Howdy!

Hot and humid. Sweating as usual. Just got back from babysitting the nursery for a couple of hours. Now back to my yardwork at home. I do what I can do.

Hey guys, Yup, cabinets came in.....not good, but they are here. FedEx driver tells me there are three pallets, so when he opens up the trailer (I'm the last delivery of the day, so my stuff is all that is on) I see two pallets as I expect and one NOT. They package the parts up in special boxes, well one pallet just had cabinet pieces shrink wrapped to the pallet. I told the driver that wasn't 'normal'. And once I got them all unloaded, I could tell they (FedEX) had, apparently, dropped the pallet and the pieces were strung all over, and they ditched the box and just shrink wrapped the pieces to the , now trashed, pallet. Rosie and I went through all the pieces separating the damaged pieces out. I don't even know if all the pieces are there. I've contacted the company and they will replace anything missing or damaged...one reason why I deal with them.

Last week, I had been asked if I do any pro=bono work. They were concerned about a lady, who about two years ago was involved in a really bad car accident and nearly died, but has worked her way back, but still has walking problems. She is the owner of our local flower shop (while she was in the hospital, friends kept the shop open for her so she would go bankrupt. Anyway the concerned citizens were woried about a ramp she uses to enter the backdoor (where she goes in and out), so I went by to look at it and speak to her. She, very humbly, said it worked ok, but in reality, it was quite feable. Her concern was "How much will this cost me?" "Rita, I will do this for nothing for you." She was quite taken. Then said "If you are doing that, maybe we can do something about the entry too...I'll pay you to do that one. I have lots of older people who, I'm afraid, might trip and fall." So we discussed what needed to be done there and she says "No hurry, whenever you get to it." I told her I had some nice treated lumber taken from another project that was laying around and I'd use that. So last evening I built the two ramps and about 8:30 last night I took them down and installed them so they would be done when she got there this morning. I needed to go back this morning as it was too dark for me to anchor the one. So I planned to get there and get it done before Rita got there...that didn't happen and when I got there she was extremely grateful for the work and even more surprised with the speed of which I got it done. I still need to order a post for a handrail on the front ramp so I can put the handrail up. All I am going to charge her foris the post I have to order as all the other pieces were left over from other jobs. She doesn't know that yet. she's a sweet gal, I don't mmind doing it for her. Rosie says I'm really building my reputation around town doing these Pro=bono jobs for older people.

Been working all morning on three cabinets, need to get back out there and finish them up (as much as I can).

Happy Friday everyone!
T, that was an awfully nice thing you did for the lady. Funny how good you feel after doing that stuff, isn’t it?
I’m not blessed with construction skills, so I try to find those spur of the moment chances to help others. It’s truly a good feeling.
We’ve got the daughter coming home with her BF for the week. Currently waiting on them to arrive so we can head out for margaritas.
Lastly, our veterinarian is getting rich this week as Ralphie the wonder dog (aka wreck it Ralph) has developed pancreatiti$. We’re fairly worried about him too. Funny how when they’re not barking and driving us nuts we get so worried about them.
Have a great weekend everyone!

How's the knee doing Bob? A lady I went to school with and then we both ended up teaching together here, for more than 30 years and we retired the same year, has needed both knees done...heck, longer than I needed mine (had mine done 8 years ago now), finally got her first one done last week. she's getting along pretty good with it. She's having the second one done in November.
