    Skippy checking in for Number 10 Mac!

    Thanks for the beautiful Rainbow.

    Been doing what else?????? Working on the deck. I'm sure folks are tiring of my marathon project. LOL! Starting on the pergola tomorrow. The deck boards are done to the tune of almost 2700 deck screws! Man, that got old. Minor trim work left there on the edges...... getting closer but lots of little stuff to do. I am actually enjoying my project and it is turning out well. If I would have hired someone I know they would have just Pi$$ed me off with some sloppy work somewhere. Ya want something done right nowadays ya gotta do it yourself it seems.

    Ramble on folks!

    Howdy Ramblers! Back home again and I sure have been missing y'all.

    Mac, thanks for the poem. You're a classy guy!

    Skipeye, sounds like you're coming right along. Great job.

    Countyhart, go get a biggun!

    Ya know, I was sitting and talking to my mom yesterday (after I cooked her a fish dinner!:wink:) and was telling her about y'all. She looked at me and said:

    "I thought you said you didn't like soap operas?"

    Guess I'm busted! If I haven't said it before, y'all have a Merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Year!

    How many loads does it take for a 70 yd pour? Sounds like a LOT of concrete. I don't know too much about concrete......one of my weak areas.

    Darryl,Our trucks will hold 10 yds comfortably,So that would be 7 loads,The best part is it will be pumped,I love dumpin my load fast and gettin another,Might be unloading my mixer for all of 15 minets for 10 yds.

    if my math is correct, 70 yards should pour 5,670 sq, feet at 4" thick. You concrete drivers certainly make the difference in a good job or a botched up job. Livin in the mountains and doing construction, i've seen them pour where there ain't NO WAY i'm backin a load down the hill. My favorite driver in this area is "Lying Larry" he's full of chit as a xmas turkey but can flat drive and operate a truck. You should get us some pics of your work sometime Richard, i'm sure you've been in some tite spots yourself.

    Mac,
    Thanks for the beautiful rainbow. Love to see them.
    Carry the torch well, and let's hope OPJ can find it when he gets back. :wink:

    Dan,
    Congratulations on the beautiful grandson. What's his name?

    Well it was warm here most of the week, with rain, now it's gonna snow. :roll_eyes:

    Laura,
    Sounds like you have everything under control and doing well. That's great news! Love and hugs to you.

    Skipeye,
    Glad you are feeling better and the deck looks great!

    PB,
    When you quit smoking, just remember you may be worse than us women in men-o-pause :smile2::tounge_out: Hope Nancy has some back up plan for putting up with ya'........:wink:

    OPJ,
    Were you just traveling in FL? I heard that some parts had snow today. :smile2:

    BG,
    Still got the new car smell? Or have you slimed it up already?

    Boots,
    I enjoy your philosophical view of life. It's much like mine........guess we are both cynics, huh?

    Deb,
    Hope your Mom is doing well.

    Richard,
    You ever wonder how much concrete you have hauled over the years?
    Or how many miles you have driven? Just a thought, I had.

    Will,
    I love your new signature!

    Well I know there are more I wanted to say hello to, like Dallas, Kenny, Johnny, JimmyJohnny, OhNo, JD, Baitchunker, PoisonPits,etc. but my old mind is about had it for the night. Oh yeah, good to see the Barse back! Thanks for the laugh.

    And glad to see that Dayton joined the thread.:cool2:

    Take care :go:

    Love the rainbow Mac, thanks for sharing.

    Zeb, that baby looks like a keeper to me!

    Richard, what do you do for those hands or do you just use them to sand the splinters of the banisters later?

    It's been raining here all day. A good soaking rain. Glad to have it.

    Not much to ramble about tonight..really.

    But.. just a thought.

    How many of you shampoo, rinse and repeat? Why are we supposed to repeat? Do you repeat when you wash your clothes, soap down the rest of ya? What exactly is the point in that?
