Fitting that the writer couldn't bring himself to putting the #1 next to Beaver Stadium.

I hear ya on leaving them in the car. Every. Time. When you say a few around the house, you probably mean a few dozen.

Some damn good times. That thread really made me appreciate the scrolling action of Android. Way faster than my work iPhone.

Hmm. How about a regular ole' reusable bag? Can be made of plastic if you'd like.

Sorry, all I can think about when I hear R Kelly is the South Park episode and the Dave Chappelle skits. Drip drip drip...

My old neighbor and I have pretty extensive tool sets, mine more with wood and his for metal and welding. It was great because if one of us didn't have the tool, the other one did. Worked out great.

Weather finally cooled off today. How long you back in Ohio?

Paper, plastic, or your own reusable fair trade hemp grocery bag?

Thick and doughy is never the wrong answer.

Hahahha, I have one of those. Good for checking batteries or other random readings. Helped me with customer support when my solar attic fan was crapping out; provided the reading and they sent me a new fan motor assembly for free. I wouldn't use it for scientific research but it works.

Ive had good luck with Ridgid brand tools as Home Depot will stand by them. Mitre saw, drill/driver set, nailer, a few more. Have a real nice Hitachi hand saw (magnesium) that HD actually had repaired for me for free when the depth/bevel adjustment came loose. I like to buy quality, mid-grade tools for the most part, but Harbor Freight is good for the disposable stuff. Then again, I may or may not have used the free tool rental option at HD and Lowes (they knew me as a regular at their return desk a few years back....) I justified buying decent to nice tools when we bought a house in 2010 and I did most of the work myself. What I saved in labor and materials that weren't marked up easily justified what I spent. Beside, any self respecting homeowner should have a few of the basics.
