Now that's an idea. Get rid of sawdust, stick it to a thief. Double duty.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Hahaha. It's funny because it's true.
So many people steal packages these days.

Porch pirates!
Story- New York City had a sanitation workers strike a number of years ago. One enterprising individual solved his garbage problem. He put his garbage in a cardboard box, wrapped it in brown paper, taped the paper and tied a string around the box. He left it on the front seat of his car with the windows rolled down. Bingo! Garbage gone!

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

There are funny YouTube videos about this. One guy made a very involved machine in a box that, when opened, it extends above the box and spins glitter in all directions. He added a tracking device, so he could trace it and retrieve it to foil the next victim/thief.

Maybe not the best mechanism for sawdust, but a funny video. I think you have a very good idea, Barb. The really fine sanding sawdust would make them never come back.

What the hell is happening in the First World? I thought this type of problem was limited to us in the Third World?
I keep a couple of defunct dvd players and the like, on the basis that sooner or later we are going to be burgled, and I would like the thief or the fence to be beaten up for passing on dud merchandise. I am toying with the idea of removing the motherboards and filling with concrete, but installing a chip that shows a rude message on the display, on switching on.

Brilliant. But wouldn't work for me. Anymore even the ... don't stop by. But that might be my fault. Last time they stopped by I had time to spare, so pulled out a chair from the house, and sat on the porch while they carried on - standing of course. They left after about 45 minutes, and haven't seen any of them since.
