I found these pictures taken from the bridge of my last ship when I was overseas. The sea waves were 15' to 20' that day, it made the forward berthing area an anti-gravity chamber at times!

And here's how you go from 7' ceilings to 10' ceilings in your basement.

I never understood why someone would go with such low ceilings in a basement or crawlspace. I know someone who had a crawlspace foundation 5' tall. I asked, why didn't you just make it 78" and then you could stand up all the way and not kill your back. He didn't have an answer...

All I could do was face palm.

I used to take both of our greatnephews to preschool and we really bonded. Before that we did animal rescue. Even before that I would take care of my mom n law as the Alzheimers took her. Now I have absolutely NO responsibilities what so ever. We have an exercise section in the basement where I store all the parts for my truck I order. When itz above 55-60 I'm usually in the garage working on some project. The projects have gotten to the point I will have to be fabricating parts to finish things so I bought a couple of machines for that. I want to use a longer pan hard bar on the 4 link and put a pair of triple adjustable coilovers in the front like I have in the rear. Even a roll cage comes to mind. I don't like the links in the 4 link so I'll be welding up a custom set. Gotta install the headers and the Mallory capacitive discharge ignition. Saving up to build another engine also. I learned enuff at Holley carb to do my own tuning on anything so when the engine is done that will be another project. EFI isn't as ez as a carb's fuel curve but it iz challenging. [/QUOTE] @kaboom10 Wow...Sounds like a good deal and sounds like it will keep you busy. It is good you know how to do all of your own engine work too.

The last one was probably one of the best even if all I did was weed whack for 8 hrs a day lol but the best was when I got to use the machines like these. One of the best jobs I've had. Kinda funny my boots were green after a week or two pictures but now they're pretty much black after the summer.
@cptBudd Thanks for sharing. Glad you liked your job. Looks like you had an opportunity to operate all kinds of equipment. Cool.

Ha ha...cool. I like the view for the augers, but you can keep the one for driving in bad weather. I drove 18 wheelers for 14 years or so and I have drove in snow storms and all. I do not miss that either.

@RajunCajun84 Thanks for sharing. That is cool. And that monitor is labeled Hot...LOL
5 years now. but somehow halfway up the seniority chain.

I did a reno on a house built in the 50's. The upstairs floor had 6 ft ceilings. It was weird. I've never seen ceilings that low. All the furniture was built in and part of the walls. The home owner wanted to keep the 2nd floor original aside from paint, crapets and repairs. Creepy as hell up there. Felt haunted.

That is me in the red helmet getting the initial recon and quick fixes on a acrylic acid roll over on I-75 in Michigan this past Spring. I went as part of the county hazmat team, but also joined my ERT from work for the longer duration. With my new job, I could just take a picture of my desk, but that is not exciting or different.

My brain is messed up... My first thought when I read explosive K9's was dogs that explode... Not dogs that find explosives....
