An idiot or prick? Idiot prick!

January 23, 2014

I pulled into work this morning to be greeted in the street by a deputy and fire truck blocking the entrance. A neighboring business had caught fire. Was over by the time I got in. Seems to be no structural damage, mostly internal.

The boss and I were going to find an available firefighter (they were done) to move one of their trucks from out lot so we could get our trucks out of the yard.

We also had an unknown car in our lot.

The first lets I we come to is a cameraman for a local news station. It was wltx, that dude was pretty cool. I’m unsure who this idiot filmed for.

My boss asks: Is that your black car over there? (Pointing toward the direction of the car).

Cameraman: (looking I direction of the area, points at the marked deputy’s car with flashing lights and deputy standing beside it) no, that’s the deputy’s.

Boss: not that one! The other one, in front of the fire truck. You can’t see it right now.

Cameraman: what car? I don’t see what you’re talking about.

Me: Did you drive a black car or any car at all and park it in that direction?!

Cameraman: no


Leatherman PST tool story

January 23, 2014

…wanted one for a while.
Finally got one.
Was gifted one with a purchase and gifted that to a friend wanting one.

Mine needed a new blade. I took it apart to replace it. Well the screw deals were very worn. Couldn’t get back together right.

Off to the West…

LM has been very helpful to me in the past. I sent in my PST with some instructions. Basically I said please fix or replace with a PST. I do not want a rebar.
I threw like $9 in the envelope. It was all the cash in my wallet. I requested I pay for my own shipping or the person fixing it buy a coffee or something.

PST arrives in mail today. Same scales/ handles because a sticker I put on there in which I wrote how to replace the tools was still intact.

From what I can tell, all new parts. Lanyard hook looks original. That’s it. That or they did a superb job cleaning them. I knows file, small screwdriver and knife are new. I think pliers too.  I think everything.

Super tight and solid. And…they returned my cash. Who does that?

I guess I will show my gratitude by buying their product and telling others. Very impressed.

Also with NiteEze and now Streamlight, but these are different stories… 

Thanks for reading.

What the crap is Rick blabbing about now?
Hey…I’ve never lead you to any junk.
This great little tool is so small that you’ll easily find a place to put it. Currently it is a crowd funded kickstarter project. Get in before it hits the market and help this creators dream come true.
Head over and get one now!

I love the comparison photo!!

Lots of chat about scopes lately. I use to diagnose issues. This is great.

Is it so hard to find that bo jangles can only offer it for a limited time? I see it in grocery store all the time.

Now a mc rib I can understand being limited. It takes a while to find an animal with meat for bones.

Sunday we rode to the mountains and enjoyed a night away. The kids really had a great time. Put me behind a little on my honing and other projects but I’m catching up.

This is cool. WATCH THE VIDEO

Angelina Jolie, Farah Abraham & Octomom all look the same. They have enough lips for 84 families.

How do they think the whole swollen look looks good?

Maybe all the sexy Facebook pictures with people poking their lips out? Yep, that’s it!
