If you got it you gotta use it. Right?

So I started the afternoon just planning to get that Honda generator up and running. Works fine.

Then I thought, well, I do have this one little application requiring a power saw…

gen
In fairness, the Secret Lair can run a scroll saw. It can’t run a circular saw, which would be better for cutting plywood, but my circular saw is still at Landlady’s barn and I didn’t feel like driving all the way over there to get it.

floor
So I cut the plywood with a scroll saw, powered by the new generator. Because I could. And as previously stated, it works fine. 🙂 The powershed has a new floor now.

buckets
I got the food buckets back in, but by then my back was singing to me.

mess
So there’s still a big pile’o’stuff in the yard. Fortunately the forecast says I’ve got a few more dry days.

There are some changes I want to make on the interior walls before I drag all that stuff back inside anyway. This is going well. 🙂

    Make sure you run it dry of fuel before you store it. Cleaning the fuel line & carb is a royal pain.

    “Make sure you run it dry of fuel before you store it.” Or just use it on a regular basis so that it always has reasonably fresh gas in it.

    Or use a fuel stabilizer in the tank. I’m partial to Sta-Bil brand but there are others. Good for 12 month storage of gas. 1-2 oz(depending upon product) typically teats from 5-10 gallons.

    I don’t see any rat traps around the food buckets. Just saying.

    Plus, they are fresh, free, organically raised food! Oh, and get enough of them and you have a fur coat!

    “get enough of them and you have a fur coat!” Or at least a fur penis cozy. 😉

    Oh Guffaw!!!!! ROTF in hysterics. It will be a very special day when Joel posts his rat fur willie warmer photos. Won’t that be a wonderful addition to his Joel’s Gulch calendar.

To the stake with the heretic!
