    Smokes. What good do they ever do? Nothing in them rebuilds your body. I can't put them back down yet but I am getting to like my life more so that may be helpful in getting rid of them again. Or lose another organ.

    I quit 46 years ago, just threw the pack away, never bummed or bought another since. Hardest part for me was to want one after a meal or when co-workers lit one up. However that eventually went away with time.

    Made the biggest mistake of my life today. Got super lucky to even walk away.

    Was working on a large chiller on a compressor burn out. System holds 100s of LBs of refrigerant. So I'm going to change out the compressor. To do so I was going to hook up my gauges to pump the compressor down and evacuate the refrigerant. I wasn't thinking and set the valve wrong. I front seated the valve instead of back seating it. Screw off the cap and then a huge POP. Oil and refrigerant at 125psi coming out. Instantly covered in oil. So I'm running around the boiler room looking for a wrench. All I could find was a large crescent wrench and start cranking on the valve. Oil and refrigerant are spraying all over me. All I'm breathing in is refrigerant and the room is starting to fill up. I run out. Stupidly run right back in and keep cranking on the valve. Now I'm starting to see stars and blacking out. Finally get it shut off and run for the exit. As I'm running to the exit I'm starting to go blank and down. Make it out and catch myself on a table. Sit there for about 15 minutes and realize that right next to where I was working were large water heaters. If they turn on it could create phosgene gas from the refrigerant. Run back in and turn on the boilers since they have a very long purge time. Shut them off before they light and keep doing this. Finally it sucked all the refrigerant out of the room.

    Walk up out of the basement completely covered in oil and told the owner I'm going home. Then called the shop and explained what happened.

    I still cant believe how stupid and lucky I was.

    Glad you're ok, davy. It's a mistake if you do it once. Twice draws the line. You did the right thing by shutting it down.

    Thanks. Refrigerant only turns to phosgene gas when it hits a flame. This didn't hit any flame so it was just refrigerant which displaces oxygen. When you are burning in a new compressor sometimes you get a small whiff of phosgene and it nocks you on your ass, this didn't happen this time.


    The old man showed up this morning to give me a hand. As usual he acted like it was no big deal. We got the compressor in and are good to go. Should be cooling by 9 tomorrow.

    Should finish the Frankindeck Monday or Tuesday. I spent 1.5 days hand grading the high side here. Rock laden dirt was about 7 inches above grade and had to be flattened out. Also dug a trench mid span on the wide section there placing a double 2x6 gurt halfway on the 13 foot span.

    The deck extends almost 50' across the back then steps up again to another deck (4x12) coming out the master bed door. Total of 5 sets of steps and 2 gates on this joker.

    Pic here of the 10x18 coming off the sunroom.

    Enjoyed the challenge on this project here, was tuff going, +105 head index all last week, thought pops might croak a few times and we had some short days as we were just beat from it.

    Will get some better shots when we finish.

    Andial , if you are bored , there is always the option of joining the Cork Soakers Union.
    It's better than just looking at some guys deck.
    Decks don't interest me. I wouldn't know a good deck from a bad deck.
    Now fish is a different story.
    Fishing for red snapper keeps me busy.

    lol,
    Very astute observation sir. Yep all perimeter post are notched, looks and carries gooder imho.

    We may be overworked and board Andial but we're youngish and were studs, remember that Mr. We could log off and get a life just any ole tyme we took a notion.

    Tried and failed at fixing the gf's ac on her van today. Fecking low pressure side pegged out my gauge at 350psi, that ain't right. Having it looked tomorrow.

    Drivers side window quit rolling down awhile back, did manage to fix that today with a whole new assembly.

    Told her I couldn't get the air to blow cold but that she could roll down the window now and catch a nice cool breeze, man if looks could kill.

    A for effort, stonedy. Give ya credit for trying. The a/c system in my van is a 2 x 45. Both windows down at 45 mph. Not acceptable to some but I can handle it very well.

    That reminds me, if you have a spare car door, you should bring it to work. That way if it gets too hot you can roll down the window.

    Decided we need a bi partisan investigation of hammerheads joke material going back two years. Who supplied him with his material,when they did it, and if any monies or foreign governments were involved will be the main focus of the investigation.

    Didn't you hear from Crying Lying Sir Dial? I am not under investigation. But yeah, she is a lovely, stern talking beautiful Russian girl. I've got a whole army of them.
