Very cool! We have had a big problem around here for the past couple of years with people stealing copper and bronze to sell for scrap. They have hit the cemeteries, constructions sites, churches, parks, etc. I think it sucks.
We have the same problem here. That trellis would last about 1 night in my backyard.

Heck, they're even stealing whole school buses here.

Hate to break it to you, sweetheart, but Christie is a liberal, and a blowhard, and a fat POS. The Republican party needs to dump that deuchetatd.

No, you flatten the ends. Then use tin snips to make them pointy and then curl them in a spiral to make them ornamental.
My boat, lol. I haven't worked on that in some time. I
"hope" to finish that before it gets too hot, this year.
I have to finish cutting these huge globs of glue that secure the top to the stringers in the bottom. They are really hard to reach. Then I think I will be ready to lift the top (after I remove everything that can be removed from the top. I'm not sure how I will lift the thing. I'd like to use pneumatic jacks, but I don't know where to get those from. Then I need to put it all back together.
It's a big job ... way bigger than I thought it would be. I hope to get to that in May, because once it gets to June and July its so hot that I don't really want to work on it ... I've tried, but it's not fun. The past two seasons I've been busy with landscaping in the spring and haven't gotten as far along as I'd like on my boat.
I need to re-carpet it too.

A Liberal Republican ! Heavens! The tent is not big enough to hold one of "those".

And that, my Dog, is why the Republicans keep losing elections.

For the price, its almost worth it. I was going to suggest renting an engine pull. You could lift/chock the bow, then do the same for the stern

No, republicans keep losing elections because of hordes of illegal voters and missinformation tactics of liberals to uninformed voters who think gay marriage is the biggest, most important issue facing this country.

I dreamed about my cats, which is always stressful because it always involves trying to contain them from getting out, or catch them b/c they got out. In this dream, I found a dryer full of warm clothes, so I put Mia in there for safe keeping (she loves warm laundry -- a closed dryer, probably not so much).

When I had guinea pigs, I would have that dream. Like, there was a fire or something and I had to hold them all at once. I had 5 at one point.

Last night was the best night of sleep I've had in a while. My Vegas dream also had an appearance by this girl I knew in junior high (we weren't even friends) and me, running down the strip singing (rapping?) "It's Tricky" by Run DMC. Then J and I had a farmhouse that we were trying to rehab, but we had no money. Or practical knowledge on how to do it ourselves.

Weekend plans:

Tonight: just found out this morning that I'm my own tonight. Prolly watch a movie...

Sat: Swimming lessons and then shopping/errands. We just found out our favorite neighborhood toy store lost their lease and will be closing in June and everything must go. I can see us going every weekend until then, looking for a really good deal. Both girls cried when I told them the news; so pitiful.

And Dickie thinks he's going to golf. He golfing buddy's wife is just about to have their first baby, so he feels like this is he last chance. It's predicted to be 38 degrees and maybe snow. I think they are total fools for even attempting this and I will have no sympathy for cold fingers and toes.

Sun: Lord, I hope the girls go to church. Palm Sunday is usually fun so maybe that will persuade them to go. Then more spring cleaning and egg dying! Going to try something different this year and use Kool-Aid mix instead of the damn Paas thingys. We'll see how it goes...

As if this is just a liberal tactic.

I could be wrong, but didn't the gay marriage issue first pic up real steam when we were going into iraq? Wasn't it the REPUBLICANS who started getting state amendments on the ballot to ban gay marriage? Shell game of look over here not over at the Iraq invasion?

Weekend plans:

First, my sister now has an ID! Took her to DMV yesterday and she got her DL renewed. It was set to expire on Sunday, so we got that in RIGHT under the wire. And now, stupid DMV just raised the cost to $45.00 freaking dollars. Really? Douchebags. For reference...they were $20.00 <sigh>

Today: Taking them shopping. They had nothing, and I do mean nothing. A backpack between them. I just finished folding their laundry and each and every single article of clothing is either full of holes or otherwise ruined. I bought them shampoo, body wash, toothpaste (and brushes) and stuff yesterday, but they need other stuff, not the least of which is clothes, so there goes my new laptop. <sigh> Also going to see about my nephew getting registered in school and about petitioning the court to re-open her divorce petition from a few years ago. Apparently you can do that.

Tomorrow: Just letting everyone rest and feel safe for a while. She's not receptive to rehab...yet, but she is receptive to the shelter (the one with all of the resources) that I want her to go to, so I'm thinking of trying to get her in there on Monday. She's also amenable to counseling, so there's positive starts happening.

Sunday: Taking my nephew (ahem) to church. Quit looking at me like that. He asked if I would take him, so I am. <shrug>
