1. When we moved, I made sure to pack all the Scotch Tape . . .

duct tape, masking tape and so many other types of tape.

How did I manage collect so many pressure sensitive tapes over the 17 years in that old house.

2. Duct Tape is like "The Force"

It has a light side, a dark side and binds the universe together....

3. My life would be ... falling apart without The Force



Seriously, I'll get around to fixing everything before the duct tape gives out.

5. LOL big time.

I have flaming duct tape holding the overhead strobe lighting wires inside my escort car.

Pink duct tape keeping the outside AC dry for the winter.

Green duct tape holding the heavy duty extension cord in place for my heated birdbath.

and on and on . . . .

6. I found some tie-dyed pattern duct tape

at Michael's a couple of years ago. Bought some for my daughter, she just rolled her eyes then. She did find it handy when Sandy was rolling through her area last year.

7. Thanks for the reminder.

I haven't gone back to the kitchen since I started the coffee. [img][/img]

I hope your daughter made it through the storm with minimal damages.
I was lucky. I'm about 100 miles north of Sandy's victims.
