You know how it is, you have splurged and placed an order from a vendor – this time Grizzly. You check the delivery schedule to make sure you or someone will be there to recieve the delivery, then the big day arrives.
The delivery guy shows up at your driveway with your box of goodies, but you notice a small “ding” in the box so to be sure the contents are OK you decide to open the box while the delivery guy is still there. Yeah he is not real happy about it but you go ahead, cut the straps and cut the sealing tape. Your heart is racing as you throw open the box lids and delve into it to make sure your precious toy(s) are OK.

Then…................................woosh, you suddenly feel the breeze.

Now you have another little job to attend to: Peanuts anyone?

OK A1Jim, I’ll type this slow as I know you don’t read too fast!

Grizzly ships all their orders (except large standing tools) in boxes loaded with styrofoam peanuts and they usually end up everywhere, so you have a cleanup job on your hands.
It’s a real pain!

Dammit! I keep forgetting what this one was about and every time it comes to the top of the pulse page I click on it again. I have to quit doing that.

Ooooh My Eyeballs! The glare! I can’t seeeeee . . .

I’m blind!

Peanuts? I like peanuts . . . Aren’t you suppose to crack the peanuts?

Me thinks we needs to spend more time in the wood workshop and less time on the PC.
