A sign of aging, just installed a grab bar on the door jamb leading from the garage up the single steep step into the breezeway. Watched her struggle too many times to keep the screen door open and leverage up that one step with a bum hip. If she's carrying something it's an effort.
There are three signals of aging I've experienced....
1) People always open doors for you
2) Everyone calls you "Sir"
3) Before going out, you check your shirt for food and coffee stains
You need to learn to like all the little everday things like a sip of good whiskey, a soft bed, a glass of buttermilk,  and a feisty old gentleman like myself

There are a couple more, not necessarily in order.

"You might be old if....

 you carry a spare set of shorts in the car with you. "

when you look at a menu, and remember your glasses are in the car."

Worst of all is to walk into a room and not remember what you coming for, then can't remember what room you came from so you can't go back!!!! ;D

That's when I asked people if they "believe in the hereafter."

If they respond "they do"...that's when I say "that's good...what the hell am I here after?

RCJ, many years ago I installed some bars like that for my folks while they were gone for a couple of days. Boy was my Mom honked off! But about a month later she called and said it was a good thing for them! Well done.
Highlight of today was some fellas doing some gravel work on the driveway. Just usual maintenance but looks so much better. A couple good rains to wash it off will have that part looking nice. They will be putting some flagstone in next week to help drainage.

Here is some more....

I have a day off. ;D

I took her over to the nieces so she can spoil Amelia who is almost 2 and hasn't seen here since sometime in the fall.  I told them if she causes trouble to call me or 911.  Would almost be funny because it would be the same station and they have to ask her why she wasn't home.  ::)

Day 35 at home, Mri Tuesday was good.  No cancer appointment till April.

Morning y'all.
Coffee and tea are hot.

My dad gave me a black walnut board several years ago. I started cutting out some pistol stocks yesterday,  but broke my last scroll saw blade. I'll see if I can find blades at Ace after church.

'Tis 14 and sunny. High of 35.

Through the years, I've made some pistol grips for myself out of Corian and also Walnut. I used a Rotary-Oscillating Sander to shape the grips. You can easily change the cylinder diameter to suit the area of the grip being shaped. It was similar to the one shown. I bought it from my local Menards store.

Great. It is a useful tool. One thing I learned the hard way, always wear a mask. Walnut dust is nasty stuff.
