Today I spent 5 hours in our local diabetes center while they sorted out my medication.

Different thing - the Seattle AIDS Walk will be in September.  This was the Seattle Pride Parade which happens in June.

@ Aaron
Hope you had a good time. If you make a trip to Copenhagen on August the 18-22 you can take part in the Copenhagen Pride Festival. It is usual a big event for those who take part in it. ;) :shock:

Stained the floor of our deck.  Got hot to finish it.  So back on it in the morning.

I wonder what R-C did today?

Not sure what R-C did today but we Netty and I had a day of well deserved rest.

Now what did [username] get up to today.

Bought a remnant carpet from one of the big box Home Improvement stores, all wrapped up and ready to go.  12' by 19', the label said.  Perfect for the room.  :mitch:  Needed 11' by 18'.  Half price.  Such a deal.  :dance:  Brought it home and put it out on the patio where I could work on cutting it in the shade.  It was hot.  Hit 100oF.  Cleaned out the room and washed up the floor.  Made careful measurements, as I planned to just lay the carpet wall to wall with no tack boards to hold it in place.  Went outside and rolled out the carpet.  Hey! Thats no 19 feet.  :thud:  Don't those idiots at the Home improvement store know how to measure?  :smash:  My tape showed it was an inch less than 17 feet.  What's that big old tear doing along the edge?    :blink:  This carpet is damaged.  Wouldn't have purchased it if it was labeled 'damaged'.  Wouldn't have purchased it if it was labeled "12 by 17"  Too short.  But the room is cleaned out and ready for a new carpet.  What to do?  :uhm:  If I take it back, do all that work and just get a refund, I'm back to zero.  Then I'd probably have to pay full price for the carpet I need.  If I keep the carpet and patch a piece on the end that I cut off the side, maybe it won't show too bad if it's under some furniture.  I chose the latter.  With duct tape in hand, I added the extra six inches of carpet near the far wall.  The nap is in the wrong direction, but the desk and a file cabinet hide most of it.  Now to run back to that Home Deprovement store and complain about being shortchanged on the carpet and the damage to the edge.  Grabbed a set of keys on my way out the door that had a house key recently made at the same store.  They were nice in the customer service department and without question refunded 20% of the cost of the rug.  It took four employees to figure out the amount I should get back, but they finally did it.  So I go home feeling a bit annoyed that I had to make-do with the short, damaged carpeting, for which they only reduced the price for the part I didn't get and couldn't use because it was damaged.  Then I tried to get into my house and that damnable key that they made for me a while ago and it didn't work!   :smash:  Pardon me, Lord, for making the air turn blue, but it's hot as Hades, I just got snookered with carpeting that was not what the label stated, (slow moving, my arse), and the dimwits can't even make a key that fits.   :smash:   :winchesty73:  I think I'll go back to that Home Deprovement store and ask if I can test drive one of their forklifts.  I know exactly where I'll aim it.....
