  • I felt so dumb!

    Went to the shop last night to get my cordless drill to do some work in wife's greenhouse. Naturally both batteries are dead, so put batteries in chargers. Got ladder, climbed up to top storeage shelf and retrieved 30 year old sears 1/2 elec drill. It to is dead, will not even growl. While I amworking on said drill, wife walks in and wants to know what's taking so long, I proceed to show her that the drill won't work. Wife looks down and says, plug it in. I do as i am told. It's going to take a long time to live that one down

        Likewise. This past weekend wife came out into the garage whining about the vacuum cleaner being dead. She said she'd tried it in two different outlets. So I go in and ask her which two outlets. Now, I have a fleeting thought about both outlets being on the same ciruit, but then dismiss the idea.
        Yep, after getting well down the path of dismantling the thing I decide to try another outlet...you guessed it.
        However, in defense of my laziness, I will say that I had a bunch of plywood stacked in front of the service panel out in the garage. So I wasn't real eager to check the circuit breaker first.

            That`s about as bad as forgetting to strap on your spurs before you try to climb a pole. You stand in front of the pole, grab it with both hands and lift your leg high to take a good step and power yourself up...without spurs all that happens is your foot slams into the ground and you throw yourself off balance and slam your forehead into the pole....hard. Don't ask me how I know.

                I have these electromagnetic safety switches and combo e-switch re-sets on all of my machines. I keep forgetting to reset them through the e-switch unlocked first, electro switch re-set second method (otherwise, the machine just sits there, still unpowered, I turn on the switch, and presto-nothing).

                One night, after the fourth time I did this on a turning and threading demo night for an adult class, I noticed four students paying a buck each to yet another student who was quite happy. Seems they had a pool on the times this would happen in a night.

                I laughed, for even I had joked that "I am surprised you don't have a pool on this yet". They tend to listen to everything I say.....

                Gads, I hate it when I am walking in the shop (large shop, 7000sq ft) to get something for a student, and I forget what it was. I tend to walk a lap or two checking on other projects when this happens. usually though, the students see the dumb look I have when this happens, and they laugh. I remind them that someday they will to become grumpy old forgetful buggers....

                  There was an artical on the news tonight that some time in the future they will develope a pill to help forget fullness, something like viagra. For me it can't happen to soon.

                  Monday I am in the parts house buying some filters for the 93 dodge truck and for the life of me I could not remember what year the truck is. I purchased the truck last Aug. or at least I think I did.

                        Yeah.. There is the time I took a guy up in my plane for his first time and made a big deal of showing him how to lock the door latch after he got in. We took off and it was immediately apparent that I had not locked mine properly. Not a hazard but the wind whistles pretty good. Try opening the door so you can slam it shut at 120 knots. Not going to happen. Had to make a quick circuit and land. Very impressive.

                          My girlfriend asked me if i had mailed a rather big package over the past couple of days. Confused i said yes, but i did it from work and it was to my dad, a couple of hundred kms away.

                          Well she said, next time you should try putting a stamp on it. It really does help, and if you still have problems call the daycare where i work. Any one of the kids can help you. They know mail takes a stamp.

                          It is going to be a long week
