    Your tool drawer looks just like mine. Wish I could find that duct tape.

      I think just about everybody has a drawer like that, Sharon. I’ve tried to empty the junk out of mine, but it seems to attract new junk. It’s a gravity thing.

        Bob,
        ALL my drawers are like that! In order to keep my sanity, I treat my searches like a treasure hunt. The rule of thumb however is that you will NEVER find what you’re looking for on the first try, but you’ll always find something you were looking for a month ago (or decades as you described) and for which you now have no earthly need. However, as San said, for God’s sake DON’T throw the item away. You’ll need it tomorrow! Good cartoon, R.L.12

    Way back when I bought our first house, I got so frustrated with losing 3 pronged adapters, that I went out and bought ten of them. I still have at least one left, there no longer seems to be more than on in one place at one time. Tool drawer? nope, tool garage.

    Here’s a warning about those things in the ‘tool drawer’: Do Not Throw Any of the Items in the Drawer Away!! IF you discard ANY item, you will immediately find a need for said discarded item the following day (eg:duct tape, three-prong thingies et al). Not sure which ‘law’ that is, but it’s a real thing.

    Speaking of tools, the Rangers just lost their first place title for the first time in the 2012 season when the beautiful A’s sent them packing this evening. If the A’s beat ’em tomorrow they win the division. Go A’s!!

    What a gorgeous night of baseball. I also got to watch (flipping back and forth) the Giants knock the evil Dodgers out of their wildcard slot at Chavez Ravine, and so now the boyz in blue must wait until 2013 for any further glory. Boo hoo for them (-:

  5. Ken Jones says:

    Mike looks like the Dodgers will have to await 2013 to become a contender again against the giants. Spring 2013 inspires hope in us Dodger fans. No crying on my behalf.

    • Michael Anderson says:

      Ken, I noticed that you used a lower-case ‘g’ above. Typical Dodger passive-aggressive behavior (-;

      Just a bit of advice, for the 2013 season you might have your Dodger players undergo some ego-deflation therapy–a lot of your guys have great stats but are just a little too full of themselves.

      Remember, it’s all about the small ball…get on base any way you can, move that player to second any way you can, bunt-steal-create pressure. Just watch Boche during the playoffs, he’ll show you how it’s done (-:

      • Ken Jones says:

        Never been able to find that capital g Mike. Typically referred to them as the gants. But you are right about the Dodgers, need to be a team not a bunch of over paid egotists. That is at least my hope for 2013. Great stats don’t always translate into wins either. The only proven stat is to score more runs per game then the opposing team.

      Atlanta loses to St. Louis 6 – 3 in Atlanta. Game includes a 20-minute delay in the late innings after a controversial infield fly-rule call. Fans threw trash on the field to show they were high-class.

      Texas just lost to Baltimore 5-1 in Arlington. No trash on the field, but many fans left early to beat the traffic. Incredible dedication.

      The Birds pecked out some eyes today and tonight. So far the playoffs are going perfectly.

    What’s the deal, Lew Wolff! Take the tarps off!! Removethetarps.com

    What a goof. 35K vs. 55K? Seriously Lew, more intimate ya say? That’s a lotta brats and beer. Are you sure this isn’t more about moving the team?

    Ryan, what the heck is going on here?!?

    • Michael Anderson says:

      Yeah, it’s pretty clear “what’s going on here.” http://www.sfgate.com/athletics/article/A-s-refuse-to-remove-tarp-3923932.php

      Bruce Jenkins, longtime Comical columnist wrote today: “Lew Wolff and John Fisher, get the hell out of here, you’re a disgrace to the Bay Area!”

      Wow. I guess that pretty much sums it up.
      Well, maybe not. Here’s another comment from the story:

      “Lew Wolf is straight out of the movie Major League- He is a complete villian. All he wants to do is move the team so he can flip the team at a profit. I have vowed not to spend a cent on this team while it is owned by that poor excuse for a human being. Wolf is complete scum.”

      Yeeeesh…
