... some of you will relate to this.. but for those who don't know; the Jackson is a wheelbarrow that’s been used by Brick and Stone Mason’s for mixing cement/mortar since… good wheelbarrow’s were being made. It's your Father's wheelbarrow.. if your father was a Mason.

My youngest brother "Jeffrey" is a Stone-Mason. He gave me one of his older Jackson's when Lynne and I moved into our 1st home here in RI. He re-oiled the wood handles.

If she could only talk.. the stories she'd tell.  Shocked   I have to put air in her tire frequently.. but I don't mind. I have one of those manual/foot-operated air-pumps. It adds to the whole experience. (my snow-thrower has solid-rubber tires.. hehe)

Loaded with some landscape tools this past Saturday.. Lynne and I..

The Mighty Jackson Jackso12

during.. (below photo is May.. stones were raked-out to install new weed-block material. Outside temperature was approx. 88 degrees F)

The Mighty Jackson 20200520

.. five months later.. It's 68 degrees.. (last Saturday) I come home from work at noon. Lynne is in gear to work. The two of us did a commando on the stone-pile blocking the front walk.

The Mighty Jackson 20201010

.. it would have been a whole lot harder without a wheelbarrow. BTYB guyz who love toolzz

Yep, A quality tool for sure,Roddie. I'm on my second, probably my last.
Another Jackson piece I've used a lot, is their mortar pan.
Mod # MP1 or 1MP? The Mighty Jackson Jackso10
Works well if you're just whipping up a bag or two of
Sakrete or similar concrete mix.
Also, the project looks nice, well done.

Nice work roddie, and finished with smiley face stepping stones.

I have one just like it. Used it last year to mix cement and build a retaining wall.

I keep it somewhat protected on the front porch of the cabin.

You'll always be "Bob" to me. Smile rsv1cox (Robert) is Robert to me. Smile I like the pan. I used a poly one when I set the cobbles around the base of our swimming-pool. The pan worked real good for this application. One mix (bag) would set at least six cobbles . It was easy to drag the pan along.. without having to stand-up, shovel-out the mix.. and kneel back down to set another cobble.

The Mighty Jackson Photo-11

I made a guage-tool to set each cobble's elevation and offset, using the wall-track as a reference.

Hi Robert, Smile You know; I've been worried about you.. since you posted about driving into a hole on your quad.. Jesus Lord. Shocked ....... ya know? You've got a helluva' lot of life experience sir. I can only hope to have half as much. Smile

I like the swing.. in your photo. The swing.. is the thing.. It's a relaxing pause.. that opens up the mind to clearer thinking. Whether alone or with someone.. doesn't matter. Sit for a bit.. reflect.

I'm very glad that you didn't get hurt on the quad. I hope to get more images/intel on the old Buick Riviera that's down the road in storage. My brother inquired that same area for vintage Dodge Power Wagons. There were no less than a dozen late 1940's trucks in that locale. (gone now unfortunately)

I do have a line on a mid 60's Cadillac Coupe De Ville ragtop..

Looks like the ultimate "fair weather" band rig Roddie!  Thumbs Up
Load up the boys and hit the road (unless you're in lockdown like me Sad Goodbye ). We haven't been able to travel outside of our state since March, plus we lost about 3-4 band gigs that were coming up.  Haven't even been (legally)able to get together to jam/rehearse.

I answer to most anything including - "Hey you!"

When annoyed Mom called me ROBERT SCOTT, Mark too but with a heavily accented ROBERT.  My wife just called me Bob or Bobby, a hold-over from our high school days.  When annoyed she just gave me - The look - which was quite often.  She loved that swing. She would pick pine cones off the ground sit on that swing and just contemplate. Looks like Lynne has a bad case of carpel tunnel or a broken thumb or wrist.

I love those old Cadillac boats roddie.  The dirty white convertible on the trailer gives me chills.  Years ago I would have torn into the thing "like a monkey on a cupcake."  Some Everyone Loves Raymond quote of seasons ago.

OK.. six months since Robert (rsv1cox/Bob Vining) posted. "Robert".. you paint a picture with words that I often see so clearly, like I was once a visitor.. or acquaintance in another life. Smile Many of you people write that way.. and it makes it a pleasure to read your posts. Smile Smile

The "Mighty Jackson" emerged from the shed this weekend. Time to transplant/harden-off some seedlings started a few weeks ago. Got out the homemade  "sifter"; a 2' X 2' square-frame of 1" X 2" pine with a 2' X 2" sheet of 1/4" hardware-cloth stapled to it.

The Mighty Jackson 20210411
The Mighty Jackson 20210412

I have a dirt-pile...  Laughing (you people should all have one) which receives the previous seasons dirt.. roots.. emptied from pots the following Spring. I shovel some onto my sieve-frame.. and sift into the "Jackson".

The Mighty Jackson 20210413

Peat-Moss is mixed into the dirt,, which is what we transplant our seedlings with. Yesterday we transplanted some Basil.. because Lynne makes Basil Pesto.. and we by-chance scored a good deal on "Pine-Nuts" (Pinoli, Pignoli) Pine-Nut WIKI

a key ingredient often substituted with walnuts.. but lacking the Pine-Nut essence.

Then there are several Nasturtium seedlings.. a Crimson Red variety chosen to attract/invite hummingbirds to our property.

We're experimenting with bird-bath/fountains this season. I'd seen videos of bird-fountain/baths and wanted to dive-into the concept. Still-water bird-baths can attract mosquitos to breed.. but the fountains prevent that.. because of the moving/oxygenated-water.

The Mighty Jackson 20210414

The above fountain-bath is solar-powered. I watched a vid on the subject..  ordered the fountain-parts and built mine. I am happy with the results. It runs on sunlight.. period. A large-enough basin will feed the fountain for "weeks" providing the return-bowl catches most of the fountain-splash.

Love your home-made fountain solar powered bath roddie.  I would think nothing less than you scratching out a clone. Is it something that birds use?  We always had bird baths in Florida.  We would watch the birds flap their wings and splash water all over themselves.

I have made a few of those sifters myself, using mesh just like yours.  Wish I could take you on a camera journey that I made yesterday.  Previous owner left a small planter box that he and later I grew tomatoes and corn in.  Timbers rotten, but the black soil was excellent.  Didn't get out the Jackson, but instead used the ATV and Craftsman cart.  Shoveled out the soil filling the cart and used it to fill low spots in the lawn and Ground Hog/Fox dens out in the field.  

All that's left.

The Mighty Jackson P1010950

My dirt pile doubles as a fire backstop.  Burned off a Lot of those limbs cut last year a couple of days ago during a rain storm.

Area to the left was the brush pile, thankfully now gone, some of my back along with it.

Hey Robert! I like a nice contained brush-fire. Wish I was there to help you! Hope your back-ache is gone. I eat ibuprofen like candy.. so I can relate.

The fountains are fun to make. It takes some messing-around with different tubing.. and drilling-out the assorted spray-nozzles to get the desired flow.. but they'll be fun to watch. I bought three kits.. and built a second fountain this evening. I'll fill the "bowl" with water tomorrow afternoon after work to test it.

The Mighty Jackson 20210415
The Mighty Jackson 20210416

Tomato stakes are used to suspend the solar-panels. The chip-dip containers hold the panels and the stakes are fastened with little zip-ties. The wire-harness from the pump has a weather-proof connector that screws-onto a short pigtail at the panel. The fountain-kit doesn't come with tubing.. so that must be sourced. I used some latex/surgical tubing leftover from when I made some sling-shots.. (remember when I posted about those?.. Shocked )
