Well It's been a month to the day since I sold the blue OCC.  So I celebrated by spending 2 hours in the DMV to get a plate for Ruby.  
I bought her back from my son about 6 months ago.  She's a bit more worse for the wear than when I let her go but,   until I get the T56 installed she'll suffice.

I got her legal in the nick of time too.   My new bathtub arrived at Home Depot this afternoon.  Didn't want to put in the trunk of the Caddy ha ha ha.

First order of business tomorrow is clean out the back of the wagon (I need to sell this set of black 17s!) so I can fit the tub in there.

Avatar is most recent pic.

For those on FB, you've seen my bathroom photos. I'm currently down to the studs and company is coming on Monday, lol!

Don't you love the Florida DMV? When I got a Florida driver's license last year it took 2 hours. In most states you just surrender your current valid driver's license from the other state, and get a new one. I brought my passport, birth certificate, old license, and last year's taxes. The people were nice, but good lord, it was more thorough than getting a passport. Oh well, all the illegals in Florida I guess. Good luck on the bathroom. Been there, done that many times. Can't wait to come to Florida after Thanksgiving, by the way. It's 18* and cloudy here. It's going to be 80* later today at the beach. Wish I was there now!

I live in a small town in Southeast Indiana. The license branch is only open three days a week. The people there are very nice. Wait times are rarely over five minutes. Going there is actually fun.

I went to the license branch today and got a new plate, title application, etc. It took less than ten minutes. I told the lady about the nightmare most people suffer in other locations and we all had a good chuckle. They appreciated that I appreciate how nice they are. Honestly, it was fun!

Is your house on a slab or a crawl space? Either way, no fun for a bath tub.

i still have some of it, lol.   Right when they stopped the sale to the general public I bought a 30 lb can for about 200 US.  I've used about 5 lbs out of it.   I figure I have a lifetime supply for me anyway, lol.
