    What a winter

    Man..... I know some definitely have it worse than I do, but what a year.....

    New years eve 1030 at night, -11 the furnace goes out.....Two weeks later, the water heater goes out. Two months later the oven goes out... Today... After being out of town for the big blizzard for work, I come home to move snow and the transmission on the Dodge goes out while I am butt deep in snow......

    Then the mail comes in Workers Comp is playing stupid with me......

    I guess God says I have enough guns this year......

    Sorry to hear that Bob. Well, look on the bright side; you now have nowhere to go but up.
    I'm on disability myself. My injury didn't happen at work so no Workman's Comp. for me. Thankfully, I got disability ins. last Summer so I'm all set financially. The boredom is what I've been fighting.

    Bad Bob, being the tough hombre that you are, I know you will overcome all this adversity!

    I've had to wear long pants on three occasions this winter. Any worse and I'm moving to Central America.

    Well I ordered shop manuals and a premium HD rebuild kit. I am sick of paying top dollar for factory quality (sub-standard) parts build. I can drop the tranny myself in about 2 hrs. I figure I can save myself about $2K. I have rebuilt everything else on that beast and a 727 is not overly complicated.

    Bad Bob, just so you don't feel like the Lone Ranger, we have a roof leak this winter, the first in after 5 years of living in what is a 2005 built house that appeared to be in perfect condition when we purchased it. The leak appears to be coming from the flashing near one of our dormer windows in our very high ceiling. Roofers are supposed to be here Monday.
