    [​IMG]I could have been sitting at the computer hanging with you fine people as well as working on the song I've been writing. But NNNOOOOO, I promised Mrs, Believer that I would work on the deck sometime this summer [emoji1787]. I figured today would be a good day for it since I am on a week vacation. She wanted to take 12 inches off of tge deck to make a better path between it and the fence. Though she wanted to pay someone else to do it. That's where I said yeah, tgat ain't happening. I ain't paying someone a couple grand to do something I can in two days completely for free. The best part, I didn't spend a dime out of pocket!!!

    The only hrlp I had was when my neighbor came over and helped me balance the railing so it wouldn't fall on me as I pulled the last couple bolts.
    Then I took the old lights and ceiling fan that I replaced on Saturday to Habitat for Humanity ReStore and donated them.
    The final thing to do for the day was to replace 1 badly warped picket in the fence.
    Now, I am too tired to even think about hooking up a [emoji450].
    I know it needs stained but next year it will be getting new flooring anyway.

    The toughest part had nothing to do with the work. It wS that yesterday I stepped on a piece of wood that popped out of a knot in the wood yesterday and ripped two holes on my heel. I had to walk on my toes all day.

    Yeah, it felt really good to get a day's worth of some good old fashioned COVID killing Vitamin D.[emoji1]

    It's not the size of the deck, it's how you use it that counts...just saying

    I don't miss having a woman who finds stuff to fill my days....
    I would have just dug a trench and paved it so she could walk under it without hitting her head.

    Congratulations! My parents were married today in 1972. Still together. I just called them and wished them happy 48th today.
    Mrs. Believer and I will be having our 7th on 7/7.

    You know, pointy guitars are not my style at all, but that thing really looks cool.

    Nice job on the deck.:thumb:
