So this has been an up and down week.

First, for those who were here last week, uncle went in for another biopsy. This time, the surgeon (a new one thank you very much) decided to just go for the liver. His reasoning was, if we find the cancer there, it basically doesn't matter about the sites on the esophagus and lung. The good news is, the mass on his liver was a cyst so at least now we have a shot with chemo/radiation where as if it was cancerous, he was going to be sent home on palliative care plan. Not that having cancer on the other two locations are great but at least we have a better change of fighting and winning with those locations. If it was in his liver, we were basically screwed.

Then I catch bronchitis. Serious, its summer, you shouldn't get bronchitis in the summer.

Then I just got off the phone with mom, my grandparents' dog doesn't look like she'll make it through the night. She hasn't wanted to eat for a couple of days and today has done nothing but sleep. Her kitty (yes, she has a cat, its so cute) has been sticking close by and they've been keeping her comfortable. Its just really hard on them because my aunt gave them this dog over 10 years ago and she passed away from cancer back in 2005 so to them, its like losing her all over again.

So now that I'm back at the bottom of the weekly roller coaster, me thinks I'll go but a power ball ticket and see if I can get myself back to the top of the hill :)

You have certaintly had a rough week my dear. (Hug). Glad Uncle had a good Doc this time. Sounds like someone with a brain and using it! Keep him! Sad about teh goggie, but it looks like all that can do done is being..not much one can do, much as we would like. Remind them that the Aunt would understand, and thank them for the many urs of love they gave to "her" dog. Obviously she knew they would. How many numbers in teh powerball? Try 697352.. Dunno w hy, numbers just popped into my empty noggin! :)

Not that he doesn't love me, but I don't leave him enough space when I lie on the couch.

Good to hear about your Uncle's liver, hopefully the rest can be managed.
You're right about bronchitis, it's a pain winter or summer, with luck you should be over it soon.
Sorry to hear about your grandparents' dog, but they are being a comfort for her at the end, just try to be a shoulder to lean on when it's over.

I just watched the linked video and I'm wondering about the head rubbing behavior that they described. Yes, I know it deposits a cat's scents on you but Snuffycat has a different use for it. Besides the scent depositing it's a "hey you, pay attention and follow me" behavior. It really comes into play if I'm sitting at the kitchen table and he wants to go out. He'll head butt my leg going away from the door then turn around and hit me again headed towards the door. If I ignore him he'll do it again and again until stupid me realizes he wants something. That something is about 95%
"let me out dad", occasionally it's "follow me to the bedroom and scratch me until I decide to bite you". I'd rather have Snuffers get my attention this way, Desi does it by reaching up and slowly sinking his claws into my leg!

Has the new electrical service installed this week. I thought I had corrected all the mickey mouse wiring except the hokey wanna-be 4 way switch that runs the rear spots. Never did work right and I just never got around figuring out what was up with it. Well, it turns out it was dual fed, and when they wired the new panel (adhering to code) each feed ended up on a different phase. It was quite a light show when they turned on the power. They got it straightened out but one of the switches is now offline, and of course it's the only one we really use.

I'm going to rough in the wire they need in order to correct it this weekend. It'll save me the cost of about 3 hours labor @ $85/hr.
Besides that everything else is now good.

Good evening, everybuddee!

Was absent last week, but was able to catch up a little on some of the bad news.

DDA, so sorry to hear about Kay.  Your tribute was lovely.  I hope that you're feeling a little better.  This is a good place to be when you need someone to talk to and listen.  {{{hugs}}}

The Ice Queen, I'm sorry about your uncle's diagnosis.  Hopefully, all goes well (and you start to feel better, too!)

Spinach Gunk, I thought I read that you were feeling sad.  If you posted somewhere why, and I missed it, I'm sorry.  I hope that happiness finds you well.

And Bathia Mapes, thank you AGAIN for the month of TF!!

Anyone else that I've missed who needs a hug, here's a giant one {{{{{{HUG}}}}}}!!

ANd now to catch up on the thread....bbl

Little Miss Andi gets to go in for spaying on Sunday since she finally got over the 2# mark. She's going to go insane from having to be chill for a few days but even as cute as she is, don't need any little Andis running around.

Actually, I think she's in the Meerkat stage or something, you now, tail straight up and bouncing around instead of running....

