    Child bed in progress, the stand is left to do. Sketch made by my wife to follow. The bed is for our first grand son that is expected middle of December. It is going to be a Rocking bed.

    Not necessarily manly or unmanly, but I ran into my high school computer science teacher tonight at a restaurant. She hasn't changed a day and it was a nice blast from the past. And yes, she remembered me. But she also knew my father who taught in town as well.

    Yesterday I re-wired my charger for my Macbook Pro ..... after seven years the mag cord connection decided to go the catastrophic route of peeling and exposing all the wires inside.

    Today I re-built a Hardright brush upside down :whacky011: for @IAmTheJody :yoda. I know it doesn't make sense, but due to it's damage it needed to be done this way. :eek:

    All that's needs to be done now is re-lettering.

    I smoked two big pork butts, all night. About 20 lbs worth. It is fall apart tender, and moist. Pulled pork, baked potatoes, homemade green beans, with cornbread tonight. Mmmmm mmmmm good.

    I was wondering how you got them to sit still while you smoked them, then decided the imagery of you smoking their butts was too disturbing to carry on that line of thought.

    Oh, you Yankee Wisenheimers just wouldnt understand. Smoked pulled pork is a Southern tradition.

    Once you get the tail to ignite, it's fairly easy.

    We’ve been having a problem with a leaky kitchen faucet.

    The faucet is a type that has the regular faucet and sprayer in one. The leak was where the faucet head meets the hose. I finally managed to unscrew the head from the hose, but the hose slipped out of my hands and down into the faucet body.

    Pushing the hose back up from under the sink didn’t work, but I am proud of my solution. I went to Lowe’s to buy a small flexible reaching tool to grab it back up. But it would pull it almost all the way & then get caught. So I took a small pick to hold it & pull it the rest off the way, once I released the grabber.

    Next step was to tie the hose into a big knot, so I couldn’t lose it again, while I reattached the faucet head. Meanwhile, I spoke to someone from Moen. They will send a replacement hose & gasket set to fix it more permanently.
