    Sparrows, rat with wings

    I have a little siding leftover. He was making it sound like he couldn't complete it with siding...I wasn't quite understanding why, something about how it finished off up top [it appeared none of the others were finishing it either when they were that close, so he seemed on to something]. I...

    Sparrows, rat with wings

    For those that know, I have that side on my house that was redone...but it was never completely finished to the top. It has one small section on top that wasn't finished and there's a small gap between the siding and the roof where the sparrows didn't waste any time making a home. The last guy...

    Fairy Circle

    What?! Fungi is amazing on pizza. Maybe not *this* fungi though. I've never seen one either, and that's about how it happened. I stepped on a couple small shrooms while mowing and the next morning there was a whole ring. I was getting text and calls all that day informing me of the fairies...

    Fairy Circle

    Not sure if this is where I would put this, but late last month I had a fairy circle pop up in my yard and it was a little amusing how much excitement it stirred up around town. I had cars stopping and taking pictures, this group called the red hats came and had some fun with it, and even the...

    Unsure about washer/dryer set

    That's a good idea, but neither of us is going to be willing to pay for it to be done. I think I'm just going to tell her to just try to sell it to someone else...too many unknowns for me, and too much hassle if it doesn't work. My set will probably break tomorrow now. ;)

    Unsure about washer/dryer set

    Yes, I have gas. :) Your link lead to a blank page, but we think I have the right hookup, as it has a huge plug that looks much the same...would have to check of course before any moving. I'm really hesitant though because I just don't know how to make the hose work, and not knowing if the set...

    Unsure about washer/dryer set

    No, sadly we have no way of testing it at her place. One of reasons she isn't keeping it. I'm trying to remember if it's 240 or 120...is it a huge difference on how long it takes to dry? That could help in my decision making. I don't know, I know if we could test it first and I understood that...

    Unsure about washer/dryer set

    I have a old stackable washer/dryer set...all considering, it's been holding it's own and I've had very little problems. With that, my friend has another set that's newer and I'm wondering if I should replace before that day comes where mine hits the dust [as it's going to happen...it's over 20...

    Broken Beyond Repair

    I called the police and got an attorney. The police normally don't get involved [civil], but they were so angry by what they saw, they called osha. It didn't help me too much directly, but it did get some indirect justice. Was some talk going to the press, but didn't happen. He pretty much...

    Haha I'm not sure why people pay people for that stuff, but pretty sure I wouldn't be one of them. I'm not very big into that social media stuff either, what I share in regards of the dogs...it's all for a smile, kind of takes away from it then hey. :)

    Yeah me too, be nice to rest a little. I've tried everything I know of. I had a church step in, then quietly step out [they were depending on one of their members to lead it, and he flaked out-not really their fault, I'm sure they felt bad]...that's as close as I got. I'm disabled, but not a vet.

    Broken Beyond Repair

    It was, and could very well depend on each branch. I did find their applications and indeed it said they only help families of ...I think it said 2 or more [might have been 3, I'm not positive. It's been SO long now].

    Broken Beyond Repair

    That's a good idea, and I did. It was real hard to even get them to respond, I had to send them a picture of the side of the house to get them to...then they told me they didn't know what I was expecting from them, they only help families. I don't qualify because I'm a single person.

    Broken Beyond Repair

    Thank you for the kind words. I've since had the city called on me because they don't like the looks of my home, they toss new things at me when I least expect it...I suppose I should have saw it coming. Anyway, I can't afford another contractor since I still have to pay the bank for this...
