What about concrete piers?

I don't know how likely I would be able to make all six the same height, though.

Blocks are looking better.

The frost line is 18".
The guys that built my shed used asphalt shingles as shims between the concrete pier blocks and the shed frame.

I was fishing for an identity for 'orange store'. It has to be Copeland Lumberyards, but they are down to three locations from 68 at the turn of the century. I was most familiar with the Sheridan, OR location.

In 2000, Helen Joe decided to sell the company and retire. At that time Copeland Lumber had 68 retail outlets in Oregon, Washington, California, Nevada and Arizona; 1000 employees, and annual sales of $200 million. There was no single buyer for all Copeland’s stores, so the company was broken apart and groups of stores sold to different companies.

The Copeland Lumber name lives on in Newport, Florence, and Waldport, Oregon.

I have heard of using shingles as shims. What is the minimum quantity that I can purchase?

I need to call Little Caesar's to see if I can get a free lunch. There are two other locations half an hour in opposite directions, but I am barely motivated to drive 2.5 miles to the Show Low location.

Mom is watching a USAA Veterans' Day program. They keep showing a lady drawing a V on her palm, writing her Veteran's initials, drawing a star, and posting a selfie.

When Mom pauses her television DirectTV shows ads. I bet they were thrilled when they learned they could make money each time a customer paused their television. One of their ads shows people posting selfies with something written or drawn on their hands, something about not texting and driving.

Am I allowed to do that while driving?

Who started this and when will it end?

I found out last year that I can go and strike up conversations with 90-year-old veterans. ...and they sorta can't get away.

Maybe next year?

I told my Facebook friends to drop and give me 50. I did 25, slowly counted to 25, and did another 25. Officially I did 25 push-ups in a row, but it hurt!

Forget Little Caesar's! They are dead to me again! I decided to not stand in a small and crowded waiting area!

Check out this totally invisible tracking device!

It is as big as my OBD-II code reader!

Strangely, it is a couple times as large as the $7 one that I bought, clearly proving that the less that you pay the more miniaturized the components are!

Not impressed. Two location over the river, one is tucked behind a Fred Myer and the other is way out Delta Highway. "Better head for Jerry's" Home - Jerry's Home Improvement

You call that orange? Copelands did the whole building, like a Staples.

My Little Caesar's is dead. You'd have thought a place that was already purely takeout would survive Covid, but mine didn't. I miss their $5 lunch deal.

WWII or Vietnam? I used to have some talks with WWII veterans at airports.
