    a bunch of Ampzillae! :o
    EDIT: Ooops, they're SAE amps, but not really all that different (Bongiorno was at SAE prior to starting GAS).

    Oh, and that entry level single-motor AKAI reel to reel looks really out of its league in that stack of stuff. :|

    Roadside find.

    Mowing my grass, I spotted picket fencing down my street looking like it's out for trash pick-up.

    I stop mowing and go down there to see why nice fencing is at the road leaning on 2 trash totes. Yup, it looks like it's getting tossed.

    I see the man and his wife on their front porch and I walk toward them and he comes out to meet me.

    He said yes, they are getting tossed. I told him I'd like to take them home and he said he had some posts to give me that goes with them. He had 3 posts. 2 ends and one middle one. o:)
    No caps though.

    I brought them home and decided to place them on the left side of my house instead of the right side of the cottage for one and no idea yet of the other one. They measured just right for their new destination.

    I bought 3 caps the other night. I planned on making boxes to set these posts into so I can lift them out for any reason later on. OK, I have vinyl boards I was going to make boxes out of BUT...this morning I go out to look at the area I planned to set the fencing up at and I see my neighbor from across the street walking on the road in front of me.

    He came to me and said the city cut his water off. He doesn't owe them anything. We walked back to his front yard and looked at the freshly painted meter box lid and a blue arrow on the street pointing at it. Weird...

    My neighbor said the City guy would be there shortly.

    NOW, 20' from his meter was a pile of treated boards in front of the next neighbor's yard down the street. There were a bunch of 1X8 3' and 4' boards. Most were pretty good too. My frugal brain said to use these 1x8's instead of my $$$$ plastic board material.

    I needed 12 boards and there were 15. :Do:)

    2 were warped bad so I left them there. I have one spare now.

    The City came and we went back to see what happened with the water turn-off. The man said the NEXT neighbor down ( where the treated scraps of boards were) was the target. THEY didn't pay their water bill. The guy found the other meter hidden under a bunch of leaves, turn theirs's off and my neighbor's back on, PLUS, the guy said the City will give him a deduction for his inconvenience. :D

    I cut the boards to what I wanted and them ripped them with my table saw. The assembly went well. Digging the holes went easy too. I screwed bungies to the boxes so I could drop them down and pull them back up easily. It was a VERY productive day.

    I like FREE road finds. So I have 26.00 into the caps.

    I now have to clean the dirty fencing and posts and screw the bottom of one picket back to the bottom rail. Not bad.

    The posts and fencing was probably 250.00.

    Mostly, I like the style of it and it lets the breeze flow through the yard. ;)

    The house's foundation is why I didn't get any closer to the house. :#

    "Higher Logic" and Vanilla are two words that will never be associated together in reality. Who are they kidding?

    Enough about that. How about a closeup of a longhorn beetle's face?
