Stone cold sober, if you can believe that. Been layin off the sauce since New Years. Body needs a break - been at it for almost 3 decades non-stop. :sick:

Yeah definitely looking forward to getting that stoker in. Seems like a much less stressful operation. 8 seasons of manual operation are enough for me!

That thing was blasting off for 3 minutes before I noticed. With the TV on, I heard nothing. The smell is what caught my attention ... then I switched the monitor to the basement view .. and HOLY *censored*!! I didn't know if that was smoke or steam, so I was jumping over cats & chairs .. and I think I touched only 3 stairs on the way down. :lol:


The humidity in the house went up 10% in less than a half hour! :o :lol:

You see that right there is the problem !!!!! Had you been drinking, you would have needed a refil and then would have remembered.....................


Boy if only that cat could talk. I bet there was a lot of words flying as you were running towards the steps. A lot of HOLY *censored*'s, with an adjective or 2 !!

Did you kick yourself in the ass ????


Glad you caught it. Who knows what a couple more replies would have cost you .
