Good Neighbor

Made a trip in to SB this morning to take care of some business, get supplies and take a shower. When I got home I noticed something didn't look right after I'd made several trips unloading the jeep. Well there was a large cardboard box sitting in front of the outdoor fridge so I looked in it to find the below.
I know what I'll do with the above. ;)

Not sure what I'll do with this, but I'll think of something. First will be to check the wattage while its connected and if its low enough I may keep the laptop connected to it since the battery for the laptop died a long time ago. If it turns out to pull too many watts while connected at night then I'll probably add a handle and use it for a portable power supply to run a drill or the like and only charge it during the day when there is enough solar. Sure is nice to have good neighbors. ;)

Update on the swamp cooler is that the belt stayed on it like it was supposed to from about 9:00 PM last night to about 3:30 this morning when I turned it off. It was still on right when I checked it about 15 minutes ago, but I doctored it up again just for good measure before turning it on. I won't be putting it back in the window because sitting it on an ice chest I can direct it any where I want to which makes it real nice.

  4. CC, an empty 90 proof would make a good target.

    Cindy, you may need an RnR from that other desert before long.

    Frann, I wonder what the two would taste like? If it was 151 proof with some Amaretto that would make a coconut flavored Cocaine Rush.
