G’day, GN; wonder what that swine found so alluring about teh reporter’s trousers.

Mac --

Thanks for adding to your “origin story” late yesterday; sorry your pallet system didn’t catch on. 🙁

The kids got power back yesterday afternoon in Orlando; still lots of people without here in GA. May take until Sunday for some of them. Ditto for removal of downed trees.

We sure were lucky here at CasaK.

Maaaaaaaaan…I’m mighty foggy this morning for a guy who got seven hours of sleep. Buh.

Hai, Mac!

We really did luck-out; other areas of Gwinnett Cty. were not so fortunate. (Mostly downed power lines and trees; a few of the latter fell on houses.)

Erma certainly packed a lot of energy; it’s kind of sobering it engulfed pretty much the entire state of Florida. Friends in Jasper (NW GA) probably won’t have power back until sometime tomorrow; said they’ve got multiple downed power lines and trees in their area.

At least we had a few days to get ready…unlike a quake. But thanks to BetterHalfK’s efforts, we’re reasonably well-prepared re food, water and other stuff in the event of a significantly worse disaster with zero notice.

Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Mac!

I’ve always admired people who could make things with their hands. When I worked in defense electronics I worked with a German draftsman who was also a tool and die maker. He was the go-to guy for test fixtures of any type. I’d spend 10 or 15 minutes talking with him about what I needed and what it was supposed to do, give him a sample part, and he’d come up with an idea and whip up a dimensioned drawing in nothing flat. Of course he wasn’t allowed to build anything -- union rules -- I had to take the drawings down to the machine shop for that.
