    This ladder still OK?

    Here's the cause. Holes and or pins get worn out. Even though they have a lifetime warranty the LG rep said they are fine.

    LG boy said it was fine? I'll set it up when it quits raining and check it out a little more thoroughly, like Jim mentioned.

    Hardly ever have my LG ladder out and fully extended anymore. I know, it's sad. But I did have it extended the other day and it sure looked tweaked. Been over a year since I used it professionally and I just don't remember it having this much of a hyper back joint bend to it. Is this just the way they are and no big deal?
  5. Used to be big rallys on that day around here, but now that it's legal, nothing. A lot less cash in the community. Many stores have folded up. Lots of out of state folks came in and paid big bucks for grow property and now not much money in it. Lost logging to the tree huggers. Lost the dunes for atv's from the plant huggers. Lost wackie to the large growers. I'm 80% over the rib deal, but that last 20 sometimes takes a long time. Going to UCSF Monday to see a highly regarded orthopedic doc regarding my wife's knee/ACL situation. Meantime her leg is turning into a noddle on her.
  6. Seems like the knee problem is gone. I got some marathon running shoes designed for running on concrete and the heel thing is gone. I can put bad shoes on and it does not come back, of course I don't do a long hike etc. in the bad shoes. Last day of ski vacation a person on the far right of the chair lift decides they want to go off to the left when getting off. He crosses over onto the tails of my wife's skis, spins her out, falls on her, breaks her tibia, and snaps the ACL. On 4-20 I trip on our deck and slam my ribs into a metal chair. Too much fun.

    I did 2 houses in one day maybe twice. Usually spent 2.5 > 3.5 looking and that time plus an hour more per doing the reports. Easy to do when you don't get much work. Never hurts to do your best other than the RE's hating the reports. I'm 4 months retired now. Best job I ever had. It was just starting to roll, too. After a mere 10 years. I took a quick look, 20 minutes, at a house for a friend today just to see if it was worth going further. Felt weird checking one out again. I had trouble loading pictures on the PC, being out of it and all. Young folks getting out of college, not finding rewarding work, paying off loans, yikes. My younger son could have just walked right into my gig, but nooo, dada dumb. Better to get into drug land. He's crawling out of that stuff, but geeze. I just turned the light off to a great gig. Don't worry about me. I'm going up to Tahoe for a month ski vaca in March. Then another month car camping around the Sierra Nevada mtns. Pray for me! ha
  9. Her idea to raft that day. Her idea to ride the bike.
  10. A good realtor who knew I retired in October called me yesterday trying to sucker me into an inspection. Explained no insurance, etc. She finally gave up. It twere the best job I ever had, yet feels great to be done with it all. I'll be 65 in April. My wife is retiring in a month. That's when extended trips will start. We're going to stay a month at Lake Tahoe in March. Also, gots me a crewcab pu (poor mans motorhome) for extended travel/campouts. My wife drove the pu to the take-out for this float trip while I was putting the raft together, parked it, then rode the 45 minutes back on her mtn. bike, which is sitting in the back of the raft.
  11. Pic of when I first got my cell ph out and the other is the deer's wtf moment.
  12. So, on Jan 1 the wife and I did a float. Pretty dang cold in the shady canyons, but once out in the sunshine we felt like we were next to the pool at some fancy hotel. There we sat minding our own business when I saw a young buck coming towards us from upstream on the right where those larger rocks are. It kept coming towards us. Mentioned to my wife to keep still and don't slurp your beer, a deer is coming, where she says? Right next to the water. Can't see it in this photo, but it came right up to that mound in front of us before it got that wtf look and started moving off to the right looking a little embarrassed for not spotting us earlier. Boy, that was a close one. ha
  13. You should have seen it 3 years ago before the bladder tumor was yanked out!
  14. I have about half of those symptoms. My heel felt a little weird all day yesterday. Went and did two laps on the 700 footer. Woke up this morning and no pain at all. Retirement is cool. Sometimes I don't have phone with me. When I do if I don't recognize a ph number I don't pick it up. Fire up my main puter 1/3 as much. Have less fondness for Realtors. Not missing the crap houses at all. Things could be worse.
