(This nutcracker is about $50 I will stick to the rock and hammer)
Last year Don & Evelyn gave us a bushel of walnuts. We finally got around to cracking them. A good walnut cracker is very expensive. I am trying putting some in hot water. Actually I put them in a 4 qt pot and brought the water to a boil then let them set.
Then after pouring the water off found a good rock and used the hammer to crack them. Do you know a better way? We still have a bunch to go. This way (boiling them and getting the nut warm, no jokes now) we did get some much bigger pieces as we picked them. The theory was that the nut would be more flexible warm and would not break as easily. Seemed to work.
I did sell the bike and boat (sorry Mel). Now with my drawing stuff out of the basement I have room for the spare tire in the basement. One thing I thought was funny, when I first started driving a large RV, I did not see a spare tire. I asked the salesman, ‘where is the spare tire ?’ His answer, “What would you do with it if you had one?” It took a little while to understand what he meant. A spare on the wheel for these things weighs over a hundred pounds. He is right, I could not handle it. So we have road service. On real long trips, I will keep an unmounted spare (85lbs.) in case of a blow out.

I got to thinking back about that 1953 MG, so it got me to looking and I have spent entirely too much time looking and drooling all over the net and all over the country. That is a great car. I wonder what they sell for over in England. I should have check their used cars. I think I will.
(I sure would look good in this)
Jack Jr. is down visiting with us. we are really enjoying this. He is going to house sit for us while we are gone on OUR CRUISE (starting Sept 18th out of Tampa).
Thanks for reading this stuff
The reason Politicians try so hard to get re-elected is that they would 'hate' to have to make a living under the laws they've passed.
