    Pap lived to be 99. His advice was “don’t get old.”

    Surprised that no one has said it but Grandpaw was a carpenter (now days would be called a contractor.

    He (Mr. Tom) always said "never cut toward yourself". And of course, the old woodworkers question: "Which is more dangerous, a sharp tool or a dull tool?" (Idiots such as you and I try to force a dull tool which slips and is still plenty sharp enough to cut us, as we cut towards our own flesh.)

    Grandmaw (Aint Sis) always said "dont ever eat pork after 2:00 in the afternoon." (Eat your heavy meals early in the day in order to get maximum digestion time before bed).

    My ultra-capable late Dad told me never cut anything in the direction of your body.
    I remember so much stuff taught me.
    Wish he was here to thank, just one more time.

    Don't reheat yesterdays coffee in the microwave, it'll taste like pencil shavings.

    Well, no matter how careful you were in school emptying the sharpener, some how you always got the taste in your mouth.

    Yeah, I miss my dad too. Him and I are both DIY project workshop types, and he taught me a lot about tools from a very young age... his tools, I might add.

    I think he was more concerned about the safety of his tools... my safety only come second (cuz Mom would give him an ear-full if I ever got hurt from using his stuff). Haha



    RIP Dad, just kidding! :)

    Tip from my late grandfather (an ex WWII vet): If you know the enemy is coming toward you in a certain direction, dig your fox hole facing the opposite direction. Once they step over you, you can raise up and shoot them in the back and are less likely to receive return fire.

    OK, here's a tip:


    Never use a match to check how much gasoline is left, inside a dark underground tank.

    (Sadly a third-world country true story...)

    Never tell a police officer "It ain't mine", and then look at the passenger.

    You'll both get arrested.

    A dear friend of mine says:
    "Remember, only break one law at a time"
    It means that if you are, uh, havin' a smoke, don't speed, and make sure your lights are all good.

    Tip:

    Don't mouse-click on the nice shiny big red buttons adjacent to the main TDPRI Forum Categories.

    They're only there to mess with your OCD! :mad:


    Click... click... click... click... click... click... click... click... Arrrrgh!!

    BRASS. Breathe, Relax, Aim, Stop, Squeeze. The final steps before pulling the trigger on an M16 assault rifle, aimed at a target 200 to 500 meters away. No scope.

    For me you left off: Watch dust come up in front of target at 500 meters.
