Actually I prefer the metal patches for strength. The mesh patches work better for fixing busted window panes since they don't block as much light :cool:

"D" is for "Demo" as well as for "Dynamite"- better for "Doors" than the letter "A" :rolleyes:

Dj1 told me that the last house Spruce built (this one: https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fc2.staticflickr.com%2F4%2F3174%2F2820543664_29dfe87ba3_z.jpg%3Fzz%3D1&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.flickr.com%2Fphotos%2Fladytracy%2F2820543664&docid=QNHZZ9_FKodt9M&tbnid=Ye_4b0VMrglzxM%3A&w=375&h=500&bih=634&biw=1366&ved=0ahUKEwi5t_OpruPNAhVsxoMKHYG2DTgQMwhnKCYwJg&iact=mrc&uact=8 ) had been eaten up by termites, which had "gone straight through to the second floor". I said I knew that wasn't true because Spruce ha never built anything straight in his life!

I have two comebacks for that, Ed poured the foundation, and as we all know, if the foundation isn't right, it's going to affect everything else along the way.:p

And:

There was a crooked little architect who designed a crooked little house for crooked little man . . . :p

If it makes you feel any better, DJ finally got back with the paint we needed to finish the job!

It wasn't my fault, The stupid guy at HD, who mixed the paints, forgot to put the lid tight, and I saw it, but I didn't want to say anything to insult him or to be politically incorrect.

Doesn't matter, that's the wrong color anyway. Go back and have them add a pull of green to it and hurry- Spruce is getting fidgety waiting on his paint and he's making me nervous the way he's waving his paint gun around :rolleyes:
