I lowered it (the couch)

Ok, I got a few minutes from my hectic work schedule that I can write a few words. Boy howdy let me tell ya, the old Billy Bob been busy as a freak'n honey bee. I said 'honey" for all the ladies out there. "Hey honey, watch this".

I was sit'n on the couch an' I placed a 2 inches piece of something under my feet. Holy cows, the couch is much more comfortable with 2 inches under my feet. Sits much better. At this point I done decided to lower the couch 2 inches. An' that exactly what I did......for the necks 2 days. An' boy howdy let me tell ya, that was a chore. Heavy shit too. Anyhows, it's all put back together an' I'm think'n, it looks pretty damn nice. Sits pretty good too, but the foam rubber is a mite too stout (firm). Seat height is 20 inches.


See what I'm talk'n bout??? Sadie May says...."Oh yes, I got my couch back".

I was tell'n Robert an' "yo mama" I was gonna put can goods back under the couch. That when "yo mama" says...."take that hobby shit out of the closet an' put it under the couch". Ha, now why the hell didn't I think of that? Hobby stuff is under the couch an' I have half a closet for can goods an' other stuff.

Awning repair. I was gonna do a redneck repair on the awning material, but after a close look, I ordered new material. The awning rolls up loose on one end an' the freak'n tension springs inside the roller make god awful noises. The only ways to check 'em the springs is to remove them from the roller. A very dangerous job for a rookie. The springs are under tension an' that tension has to be let loose...safely. I done it before so's don't worry bout the old Billy Bob mak'n a visit to the emergency room. Replacement springs have been located on Ebay just in case they need changed out. You know, like broke an' shit like that.

Before installation of the couch, I removed the beautiful walnut flooring under it. A 5/8 inch shim has to be installed....ain't gonna tell ya why (that's how thick the walnut flooring was). Robert is gonna jack up the end of the slide out to install the shim....but he's boiling taters for tater salad. I hope the hell he knows how to peel taters 'cause I ain't gonna eat no tater peel'ns. Ha, went to Hardies the other day an' the freak'n french fries had peels on 'em. I don't eat tater peels.

I rekon I been on my feet too much for the last couple weeks.....my freak'n back is kill'n me. For the last 3 nights I had me a ton of them dreaded backards leg cramps. An' I'm gonna tell ya right now, if'n you ain't never had one, you ain't never gave birth to a 12 pounds baby boy. These things is ten times worser than a regular leg cramp an' it takes ten times longer to get rid of 'em. Tendons or what ever ya call 'em is tighter than a "C" note pianner string.

Leonard has done catched....an' ate, his second bird. Bringed a wing inside "da house" for me to see an' pat him on the back. I tole him bout a hunnert times to leave them birds be, but Leonard is a critter hunter an' he says to me...."Oh yeah? Watch this". Damn cat.

Ok, this is all for today. See's ya laters.

  2. So, Billy Bob and Louie ought to travel well together. Billy Bob can eat the taters and Louie can eat the skins.

    Twenty inches is a good seat height--easy to get up from that height. Hard to put my socks on there, though. :)

  9. Good job on the couch, BB.

    I'm partial to the Bunn coffee makers that are hot all the time. You pour in the amount of water you want to for coffee and a minute later your coffee is done brewing. I hear they even have a K-cup brewer these days. Pricey but worth it as they last forever and can be kept clear of accreations with a spring rod and a monthly brew of vinegar, unlike Mr Coffee rigs.

  10. " foam rubber is a mite too stout (firm)."

    I would imagine that foam will, in time, give a bit. My couch cushions did.
    Billy B, I envy your knowledge and your "Get Up and Do It" mindset. Mine seems to be: "Get With It But Never Finish". Couch looks fine, I and Sadie are thinking. I'm bettin' you have sunshine this morning - I have. Cold as whiz but SUNNY here. Sissy

  11. My life became devastated when my husband sent me packing, after 8 years that we have been together. I was lost and helpless after trying so many ways to make my husband take me back. One day at work, i was absent minded not knowing that my boss was calling me, so he sat and asked me what its was all about i told him and he smiled and said that it was not a problem. I never understand what he meant by it wasn't a problem getting my husband back, he said he used a spell to get his wife back when she left him for another man and now they are together till date and at first i was shocked hearing such thing from my boss. He gave me an email address of the great spell caster who helped him get his wife back, i never believed this would work but i had no choice that to get in contact with the spell caster which i did, and he requested for my information and that of my husband to enable him cast the spell and i sent him the details, but after two days, my mom called me that my husband came pleading that he wants me back, i never believed it because it was just like a dream and i had to rush down to my mothers place and to my greatest surprise, my husband was kneeling before me pleading for forgiveness that he wants me and the kid back home, then i gave Happy a call regarding sudden change of my husband and he made it clear to me that my husband will love me till the end of the world, that he will never leave my sight. Now me and my husband is back together again and has started doing pleasant things he hasn't done before, he makes me happy and do what he is suppose to do as a man without nagging. Please if you need help of any kind, kindly contact Happy for help and you can reach him via email: happylovespell2@gmail.com
