You justify your purchases to your spouse by saying “It’ll only take me xx inspections to pay for it”.

I’m reading through the posts, nodding my head (except for Jeff’s…we’re happy where we are), and I get to Jason’s. Our old TV died the day after Christmas. Two days later. without any argument from the wife, a 46" DLP HDTV. Does this make me one of dem Home Spekters?

Still only a few HD channels, but the picture on those that are (see photo) is amazing.

Hey, I'm happy where I am. I would just be happier in a nicer, bigger home ![icon_biggrin.gif](upload://iKNGSw3qcRIEmXySa8gItY6Gczg.gif) with a pool and spa!!

Yes it's true. We're in the process of "upgrading" our living conditions. Our home is on the market and we're actively looking for our next home. All I see in these beautiful homes is the extra 15k to 20k I'll need to make 'em right.

You go to a friends house for dinner and comment on the fact that the doors are out of square and there are cracks in the corners.

LOL...I guess to be really truthful, I'd be happier in a nice secluded oceanfront property on the Kona coast of Hawaii, preferably with room for a full size pool tabe (my vice), and a pair of perfectly spaced trees to hang a hammock. Might as well make it a private beach too. I'll pay the 15k to 20k to fix it up if someone wants to buy me the rest. ![icon_biggrin.gif](upload://iKNGSw3qcRIEmXySa8gItY6Gczg.gif)

Your client asks if your tremors are caused by a neurological disease and you politely say, " No, could you please hit breaker 13 in the sub-panel."


Please don't take this as politically incorrect, I have essential and orthostatic tremor. We have to be able to joke about our personal defects.

Forget about the pool. Just go for the spa and then make friends with lots of other people who have pools so one of them will invite you over for a pool party each day of the week. Pool maintenance is just too much hassle.

Naah, piece of cake. ![icon_cool.gif](upload://oPnLkqdJc33Dyf2uA3TQwRkfhwd.gif) Once you get a routine down, it's easy. The key is to have a good pool supply store near by that will test the water for free when you have something funky going on.

Check out a fresh water aquarium test kit ( top of the line , of coarse). Makes the pool stuff look silly.

Nope. I've been through seven pool/spas now and two boats. Just not worth it. The largest pool was here in San Diego at 45,000 gallons with a 10,000 spa with a to-die-for view of the Mexican mountains. I got a great routine down, and the pool supply store was a mile away. I still spent all my spare time cleaning the pool and spa, refilling it because of evaporation, and buying enough chemicals to start my own chemical factory.

Now I have more money and have lots of friends who have some really nice pools in the mountains, overlooking the ocean, etc. Now I have fun. Just have to make some margaritas occasionally, some jalapeno nachos, or some Texas barbecue.

And I have fun, fun, fun 'til the margarita bottle is dry.

Do you have that reversed? My pool test kit makes my fresh water aquarium test kit look silly. Now my salt water test kit is a different story.

I've said that about an attic before. ![icon_lol.gif](upload://zEgbBCXRskkCTwEux7Bi20ZySza.gif)

...and some basements.
