    What did you do today?

    Is there any legal recourse if they try to say he didn't show up if they denied him entry & didn't send any notice about what was going on? I'm worried they will accuse him of not showing up because that is how stupid they are. The woman we met told us that they charged her twice for the same...

    What did you do today?

    My local Walmart has very few "full time" employees now. In order to be considered full time they have to work full time hours for 12 weeks straight. So they work them full time for 11 weeks and then give them 1 or 2 fewer hours on the 12th week to reset the timer & say they only work part time...

    I'm hoping he's been quiet bc his wife is getting help and not because the worst happened. Hope he & his wife are both OK.

    What did you do today?

    I managed to get the water. They only had 1 case of the kind I wanted but they had a ton of the smaller cases so I got 4 of those and 1 of the large one to make it last awhile. They had someone sanitizing the carts at the beginning, people were all spread out, and there was constant cleaning...

    What did you do today?

    I used to like being around people until I moved down here. People are so stupid around here that I have lost patience with them. But, another thing was my health changed & I started finding that the more time I spent around people the more often I got sick. My immune system sucks when it comes...

    What did you do today?

    I'm OK. Internet has been going out on me & I've been tired. My sleep schedule is all messed up again so I've been sleeping during the day & awake at night. Been playing Sims4. I appreciate the concern. I've been social distancing/isolating since before this virus was spreading because I don't...

    Bath Remodel

    I hope you'll take some pics, Oldog. I've been playing Sims 4 since I'm not feeling great. Allergies are getting to me.

    What did you do today?

    It looks great, Flyover! I went to Lowes in Lake Charles with my friend to get the tub & walls for his bathroom reno. Boxes had handles so they were not too difficult to maneuver. Grabbed a tub spout as well. Friend asked for info about the shower valve I gave him bc he noticed that the copper...

    The cookie clearing extension worked for me. Had to spam it a few times, close the tab, open a new one and put the url in again for it to work.

    What did you do today?

    It looks great! If there is room, you could always add small strips of wood to the larger ones, attach them with screws & nails, and then use screws/nails to attach the top as well as using liquid nails. That way it will have extra reinforcement. I hope that makes sense. My brother was supposed...

    What comes first? Appliances or Cabinets?

    I've usually seen the cabinets go in first then the appliances and any trim then gets added around the appliances. You do need to know the dimensions of your appliances though. If you tried to put the appliances in first you wouldn't have the cabinets as a guide for where they should go & might...

    '95 Chevy C1500 Silverado

    As an update, the guy who "bought" the truck & took the motor out & took parts off of it never paid my brother a dime for it (and probably never will). He still owes my mother for a loan but I don't think he's going to pay her back either. He was going to start repayment last December but his...

    Bath Remodel

    It looks great! Did you add any sort of backers in the walls for future grab bar placement? I'm working on planning grab bar locations for my mother's bathroom & found there are nicer options these days.

    Improper plumbing & trying to remodel bathroom/laundry

    I've been thinking about this still. I noticed that since the plumber dug out the ground underneath the house to access pipes better & didn't fill it back in, it's starting to collapse and undermine the house's supports. I'm going to have to fill it in somehow or add some sort of support wall (I...

    What did you do today?

    Didn't get to move the toilet at my friend's house but we assembled the toilet jack. Ok, I stood there and handed him stuff while he assembled. LOL. I took him to Singer to look at a car to see if he wanted to buy it. He liked it so he drove it home following me. I kept my eye on him in the...

    The laser level is definitely a good idea.

    Best friend's house burned on Easter

    I forgot to get pictures of the roof panels before they went up. Roof is on now but still needs rake trim and some flashing. I couldn't get up on the roof to take pictures. My friends said the new roof was very slippery & they both slid and fell a couple of times. I had told one of them...

    What did you do today?

    Yesterday I went over to help my friend with his roof. I couldn't go up on the roof because I have problems with my ankles on inclines, but I took him to the store to get the screws & some bits that fit on my drill. Also stopped and picked up a stepstool & stepladder that were on sale cheap...
