Really, All I Wanted To Do Was Clean Up That Spilled Barbecue Sauce


Inspired by the travails (NOTE: Snooty word for clusterf**ks) suffered by dbs at his think.stew blog.

  3. @Lemons: I've fallen through my deck and I can't get up.
    @Jewels: On the bright side, I found Jimmy Hoffa. And a nickel.
    @Eva: Yeah, I know. And me all decked out in my dress tee shirt.
    @Violet: My sister-in-law suggested a power washer. AFTER she took the picture. Won't be seeing her around no more (NOTE: A double negative).

  4. At least you have enough sense to do the whole deck. My Father In Law didn't, and we ended up doing a 4'x4' patch for $200. We added more holes than we patched up...

  7. Psst, as Bryce mentioned, I've outed you today. Al, I could've told you to avoid A1 sauce. That stuff is a b*tch to clean up.

  8. @Lost: It's still not done (which raises the question: why the frik am I here instead of working?)
    @OT: It's taken a life all on its own. My son asked me this morning, "Are you just bored? Is the deck your highest priority?" No and no. It's just that it doesn't cost me anything to scrape, clean, and tighten (oh, I thought we were talking about me).
    @laughingmom: Yeah, but my dog fell through the boards while chasing a baby.
    @Bryce: Welcome, Bryce!

  11. So that picture of you sitting on the toilet, really is YOU!!!! LOL... I thought that you just pulled that from the internet, but now that I see you working on the deck, it's confirmation that only crazy you would do that! Thanks for the giggle friend!

  12. @anthony: It dripped between a couple boards. Which I pulled up to clean. Then I looked at a couple more. Decided to clean them. Before I knew it, I'm standing inside the thing.
    @Tracy: Oh, yeah, that's me. Mrs. Penwasser refused to take the picture so I had a good friend snap it.
    @Clipped: I expect to have it finished tomorrow. Then I'm gonna start overhauling the neighbor's car (I think he's out of town).

  13. Shame I didn't notice that killer turtle sneaking up behind me.

  14. when you have done that, I have some decking that needs sorting too. That wil teach you for being messy with the BBQ sauce

  15. Should be done today. If that turtle lets me.

  16. UPDATE (not that it matters all that much to you): I thought I was going to be done today. But, when I went to reinstall the deck boards, they didn't fit anymore. This did not make sense to me because I didn't ADD anything-I merely scraped off crud (NOTE: a scientific term for 'crap'). So, I'll have to figure out what I'm going to do tomorrow. There's always tomorrow..
    Mrs. Penwasser is not happy.

  17. Oh, yeah, and I let the air out of the turtle. WishedIi thought of that sooner.

  19. Welcome aboard (God, that sounds like something Captain Steubing or Ike, your bartender, would say. But, not Gopher. He's now doing congressman things. Like sending pictures of his doink over Twitter).
    And the deck STILL isn't finished.......
