Used the scissors to open one of those little rectangle security tags to show the kids what was inside, 3 strips of shiney steel that entertained them for a good 20 minutes

Tightened a hose clamp around some coffee filters to further refine the beverage made yesterday, quite tasty:-)

Clipped off the battery leads on the skid steer and replaced with a quick connect plug. This is a new thing I'm doing, I now have one battery for the 4 wheeler, skid steer and the crawler. The battery can stay indoors and charged all the time!!!

The skid steer was used today to drain the pond... For good:-(

Another random post

My uncle started blogging so I'm temporarily inspired... Just got a new Wave over vacation, my old one was down to maybe 6 tools out of the 17.

Back to my original reason for this blog, a quick snippet of my daily life told trough my Leatherman.

-cut open hop packs and yeast for an IPA and a California common
- raising the swings another link for the kids
