Metric, US Standard, it doesn't matter. It won't work because it's obviously upside down. Either that or the picture was taken in China.

They also have metric chisels if you need them.

I won’t put up with it at work. We have no metric on our tape measures in the shop.

Even though we’re supposed to.

Now heres an opportunity to really alienate myself... I cut my technician teeth on either metric or imperial and regard the other as nonsensical yet use it exclusively. For kicks, which is older?

Mostly just sat on the couch watching TV, and the weather. We got some stiff breezes and a few rain squalls from hurricane Dorian where I am. I did get the dishwasher fixed this afternoon, though. Nice and quiet again.

Mystery solved.



Close personal friend who gave me the background sign has her gut cut open until Monday and is on life support, night trucker brother looks to have busted his throttle foot moving 3/4 ton of carts on a ramp. Boyoboy, another deluge of grim possibilities.

Hey but the boss is feeding us at his house tomorrow afternoon. Woohoo!

Off to fix my broke junk more five minuteses. Murmur, grumble, (Friday night) expletive deleted. FYI for them who look... I didn't take one pic at work. Made progress but it looks about the same. Probably should have made running board brackets instead of gas flap.

The past 2 days has been a non-stop flurry of getting the current house ready for professional pics for the MLS listing. This guy wanted the place to look like a model home that no on has ever lived in ! NOTHING personal on any counters, no clothes visible, no rugs on the floors, bare, basic furniture...sheesh, what a pain in the butt. That's over now, along with drone footage. I scrambled for almost 2 hours to clean and paint the roof vents for the drone. They were looking very faded and had surface rust...not what I wanted in a video. There are 10 vents up there too..
Today is the big day to move half of the furniture to the new place. The realtor wants us to leave some here, as staging, for open houses and visitation appointments.
The For Sale sign went up in the front yard yesterday too, so I guess it's pretty much official...the place is for sale. Man this feels strange. I'm betting Brian can relate.

When I sold my place in May My agent was the same way. Nothing personal on the walls she wanted some pieces of furniture left about and everything just as spiffy as can be. Personally I thought it was a lot of extra nothing but I was sorely mistaken. The details I did I think helped sell the house as fast as it did. (sold in 9 days) Oh something I thought was strange was the simple fact to make sure every single light bulb worked.

Went we went looking at houses after the property fiasco I started noticing little details in the houses we viewed. Those little things go a long way to making a place desirable.. Because I listened to my agent I got more out of my house than I had ever dreamed. That was the reason I could buy this place outright and no longer have a mortgage. Ahhhh Real Estate what a bunch of huey muey...

I just saw this photo of a prototype Nash pickup, looks like my chopped and sectioned Chevy AD! I must be channeling some Nash designer!