You remember the chihuahua that I was taking care of, right?
Yep, he's back! Dinky/Pedro/Damnit shat one too many times by the side of Dad's bed. He's banned. I told Dad that Dinky could stay with me during weekends and the nighttime, but he has to be at their house do he can play with Mom's dog during the day. He said that was fine.

Finally drove past the 3 osprey nests on 5 hydro poles I mentioned last week, with my camera in the car (!)
I could only get two of the nests in the same shot, there are some trees and a slight hill that conspire to obscure the third nest...

The closer nest was occupied when I pulled over, a bit away.  I tried to get closer to get a better shot and the bird took off..  I never did get a really clean shot, but did get these...

The Ice Queen: So this has been an up and down week.

First, for those who were here last week, uncle went in for another biopsy. This time, the surgeon (a new one thank you very much) decided to just go for the liver. His reasoning was, if we find the cancer there, it basically doesn't matter about the sites on the esophagus and lung. The good news is, the mass on his liver was a cyst so at least now we have a shot with chemo/radiation where as if it was cancerous, he was going to be sent home on palliative care plan. Not that having cancer on the other two locations are great but at least we have a better change of fighting and winning with those locations. If it was in his liver, we were basically screwed.

Then I catch bronchitis. Serious, its summer, you shouldn't get bronchitis in the summer.

Then I just got off the phone with mom, my grandparents' dog doesn't look like she'll make it through the night. She hasn't wanted to eat for a couple of days and today has done nothing but sleep. Her kitty (yes, she has a cat, its so cute) has been sticking close by and they've been keeping her comfortable. Its just really hard on them because my aunt gave them this dog over 10 years ago and she passed away from cancer back in 2005 so to them, its like losing her all over again.

So now that I'm back at the bottom of the weekly roller coaster, me thinks I'll go but a power ball ticket and see if I can get myself back to the top of the hill :)


That's good news about your uncle, hopefully his new and better doctor can help him beat this.

So sorry to hear about your grandparents' dog.  :(  Hugs to everyone involved there.

Sorry to hear about you being sick too.  Being sick in the summertime sucks, having bronchitis any time sucks even more!   Get lots of rest and take care of yourself so you're better soon.  Hopefully Caturday brings you some much-deserved comfort and cheer.

yobbery: Has the new electrical service installed this week. I thought I had corrected all the mickey mouse wiring except the hokey wanna-be 4 way switch that runs the rear spots. Never did work right and I just never got around figuring out what was up with it. Well, it turns out it was dual fed, and when they wired the new panel (adhering to code) each feed ended up on a different phase. It was quite a light show when they turned on the power. They got it straightened out but one of the switches is now offline, and of course it's the only one we really use.

I'm going to rough in the wire they need in order to correct it this weekend. It'll save me the cost of about 3 hours labor @ $85/hr.
Besides that everything else is now good.

Try this again, after sno man's excellent osprey shots & pretty good one of 2 of their nests.  If they nest like that over here, we haven't seen 'em.  Think they're other places than around here.

Semi sad day today...  Lil' Bit is back at the shelter - he was neutered today, and will be out on the floor tomorrow to look for the purrrfect person to take home.  Hopefully he won't be there long.  We are really gonna miss the little turd - it's far too quiet here tonight!

I'm thinking this particular display of licking behavior had more to do with washing up after dinner than stress!

The tummy rubs mentioned in the video?  Dinah and Theo don't want their tummies messed with (though that doesn't stop me - especially with Theo because he's got such a cute speckled tummy!) but Zara loves tummy rubs and will actually 'help' my hand to her tummy for scritches - she's adorable, but odd...

Sickapie: Spinach Gunk, I thought I read that you were feeling sad. If you posted somewhere why, and I missed it, I'm sorry. I hope that happiness finds you well.


Thanks, Sickapie.  My little Buddy's condition is slowly deteriorating.  He was doing a bit better last week but is not so good right now.  He's gone through days like this and bounced back nicely, but each time the period of good days in between gets shorter.  I don't want to think about You Know What just yet, but it's hard not to.  :(  I love him so much and it's so hard to see him not feeling very good.  This on top of my regular everyday anxiety and depression.  I'm allowing myself to smoke up to one cigarette a day to take the edge off.  So glad Caturday is here though.  Good laughs and good friends are immeasurable sources of comfort.

