Except, I don't want to open up the sewing room door.
I know my drum sticks are in there!
This is pure torture!
Just a little, right?

Still haven't had the guts to open the door to the sewing room.
I suspect my drum sticks are in there.
I will get entirely too distracted by everything else.

|Beaumont67|| TOOLS EXPLAINED |
DRILL PRESS : A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and flings your beer across the room, denting the freshly-painted project which you had carefully set in the corner where nothing could get to it.
WIRE WHEEL : Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhere under the workbench with the speed of light. Also removes fingerprints and hard-earned calluses from fingers.
DROP SAW : A portable cutting tool used to make studs too short.
PLIERS : Used to round off bolt heads. Sometimes used in the creation of blood-blisters.
BELT SANDER : An electric sanding tool commonly used to convert minor touch-up jobs into major refinishing jobs.
HACKSAW : One of a family of cutting tools built on the Ouija board principle... It transforms human energy into a crooked, unpredictable motion, and the more you attempt to influence its course, the more dismal your future becomes.
VISE-GRIPS : Generally used after pliers to completely round off bolt heads. If nothing else is available, they can also be used to transfer intense welding heat to the palm of your hand.
OXYACETYLENE TORCH : Used almost entirely for lighting on fire various flammable objects in your shop. Also handy for igniting the grease inside the wheel hub out of which you want to remove a bearing race..
TABLE SAW : A large stationary power tool commonly used to launch wood projectiles for testing wall integrity.
HYDRAULIC FLOOR JACK : Used for lowering an automobile to the ground after you have installed your new brake shoes, trapping the jack handle firmly under the bumper.
BAND SAW : A large stationary power saw primarily used by most shops to cut good aluminum sheet into smaller pieces that more easily fit into the trash can after you cut on the inside of the line instead of the outside edge.
TWO-TON ENGINE HOIST : A tool for testing the maximum tensile strength of everything you forgot to disconnect.
PHILLIPS SCREWDRIVER : Normally used to stab the vacuum seals under lids or for opening old-style paper-and-tin oil cans and splashing oil on your shirt; but can also be used, as the name implies, to strip out Phillips screw heads.
STRAIGHT SCREWDRIVER : A tool for opening paint cans. Sometimes used to convert common slotted screws into non-removable screws and butchering your palms.
PRY BAR : A tool used to crumple the metal surrounding that clip or bracket you needed to remove in order to replace a 50 cent part.
HOSE CUTTER : A tool used to make hoses too short.
HAMMER : Originally employed as a weapon of war, the hammer nowadays is used as a kind of divining rod to locate the most expensive parts adjacent the object we are trying to hit.
UTILITY KNIFE : Used to open and slice through the contents of cardboard cartons delivered to your front door; works particularly well on contents such as seats, vinyl records, liquids in plastic bottles, collector magazines, refund checks, and rubber or plastic parts. Especially useful for slicing work clothes, but only while in use.
ADJUSTABLE WRENCH : aka "Another hammer", aka "the Swedish Nut Lathe", aka "Crescent Wrench". Commonly used as a one size fits all wrench, usually results in rounding off nut heads before the use of pliers. Will randomly adjust size between bolts, resulting in busted buckles, curse words, and multiple threats to any inanimate objects within the immediate vicinity.
God Bless It TOOL : Any handy tool that you grab and throw across the garage while yelling 'God Bless It' at the top of your lungs. It is also, most often, the next tool that you will need.

Very entertaining, Mel. He lives in Indiana, so maybe Doc can invite him out to Shelbyville to "have a look at" the agra business.

So of course, everyone here is surfing the net--I just discovered this guy who says his aim in life is to talk about how Britain is different from America--he's done a lot of videos, it looks like. Kinda cute--at least a way to burn some time: |

That commercial is so Un-PC, on so many levels, it would cause a mass snowflake meltdown, if broadcast today. This would certainly cause an actual rise in our sea levels!

Thanks for sharing Ma. Now it's stuck in my head.
Anybody remember the Frito Bandito?

Here's what SP really wants Joey for on her farm... Maybe HDD would be a better choice?

For some reason, he was running back and forth in the corral, hollering at the top of his lungs (which is what tipped me off in the first place that someone was NOT where they should be). Jasper was barking, too, but there's not much he can do with two 2,000 pound cows. They ignore him. But Horus is a tattle-tale (tail? LOL!). He probably just didn't SEE the big hole the other two made, but he was making like he was all so innocent and everything. Sheesh. Never a dull moment here.
What this means, though, is that Mr. Grumpy Bear and I will have to go out and fix that gate again today. He just tied the broken part up with some baling twine last night, but that won't last long. Meanwhile, I chained the hay room door shut last night so if my two sneaky Bovine Burglars get out again, they won't get in there. Some days I AM smarter than my cows. Not often, but sometimes.
We actually have three broken gates now, and Rich (so far) has not even thought about fixing them. He just drags a corral panel in front of them. I've offered to do it, but he won't let me because then what good would he be? Good for nuttin' I guess. But even though the corral panels are heavy, they CAN be pushed over, so every once in a while there's another escape. It's no big deal if they do, because they can't get off the property, but they do get into the hay room, or the garage, or tromp through what's left of the flower beds (or garden, if that gate is open) and make a mess. We sometimes go ahead and let them out in late summer if hay is getting scarce and they've eaten their pasture grass down too short. Rich just doesn't mow for a while, and the cows and Horus take care of keeping the "lawn" grass short. But right now, they have PLENTY of hay, they just wanted to check out the "new" stuff because it *must* be better than the old stuff. Cows... they're just like two year old kids.

SP, most of your CT "friends" are OG's and are in bed well before 2200 hrs. (except Mel). We've got to get our rest in order to get up at 0530 to check into CT, then schedule day's work and activities...or in Doc's case, plow the north 40...
DW & I watched "The Pride of the Yankees" recorded off TCM last night. The Lou Gehrig story. Great movie, starring Gary Cooper, Walter Brennan and Babe Ruth, that I had never seen before. Never knew that Babe Ruth had appeared in movies?
Only discrepency was that Lou Gehrig was a short guy and G. Cooper is tall, but did resemble him for the most part...
