O.K. My oldest son and his girlfriend asked if I would babysit for the afternoon, I am now a official grandpa….I think…
This is a golden-doodle puppy they just picked up last week…Underfoot at all times it dawned on me that the pull out catch is perfect for containing rambunctious puppies, and I can still work. WilliamMarch 26, 2014 at 12:23 pm #56746tmac1956Participant

You might as well give up that bench when the pup is in town. My cats do the same thing.

NO, not at all, I would pay those in a second…..it was the projected cost of foodMarch 26, 2014 at 2:13 pm #56751
Fair point, I would eat a LOT more than the dog and I probably smell worseMarch 26, 2014 at 2:49 pm #56752
and I probably smell worse

Well in all fairness, Paul does have a nice head to pat and he wouldn’t shed as much hair as the retriever 😆
Sorry Paul, you would be well within your rights as admin to delete these posts and ban William for a week for being naughty, not me thoughMarch 26, 2014 at 9:24 pm #56754Bob TascioneModerator

I couldn’t possibly ban anyone for speaking the truth now could I Chris?
I only delete duplicate posts or anything which is unfriendly but as of yet the later has never happened on this forum. I don’t think I will ever be a proper horologist as most of the old horologist guys in this country don’t seem to have a sense of humour, I have only just realised it is where I have been going wrong. If I am ever going to be as good as Bob (not implying he does not have a sense of humour, he is a very funny guy )and live this side of the pond I will have to buy a tweed suit, wear a monocle and loose my sense of humour.

This pup wore me out!!!!! It will take 3 days to recuperate.. also found a nice little present she left for me 🙄 I wonder what kind of cleaning solution I should use???? I will probably just carefully cover it with a paper towel until my wife finds it….

I have a bed set up between the lathes and the bushing machine, right in front of the computer so I can fall asleep watching the clock and watch videos
On a more serious note, finding puppy hair on the bench-top (maybe it is my hair), that wont cut it…. the thought is, does anyone wear a schmock while working on clocks or watches to help keep the hair and fuzzies from getting all over? I had a ships clock come in because it had stopped, I found a eyelash in the escapement area. of coarse unless I put a plastic bag over my head I suppose a schmock wont help much.

I wear this –March 28, 2014 at 2:54 pm #56758
Paul, that is fantastic, great idea, where did you get it? I think it would save alot of time in the end. WilliamMarch 28, 2014 at 2:56 pm #56759
I borrowed it from my mother-in-law, she used to wear it when I visited until she got used to me 😯
