You Married A Loser Honey

loser

The Wifely Unit has a cute little (mostly useless) tool box and some tools in it that she has had since before we got together.

I have gotten into it once, to get her something out of it because she was putting some Piece of Shit IKEA type thing together and wanted to do it herself using her own tools.

Not a problem dear, knock yourself out.

This guy who’s wife ratted him out up above?

Big Time Loser.

I would get in my vehicle and drive to fucking Wal Mart if I didn’t have what I needed before I would get into my wife’s shit.

That boy has no self respect and doesn’t respect his wife either.

He sure as shit doesn’t have mine.

 

 

 

 

It’s Gonna Be A Looong Day

I didn’t sleep worth a shit last night.

Didn’t get to bed until after 5 A.M. to begin with and had trouble getting to sleep.

I have an app on my phone that gives me an alert when y’all leave a comment and that went off a couple of times. Then some asshole spammer called me at 6:30 on the nose.

I woke up, turned the fucking thing off and went back to sleep.

Then the cat started scratching the shit out of the door wanting out.

Then I had to piss.

I finally went back to sleep so hard that I didn’t move for a while and woke back up because my arm was hurting. It was dead asleep like nothing I have ever experienced before.

Totally paralyzed from lack of blood.

I flopped it around trying to get it into a place so the blood could start flowing again. It was so dead it was cold and as soon as the blood started flowing I could feel every fucking corpuscle going down and coming back so that took a bit for it to warm back up and start working again.

I laid back down and went back to sleep.

Then the dreams.

Fuck me, I don’t remember them exactly Thank God but they were nightmares and THAT woke me up AGAIN.

Then I had to piss again.

I must have woke back up six or seven times last night so of course now I am dragging ass and have to go back to work for ten fucking hours.

Ayep, it’s going to be a long day.

Yay.

A Quick Lesson On Equilibrium

gravity

I’m getting a late start today and have to beat feet back to the salt mines in just a minute.

So far all the news I am seeing from our side points to a successful rally at Richmond. I didn’t have time to look at anything from the MSM.

More than likely they won’t have much to say if they can’t spin it anyway.

Now We Wait

By the time I wake up some AAR’s oughtta be coming in from the goings on in Richmond.

As of now, whether or not it turns out to be the Goat Ropin’ Clusterfuck everyone has been predicting still remains to be seen.

Even if it does, the fact that people showed up should still send a message to Ol’ Blackface and his crew of Gun Grabbing Socialist Wannabe’s.

All I can do at this point is wish our side the best and wait for the results.

A Little Perseverance, A Little Luck And A Quick Project Knocked Out

Don’t ask me why because it’s just the way I am but for some reason I got fixated on acquiring a little jewelers hand vise like this one a while back.

So I started scouring EBay.

Some of these little things are getting pretty pricey I noticed right away.

Anywhere from $10 for a cheap Chinesium junker to $65 for a decent one.

Depending on what style and how big they were, the prices went up from there!

Some of them have wooden handles, some of them are a different style altogether but $20 to $45 plus tax and shipping seemed to be a pretty common price. You can buy brand new Chinesium ones but that isn’t what I wanted. I wanted a vintage one that was in decent condition but I didn’t want to pay the crazy prices some of these people were asking.

So I kept window shopping every once in a while.

Lo and behold here about a week ago something inside my parameters appeared but it still had a couple of days before the auction was up.

It didn’t even have any bidders.

I can attribute that to the way the seller advertised it.

They said it needed some work and that the wing nut was frozen up.

They were only asking $9.99 for it plus another $9 something for shipping.

A bit much for shipping but whatever.

So I waited and I watched.

Of course I was to be at work when the auction ended so a few hours before that and on my way out the door, I took a chance and bid on it.

I got busy and forgot about until I get an Email telling me I needed to pay up!

So I did that and promptly forgot about it again.

It showed up today.

It’s smaller than I imagined but it was in overall decent condition except for the froze up wing nut, as advertised.

Apparently either someone has never heard of WD-40 or didn’t want to bother with it and just wanted to make a quick buck.

Three minutes after I had it out of the box in the garage I had the wingnut loose and the clamp moving back and forth.

Twenty minutes later, without using any power tools, I had it cleaned up and working perfectly.

As you can see, it vas mate in Chermany.

I’m thinking that makes it Pre-WWII because Germany got split in two after that and the patina under the surface rust supports that assumption.

It’s not new enough to be Post Wall German for sure.

So for twenty bucks and twenty minutes of effort I now have a nice little vintage hand vise .

I like little quickie projects like that.
