    Snit-snot, Twatter, Instaslam, click bait, social media in general, and I are polar opposites. Like pro sports, my interest is coupled with their concern for me, in case none of that's apparent.
    However, some leaks through, vis--vis;
    When younger, my concern was avoiding the common slide into crotchety old SOB.
    But here I am, killing it!

    In breaking new: In addition to excavation efforts, the "Worm" moon last night caused a higher than usual high tide and the stern broke free. They're keeping it from drifting hoping they can free the bow soon. Once removed there will be several (?) days of dredging to repair the damage done and prevent other ships from bottoming out. Over 250 ships are waiting and many others decided to go the old route around the "Cape of Good Hope" around the southern tip of Africa, over twice the travel time (depending on destination). The biggest heartbreak of all is the dozen or so containers one one barge containing thousands of cutting edge sexual aids! MORE TO COME!

    Good Hope, cutting edge, and MORE TO COME.
    If that's not a late night monologue setup, I don't know what is.

    Worm moon?, that's gonna have to go it alone. Not common nautical parlance.

    Worm moon is more of a farmer's reference. Early spring when the worms "return" also called sugar moon because it's around when the maple sap really starts flowing. but I thought worm was more fitting with the double entendres in the bit.

    That's funny. A classic example of why we wonder what makes some people tick.

    Even funnier, that scene came to mind days ago trying to get 8 x 12 floor grates around corner of forklift ramp through my rollup door and indoors. Used my Vermette hoist, those grates weigh 200 pounds!

    Our new house has a long, narrow food storage area. At the far end is room for a freezer...just. We managed to get the plumber to NOT put the water meter there and we verified it will fit with the appropriate maneuvers. Our sponsor and friends will be putting that in there shortly, hope they send pictures of figuring out how it fits.

    We simulated it with our CAD system which is how we know it fits.

    Did your CAD system simulate replacing the freezer if it goes bad? Or moving it after other other shelving etc is installed in the room? Or allowing access to various components for repair and maintenance?

    I hope so.....

    We plan to do the same thing except the small chest freezer we have will be 8" narrower than the hallway I'm building for it to sit in. It fits through a door and empty it only weighs about 50 lbs!
