend is an advance camp at the Fairgrounds with a sleepover. Friday night will be at 6 flags. I did the mats and cots, now I am an air mattress guy.  Schnapps also seems to find a way into my co-co.

Last Sat we had fun at the rock climbing place.

Going to Australia is on my bucket list, but not for work!

My feet and back are sore, did most of the fence structure today with the neighbors help. I do not recommend using the post foam. Several of the post moved during the curing, some up and over. I think it would work well for holes that are bored true with no taper. The stuff hardens so fast it pulls from the posts and does not spread on the top of the holes. 2 of the post we had to shim to get the polls straight. 2 were filed on the top with cement because of the gaps and 1 we just filled with cement. It is not a clean run for the fence though. The 1st 25ft are metal polls for building an overhang, then another 50 back to the shed that is 2ft higher than the yard grade with shrubs. Should have it done by the end of the week.

This is cured enough that you can walk in it. But your boots stick if you stand.   Think a skid steer will make it across the floor?

Dave it might be worth trying a hot mixed top coat of clear in a test area and see if it helps cure the stuff underneath and hardens

Yeah that?s pretty much a no go.  The next layer would cure on top and not penetrate. Plus it?s long past it?s recoat time frame of 16 hours. Surface needs sanded which can?t happen with wet paint, Guy is pretty hosed now

Weren't you doing industrial coatings at one time professionally, as in you're the resident expert??? And he did NOT take your advice?? What, you date his daughter in the past or something? That'd be like me asking Chief how to break AG equipment and then doing what Shawn told me instead. Looks like he's got himself a lot of scraping work ahead of him.

Maybe it can be scrapped off with heat?

Yep Dave. Been doing research on it for sometime now and just decided why not. There are a few kits but what wheat I see the few brackets are easy to make, so it might be a DIY.

I think Dave's concrete issues were sub-moron related, not so much self inflicted like this poor soul.

Got to work on the 1500 sub to get it gone. Great inside cept headliner, just 87K miles. Rear is blown so I'm shoving a 9.5 with posi under it.

All new brakes, tires and wheels. Turns over but won't start, I figure the old alarm is the issue.

So as mentioned. Blasting is an option but it doesn?t work so well on sticky paint. Gums up the system,   I had never thought of burning it off,

I got him intouch with a guy who wants to simply recoat and call it China.   I don?t agree but it?s not my call.   Like you all said. He dug his own hole.

My brother did the same thing with me Dave. I gave him my concrete guy and he didn't like the price...he had nothing but issues with the guy he picked, cracked slab, hills and valleys 1/2" off from level, etc. I gave him my AC guy, he went with another guy. That guy screwed him and left a mess. The second ac guy almost finished and is now MIA. Then my plumbing guy,........

Last contractor in my house was fired. Ceiling was out by a 1/2 inch, floor was wavy and he used sheet rock screws.

Best part of it all was my dog bit his worker, and he had never bit anyone before  :beercheers:

Dave, I would have him look at Dustless Blasting. Should peel it right off and not damage the floor.

I have washed my hands at this point.  I would have ground the whole floor, fixed his initial grinder marks, polished the concrete like at the home depo or lows or Costco and been done with it for ever.

Got a set of 12ton jacks stand today at HF. I know the 6tons above will hold it up, but they were maxed out for height. Plus the Dmax is next and it is a little heavier than the old sub.
