What did you FIND today?

Postby felixx » Thu Jan 08, 2015 4:54 am

What did you find? I mean like walking along the path and picked it up?

I was driving yesterday and saw a welding mask on the road

Did a quick u turn and found it was a nice auto darkening one

It is even nicer to use than my Miller!

Good find, Felixx. :thumbsup:

The day before yesterday I came across a good clean roadkill possum. Fresh frozen.
Had the neighbors over for dinner. It was delicious. :yes:

Hallelujah! A fellow pack-rat like me. Gotta tell the missus that this behaviour is NORMAL then.

Well...it wasn't today, but some of my roadside finds were; a child’s picnic table, a pair of binoculars, a $20 bill, and lots of tools (found separately).

I picked up an old wardrobe back in NZ that was made of hand sawn kauai that some idiot had been growing weed in.
Took me about a month after work to restore it but I had it valued at 2600.00 .
Absolutely amazing craftsmanship

Due to the near freezing weather here in So Calif, my dogs hate going outside to do their business. This morning I woke up to find that they had left me a present on the carpet, just inside of the door. So, I found poop.............ah, poop!

Roly, the gift left by the dog was their way of saying, "I know it's cold out and you don't want to go out either" So this is for you! :lol:

was driving to my Neice's birthday party friday
Saw a solar panel on the road on the ashley river bridge. Had a dairy tanker up my butt so couldnt stop
got over the bridge and pulled over, the truck going the other way smashed it to pieces :cry:

My wife was very sympathetic

In other news I scored enough free foam to insulate my TD today

Have not found anything worth stopping for lately, but a while back I did find a almost new hitch receiver 2" plug in with a 2" ball, evidently some one forgot to put the pin in and lost it over the railroad tracks near the shop. My daughter borrowed my trailer a while back to move some furniture and needed one....the trailer came back but not the plug in. :thinking:

Hey Roly,

Maybe it's not the cold but the breed? I have some friends who used to have a toy Pomeranian, "Duffy", that hated grass. To do its business, it'd walk down their long front walk to the driveway, then down the driveway to the road, and then walk along the edge of the road a ways and then do its 'doody'! Once finished, he then retraced his steps to get back inside.

Cheers,
Norm/mezmo

Some time back we were in Auckland helping Dales parents move house. We were on our way back to the old house to get another load, following Dales brother. He had taken a different route through another suburb this time, an area I didn't know. Next thing Dale yells stop, stop, stop. I thought what have I run over? :shock: She said that chair over there is just what I want for the library. They were having an inorganic collection and a woman had just put a wing back chair on a stack. A quick doughnut in the truck and grab it before anyone else could get to it.