They put in two Eaton (Cutler-Hammer) panels. I stayed with the 100A service because (a). I didn't have the funds to upgrade right now and (b). I see no reason to upgrade. With everything....appliances, lighting...etc. going high efficiency I feel that 100A is plenty.

Good Furday morning, Caturdayians! I am in the middle of a building of cheap furniture project for my lair, so I will be a bit scarce for the day. When I am done, it should look like this:
ak1.ostkcdn.com
But with my stuff all over it, of course. I've got the bottom part done, but the top is going to be hard. It's been so difficult and there are so many pieces, I actually had to sleep on the couch last night as it's all organized and stacked neatly on my bed and I didn't want to disturb what passes for a system I've got going on with it right now. I'm really, really bad at this kind of thing, so everyone wish me luck!

I will catch up on the thread later, but wanted to say "Hooray!" for Ice Queen uncle's liver. Glad he's got a shot. I also wanted to leave this picture right here
www.ryot.org
That is a "quokka". They always look happy like that. They're indigenous to Australia (mostly the islands off the coast, I think) and I just learned of them yesterday. Apparently they have little fear of humans and so photo opportunities come easy. One Aussie was saying (typing) that she'd only heard of someone being bitten once, and that was because the person picked it up and tried to cuddle it. She wanted to remind us all that they are wild animals (I bet some people keep them as pets, though, but it was an older post so I couldn't ask and expect a reply). Now I want to travel to Australia. I guess having an entire continent full of things that are trying to kill you is balanced out by having the cutest, happiest looking critter EVER just roaming about, wherever they please.

Another quokka, smiling in its sleep:
t2.gstatic.com
Anyway, everyone have a great day! Hugs to those who need them, ear skritches to all the critters, high fives to those who've earned them and I'll catch up with you guize when I can!

Little Pie has had an amazing turn around.  Thanks for asking!  She is on meds and I credit that and her willingness to take it in the first place for it.  She is eating a ton of solid foods now.  We are still working on veggies and some more healthier foods, but I think we can accomplish that because it's all texture with her.  This is all in the past 2 weeks.  So proud of her!  Yay!

Sorry to hear that Buddy lost his appetite, with luck you can get him to eat a little something. Silly as it sounds have you tried some chicken soup. That used to work for my dog Baby.

Thanks, JB.

He's perked up slightly this evening but we still can't get him to eat anything.  :(

Will keep trying though.

Color me excited! I saw Jack the midnight dog today!
I went out to mail a letter and he was walking back to his house. I called to him and he turned and wagged his tail at me. I went back to the garage tied up Fiona, got a scoop of food and walked back towards him.
He barked loud like a shepherd and went into his old yard. I won't go in the gate so I called to him and he came about halfway down the driveway to me. He wagged his tail and when I knelt down and made kissy sounds at him his tail went into overdrive. He put his ears down, tail up, and I swear he smiled as he tipped his nose in the air to smell me. He looked over his shoulder at his old house as if trying to decide his loyalty to his old owners. They did not deserve this dog.
I have been leaving water out for him and all the animals as the temps are in the hundreds and only in the high seventies at night. He has not been in to eat the food I left out, the horses got it one night, but I think he is scared of the red flickering light on the critter cam. I hadn't seen him in a few days and thought he had crossed the bridge. He has been on his own for months, since his people up and left without him. I think it just a matter of time now, if I can catch him he may have to stay tied on the runner for a while until he learns not to chase kitties or eat my chickens. If I can't make him into a farm dog I will try to find a rescue to take him, he is old and needs to be a pet again. All I would ask of him is to bark when cars come in the yard and not kill the other animals on the farm.

maynerdkitty, if he agrees to get to know you, Jack the Midnight just could be  the Good Farm Dog you've sought, as you typed earlier.  You right, earlier Masters/Mistresses not worthy of title.

Karen Glardon, L, has multiple sclerosis & Parkinson's. Daughter Erin Blevins, R, is depressed with other psychological conditions.  Dogs Peanut, Corkee, Romeo, Little Man, Zoey, Sara & Maddie live with them to AbetAid&Assist with their Issues. Not sure which canines are in pic. City says 5 of those must be re-homed, unless the women get a kennel licence.
Consultant in Dept of Justice Civil Rights office says dogs are protected by Americans with Disabilities Act.  He's quoted in Enq article,  "(Glardon & Blevins) are 2 people with disabilities, & provided the house isn't a health hazard & dogs aren't keeping everybody awake at night ... I'd probably say the city of Fairfield needs to go suck an egg. I'd think that the mayor at this point would be smart enough to nback off of people with disabilities ."

