    When I worked for the phone company back in the 60's and 70's that is how the fleet maintenance oil changes happened.

    You too, thought I was the only one! :)

    Was playing Mike today, fixed the windshield washer hose on the 99 Chevy truck. Seven bolts to hold the battery tray down and need to pull the inner fender liner partially out to access the reservoir, who comes up with these ideas---and that's an easy fix anymore! :(

    Quick update on our living room project. We started to paint yesterday with a completion date of Wednesday. The carpet installation is Friday. Still waiting for a delivery date for the new furniture.

    Wife & I installed 600 sq ft of dark strand bamboo flooring from Lumber Liquidators yest. & today. What a job! The bamboo is denser than red oak. But it looks great. It's prefinished 1/2" thick boards in 6' lengths. We mixed up the seams for random joints. We make a good team after 40 years together.

    Took me 6 hours to cut in the living room walls and put a second coat of paint on the trim today. My son came home at 3:30 and rolled the walls. Wish I was 50 again.

    I don't know what hurts the most, my feet from going up and down the ladder to cut in the top half of the room or my knees from cutting in the bottom half of the room. It will be a 2 Advil night tonight. I will post up a few pics once we complete the room.

    I bought knee pads but they were cumbersome so I used wife's garden kneeler. Temp was 80 yest. so we had A/C cranked up. Still sweated like the proverbial pig.

    Once told someone that I only have one talent. He asked what it is. I replied "sweating". He asked how is that a talent?

    My reply: it makes look like I am working hard when I am not :thumbsup:

    All the snow in Kalifornia, was wondering if anyone here in the mountains had a snow shovel disappear. Well, the radio had a story that one small town (that's all we have) in the county had a Caterpillar loader disappear the other night from a county works yard, headed south to Lake Tahoe direction per a camera. Most snow for February since records have been kept the last 70 some years.

    Not to dismiss the weather discussion, but was wondering if anyone has some positive feedback on the Freemasons? Is it a worthy group to connect with as a guy over 60?

    Afternoon all:
    I would say go for it! I have had several chances to "ask" to join, plus several of my ancestors were Masons as well as some of my current friends. I'm too much of a loner and really don't like to be part of a group, otherwise I think I would have joined a long time ago.
    All up to you!

    Thanks, I may be the same as you... There is some family history and a quest for knowledge about the Golden Ratio, the numbers associated with Venus and all living things, etc. I am just a quest for knowledge kind of guy... Why I write about history down in Baja California, plus my books:
