Tell Me Something Good

Post by Bigshankhank » Sat Apr 17, 2021 12:19 pm

For those few of us who still able around these quiet corridors of the internet backwater that is the UTMC, we have all shared a lot of bad shit that we've seen in the past few years, whether it be in the Jackbooted Thugs, COVID or wherever else. No sense sticking our head in the sand, I appreciate everyone's frankness when it comes to discussing our troubles.

But tell me something good that happened to you. Did you earn a promotion at work? Maybe your kid got accepted to the college of their dreams? Learn how to use a 3D printer? Finally get that 13th toe removed?

I'll start it off. My daughter just this morning told my wife and I that she is in the beginning of her 2nd trimester of her first pregnancy, meaning that by Halloween I'm going to be a grandfather. Correction, I'm going to be a sexy-as-fuck grandfather. She waited as long as she did because she actually was pregnant in January of last year and let us all know at about 4 weeks but subsequently miscarried, so she wanted to be more certain this time before letting the cat out of the bag. FWIW I am under strict orders not to tell anyone but I highly doubt any of you would know her, nor do many of you follow me on social medias so I think this is a safe space.

The world isn't all bad. What you got?

Good call, BSH, and congratulations, Grandpa!

We've been redoing our front garden. It's not quite as significant as grandkids but it's what I got right now.

I started a new job in a new field, and while I am quietly trying to exit to a different portion of the field, I am currently doing Residential and Light Commercial HVACR Service.

I just spent the past month replacing all of the ductwork in my house. Originally built in '87 but rats had gotten into the attic and tore up the insulated jackets to get condensation off of it, with the added affect of it leaking like hell everywhere in the house. Oh and the previous homeowner had at some point gone up there and tried to replace some of it but had left the old pieces in place so there was just a mess of ducts laying on top of each other, pinched into truss openings, not to mention he used R-4 mobile home flex duct.

Things are kind of coming up Milhouse for me lately. Accepted a job offer so my 4 months of riding the couch are coming to a close. Gotta go get some miles on a bike before I lash myself to the oar again.

I'm looking forward to photographs of the glorious repair of the brakes, lest those fall to pieces again.
I mean it! If we don't see it, you didn't fix it. :mrgreen:

There's a reason I'm not eager to do residential in the south. That's a small portion of it. My sympathies.
