About half the new cabinets are in place, some adjustments still needed, no major wrinkles.  Hope to get stove in place today, maybe, and operational?  I assume I need to fire up the oven with nothing in it for a while first.

The doors and sliders seem to work well, most of the cabinets have drawers inside.  Design looks to be fine, look is what wife wanted, plain gloss white with no hardware.  The sink won't be in for a while though.  I really miss having a sink.  We're washing dishes in the half bath small sink.

Took wife out to local French restaurant.  Their service suffers on days like this one.  They have to bring in extras who are not as well trained.

I remember being excited when the cabinets were going in. That took a few days, and then NOTHING happened for about 10 days after. The counter guy would not measure until the cabinets were in, which I understood. But the 10 days from the measure to the install were long. I think maybe he was too busy.


After counter install, it was only a matter of a few more days to completion, with backsplash, lighting, sink, etc.
U RAH RAH! WIS CON SIN!

Yeah, the slab of quartz is already bought.  It's now measure and cut and hope it's right.  The back splash is the same quartz apparently.

I can see that taking a week or so.  After that the final push.

We met this couple who are friends with the wife at Cheesecake Factory for lunch, a place I found to be typical of chains, boring, edible, but boring.  Anyway, every story they tell starts out "We know a lawyer who is about 50, maybe 55, or maybe not ..." "Are you talking about Bill?"  "No, Doug, how old is he?"  "I don't know, but I do know Bill just turned 55.  Doug is older I think."  "Maybe he is 58 t"en.  Anyway, Doug's son who is about 30..."  "No, Jim is 34."  " I didn't know he was 34.  Anyway, his son Jim was on vacation on a cruise, I think it was a Carnival Cruise ..."  "No, it was Norwegian, I think.".

It becomes painful, but it's over.

There is that one certain beauty of having lunch at a chain, with people you'd rather not be with. Lunch goes really fast at chains.

Off for President's Day today, so I'm making beer... Just a simple hoppy blonde ale, since I have basically run dry of homebrew...

Given the holiday, my thanks to Jimmy Carter who signed the bill in 1978 making this legal. I'd probably do it anyway if it were illegal, but it's certainly better that it is lol...

I'm thinking you should also give a shout out to Jimmy's brother Billy.

Well, honestly I tend not to glorify presidents. I recognize that the hard work was done by a lot of people to even get a legalization bill in front of Congress, and Congress had to pass it. All Jimmy had to do was sign it. 
But in our world, for that he gets the credit for doing it, right? 
(I do highlight that I was born in 1978, so I know there's something about this "Billy Beer" thing, but I don't really know much about Billy Carter. I barely know anything about Jimmy Carter. I actually went to the Reagan Library on Saturday, which was really interesting because although I "grew up" with him as President, I was 10 at the end of his term, so it's hard to say that I have any real conception of Reagan...)

Cabinets going in fast now and a few counters.   Though the showstopper were the beams in the living room ceiling this past week

presidents are like QBs, get more credit or blame than they deserve
if "our world"  is anything like what I see on facebook....... credit is shoveled to whomever suits your cause
some would credit congress or another source, some would credit the president

Uhh, someone wanna tell ESPN that AAFL football is a sport and should be covered by them?  Petty PoS.

They stopped covering the NHL the day they dropped covering it, so I'm not sure why anyone expected them to cover this.  In fairness, do they cover MiLB or the G League either?
