Well yesterday I got home from a 5 day vac. (well needed) to find that my yard has been ripped up!! So dirt has FINALLY been moved to start the backfill & leveling for my garage/shop. Its going to take 10 tri-axle loads for dirt to level where the garage is getting build (240 tons of dirt).

The worst part is that my nieghbor is a contractor (all the equipment is sitting there) and he can't even give me a good quote. I have a guy driving about 30 mins to come do the work for me (he lives in a cheaper area and doesn't charge as much).

Old house had a 25% slope driveway. Talk about a bitch of a driveway! Try backing down a carhauler (loaded) or a tri-axle of logs (24 tons) down that!

I'm just happy, this is one step closer to my garage!

Just got a call from my ex and her new guy asking me to walk them though how to install a ceiling fan..... Hung up on her when she put him on the phone. A few minutes later I get a text asking about the sawzall I left down there (broken clutch on it). Long story short, instead of using a hole saw to go through a plaster and lathe ceiling they tried to use a broken sawzall with hilarious results! That made my day!

For me, today rules cuz after 3 years of asking for a trainee at work, Jay started today, and I put him through the ringer lol. Told him it will take a few years to teach him all my tricks, but if he listens and takes his time for quailty's sake he'll be almost as good a plate maker as me. I'm 56 years old, and just as soon as social security allows, I am retiring. So I'm looking at less than 6 years. Been working there as a platemaker, negative assembler, and quality control for hhhmmm, 19 years, 3 months.

Well, we finally got the last of my wife's test results back. I've been for about a 5 months since a couple of her last tests came back with a few suspicious results. Lat round of tests were done the week before Mike meet, which had me kinda off kilter and kinda disinterested in working that weekend. Well, all Labs negative, PET negative, mammogram negative and CT negative! That makes it three shaky years cancer free since her recurrence, and 5 1/2 since she was diagnosed the first time.

Cosmic Justice!!

I remember when my EX (that I caught messing around 3 months before our wedding ) called me once that the new boyfriend did a tune up on my mustang
(her's I put 18K into and had the title made out to us should've made it read AND instead of OR )
and couldnt get it to run right, I laughed my as off told her to either tow it to my shop or it's 300 for me to come fix it.
It sat at her appartment for 2 weeks and they had it towed her step father got me and we went and got it out of impound, he kept the body and I kept my drivetrain and sound system and we killed a case of beer listening to her scream at her mother for it all..
COSMIC JUSTICE!

And your yard could probably take another 16! When we regraded my back yard about 12 years ago we hauled 30 loads in a pretty good sized dual axle dump and I would have done 30 more t obring the yard at least equal to the properties on both sides of me but the site ran out of dirt to haul.

Maybe now that my wife got a clean bill of health I can un-clench a bit and start on my garage. I was really sweatin it again. The excavation for the foundation should be all the fill I'll need.

Hey John congrats on the good news of negative tests. I've had several good friends go through all the crap involved in beating cancer and it ain't easy. I'm sure its a great sigh of releif throughout your family and circle of friends.
