This rockin chair really gets the wonderin going:
Law 1: when stoppin a machine to grease it, the fittings mostly point down. Sometimes away from you.
Law 2: the center of gravity of an untied garbage sack is somewhere just above the sack. If the sack is tied the center of gravity is still purty near the top but I have never found it as I can't git it untied.
Law 3: when droppin the drain plug in the pan of oil, the plug will lay near the far corner, unless if you know that and reach for it, it is always in the near corner.
Law 4: Never try to lick a frozen pump handle, especially if your sister is hurrying to get water for supper.
Law 5: time used to be real undependable, like in sometimes negative time, how else, when you are kid, could dinner been ready a half hour before you stopped playing?
What's yer laws?

If you lost your daddy's tools in the yard then your son will do the same,, genetics.

Only when you drop something in the floor board will a mailbox run out in front of you.

Electricity makes you cuss faster. Even if you never cuss.

It's not just a good idea.
It's the law...

Ollie - Here's a list    Posted 04-26-2002 at 10:09:21       [Reply]  [No Email]
Good Timing!! A friend of mine sent this to me yesterday:

-Once over the hill, you pick up speed.
-I love cooking with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food.
-If it weren't for STRESS I'd have no energy at all.
-Whatever hits the fan will not be evenly distributed.
-Everyone has a photographic memory. Some just don't have film.
-I know God won't give me more than I can handle. I just wish He didn't trust me
so much.
-Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.
-Some days are a total waste of makeup.
-If the shoe it in every color.
-If you're too open minded, your brains will fall out.
-Just going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.
-If you look like your passport picture, you probably need the trip.
-Bills travel through the mail at twice the speed of checks.
-Men are from earth. Women are from earth. Deal with it.
-A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand.
-Middle age is when broadness of the mind and narrowness of the waist change places.
-Opportunities always look bigger going than coming.
-Junk is something you've kept for years and throw away three weeks before you need it.
-Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.
-By the time you can make ends meet, they move the ends.
-Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't live long enough to make them all yourself.

The only time you can find even one of the thousand 9/16" combination wrenches you are sure you have "somewhere" is when your trying to turn a 1/2" nut or bolt in the dark.

Talkin bout 9/16" wrenches got me ta thinkin bout how many I left under the trailer or truck after adjusting the slack adjusters on the brakes. I finally got smart and weldesd a small chain to one that had a snap coupler on the other end, that was snapped ta my belt. Then when I crawled out the wrench came with me.

And no matter which end of the truck you crawl under from, you are on the wrong side of the axel to reach the slack adjuster

The only way I can find a missing tool, is to go buy a new one. The wayward one will be sitting in plain sight by the time I get home.

right on then the tool goes on sale the next day

That must be why I have about a hundred 9/16" wrenches. Hows the weather down there Dan? Looks like I'm gonna have to mow my 5 acre pasture soon. Two hosses just can't keep up with it.

Dan G/Soganofla    Posted 04-26-2002 at 21:53:01       [Reply]  [No Email]
Weather's been beautimous down here. I'm behind on my mowing already. We've already had temps in the low 90's, skeeters is thriving, hosses is all slicked out. Life be good!

Without exception when I drop a nut or bolt or anything at any workbench it will ALWAYS roll underneath the bench causing me to go onto my hands and knees to retreive said item only to find it mixed with thousands, well maybe hundreds of other "things".....never fails.

And of course in front of the workbench will be metal cuttings from recent drilling, etc., and also oil drips and blobs of grease that came from ?? maybe an alien ship. Since you have dripped or dropped any there in some time.

Yeah, and ever notice how the color of the lost part changes a little to blend with the floor?

I think thats called the "chameleon factor",which also is predominate in small screws etc dropped in the grass when workin outside.It can be overcome to a point by a "cow magnet" glued into the end of a counterbored 3'length of 1" broom handle.A small "cup hook" screwed into the opposite end is useful too.
