The flag pins only have 50 stars and this is clearly not fair and discriminatory to the other 7-10 states that don't get a star.
When I do have time to write, like after work, my mind has been distracted by work-stuff all day and I can't remember the cool stuff I was going to write about. Until just before bed time,-then I am too tired.
Rinse and repeat.
PS. This is not one of the cool subjects I refer to above.
I didn't get off from work until 8:00 last night so there was little consideration of fixing it then. Today I am off, so today's script writes itself.
The way garage doors work, there are two cables which connect between the bottom corners of the door and springs. The idea is for the spring to counter some of the door's weight. What happened to our door was that one of the cables broke right at the spot where it connects to the bottom of the door. What I needed to do was make a new loop at the end and secure it somehow.
What I did was take a couple of square inches of sheet metal (flashing) and wrap it around the new loop. Then I squished and crimped the metal with pliers. So far it works--time will tell if it is a durable repair.
Okay, we all know that the most commonly used letter is "E", what do you think is the second most common letter?
The girls shot out guesses;
Finally, Dahlia shot out, "T"? Yes!
"That's Not True"!
All at once it came to me! Her tags, two of the three at least, are made of aluminum. This metal gives off a blackish oxide, so that is probably the culprit.
Her three tags are: One we got with her name and our phone #. Two, her rabies vaccination tag and three is the dog license. Interestingly, only the town license is made of high quality brass.
The problem is that today is also rainy, probably even more so than yesterday and I am sick of cooking but don't want to do anything outside.
Just watch. Monday--when I am stuck inside of an office building, it will be sunny and perfect...
Update: Here it is Sunday evening and the sun, absent the whole weekend, is putting in an appearance.
