Bummer about the sock. Did you lose the specialty screw?

Are you talking about an allen wrench or a "star" type screwdriver?

RIP, cute toucan sock. Wonder what your hungry chair will eat next.

Well it a weird square hole with a smaller square in the bottom. I have most screwdrivers, I never seen one of these. Oh well that is what I get for taking a German 1990 computer chair from my neighbor. I use tweezers and brute force and got the screw to turn.

Yeah I liked the toucan sock, yes I am 40 and my feet are big and wide but sometimes I would want to have something else then tube socks and I was really happy when I found these at market stall.

Yes, RIP toucan sock. D'oh! Screwdriver, not screw.

What are you doing?

Well, boogers. I have the exact screwdriver bit you're describing. Of course, it may have taken awhile to send it to Sweden, and it still couldn't have saved your cute sock. Very innovative to use a tweezers as a screwdriver though.

Do you think it might want this bit? That's for Robertson screws. Here's a pic of a Phillips screwdriver tip:



If so, then a Phillips screwdriver will often work, but not as well as a Robertson.

I'm Done

Missed seeing Mr. Munky yesterday. Getting the finishing touches done took me all day. Tomorrow everything will be here and installed by the time he gets home on Thursday.Oh, and don't play around with those step tape rolls.
That tape really does stick.Especially to me.
The guys filled in for me.

Found his shower chair it's this one.Plus we bought a suction cup mat that goes underneath it.https://www.amazon.com/MedMobile%C2%...ords=MedMobile

This shower head. Talk about coming home to style!
He deserves it.


And special non slip material. That will help me for his hospital bed table. But also for his P/T after he comes home.Dycem Non-Slip Material, Roll, 8" X 6-1/2 Foot, Forest Green - 50-1501g - Adl - Mansion Athletics

I think were all set..I've managed to recruit, organize,and pull off all the magic I could find. How did I do?

Poor Sophie might not like her new playpen.She's probably going to think she's in trouble.We'll make a game of it.Put our G/R in it with her and her lil bed and blanket, toys. She will get that it's only when Dad is walking around.Short visits to the pen at first.Until she gets the idea to stay away from his cane while he's up and around.

Munky Badger.

I'm getting ready to make our main meal (we eat at 1pm before TB goes to work) and TB's sandwiches for later.

Then I am heading off to Costco by myself. My "daughter" or TB usually go with me but he is at work and I am unfortunately estranged from her again and I think this time will have to be permanent. Sad story but I need to only have positive influences in my life right now.

After Costco and a rest, I am going to tackle another area on the house to get it into shape for selling. I think it is going to be the pantry so I can set the small appliances in there when we aren't using them.

Plus I still have to write a blog post for today.

Busy times!
