  •  Temporarily out of energy :o( (7+ / 0-)

    I had so hoped to post pictures of a finished re-bricked front walk, but I've had to give up and hope to hire someone to re-do it.  Not enough oomph to figure out the edging and get it completed.  This after getting past half-way on a 50' (or so) path!

    Scored a new workbench at an auction -- two 5' or so pieces, hand built, heavy wood tops -- for 50 cents each piece, i.e., a single dollar.  Plus another (about 4 feet long) with bowling alley wood top for $3.  Now I must clean out two garages, well, okay, I want to clean them out but must get one under control to fit the work benches in.  Health problems are putting a crimp in my summer plans. :o(  The only up-side I've found so far is that when I make mistakes or forget something, I get to hollar "I'm demented!"  :o)

    A friend told me about a way to get rid of ground squirrels / chipmunks that he discovered by accident, then found on the intertubz:  a 5 gallon bucket set out with 5 or 6 inches of water in it.  I am overrun with the critters, set a bucket out yesterday and this morning found one drowned in it.  Now I have to find the stomach to dispose of the carcass.
