I spent decades giving them exams. Hunting them for sport isn’t nearly as much fun.
Wooo Hooo!! I saved around $250 on a water cooler. We have a bottom loaded water cooler that froze up, over the past several weeks. I tried every way to fix it, but no luck. This thing is about 3 yrs old, and the wife insisted I go, and buy a new one. So, me being me, I ignored the wife, and called the manufacturer of the cooler directly. I explained the issue, and asked if there was a thermostat I could purchase, and they said it is all integrated into the system. SO, the said they would send me a new unit, at no cost, and I could just dispose of the old one.
I hate throwing it away, if It only needs a thermostat. Time to tinker.
Rode my bicycle 41 miles (66km) in 92F / 33C heat today. Saved a turtle from getting splatted while crossing a country highway, Fixed a broken chain for another cyclist I saw walking who would have been walking for another 7 miles, and then got stung right next to my eye and had the right side of my face swell up for most of the ride home. Good times.
Ouch! Are you OK?
I chopped a little wood, Live Oak. I had to stop, because it was too green to split, without killing myself.
Did a little shopping at Harbor Freight Tools.
Changed the Oil on my Diesel Pickup, along with the oil and fuel filters.
Then called my son, to come over to smoke a cigar, have a beer, and eat dinner.
Yes. Thank you. I am lucky that I am not allergic to most stings. Not sure what got me, but it looks like I got punched in the eye. It doesn't hurt any more, just a bit swollen. Hopefully it will be back to normal in the morning.
Just tell everyone that your wife is faster with a frying pan than you thought she was.
and get better quickly
I laid down approx 35 feet of a stone walkway, in my front yard. Clearing a path, leveling the ground, and leveling the walking stones.
I enlisted my wife and 14 yr old daughter. I did this so my daughter would learn a life skill, because she might need it when she is older. Most men, under 30 would have no idea how to do this. She was very very proud of herself, as I was of her. She didnt gripe one bit, and was carrying 30lb stones, like they were light. Not bad for a 5'8" 130lb walking stick of a girl.
I could have done it myself, in about the same time, but what fun would that have been.
She would hit harder than this if I made a remark like that...
Looks better than I expected. She must have shown some mercy.
Or did she use the copper pan instead of the cast iron?
Just a backhand. I am glad there was no cookware involved.
Wired a Garrard A-70 turntable ..... still have minor ascetic work, plinth work, temporary cartridge and motor lube.
Hope the idler wheel tyre is still good!
What cartridge are you putting on that?
The idler wheel is in fantastic condition and this is the cartridge I'm getting for is this one.
Cleaned the stock on my new 1944 Carbine. It was blotchy, dark, and sticky. Cleaned off the grime and applied seven new coats of BLO.
What is BLO??
I assume Boiled Linseed Oil
Replaced the air pump and relay on an Audi A8. Now it doesn't sit on the ground. After doing this job I don't think I would ever own an Audi.