Oooh! Gpiggies! We used to haz three! They do quite well in pairs. Go wrinkle a plastic lettuce bag and watch thier wee ears wiggle...And they don't bite...what kind of bedding do you have them on?

We did some research before we got them.  You're right, they do well in pairs; they're brothers.  Marshmallow did bite Little Pie a couple of times, but we think it's because he thought she had a treat and it was when we first brought them home.  He's a little more aggressive then his more shy brother.  We use the natural, unscented bedding.  Plus, I read that we need to use bottled water instead of tap water, and if bottled water can't be used, leave tap water out for 24 hours then use it to get all the chemicals out.

They are super cute when they "talk" to each other!  I'll be in Little Pie's room making her bed and listen to them chatter away.

I HAVE DEFEATED THE MORGAN CORNER COMPUTER DESK AND HUTCH!!! *insert insane cackling here*

Well, half way, anyway. I got the fiddly upper part built to go with the lower part, now I just need some muscle to lift and then hold them together while I bolt them in place. I'm quite proud of myself. Usually I am so very bad at such things, then factor in I would just die if I broke a nail and am therefore overly cautious/timid, and I'm beyond proud. I'm STUPID PROUD. I've actually just made myself a bowl of popcorn with cocoa/cayenne/powdered sugar with a touch of salt little concoction as a "thatagirl, fatty!" treat. Which is better than the brownie bites with caramel frosting I was considering making. Now we'll see if I'm as successful putting together the task chair when it gets here.

Now, a kitten being weighed, something I don't like either.

I want to apologize for my scarce time posting on Caturday. Real life jumped up and bit me in the ass again. So sorry to hear of all the sadz. Just know, even though I am lurking more than posting right now, I think of you all everyday, and want only the best for you.

The problem began when I started listing his good qualities.
He's a great snuggler, loves to play fetch and tug of war...and you've seen photos of him: he's just too dang cute for his own good.

Sickapie: spinach gunk: Sickapie: Spinach Gunk, I thought I read that you were feeling sad. If you posted somewhere why, and I missed it, I'm sorry. I hope that happiness finds you well.

Thanks, Sickapie.  My little Buddy's condition is slowly deteriorating.  He was doing a bit better last week but is not so good right now.  He's gone through days like this and bounced back nicely, but each time the period of good days in between gets shorter.  I don't want to think about You Know What just yet, but it's hard not to.  :(  I love him so much and it's so hard to see him not feeling very good.  This on top of my regular everyday anxiety and depression.  I'm allowing myself to smoke up to one cigarette a day to take the edge off.  So glad Caturday is here though.  Good laughs and good friends are immeasurable sources of comfort.

Buddy in the halcyon days of 2004

[spinachgunk.smugmug.com image 640x483]

How is Little Pie doing these days, by the way?  Hope the little sweetie's OK.

Aw.  Sorry to hear.  I completely understand about the You Know What.  And so does everyone here.  We're here for you.  It's so hard to see our little furbabies go through that.  Please give him gentle skritches from the Pie house and buttsniffs from Olivia.  {{{hugs}}}

Little Pie has had an amazing turn around.  Thanks for asking!  She is on meds and I credit that and her willingness to take it in the first place for it.  She is eating a ton of solid foods now.  We are still working on veggies and some more healthier foods, but I think we can accomplish that because it's all texture with her.  This is all in the past 2 weeks.  So proud of her!  Yay!


YAY for the Pie Family! Such good news for you all! I can't imagine how you worried about her during all this time.

The Ice Queen: Little Miss Andi gets to go in for spaying on Sunday since she finally got over the 2# mark. She's going to go insane from having to be chill for a few days but even as cute as she is, don't need any little Andis running around.

Actually, I think she's in the Meerkat stage or something, you now, tail straight up and bouncing around instead of running....

[i1210.photobucket.com image 768x1024]


well, thank goodness there are no more Andi's running around!!!!

Hi little namesake...you have no idea who the hell I am but I am a person who loves sweet kitties and puppies.  Which is why there are 5 kitties and 2 pups in my house.

good luck with your spay!

has been a craptastic week

- coworkers are upset that I have the word 'sr' in front of my title.  I have a freaking MBA and 30 years of telephony experience.  you have a high school diploma.  HR is looking at the new titles.  goody  I doubt it will go my way as the new company (we were acquired) layed me off 6 years ago.  F that.

