I love projects like yours and mine. My $500 final tab included a brand-spankin'-shiny-new PorteCable framing nailer that I got to keep. "Honey... I need to go get another new tool. OK?"

It already got me a new Milwaukee sawzall. Cheesy

I use a Sawzall on exhaust nuts, takes about 30 seconds per side if you are trying to be real careful!

Suraklyn has much more energy than I have left at this stage in life.  I remember back when, err, maybe I don't remember...  I wish you would buy some tools I ain't got so I can mooch 'em off ya!  Grin

Your Ma wimped on drowning the cat tonight, she didn't like the shampoo I bought so he has a temporary "stay of execution" until tomorrow...  She said she washed his head last night and he dug it, maybe anything feels better than fleas, reckon?

Thanks for the reminder, Justin.  Butterfly is 17 days overdue...  I guess I will have to go make her morning. Sad

I hate doing it to her, but I know it needs to be done.

I use the drops on the back of the neck.

I really do enjoy this here R65 group. The range of subjects unrelated to motorcycles helps remind me that there are other things going on out there.

Shower pan replacements, new tools, kids and parents, cats... it's all good and part of us.

Enjoy the day - whatever you're doing..  Cool

The kat actually seemed to not mind his bath and we still have all of our digits and other important bits intact...

My shower room is nearing completion!  One slight setback is that the shower pan which was not supposed to move, moved!  It was only about 1/2 a millimetre whilst showering, but it was enough for the part row of tiles at the bottom to open up the grout and allow water through! Darn it!  I had to fit a plastic "skirting" to the bottom of the tiles to cover the cracking grout.  I used "No more nails Instant grab" and sealed all round with flexible sealant.  Hopefully that will cure the problem.  I realise now that I should have started with a full tile from inside the bottom of the tray.  Any flexing would have only opened up the grout at the bottom-inside the tray and no leak.  Lesson learned!  The shower pan is one of the new "easy plumb" versions for solid floors.  Unfortunately I didn't get the instructions for the shower fitting until after tiling most of the room.  I ended up with a grouted joint at the edge of the tray.  I had left a section out for the tray-hence the problem. Ah well! Onward and upward.
