I was cleaning out the shed the other day. I came across a fertilizer

assembly. I first thought, chuck it. Then I said, wait, you might need
something off that. So I pitched it in my Sanford Yard.

Wouldn't you know, I needed to come up with a throttle assembly for a welder
motor. The lever handle (complete with tensioner knob, rod, and hardware)
was perfect!

It never fails that if I throw something away, I need it in three days.
This time, I went against myself, and it worked out. My wife still thinks
I'm nuts, so I just don't tell her any more. I'm lucky I have the space for
a bone yard, and some times when I walk around there I find all sorts of
"new" things that I had completely forgotten I had.

Senility has its upsides.



Yes, you can hide your own Easter eggs. This is ok, as long as
someone reminds you to go find them ALL before they go bad.
