Love the light, I hope you keep it up there.
This is it:

Granted, itís a dinky little thing but as long as you donít overload it it will produce a crisp line. I also buy the green Frog tape (which is supposed to produce a crisp line but doesnít IME) but I only use it on trim. Now that Iím getting familiar with using caulk Iím using tape less and less. On this room I just taped the baseboards, door frames and window ledges. The ceiling and inside edges of the windows were cut by hand using just the edger tool.

Fyi, I also have one that fits at the end of a painters pole for doing the crown molding in the foyer.

Thanks for the link, I'll look into that next paint job.

We're tackling one of our patio doors today. Wish me luck.

From yesterday- needed to renew my wife's car registration (was due in Oct.) Went online to do it and her car was not on our account- so off to the DMV. We have an express DMV that only does the easy things (thus making it much faster and less crowded.) So I went there and waited in line for 15-20 mins. Get up to the window and in my head I'm thinking that this is going to be a breeze. Hand the lady my paperwork and she plugs in into the computer. Hands it back to me and says that there is an issue with the registration and I have to go to the "regular" DMV. So away I go. Now instead of being there at 9 am right when they open I am rolling in at 10. Get my ticket and sit down. After an hour or so get called to a window. After about 15 mins of talking to the lady and her calling around she tells me there is something wrong with the title and I have to call CarMax because they messes something up when we bought the car (In May 2017).
So I call CarMax get a title number and then call DMV. 45 mins later I final am able to register the car. All told it took up most of my day dealing with the DMV. fun times.

I feel your pain 757 Dad!1 Cars are challenging us also at the moment. We currently have 2 courtesy cars sitting on our drive. My car is having body work and my wifes a new inter cooler. Just what you need before Christmas and already struggling financially.

Ok... so I didn't do this today, but the day before Thanksgiving.



I got an OK Joe's longhorn reverse flow for my birthday, and this was the first smoke that I've done in a few years. The most tender ribs that I have ever cooked.

She likes ribs more than me, so somewhat. I can't tell you the last time that I impressed her.

Doing the normal monday shuffle. Monday's tend to be my time to play catch up for the mess that was made over the weekend.
