Because it may be 1:00 the next mornign before I finally hit the rack. Last summer, Robbo and the Missus generously gave us their side-by-side Samsung Warp 9 do-everything fridge when the kitchen at Orgle Manor was redone. We put the Samsung in the garage here at the post headquarters (located, of course, amidst the vast real estate holdings which comprise Fort LMC) and used it to hold beer, soft drinks, and other overflow items. My bride liked it better than the Kenmore refrigerator in the kitchen, a nondescript black model which only keeps frozen stuff frozen, and cold stuff cold and often commented we should switch the units. Last night, we did. Of course, I had to take off the doors of both units to get them through the exterior doors, purchase a hand truck to manuever both by myself, cut the water off when I ruptured the supply line for the fridge water and ice-maker, et cetera, et cetera. We finally put everything where it belongs but not after much effort, drama, a few choice words which should not be repeated in front of clergy or small children. Needless to say, there were many times when I wished I left well enough alone.

Yips! from Robbo: Sorry, buddy. My Good Intentions Paving Company only seems to be able to take contracts on roads going in one particular direction. On the other hand, we just got a boat-load of Spendulus money from The One, so we got that going for us.

There's a reason certain things reach the status of "old sayings."

Home project stories kept many of my former co-workers entertained. A friend of mine was fond of outsourcing such work and would advise "just the nice man to come to do it for you"....
