Broke some sort of record...

Went to the hardware store this morning...spent $9. As in just nine dollars.

That stuff kept me busy all day!

I figure usually I spend about $120 on "stuff" for every hour I work on the place...

Last month I went to Lowe's and bought one thing. I did not think that was possible... :)

I didn't think you could buy anything but $8 with $9 anymore!

Good job.

When we are working on a project, we make so many trips to Lowe's that the sales people remember our names. It becomes embarrassing. And of course and the end of the project, we always have a pile of hardware and/or paint that we didn't use. :oops:
