Thread Name: BS: How Many Spatulas Do YOU Own???
Subject: RE: BS: How Many Spatulas Do YOU Own???
hey! That BIG spatula in my pic....durned if it didn't prove useful just this afternoon! We had us this slushy snow the other day, and then some cold weather, and it left a layer of icy gunk on my driveway which resisted all efforts to shovel. I says to myself, "self..."...(I call myself that at times).."...this icy gunk is a LOT like a batch of hash browns that is tryin' to stick to the bottom of yer skillet...and what do you do with them? Why, you draw lines in 'em with the sharp edge of yer spatula, breakin' 'em up into managable sections, then you kinda scrunchy-scrape 'em away from the pan!"

So I (the aforementioned self) did just that....chop, chop, chop...making a checkerboard of that gunky ice..(or was it icy gunk?)...then I just slud (as Dizzy Dean woulda said) that big 'ol spatula..(which just 'might' be useful for removin' old tile some day) under the chunks, and LO! asphalt appeareth!...

Now iffen it hadn't been for Mudcat and this inspiration of this thread, I mighta been out there with chemicals and old garden spades and a lot of cuss words! And I got Dick Greenhaus and Susan of DT coming down to stay with me Friday so as to make CAMSCO available at FSGW's one day mini-festival, and there will be a decent place to park and walk. Yessir...serendippity, thy name is Mudcat!
