    A man and his tools. Knowledge is power. His is like a small firecracker. But a niche is a niche.

    I wonder if he’s related to the fish expert.

    I was wondering the same thing. I suspect he has borrowed Chet’s table. Wonder if he asked permission?

    That type is easier to use. When the hose twists, those nozzles shaped like guns are harder to hold at an awkward angle.

    Perhaps he can explain why the shower nozzle can do both hot and cold, but the garden nozzle can only do cold.

    @Bilan

    I’m certain Roger can explain all aspects of the adjustable nozzle!

    I believe Roger is in need of adjustment.

    Where are his pamphlets??!


    Even Chet knows you can’t make a dime… OK, Chet, yes, 50¢…. without a pamphlet to sell.


    Well…. not counting the quarters pressed hurriedly into his hand by the ones who… um…. “just don’t have time to stop right now…”

    Oooh, sounds like the Tiki’s jumpin’…………..

    Gonna grab my ‘shaky wig’ and head on over. And remember “One munky don’t stop the show!” Wheeeee!

    Bilan…. yes, that’s almost as mysterious as how my insulated tote can keep hot things hot or cold things cold.

    I noticed Roger isn’t collecting any money. I believe he’s doing this to ‘give back’ to society, don’tcha know?

    Bev… I guess you’re right!


    For Chet, it’s more of a way to supplement his social security….

    but then, if you have no money he’s still perfectly willing to pass along what he knows.
    For hours.


    We’re so lucky….
    Ballard Street is rich in folklore and shared knowledge.

    Tnaks for that song….
    hadn’t heard it in so long I’d almost forgotten about it…


    I DID forget, if I ever knew it, the line about the monkey.


    Gotta play that for OUR Monkey…. LOL

    AS a matter of fact, since Ballard Street is closed off on Sundays, we’ll be on this block all weekend.


    By Monday, we’ll know everything about adjustable nozzles.

    And possibly a few other subjects.


    Wonder what Roger knows about, say, push lawnmowers.
    Mine needs adjustment.
