The county seat has a railroad that back in the day was a big doings in the county I live in. About 20 years ago I was involved with some Habitat for Humanity builds, well actually quite a few. A bunch of the LM$M guys were regulars on the sites. They were some Crazy &&%^^* well I can't say what everyone called them, but if they were on the site, you hardly got much work done for all the laughing. So I'm guessin it wasn't just those RR guys who were a little ate up...... Big Grin


LM&M Railroad still providing fun tours in Warren county Ohio.
Worst thing they can do is cook ya and eat ya

Used to take my wife to jobsites when I was  contractor. Anything that moves dirt is a bulldozer or a steam shovel. Regardless of size, wheels, tracks, or color they fall into one or the other of those categories. Smile

I helped my dad finish some stalls in a barn, once when I was a kid.
Every once in a while, he pulled a nail out of his nail bag, and would throw across the barn-explaining they had the point on the other end, so must be for the other wall.

Doing form work outside in the middle of winter: "you get your heat out of your tools".

Traveling and staying overnight for one contractor, asking if we got reimbursed for meals: "you eat at home, don't you? Who pays for that?".

Plumbstick was typical.

working with my dad on the farm the 3 lb hammer was a "persuader" while the sledges were "psychologists" Wink

Once I passed 200 lbs (Texas Schoolboy football weightlifting results) he'd just tell me to "jump on it"  Rolleyes

We also call PL premium magic pudding. That stuff will hold anything. It's like a weld. We also use it for joining tough joints in trim work. Scrape and sand off the excess when it dries and then it's "giller". Glue and filler in one.

Had a lot of names for my impact driver after I drilled a Phillips bit through my finger.
Can't say any of them here......
