Re: Totally Random Thoughts... (Part II)


Was at my son and daughter in laws place visiting them and my grandson and of course she had a list of things for me to do, as usual.

Had to fix a couple of drawers, change out a toilet flapper and install a new post mount for the mailbox.

The lack of tools around there sucks. I gave them a Makita drill kit with 2 batteries and a charger, a set of drill bits and some screwdriver bits and accessories. Went to use the drill and the battery is dead. Asked for the other battery and it's at her work. She ended up getting it and I was able to fix her drawers.

I brought my Milwaukee impact wrench with me in case we get a flat tire. We used the impact wrench to try to remove the old broken metal bracket off the post of the mailbox. But the nuts were rusted on and I needed a wrench. She came out with pliers. Tried it and not a chance. Went inside and found a small adjustable crescent wrench. And same thing, nope. Just ended up cutting the 4x4 post just above the metal bracket.

So on the way home I went on Amazon and found a cheap but nicely rated SAE/Metric box wrench set and sent it to their house.

Should have sent the set to yourself, bring it with you each trip. You know what you need will be gone from the kit next time you need it.

Luckily all 3 of our children are good at keeping and taking care of tools.

Re: Totally Random Thoughts... (Part II)


What do I need it for? I have two of a similar set. If I brought the truck I'd have whatever I needed. But we drove the wife's car this time. Plus they need to have some basic tools up there.

Wait until you get there next time expecting to have a set to use....(then again you may get lucky and they won't open it).

Next time the plan is to bring the truck. Need to bring up some furniture. If it doesn't rain or snow on the way up like it did this time.

Big fan of the smaller courses. We got a farm courses out here that is a bring your own beer. thumbs up. the fairway is usually trashed but the putting greens ain't bad considering it's just a retired farmer running it.

That's just about what the course is I just posted. Hadley Acres. Owned by friends I've known since we were all kids. Their parents started it in 1947. All farms on all sides, and the really tiny village of Hadley.

We got a sh!t ton of golf courses around here. always have. Must be a couple hundred. Them, small ski hills, bowling alleys.
