  1. The only time I hit a golf ball, I was in the U S Air Force when a friend came to visit. He wanted to go to a golf course to hit some balls so I took him. I drove a ball out over the driving course, hit a jack rabbit and knocked it out. Since I am a veterinarian, I decided my course in life was to save animals, not to harm them. Last time I hit a golf ball.
  2. We had a 60 cup coffee pot when I was in the Air Force. It was on a timer so was ready when we got to work. By 3:00 PM one had to dig the coffee out with a spoon. My wife still drinks coffee and I have it ready for her in the morning. It smells good but I haven't had a cup since I got out of Air Force. A ranch I worked on the couple drank hot coffee morning an noon, then iced coffee for supper. I have elected to get my caffeine from other sources. My stomach appreciates it.
  3. I have told friends that I am glad the sweet woman I married mother was not Mother Nature. If I ticked my wife off her mother would cloud up and storm all over me.
  4. I don't make any sounds. I don't think. I'm hard of hearing.
  5. https://www.drpower.com/power-equipment/leaf-lawn-vacuums/tow-behind-leaf-vacs/prompt-for-ll2-9-59-premier-new.axd This is what I use to pull behind my John Deere lawn mower tractor.
  6. I built a bird feeder feeder that resembled a granary with an over hang to protect the bird seed from the weather. I didn't mind the squirrels eating out of it but they started eating on the wood. It was mounted on a dead tree. To keep the squirrels out, I then mounted it on a pipe. The little bussy tailed buggers could climb to the feeder. I then mounted a gallon soft drink plastic bottle upside down on the pipe. They would climb the pipe, look around but couldn't get around it. I was sitting on the back porch and noticed a squirrel in the feeder. As I watched they would climb a tree close buy and jump on the feeder. I then went to the shop, got some sheet aluminum and covered the roof. The squirrels would climb the tree, jump to the feeder and fall to the ground. Someone ask my daughter what I did in my retirement and she said he sits on the back porch and try's to outsmart squillels.
  7. When I was fixing to retire several years ago, some coworkers asked me if I was going to move and downsize. I told them I was staying because of my shop. I told them I had built a casket. It was in my shop in cardboard boxes because I didn't want looking at it. When I croaked my wife was to open the box where she would find a hammer, nails and instructions for assembly. She was to put me in the casket, call the backhoe and bury me outside by the front door to my shop. I wasn't leaving.
  8. I turn pens, bottle stoppers, toothpick holders and handles for kitchen tools. I give them to friends and relatives for Christmas presents, birthdays and appreciation gifts. I keep an Excell spread sheet on who gets what. I looked the other day and I have given away 165 pens. I didn't realize I had that many friends.
  9. Pointy toed boots are for smashing bugs in corners.
  10. I, many years ago, did not know what a pill bottle was. Now I have so many they are everywhere in my shop with various items in them.
  11. I'm just glad the mother of the lady I married is not Mother Nature. If I upset my wife her mother would cloud up an storm all over me.
  12. The urologist I really liked moved farther away from me. He told me one time prostrate cancer would not get me. I am 77. The urologist I go to now wants to see me every six months. I don't like those tailpipe exams.
  13. I made two chairs and a two seater out of cyprees about 8-10 years ago that set on our back porch. I can't remember where I got the plans. They are very comfortable to set in. We have cushions on them. Every one who visits like them.
  14. I have been using the Abranet sanding products on my turnings since I discovered them. I am pleased with the results.
