The Handyman

11:37 am:

  1. a person able or employed to do occasional domestic repairs and minor renovations.
    synonyms:repairman, odd-job man, jack of all trades [

George woke up early this morning. At 8:30 am. That's pretty early for a guy who did not crawl into his sack until 3:30 am!

Of course, the Big Scampy Project immediately popped into George's head. George thought to himself, "How long have we been on this Scampy Project?"

"Could it be two weeks? Three weeks? Longer?" Scampy's inside has been torn up forever! Everybody is sooooo tired of that!

1:02 pm:
The Electrician
George has been doing one of his favorite handyman jobs today. Being an electrician! Much better than being a plumber who regularly gets down in to all that muck!

An electrician, in comparison, often sits on his butt snipping wires. Then joining those wires to other wires using crimp connectors. Is this work?

The electric panel in the pic below barely fit thru the rectangular hole in the bench seat because the panel's wires are too short. So, the wires to that panel were extended in order to provide some slack.

The butt joints are those yellow things.

The brown electric panel fits thru the rectangular 
hole now that its wires have been extended.

3:01 pm:
Battery Acid
Do you remember a couple days ago when we found battery acid on Señor Tránsito's rear storage floor? The acid leaked thru a defective battery box.

Several Readers warned that the floor has to be super neutralized with a baking soda solution. And then the floor has to be drenched with water to get it clean again.

We are going to attend to this job this afternoon. We also are going to replace two pairs of short cargo pants and my pajamas which all got battery acid holes!!

  1. George you're a hop skip from me!! Meeting you has been 12 yrs in the wait. Cheers! ~M

    1. M,

      Where are you?

      For that matter, who are you?



  2. here's my rant from your last blog

    When I go to Home Depot or Lowe's or Walmart for that matter! I want to see that smiling face whether she/he greets me or not does it make a difference. what makes a difference. Is I want them, to push the buttons and tell me to have a good day when I leave.
    If you're going to make me go through an automated check out counter, I want that store to give me a discount for doing so.

    The only automated check in, or check out, I want to hear the voice of the ATM machine,, then I know I'm having a good day or a bad day?

    If you go shopping in Japan.. some stores only have associates that stock the shelves everything else is automated.
    That eventually will come to the US. when it does, we have a choice of utilizing it or not.
    But take a good look around, because The future is getting closer Then you think.
    When was the last time you had a telephone operator say ..number please
    Or, this is the operator.. may I help you!

    Also the next time you go to a McDonald's drive-in.. ask the order taker what US state they live in. Some Drive in order takers are outsourced.
    And yes clean your own damn table,,,, Yo mama Didn't teach you that

    1. Yes my comment is long but not as long as you're a blog and I didn't put pictures of it
      So inlight me as to how I could've made the smaller
      If you read every other line it's really not that long

    2. Hi Ed,

      I'm pulling your chain.

      You just go ahead and make your comments any size that makes you happy.

      However, I retain my right to call your attention to that length if its a loooonnnng one!



  3. About the battery acid, the big problem/question is why isn't it inside the battery? That is a huge question.
    The acid is NEVER supposed to be out of the battery.

    1. Hi Rob,

      This battery was defective. I disposed of this battery yesterday at AutoZone.
