    I bought my wife a new Bosch Dishwasher.
    You know how many razors I could buy, for the price of one of those things???
    What's so hard about washing dishes by hand, anyway???

    Taking care of girlfriend who just had cataract surgery. Drops several times a day. I do lifting and driving and cooking. Now getting plastic eye patch ready with some elastic.
    ( making much needed " brownie points!")

    (Since she is a nursing instructor , I rarely get to take care of HER!)

    Nothing really. And it only takes a few minutes.
    Don't forget the well known fact that no husband has ever been shot while washing dishes.

    I upgraded the electrical service to my garage yesterday.
    This afternoon I'll be planning and running some new outlets and lighting.

    I usually end up washing most things by hand anyway. She hates it. She will load the dishwasher, and not start it, until it is fully loaded. By that time, we are out of silverware, and bowls. I guess I can't complain, the dishwasher lasted 15 years, and sprung a small leak in the drain hose. That was all the excuse she needed to find one that matched her new color scheme.

    I am drilling a drainage hole into a ceramic flower pot. This has to be done slowly and patiently or you will break it. If on the other hand, you don’t drill the hole, but do plant something in it, your plant will die.

    I was giving a Nissan Pathfinder with some issues. This mornings chore is to drill out the brackets (all of the screws broke on removal) and replace both lower trailing arms. I'm going to remove the driveshaft (transfer case yoke is bent from the trailing arms breaking). Lof of rust on the drums, so I'm thinking they need replacing. The fun never ends.

    I finally got through the bottom of that flower pot. Once I saw that there was a small opening, i realized that it was best to go to a smaller drill bit. When that one got all the way through to the inside of the pot, I moved up to progressively bigger bits. I'm done with the 1/2 inch bit. That's as big as I plan to go.
