They did! It's called BrainEater! Requires no gas or electricity or maintenance, just a paycheck and it shows up every day!

Digging is good for the sole. Dunno why. Moderation in everything though, too much digging, particularly in clay or rocky soil, can wear down even a BrainEater. They are hard to replace, so the owner should show some restraint and have the BrainEater do more shovel-lean and less shovel-dig!

Ahahahahahaha......I could not have said it better myself.

Actually took the afternoon off 'just because'.

----------

I went to fairview fittings today , and lo-and-behold , my 7/8 " flare nuts were in :





So I can start plumbing when the tanks ready.

I think I will have to have the tank backplate drilled and threaded for me , I don't have the right tools......Might just buy em tho , we'll see.

Liar, liar, pants on Fire - you said no updates for the next week! But that's great news - those were the last missing bits, right?

Yessir.

That's the last 'hard to get' thing....there's some ancillary stuff to get but it's all 'rona' type stuff....

Nothing but the fabrication now.

... To practice the two-hand uphill lean, the two-hand downhill lean, and the obligatory arms-crossed on shovel one-foot-stand with second foot free to kick dirt.

Perfect these, and you could work for the Highways Department! They will doubtless make you apprentice for such things as the "elbow out the truck window" busy look, or the "I can't find my shovel" saunter. The most difficult of all is the "five people standing around a hole looking busy" when only one of them is actually holding a shovel. That's the one I could never pass, always had a coffee in my hand, or made eye contact with passing drivers, drove the foreman nutz!
