Uh.... does Maryse know you left the saw on the dining room table next to the good dishes and the candelabra?
nonamedufus said…
It's actually the work bench in the basement where we store everything from old dishes to candle sticks.
nonamedufus said…
And old. I've had that for close to 40 years. Back when they invented electricity.
Cheryl said…
It's good to have my questions answered before I have to ask them. (Thanks Paula & Dufus.)


So glad you posted this shot because it gives me an opportunity to be nosy. What do you create using your power tools?
Paula Wooters said…
And here I was thinking it was my little ax that had roughed up your dining room table.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, no. My workbench is actually an old door.
nonamedufus said…
Not much. Haven't used it in years...my power tools.
Cheryl said…
Neither has Rick. For a couple of years after we first moved into this house, he did some remodeling work. Nothing fancy but necessary for our sanity.
ladyV said…
looking sharp. i thought about going to sears to photograph something that says craftsman, but darn the time.
nonamedufus said…
I've had this saw for ages. It's seen a lot of wood...and finger tips!
nonamedufus said…
I'm getting on. I just can't do the stuff I used to.
Laughing Mom said…
Excellent idea! The table looks like a potential juggling act - saw, candlestick, dishes...

What a GREAT photo!!
Ziva said…
Oh my, what a big saw you have, dufus.
nonamedufus said…
It's a work bench. Should be called a storage bench. It seems to collect all the things we don't use.
nonamedufus said…
It's a good thing it's a close up. A wider view would have shown you how messy I am.
nonamedufus said…
You know what they say about a man with a big saw...
Ziva said…
He only has nine fingers?
nonamedufus said…
No, they say "look at that man with a big saw". What did you think they'd say.
Linda Medrano said…
I have no idea what that is, but it's a great photo of a thing I don't recognize. Nicely done, Dufus!
nonamedufus said…
I guess anything that's not a pair of pumps is kinda foreign to you, eh, Linda? It's an electric circular saw made by Craftsman.
Jamie Baker said…
I've messed up many a cut with a saw just like that.
nonamedufus said…
Measure twice cut once. right?
Lauren said…
Nice shot. Is it something use use regularly? Not like in Chain Saw Massacre or anything. Personally, I like to stay away from sharp things with motors.
nonamedufus said…
Actually, i haven't used it in years. I'm surprised I remembered I still had it.
mike said…
That's a craftsman all right!
nonamedufus said…
Let there be no doubt.
Perfect, perfect perfect! And I want one!
Junebug said…
I was going to ask, "Whatcha making?" but it looks like you need to make a china cabinet so you can have your workbench free. :-)
MikeWJ said…
I love the hand rotary saw. Not only is it useful, it's scary as hell. Every time I pick one up, I can't but wonder if I'm about to lose some fingers, or a hand, or take an eye out. It makes me feel alive. Nice work, NoName.
MIkeWJ said…
Sure you can. Just hire somebody to do it for you, and then boss them around. It's very gratifying, trust me.
nonamedufus said…
You can have this one. I haven't used it in years.
nonamedufus said…
Actually I think we need to have a garage sale. Or buy a larger house.
nonamedufus said…
My middle finger on my right hand is shorter than my middle finger on my left. Thanks, Craftsman.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
