Uh.... does Maryse know you left the saw on the dining room table next to the good dishes and the candelabra?
nonamedufus said…
It's actually the work bench in the basement where we store everything from old dishes to candle sticks.
nonamedufus said…
And old. I've had that for close to 40 years. Back when they invented electricity.
Cheryl said…
It's good to have my questions answered before I have to ask them. (Thanks Paula & Dufus.)


So glad you posted this shot because it gives me an opportunity to be nosy. What do you create using your power tools?
Paula Wooters said…
And here I was thinking it was my little ax that had roughed up your dining room table.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, no. My workbench is actually an old door.
nonamedufus said…
Not much. Haven't used it in years...my power tools.
Cheryl said…
Neither has Rick. For a couple of years after we first moved into this house, he did some remodeling work. Nothing fancy but necessary for our sanity.
ladyV said…
looking sharp. i thought about going to sears to photograph something that says craftsman, but darn the time.
nonamedufus said…
I've had this saw for ages. It's seen a lot of wood...and finger tips!
nonamedufus said…
I'm getting on. I just can't do the stuff I used to.
Laughing Mom said…
Excellent idea! The table looks like a potential juggling act - saw, candlestick, dishes...
meleahrebeccah said…
What a GREAT photo!!
Ziva said…
Oh my, what a big saw you have, dufus.
nonamedufus said…
It's a work bench. Should be called a storage bench. It seems to collect all the things we don't use.
nonamedufus said…
It's a good thing it's a close up. A wider view would have shown you how messy I am.
nonamedufus said…
You know what they say about a man with a big saw...
Ziva said…
He only has nine fingers?
nonamedufus said…
No, they say "look at that man with a big saw". What did you think they'd say.
Linda Medrano said…
I have no idea what that is, but it's a great photo of a thing I don't recognize. Nicely done, Dufus!
nonamedufus said…
I guess anything that's not a pair of pumps is kinda foreign to you, eh, Linda? It's an electric circular saw made by Craftsman.
Jamie Baker said…
I've messed up many a cut with a saw just like that.
nonamedufus said…
Measure twice cut once. right?
Lauren said…
Nice shot. Is it something use use regularly? Not like in Chain Saw Massacre or anything. Personally, I like to stay away from sharp things with motors.
nonamedufus said…
Actually, i haven't used it in years. I'm surprised I remembered I still had it.
mike said…
That's a craftsman all right!
nonamedufus said…
Let there be no doubt.
Perfect, perfect perfect! And I want one!
Junebug said…
I was going to ask, "Whatcha making?" but it looks like you need to make a china cabinet so you can have your workbench free. :-)
MikeWJ said…
I love the hand rotary saw. Not only is it useful, it's scary as hell. Every time I pick one up, I can't but wonder if I'm about to lose some fingers, or a hand, or take an eye out. It makes me feel alive. Nice work, NoName.
MIkeWJ said…
Sure you can. Just hire somebody to do it for you, and then boss them around. It's very gratifying, trust me.
nonamedufus said…
You can have this one. I haven't used it in years.
nonamedufus said…
Actually I think we need to have a garage sale. Or buy a larger house.
nonamedufus said…
My middle finger on my right hand is shorter than my middle finger on my left. Thanks, Craftsman.

The Worst Christmas Present Ever

My pals over at Tribal Blogs are holding their first Blog Carnival today and the subject is the worst Christmas present ever. Remember Ralphie in the movie A Christmas Story ? His, as my readers point out, Aunt Clara sent him a bunny costume. Yeah, it sure sucked to be him. Hey sometimes Christmas doesn't work out for some of us. Look at my grandsons last Christmas. Things went from this... ...to this... Heh, heh. That's one picture my daughter doesn't want to share too widely. So keep quiet about it, okay? When I was a kid, Christmas was such a special time. The snow outside, the tree, the lights, the food, visiting relatives and neighbours. And of course the presents. My own kids loved Christmas too and would pore through the Sears Wish Book Catalogue as soon as it arrived in the mail, dog-earing pages upon pages of pictures of gifts they wanted for Christmas. And they were pretty lucky. They usually got most of what they asked for. Today the grandkids are lucki

Sometimes You're the Bug...

I don't know who first came up with it but it's a marvellous saying. Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug. It's like sometimes you win, sometimes you lose...but far more descriptive. I mean have you ever had it happen to you? You're driving along as the sun's just gone down. You turn on your lights in the dusk and the bugs just seem to flock to your windshield, drawn as if by a magnet. Now, of course, you're faced with a choice. Do you just leave them be or do you flip on the windshield wipers and shoot windshield wiper fluid at your windshield. If it's ever happened to you, you know this is a no-win situation. Trying to clean them off usually makes it worse. You better hope you find a gas station...or a guy at the side of the road who wants a dollar...with a squeegee. That's the only way. And, of course, the bug never wins. It's always the windshield that comes out on top. When I was a kid, though, riding my bik
