    The alarm system was installed after we bought the house so it was a retrofit instead of it being installed when the house was built, so the sensors are exposed on windows. The doors have a switch in the jamb and a magnet in the tops of the doors so they are not seen.

    On a side note I guess it didn't matter cause when I paint the inside, the windows will become white so the brown sensors on there now to match the stained finish will have to go anyway.

    Good morning all.
    I can still access them by flipping up the drop down support. As long as no weight is on the tailgate panel, it doesn't bother the hinges. I wanted support along the full width of the tailgate panel since climbing up focuses a lot of weight in that area. The drop down support stays put pretty well, but I may add some webbing to the sides to prevent it from opening too far.

    I need to skin the bottom of the main center support with some used 1/4" polycarbonate for better strength and to make sliding the jack around easier. Time to get the tent addition done.

    Yeah... Not sure I should. Thumb's looking like shit right now and I haven't slept well in 3 nights. Afraid I'm gonna need surgery but I don't have the sick time to be off that long I don't think. Just gonna play it by ear (or thumb).

    Yeah... it's pretty bad. It was doing pretty good until the last few days. It started swelling pretty bad over my knuckle in the back last night. Woke up at 2:29 AM and haven't been back to sleep.

    Meet her for lunch today or in the next few?
    I saw that one early on. Glad he listened.
    I decided against plywood and went with a 1"x10" ripped to size to resist splintering. I could do cutouts, but I'll wait to see how much trouble it is to just lift it up. As much movement as there is with the flimsy tailgate, I'm reluctant to reduce the contact area, especially since the bottom of the leg bumps against the Torx heads along the length of the tailgate, helping it stay located.

    I may be cutting down the tailgate panel a little, too. I can push the topper fabric out of the way, but it brushes the zippers a little when folding it open. Not a big deal, but tapering the sides in would prevent it.
    Britt, you probably should. If it's an infection, going now will save you sick time in the end.

    Got a appointment for Thurs for a physical. I'll talk to him then.

    Going too tomorrow. Wanted her to settle in since today would be pretty hectic for her.

    It's not infected I think I've just fucked up a tendon. It's been getting worse the last few days and last night sucked. The only thing I did was mow the yard yesterday but if I can't even mow the yard how am I supposed to work? This sucks...

    Anyway... we did get a couple of inches of rain here today. So I guess I'll watch Mecum Auto Auctions for a while and hopefully this ibupropen will kick in soon.

    Yeah, it's been quiet without little man here to play with since he's back in school. I miss the little guy being here. He loves school though.
