Gun and knife are interchangeable. I'm frequently surprised by folks that were never taught this one.


Same goes for those very thin glass drinking glasses. Opened tin cans as well.

On a reader board sign I passed in Seattle:

"In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on." -- Robert Frost

From a neighbor, recently: Don't walk backwards near the edge of a roof.

NEVER NEVERNEVER walk backward when working aloft anywhere!

I'm quite careful when elevated. I spent most of my time up there scooting on my butt. Slow and tiring but not too dangerous.

As a one time ironworker - I have one word to say
