Company coming

It's gonna be a sparse week here.  Company coming, so I'm running around like the proverbial chicken.

Yesterday I looked at the garage and decided I couldn't stand it any more.  The trouble is that I expect to store both my gardening stuff AND the Sante Fe in there and over time it gets too crowded. I don't like doing that sort of thing on Sunday, but I decided it would only take about an hour to take everything out, and another to put everything back, so that would give me the rest of the day to relax.  I should know better.  Five exhausting hours later I finally got the garbage bagged up.  I did get the boxes with Dad's tools unpacked after 3 years and if anyone ever hears me say I need to buy a wrench, plyers, saw, clamp, screwdriver, or any of a variety of common tools, well, no, it's in the garage.  Doesn't matter what size, it's in the garage.  And wood putty.  I don't need to buy wood putter.


  1. At least it was time well spent even if it was a Sunday, look at it this way: It's done now.

  2. It's done, for six months, then you'll have to do it ALL over again :-) BTDT!

  3. "store both my gardening stuff AND the Sante Fe in there"

    There's your trouble...Where did you get the idea a garage should have room for a vehicle? Where are you going to put the stuff?

  4. @Matt - yes. I keep going down and looking at it.

    @NFO - shhhhhhhh!

    @quizille - LOL! That's exactly what my daughter keeps telling me!

  5. To quote myself, after trying to find a tool in my late father's formerly-organized workshop:
    expetive expletive you expletive people If you can't find it, you don't have it! Put it back where you found it, you expletive expletive people. I may have an issue here... Or maybe it's them.
