    A nice stoner game plan.

    Late September 2009, at the hospital, 2 ER Doctors took me in a private room and told me my mother will die in a matter of a few weeks at most.

    Today we celebrate her 87th birthday.

    Happy Birthday Mom.

    Well done Bond's mum. Isn't it great to prove the doctors wrong? Happy birthday.

    It's on the way!

    I sent away for something; something that, as a guy, I should have had a long time ago. Can't believe I never got it before.

    It should be here sometime tomorrow.

    something every guy should have...

    in time for Halloween...





    I hope the retailer was discreet and didn't put "Sexy Rancor Keeper Costume"
    on the mailing label.

    Here it is, I've been playing with it non stop:

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00837ZGRY/

    Long have I longed for a laser infrared thermometer. It's got everything - a laser that looks like a gun, you point at stuff and pull the trigger. But instead of dead bodies and long prison sentences you get the temperature of what you just shot. Good clean fun. I actually will use it, I need to temp propane tanks so I have an excuse to be a kid.

    Need to know how hot that pan is? Laser thermometer. Looking for heat loss around your doors and windows? Laser thermometer. Is that meat on the grill done? Use a probe thermometer, these are useless for that. Oncoming wildfire? Run like hell. Want to drive cats and dogs batshit? Laser thermometer.

    We're all temperature knowledge deprived, so here are some readings I took for us all:

    Top of inside wall of house - 79deg.
    Bottom of inside wall of house - 72deg.
    Neighbor's dog - 84deg. - The little guy was unimpressed by laser dot and refused to give chase. Have yet to locate suitable cat for further tests.
    The Sun - 68deg.
    Toe - 89deg.
    Grill of small elec. heater on low - 224deg.
    Hood of my truck after running for a while - 88deg.
    Computer monitor screen - 91deg.
    My junk - 93deg.
    Rock in yard - 63deg.

    Our lives are made better with this knowledge.

    Temp on!
