Oh that's right, my wife got a damn sectional and armoire instead because a kayak is a frivolous and selfish expense. :banghead:...

GSP as a pet. Someone's got some puppies in the Facebook swap shop group for $800. I've been looking for a dog for the family. After the last fiasco with the brain damaged dog I got, I'm a little leery. Before anyone says anything about it, the dog seriously had brain damage. Doc said was probably w...
| Movie/TV Board|| Do actors doing cameos get paid? - DLauw on 3/17/14 at 10:11 pm|
I mean really paid. Just watched anchorman 2 and the news battle at the end had a-list actors galore. Do all these million dollar actors get paid serious money for these brief moments in a movie? They don't do it just for the fun of it or do they?...
| Outdoor Board|| Best tool for job: Caulk - DLauw on 3/15/14 at 12:52 pm|
Is the finger pretty much the world standard for spreading caulk? Is there a better or more suited tool than the finger?
I've bought a few of the spreaders from tv ads and they don't come close to the performance of Mr. Pointer.
I should probably get back to work but I hate caulking....

Pops and I love LSU football and baseball (baseball for me more than pops). Our business is in Lake Charles so we support McNeese sports' programs but rarely attend games here.
We attended their fundraising auction a few weeks ago and bought some package deals for LSU baseball tickets. One of the...

Say you spend a few k on your home theater and decide to watch a movie with the volume at 55 (optimal for my/your system) and the wine glasses rattle a bit during intense scenes. When your wife comes in and bitches that it's too loud what's the technically correct answer to her?

Some lowlife lifted two 75 p&g YETI's off my back porch this weekend. I take some blame for not bringing them in the shop or the house before we left out of town Friday night. I was in such a hurry I just forgot about them. I'm so pissed at myself right now.

| O-T Lounge|| Fido vs. Ford - DLauw on 1/8/14 at 4:22 pm|
In my lifetime of being around paint and body work, I've seen some pretty crazy shite.
I've seen a horse bite a hood, I've seen a goat eat a side mirror but I've never seen a dog use a car for a chew toy.
That's double paneled at the wheel well and very strong.

For me was tonight. Got a call that my 16yo was involved in an auto accident.

I was behind a responding ambulance and...

I've been driving and around jeeps most of my life. My kids grew up in jeeps. When my daughter turned 16 I bought her a used TJ Sahara.
I sold my CJ and bought a new JK. My wife likes to drive mine (I'm a little put off by that) so I'm considering her one now.
