Got caught red handed
« on: December 16, 2012, 06:13:53 PM »
The wife caught me today shaking some wrapped boxes on the closet shelf. I have been hinting around about needing this and that for beekeeping. How's a fellow to know if I need to buy them myself. Sure didn't sound like a microscope in there. How heavy is one of those things anyway?
She's not giving up any information now, muttered something about my goose being cooked?  :idunno:

Just sit down to the computer tonight  and tell her that you are going to order one on line now. If she has one for you she will let you know. If not she wont say anything.

Place I used to work had a few Leica stereo microscopes.  Boy were those some sweet pieces of equipment!  They were fabulous for removing slivers from your fingers so I would guess they would be great for artificial insemination.  They weren’t too bad for finding cold solder joints either  ;)

You don't know my wife do ya ? She wouldn't say a word to spoil it. I'd have to sell the one I had bought too. Otherwise I'd have to hear it over and over on how I ruined Christmas

You have to find them before they get wrapped.  I'm getting 2 staplers, a router and router table.  Oh 2 boxes of staples, 5000 each for the staplers.  Good luck on finding out.   HO  HO  HO

If she hadn't walked in on me, I'd already know what was in those packages. They disappeared from the closet overnight. Guess I'll have to wait for Christmas morning now!
