Tall Cabinet

8:40 am:
Next comes the installation of the tall cabinet which goes against the wall opposite to the 9-drawer cabinet.

When I took the measurements for the tall cabinet, I failed to see that part of Box Van [A metal box] extended into the lower right of the tall cabinet's space!

I will have to remove that part of the tall cabinet before assembly.


In the pic above, I've placed the rear wall of the tall cabinet [A pegboard]
in front of the metal box so that may see what is going on.



11:00 am:
I have some things to do before beginning cabinet work this morning.

First thing is to exercise at 24-Hour Fitness. Then, do my laundry [I'm dead out of underwear].


11:32 am:
People that I encounter while walking relate to me in two ways.

#1. They stop walking and hold the door open for me to enter first.
When I look at myself in a mirror it is clear that I am an old guy. However, to myself, I do not appear to be a guy who needs help getting thru a door.

#2. They ask me, "Are you alright?"
When I reply with, "Why do you ask?" Most often, they stammer out a, "Oh, just asking". 

Some folks reply with a more forthright, "You seem to be about to fall down!"

Note: I do not have vertigo. But I have imbalance all the time. This is NOT a medically treatable thing for me.


11:04 pm:
Very often I have to work sooooo long to get a thing done!

The one overhead light in Box Van is turned on by a small toggle action switch. This evening when I went to use that switch I found one leg of the connection just dangling.

In order to repair that connection, I needed a 20 gauge forked connector. I couldn't find it! I looked and looked for more than 30-minutes until the little box of these connectors appeared.

Then I could not find my crimping tool! That took a long time to locate too. And when I finally found the crimping tool, the 20 gauge connectors had disappeared once more!

Don't you just hate it when stuff like this happens to you? šŸ˜«

      Do you open doors for those persons who appear older than you? If not, why not?

    3. Bill Barrett,

      I asked you:
      "Do you open doors for those persons who appear older than you? If not, why not?"

      In your reply comment, did you answer my question. No! You did not answer!

      Apparently you do not understand English very well!

  3. People you encounter...

    Why does it bother you when people treat you kindly?

    Better they say, “get out of my way you old fart!”?

    1. EdD,

      Did I Blog that I was bothered? I do not believe that I did, EdD. How about going back and reading my Blog post again?

      Apparently when you read it before, you DID NOT comprehend what I wrote.

  4. out of underwear,,, didn't the military teach you the tricks of turning your underwear around,,,
    You could always wear your underwear under your bathing suit when you go to the spa those bubbles will make it feel like you're in a washing machine
    Or you could save yourself a lot of soap if you didn't wear any,
    But that's probably why they hold the door open for you they just making sure you still have your underwear on
    Have a great holiday big guy

  5. George! That was a terribly rude and confrontational response you made to Bill Barrett. I am embarrassed for you. You owe him an apology and need to think a bit about others rather than yourself.

    1. Hotel,

      How dare you judge me!

      And then come here on my own website and tell me how I should behave?

      George

    2. I second that Hotel. 100%. Response esp. Of "don't understand English very well" was over the top, even for a sometimes crotchety old man like George.

    3. MR,

      You and Hotel California mess around here on my Blog in your incognito identities. And then wax judgmental on me.

      Why don't you tell me who you really are? So that I can come on your websites and find out all about you?

      George

    4. George, I never mess around on your Blog. I have been following you on a daily basis for almost 15 years. Hotel California has been our Internet name since 2004. We have visited you and paid for your lunch in Calistoga, California back when you didn't have so much money. We are Doug & Juanita. We both hold doors open for everyone who is behind us as we enter or leave a building. Neither of us would ever speak to someone they way you spoke to Bill Barrett. I understand that you are not a "people person", but it doesn't excuse such rude behavior to a person who meant absolutely no ill will against you.

    5. If George could find his bed last night, he got up on the wrong side of it this morning. Forgive him. :)

      ===

      George: Did you happen to notice that Bill is 4 years older than you and doesn't find too many older persons to open doors for? He was merely telling you the way he helps younger persons who need it.


      Not an answer to your specific question? Maybe.

      Topic drift is the nature of blogs. Happy Thanksgiving

  8. Well if you've got nothing to do today why don't you go down to the local Walmart and set up a 12 pack of soda bottles and go turkey bowling that seems to be the new fad on the East Coast
    maybe you could be the first in your Walmart grocery store.
    You may get the manager upset but I think Of a new fad you could start on the West Coast
    Heard of everything I'll bet you haven't heard of this,,, it's. Call turkey bowling
    Take a look,,,, maybe you could start a new fad on the West Coast

  10. I feel badly that you are not always walking well. I've had terrible problems walking, especially this year. However, I was told by a relative to try and take Aloe Vera Gel (not juice), and since I have, I've had less pain, and have been walking better, and bending my fingers better, also. Please e-mail me and I'll let you know about it. Blessings, Lynn
