I also read that barn paint was made with sour milk; a whitewash of sorts. Nails were added to the mix and allowed to rust, giving the paint its color.

I bought one of those Boston pencil sharpeners at a yard sale a while back. It was an "automatic." Remember? you stuck the pencil in and pulled out on a gizmo in the front of the sharpener that then grabbed the pencil. you turned the handle and the gizmo would automatically feed the pencil in. It also centered the pencil, regardless of its girth, so you didn't have to dial in the size. ...Yes I actually use the thing...

AOC; all that money, and she STILL looks like a mule when she smiles...

The local market, knowing the kids were covering their books with brown bags, used bags that had the book cover template already printed on it, complete with as well as patterns and pictures...

The democrats called the Capitol protesters "insurrectionists" and Marauders..." So, Donks... what exactly do you call a group of people who actively aids an invasion of our country by MILLIONS of foreign nationals?... I'll wait...

Great stuff as always!
Can someone explain #116? Especially the medieval torture device in the lower right corner?

Thanks, DC.

Sour milk stuck better, Pf.

It's a chicken plucker, Dave - no joke. The arms are rubber.

The last time I visited Uncle Ralph at his small farm outside Traverse City, Mi., we got up early for coffee one morning and he wanted to show me something in the barn. A good-sized RED bar, natch. The sun was just coming up, and the light coming through various cracks was the color of honey, and soon the entire inside of the barn was luxuriating in a warm honey glow.
He then proceeded to show and explain this - see pic - which he had owned 'forever'.
Well dang, I can't seem to post the picture in the comments section. Is there a way?

Gorges Smythe said...

Probably not, Dave. You can in Facebook.

Dave Bagwill said...

Ah. I have no FB.
Here is a link to the picture, of a device you will recognize.

Sure enough, Dave. I cranked one for my great aunt when I was a kid.
