Thanks, John K
I don’t know that I have your email so I’ll thank you publicly for the gifts you picked up off my Amazon wish list. The new house is moving along — drywall is hung and mostly mudded and taped — so soon we’re going to have to start picking up things to put in it. After we come up with the downpayment, that is.
At any rate, my family and I appreciate the decorative floor register (love the Art Deco look, which is in keeping with the modernist decorating scheme we’re going with), and the hookups for an insinkerator is going to allow me to put a disposer under the bar and connect it to the dishwasher there, as well.
I’d also like to thank William P for his many gifts over the months. The new house is going to be much better for these numerous items — and in a roundabout way, much better protected, as well.
— Despite a certain series of unfortunate boating accidents that cost me all my firearms.
Too, let me thank n0escrow for the security cameras he sent, wow, well over a year ago, was it? Instead of putting them in our current home, I waited, because I didn’t want to have to open walls and install wiring, and that patience paid off: I had the low volt guys run the wiring for the 3-camera set-up during that part of the new house build, and the entire security system is now internal to the structure, save where the cameras will physically mount. So I’ll finally be able to put them to good use!
I don’t know that I’ve mentioned it here, but my wife broke her right wrist in two places in a freak sheet rock accident the night before we left for my high school reunion. This morning, after about 10 days, the orthopedist finally removed the splint and put on a cast. In hot pink. We’ll go back next week to see if the cast has loosened, but as of now, no surgery is required, for which we’re both grateful.
Of course, what that’s meant for me is an increase in responsibilities around here, which is keeping me plenty busy and very tired (and often quite stressed. But then, that’s what alcohol is for). So while I haven’t been posting quite as often, I hope the quality of what I’m posting makes up for it.
If not, apologies. I’m just a man, flesh and blood.
