"Yuk," says my wife, "you smell like grease."
"Well, my bike is scattered all over the garage and I think some of it got on me."
Have you ever found yourself in the middle of a job - one you're not very qualified to do - and discovered you don't have all the tools you need? That's where I am now. I need to go beg, borrow, and buy tools to get the job done.
They never go smoothly, these projects I get into at my house. I should pay somebody, but I'm too cheap. And I like that sense of accomplishment I get when I don't pay an expert. That is, if I get the thing I'm fixin' back together and it works. Correctly.
So I'm off to Chip's house to borrow a bolt cutter to cut my old bike chain off. Then I need to pick up one of these tools so I can install the master link and new chain on my motorcycle.
