    Not really a joke, but kinda funny: And besides it's only gonna be around 102, so no biggie. Phoenix is expected to mark its 139th day of triple-digit temperatures on Tuesday, which is also the 280th day in the calendar year. That means 50% of the year so far has been spent in triple digits here in Phoenix. 😲 WEATHER: 12News.com/Weather #azwx #12Newswx
  2. I like the look of the finish on these cabinets. What species of wood did you use? What finish did you use? Oh, and is that Jolly Rodger peeking out of the upper part of the near cabinet?

  4. Ahoy mateys, shiver me timbers, and prepare to be boarded! tomorrow is International Talk Like a Pirate Day! http://talklikeapirate.com/wordpress/sample-page/
  5. The title of this thread is carved on the tombstone of Rodney Dangerfield.
  6. Back on the Salt River with my wife (she took the pictures), one of my granddaughters (she liked the "fast, bumpy water" which were a few mild rapids that had some 8-12" standing waves which you have to aim for to hit), and a bunch of wild mustangs trying to beat the heat.
  7. Buy with confidence. I have met this gentleman and he has been a good friend of my sister and her husband for near 40 years.
  8. @Dave A : you may need to change your forum name to Dave Edison pretty soon. Your imagination, skill, experiments, and results remind me of Thomas A from Menlo Park. Please "Keep on Truckin'".
  9. Please allow me to introduce to you, my very good friend, "el Backhando"

    Hey boys and girls

    Sir: You are currently caught up in one of the three most stressful events in life. Please try to remember that your worth to society is not measured by how many amps you possess, how large your speakers or house is, what type of vehicle you drive, or who you may work for. You have one child who aspires to be a doctor, and is progressing. Another who is advancing in high school. These are your prizes. Showing them how you deal with your current adversity will be a much better life lesson for them than expertise in organic chemistry or physics. I say this from experience. When I retired from the Army I flailed about for a few years doing contract health care work. (I was a medic in the Army) This action paled so I switched gears, and retrained into the tech industry. It was a rough two years. But now, 20 years later, my kids have told me how much watching me deal with the situation has inspired them. I am not suggesting that you switch jobs, retrain or anything like that. Advise like that from a 62 year old who can't afford to retire is worthless. I would just like to give ya a few bullets: -try not to get too cranky. I did and it was a rough two years -remember yer family still loves you. Tell them you love them back. -home theaters are a luxury. Two channel is a necessity. -people here like ya, and will give ya support. Use this support. I can't really figure a good ending to this sermon, except listen to and lean on your family, they probably love ya, and that can't be beat. Recognize your end game goals, and make a decision based on that. Good luck. Keep us advised. JBCODD P.S. "It don't mean a thing if it ain't got dat swing"
  11. Raining in Chandler, Az. First rain in nearly four months. Quite refreshing. The wind blew over my patio umbrellas, which were down. Lightening quite close, flickering the house lights. Hope I don't lose the Yankee game.

    The struggle is real.....
  13. I have made two separate purchases and both arrived in good shape, albeit in 7-14 days. I chalk this up to the fact that Mr. V lacks the fleets of planes and trucks which Amazon has, the USPS's budget issues, and the pandemic. Do not think it is due to disinterest on the part of Mr. V. Put your mind at ease and enjoy when purchase arrives. JBCODD
