A Treasure Hunt

There was an added treat with the 8 locker units that I picked up on Monday. Some of the lockers still had their locks in place. Oh My! What hidden treasures will I find?

I stopped at Kris and Mike's after my paint run to St. Cloud yesterday to pick up some bolt cutters. Mike suggested that I use a side grinder instead. So this morning I took a grind at the lock on the locker right next to Billy's locker.

The sparks were flying, including a couple that land right on top of my recently shorn head. (When I was cutting some bolts for the trailer last Friday I didn't have this problem, but after my haircut yesterday most of my helmet was apparently absent). The hasp was cut. Now for the treasure.

Damn! Its empty. Oh well, I have 15 more to search. More sparks, more hasps rent asunder, more empty lockers.

Then I cut another. (The gloves really helped with the cascade of sparks.)

There was my treasure. A bag of stale pretzels, some empty Tupperware and a spoon. Oh well, maybe I'll find treasure somewhere else.

Always chew your pretzels before you swallow.

Hey - I think the lockers are the treasure!!! I'm plotting ways to get some of those to my house! LOL

Be sure and duck the sparks! Your diet plan one day and grinding the next don't really work together do they?
