Hey I can picture myself in a wheelchair swinging a detector, so the bicycle idea doesn't look so bad.

(of course I would see about making a detector holder for it )

It's not "auto dig", but maybe attach something like this ?

Actually that's Jim Carrey's head on PeeWee Herman's body (what a combination ! ), and I was looking for a goofy look to add a funny effect to the comic, and Jim Carrey can sure come up with some goofy looks !

To get our farmhouse remodel finished and move in! It's getting close, having worked every day without fail since September. Got the exterior finished, new roof, new windows, new sheet rock throughout, new plumbing, electrical, insulation, and HVAC, and just yesterday I installed the new bamboo flooring in part of it, a bit more to go tomorrow. Painting inside, trim, then the kitchen and second bathroom and we'll be done. Sheesh... I hope we get there by Christmas!

It probably almost feels like you built a whole new house

Hope you get done before Christmas, if not, take a Christmas break, you earned it !

And Santa, most importantly let there be peace and ah, never mind.
I want my Equinox and better shoulders that don’t grind.
Could you throw in a 6” coil for the EQ!
Then let that coil swing over all the gold too.
Please Santa, I think you get the gist.
If you can’t remember what I want, then I’ll text you a list.

Merry Christmas

Yes I have, and yes it does. It's pretty much a new house now but holy cow, the work involved has just about done me in lol...

If we don't get in by Christmas I'll probably have an old fashioned temper tantrum, not that it would do me any good but I might feel better afterwards
