that was pretty obvious... unless, of course, your house was built by the first little piggy.

Open, it is!

Clav, wasn't that obvious apparently. I had 3 people in to give quotes who would not guarantee it wasn't load bearing, and told me I'd have to go back to the building's drawings to find out 100%.

I tell you what, this the most exhausting "holiday" I've ever had. Sanding, painting, moving furniture around, up and down ladders all day. I need a holiday from my holiday.

Up and down ladders all day is incompatible with lethargic lardbutt.

It was traumatic, but yes, I now accept the existence of this "new" year.

Last night, someone stole the air conditioner units from two people in a nearby town.

This is of concern to me because said town is where I own a few rental properties. The perps must be very unconcerned about the consequences, because they did it while the residents were home, and, if detected during the act, would have been severely hampered in their absconditure by the presence of a foot of snow on the ground.

The amount of copper in a typical AC unit would fetch around $12 at the local scrapyard. What sort of crack monkey decides to make his living this way?

On receipt of further info, the two residences were owned by a mother and her daughter, respectively. And while the daughter's household is, as far as I know, comprised of reasonably respectable burghers, the mother's husband has always struck me as a disreputable ne'er-do-well. He's probably at the bottom of it somehow.

Heh, Purity.

Reminds me of a now-infamous science fiction convention where some, um, "hanger-ons" that were into, um, kinky bound activities, discovered that ceiling fire extinguishers are, indeed, not load bearing. (Google "Disclave flood" for the tales of woe...)