- coworker who had a fit about my title got a call from her husband's work.  He was on the ground and could not move or feel legs.  He had surgery today to relieve the herniated disk.  she is freaked and scared and it is understandable.  I worry too.  I doubt it will change the 'tude towards me.

- I covered for the coworker who thinks a high school diploma trumps a college education.  F that! (see above comment)

- I'm tired.  I'm cranky (thus the name) and everyone drove like morons tonight when I came home.  A green light means you DRIVE, you do not coast, stop or any of that.  Drive that damned car.

I feel better now.

Right now I am very disappointed with our two cats. There is only one place they are not allowed, the kitchen table. They are allowed on the kitchen counter to "help" with food prep. For the first time in months, I got some take-out chicken (Church's, 14 pieces for $9 on special) rather than cook. Not only did they keep jumping up on the table (and being removed) the garbage can was knocked over during the night and the bones removed.

Several years ago, for a early grade school project where you had to do a "scientific" study, the kid and I decided to do a taste test of fast food chicken.
The cats were included in this. In order of preference (the kid and the cats agreed on this) Breading/coating was removed and dishes with small morsels put on the floor.

1) Popeyes spicy
2) Popeyes mild
3) church's mild
4) church's spicy
5) long John silver's chicken planks
6) local supermarket deli fried
7) banquet frozen chicken
8) deli rotisserie chicken (when I asked for one fried breast they were laughing so hard they gave me a chicken that had not sold that morning and was going to be used for chicken salad)

The kid wanted mcnuggets included, but I said that it was too mean to the cats.

Whenever we put down several bowls, the popeye's went first. No doubt about it. Everything the same (amount, room temp, etc).

Hugs and thanks to all for the good wishes for Buddy.  He's drinking water again this morning which is a good sign.  Twice today approached the fresh food in his dish and paused for thought before going to lie down again, which is more than he did yesterday.  I bought a yam and some fresh chicken thighs and will try to tempt him with those in a little while.  If no improvement by tonight, we'll get the vet to look him over tomorrow.  In the meantime he's enjoying a good nap under his blankie.

Woof

Could someone please remind me to scroll back, after Saturday morning, to vote this particular post as 'funny'?
Why is it, again, that TFs can't vote before the post 'breaks?
Hmmm, just wondering, Bathia_Mapes, is there a highest - ever voted smart/funny?

I_fling_poo, surely the reusable bags will launder with enuf disinfectant to remove the dog fluid?  Enuf soap, & bleach if needed, if that doesn't wreck the fabric. Was only a little surprised that Plumbicon didn't bring home HarmonyLodge laundry (white washcloths & small towels) from his numerous recent expeditions there.
tigerose, costumes are lurvly & handsome.  FangQ for fetching, FangQ lajimi for needed rotation. On a preceding page, am too lazy to go back & look.  But methinx, haven't you been able to caption?  If you've the wherewithal for that, under Image there ought be a Rotate item. New scanner that actually worx & doesn't bollix scans as old one did, at times requires scanned item to be set in so rotation will be needed.  Not difficult if you have it, quite frustrating if you don't.

Sickapie: Little Pie has had an amazing turn around. Thanks for asking! She is on meds and I credit that and her willingness to take it in the first place for it. She is eating a ton of solid foods now. We are still working on veggies and some more healthier foods, but I think we can accomplish that because it's all texture with her. This is all in the past 2 weeks. So proud of her! Yay!


Sooo glad to hear she's doing so much better!  Bravo to you, the doctor, and especially to the Little Pie herself!  :)

CrankyAndi: has been a craptastic week

- coworkers are upset that I have the word 'sr' in front of my title.  I have a freaking MBA and 30 years of telephony experience.  you have a high school diploma.  HR is looking at the new titles.  goody  I doubt it will go my way as the new company (we were acquired) layed me off 6 years ago.  F that.

- coworker who had a fit about my title got a call from her husband's work.  He was on the ground and could not move or feel legs.  He had surgery today to relieve the herniated disk.  she is freaked and scared and it is understandable.  I worry too.  I doubt it will change the 'tude towards me.

