    Putting lights together tonight, you can tell some young pup sitting behind a desk wrote these instructions, and they are probably brighter than the darn lights!:eek::cool:

    Dan, now that I'm retired [tired again, or twice as tired as before], except for these terrible winter days, I'm busier than I ever was. I don't know how I ever got anything done when I was still working. Anyone who is afraid they won't have anything to do after they retire, listen to ol' Uncle Jack and keep working or you'll really find out what work is. Mrs. Pine thinks retirement is a license for her to take over and become snoopervisor/slave driver LOL.

    Finally put all 4 new lights up, now painting is next. No hurry, but soon. I know 3 things about electricity.
    1. You have to pay for what you use.
    2. It will kill you.
    3. Red/Red - Black/Black.
    :cool::p

    My Queen had an electrician quote her $200. to install the new lights, I did it for a case of brew. ;)

    Very nice, Dan. One thing for sure, once you retire, people seem to think you are fair game when it comes to asking for help or volunteering. I guess I need to get better at saying no. I agree with Cal, don't know how I got stuff done when I was working.;)

    I like helping people that want to do for themselves, but lack the knowledge, courage, or just plain feel overwhelmed by the project scope. I love the outcome of projects even at work. Maybe that's what has worked for me all these years. I want to flip houses after retiring, but the Queen wants me to slow down. IDK but we'll live it out day by day!:)
