How to get more garage time with Jeep

When I retired, my wife and I moved out to the country and bought a house with a 4 car heated garage. We have a little land so we got some chickens.
The chickens usually provide more eggs than we can use, so we sell some. Sometimes we don't sell all the eggs and they get a couple weeks old. We only sell the freshest eggs.

When eggs are real fresh and you hard boil them they are hard to peel. The best time to hard boil eggs is when they are a couple weeks old or older (about as old as the eggs in the store are when you buy them). Then they peel easier.

When I have two hard boiled eggs for breakfast, my farts aren't too bad. When I have 3 or 4 hard boiled eggs for breakfast, ....well you can guess.

"How does this relate to working on Jeeps" you ask?

When I have 3 or more hard boiled eggs for breakfast, I can be assured that my wife will say "Why don't you go out to the garage and work on the Jeep".

She rarely asks me to do the dishes or laundry.

Hope this helps. Good Luck, L.M.

Sooooo..... do you ship your eggs? I'll need 3-4 per day for at least the immediate future.

Easiest way to get more garage time with the Jeep is to get your wife a boyfriend...

garage time

I retired 7 years ago so I thought i would have all the time do the things I wanted. (Wrong) Seems like everyone new I retired and wants a piece of my time. I proved them all wrong by saying NO to them and went hunting and fishing. If I need time to work on the jeep I have to do it between my hunting and fishing. Good thing we have had a lot of rain lately .The rivers are too high to fish and I was able to get my jeep fixed before my next hunting season. (Squeaky season ) Which usually starts the end of Feb. till end of June. (Small squirrels are so fun to shoot.)

We don't have squirrels here (too few trees), BUT, we have prairie dogs. The "progressives" think they are cute little critters and want them protected. I think they are plague infested varmints that dig holes to break horses legs.

When some "progressives" tried to stop a developer from building, the judge allowed the tree-huggers to move the prairie dogs to another location. I told them they could move them to some acreage I own further out in the county. They were ready to do it until they found out I sponsor a prairie dog shoot in the spring.

Good Luck, L.M.

We have that problem with deer. Those damn things cause tons of car accidents every year. They steer clear of rural areas, and come right to the suburbs. Whenever a gun goes off where I live, it's on the three local channels and you see police cars immediately. I think a neighbor got questioned for "firing his machine gun" when he lit off a pack of Black Cats. As Ted Nugent said, "suck on my machine gun".

When I first moved out to the country several years ago, the deer would come up on my patio and eat my wife's flowers. I finally built a 7' fence all around my back yard and garden.
Now this year the buggers ate the pumpkins off my front porch.

Fortunately it's easy to get the tax stamp for a suppressor where I live. It's been cold enough to hang something in my barn. Not that I would do such a thing, but it's tempting.

Good Luck, L.M.

garage time

Lucy Mac I am surprised that the tree huger here haven't stopped the Squeaky hunting in Calif. I shoot over 20,000 rounds a year (22 caliber) and I don't miss a lot. There are millions of them on the ranches I shoot at. Close to home we have problems with elk. We have a herd of around 200 that passes behind the house. Really neat to sit and watch them. last pic is a small bachelor herd less than 400 yards form the house.

Isn't that what PETA stands for?

Actually, I kind of agree with them (up to a point). If you are going to kill an animal you must do so as ethically as possible and plan on eating it.
Varmints are another story. You should kill them quickly and cleanly but you don't have to eat them.

I know that some ranchers around here poison gophers. I wouldn't, it's neither quick or clean.

Good Luck, L.M.

I spend a lot of my time when not Jeeping volunteering at a nearby National Park and there are a lot of Gunnison's Prairie dogs. We get a lot of visitors who want to hike with their dogs, and we don't allow that. Reason: the little critters carry plague and hanta. Some people say they aren't scared of this, until we explain that they won't see any pds because the entire colony died this past year from plague. No way I would want to take that back home with me on my dog's fleas.

Very nice group of elk by the way mule rider.
