Can't win for losing!

Someone recently joked in a thread about "waxing poetically" Well I'm waxing and polishing and I ain't reciting poetry. Just a dumb move on my part for not paying attention. Got a bunch of pine trees on the lane in our HOA to the cleared lot where we park RVs. I got into one of them on the passenger side from just behind the entry door to the end of the unit. to make it worse, their about five feet up going to the top which means work off a ladder. Fortunately no paint damage, just the mar marks where it took all the wax off in multiple streaks about 20 to 25 feet long. Due to the heat and other commitments, I limited to a couple of hours ever 2-3 days to work on it so I'm looking at around a week or so to get this done. The real bummer is that I paid to have it waxed in mid July.

Sounds like a scorcher................at least you have humidity in the teens......right?
Here in Florida it's in the low 90's but with 80% plus humidity. You start sweating before you start working

Wrong: you start sweating just thinking about working.

Just the thought has advanced the clock to Bud-thirty twice in the past three days.

Come up for a visit and I'll help. We've had less than 15 days over 70 this summer.

But it's a "dry heat" and it won't bother you. At least that's the BS they told me before I went to Vegas the first time. Thought I was walking around in the exhaust of a Greyhound Bus the whole time I was there.
