Default Re: Can you relate?

Terranova...They had the old joke about changing a lightbulb. I changed out the fluorescent tubes in my shop last week. I had to move the car trailer, three non-running vehicles (one on jack stands), get the new tubes out of the loft, R&R the tubes. Two of the brand new tubes did not work so it was off to Lowes (50 mile round trip) for more tubes. Then I had to get everything back where it was and then deal with the disposal of the old tubes. Changing the tubes took maybe 15 minutes. The rest took quite a while. Work? It wasn't like harvesting 5 acres of water melons in the Texas sun, but it sure seemed like work to me.
