    Thanks for the birthday wishes. I'm trying to grasp being 3/4 of a century old and realizing I won't be around for the finish of that last quarter. My gf's that she visited every few weeks to do some housekeeping and visit didn't make it. He passed away the previous weekend and she went to his funeral last week.

    Darn, been gone for a little bit. Like having a new baby, having a 2 year old "puppy" is quite demanding. I've been taking him to a local dog park any time it's dry enough. Walk him around the baseball fields and then take him into the enclosed area. There was a 25lb Scotty there one day that just chased him growling and barking as he ran around and jumped over him. Then a 75lb one-year-old Shepherd that after a couple laps around had him laying beside me ready to go. I think the size and speed had him a bit intimidated.

    Today, for the first time, I let him loose next door with his 60lb girl and they had a ball running around chasing each other. They've wanted that for a long time. Unfortunately, Jake caught a whiff of the dogs next door and off he went. I had to chase him down. The end of off leash until I get an electric fence established or I get him trained to listen when called.

    I picked up a can of Camel Mint this morning since I forgot my can when I went out. I really didn't need to but I was curious. It really wasn't as sweet as I remember but a far cry from General and at over $8 for a can, ridiculous.

    The electric issue was due to using the poke holes rather than tightening the wire on the post. It was obvious when I pulled the outlet as the common wire was discolored. I should have worked on it during the day the first time and taken my time. I had a problem with a GFI that fed electric to my pond also. That really was a pain. I ended up replacing the box and shortening the wires, just to get the new GFI into the box. That was a two tripper to HD. The new face cover was supposed to attach to the same two screws that held the GFI but it wasn't tight to the box that way so I needed four screws that attached to the box itself. Came out nice after two days and two trips.

    I don't know why, after the ECF upgrade, every time you backspace, you also lose the paragraph spacing. Grrrr

      I’m glad you figured it out. I don’t remember if I mentioned it here but got up one morning and the outlets on one side of the kitchen were dead. I had a similar result as you Roth. When installed the wires were pushed in instead of being wrapped but even after putting them on it didn’t work. The Gfci was actually bad so I replaced both of the ones in the kitchen.

        I’m curious to hear what you find.

        That was the pond issue but that was easy to analyze since the GFI (yeah a "c" belongs there but I think ground fault indicator) was exposed to the weather since they resided the house. They never put the cover on the box and I never complained about it. I just needed screws, I thought, but never remembered to buy them.
        Then when I needed to replace the GFI, I started with the old box, got it all together and found they didn't put the cover on because the strip on the sone side of the box where you screwed it together was hosed, part of the repair fiasco.

          Well I broke out a can of 2018 Thunder Raspberry tonight, Mmm so Good. Now down to just 4 cans in the freezer, really wish they would bring it back, but I guess that is just wishful thinking.
          I think I have a few cans deep in my freezer. I agree, I wish they would come back with it. It was my first snus of the day for a long time.
