Can You Keep A Secret?

The Wifely Unit has been at her folks all week and isn’t due back until Sunday.

There is probably a football game on then too so who knows when she will finally roll in.

As the old saying goes, when the cat is away, the mice will play.

Mice in this case being a rat, as in me.

Leaving me for extended periods of time without close adult supervision can be a serious mistake.

Allow me to demonstrate.

Since I did nothing all day but sit here on my ass recuperating from the brutality of last week at work, have a computer, an internet connection and an addiction to old junk, this very quickly turns into me surfing the local Craigslist and OfferUp  selections of vintage tools.

Lo and behold, I just found this,

rust bucket

The motor comes with it, it is located five minutes from my brothers place, I see these every week going for $300 and up and this is what I have actually been after for quite some time..

I’m going to go snag it for $50.

Don’t you say a fucking word to my wife either.

She will discover it on her own soon enough.

I just want to get it in the garage and buried first.

Lots of surface rust there, could take me quite a while to clean that one up.

Yes sir,

It’s juuuuuuuuust right.

Something to do during the cold months coming up.

Now for sure I gotta get the boy to come get that bench mounted one. I still have to mount the old one too but I think I have a spot for it and that won’t take but a couple of hours.

  1. Disassemble, place rusted parts in bathtub, cover with evap o rust soaked towels for about 6 hours (before wife comes back) and presto, clean metal. 😉 And be damned sure to hide the evidence before she returns. Has worked for me, so far.


Pansies, Trolls and Liberals are urged to flee this place.
