    This forum needs a new thread

    Because the other threads are getting old.

    Spent Saturday cleaning dirt and spiders off the kayaks we kept under the deck. Went kayaking for first time in 4 years on Sunday. It was fun.

    First time in a small boat for our 3-year-old, unfortunately by the time we got in the water it was just about fussy nap time. But he still had some fun before we called it quits.

    Probably about 4-6 hours of prep work for 1 hour of kayaking. But we're already going out again next weekend.

    My work gloves have a hole in them. Can you guys make some recommendations to replace a pair of Mechanix Wear Impacts?
    I lost my phone number. Can I have yours?

    I always buy the cheapest work gloves that Ace Hardware has. And then after about 6 months they have holes in them and need to be replaced. So I go back to Ace Hardware and buy the cheapest ones there. You would think at some point I would use my brain and buy nicer gloves....but I don't. It is a mystery indeed.

    Gloves?

    I used to buy GoJo for when I was doing work that gets hands greasy. Then I bought a box of disposable heavy duty rubber (neoprene?) gloves at Harbor Freight Tools. Life changing. No more GoJo.

    Since I retired the pile of work gloves that my employer had "given me" is dwindling.

    I've tried going that route but after about fifteen minutes in those gloves, my hands are soaking wet. I still use the gloves when I'm mincing fresh jalapenos for my salsa.

It didn’t hit me right away. I immediately washed my hands twice after handling the peppers. I then proceeded to stir them around a bit with a spoon to make sure they changed color like one recipe said they would. It was while I used a pair of tongs to transfer the jalapeños from the pot to a jar that I felt the first hints of warmth building in my hands. I completed the transfer, then washed my hands a couple more times for good measure. This only seemed to make it worse.

    I really thought this story was going to end with you on the water, in the middle of the lake, when you discovered a giant-assed spider in the kayak that you missed (like Huntsman Spider sized).

    Thanks for nothing.

    For light duty I'm finding Finish Line Mechanic's Gloves durable, cleanable, and a darn good deal at $5.
