I love sour cream and onion Pringles.

Well, basically I wanted to subscribe to this thread and that’s the last thing I ate.

At approx 4 PM, at McDonald's drivethru, person in front of me paid for my order.

So I did the same for whoever was behind me.

That is all carry on.

Re: Things I Love (2)


That I've saved probably $150.00 on paint brushes.

I'm the worst there is for cleaning a paint brush. I won't do it in a customer's sink and always tell myself...I'll take care of that later. Later never comes.

I had 10-12 quality brushes that were latex-covered and as hard as rocks...some a year or two old.

I read a recent post about using Klean Strip brush cleaner and bought a gallon.

Spent maybe a half hour with all the brushes and they are like new...ready for the next use.

I thought when I saw the build out, "They should put a guard cage on that clutch."

I guess I was correct. Cool build!

I did that with an old Purdy brush filled with dried oil base paint. Just used plain old Klean Strip stripper, probably the same thing as the brush cleaner but thicker.

Almost as good as new.
