Belladonna took me out to breakfast this morning. I was a good boy. I ordered oatmeal with cran-raisins.
I repaired a couple of cheap "promo" shovels that I bought this spring. The manufacture used a couple of brads instead of a single, through rivet to attach the head to the handle. The taper of the head flexed and spit out the brads.
I drilled a through hole and used an annealed, 16d nail as a rivet. I did not smash the free end but used a hammer and anvil to bend the free end over. It HAS to be better than the two brads.
Worn out by all the heavy work, I fit nap into my schedule.
Tonight I get to watch a high school basketball game.
