Typical


A typical kitchen.
I got up way too early - drinking way too much coffee (Beer comes later)
Killing time until I have to go look at 2 furnaces and then, look
at a transmission leak on a friend's car

Just happened to notice the state of my kitchen (Re-done a year or so,
ago).
There on one end of the counter-top (next to the toaster and the crock-
pot... right by the spice rack) -
A 20 oz. trim-hammer and a decent 30 ft. tape (Malco makes the best tapes!)

Panning left - there's the microwave, at the other end -
Of course, surrounded with an assortment of coffee-cans with a vast array of tools and fasteners (Typical, right?!?)
Underneath the table, that the microwave sits on - the usual, kitchen
accounterments(SP) -
A Dewalt angle-grinder, hack-saw, knee-pads, 50' Greenlee, nylon,
fish-tape (Essential in any kitchen to prepare fish!) - mechanic's tools - a caulk gun - teflon-paste (Nothing adds to the flavor of food; like
teflon-paste!) -
and, a (kitchen essential) - a 1/2 inch Makita drill!
(You can see why they call me "Chef Rossi"!)
Mmmmmm - Teflon-Paste!

Across the room, on some shelves - a vast, array of tools!
An "AJC" roofing hammer and a Vaugh 24 oz. framing hammer -
(Good meat tenderizers! - especially for fingers!)
Tubes of caulk - thin-set trowels - a concrete edger -
Paint brushes, roller covers, stud-sensor - hand-seamer, crimper,
snap-lock tool - fasteners and all the drill bits one would ever need!

What's on the floor - a 5 gal. bucket of dry-wall, compound, an assortment of paint, mud-pans, - grout - thin-set.....
Hey! - there's the 3/4 inch, Di-electric union I was looking for!
(Yeah, I bought another one!)

A typical kitchen!
Right?!?

You guys must be bachelors or keep your wives heavily sedated.

Polecat, you are right with me on that. When i was married I had to use the garage for my stuff. Did not go over to big when I left stuff in the kitchen with the wife. Being single everything is right where I can find it fast now.

"Polecat"
Not married? -
You are correct, sir!
(2 ex-wives, though - they would have never put up with it!)
Can't blame them!

LOL, my wife is the most patient and understanding creature on the planet and has put up with my nonsense for 20 years now. The one thing that she can't stomach is me leaving toys in the kitchen.

Toys?!?
Toys?!?!?
These aren't no stinkin' TOYS!!!
They're implements of construction!
They're crucial parts to my life and well-being!
(Also, maybe, I'm a little bit - sloppy, sometimes!)

"chrisn"
I don't specify the brand - my landlord does.
At the moment it's Pittsburgh Ultra -
Still - primer and two coats, though.
Doesn't look too bad!

I am right with ya about toys. I am a mechanic so they are my life also. Now my toys, on the other hand, are in my living room. That is a whole other issue. Kind of looks like the cockpit of the space shuttle with all the idiot lights. ha ha.

I thought those small piles were just part of being a man. Most houses that keep a man have those..lol..

I was showing a property recently. The male seller was hanging around outside. When we went in it showed beautifully...right down to the cushions on the couch at the correct angle and the throw placed just so...

I was very confused

Then I opened the basement door and the small piles were there. On the ledge..on the stairs..on the water heater...ect...

That's when I realized he must have shipped his furniture to storage and the place was staged.

I thought I made this clear!
They're not "TOYS"!!! -
They're essential, elements of my exsistence! -
(And, I'm a little, bit sloppy!)
Most of my mechanics tools are in the basement, at the moment -
not all, though!

Those piles are called "Man scat". since being domesticated long long ago and having been house broken to some degree we understand it is not proper to defacate just anywhere so we have improvised a less primal way of marking our territory.
