Spent the last two days in Bastrop, Tx doing some volunteer cleanup after the wildfire a month ago. Looked like a soot monkey.

Used skid steers to clean off slab foundations. Houses burnt so hot that the whole thing was only about 8 inches thick of debris. Only the sheetrock and metals left.

Dropping 120 ft pine trees so they can rebuild or whatever they are going to do. Man, that makes a thud when it hits the ground.

Keep these people in your mind. They've lost a lot. Could be you or I in one way or another.

Now off to bed to get some rest

Spent six hours today ,cutting out existing 60 year old tile down to the mud ,on both sides of a shower jamb. Tile inside bath dry area adjoining the cut out tile was original, with rounded over outside corners. Breaking an existing adjoining tile was not an option . If I had broken one of those originals when cutting the jamb tile , my name would be mud.
Grinder ,4" diamond dry tile blade , 1/4" drill bit for the six corners not reachable by the grinder.
Felt like a fourteen hour day .
Not as exhausting as the time I had to cut nine 3 1/2 inch holes in a brand new looking, ninety year old white marble floor .
