    I have one of each. The blue one works better. Better design and fewer moving parts.
    I do need to replace one because it is worn out and doesn't work very well.

    I have 3 of those.

    Do not let horse run in paddock with one of these ....
    Wearing a halter.

    Want to guess why ?

    Not a good day, on Sunday , returning from Church.

    Darndest thing, I was out in the desert and found 3 huge piles of rocks. Then I walked another 5 miles and realized they were gigantic piles of rock.

    When I was there we could go into the “Great Pyramid” aka “Pyramid of Khufu”. It wasn’t very comfortable, no ventilation, had to climb a ladder leaning at about 45 degrees in a shaft about 5ft high. This meant 100yrds walking with your hands and feet. The humidity was off the charts from people breathing and sweat, it didn’t smell to nice either. The actual temp inside was about 100 degrees. The lighting was industrial extension cords with construction type floor stand lights which gave me a warm fuzzy feeling considering the humidity was so high moisture was beaded on the walls and dripped off the ceiling stones just above your head.

    The king’s sarcophagus was never used (that room was about 20ft high and was in the very center of the pyramid). If I’m going to endure the arduous trek up inside there at least tell me some dead guy was once there.

    The “Valley of the Kings” is a really cool place. That entire roll of film was misplaced by a photomart in VA, still most annoyed about that.

    What the photos don’t show is the actual size of the stones used. Way over to the left of the lion head thing is a guy beside some metal poles… that sort of gives an idea about the cut stones under the lion.

    We had a bucket and a handle that would hurt you if it slipped out of your hand especially if it had water in it. I hauled many to the house and unless I wanted swith sripes, it best be full,.

    I was sorting photos tonight and realized... I could really go for a piece of pecan pie and a glass of tea.

    We did everything from picking them up off the ground and working them until they were clean and ready to go into pie.
    Lot of work!
    Ever had 'em fried?

    We always called them fried but I guess they are actually 'wet' roasted.

    FRIED PECANS

    Step 1. Tie up and gag any health-nut in the house.
    This is a high-fat, high salt, high-calorie energy source for people that go out and burn 3000 calories doing a day's work in the winter time.

    Put 2 paper towels in a big plate.
    3/4" of shortening or oil in the bottom of a skillet/frying pan. Heat it until it starts chirping but not smoking.
    Dump 2 cups of cleaned pecans in the hot grease and stir and fold continuously.
    Watch closely for them to change to a slightly darker color. Note: These will continue to cook after they are dumped out of the skillet.
    Scoop them out with a slotted spoon onto the bottom paper towel in the plate and use the other paper towel to blot the top of them.
    Salt them while they are still glossy with a generous amount of salt.
    Let them cool before eating.

    If the oil you left on the fire hasn't burst into flames yet, recharge it with another 2 cups of pecans and repeat until you have snacks for all 5 teenage boys.

    My new job this week requires me to drive down roads like this, only inches of clearance on both sides, delivering house building supplies. Sorry for blurry pic.

    No, we had 2 of these:
    [​IMG]

    Doing a hundred pounds of pecans was a lot of arm-work, even for two kids.
    I made it to age 12 before I engineered a washing-machine solenoid to take their place.
    A spring pulled it back out for reload.
    Push button and...CRACK! Repeat.
