i get in trouble alot, often you might say, it seems to follow me, i can get in trouble watching PAINT DRY.any body else have this problem,yesterday i mowed another of my wifes trees while plowing out the back yard so the snow would be gone faster, didn,t meant too but i did. today i figured id make amends and clean the house,i vaccumed, swept, washed the floors , thats when my TROUBLE began, been washing floors for nearly three hours now and im quitting, seems it is hard to get soap off floors, especially if it is dish soap, i figured it was ok , it said gets dirt, grease,and grime off everything, used half a bottle of that stuff just because me an the shelties can get things pretty grimy, been rinseing and even used a squeeze, finally got it to where if you don,t spill anything on it , it doesn,t get soapy or slippery, course i haven,t brought the shelties in out of the snow some days are harder than others.guess im just not MR.DOMESTICATED, and never will be, oh well back to cleaning the shop tomorrow, i know how to do that.

LMAO! I can only begin to imagine how much water you had to use... I would be in real trouble if I tried that here... That would take like half the weekly water

hehehe. you don't know what trouble is! I got 48 wimmens working with me and two other men. Believe me, I stays in trouble!!! (most of it self-inflicted).
A few months ago one of the wimmens (a dis-gruntled ex employee actually) sent a letter to the board and supervisors that one of the other wimmens was having relations of a physical nature with one of the mechanics here at the shop. We were all scratching our heads trying to figure out which one of us three it was (she didn't name names). I knew it was not me, (didn't keep me from getting "the look" at home tho) actually was beginning to feel left out. :^)
Yep, sometimes I come to work just to see what is gonna happen next!

Yessir, TM, that's exactly how you do it. Every so often make a mess and when the little woman sees it she chases you out of the kitchen and tells you not to come back. It's what I call ingenuity. kids do it all the time. They know they can get out of working around the place by messing something up so bad that they are exempt from all future chores.

Your cool Toolman....Cooler than the center seed of an ice box cucumber. .......gfp

Yes sir, i been told that, Mom and Dad use to tell me that even, as a wee baby i had a unique ability to study , interpert, and idenitfy people , places and things, and learn from them, it has severed me well all through life, while i was growning up through my teen years on the mean streets of a roughneck coal town, all through my adult life pretty much so far,seems being astute, or audacious or both, are two necessary things in life that helpful in becomming a good judge of things and if used properly they can serve you well in identifying situtations, starting very young i think was the key for me, seems you can even learn from a playpen.
