gg steve, not anymore. Son's in Austin, TX, and his son isnow a marine stationed in WA state at a naval base. They're both coming here in Dec. for a week; so I want to make sure I can clear the drive if need be to go pick 'em up at Green airport in RI. They won't be here for Christmas, but it'll be great to see them.


If you do need help I'll drive down there. I wish I'd known Sunday, I could have helped you before the Pats game!

and ruin your tailgating !? NEVUH !! thanks anyway. I'll get it done either today or by tomorrow, hopefully.

As I said- my mentioning that my wife and I have problems was not meant to solicit sympathy or any such thing. While I do appreciate the offers to help I really just look for "how to" things. I'm not the handiest guy on the planet, but I try. My "condiition" is COPD. which while not completely disabling me just makes me have to stop and rest after the least bit of effort. No pain, so I'm lucky. I only mentioned it as part of bantering on here so that folks get to know me. I'm at the stage in life where working smarter sure beats working harder, lol ! LAZINESS IS THE MOTHER OF INVENTION, NOT NECESSITY ! :-)

My condolences, KennyP. I lost my older sister to it years ago.. I've been slacking off on exercising, but sterted up again a few weeks ago. I've noticed a little improvement. Not much, but i can come up from the basement a lot easier now.

It's tough watching someone who was very active slowly become a couch potato.

I hear ya ! Up until 4 or 5 yers ago I did some easy mountain biking, I enjoyed it immensely, and it helped me quite a bit. Some of my fondest memories are biking with our grandson. Had a car accident and broke 7 ribs. Got out of my routine and never got back. That's the main reason I started some exercising again. The good Lord willin, and the creek don't rise I hope to be back in the saddle by next Spring. One day at a time is how I live now. Well, one step, I guess you could say. lol !

Hey guys, I never meant to sound like I was trying to solicit actual physical help.


No, really!!! OT, if you need someone to hold your elbow and help you down the stairs, please ask. It's no problem. Some day we'll be 55 yo and need help, too.

I never took it that way. OT, don't let these folks get under your skin. I'm glad to have you posting here and want to see you doing more.

Careful whatcha wish for, KennyP . lol ! I DO have another dumb question. I tried using the drill / driver to screw those top blocks down, but ended up stripping the philips heads. # screw and 7 / 64" drill bit....... Is it just that I'm not pushing down hard enough, or should I make the pilot hole a little bigger ? I did two of the blocks by hand, and boy is that time consuming.
