The Boring Co. tops 30,000 hats sold

That didn’t toque too long! The Boring Company has now sold 30,000 hats to fund its hole-some mission, founder Elon Musk tweeted today. That’s double the sales Musk announced just three weeks ago. Production will be capped at 50,000 hats, so if the current momentum doesn’t fez out, trilby all gone soon.

The Boring Company’s Initial Hat Offering launched on Oct. 18. The black baseball caps cost $20 and all cash raised goes toward the boring company, which is developing cost-efficient ways to dig tunnels for transportation. Though it works with fedora and state officials on some projects, The Boring Company says it relies solely on private funding.

After 50k hats, we will start selling The Boring Company flamethrower

Manu and Poppy are together. Though we only have Manu’s nose so you are going to have to take my word for it.

And back in the home barn. time-005time-002

And now I must away!  I have another very fast moving day.

I need to drag my stock trailer with its precious cargo over to a town forty minutes away and sell these two hogs. Then back here to do chores. Then get dressed and drive up the the railway station and catch the train to spend the evening with a friend.  She is miles away so I am going to stay the night and will be back tomorrow.

But there may not be any photographs tomorrow – though on the other hand there might, it depends how exciting the train trip is.

See you tomorrow

So many hats, so many heads…Pinterest

Who Killed Men’s Hats? Think Of A Three Letter Word Beginning With ‘I’
By Robert Krulwich

A hundred years ago — and that’s when this picture was taken, in 1912 — men didn’t leave home without a hat. Boys wore caps. This is a socialist political rally in Union Square in Manhattan. There may be a bare head or two in this crowd, but I think those heads are women’s.

Here’s another rally, Union Square again. This time it’s an Occupy Wall Street demonstration. A hundred years have passed. Same place. Same kind of crowd. But this time: hardly a hat.

Flip back one more time. We’re back, I think, in Union Square, with Emma Goldman arriving by car. She’s another socialist (this isn’t an…

Sealing the Walls and the Ceiling

No Facilities

This post is part of Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday and is brought to you by the voices in my head, who have been set free from their dungeon. Linda says:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “sealing/ceiling.” Use one, use both, have fun!

Have fun? Oh, we’re having fun. We bought lumber, we’re using power tools, we’re lifting stuff with winches – which is almost as good as having a crane – and things are taking shape.

This summer’s project is to replace the siding on our garage.

We could just replace certain sections, but that would require sealing a bunch of…
