I used to be away from home for months at a time. The best greeting is the dog greeting when you get home.I just got back from a short vacation and when I picked my dog up he was so enthusiastic it warmed my heart! He is literally glued to me right now. There’s not much better than the love of a good dog
I'd keep all usable materials. Everything will continue to get worse for many years. There will soon be a day when you won't be able to go to a store and buy everything you want or need.I’m working on cleaning and organizing my enclosed pole barn/shop area. It’s 4 bays of woodworking tools and supplies and electrical supplies. About three feet deep mostly… when I was working long hours each week it just became a catch all for stuff. Now that I’m retired I have no excuse not to get it in shape. I’ve always enjoyed making furniture and antique replicas but the shop is such a over stuffed mess I haven’t been able to for a long while now. I’ll sell some stuff on Craigslist, haul some to goodwill, and haul some to the landfill. I’m seriously over being a pack rat now. My new motto is simplify and don’t bring anything home until I’ve gotten rid of three first!
There was a time unions were needed. Some companies were making kids work 15 hour days and such. But those days are long gone. Unions have outlived their usefulnessTypical union BS. They want more money and more benefits. I hope JD breaks the union. I've got no use for union cry babies.
