    Putting a "lift kit" on the little red wagon that I rebuilt before leaving California. Turns out the new wheels/tires are slightly larger in diameter, making clearances pretty small. There's enough play in the steering/front end to cause binding on uneven surfaces. Some 5/8" plywood shims and longer bolts are fixing that.
    OK I'm old but I don't see a little red wagon. ( is this one of those mess with old people tricks lol )
    Pix in a bit, after I get it re-assembled.

    Carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it, you may shoot it. If you shoot it, you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody – and he finds out about it – he may be very angry with you. --Jeff Cooper

    Bought a cordless chainsaw, one of those tiny 10” deals. I have absolutely no use for anything larger as I only bought this to do small jobs around the yard and more specifically for cutting down the ugly ass bushes behind my deck that I have no idea what they are. Best I can describe is that they look like tall wheat grass and need cut down once a year. Anyhow, that little saw is amazing. Doesn’t bog down at all and the charge lasts quite a while. Has an auto oiler too.

    I tryed one of those & had not much luck with it. Since then I bought a plug in one & liked it so well bought 4 more of those & even us it to trim branches while I am up in my bucket truck. Seems safer & lighter when hanging over the edge of the bucket. I have a few on the poles too that are plug ins too.

    Pampas grass. Wrap a ratchet strap around it, and crank it tight before cutting. Makes clean up easier. 
    Or, save the hassle and light it on fire. Talked my boss into doing that with some he had along side the drive way. Hint: it goes up RIGHT **** NOW! 
    He wasn't as amused as I was at the display of fire, but I did mention to him "hey dumbass. What did you think was gonna happen when you lit dry grass on fire?"

    Just put a shorter bar on a real saw. I have a 16" for a 61cc huskey. You cant go far, but that much powerhead on a short bar is the answer to playing out of a bucket.
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    None other!


    Here you can see the one of the added wooden spacers.


    Here's the final result - now there's some clearance around the tires, the front no longer binds turning on uneven ground - and the back just looks better. It looked kinda "slammed" before - too close to the fenders.

    Googled it and you’re right. I hate those things and they grow taller than hell. If it weren’t lining the deck so closely I would have burned it right there. That’s a good idea on tying them off before cutting. I still have some more to do once the rain stops and it’s dry enough. And just to add, a riding lawnmower with a strap around them is NOT enough to yank them from the ground.

    Im well familiar with that crap. A lady's yard I take
    care of has two clumps of that crap that I have to
    cut each year.

    That distance is a tiny, infinitesimal fraction of the miles I've put on that wagon since 1970. I'm not as young as I used to be, but it isn't really very far to the firing line - I walked it several times last year. I gotta see if it will hold everything though, otherwise I'll be beggin' for a truck ride!

    Had a nice trip to the range today. My wife went to one of those skin care parties at my sister's place. So my son and I went out for a burger and a trip to the range. Partly sunny, 76 degrees. He shot my M&P 9 and 686 Plus. I shot the Sig P220.

    He rarely shoots, so each time is almost like starting over for him. Still he did very well for someone who only shoots once a year or so. I have been dry firing my Sig every night, and I shot it better than I ever have.

    My son and I have sorta of a "Cat's in the Cradle" scenario in our lives. Time shared doing anything together is pretty rare. We meet up for a lunch or dinner from time to time, but the last time we shared an activity together was over a year ago. 

    So it was a special kinda day for me.

    Face***k was hammering my website hard yesterday. As I reject all links from there, I only get the occasional hit, but I guess someone tried to post a link in a popular area of that site.
