  1. And real string mops. Can’t find either in town. All the store have are thin aluminum poles with an oversized dish sponge hot glued to the end. Brooms are just as sad. 
    What happened to proper broom straw brooms and string mops? I want string mop that looks like an angora sheep on the end of a pole. And a broom handle should be made of wood and thick enough to be a pry bar if need be.

    What’s your wood? We’ve been burning piñon wood. The scent is notable. You can tell when someone has it in their fireplace. 

    Last night was mostly oak.
    Since this is an outside fire and I don’t have to worry about creosote I’ll burn anything but rhododendron in it.

    I love Ford Rangers by the way.  Great little truck.  Wish someone still built a basic simple truck without all the bells and whistles.

    I’m going to look at the Maverick. Although my friend Clayton calls it the Ford Black & Decker.

    I was expecting the Ford to break in two.

    That is the definition of a beater. More zip ties than truck at this point; fueled on faith.

    Yeah - highway like the 5 or 405 or 95 in rush hour?  NO EFFING WAY.  In fact, I would keep driving to an exit.  My crappy standard wheels are replaceable!

    I hear you. Spaghetti Junction in Atlanta, yeah, I’d dig a rut with the brake caliper to the next exit. Even if my car was on fire there would be a moment of consideration, do I bale, or do I turn the AC on full blast and see if that buys me enough time to get the hell off of this thing.
