It's Hump Day:You Know The Drill

Someone I Could Look Up To

Poor Poor Pitiful Me

I'm left to cook on my Weber while some enjoy the finer things of outdoor living.

Screwed Again

If there is going to be a consumer to get screwed it will be me. That is one reason I am so darn gun shy when it comes to electronics. At any rate, just as in the commercials, I am on the verge of developing carpal tunnel when I use this Roundup spray. Constantly pumping the trigger and it's stream is like that of a 75 year old man. So I put down more bucks to buy this version of Roundup in the pump up sprayer. Now I admit I'm not usually optimistic but I had high hopes. I did till the FIRST time I used it. After pumping and pressurizing the tank, I would pick it up by the handle I would hear all the air leaking out. Needless to say it just drips out. Now if I carry it around like a baby it works as it should. I think I was attracted to the new version by the logo "Pump 'n Go". Sounds a lot like me.
