Build your own!

Would save me a whole bunch of butt-ache from my rock hard cycle seat :shock: :shock: Not sure how it would withstand Playa dust though?

Interesting link. It was a fun read too--even if you don't plan on building one.

Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

I'm afraid that it is in the nature of daddies that you are stuck with the one you've always had.

The impending house wants, all of which are on hold because my loving mylarry spent too much on me this year:

New toilet upstairs, new kitchen counters and sink, refinish the front room wood floor and maybe the hall and bedrooms too, then paint the upstairs rooms, repaint the guest room, tile the basement living room floor, new sink in the basement, new hot water heater, new patio/storage area behind the garage and maybe a hot tub, more blown-in insulation, and fix the gutters and raised garden beds out back.
These are not my fuckos.

:lol: We should all just join forces. Start at one house, and work our way around the country remodeling burners homes. We might be done in time for the last burn in 2012 :wink:

Brilliant idea, SailMan. Can we do homes in the South when its cold up here? And the ones in the North when its too warm down there.

Once we're done the ones on this continent, we can start on Europe.
