    Specialists

    If you've never been privy to this one its a old classic.

    Less need such sage advice than perhaps we use to have, but still some good points if you're so inclined to take it. I know the doors on all the ones we built opened out and he makes a good point about them opening in to facilitate gettin some air while the business is goin on. The main downside to that is that you need to make the whole assembly a bit larger. We delt with it by fastening a string on the door so's you could hang onto it incase you saw someone heading your way.

    OK you got me all primed for my "specialist" activity---Having a good chuckle, a good snack, some coffee, and a night's sleep.

    Enjoy,
    JimB

    Thanks Ryan!
    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    I figured you'd enjoy it Jim, even if no one else did.

    Jim wasn't the only one who enjoyed it, Ryan. Some profound thinking in that one, for sure.

    Some say the land of milk and honey; others say the land of fruits and nuts. All together my sort of heaven.

    Power is not taken. It is given. Who have you given yours to? Hmmmm?

    I remember the privies down on the farm from my youth... don't remember ever having one that was painted and usually the seat was just a board with a hole cut in it... after a few minutes contemplating my business, the edges would start to cut into the back side.... and along with the wasps, there was usually spiders and on some occasions a snake or two... and that will definitely put one off from the business at hand.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
