  • That microwave looks very nice. We replaced our fridge at the beginning of the year. The repair guy was here yesterday as the new one (6 months old) is dying a slow death. The freezer makes really cold water and I’ve been cooking stuff out of the freezer during the slow thaw. Tomorrow will be a full turkey smoked on the egg.

    I'm pumped. They made the stainless shelves twice as deep as I thought they were going to. Kinda shocked they did that honestly, but I'm sure I'll enjoy the extra space.  I just hope I'm tall enough to open the doors ok.

    You will. The ground under the smoker will also thank you. It looks like the shelves will cover the whole food grates when being pulled out and drips from food. That's key.

    I like the extra doors as well, reverse flows are another beast, can't wait to see it in action

    Step 1 this morning was tiling a formerly carpeted bathroom in my 91 years old grandmother’s guest bathroom. Carpet in a bathroom, I’ll never understand.

    Step 2 was test driving and ordering a new Bronco for the wifey. She approved, so here comes the wait……

    Why is f*cking plumbing always a nightmare? 

    Honey-do: could ya fix the drippy faucets in the bathroom?  Me: sure (inside voice - "groan").

    1. Shut off valves under sink stuck.  Don't want to force them and create yet another problem. 
    2. House shut off (ours) - frozen.  Same as above.
    3. Meter shut off - can't find the damn tool.  Drove to shop and welded one.  Good news, works great to shut off water.
    4. Remove handles on 1920s faucets.  Everything corroded.  WW1 design is easy to service (done it before) if it's not all frozen from mineral deposits, etc.
    5. Two locking nuts and one valve.  Tried using regular person tools and I'm just starting to strip the brass. 
    6. Put handles back on, turn water back on and yell "F*CK IT!".
    7. Order super flat open end wrenches from Amazon (might as well get metric too).  Come in Monday. 

    (note: I've always wanted/needed a set of these, and still about half the price of a plumber).

    @nolaegghead I replaced a kitchen faucet today. Luckily, mine went a little better than yours. I hate plumbing.

    @nolaegghead I despise plumbing. I’ll gladly pay a tradesman to do my plumbing for me.

    Time for this little guy to take a nap. 


    Womp, Womp. Over cooked. Pretty sure I didn’t let it cool enough before throwing in the cooler. Oh well. I will freeze the leftovers for chili or some random night nachos.

    Soon leaving on a short road trip to Fairbury, NE.  Big Boy No. 4014 is making a over night stop there, scheduled to arrive at 5 p.m.
    Then, on the way home, will detour thru Beatrice and have supper at one of our fav restaurants, the Black Crow.
