I ate some cat food once by accident. I don't know what they see in it. Pretty blah.

In my quest for more tools I finally got an air impact.

A while back I got this crapsman battery impact. It was on black Friday sale. I figured something is better than nothing. Well it's pretty weak and only good for maybe the removal of 2 tires, or a good whomp on one stuck nut. The battery dies quickly. For the few times I needed it it was ok but it seemed I kept getting out the breaker bar.

So I got this IR. It was a price I could live with and advertised as 500 ft/lbs.

Well advertising must have been an engineer. Look upon closer inspection.... Only 350 ft/lbs....

Haven't needed it yet but time will tell.

The best battery impacts worth a crap are from Ridgid, Milwaukee, DeWalt, and Stra...I mean Snap-On. ChrisFix on YouTube was able to strip a car down completely with one fully charged Milwaukee lithium impact. Super expensive, but worth the money.

I've had the crapsman for a few years now. No box no more.

So I got a little flier for a grand opening for Attwoods Home and Ranch. It had a $10 off coupon for a purchase of $10 or more. The place has some pretty good prices, but the coupon expired today. I went at 2pm. The place is huge, and so was the parking lot, but there wasn't an empty space anywhere.

I could just imagine how bad it was inside, so I just drove off. Right down the street is the Farm and Ranch, and I need to get some rats for my snake. I get there....NO PARKING SPOTS EITHER!!!!

Discount vaccination day!!!! Wasn't my day.

So working on a customer's new purchase crawler(basically rebuilding everything but the cage).

The propane mixer has a few adaptor plates and bad design. It was falling off and could possibly drop a screw down the intake. As I'm tearing it down to rebuild I see this.

Reminds me of those memes

Don't forget to grease your intake.

This week I've been fertilizing a lot of our accounts by using a walk behind spreader...nothing motorized just man power. Hopper holds 50lbs or a bit more of granular fertilizer. Just yesterday (4/21) I had 30,543 steps taken according to Samsung Health, which equals over 15 miles walking. That was from 8am-5pm. This week alone I've walked close to 60 miles and my joints are telling me about it lol. As fun as our zero turn spreader/sprayee would be, I'd rather walk, I need the excerize for sure now. Just glad I don't have stupid tests to take for fertilizer, herbicides and pesticides, those tests suck.

You can buy aluminum powder and mix it at 5% with granular ammonium nitrate and make your own tannerite.
No kidding.

Hope people know that the container says, 100 yards for each pound of Tannerite. Back in 2015 a guy shot a lawn tractor with the stuff and was too close, blew his leg off from shrapnel.

Yes you can do the aluminum powder and stuff to make you're own! I have done it with a friend. It wss pretty awesome personally I think it's better then the tannerite that you can buy. On a side note, I had my 2nd son yesterday morning at 530am. My wife's 1st labor was terrible so we were nervous but thank God everything went really smooth this time. We are already back home! Last time we were in the hospital for a week lol

My doorbell just rang a little while ago. A guy is standing there and introduces himself (kinda ) said something like it's me Paul..( actually...I don't have a clue what his name is...)

So I'm looking at this guy, and he looks vaugely familiar, but I just can't place him. He can tell I'm a bit lost, so he says :" Milyn's husband." I told him I only knew him as Red.

I had only met him once in person, although I'd seen him a couple of times on Facebook. ( He's my ex's new husband.) He said he had just stopped by to see how I was doing. We had a nice chat for about 10-15 mins, when he said he had to go.

I thought it was really nice of him to stop by.

My day was ok until questioned by the Michigan State Police. This was actually yesterday, but I fell asleep about 9:00 last night. Just woke up and need to vent.

I'm an amateur photographer. My eldest son, almost 30 is getting his master's degree. The ceremony is Sunday. So I went out to practice. I'm getting killer shots (joking) of the high school, fire department, library. The flashing OPEN sign of this new (crappy) hot dog restaurant catches my eye. It's a very small town.

Anyways I drive across the street. Trying to get the O P E N sign in seperate frames. The owner female (no lady) comes out screaming. "What am I taking pictures of?"
Me, "I was taking pictures of your OPEN sign."

She's freaking out, gonna call the cops. Got a note pad and her cell phone out. I turn my truck around and drive down to the gas station beer store. Grab a couple beers, tell my tale to the guys there. About the time I'm putting the beer in the back of my truck the State Police show up.

I grab my camera and start taking pictures of everything in site. Marathon, Subway, Get Ice Here.

Turns out one of the boys in blue was also an amateur photographer. Turned into a BS session. Funny in a way. Although you would think these guys are payed well enough to actually do something.

Anyways, laughed it off but did give the wench the rating she deserved on yelp. I did waste $23 last week on 3 bone meat chili dogs and onion rings homeless people wouldn't eat.

Hot Diggity Dog , Martin MI.

Bottom line. My son is getting his master's degree. Hers probably needs bail money.
