A few days ago I went to the range and shot pistols. I picked up a couple of pieces of brass and stuck them in my pants pocket. I forgot about them and my wife never checks my pockets. Anything in them gets washed along with the pants. She found the brass in the washing machine and brought it to me. It was CLEAN. I have been thinking about getting a small laundry bag to put my brass in and throw it in the washing machine but my wife will have to know what I'm doing. I can't remember how to program her fancy washer.
