I'd rather do it myself (sometimes)


Hey, all, my name is Lee, I live in southeast Missouri about an hour south of St. Louis, and I'm retired (early from injury) from the Ironworkers, Local 396, St. Louis. I've rehabbed 6 houses over the years, and I am presently working on the "Money Pit d' jour" that my wife thought was such a "great deal" that "we" could get done in no time. As a guy once said to me after this purchase, "Oh, you're wife speaks French, too!?" Confused, I said no, she doesn't. He told me every time there was a new project discussed at his household, the wife would always say , "Oui, Oui!! [translation- We, We!] WE could do this project!" But he then sighed and said, "But it always ends up being me-me, not oui, oui." Same here. The next one is the one I will live my days out in, and they can just lock the door when I die and leave me there.
Anyway, I've got a problem that is a simple one, and I think you all can help me with it. I will post it immediately under the general headache section, and we'll go from there. Thanks in advance for your help, and I hope I can give back as much as I get.

Thank you. BYW, that's not my drive way on my avatar. I found it somewhere. Who in the world would actually pour something like that, much less pass its inspection or pay for it. I just couldn't find anything else to put on there yet.
