Walnuts?!?! Ya ruined it!

It took me a while to get used to grapes in m'chicken salad, and I love grapes. Not big on nuts. Not in brownies, not in cakes/pies, not in my chicken salad, not on my chin or forehead, either.

I don't know, somehow he was clicking them a tiny bit looser one at a time. He wasn't using the ratcheting handle to do it, it was more like he was hitting a release button but keeping the ratchet handle down while he did it?

I don't usually put nuts in my chicken salad, but I noticed a bag of walnuts in the freezer (from last summer when I picked them off the ground at a pet sitting job) and thought I'd toss some in. It was the perfect addition. I love all types of nuts.

Even you.

Dinner was pan-fried kielbasa and beer-soaked sauerkraut, fried potatoes and onions, and buttered rye bread. Super tasty and incredibly healthy. (Heh.)



Just (almost) like gramma used to make.

Crushed nuts, I should have known.

I'd have laid that saw over on a pad or Styrofoam, pulled the pallet and shit out from under it, then stood it up. Would be less exciting though.

Yabbut it started on a tabletop 4 feet off the ground. You've got a 4-foot-tall stack of pallets and Styrofoam to lay it over onto?

In the picture the pallet is on the floor. Why didn't he lift it off the truck and set it on the floor thus avoiding the step shown in the picture which I was responding to.

Guess :

It was a shorter trip from the tailgate to the tabletop, compared to the trip from the tailgate to the floor. Easier to execute a controlled landing. That got the truck out of the way, and left an opening for the "friend" to escape.

Table top? Where did that come from?

Oh, I've got it! It was sitting in the foam pocket on the pallet but then there was a wood and cardboard crate/box over it.
So straps through the pallet to get it off the truck then take the box off and lift it out of the base.

Grandmadigr used to say "...cold as kraut...". I think of that whenever I hear the word.

Sure - beer gives the sauerkraut a fuller, more complex flavor. I also add caraway seeds to my sauerkraut for a hint of citrus/anise flavor. Very tasty!

No no--you're still thinking about this logically, like someone who knew what they were doing. The table saw was wrapped in styrofoam, on top of a wooden pallet. The store used a forklift (presumably) to load the pallet onto the back of his regular-person pickup truck. He drove home. He backed the truck up to the open garage door, and shoved the pallet up to the edge of the truck's open tailgate. But we don't own a forklift, so he rolled a workbench up to the edge of the tailgate, since they were approximately the same height, and then he and the neighbor hefted the saw off the pallet and laterally onto the table with their manly arms. Then the neighbor fled, because it was way heavier than they thought and he nearly bust a hernia just sliding it over a few feet.

Now it was stuck on the table, and Mr. Clod was alone. So he rolled the workbench back a few feet until it was under the ceiling racks, used the ratchet straps to lift the saw a few inches, then slid the workbench out from underneath it. About this time--with the several-hundred-pound piece of machinery dangling sideways from the ceiling--he began to realize how incredibly insane this whole plan was, but it was far too late to reverse course. So he moved the pallet and the styrofoam underneath the hanging table saw to raise the "floor" as many inches as he could. Then he began an even more insane process of tightening, loosening, and adding straps to rotate the fucking thing 90 degrees so that it was now upright, then continued lowering it down onto the floor.

At some point during the rotation process, a rolling office chair was used to support one bottom corner while a strap was moved from a side-supporting to a top-supporting position. I'm not even kidding. I really and truly thought I was going to have to call 911 because he'd crushed a limb.
