    That's it MD?

    On Monday I fixed a picture frame, Fixed a mirror, and removed an extension from a ceiling fan for a flush mount.

    Sunday I dissassembled a bed frame only to re-assemble it in another apartment, changed my oil and spark plugs on my truck, and, the most important part, put in a vanilla scented air freshner!

    Hows that for Mr. Fix-it! :p

    *anxiously awaits attention from PFF girls*

    When I get back from Mexico next week I will tile my entire kitchen counters, replace the kitchen sink and faucet. Then after that I will tear out my old shower and tile a new shower and replace the shower door. After that if I am feeling really spunky I am going to do the nursery. :p

    Don't get me started, boys. Today I put together the side of a Chevy pickup, the bed and door of another, the front end and fender of a Buick Le Sabre, and the front end and door of a Chrysler Town and Country minivan. All while wearing my mechanic's uniform, which women seem to dig so much. :)

    I also just financed $3,000 in tools from Matco. God it's expensive to be a body tech.

    Yeah but Mo's is work. Dave and I are doing our own projects.

    After I finish those other projects I am putting down a cement slab and walkway down the side of my house. When the weather cools down a bit I am putting in a garage.

    Hey all you PFF'rs, I just got off the phone with a Becca Bishop. She has me scheduled for orientation on Tues. the 17th at 8:30am. It's in Phoenix and is about an hour or so.

    I'll PM MJA Anyone that has a question or two they would like me to ask feel free to post it here or PM me. I will make sure and see that your concerns are addressed.

    I would really like to get as many people as possible in on this as it really does alot of good things for those in need and for you.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    I need your input PFF'ers

    Habbitat for Humanity does group building activities refered to as 'Camp Habitat'
    These are 1 day group builds and are held on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 6am to 2pm.

    I need to know how-many and when (as in what date) And hopefully, we can do this next month. It will be cooler than August so that makes it easier.

    Turns out we'll need to schedule an orientation to learn about HFH and for the safety info (It's a construction site after all :) ) before we can jump into those tool belts.

    edit: Camp Habitat

    edit2: MJA suggested (and it's not a half bad ideafor those who are unsure about jumping into this) that we try the Hospitality Volunteer thing before actually grabbing the hammer.

    I can do a Saturday if I know in advance and can do my homework early. Tuesdays are bad for me...I have clinical all day.

    Just give me a date, and I'll work it out.

    PLUS...Would I pass up the chance to do a good deed AND get to lather up the PFF men?

    HECK NO!!

    Official Lather Girl...right here! [face_devil]

    I think a Saturday would work best for just about everyone in the PFF. I would be happy to lend my services. ;)

    I guess if Jedi_Wench is the Official Lather Girl, then I can be the Official Snack Girl. :D [face_devil] [face_laugh]

    EDIT: Just getting the right job down. [face_blush]

    Hey ya IC! I don't mean to burst your bubble but Mara Jade AZ claimed that one already. :(

    How about the Official Snack Girl..you could feed the men! You know what they say, "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach!"

    Even the Sith and the Jedi seem to follow that rule!
