Illicit Seed Deals and Auto Work

Hello, Benjamin from Brothers Campfire here!

Yesterday involved spending a lot of cash, but it was necessary. My brakes were shot so I asked my brother-in-law to come down an assist. He completed the job quickly and effectively.

My little sister Amber is mechanically inclined as well and assisted Isabel with her windshield wipers, headlights, stereo system, and a special turn signal that she can use with her right hand. (Her left one does not work very well.)

It was non stop busy. I have a forklift fork that needs cutting and a man came by with a four-inch angle grinder to take a stab at it. It was a challenge he chose to take on and he wants to finish what he started. The Dumbest Blogger, who is not so dumb, recommended we use a cutting torch. I agree, but I wont turn down free help. When he was done for the day, I sent him off with chocolate zucchini bread and a pumpkin.

Meanwhile, I worked on the beehive and purchased a hive tool, which is a mini overpriced prybar designed for hives. Here are the bees.

While I was out, I bought a LOT of on-sale flower seeds for next year. Some of my neighbors are collecting seeds for me and I get these little baggies of unmarked seeds. Fortunately, I live in Colorado or I would fear attention would be drawn that I was an illicit seed dealer.

I have a few days off. We will see what they bring!

    It’s not good to be mechanically inclined, otherwise everybody asks you for help. I have worked on and repaired 4-6 of the sushi chefs cars at Sushi den, and the legal aspect of repair for the manager and one other.

    He does good work on brakes. Did your man with the angle grinder get through? It looked like he got a lot done from the video.
    Very excited about the boys and hoping it all goes well.
