    Garden sprayer?

    Hey, folks,

    So, the other day, Doorlink and I came home, and found a box on the doorstep. She said "William, did you order a garden sprayer?"

    "I did no such thing!" I said. "I bet you ordered it, to give to your other boyfriend!"

    "He already has one," she said. "Besides, I would have ordered him an electric one. This is a hand pump model."

    Par for the course, I thought to myself. But it was getting dark, so I carried it into the shop, and went out to find it this morning.

    Really, it's a garden sprayer:

    But the address on the label says something about MO. What's up with that?

    Then I remembered Darren said something about some old batteries that would fit my drill? James left my old batteries out in the rain, and one died for good, and the other gives up the ghost after 20 minutes.

    And since my charger still works, life is good! Thanks, Darren!

    Now I just need to figure out what to ship back to him in that box!

    Thanks,

    Bill

    No problem! I'm glad someone could use it. The trigger was a bit touchy on the drill, I've taken it apart a couple of times to clean. I figured out that the previous owner of my shop, had wired a 110 outlet for 220, so the charger was a bit fried so I tossed it.
