If I only need a tablespoon of tomato paste for a recipe, the rest of the can is frozen into cubes for later.

Now, returning to our regular program.

Rod, I do like that idea. Wished you had shown that when I had my mill/drill.

I know you did not have your M/D back in the 80s.;-)

Those titles do conjure up some interesting mental pics.

I would be remiss if I failed to mention that dubby is indeed a man of his word.

1. That statement from a week or so back was prompted by this picture in which I inadvertently showed that one of the corner posts from the shelving unit was still blocking the tv screen because when we hurriedly installed it over a year ago we failed to prop it up high enough to clear.

We had talked about how much to raise it a month or so back but ... there it was.
And he noticed it.

2. So sure enough, along about Thursday last here came dubby & Coleman.
He wisely also brough Lily and she played frisbee with Wilson the entire time they were here. I don't know if that was the result of a command or of a bribe or if she actually wanted to do that.

3. However it went down, Wilson stayed out of the way and the Christmas 2012 television is finally at a proper height.

Thank you, dubby
Thank you, Coleman
Thank you, Lily

Lol, well... Wilson is still the only dog that they've ever known to fetch--and bring back the toy! It's a treat for sure.


I've been blessed with happy, healthy, and helpful kiddos. I'm glad I get to show them off occasionally

Well, there's some that say that it's me & some that say that it's Uncle Si.
I don't argue with them either way but if they want to pay me five dollars for his autograph, that's fine too.

By the way, why did you ignore my questions in your Frankendrill oiler thread?
