Hey, thanks! The next time my wife says, "Why is this taking you so long??", I'll adopt a proud posture and say that. (Then, once she finishes laughing...)

Sorry, you've lost me, but it sounds like a great story, so I hope you'll elaborate.

They used to include tubes of BBQ sauce in the middle of cans (that's right, cans) of hot dogs, but I don't expect anyone here to remember back that far.

Okay, this confirms it—I just downloaded the manufacturer's more detailed product brochure, which says:

Quote:
Excellent adhesion to ceramic, porcelain, glass, fiberglass composites, enamel, aluminum, stainless steel, wood, many plastics and wallboard. It also works great as an over-coat if you've been dumb-*** enough to use non-water-resistant caulk in a damp location.
(It doesn't actually say "dumb-***"; the forum did that. Real handypeople don't shy away from the occasional mild oath, which is considered character-building—unless you're, say, Amish.)

The Los Angeles Basin, in the 60's thru 80's, was rife with topless establishments and some of them had stages conducive to a variety of entertainment.

Before their eventual popularity, Sonny and Cher, needed a source of income, and
there was an abundance, as an average, the usual "dancers" would take home $250 to $400 for an 8hr. shift, and they played a variety of venues, along with a number of fledgling bands of the era.
