Byproduct of Getting Old

All threads that bitch about new, existing, or old members will be posted/relocated here. Keep this shit off the General forum, because no one wants (or cares) to hear your opinions. Now go back to the other forums and post something worthy of reading.

Well, there's a handful of pills he's supposed to take in the morning, and another handful before bed. Mix all of that up with a pint of Hobo Spice and some Havana tobacco, and it's more like heroin. Or LSD.

Up and fully dressed at 2:45 AM, trying to move the table I've dragged over to block the door so he doesn't go wandering.

Jose, sleeping on a cot next to the table: "Why are you up?"

Old Man: "I'm ready to go home."

Jose: "Your wife is armed, and she will shoot us if we come home at this hour. Go back to bed."

Old Man: "I'm not sleepy. I'm just going to sit down here until it's time to go."

(to be continued...)

I just finished a delicious dinner of corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, onions, and carrots, compliments of my lovely wife.

She's currently doing the dishes, so our story can now continue.

Old Man: "What time is it?"

Jose, hitting the light on his watch: "It's ten to three."

Old Man: "We should get going then."

Jose: "It's too early."

Old Man, just as Jose is drifting back to sleep: "What time is it?"

Jose: "See that window? We're not leaving until you see light coming through that window."

Old Man: "Why do those fucking dogs keep barking?"

Jose: "Because they're dogs, and that's what they do."

We ended up chatting until 5:30 AM.

In hindsight, I should have just taken him home.

one of those fuckers peed on my foot when it was a pup.

and all I got was an apology, a question about snakes and sharks and a half ounce.
I see now why there's so many shitty songs written about mendocino.

That's because you couldn't remember the name of that fucking president.

You got some Walmart underwear as well.

Which oddly enough is what I gave him for his birthday.

Cleaned out my grandmothers house the other day. Hauled out junk for 8+ hours. Hit my head on every door way, light fixture and support beam possible in their old farm house. And listened to my mother and her sisters try and decide who gets what. One of which I’m certain has a un-diagnosed psychiatric disorder. Ate ham-on-bun for lunch.

She had already given me a good amount of my grandpas old tools, so I didn’t take anything until everyone had what they wanted. But ended up leaving with 3 things. Grandpa’s rocker- that he’d sit out on the front porch with. The cooler that would have a sixer in it beside said rocker. And his old hand plane. Excited to use all 3.

get all this motherfucking patina off my plane!

as I’m sure you know you can dismantle that entire plane, polish and refinish... right?
do that. light sprays of wd40 will keep it sweet but it will collect dust which in turn makes you clean it constantly.
nice score.
I had an aunt who would cut oven made pizza with scissors.

That’s the plan. I can’t wait to see what it looks like afterwards. Even with said patina, it operates far better than my shit box store plane.

just be mindful of the rear handle for they tend to snap at/on the grain.
I think the technical term is they're twats of things.

Be careful Shawn, people might start to think you make a habit out of posting useful stuff.

He would have waited until after the snap to inform me of this.
