  • Floor stripes I can probably handle on my own. Dan would say otherwise, but then he's never seen my paint spilling abilities. Never clean up, just brush it around. Unless it's on your nice hardwood floors. Then hustle like mad to clean up the mess. But we don't talk about that around here...

    BTW, have I ever told you just how much I hate painting?...

        A Picasso of the paint gun, the Michelangelo of the motor car, the da Vinci of da automobile, the van Gogh of the van garage, the Ruben of Ramblers, the Velazquez of the Vega, the Rockwell of Renault.

        Everyone knows about Michelangelo painting the Ceiling of the Sisteen Chapel. But his younger brother Donniangelo was commissioned by the Vatican to paint the walls.

        So he mixed the paint, and started on the walls. About halfway through the job, he realized that he might not have mixed enough paint, so he thinned out the remaining paint. But it didn't cover as well, and when he was about 3/4 finished with the job, he was even more worried that he was running low on paint. So he thinned the rest of the paint and stretched it to the end. Of course when it was finished and had dried, it looked like I had painted it, being about 4 or 5 different shades.

        Now big brother Michelangelo had yet to start on the ceiling, as he was at a loss for what it should look like. Right about then, there was a flash of light, and a peel of thunder. A heavenly hand came out of a mist, pointing at poor Donniangelo. And in a crashing voice, the lord said to him:

        wait for it:

        wait:

        wait:

        "Repaint, and thin no more!"

        And Michelangelo had his divine inspiration for the mural on the ceiling...

                      Let's see: I'm probably the most like Curly, Dan has straight hair like Mo, so captain you will have to get a perm so that you will look like Larry. Woo, woo, woo, woo!

                      Only thing is, I can't do that thing where I lay on the floor on my shoulder and spin... But I have the ability to slap a paint brush across a face, or make a cake with a feather pillow, or glue for syrup, or...

                          I like the red one. Although the Mini pickemup would be fun. But no, I have enough projects already!

                              • Woo hoo! Finally figured out the wiring of the rotary drum switch to the motor to get the lathe to have reverse. So now I have to make a support arm for the switch and actually run the wiring in sealtite flexible conduit.

                                There's a small creek in the woods outback. Too bad it's not enough flow to run a waterwheel. I'd so run the garage on water power. Line shaft, leather belts flapping dangerously in the garage, idler pulley system, and all the rest. Get rid of this imaginary power called electricity! Oxy-fuel welding, or forge welding. And steam power for the Whatever project.

                                Doble style system. Go a lot further on a tank of water than a Stanley Steamer. Nice and quiet. Like Joe Walsh's song, Analog Man, a troglodyte, or is that a Luddite? A troglodytic luddite? Or a ludditic troglodyte? Whatever, that's me...
