Noticed late yesterday that the suet feeder was empty. :run: I'll have to fill that this evening.

One of the springs on my garage door broke this morning. I had to open the garage door manually, then move my car and my wife's car outside then close the door. Thankfully it looks like Menard's has several of the spring I need in stock so I can pick one up on my way home from work and swap it out this evening. Thinking I might want to get two and swap out both and then keep the old one that didn't break as a spare...

Good idea. I think it's smart to spring for two new ones. Actually I recommend it so both sides have equal tension. The old one might be stretched, weak, or even stronger than the replacements.
I'm tired now.

I was heavy into Spirograph, mang.
Lucky boy me even got the Super.

The rings had four pin holes.... no; no, no...stick them suckers down with like 8, using the pen holes or toe-nailing them down on the edges, too.
More stability.

Getting 98% of the way done, and one of the pins comes loose...BOOM...ruined.

I have decided that cheap or ugly one pickup guitars will henceforth be called (by me, but you may also use the term, it ain't copyrighted) "one pup pounders."

I have four so far, $88 to $600

I replaced them both. As you may know, garage door springs are color coded, they sure changed the white springs from the last time I had to replace them which was about 10 years ago. Much smaller gauge and diameter. They are not as strong as the old one(s) either. After I replaced the broken spring I tested the door and it worked fine. Replaced the old good spring with a new one and the door would only open about a foot. :mad: I had to adjust the opener opening force. All is well now, for now anyway.

After I had the garage door taken care of it was time to fill the suet feeder.

I seem to recall there was some questioning about your hummingbird feeder some time back and a photo with a spoon was requested. To ward off that same doubt about my suet feeder, here it is with a spoon, well, it's not a spoon, but it's shaped like a spoon and it was more handy than going inside and into the kitchen to get an actual spoon.

That was just stupid. The marshmallows were already on a stick ready for roasting. Why not cut the branch off and leave it ready to go. Dumb assed marshmallow farmers don' know nuttin'.
Agree. You could probably sell an 8 pack with sticks for twice what a regular bag sells for.

Ha ha. Melody Maker reissues on Reverb with asking prices $500 to $1000 US.
I got me a good deal, then.

And I had to fill that suet feeder again on Monday! At the rate they're going through the suet I'm going to have to buy another box of ten.
