Day 17
The HP-41C series was one of HP's most successful calculators, in production from 1979 to 1990.

A classic!  I believe the 41c was the HP I owned, used, loved.

DAY 17

It has started. We've got 300' of blackberries behind the warehouse that are beginning to ripen. Might be a cobbler made this weekend.

Or muffins,,,, :cheers:

Us too!  :rofl:

I love fresh blackberries!  My grandparents used to a have a good blackberry patch behind their place. We'd sneak out there--one eye open for bears--and pick our fill. The purple smudges around our mouths usually gave us away. But it was worth the scolding.   :rofl:

Day 17




I stockpiled a fair amount of 'emergency' food when I was doing the GSMRE(truck load of fun, highly recommends it) and gonna eat up some of them before they go bad, Rambler helped opening the individual packages up, and after the self-heating pad did it's magic, the sweat soy sauce salami steamed rice was well cooked and ready to eat in about 15min.

Nice use, and I am with Nix, don't let the muffin get the better of Classic. :D

Day 17
Postal service today, received new batteries for my HP-41C. This was HP's first LCD calculator, and the first to support alphanumeric characters, significantly improving the capabilities of the machine. The HP-41C series was one of HP's most successful calculators, in production from 1979 to 1990, and even flew on 9 Space Shuttle missions to aid with some critical calculations should the main computer fail.  :salute:  A real Pocket Rocket  :D
Max - HP41’s are great.  I have 41CV and CX.   Fortunately one came with the rechargeable battery pack - of course long expired.  I changed them out for some strange NiCD 1/4 AAA or thereabouts, saves the Duracells.    I have my eyes peeled for a 41C and a wand.   Oh and a time module.

Day 17 (bonus action shot):


The little Esquire opened a HUGE bag of cashews. Used the scissors to 'push cut' the top of the heavy plastic sack open ( as opposed to clipping it open, little by little ). I think being able to push-cut paper or plastic easily is a nice indication that the scissors are fairly sharp.  :tu:

Some thought that it would take a lifetime to cut through a fullsize muffin with a Classic, Barry did it in less than 20 years.

I wish I could tell you that Barry fought the good fight, and the muffin let him be. I wish I could tell you that - but MTO is no fairy-tale world. He never said who did it, but we all knew.

Day 17.
Well, looks like the downhill slide now.  17 days and I haven't done anything with paracord, till today.  My MC did a great job of cutting with the scissors as well as tightening with the nail file tip.
Just another day at the swamp.

Day 17 ( bonus reenactment shot ):


Earlier in the day, the Esquire did nimble work cutting lenghts of twine with which to tie up wayward pea plants. The peas are admirable for their exploratory nature, but as domesticated garden plants they require supervision and guidance.  I didn't have my phone with me when the actual cutting took place. However,  with no degree of effort spared, the production crew was able to stage a reproduction of the critical action.



Dramatization.
While the actual historic string and knife were used in this recreation,
this is only a reenactment of historic events. No animals or pea plants
were harmed during the making of this photograph.
