Yeah- but a mess with a cranky, hissing cat in the middle of it.  ::)

Just got back from a ride up to Cow Hampshire and back (up on Thurs, back today). Roads up there are a bit rough but what is it with the locals riding in the left lane? Is that the practice there or something? I thought there was a lot of that going on in CT until going to NH. I pulled up behind one of them doing 10 under the limit, gave a flick of the high beams, the driver pulled over (about 18 yrs. old and so small she was sitting with her head below the headrest) and when I went by, she flipped me off. ?? Whats up with that? She was cranky because I disturbed her nap or something?

It was nice to see the speed limit up to 70 MPH though- I do not know when that was done but it was new to me.

I lost a very tiny screw today.  I knew where I put it and it just wasn't there anymore.

Dropped bolts and screws get teleported to the same place lost socks go. Plus, have you ever seen the infamous one shoe laying on the side of the road? It's mate went to the same place as the other stuff.  :o

Or possibly here...  I can say that there were no Great Danes on the premises but there were plenty of cats.

Drop any small object while in the engine room on board a tug or ship and it absolutely without fail fall straight through the closest gap or hole in our deck plating system and down into the bilges.... Multi-Tools & Flashlights are my favorite things to drop into the 9-foot deep bilges in my engine room.....

Dropped bolts and tools roll to the exact geographic center underneath the vehicle if they don't land in the spot where light or vision is impossible and the space is exactly one half the dimension of your hand or finger.

Or exactly 1 inch farther away than the length you can reach, even with any easily accessible tool...

What I find worse is the stuff I drop that does NOT hit the floor at all. Then I have to wonder for days, weeks or longer..... is it sitting in the fairing or the bottom of the fan shroud?

Bit of a change here.  What drives me crazy?  The fact that I'm 64, spent 46 successful years working , and now cannot get a single person/company  to hire me for any level of work.   Seems I have nothing to offer anymore.  Not whining, actually kinda pi$$ed that The Pendulum swung from one side to the other in no time at all, but getting it to swing back is taking so much longer.   FWIW, I came from a small industry, and someone an my last company has been doing/saying some illegal things, to keep me from returning, to compete with them.  Impossible to prove, but true none the less.  OK, rant over... tomp

Oh yeah, I hate the dropped calls that happen to regularly on my cell phone...   tp
