this week has been tough to get a post out.... ive have some of the higher ups out in the yard helping me with a major project. we are replacing all the hydraulic ram packing on an older one of these. fairly painful project. new back flow valves, hoses, nipples, fittings, bolts, nuts and the like... time consuming and everything has to be done right the first time... had to custum weld some of the rams up with "bumpers" because the wear pins are getting sloppy as well.
what does all this mean. well, the "higher upper helpers" are getting a taste of what i do all day when im not fucking off on the company dime... like this.(which i stole from shife, or beast or someone elses site.) but its been real nice to have some decent thinkers out in the yard, under a piece of equipment with me...
yeah all that story just to say why there hasnt been shit for profundity here lately... lookie there, i used the words shit and profundity in the same sentence. my english teachers would be proud...
other than that not much else is new. cheese and i went on a plant liberation mission the other day! how fun is that? sneaking up on to abandoned private property with beautiful flowers and digging them up for our own house!!! a third of the back of my truck was full.
we have a gray water system at our house that never really watered anything, so cheese started a large flower bed to help with all the water. we grabbed a bunch of cali-lillys, (how the fuck do you spell that?) they seem like they will soak up a bunch of that water, narsisis and some other bulbing varieties i cant spell or remember the names of.
i love that shit. i used to be quite the thief in my younger days, so when i get a chance to do a little liberating its a memorable rush. we have so many properties here in the sur that are owned by people who never stay there. their gardens are overgrown and mistreated. if they survive at all. so a "thinning" of their uncared for plants doesnt seem like a harmful thing?!? no/yes?
anyway, that was my lunch break and instead of eating i had a red bull.
and spell check still doesnt seem to be working for me...

I'm all for liberating untended plants and other living things, like pets for example. Both need appreciation, plants and pets. The "owners" won't miss a thing, screw 'em.

Spell check died. Fuck it.
Hope things get a little easier at work. Everyone needs their slacker time.

Plants for a five finger discount? I've done that before too. It is very fun to drive around old homesteads looking at their plants. And think of all the money you saved! Good luck with the Fat Heads at work. And Friday is coming up so it will be time to party, get naked and throw potatoe salad, because we all know that shit is not fit to eat!

KAY! WTF? is with blogger, remember the days before their new blogger? when spell check would also correct capitals? when it would ask you if you wanted it to correct all of the same mistakes... now with no spell check i look like even more of an illetirate asshole... see what im saying?
