Wayne Love that shower photo, got a good laugh outta that one. The vise grips aren't much to look at, but they're functional.

Tim that shower is gross. I know it wasn't built right because its leaking and its only three years old but it looks like it wasn't cleaned in three years, my driveway is cleaner than that shower. Make it pretty, hopefully they'll keep it that way this time.

We stopped for lunch the other day at a DQ and was eating when Sam started laughing and told me to check out the pattern on the wall. Setters must have started on each end and met in the middle.

It never ceases to amaze me how lazy people can be. That shower probably has not been cleaned since the day it was put in.

I did a bathroom in a condo a few years back.. The owners daughter lived there by herself. 2 years later the owner hired me to do the kitchen, and I couldnt believe how gross the shower had become in a mere two years. I scrubbed it clean myself before I finished the kitchen project. I'm sure the daughter hasn't cleaned it since.