- I covered for the coworker who thinks a high school diploma trumps a college education.  F that! (see above comment)

- I'm tired.  I'm cranky (thus the name) and everyone drove like morons tonight when I came home.  A green light means you DRIVE, you do not coast, stop or any of that.  Drive that damned car.

I feel better now.


Are you sure you don't live in Columbus, that sounds like my drive every damn day this week!

Spinach gunk...I hope Buddy starts feeling better sooner-er!
Tigerose...you guize look AWESOME!
Sickapie....good news on Little pie!!! YAY for the small victories!
RWDA....good on you for getting that put together! I'm the same way with stuff like that!

Got a call from my mom this afternoon, my grandparents' dog passed away. Grandpa went up and buried her by the pond which makes me want to pound my uncles in the head (grandpa is 80 and has 1 arm, shouldn't have been doing that on his own but then again, I did the same thing for a cat, on Christmas).

My cousin works for a breeder/shower (she does Westminster and all of the big shows, you've probably seen her dogs if you watch the show). She also does some rescues and they got a male pom in that had basically lived in a crate for 3/4 of its life. Cousin has been working with him for a while, might see what they think of him.  Despite everything, he apparently is a snuggle bunny and loves cats/kids.

This is the dogi1210.photobucket.com. Usually not big on Poms (my prior experience with them have been demon dogs from hell) but the lady who runs the rescue I volunteer at has a couple of poms and they are as sweet as can be,

aww.so durn sad! Please send my condolences to Gma Nd Gpa..so sorry for their loss..I am sure teh goggie knew the effort it took to bury him with all rites and dignity. As I am sure he would seed his place to another, with estatic tail wags, and happy slurpy tongues. He knows what a good home feels like.

Well, that was weird!
I didn't see it, but it sounded like a big-ass jet plane flew just over my house. I'm about 15 miles from the airport and it was low enough to shake the house. No following 'boom', so I guess that's a good sign?

That reminds me of one time when I was coming home from a visit to Mt. Rainier. The military LOVE to fly through the canyons and stuff up in the mountains...good terrain training. Anyway, was coming down the hiway on a 2-lane road next to a very deep canyon on my right....looked over after something caught my eye. An f-plane was cruising down the canyon right at eye level! Scared the crap out of me! And then he went straight up....and left. AWESOME!

yobbery: OlderGuy: yobbery: Has the new electrical service installed this week. I thought I had corrected all the mickey mouse wiring except the hokey wanna-be 4 way switch that runs the rear spots. Never did work right and I just never got around figuring out what was up with it. Well, it turns out it was dual fed, and when they wired the new panel (adhering to code) each feed ended up on a different phase. It was quite a light show when they turned on the power. They got it straightened out but one of the switches is now offline, and of course it's the only one we really use.

I'm going to rough in the wire they need in order to correct it this weekend. It'll save me the cost of about 3 hours labor @ $85/hr.
Besides that everything else is now good.

[www.smugmug.com image 500x500]

Square D breakers.. good ones.... and hope that,s a temp cover......

LOL...that's not mine...it's a redneck repair pic I found on the internet. (good lord you'll never find anything like that in my home)

They put in two Eaton (Cutler-Hammer) panels. I stayed with the 100A service because (a). I didn't have the funds to upgrade right now and (b). I see no reason to upgrade. With everything....appliances, lighting...etc. going high efficiency I feel that 100A is plenty.

...and a cat.
[www.smugmug.com image 400x240]


Cutler Hammer is good.. this house came with a 100 amp service..  water heater and furnace are gas.. don't use the clothes dryer.. conditioned basement with a dehumidifier.. hang the clothes on the gas pipe and other locations... 2-3 hours and everything is dry.. only thing that uses 220 volts is the AC outdoor unit..... no need to upgrade to 200 amps....  and soooo glad that was not your panel....

This afternoon I had the opportunity to finally meet my grandson who was born on April 3rd.
My youngest daughter and her husband live almost 200 miles away and prior to this, I haven't had
the chance to go visit them nor have they visited me in the interim.

May I introduce you to my first and only grandson, Ari.

Olderguy guess that panel made your hairs stand on end? We had a guy in who did not know to ground the new box. We put his tools outside and told him not to return..geez..he did not know standard electrical sketches! Hubby made this fellow a diagram for every outlet to be installed. Height, distance..to code..Not one was correct. That was the Summer frm hell.
