I always wished I had the patience to wrench. Once I bust my knuckles, I get frustrated and I lose all I interest. I give up and want someone with skills to fix it for me.
Eh, it's not that bad. I used to build my own motors for my camaro and my dragster except the machine work, then my machinist became one of my best friends, so I did all the machine work too. The camaro was carburated the dragster was fuel injected, the wiring was very time consuming. Then I had to have one of my friends teach me how to tune it. Now I have a Nova that I did a LS swap in that I do my own tuning.

i got my hole glide yesterday. 🙂
Today, while cleaning rugs I noticed I needlessly tensed my grip in the handle and trigger and my shoulders were needlessly tense as well.

I need to remember to relax and let the wand and Vac do the work.

Yesterday I was at my local Pak n Save store buying a large bag of Tux dog food for my loyal pet and was in the checkout queue when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog.

What did she think I had an elephant? So, since I'm retired and have little to do, on impulse I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, I was starting the Tux Diet again. I added that I probably shouldn’t, because I ended up in hospital last time, but I'd lost 10 kilograms before I woke up in intensive care with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pockets with Tux nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in queue was now enthralled with my story.)

Horrified, she asked me if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no, I stepped off the kerb to sniff an Irish Setter's arse and a car hit me.

I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard.

I'm now banned from Pak n Save.
Better watch what you ask retired people. They have all the time in the world to think of daft things to say.
