So since it was such a nice day out and there just happened to be a big dumpster in the driveway, why not clean out the garage? Well not mine since it's at my parents house, but I always do it anyways, I'm really the only one that uses it. lol.

So I started late after dropping the fiance off to work, started at 6:30pm, finished about 10pm. I still have a bit more to do, just buy some hooks and put my tools up on the wall. Time was cut short for a minute, as I reached behind my chopsaw to get a couple big things before I was going to sweep the workbench, I got stung by a bee. That xxxx was hiding in the sawdust somehwere, luckily there was no stinger in my hand. Got me on my left hand right at the base of my thumb, on the inside. darn tender spot. I hope he's not there tomorrow, does anyone know if bees move on once their disturbed? I didn't see a nest or anything, just the one.

So with that out of the way, and lots of cursing and swearing later, I got the workbench cleared off and got the garage sweeped. Here is the before picture:

Once a bee stings it dies.   

No matter how much pain it gives you, short of anaphalactic shock, it costs the bee more.

I use to have a scorpion that lived under my tablesaw till I got rid of the cutoffs I was storing there.

It looks like you made a great amount of head way in cleaning the garage though, you want to visit Texas?

Looks good now, ya was busy that's for sure. As far as ya "little" friend, if his stinger didn't pull out he's still alive, some bit as well as sting and if you didn't get the nest, he's still around... somewhere, so be careful when your in "his" area!!!

Very good start.  One suggestion is to add another light fixture on the right side of the other one to add more light.

Thanks for the comments everyone. And as an update the bee is no more. Yay! Although with a lot less junk on the workbench I think it moves a bit now, had some weird things going on the other day. Extra gouges were rocking and I had a weird cut on a couple pieces. I agree with you chuck that I need more lighting, kind of dull in there at the moment. And yes Alice, the hardest part now is keeping it clean.

My wife was fussing the other day that I don't clean out my shop nearly enough.  My dad heard her and commented that she should have seen my grand-father's shop.  It had 6-8" of saw dust on the floor, and everything else, all the time.  If anyone asked him about it he would explain that it was so much easier on his back.  Concrete floor kind of made him hurt all over.  Sawdust and savings cushioned it and he could work out there a lot longer with no pain.  So he banned all brooms from the shop.  A fire hazard for sure since he smoked.

My wife has started carving spoons in half of my shop she uses the band saw a lot, the carvings leave chips all over, after two months I took her out and showed her how the vacuum worked, were is is stored, where the remote and the attachments are.

She looked at me and laughed, she said that I do such a good job of cleaning why should she do a Half arsed job.

We may need separate shops.    Sad

You can now apply the precedent she has set to all sorts of household chores that she cares about.

We may be treading into "spousal management" territory!  smiley=shake head.gif

I wish I could find one, She was dieing some fleece last month and the pots are still waiting to be cleaned, when I ask her about it she said I don't need them yet I'll clean them when I need them.

This attitude could be why I do the laundry, cook and clean the kitchen, she got a rumba and a Scuba robots to vacuum the rest of the house and clean the kitchen and bathroom floors, they work darn well too.

Do they?  I tried to convince my wife to get them when we got the new house here in Texas, but was unsuccessful.  Do you know what happens if they encounter cat vomit?

Well I have no idea what they do for cat vomit, I just think it'd run over it. But maybe the Scuba might do it, it's the mop version of the roomba. But the Roomba is just awesome, I love it, Just turn it on and let it go. Never seen the carpet so clean. You think it's clean and then that thing goes along.

Never had a chance to find out my Rat Terror took care of her cats before we got the robots.  Then the darn dog decided that she likes my wife better than me, will not even look at me twice any more I just do not exist for the dog. Unless I have her food bowl in my hand.
