Merlin i could think of better things to do with firemen ;-) ;-)


Wend Report 12 Oct 2012 16:38

I use firemen for nearly everything - they're pretty versatile too. Shed erections, dry stone walls, fencing, roof repairs and flashing - you name it. Now I have one painting my house - no added expense of scaffolding because he's so confident up ladders and doesn't need it. Just plenty of builder's brew ;-) :-D

LaGooner Report 11 Oct 2012 11:34

Ummm nice Joy. :-P :-P. My son had a tank and I didn't mind helping with the glass cleaning but when it came to siphoning out I drew the line. He now has a fancy small pump that does that job for him and also cleans the gravel.
