I'm beginning to look back a little fondly on my recent days in retail, resetting steel racks. Twice and thrice, because the plan changed five times. (I usually waited two of the revisions out.)
The sole project is coming along. I had allotted two days. This is my third day, and I will be lucky to finish in the next two
BUT FIRST (see the little white part under the grid?) I had to replace a water valve for the port fresh water tank when I just TOUCHED it and it started leaking. This took three trips into Oriental to accomplish.
Oh, and I bled on Carol's new cushions, which annoyed her no end. She did forgive me, as blood was shed while reworking the floors, which have annoyed her even more.
For the cleats, I am using machine screws, through drilled, with fender washers and lock nuts along with glue to reinstall them. I do believe in the "belt AND suspenders" theory.
When I just could not spend any more time on my knees, I revisited an old nemesis.
And, while the day has been long and hard, at the end of it, I'm NOT doing a retail store close.
