The reason I get two of something is usually because I "Lose" the one I have then I buy a replacement. Only to find my original later.

In this case I probity stole one from the house never to return it. Of course there are no batteries in there those 19 volt packs are to big. I bought this box set up in 72 been using it daily since then. I know there is stuff in there that has not seen daylight in years.

After yesterday I'm not sure if senility is setting in or I should be celebrating. Been looking for my jumper cable with Anderson plugs and my yellow tool bag for a month. Yesterday the Explorer did the beloved bot enough battery to start routine thanks to all the computer crap draw on it when I was headed out.

At least I wasn't time committed so I took the time to look in the big plastic box I threw in the back to keep things neater. Regularly used connector box removed, roll of duct tape, roll of mechanic wire, kneeling pillow, extension cord out I found not only the yellow bay, which contained a lot more than I remembered throwing in it, I found the black bag I hadn't even missed yet. On the bottom was the Anderson Plug cable.

Pulled that sucker out, undid the velcro straps, and backed the garden tractor/buttbuggy next to the Explorer to recharge the Explorer. It worked well and I repacked the big plastic box. Started the Explorer and let it idle for a few minutes while I put the ButtBuggy away.

I wonder if people who are permatied to them smart phones use them to keep an inventory of their toys er I mean tools. I'd just mislay the damn phone.

Spare AA batterys are in the black leather bag between the front & back seat, passenger side along with 4 of the personal tropical vacation fans I give ladies of a certain age so they can chill. Ladies seem to like that gesture and don't leave me on HOLD.
