  1. Tabs on the Weather...

    It's 65 on the mesa. Winds at 30 mph. Could rain but, doubtful. Next week looks to be about the same.
  2. Benevolant Box

    That's a good,un, Harry. I hope it gets filled often.
  3. Estate Sale find

    Great haul. You done good. I've never seen gouges like those. They seem awfully long. What kind of carving were they used for, do you know?
  4. Spring time in West Central Indiana

    I'll bet you're sick of it about now, Dave. But, I'm glad you posted it. Reminds me of IL March weather and, why we left. Well, the weather wasn't the only reason. Them revenoors still haven't found us.
  5. Hf Clamp Review.

    Ain't gonna be no next time.
  6. Cutech Portable Planer

    Herb, in case that torque wrench fails.... Inch pound one from HF. $19.99.
  7. Hf Clamp Review.

    Herb, I'll not lie...I used both hands.
  8. Jesse, a check is on the way. Wait by the mailbox. Don't let the size of the check worry you. Invest it wisely. After all, it's not the size that matters, it's how you use it.
  9. WWII Spitfire Pilot

    Many thanks, Lew. That was great.
  10. Hf Clamp Review.

    Had a couple of those HF squeeze types. Trying to make them hold better, I squeezed harder. Blew the sides out. Pure crap. But, they still sell them.
  11. Got a bunch of edges jointed. Now, back to making thin strips.
  12. Jesse, they don't make binoculars that powerful.
  13. I may get yelled at for saying this but, IMO, a MACBOOK is a far cry from a first class machine. When our DIL was ready to upgrade hers, we (her hubby and I) talked her into a Toshiba Satellite and, she couldn't be happier.
  14. Hf Clamp Review.

    Got a few of those F styles and 4 of the bar clamps. The Bar clamps were purchased when Lee Valley had a one time sale on them about 15 years ago. But, they are identical to the HF ones. IIRC, the 4 were $20. I have no complaints at all.
  15. There's not a whole lot in this life to be terribly serious about. Least of all is one's self. If ya can laugh at yourself, you are pretty well adjusted. IMHO...YMMM...
  16. Matag wringer washer

    Ron, there's just so much talent at your house. The washing machine and quilt are awesome. Like Pete, we use the solar drying method. Things dried on the line smell and feel so much better. Nothing beats a line dried towel after a nice shower or bath.
  17. Your dad and I would get along famously.
  18. Jesse, I quit dancing when when I tripped, fell and, bent my tuba.
  19. Well, Crap!

    What's a snowblower?
  20. Just when you think you've seen the dumbest thing

    The American Hose Association (AHA) is seeking to have YouTube remove this video.
  21. Tabs on the Weather...

    Well, it hit 75. But, its gonna bounce around the 50s and low 60s for the next several days, with lows in the high 20s and low 30s. Spring sprung and left for a while.
  22. Identify This Creature

    Sure looks like fox prints, to me.
  23. Some questions for those of you on Medicare

    We bought the supplement through United Health care. We've been quite happy with it. Paid for Phyl's shoulder replacement and my cancer treatments without a problem. My medications are all handled through the VA. But, Phyl hasn't had any hassle with hers. Because of our remote location, we're on a PPO. Even so, our cost is only $70 per mo. But, every time SS gets increased by a bit, the supplement cost goes up a bit, also. No vision or dental coverage with our plan.
  24. Give me a W!

    Aha, now I see. Thanks.
