    Was just on the news a molecule in the tassy funnel web spider venom stops heart tissue dying after a heart attack. Whoda thunk it!

    So it's good to get zapped by one if you have heart issues :surprised3:.

    Maybe wait until they make a tablet or injection, me thinks. Better still, a vaccine so the anti-vaxers can start facebook pages about how evil it is and stuff. Eventually, as long as it's not contagious, evolution will weed those nutjobs out of the gene pool.

    NO, NO, NO. It's HOMELITE, it's always and everything Homelite. Best mix oil, best bar oil, best saw, best trimmer. Go Homelite or go home!

    It feels pretty nice out right now. Hooking up the trailer , have 4 lawns to mow today. Think I'll use the JD and leave the walk behind home. Total of 2 1/2 to 3 acres. Last time I did these 4 lawns together, I took the Velke off the mower and walked it, trying to loose some weight. My odometer said I walked 8.73 miles.

    After 2 days you'll still be moving gently for another day or two. After that it was in the back of my mind for about a week to not move to fast or twist the wrong way.

    Been there. Don't lift anything for a while. I mean a few weeks! I don't know what that wrinkled pouch has to do with your muscles but you'll feel it if you try to lift a big round or something.

    I didn't buy it for mileage, I bought it because it is essentially a tractor meant to drive at 55mph...

    There is nothing like driving old iron that rattles!

    A guy I know that traps them, throws a blanket over them before he moves them to relocate them

    I know about the blanket, but did not need one. Just approached from the front (he could not see through the door) and he got calm after a few minutes.

    I would dispatch him before re-locating. There is no place that needs one and I don't give others my problems.

    I know mine does not have the work capacity of the heavier duty trucks, but it has more than what I need and I appreciate the rest of it I did not expect in a truck. The dang thing is so high end the high beams go on and off by themselves often better than I could do it! (I still miss the floor switches, no impact on your steering).

    T Storms just moved in, so I closed the garage door (where I was working on my brother's concrete saw) and came inside.

    F7E619E7-2451-43EB-8433-531CB3ED175E.jpeg I managed to drop off the last load of oak to a fella two miles away. $180 for both racks pictured. All this is scrounged oak that I got after the utility companies cut them down and let them lay.

    Speaking of skunks; I was fishing on a pier at a boat landing when a man showed up with a blanket covered live trap, he walked out the pier, lowered the trap and blanket into the water and held it there for 2-3 minutes until the skunk was dead. He removed the trap, still covered with the blanket so as not to offend the animal rightists and returned to his car. He said he has been doing it this way for years and never had one spray. This is a more humane way of doing it with less risk than shooting and possible spraying.

    Well it was supposed to only be 72 here today but it is still 77. It is very comfortable with my new AC running though and we are driving out the residual heat from two straight weeks of 80 degree temps!
