  • life in the nethersphere

    ​lost power during the last snow event for over six days. turns out, the dang genset won't run the central air. had to rely upon the propane fireplace and a ceramic heater. of course, the propane was getting low (just about to re-order, natch).

    man, i got tired of the generator's roar (see: "dulcet").

    another storm headed our way this weekend (see: "sunday").

    me'n Lord Jeffrey are hunkering down.

    on the plus side, my b-i-l scored me a major deal on scotch in florida last month, so the g'pa juice is, uh, "considerable."

    let's play: Guess What Happened!

    Clues:

    i was using my new chainsaw (love!) to limb/cut all the trees strewn all over the sides of the driveway (the ones i cut up last week after the storm).

    i was wearing the overalls in the attached picture.



    i was limbing/cutting the last tree (of course).


    ok....guess what happened...​

          technically, Chef, that's not an actual "guess" (sort of the "key" element in the game, "Guess What Happened!").

              Believe it or not a few years ago...well more than a few, I managed to cut thru that spot on my logger jeans stopping just short of meat.

                gentlemen, these are not guesses in the spirit of the game.

                (honorable mention to bruce, tho...yikes!)

                (pb gets kudos for not defining "meat"...and we all hope he refrains so in future.)

                  You bought a Stihl chainsaw and the POS "Flippy Cap" on the bar oil was not seated properly and all of the oil leaked onto your overalls as you walked over to cut said limbs.

                  It's even more fun when it's the gas mix that leaks out all over your pants.

                    wow. that's actually EXACTLY what happened. (also, that's kinda eerie....cue the scary music).

                    i was cutting when i noticed it and it wasn't a flippy cap...just the regular cap that came off. dang, you even got the saw right; a Stihl MS170.

                    THAT, my friends, is how you make a guess.

                        ergo, the guessing game...

                            It only took me 5 years to learn to properly use my flippy caps. And i dont have the nice alignment marks on my stihl. Apparently they are prone to leak even when properly closed. Not the best idea in the world

                              yeah. my "big" saw is a husky 460...just too heavy for limbing for hours on end. i can tote the stihl around all day and keep my trails clear.
