It was Renee's knot. They've been married for a while now. This was their late ceremony.
We were tempted to jump up there...

I got a FLOWBEE.
It's a hair clipper that attaches to any wet vac. My hair is getting bushy and I figured, since I'm going to have to spend some money anyway, why not spend it on something that will pay for itself. Hopefully it works okay. You set if for two inches, turn everything on, and it sucks your hair into a tube and cuts it. All the trimmings go into the vacuum.
Our bed sprung a flat! So we sprung for another Coleman inflatable bed.
Inflatable furniture is kind of nice.
It's cheap to replace, and you always have new furniture!!! Nobody will ever complain about your old couch. You can even keep replacements in your closet. I'm hoping someday someone will invent an inflatable house that fits in a backpack!

03/12/2008 21:00:25jim The big hole in my dash is handy
Don't need no stereo. I can fill that hole with snacks! It could even hold a night bag.
I was surprised how easy it is to break into an F150.
The thief must have taken a screwdriver, placed it in the key slot, punched in the door lock and given it a twist.
The door lock is just barely held in place, so its easy to punch inward. Once the lock is loose, all it needs is to be rotated.
I'm just grateful he didn't rip the wires out. He was careful enough to unclip the wires from the stereo, and to remove the moldings without breaking anything.
My locks needed fixing anyway.
Ford's power lock actuators (the things that electronically unlock the doors) go bad in Vegas heat.
When they go bad, you can't use the remote to unlock your doors.
They will fix them for $400, and they'll go bad again, and again.
And you'll end up living in a cardboard box howling at the moon.
I got two actuators today for my door locks.
The idea was to get the remotes working, then I don't need my busted key lock fixed (which could be very expensive if Ford did the work). It took 1.5 hours to do the driver side door. Gosh, they make it. You need fingers 5 inches long!
But now that I know how to do it and the tools are already down there, the passenger door actuator should go much quicker.
Anyway...it was a productive night, and now I can drive around with a little confidence.
What I liked about Ford's improvements
Ford used to have these clips that would break whenever you took off a door panel. No more...the panel has one screw, and simply unhooks.
I replace the hard drive in my laptop last weekend.
Actually, its the laptop the SAE used to have. Becky was using mine. My hard drive croaked. I got a new laptop, then fixed my laptop, and gosh, I'm getting more confusing the more I babble!
