Things That Suck

I think I have found a something that sucks right up there with cancer, fried liver, and Keanu Reeves acting ability. This sucky something is grinding a scarf joint along the edge of the deck that was removed. This will allow me to be able to lay new layers of cloth down that will mechanically 'tie' the new skin in with the old.

It took a lot longer than I thought (maybe the grinder was dull) and it just throws itchy dust everywhere. The only saving grace was that the old Makita 4" angle grinder works great as always.

An added note was that last night we were supposed to change the clocks and move them forward an hour. I thought my wife had done it and she thought I had done it (neither of us did). To make a long story short, my wife was out for a run and wasn't around so I had to jump in the car to take my daughter down to a birthday party right after finishing grinding. Even with a full face mask respirator and a tyvek suit, I was still covered in itchy dust. I'm sure the other mother's at the dance studio (where the birthday party was) were less than impressed.
