he cut through a wall with the water and electric still turned on and was upset when sparks flew and water sprayed because it didnt "handle" those.... wow! some people need not be given access to tools... oh and even though it got shocked and soaked my sawzall (milwaukee) lives today still... its great wgen you want to turn a skoolie seat into a bench

yeah like the guys that destroyed my first bus!! by dirzzling gas onto the air cleaner lid on their Classic chevelle to get it started.. (this technique allows just a little gas to run down the bolt into the carb) the top came off the gas can gas went everywhere.... they started the car......

So I took a job this week. A buddy of mine is building a 14 stall barn. Brutal heat and the sun is unrelenting. Will be nice to have some bus money again.

Absolutely brutal here in South Texas too.

I keep telling myself "its that DRY heat" and cracking up. People think I'm nuts.

Yesterday was my first day. An hour in the sun and I was overheated and puked my guts out. Was tough, but today was better. Still, this heat is crazy.
I picked a horrible summer to start a constuction job for sure, but I need the money. I've also picked up a couple yards to mow.
