I built a stereo rack on Sunday. Been listening to the records of my youth. Tonight side B of New Order "Low Life." #nostalgia
Checking out a dresser at the @Habitat_org ReStore and found a bonus in one of the drawers. 😂
Found a sweet little Peavey Audition Chorus amp at Goodwill for $12.99 today. Works great!
Cleaning some windows on the house today. Talk about grime, what a difference! 2nd pic with clean right window. Almost looked like it had a screen on it before but it was massive pollen and dust residue. Yuck.
My first Ikea experience was pretty good. We got a nice little pair of stackable twin beds. Some of the fasteners on this were super cool, a kind I'd never seen before.
I wanted to share this link with y'all: https://axesslab.com/accessible-comics/
It's about @LuBellWoo's awesome comic, "100 Demon Dialogues", and how she and her self-publishing team worked to make the e-book version more accessible for people with visual impairments.
They added alt-text to each comic, and show examples of how they look to screen readers; the difference is striking.
Thought I'd share for those who are accessibility minded, and to remind myself to make the effort. It's worth it!
Hey @NYbill are you watching the PGA championship? That dude was switching bunkers like a weekend hacker. Dang...
Ok, so it's not much, but it's the first fully forged #knife I've made. Made from an old mower blade, with the tang end folded and forge welded, then drawn out slightly.
Took a punt & quenched in water & tempered to straw by heating the back of the blade & waiting for the colours to run. Sharpened to 8000 grit.
Tang was heated and pushed into the handle, burning it's own hole, then epoxied for final fitting.
We're cleaning our old house today getting it ready for a tenant, and I found a nommy potato chip wedged between the fridge and the cabinet. Probably only a couple of months old.
This was the first school day in about 14 yrs when we didn't have to drive kid(s) to/from school. Our son is driving himself and his sister this year. Just #WOW THIS IS AMAZING.

(Reason #44 I stay here: my previous requests like this have been generally well-received, proving that most people are awesome.)
Major homeowner triumph tonight: I figured out how to replace the cords in the vintage blinds that came with the house. Cords kept breaking so I ordered 300 ft. of replacement cord and did the first replacements tonight. Fresh life in the old blinds! Wife was REALLY impressed. Usually she's kind of indulgently impressed LOL.
One of the great things about our new house is having a place to do jigsaw puzzles without having to clear them away to have a place to eat.
