Today’s crappy weather day wood project is cutting up pieces to construct a solitary bee 🐝 and insect condominium. Pieces are cut up, some decorative angles cut, roof boards cut. I’ll get these all fastened together, then drill the condo holes in each of the floors. Similar “houses” online cost $40.00 !

Some progress pix.

This one is for Maggie 😁 this poor guy in a semi made a big truck mistake. I live in a neighborhood with one-way streets that go back and forth. It's a maze I haven't figured out yet! That's the only thing that woke me up today. My brother and I watched him get through it but he wasn't happy. I do have to say he's a great driver with the mess he got himself out of 😂.

Oh darn! I should have but I was flabbergasted. It was a big truck 🤣 David and I couldn't move. We were talking back and forth. Saying things like poor guy. Do you think he'll manage? What's he trying now? Woke me up watching it. It was the first time I felt awake all day.😁

Got a good life hack! If you own a jigsaw that has a speed adjustment knob works the best so you can just hold the trigger down without trying to control the speed with trigger pressure. Works like a $200 theragun with $25 kit from Amazon for jigsaw I already have. View attachment 318626

oh yea..... I have one of those..
That’s the thing in the toilet tank that flushes the water down.. right? 🤔😌

Welcome home :)

You can ask... you probably won’t get a sensible answer :D

We are currently on a virtual vacation down under. There’s been a lot of cold weather. Maggie’s been pranked and it probably out doing donuts in her car in the snow. Opo and Layla aren’t doing much at all. Cathie’s son had to have a stent but is recovering well and Heather’s daughter Jess is also doing well
Oh gee, we are better than General Hospital lol

Most truck drivers really deserve respect as there is a whole mess of stuff involved in truckin that is not the physical fact of driving a monster fully loaded weighing over 80 thousand pounds. You got cars impatient because we start off so slow, cars cut in front at the light, never knowing that on a clear day with dry pavement in takes a big truckthe lenght of a football field, 100 yards to panic stop that truck. Don't ever jam in front of a big truck stopping at a light, you are taking away needed feet for the truck to stop. I need to go ***** about FedEx now

I know. I can't believe he got out of our neighborhood!!!? That was a big truck lost on one way streets that are one way because they're not wide enough for two lanes. All I can say is that was a good driver 🤠

I sorta got in a situation that was close to that, only when I finally got out and was on a good road cars kept honking and pointing at me...I was pulling 11 feet of chain link fence hooked on my trailer...lol

Yea we were watching and glad for him that the truck that was usually sitting parked on the street wasn't there today. He actually managed to turn the corner and get the heck outta dodge. Otherwise he would have had to back up several streets and still find a way out of this mess. I've lived here since 2007 and never dreamed I'd see a tractor trailer on this road but I did today.😏

No, in all seriousness, Oregon is kind of a backwards state, so early on I figured how to make it thru the outages without too much stress...thanks for worrying about me tho...
