Check out Home Depot. I have a kinetico brand. There is also Hague. Those are the big ones around here.
Yeah Joe, I reckon we got it around the same time we got YouTube 😂

Nah we don't need anything like that, we don't have a lot of limestone etc in the ground, we're all bluestone or volcanic rock so I assume that's why we don't need it.

I tried to get my carrier to do that once. She was the wife of a guy I worked with and I thought she would be willing to do a little something extra. You'd think I was asking for her virtue or something. It never happened.

The postal people around here act like they are doing you a favor by even talking to you.

They actually wrote me a note asking if I could make the letterboxes higher because I built up the driveway they couldn't reach them from their car.
Maybe that's why they are helping me because I helped them?

I cant remember what brand our softener is but we rent ours through a local company. I believe it’s $25/3 months and If we have an issue we call and they’re usually out the next day.

16í C.C. LT. Since buying it tinted the windows, full floor Weather Techs, factory clone side steps, Boost tow mirrors, and cranked the front end up a little to clear 275/75r17s. Thatís all sheís getting for now, got too much warranty left to delete it...yet.

I noticed the water level was higher than normal once the salt level got down. I have an overflow tube going out the back that the brine water would drain out of.

Look into a Water Boss. Mine is pushing 20 years old and just now needed a little TLC. Both families that lived there before me were families of 5. They are in the $400 - $500 range and easy to install if you have any DIY capabilities. They are made here in Ohio, practically in Joe's backyard.

I put in this mailbox a few years ago. It is made of cast aluminum and you can add sections on the post to raise it higher. My mail carrier drives a jeep which sits higher than a car so I added a section or two to raise it up higher. I think the USPS here has standards at what height it should be. I know they kept complaining about our old mailbox being too low.

It wasn't cheap by any means. Seems like it was something like $500 or less. The base has set screws as does the sections. The base is attached to a piece that I put into a bucket of concrete. I then buried the bucket at the ground level and packed gravel around it. If I need to ever move it all I need to do is unscrew the set screws on the base and lift the bucket out and move it.

Looks like I'll be clearing more room in the shop building again. I couldn't pass on this '89 Cadillac Fleetwood d'Elegance mafia car. The original owner was a bookee. The trunk looks clean. I just about got my hands on a '84 with e red velour interior. The owner decided to give it to relative. I only sell to relatives. LOL
