...why the huge old nail was in our dining room floor. It rubbed a hole thru the carpet so I took it out. And now every floorboard in the house seems to creak.
Author's Update: From some of my comments I'm wondering...IS there such a thing as an alpha nail for holding it all together?! I sure hate the thought of going to bed one nite and waking up in my basement in the morning, HA! And yes, Jeanie...it was one HUGE nail!
