Msloke you are so clever, well done I say
, it's good to see a woman who can do for herself, sometimes it is the only way to get things done the way we want, I too love nothing more than to tackle a project like that then sit back and see what I have achieved, just get out there and do it. that's my motto I have to say I was always out with my brothers tinkering with the car engines and getting covered in grease and loving it. My mother used to say she had 3 boys instead of 2 and 1 girl, and often tried to get me into the girly things but that wasn't me at all.

:D I enjoy it too, kinda fun to plan it out and see it completed, plus I have a warped sense of humor.  My garden toolshed I built looks like an outhouse, complete with the crescent moon in the door and the "seat" inside, which actually is a storage bin with a lift up lid.  I prefer the unusual to the ordinary.  :D 

Guess we can keep this up until Joe has another update on the gate.

Oh you are too funny, but I do love your imagination, and just think who would think of breaking into an outhouse to steal your tools etc. I would say you are very clever indeed, my kind of thinking....

Sometimes I wish I were more domestic....the grass is greener on the other side thing. 
  I did attempt to bake bread from scratch once, was truly like an episode of I Love Lucy....won't make that mistake again. 
  But oh well, as long as cordless phone battery doesn't go dead, I won't starve. 



I agree with you, but I'd go a step further.  I think they should teach that stuff in school.  Just kinda like a "Life 101" class for living on your own.  I remember when I was in school, girls weren't allowed to take shop class so I refused to take home ec.....that'd show 'em (which explains my domestic inadequacies. 
).

Msloke you and I sound so alike in many ways, when I was at school I loved science and actally topped the school in my first year of high school. Well my mother didn't think it was lady like to be good at things like that so she made me take the courses that included Office work etc much to my discust, so I rebelled an didn't apply myself at all, I hated bookkeeping and shorthand etc. it just wasn't me, although I will say I do enjoy cooking and my hubby just loves his meals so I must be doing that part right.
The irony of it all thought is that my chosen occupation when I was working was just that very thing I hated the most, office work and receptionist for a large company with over 300 phones to take care of, and I actually loved the job and did quite well as I was told by my boss.

:lol: Oh I know all about that, I have a zipper on my coat that keeps popping when I bend down to pick Scooby up and hubby says we are going to get that fixed once and for all and I say I can just fix it by doing just what you did Msloke and all is well again. The trouble is the coat is longish and when I bend if I happen to squat a bit that is when it busts open but other than that it still works fine.
I will say I am hopeless also with maps and directions though, and you would soon be calling me "wrong way" too

Since being here in the US I have become worse, and the awful thing is when we went back home for a trip to see the kids I had a hard time finding my way around Adelaide and I grew up there, so go figure that one out
Sometimes I wonder how I ever got to work and home again because if I had to take a different route due to road construction I would be lost without a doubt.

My brothers used to tell me I wouldn't be able to find my way out of a paper bag

no, not a typo, just a saying amongst some of us ******** 
if you think about it, alot of times you are trying to "figure" something out you'll notice your hands are almost always involved (fingered) , somehow, i know it may not make sense  :lol:

Well I must humbly apologize Joe, I had no idea you were a *******, and I surely must be excused as I am an Aussie and not up to scratch with the ******* lingo.... :lol:

Well funnily enough Joe, if you had said something like that in Australia you would have got a lot worse if you were actually in Aust. trust me on that....
