My landlord came over tonight and together we removed the Whirlpool dishwasher because the drain pump died a few days ago. Based on the age of the dishwasher we decided not to replace the drain pump and just install a new GE. Neither of us have done a job like this so we felt pretty accomplished afterwards. It's always good to know what you can do on your own rather than having to rely on others!

I believe it was his sensei that said that.

How can I help you, and/or make you smile, today?

The problem with being on social media, is that you know too many people that you don't know.

Joy is not a feeling. It is a strength. Some people are stupid, that's all there is to it. (And sometimes that stupid person is me/you.) Sometimes you just have to let stupid people be stupid. Don't let stupid steal your joy.

Holding onto unforgiveness and resentment is like drinking poison and expecting that other person to die. Anger will eat you up.

Got more of those than I can deal with. next up, tearing a glued on mirror off a wall and tearing oak floor out of a bathroom and cutting a perfect line through floor and subfloor under center of door. The other shit I'm going for PHD. (toilet, sink, faucet replacement)

Come to think of it, next DW will be number 10. Status: GURU.

Truth! Just thinking back at all the home improvement "opportunities" I had in my homes I owned is exhausting. And it's nice to have friends with experience who can supervise and help. Plumbing, flooring, electrical, roofing, framing, tear outs and installs, counters, painting, drywall, appliances...

That's why I always volunteer to help him out, so one day when there is no landlord to call I can do it myself. :bigsmile:

Shot bogey golf today. That's good for an old guy like me.
I used to have a 14 handicap at North Shore golf course in federal Way b.c. (before children) gave up golf while raising kids sans once a year outing.

We joined the local golf club here for 2 months....unlimited golf and driving range for $200 / month (both of us $400) .
That's a great deal considering it is $50/18 holes each.

We have been playing 3 times a week, typically 9 holes but today was 18 holes.

Found out today one of our local Class III dealers is hosting a suppressor and machine gun shoot in the Austin area at the end of February. Looking forward to it :bigsmile:

As a plain old civvy any opportunity to shoot full auto is always a good time. Also thinking of buying a Dead Air Odessa 9mm pistol suppressor so this looks to be a perfect opportunity to demo before buying.
