    Good afternoon, Vagabonds.

    With the computers at the condo, I don’t get a chance to log on until we get here, so I’m late.

    The cabinets are all in place and look really good. They need a bit of tweaking – doors lined up, etc. – and they need the countertops. Fabricio was supposed to call about 10 to let us know when he would be here, but he hasn’t called yet. (It’s 12:30) We’re getting a little disgusted with this guy. He’s very talented, but he doesn’t call when he will be delayed. He finished early, so we got to go back to the apartment and spend time with Smokey. She’s been left alone an awful lot this past week or so.

    Today we built the two nightstands, and the set (nightstands and headboard) look really nice. I can’t wait to get the bed in there with them.

    We also stopped at Office Depot to buy the chair that Michael wanted, and it was on a clearance sale! They took another $70 off the sale price price. We ended up with a $300 chair for $150. We have run into some phenomenal deals in our purchases for this house.

    It’s 67 outside at 12:30 with a forecast high of 75. I don’t think it’s gonna get that warm.

    Everyone have a blessed day.

    True enough.

    I don’t remember pulling pranks like either of these, but my younger brother and I did not get along and tried to get each other in trouble at any opportunity. And we would both gloat about the success of the ruse, even if we got caught and punished too. I’m so glad we grew out of it. He’s one of my best friends now.

    You are correct about toothbrushes and toothpaste, but he would definitely have known what soap was.

    I’m with sfreader1, my younger brother and I were not friends. We fought every chance we got from the time he was old enough to hit back. But we would never have dreamed of pulling a prank like this, either one of them.

    Awful story. I’m praying you are well and happy.

    Good Sunday morning, Vagabonds.

    Still no cabinets installed. The parts they needed did not come in until after noon, so they postponed until today. I just got a call from the installer, and he’s making a quick stop at Home Depot for dishwasher hoses and will be here within the hour. Michael the skeptic says that means probably around noon. We’ll see. In the meantime I’m off to church.

    We got our new headboard put together yesterday and it looks really nice. I am getting tired of building furniture, though. Still 2 nightstands, 4 dining chairs and some cat furniture to go. We bought a tall cat tree, some “hang on the wall” type perches and a kitty bridge to go between the two high shelves in the hall.

    Today’s forecast is for 73. I’m happy with that.

    Everyone have a blessed day.

    I am reluctant to share the name, but the plant I worked in was in the aerospace industry, located in Riverside, CA. Their main facility was in Chula Vista, CA.

    Go ahead and leave the scale reading 5 pounds light. But don’t be shocked when you get to the doctor’s office and his reads 5 pounds higher than yours + clothes.
