What are you doing?

No, LP, pink Double Bubble would be tacky. We're all about class here along the river. As demonstrated by my elegant taste in duct tape.

SO and I spent the afternoon at my sister's home. She needed a new cordless phone system so I helped her pick it out, load the phone numbers, record a greeting and install them.

It's annoying how archaic the data entry system is for these phones. It's like using an old flip phone to enter letters and numbers.

No problem and I hope you were not offended. You have to realize that was the Canadian prairies in the 50's. First, there was no duct tape and second, the car was (wait for it)... a purple Edsel!

Like this without the flames

Oh heavens no! No offense taken! Bubble gum would be "tacky" (as in sticky). My humor may be a bit weird at times. OK, most of the time.

Dawg, you need to get seasonal. For now you need Halloween themed tape:




Then you need to move on to turkeys, then Santa and Christmas trees, then Valentine's, etc...

Hm. Spiders and skulls duct tapes interest me, CG. They would be up year-round though.

Sigh. I need to bite the ice cube and go shopping for a new fridge. The ice maker seems to have bitten the dust now too, though now I can see what's in the fridge thanks to rope, 2x4s, and duct tape that allow the fridge light to come on.

Dawg.....gotta hand it to ya for being so creative. But yeah...looks like a new fridge is in order. Sorry....I know that's a pain. Things just don't last like they used to. Grrr....!

As for the duct tape, I kind of like this one. It matches my cool weather comfies and slippers.

Hm. Looks like camo, Cheryl! Though I like leopard too. More of a skull and spider girl myself.

I'll probably check the local Menards first, though I'm not looking forward to the hassle of hauling out, rewiring, repiping, and replacing.

As long as I have a neighbor with a (formerly) empty freezer he wasn't using, who lives 50 feet away, and I have his garage code, I'm not in any rush.

What a nice neighbor! I hope you find a good fridge replacement, and that it's a relatively painless installation.

Thanks Cheryl! Yes, we take care of each other. His daughters were sort of my daughters when they were growing up. My little garden "helpers".

They're both successful adults now, and still remember the gardening stuff I taught them!
