    Sure does Carl.

    But on a different topic, a small package of bio degradable baby wipes is more compact than a roll of TP and easier to store.

    Too late. They already have both.

    I see that had already been said. Should have read the whole tread before posting.

    Hi Tom, after 6 months of health issues with the wife then cataract and mohs surgery for myself, we decided to head back to Bali again this year. After seeing the cold and snow you folks were getting, I didnt want to say anything about the upper 80's we have here. Getting away from it all is nice.

    Sorry about the health issues. My wife goes in for cataract surgery on Monday the 18th of February. Then in another 2 weeks she has retina surgery on the same eye.

    We are redoing the living room this winter but I have to wait till after the retina surgery to get started. I have started to purchase items as they go on sale or a discount. I have my fingers crossed that the Sony XBR65A9F tv will be on sale from an authorized dealer this Presidents Day sale. Going out furniture shopping this coming Friday.

    Sending good thoughts on all the surgeries. I've been "enjoying" a root canal process - 3 sessions and now one more scheduled to put in the permanent filling. Joy.

    Lynn wanted to re-do our pantry area. We didn't put in cabinets when we built - bought metal shelves instead. After 14 years, it was time to do it right. We purchased quartersawn oak cabinets that match the rest of the cabinetry in our house. Cabinets are now installed and the installer was here on Friday to template the countertop - will be the same as we have in our kitchen, etc.

    Thanks Carl we will. No snow here to contend with just the possibility of earthquakes, eruptions and tsunamis:annoyed:

    Cataract surgery was easy, but pray the wife does good woth the retina surgery. A friend had it and he had to keep his head down in his lap most of the time. :pray:

    Root canal:facepalm:best of luck. Hated getting mine done but dentist wouldnt pull the tooth.

    The pantry looks amazing:thumbsup:. Lynn happy with it?

    Hi Tom, 2 Thanksgivings ago we stumbled on a Sony Bravia 4K 65 in. Tv at Best Buy. A guy bought it and his wife must have said take it back:eek:. It was still sealed with the factory shipping tape and because it left the store thay had to sell it as an open box item. Got it for 70% of the original cost and if it was damaged we could return it for a full refund. Got an 18 month no interest on the credit card. Was a win/win. The only issue I have is its not bluetooth compatible but I bought (29.99 on Amazon)a transmitter that works great with no noticeable voice lag(like you get in Japanese translated movies like the original Godzilla). Just another place to look. Good luck with your search.:thumbsup:

    Very nice.
    How much space have you lost though?
    I found you can cram more crap on open shelves lol...

    Very nice, always wanted a pantry in a home. Built a lot kitchens with a pantry off to the side. Some have had a door with full glass, “ PANTRY “, painted on the door. The coolest kitchen I work on had a walk in cooler with a wood and glass door. The butler pantry was a hallway that led to the dining room. Imagination has never been my problem, it’s the money thing.

    In reality, none. Having the shelves led to keeping all sorts of stuff there we didn't need - crap just as you noted. Lynn sorted out the extraneous things we'd accumulated over the years and either moved it to a more appropriate place or got rid of it. She was able to place everything else back in the cabinets - or on top where she keeps baskets that she uses. Once the countertop is installed, she has a few things that she's keep there but, otherwise, it is a much better layout for us.

    Thanks. We should have put the cabinets in when we built the house - it is a much more efficient approach. Our house is a custom design/build - we worked with an architectural firm who designed it with us. Of course, we had to scale back a bit when the first design exceeded our initial budget by a bunch. Tat actually made us look more realistically at what we needed/wanted and we got a better house in the end. One of the best things we did was to design the laundry/mud room with a full walk in shower with both a shower head and lower spigot to fill buckets. You can enter from the garage or a side porch so you don't have to traipse through the house, pull off dirty clothes from working outside, throw them in the washer and take a shower. It is also a life-saver for dealing with muddy dogs.

    Late to the party, but I've had my 04 Limited for about 9 years now. 61 and still going, just not going like I used too. After 3 spinal fusions, not doing as much off road as I used too. My DD is more of a grocery getter than a utility truck. Haven't been hunting or fishing, or camping in 6 years. Sleeping on the ground just isn't going to cut for me any more. Glad that I grew up when I did. I still get out from time too the shooting range, but I'm pretty limited to my outdoor activities. when I was in my 50's, used to wish I was back in my 30's, but now, I think nope, better off to just stay where I am. I still try and do as much of the work needed on my truck, but I have to recruit some help lifting heavy things. This Tacoma only has 132k miles and will be my last vehicle I own, unless it up and dies on me.
