Local hardware store now has 'contactless pickup lockers'. Ordered
some grass seed, got a text ' its in a locker' wth does that
mean?!?!. so i had to look it up.  What is this world coming to?

Sure, for us that dont like people i guess its nice.. but still.

Local Walmart has one too.  A HUGE tower thing in the front of the
store.

 


That is so 2021. They need to get with the times.

Any new contactless thing. I thought that Russia ended the pandemic.

Nah, elections are coming. Time to bring it back.  Facui is already talking about new lock downs.  Its harder to cheat if everyone goes in to vote.. ( not impossible just harder )

Damned birds.   Put out a lot of 'lawn patch' today.   Birds decided its meal time.   I even put out bread to attract them away from the patches. 

 

And is it just me, or did grass seed explode in price this spring?

Oh, and the Walmart lockers/tower machine pre-dated the flu-virus by several years.

Absolutely. I bought a big sack of it and it cost more than a tank of gas.

Landscapers often put straw on top of new seed to keep the birds from eating it. Homeowners usually don't but at these prices maybe it's going to start making sense.

Most of my front lawn is still missing after the work I did last summer pulling out rocks and stumps so I could get the lawnmower around without destroying it. I threw out some seed a few weeks ago but there have been no results.
It might not be the greatest time to do so. Now I've got even more of a mess because I had my entire driveway replaced. It's about 250 feet (76 meters) long so it cost a small fortune, even more because a culvert underneath it had rotted out and needed to be replaced as well.

But I guess it's better than all of the giant potholes, including the one that was basically ready to swallow a car into the creek. Oy.

ya, i thought about straw too, but the local farm store was out.  This week i need to roll the yard too, if it stops raining long enough.  Several years of rabbits has taken its toll and its like a minefield.   Going to try to do it by hand, as i dont have a tractor ( yard here is too small for that, we just use a self propelled push mower. tho a few people do, and all they do is spend their time turning... ). With luck i dont pull my elbow apart.

 

And good ( well not good, you know what i mean :) ) that its not my imagination or was losing my memory on prices.

Well, that was fun. Went out to get my GSD from the back yard, and shes out there playing with a husky.. wth.  It jumped a 6' privacy fence. Went to find the owner, that lives behind me. They came to find me. We went different directions and didnt see each other, sort of comical.

Friendly dog, and my GSD likes to play so it worked out ok. i'm just thankful my other dog was not out there instead as she would have killed it.  She attacks other dogs, even ours, if she gets near them.

I called my dog inside so i could figure out what was going on, and the silly thing tried to follow her in.

So light died in the kitchen, under the cabinet. Bought a new one " direct wire under cabinet " or some such nonsense, implying that its not using a wall plug, but actually wired..   Open it up so i can drill a hole ( its got side knock outs, i want it where it mounts on the wall ), there is no place to attach the incoming power. its all some funky connectors inside it.    They expect you to buy a controller that feeds it power instead .. wtf.  

Oddly it even had 2 twist connectors in the pack. but nothing that goes from the magic socket to splice.. 

 

Sure i can cut and splice as i'm not an imbecile, but that isn't the point. 

 

( or should this have been under rant :)  )

Yeah ... most lights of that type are low voltage now. The kit I installed in my kitchen was basically just a bunch of LED tape strips with some easy-bake connectors on them. I cut up the cables and soldered them to the wire I pre-ran when I installed the cabinets, and to a 12 volt bus I had already brought into the next room. It looks fantastic, but who knows how long the cheap chinese strip lights will last.

It had a AC to DC converter inside, or it would have gone back to the store.  Still, shouldn't have to cut up the cables and drill holes if its sold as 'direct wire'..
