The fish man used to drive his truck up our road twice a week when I was a kid. The fish was packed in ice, and of course there was a little melting which dripped out the back corner of the truck. The neighborhood cats would follow the truck from house to house and sit under the corner to catch the drips.
I finally dared to remove the Reemay from my squash and cucumbers and pumpkins today. Even a couple weeks ago, the cucumber beetles were on them in minutes if I uncovered any. I guess I out-waited them -- I haven't seen any today. There are about five days of hot full sun predicted, so while Fred is getting in the hay I will be watching the pumpkins grow.
Just adjusted the shift linkage on my son's car; that's about the extent of my mechanical talents. It wasn't releasing the ignition key when he shifted into park -- only needed a few more millimeters of travel to trip the switch. If it was an American car instead of Japanese, it would have needed a tenth of an inch rather than a few millimeters, which would have been easier for me and my old-school math.
A lot of gunk and crumbs and pretzels had somehow gotten under the console, so we vacuumed it out. Must have been a coin there too, because something heavy clanked up through the vacuum hose. I told him it was some part of the car, hopefully not an important one.
