Monday morning picture thread....

Yeah, let's see how long this will last....


Got my head screwed on straight after vacation with the family and a marriage.

Major FUBAR on my part. Had pulled my lines off of the incorrect plane, and made a nice crooked floor. Whoops. Time to rip up 5 hours of work and start the math problem over.

Gah - BTDT with a floor I did at my wife's uncle's house.

My Monday - I spent 12 hours replacing the hydraulic clutch on a 1967 A-H Sprite on Saturday. Got it all done, and this morning found the water pump is now leaking.

Marriage???

Replacing the carpet in my home office with prefinished oak was last Thanksgiving weekend project;








As for Mondays, I'm lucky if I'm even capable of taking a picture on Monday mornings, let alone be aware of anything.

Ahhhh shit.....I just left there!!!! Floating floor....I really like my cork floors. Nice on Slab....just have to mind the fluids and put a top coat after install. But any floater will do.....lots of new and tough floating floor systems out there. Not a fan of bamboo, and try to get something that has an aluminum oxide coating on it.

Once you get the radiator out of its diabolical mounting position, swapping the pump won't be too bad. I try not to work on the car too often (it's actually my mom's!). British engineering is . . . unique. Amazing they got the Spitfires to actually fly in WWII.

Holy understated announcement Jenna! Congratulations! And yeah, about friggin' time!

Mrs. K and I just celebrated #26 by taking our older son out for his 21st birthday.

I can work a hammer!

Always up for some Twains ... have an idea when it would work for you? The Dobber needs some exercise.
