So you opened the safe, as reported in a post in another thread. What was in the safe? The enquiring mind needs to know.

Nada. Just like Geraldo. It was fun tearing it apart, though. I got to find out how they are made, had a little drama with the asbestos scare and now get to hump the dagone heavy thing to the landfill. The rattling sound from the inside that I thought might be some of our stuff turned out to be the package of bolts they include so you can bolt it to the floor. Also the desicant packages they include (for some reason).

Now I have to figure out something else to do with my copious amounts of spare time. Hmmm...the legs on that table look uneven.

Ah, so that's how a retiree spends his typical day.

Reminds me of one of my summer exploits when I was 14-yr old. We had a refrigerator that went kaput, but my father had not gotten around to get rid of. So, one summer day, I decided to see what the inside of the refer compressor looked like. I spent a day with a hacksaw to cut the top of that compressor off to satisfy my curiosity.

In my life, I have taken many things apart. I am getting old and have been slowing down though.
