    The wife and kids are out tonight, and I have the house to myself. Got a load of Enfield web slings being cleaned in the washing machine, got a bucket full of old bayonets soaking in degreaser in the kitchen sink, just finished degreasing an old military stock in the bathtub, and I have a bunch of leather slings that I just finished cleaning with saddle soap and are drying on the kitchen table.

    Poor dog is looking at me like I done pissed on the carpet. Why do I have the funny feeling I will be sleeping in the garage tonight?

    All that and you'd still get to sleep under a roof in the garage? All I did was clean a transmission fluid pan from the car in the bathtub and I got to sleep under the stars in the bed of the truck. And darn if she didn't hide the air mattress that night too.

    Rebuit a 383 on the living room floor (second story) in the late 70's. All was well until I picked up a bucket and added 3 qts of oil and one quart of STP and picked up that first piston, grinning mind you.

    I made the mistake of cleaning all my gun rags in the sink the other day - hey, I don't complain when her undies are in my sink, or on the shower curtain rod... Between her and our daughter, I got alot of fenomes to deal with, so they are just gonna have to put up with a little testosterone every now & then.

    You guys need somebody like my mom. All she asks is that I clean up after I work on a rifle. Whether it is soaking a stock in the bathtub or boiling parts on the stove (by the way she got me a very nice stainless steel pot for boiling stuff).

    With a mom like that around I can't go wrong.

    As for you Bob - dang I hope you got everything cleaned up before the wife came home.

    There used to be a great wrinkle-finish paint (before EPA) you put on two coats and bake until slightly crispy, it chemically wrinkled and was as hard as a rock. So how do you answer: what is that smell coming from the oven? (It was the fiddle case cover from my '36 Knucklehead)

    we picked up about 200lbs of Pecans on year and they were a bit muddy. Dad washed them in the washing machine and got by with it till he tried to air dry them by tumbling them in the dryer. I thought it was bad when the "s hits the fan", but you should have seen it when mom hit it! :eek:
