    Sliced up a 10 lb smoked ham and a 10lb smoked turkey for sammitch meat. Beats the heck out of paying 7 bux a pound at the deli counter. Wrap in wax paper then vac seal and freeze.

    I didn't put anything away but I found a source for clean restaurant buckets.I also put no flat wheels on my generator. Best investment IMO. They are lighter then the original wheels on the generator and after multiple flats, these things are great. And they roll nicely.

    Those tires are the cat's meow! Did the same thing with our genny last year...no more digging out the air hose.

    Finally found some subsonic .22 CB shorts...hens' teeth are more common ;)
    Also acquired a stovetop oven for the wood stove.

    Nothing. We havent put anything away for the last couple months. But we rarely do this time of year. Just been focusing on financials and trying to get this new component working right. Once its done We hope to start building the house on our land.

    I did manage to procure another 10 gal cask and put some wheated bourbon in it.

    Didn't put anything away yet other than over buying at the store like we do every week, but I did clean up the threads on the frame so that we can put a hitch on the SUV. $12 for the right size thread tap and the weld nuts are good as new. Took 20 minutes and saved me I don't know how much over having the shop do it.

    Won't be putting the hitch on yet as the wife was rear ended on Friday and they'll need to fix the bumper for us, and I figure one less thing for them to have to work around. But I'll be putting it on instead of the u-haul dealer and save ANOTHER $135. :)

    I inked a new job deal this week..... picked up a nice increase in pay, cut my commute in half and opened some doors for future growth. I have to give my notice pretty quick....dreading that, yet looking forward to new challenges!!

    Be happy you had a new one landed before the door shut behind you on the old one. Hope it works. Remember to tell your boss you want his job and will make him look so good that the brass will promote him and get him out of your way to his chair.

    Those solid tires are also great for wheel barrows.

    I picked up a big warmer/roaster at a garage sale for $10. It works great!

    Looks like I"ll be garage sale cruising tomorrow, supposed to go over 100 (dry bulb) and I don't have a/c in the house, but do in the p/u. Hopefully, I'll come home with something to put away this week.

    I've been wanting to try cheese making and I hope the roaster will maintain temperature well enough for those long waits at elevated temperatures.
