  • I'll have the same.

    Well, I think I've been snoockered. I bought some "locking" jump rings for a necklace with an integral chain. I want to buff it, but attached chains are a really safety hazard on buffers unless handled correctly. They like to get wrapped around the shaft and lop a finger or two off. When I saw these no-solder locking rings, I thought great, no chain board or polishing holders getting in the way.

    I've bought over-priced, work-hardened jump rings. The only differences I can see between these and the mass produced rings I buy from Rio are: The wire was twisted or drawn to harden it before being wrapped on the sizing mandrel. They were cut at a slight angle (to resist outward pulling) with a fine kerf blade, rather than the grotesquely huge disks most other places use. They are exactly what I'd make at my bench with my worn-out drill bit jump ring mandrels and saw, except these come with a big mark-up.

    Live and learn. Or in my case live, LOL.

          You're supposed to be home -- cleaning the house and cooking a nice romantic dinner for the little woman -- after taking the kids to grandma's for the evening. The sparkling adult beverage of choice needs to be on ice and the chocolates on stand by....

          • Well , I'll tell you what my beautiful wife told me ! She said she absolutely hates valentines day and if I even mentioned anything romantical today she'd put me in the dog house for the rest of the year ! She hates it if you get her flowers , cause you just get to watch them die. She asks for no pressure to get gifts or any of that garbage ! LOL That's why I made her mocs 5 days before and the same goes for mothers day ( although a few days before I got her a horse a few years back )Birthaversary and Christmas are the onliest 2 holidays in the year ! I guess we just have our own rules !

            Now , about that ice cream !
            I believe blood quantums are the governments way to breed us out of existance !


            They say blood is thicker than water ! Now maple syrup is thicker than blood , so are pancakes more important than family ?

            There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

            Somebody is out there somewhere, thinking of you and the impact you made in their life.
            It's not me....I think you're an idiot !

                • I'm craving some watermelon mint aqua fresca. Oh, well July and ripe melons are coming, just five more months.

                  Dang the cat "wars" started again. My Siamese girl and the 3 legged adolescent are at it again. They play so rough. They hiss and shriek and roll around. It sounds like a real cat fight, but no body really bites or claws. I keep running in when the growling starts to break it up and they look at me like I'm ruining their fun.

                  Last night at 3:21am, they decided to flip a dining room chair over. After I leapt out of my bed and my skin, making a freaking skylight in roof, I found the Siamese leaping from chair back to chair back, while the other one kept reaching up with her only front paw to grab the Siamese's tail.

                  Now they're whacking each through the legs of the ottoman. Occasionally taking a break to chase each other into the livingroom, jumping over my elderly male cat, who is laying in the doorway. He keeps letting out this harassed meow as they fly over his head.

                    LOL! I have a perfect visual of that. Cats are crazy. I bet it scared the bejeebers out of you when the chair went over.

                        Cleaning the house is my job all year and so is doing the laundry.

                        Cooking is her thing and I'm not allowed to cook. That's ok though because she isn't allowed in my office/workshop/empire of dirt - but that doesn't stop her from going in and taking my tools and not putting them back! I usually find them as I'm cleaning the house.

                        • It doesn't matter whether or not one lives in a community property state, hubby's tools are always community property.

                          I'd ask for a nice salty snack, but the cats put my off my food.

                          Last night, I'm on my bed chatting on the phone. I hear Ishtato, my Siamese, making that muffled kitty victory cry. For the almost two years I've owned her, this has meant: "Lookie, lookie, I caught my toy. Aren't I clever and beautiful?" So, I don't respond to the cry as an alert to, what OSHA would call, a potential biohazard spill. However, last night Ishtato meant: "We have a mouse in the house; but don't worry, I took care of it."

                          Singing her victory song, she ran in and jumped on my bed with said mouse hanging tail-end out of her mouth. Before I could hang up, fetch the Meow Luau, and trade treats for corpse, Olivia, the three legged adolescent, gets in the mix. She hopped up to Ishtato and sank her teeth into the back half of the mouse. A tug of war ensued.

                          The pulling force of two cats, exceeded the tensile strength of the mouse corpse in about 5 seconds. We went straight from yield point to ultimate failure. Did I mention the on my bed part?

                          Once bisected, the mouse lost its appeal. They dropped the bits and ran off to chase each other. Neither one helped with burial at sea or the laundry.

                            That is like something from a cartoon that Cartoon Network would play late at night! I'm fairly certain that if that happened in my house I'd probably just record it with my phone and make a killing off of it going viral on YouTube.

                            We actually had a small mouse problem last week. A pregnant mouse got into the house and hid in a small closet and gave birth to 5 pups. Our cat went nuts but never caught one. I ended up using Victor snap traps on 4 of them and caught 2 by hand - 1 I inured in the process so I had to send it to the netherworld and the other I had by the tail and took tossed it over a fence into a near by industrial lot.

                            • I'll never be the one to make the modern equivalent the Zapruder film. If I had tried to film it with my phone -- be aware I have the last operating flip phone on planet Earth -- I'd have filmed my feet and lap while I grappled with the inconveniently located switch. The only thing I've filmed with my phone has been the inside of my purse and the ceiling of my lab.

                              Meanwhile, I'll have something for breakfast that's not a sweetroll. But first pass the hand sanitizer, this hotel lobby keyboard is gross.
