we have a ton of 'stuff'

I've been a 'picker' for decades - more of an accumulator than a collector so we have an assortment of ... 'stuff'

old toys, tools, jugs, pots, trunks, car, motorcycle, bicycle (including vintage bmx), etc

some of the stuff can be worth some money - so I have reviewed/reminded wife and kids (just in case/when that time arrives)

I should probably document

Oooh man, that's pretty snug.

Good news: I went on a ride with some friends
Bad news: I am on call and got several pages, the first couple I was able to address while soft pedaling, but more kept coming so I had to send my friends on their way and put out some fires.
Good news: on my way home I saw some yummy wild raspberries and ate them. Dee-licious!

I was talking to my cousin's husband a couple years back- they're about 12 or so years older than me. They'd recently moved from the big house with a barn they'd lived in for years into an apartment/townhouse in a 55+ community. He was describing all the stuff he found in the barn that he'd accumulated over the years - like a bunch of electric motors that he was "going to fix someday." .

Best thing they did was move the driver to the front, at least in the dragsters.

Yes, nice view. Stadium is nice too. Watched the game on the TV, streaming it on MLB.TV

Yeah, you wouldn't find me sitting with a diff in my lap.

They should do this again, I'd totally drive to San Diego for it. Fireworks shows are too damn long.

When I changed that filter in August, it had been more than a year and a half since it had been changed. The intake was audibly groaning from the load, but he never noticed. :rolleyes:

There’s a capacitor in the power circuit for the outside unit which has a limited lifespan. That’s my dumbass guess.

Knocked the wind out of me. I'm sore as crap this morning. Hopefully a hot shower will help. Must avoid in the future. Wish I saw who was passing me I'd have a couple words for him.

Holy smoke! Better than the train, I guess.

Did you see the F1 crash yesterday?

Got in a good ride with some locals, minus bam, and then took a quick shower and hustled, an hour and a half each way, to pick up a dual run capacitor for the AC system, sliding in just before the store closed. Got back, installed it, and she's up and running. :D

I hope BIL is buying dinner.

Or, move his couch to the garage.

When's the last time you've seen stars like that? Wow!
They must have more in the southern hemisphere. We didn't get that concentration even in the Belizean rainforest.

There's not more stars as far as I know. Just I was not anywhere near a built up area and there was low humidity. There is also a bit of sensor noise in photo as my camera is more entry level.

Reading the installation instructions for the new weed eater head. It says to soak the lines in water for 12-24 hours prior to use, to improve their effective lifespan. Anybody ever heard of that?
Edit: true to form, the first place I called told me this model has been discontinued, along with its parts. But he would be happy to sell me a newer model for $400. The part I bought turns out to be universal, across all models. Guess who won't see any future business from me.
