DUCT TAPE, WD-40 AND THE MEANING OF LIFE
THE OL'BUZZARD'S LIFE SURVIVAL KIT FOR SONS AND GRANDSONS
If I had a young son or grandson coming of age I would give him the gift of an Ol’Buzzard’s Life Survival Kit consisting of a Leatherman and a roll of Duct Tape; and I would tell him that if he is man enough and will stand on his own two-feet, the Kit will take care of 98% of his problems – the other 2% being women that he will never be able to comprehend.
I had Direct TV installed about a year ago and I told the installer that I wanted the antenna to be convenient enough that I could clear it of the wet sticky snows we sometimes get at the beginning and at the end of the winter season. He told me to spray the antenna with WD-40 and the antenna would stay clear. It worked.
Today we had about five inches of that wet sticky snow with temperatures above freezing. With this kind of snow my snow blower usually clogs up in the chute and I end up shoveling my driveway; but for some reason I thought of the advice of the Direct TV installer. I went out and sprayed the snow blower chute liberally with WD-40 and blew the snow away with no problem – the chute never clogged.
I think I would add WD-40 to the Ol’Buzzard’s Life Survival Kit.
