We have been doing that on and off for the last few months.
Mine are somewhat organized, but I have a decade worth that need to be gone through to delete many, then edit the rest, then post the best to my hosting site. I would guess I have 10 days of full time work to get this done.

Got a professional painter doing the stucco high up on our house.Some repairs on same.Will paint the lower part myself, cedar siding.Not climbing ladders anymore, wife won't let me anyway.
Roofer coming to fix flashing by the chimney.Rock retaining walls always needs some fixing.I go and sit in the trailer once in a while, just dreaming.Fence could use power washing and paint.
With an old house (53 years) it is always something to do.However would be going stir crazy in an condo.When this Corona thing is over we would like to go north in BC.The Rockies are calling me.

If you can swing that massive thing effectively, it shows how much you know. If you can't...

Hammers are important, and will definitely work good at opening beer, but they are usually put away when the beer comes out.

Well, I would agree a good hammer, especially one that feels just right in ones hand should be a much respected ...... in our last house I installed hardwood ( 1 1/4x3/4") in three bedrooms, two hallways, two staircases and living room with my good hammer, the old-fashioned way with hardwood nails ( Wolf just cuts- I am a bit of a power tool phob - especially saws- aside from drills) ...in this house I just did a smallish area by hand then decided it was time to learn to use a pneumatic nailer...it was cool - the only power tool I did better with than Wolf.

Okay then, you can sit with Jasper and supervise. Peter, my youngest grandson was helping me a lot yesterday. He is 18 now..... months that is.
I'm not so good at sitting......pretty sure young Peter will keep you on your toes ....

I bought a 24 oz non Estwing when I started building my addition 25 years ago, couldn't hit a thing with it then and I'm sure I couldn't now. Still have it though.
