Gettin too old for ladders

Dear gawd. Replaced an overhead light in one of my daughterís room & fixture was thinner which meant screwing in bracket screws further. But no room between bracket &!ceiling plate. Tried a few diff screws and finally found some to fit & were shorter

One hour later...

Whereís the beer?!

13. Have you tried Rum Chata?

It's cinnamon, cream and rum. Just sip one shot at a time.

3. Glad you didn't get hurt! An emergncy room doctor I know said that aside from Covid cases, their

number one thing now is people falling off ladders, cuttig a finger with a saw, or other problems associated with home fix-up. Everybody is being their own handyman with their downtime.

5. Oh. That reminds me

Need to get the stepladder into the attic

A new antenna came in and I want to swap it out and see if I get NBC and Fox better now. I usually get one or the other barely. Or fully at the cost of lesser signal strength on ABC and CBS. Stupid Orlando towers
