Even tho I CAN sing, that's not a pleasant "Visual" at all - - - trust me yawn

I guess, in a sadistic sort of way, I am glad that I got the job done with a certain amount of success but I don't ever ever ever plan on tackling anything like that again !  Just NOT MY THING - weirdface

LOL, thanks, just now got the shower curtains up and had my first HOT SHOWER (I hate taking regular baths) since in over two weeks.  My wife said that my singing reminded her of someone skinning a live cat - - - but I did enjoy turning into a red lobster color for a change.

as Charlie Pride sings in his classic - - "Life was simple and good back then"

hell, I didn't know that we were poor until I was grown and married idea

  Yeah  I grew up on a small farm, took a bath once a week in a tub whether I needed it or not,, got my face washed with the dish rag between baths, had the out house too,, I hated gettin up on a cold morning needin to go to the outhouse, thinking about those big ole spiders that were crawling around under your butt,, just waiting to strike, [ the imagination is strange thing for a kid]
My dad also finally finished up the bathroom in our house that seems like took him forever to build,, He dug a pit for the septic tank and lines   but my friends and I pretty much filled it in  playing with our new wind up spring bull dozers and road equipment,, That was in the 40's

Those were the good ole days, never to be seen or enjoyed again,,,smile
