Just tryin to figure out how to do this the right way. Figure I better listen to those in the know. If you are going to learn something you might as well learn it correctly or not at all.

I have an appointment at the building dept. in a few hours. hopefully I'll get to talk to the man with the plan, lol. I'll report back later and tell you all what they say.

Concrete slab question


I agree with the statement that you should pay attention to Willie T. So does my wife, and just about anyone who knows me. They say. "Ya gotta watch him closely... you never know where he might wander off to these days."

I admit that 'old' don' make right. It just makes 'old.' But at least I've had the advantage of living long enough to see how a lot of other people do it right. So, if my memory holds out, I can still repeat some of the better ways I've run across.
