PT is usually three times a week, plus I work at it at home. Your right I never said I was bored, my father kept me very busy. (and with good reason). Hows the carpet job going? Have a great day all.
Hi Terry;
Carpet template went well. Found out it is more difficult to crawl into some of the spaces than I thought. Next time I will take the seats out. Would have made it a lot easier.

Found out the carpet place only carries apartment grade carpet. Tough but thinner than Janet wants. Will have to order whatever we think we want. Going in later today to talk with them and make final arrangements.

Have a good one.

Hi Gordon, is the carpet place going to bind the edges? or is it hidden under the transition strips. We have found some nice carpets at Home Depot and Lowes also. There is a discount place up here called Grossmans don't know if they are all over or not sometimes they have some too. Good Luck

Hey Terry and BAP

The carpet will be bound.

I just wish we were closer to you guys. It would be fun to see the work you are doing first hand and work with you. I have a great feeling that I would be learning lots of new things.

Feelings are mutual, I find if I keep my ears/eyes open and my mouth closed I learn more . My father always said you want to learn, watch. When in my businesses I always tried to educate people around me if I could, made life sooo much easier. Much of what I know I got from someone that was willing to help me, just find it great to help someone else. Its fun working/talking with like minded folks.

Hi Guys! It seems that like minded guys find one another on the threads like this one! When I bought my last semi, I never planned on selling it, and did things to it, like cutting a hole in the back wall and installing a fantastic fan, to pull the hot air out! I had a buddy come over and he just cringed when I got the saw out! But when I was done, and he saw how much air it pulled thru the truck, he was like, OK! It turned out very nice! I also cut a hole in the back wall for a window A/C unit, as the roof was too much of a angle for a roof top unit. It also turned out very nice, and was a lot cheaper! As I said, I never planed on selling it, and was going to make a 5th wheel hauler out of it when I retired! Well things change, and I met my DW, and you see where I am now! And the guy and his wife that bought my semi, were so happy, when they got it! They got a hell-of-a-deal! I had my trailer set up to do the slot machine haul, so it was a pretty specific type of logistic trailer, and I thought it might be hard to sell, so a couple of months early, like 6 or so, I put it in the truck trader, just to see? Not a week went buy, got a call from a guy in Chicago, said he was looking for just what I had! Told me if it looked as good as the pictures, he would buy it! So I made a appointment to take it buy his shop the next time thru. He bought it on the spot! I was like, but, I am still using it? He said not to worry, he was not in a hurry, as he had another one being customized and it was not done yet. This guy was the head of the Chicago Film Industry, and was going to make a wardrobe trailer out of my old trailer! He said it would probably never leave Chicago, so in a way, it got to retire too! And he paid my asking price, never tried to get me to come down! All my friends said, you got how much out of your old trailer???
Hope this entertained you a little bit, Terry? I know you are sitting there bored, wanting to be out in the TH! Rail!

Good Morning All, Bap, you are so right about the hammers , some times its comical, sometimes its dangerous . I work all the time to keep my hands limber so I can do fine work like soldering wires and stuff, working on motorcycles getting into tight places is challenging. Rail, thanks for the memorys, at this time in our lives we have alot of them. You also pretty much nailed it, I sit here more than I care for, yesterday I was plowing snow so not too bad, 17* degs this morning supposed to be 28* no snow today, thrusday more snow, then temps are headed for the celler way below 0* for highs for several days. Catch all later.

Don't know how you folks deal with that much snow and ice. We are having another 70 degree day here. Our winters are only 2 to 3 weeks long. And not always consecutive. We should have one or two more cold days along here directly!

We ate about to enter our rainy season. We're hoping to fill the lakes up so we can restock them with fish. We're driving across them now.
Maybe we should start sending our rock truck your way and get them to haul your snow down for our lakes.

That's a joke. Our rock trucks could never make it that far. They can barely hold together long enough to make a days rounds without breaking down now

Ya'lll stay warm and come visit when you can..

80 inches!!!!

Dang, I"m only 73 inches tall!

I've got a guest house. Come on down!
Oh wait a minute, it's got a major set of stair that have to be negotiated to get to it.
But there's no ice!

Been meaning to build an Elevator for it in case the MIL ever came to live with us. But, she's in a nursing home in Lake Forest IL now, so no chance of that happeneing.

But, I do have two RV Elec hookups and a dump station out by the shop.
You'd like working in my shop!

Curtis, too bad about your trucks not being able to come get the snow!!!!!!!
Maybe you could get one (several) of those 2 mile long trains I see whenever I drive through Texas come instead??????

Where I am now , there is about 1000' of a 12' high snow pile , as high as a big case bucket loader can push it..and there are many more like that everywhere I look ! Lots of roof cave ins too. We're closer to 8-9 feet here in Maine. More on the way Thursday and Sunday too.

You could fill up LOTS & LOTS of dry lakes no problemo .
Many places on the coast are just dumping it in the ocean......
It should taper off sometime in April,,,,(or MAY ?)so it will be gone by the start of "summah" (officially July 4th!)

I'm with Terry on the 70* sounds so nice. And 3 weeks of winter sounds like a major pain to get through. When can we move in ? I'll pick Terry up on my way ........Oh My GOSHK !
Skuh kuh kuh kuh kuh kuh kuh
