theft bizarre
« on: August 12, 2017, 07:53:31 PM »
Hi.Guys.I am not losing it yet but the things that go missing tend to make me think so.Last weekend I took a brand new roll of Gorilla tape to the claim.I had TJ put it under a bucket in our leanto.I watched him hide it.This morning he asked if he could use some tape for a boat he was building.He always asks first.I replied it is under the bucket.No it was not.I leave fishing rods and gear and all kinds of tools,axes, saws etc.in that shelter.Nothing was missing except that roll of tape.Now I no the wee forest folk love to hide things on me but that tape was way to heavy for them.This sort of thing happens every couple months.Last fall my folding aluminum ladder disappered.understandable being aluminum but they left the the 800.00 dollar chainsaw that was with the ladder behind???Makes no sence..Do I have a ghost or is somebody just screwing with me?Totally baffled,thinking of a trail cam.Luck,Mcbain.
I started out with nothing Istill have most of it.

Don't feel too bad. You know those long-handled squeegees that truckers use at the truck stops? I bought one last month - the nice kind with strong, extending aluminum handle. Went to use it today for the first time - nowhere to be found. Spent 3 hours looking for the dang thing. Was about ready to ship the wife off to Africa or something!

Hmm.....what's this?!?!?  ???

There in a storage trailer, right behind a 6' aluminum straightedge, was the squeegee. Hmm, no wonder I didn't see it. I was looking for an aluminum handle, certain that it would stand out. But no, it was being shy and hiding behind another piece of aluminum..........right where I put it!  ^#! [^Crazy!#]

Maybe the wife needs to ship ME off to Africa!!  [&whistle#]

Yesterday when trying to get my freshly rebuilt Onan started for the first  time the starter was acting up. So off comes the solenoid, blew some solvent into one of the screw holes. A bunch of black crap washes out, repeat this procedure until I'm getting clear solvent coming out.

Nice hot day so I set the solenoid down to dry out in the sun, came in for a quick coffee then went back out to reasemble the starter. Ha, spent the rest of the day and most of the evening looking for that damn solenoid, then again this morning.

Late this afternoon took a buggered up arc welder to the dump, as I'm off loading the old burnt out welder there, right there inside the truck box is that solenoid I had spent hours looking for.

I already figured of the solvent cleaned out enough crap to make the solenoid work it would be a temporary fix, fortunate;y I had taken and written the part number into my note book before misplacing it.  I no longer trust anything to memory.

My wife calls it male induced blindness. And my old man always said a short pencil is better than a long memory.
