    Guess the weight

    Its been awhile since anyone did one of these..... So can you guess what it weighed???
    HINT: there are 2 more water heaters under the other one and the furnace.
    Fact: none of this is from curb. All from 2 places i pick up from. Plumbers and HVAC guy... Good luck

    Based on the squat of the truck, water removed from water heaters, and not knowing what is inside the barrel and other nooks and crannies = 825 lbs.
    Give back more to this world than we take.

You can say, "There will never be another," with a lot of people, but Johnny Carson was in a league of one in my book. Sigh.... If there is an afterlife, and if I make it into heaven (and he did), I want to shake his hand and thank him for entertaining me late nights from '75 until he quit in '92. Not every night, but it was worth it to tune in if I were up, and many a late night coming home with a buzz...
