I have a constant urge to quit internet, not because of you all splendid people but because I make such a fool outta myself.

Anyway, a respectable man showed up with a bunch of garden tools to sharpen a couple of days ago and urged to get it done quick.
Well yesterday early morning while trying to straighten a rose scissirs blade (the thick bottom catch blade) it broke and I got the freshly sharpened cutting blade about 1" into my hand cutting the string to my thumb. Operation on next wednsday, looking forewards to two moths of gipsum and training the thumb to get it working again.
My right hand thumb - the most important finger for a tool worker. I slashed my right hand pinky finger when I was young and it's become a permanent non-functioning hook ever since, I hope they do a better job with my thumb.
I've got potent pain killers and Jeagermeister, no pain and the weather is pristine - cold but calm with a blue sky and sun.

Over and out.

Ouch , speedy recovery bud ! My oldest Son is a builder , during his apprenticeship he cut the back of his right hand to the tendons with a masonry grinder . Same scenario , he today in his 40,s still does everything however , cold weather bothers his hand . He got off lucky could have been much worse .

good morning... to set up to split some oak chunks. I am in the mood, but with cold rainy Seattle-like conditions... lacking the motivation! lol :drinkingcoffee:

58f here, 60's all day! currently, rains have stopped, wet n dreary out... windmill looking forlorn! got front yard raked up of pine needles, etc. decided to rake then and clean up lawn some, then only cutting grass. :yes: filled 4 tubs for the pine needle lady... need 4 more. went for a mid evening bike ride around 8 pm... and got a surprise! :surprised3: someone had gotten their 4 tubs and filled them to overflowing... omg!

QB :heart:

:)

sometimes, I get so many pine needles, I swear I could make round bales out of them...

good day for a lumberjack's breakfast... well, brunch!

have a good day...

'over n out!'

I'll be down your way Sunday, heading down to buy another trailer, they've been coming and going pretty fast. I tried to call you the other day when I was down there, needed to borrow a 1 7/8 ball setup because the guy said the trailer I was buying was a 2". Ended up running up to Uhaul and buying one, 35 bucks :rolleyes:, I probably have 5 in the basement.
The guy also had a ham radio tower/antenna in his storage unit he may be selling too. I kept his number as I thought you may be interested.
Have a great day.

I didn’t even notice a missed call. Sorry man.

I think i know exactly were a loose 1-7/8 is sitting too

You been selling trailers? Did I understand that right?

He has an antenna eh? Shoot me his number when you get a chance. No hurry. Super busy at work doing 7 days the past 5 weeks so my free time is spent with the boy right now. Did get 2 days off in there though.

Hope all is well with you and the family Brett.

Good afternoon all, 45° at chores time and rain, still raining now and will be most of the day. Animals are fed and watered, bipeds fed and coffee is gone. Had a hard time finding the muzzleloader sabots and bullets I wanted but finally found a little out of the way gun shop and bought the last box they had. I should be good for 3 deer before I need a new box. More sighting in than shooting deer. Fixed another 1/8" finger joint jig to go with the 1/4" jig. Next I'll try my hand at making a nice box for my chisels. I have some thin Oak boards that should work nicely. Just have to find the time in between milling and hunting and making Wifey happy. Always big jobs ahead of me. Play safe out there.

Our window unit had a heat thing there 50 some years ago.
Lil auction this morn. 35 minutes prior to scheduled start there were twice as many auctioneer people as bidders :laughing: less than 30 bidders and not much money needed from winning bidder in less than 3 hours. The one I got my 066 went from 8 am til around 8 pm with 2 rings for a bit. Guess they vary bit.
Play safe this weekend
