Ever Wonder?

We flew to Ohio to visit my parents last week.  The kids had a blast at Mammy and Papa's house and the trip went by way too fast, as usual. I know it's crazy, but as soon as our adventure began, I couldn't help but think of Lifetime. When we went through the airport security checkpoint, I counted seven Lifetime tables just at the one gate I was using!  You know the table you put your carry-on luggage and shoes on before you push them through the conveyor belt?  Yep, a majority of the time, those are Lifetime tables!  Considering all of the hundreds of thousands of things that get dropped and scooted on the tables each day, they were in pretty good shape.  It definitely speaks well to the strength and durability of Lifetime tables.  (I did notice, however, they've started bringing in a few metal tables with built-in storage shelves underneath to stack those plastic gray bins that hold wallets, watches etc.)

When 9-11 occurred and the heightened security checks were initiated, I was a full-time employee at Lifetime.  I remember we used to talk in staff meetings about how quickly we were seeing our tables popping up at airports.  But, I hadn't put much thought into it lately...it was just another one of those airport fixtures I started to take for granted, I guess.   Think about it though...ever wonder how many thousands of Lifetime tables must be in use in airports around the globe?  Pretty cool and pretty mind-boggling!

Stinky
The basement, after almost two years of work, is finally finished. We are very happy with the way it turned out. This past Saturday I decided to move my tools out of the basement and into the garage, which meant that I needed to organize the garage to fit everything. I have been parking my car out in the driveway for the past year and-a-half because my side of the garage has been used to store stuff from the basement.I strive to be a minimalist but with a wife and two kids you are bound to accumulate stuff. Fortunately, I recently purchased a Lifetime Fold-in-half trailer. Well actually... my dad bought the trailer for himself but I claim it as mine whenever I need it. He also stores it at his house which isnt that big a deal since folds up to only 29 wide. With the wife and kids gone I wanted to get started on the cleaning ...
