Godspeed, Munky. Looking forward to your report from the homefront after you get your DH settled in and you catch your breath.

I once heard a person remark about how amazing it was the things folks do for the people they love.

No it is not! It is the normal behavior we all display for those we love and for those we see that need our help.

What are you doing?

Watching anxiously for my new Dyson Absolute to arrive. Costco website was down, so I couldn't get ETA. Took Beagle out, and it's here! My Eureka Boss is too heavy and unwieldly, this little vac is much lighter. It's charging now, but when I test-drove it, it's very powerful. Pricey as all get-out, but Costco had a $110 off coupon.

Congrats Dawgluver. Learn to think of it this way... Price is relative to the ease of use, job done, back ache dispelled, annoyance banished.



Could probably think of a few more if I tried hard enough.

Thanks, dragn! I see your gif now! Very true. I've been excessively cheap all my life. Now I'm old and cheap. (Hm. Rephrasing. I've been a cheapskate all my life. Not cheap.)

There's more attachments to this thing than an autobody shop. There will be somewhat of a learning curve, I'm sure. First thing I did after plugging it in was drop it on the floor, which let out all the dust I'd just vacuumed up during the test drive.

LOL... I know the feeling! I brought home my repaired vacuum after much hemming and hawing about whether or not to even fix it. I did... and immediately dropped it down the staircase breaking the handle.

It has been several years and wire changed once, but the handle is a piece of pvc white water pipe with several strands of picture wire threaded thru. Works fine as long as you don't pinch the side of your hand when you carry it. (Nasty and bloody pinch, but you only do it once.)
