I thought all hunters carried fire arms, just in case..
And in Georgia it's for the damn snakes:o
Here's your Fact of the day, it is against the law to shoot a black bear in Texas with fines up to $10,000, possible jail time, and loss of hunting license.
That being said, if that were me in that exact situation and I had never encountered a bear before in my life... As soon as he started coming up that tree, he would've been met with a very loud BANG along with a very high pitched scream as I peed all over myself unloading my pistol.
Self defense, is self defense in that scenario! He presented a threat to my life, I had nowhere to go, so I stopped the threat. If you had the video to document it, I don't think many people would say you would've been in the wrong by protecting yourself. Now if you wouldn't have caught it all on tape, like I said earlier... Nobody would have believed the story from the get go and they'd prolly slap cuffs on you and you would have to defend yourself down to the nitty gritty.... ESPECIALLY NOWADAYS with all this gun control nonsense... Let's not get started on THAT issue geeeeeezzzz
First time DIY tile - or more specifically grout. "This shouldn't that bad..."
What a slow, painstaking, friggin mess!
Don't know WTF I was thinking. 3+ hours of grouting and less than half done. Plus another hour+ of cleanup. Should have known to not start this phase in the evening or mix the grout all at once. (have a nice bucket of light tan concrete now :mad:)
Maybe the smaller tiles and intricate design wasn't such a good idea for a first try.
I don't know. I think it looks pretty good. And you have that nice bucket of tan ballast now too. :o
agreed. looks good. my only advice would have been to cut the ropes on a 45 in the corners.
I have found when doing backsplashs, mix grout in a 1gal ice cream bucket and mix 1/2 full at a time. makes it easier to work.
you did a very nice job with the color palette :)
back on topic.. I need to dump some leaves at the dump and the lot is muddy. I don't want to get my feet dirty..
it's going to rain for the next few days :(
Throw down some visqueen to walk on and leave it there as a favor to the next guy.
Or just bag your shoes with a couple layers of Walmart bags and rubber bands. Remove when you hop back in.
easier to complain about it than fix the problem :)
besides I think I'm going to have to go again next week. dink across the street chose not to bag his but to use his high power blower and push all his leaves into the walking trail next door to him. wind blew a chunk of them across the street into my yard last night :(
Thanks and good idea in hindsight to miter those corners...
As for the leaves, if you have a dog, the landmines could mysteriously disappear from your yard one night and wind up in the neighbor's one morning... That wind can do some incredible things. http://l.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/mesg/emoticons7/19.gif
