  1. Not much happening here in Bowling Green, KY except for it raining all night and it should continue throughout the day. Been down for the most part for the past week as my lower back got tweaked. Going into the "Physical Therapist" this afternoon to start rehabilitation. I have not been doing much of anything except for being in the recliner alternating cold/heat packs and watching TV.
  2. Welcome to TPW! Like you, I recently moved from So. California to Bowling Green , KY on October 9th 2018 as my wife retired after 30+ years as a "Special Educator". Been here at TPW from the beginning. This is a great place to connect and get help and sometimes even vent. Welcome to a fellow newbie to Kentucky!
  3. After WW2 my Dad worked as a Bee Keeper. The guy he worked for would transport the bees into the central valley of California during the pollination times for the specific crops. So they would work their way north and then the Boss took his crew to the Sierra Nevada Mountains to an area near "Devil's Postpile" which had a number of smaller lakes and a river. So after dropping off the bees they got to relax in the mountains before heading back to pick up the bees. My dad fell in love with the Sierra Nevada Mountains and would get up there any time he could. After he married my Mom she went with him but she was not a real fan. My Dad fished and my Mom took care of my sister and I. My Dad said the one thing that you had to be aware of was when you had to take a leak. You had be very vigilant when you opened your fly to make sure you didn't get stung by a bee.
  4. Back in 1980 and 1981 I cruised a lot. I did a tour around the world and saw many different cultures. I also cruised in the Caribbean seas. I was advised to keep a look-out for criminals and pirates as things got pretty rough there. I also got to cruise the rivers of Africa and saw elephants up close. It was so much fun. Of course this was when I was working at Disneyland and I was employed there for 2 years as a custodian.
  5. That was the first step making that storage over the garage door. It was all lighter stuff such as all the Christmas stuff that Tami wanted to have easy access to. The rest is mostly empty tubes that can be used down the road.
  6. Yes, it was a nice warm day for a change. Temps actually in the low to mid 70's and it was glorious. The trees over the past couple of days have started bloom. But this morning it was 24 degrees and should not get higher than the low 50's.
  7. Today I finally finished the set up for my garage since moving from Corona, CA to Bowling Green, KY! Got everything in its place but will have to tweak some things. The clamps are hung on the wall along with 6 saw horses. The 2 large metal shelves I got to go through all of it. When we get a new shed 1or both of those shelves will go into the shed. I am waiting now for some dust collection fittings for the new Saw Stop from Rockler. Since I do not have a dedicated dust collector, I will use my Ridgid shop-vac. I knew I had to finally use those Rockler Gift Cards as they have been in my wallet for a long time.
  8. Just making snow angels....ummmm....snow planes in the snow.
  9. Being that I now live in Bowling Green, KY where all the Corvettes are manufactured, I found this very humorous. A senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of the dealership. Taking off down the road, he floored it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little gray hair he had left. "Amazing," he thought as he flew down I-94, pushing the pedal even more. Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a state trooper behind him, lights flashing and siren blaring. He floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then 120. Suddenly he thought, "What am I doing? I'm too old for this," and pulled over to await the trooper's arrival. Pulling in behind him, the trooper walked up to the Corvette, looked at his watch, and said, "Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a reason for speeding that I've never heard before, I'll let you go." The old gentleman paused. Then he said, "Years ago, my wife ran off with a State trooper. I thought you were bringing her back." "Have a good day, sir," replied the trooper.
  10. Tami and I have been a number of times to the Maloof house since we lived so close to it. The gardens and grounds are beautiful. Glad that you got to see the place.
  11. Following up after I got the new rolling tool box. In my previous post of my new rolling tool box, I was thinking about building a new primary work bench that would allow my new rolling tool box to be able to go underneath it. Well.......I went to Sam's Club and was walking around and I came down the aisle and saw this "Work Bench" with a wood top that was adjustable. So I checked the measurements and how high it would go and found that it would be perfect. So I bought it and took it home and put it all together. So now I have to buy a new vise for the new table.
  12. On a "Side Note" about the rolling tool box from Home Depot: When I went into our Home Depot one day a few weeks back, there were 8 of these rolling tool boxes just inside the main entrance door from the parking lot. I saw them and it got me starting to think (I know, thinking in Home Depot can get me into trouble). Since I pretty much go into Home Depot to look and/or buy something for the garage/house about 4-5 days a week, I kept seeing those rolling tool boxes. So then I took my wife with me into Home Depot (happy wife, happy life) she said you should get one of those to make your garage more efficient. So after a few more times to Home Depot I went and told the guy at the Pro-Desk that I wanted to buy one of them. He said no because all of those rolling tool boxes were purchased by one customer. So I said can you order one for me and he looked it up and got one set up to be shipped to the store. So when I got there last night to pick it up I asked who bought all those other rolling tool boxes. He said that it was bought by a "Dog Groomer" for his shop. I was perplexed for a few seconds....ok....more than a few seconds. Then the light bulb went on in my head and saw that it was a great idea for a Dog Groomer shop. They could roll the tool boxes around and they had all kinds of space for their various dog grooming tools as opposed to ratchets, sockets and screwdrivers.
  13. With the downsizing from my California 3 car garage to a 2 car garage, I decided to get a new rolling tool box from Home Depot. It has lots of storage and built in electrical outlets on the side. It also has 2 USB outlets so I can keep my cell phone charged. I am chewing on making fold down work table over the top of the tool box to get more useable table space. So the shop is still in progress.
