One Of Those Days!

Really? Early beds were made with a wooden frame. Ropes were tied across the frame in a criss-cross pattern. A Straw mattress was then put on top of the ropes. Over time the ropes stretched, causing the bed to sag. The owner would then tighten the ropes to get a better night’s sleep.  Hence the expression “SLEEP TIGHT”.

I worked in the shop trying to reassemble this power mitre saw… I simply wanted to change the blade and alas, I would not get it back together again! Finally after four 30 minutes attempts, I finally got it back together!  Next time, I am taking my phone and documenting the take-apart process STEP-BY-STEP!!!

Putting the saw guard back in place is a Chinese (Japanese) puzzle… Been at it for two hours!

We watched some NCIS before going to the GG Elks dinner dancing.  It was a disaster, for us, as they Elks were hosting a larger gathering of Elks so they had a buffet of lasagna and therefore we decided NOT to dine there.  Trying to keep weight off this massive frame is a full time battle!

The band was new and after four songs, we all departed.  The music was un-danceable and the singer was, well, HORRIBLE.  We were back home by 8:00 PM and watched a movie and then some NCIS before crashing!
