Pretty informative edition for Tile Letter. In the back (NTCA Family Album) is Tom Hambrock (Hammy) and wife Jeanette. Looks like Hammy is trying to dance. It might just be a pose, though. :)

Also, the ad on page 65. Does that look like a Schluter drain in the Tile-redi shower floor? Wonder how they did that. Pretty tricky, eh? ;)

Article page 52. While I agree the method used was atrocious, "spot bonding" did not cause the problem. The installation would have failed because of the primer (on slick tiles) no matter how the thin-set was applied. It appears also that the spots were not burned into the tiles, or the thin-set was stale or just plain inadequate. :)

Call the NTCA and ask for another one. They will send you another copy. Talk to Jim and mention what happened, and that i suggested you call them and get an additional copy.

John B i am proud of the pictures of the young ladies and man in the picture, as those are my children. I know they take after their mother, i was there for a short period of time. We have raised three wonderful children that we adore.

FYI. John Cox

Oops, just looked back. Sorry, John. I missed that those good looking kids were yours. Your wife must be a knock-out, and I'm sure the kids favor her. :D

Nice Recovery John! She is a wonderful woman, especially tolerating me for 35 years. This year we will celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.

Sonja Henig's Tutu! You're telling us the woman knew you for five years and married you anyway? :D

I will never tell on what was the determining factor. Maybe my B.S.? Maybe we will never know? She is a saint i will confirm.
