You’re not fired, no, just really seriously demoted.

Almost two weeks late on Battery Day. Just got back from chicken chores and it’s a far finer day than yesterday – or maybe I’m just getting a little mojo back – and so LB and I are going to make the powerhouse rounds.

And the new canvas coat goes on the rack and the old canvas coat comes out…

…because battery acid, and I’m still not entirely convinced the constant holes aren’t caused by something I’m doing. So since the old coat is pretty much trashed anyway it can just keep doing what it’s been doing, and save wear and tear on the new one.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    Battery acid (or any acid) fumes can rot fabric. Your clothing doesn’t have to come in contact with the acid itself.

    Had to chuckle. When I get a new (coat, boots, vest, etc.), I usually continue to use the old one(s) ’cause the new one’s too good to get crappy.

    Yeah, I’m fighting that. But I wouldn’t service batteries or climb into the crawlspace in the new one.

To the stake with the heretic!
