I was taking photos last night, for a project, of an antique miter saw I have. I realized that this saw is 100 years old most likely. My great-grandfather used it. My grandfather likely used it. My father has used it. My brothers and I have used it. I’d better get it cleaned up better because I don’t see why my kids wouldn’t be able to use it. There’s a little rust on it but I should be able to take a wire brush to it and clean it up better. Get the blade sharpened and oil it.
I love the idea that four generations of my family have used it to make things.
Hope you like it. Let me know.
I was just thinking that I should start posting and thinking about nerdy art more. I have the opportunity, and the ability to take Nerdy Art Photos. I’ll eventually give it it’s own section but for now check out the new photos posted last night.
If you have any suggestions for Nerdy Art Photos please let me know.
I was asked to be in a flickr group and it sounded fun. Here is my first submission.
This is a rare political cartoon from me. I generally steer away from politics because in general I’m impartial. A fence sitter maybe. Both sides act like little kids sometimes. It’s sad even that we can say both side. We have such a limited viewpoint in government.
Anyhow. Someone posted a like to new Senator Whathisname talking about how child labor laws are unconstitutional. He didn’t say we should repeal them he was trying to use it as an example of how good intentions might infringe on what may be constitutionally legal.
His point got lost. It came off like this.
