None in Bowie but it is 24 degrees in my back yard this morning.

Ordered some LED's, this morning, for a project when I receive my Homer grill in a few weeks.

I need to bust ass today and rake leaves plus get the pond ready for winter. Always something to do in the yard.

^^^ Nice and clean Charles. TY for sharing the pics.

Wish the CFO would let me buy another Vette. When I was younger I had a 66 with the L72 engine option. I was very young and dumb. I believe all of us have been there at least once.

The primered wall is what every wall in the house looked like with holes and nail pops. Had to sink the nails, then overlap a screw head on them to keep them in then spackle, primer and paint. Almost done...Then it's clean up time and move in time....

I often wonder how I was able to do so much when I was working.

Doing it right!!!

My home is built with nails as well so I feel your pain. Over the years I have countersunk some nails that keep popping out so I remove them and replace with a dry wall screw. That fix seems to last.

If you have run out of the 3M blue tape, the next time you need to tape up a wall for painting use Frog yellow take. It leaves behind almost no sticky residue. I pick up mine at the local Sherwin Williams store. Do not confuse the Frog yellow tape with the Frog green tape.

Thanks for the info Tom, the kids bought the tape at Lowes. Almost done with the painting that we need taping for but I'll keep it in mind for the next paint job. Actually I'd rather not paint at all but...(I have been doing as little as possible).

The two that were really under rated though, were the 2nd design OC L-88, and the ZL-1; 430 HP rated, 550HP out of the crate! And then there was the Can-Am 430. Ask the Chevy guys about that one! I think the HP rating was 600+. Those were not available in production cars.

OK, Now I know what a Pinzgauer is, but still need pics. of an owned one, not a generic one!

same here i'd give up all my toys to get it and the 1936 Pontiac 3 window rumble seat I had back. that 36 had a gto 389 ram air motor ,4 speed trans in it.
Adjusting the valves was a weekly occurrence for me on the L72. I got really good at identifying the valve by listening with the valve cover on. Do not ever turn over the engine with the valve cover off. Do not ask me how I know.

Aren't they pretty!!!! Hope you don't get flashbacks!
I always adjust them running, and always had a mess. The clips do help, but still get some oil on the motor.

Morning, Sue!!


After some TLC of hand-rubbing boiled linseed oil into the stock and a good all-around cleaning, here's that 1944 Mi1 Garand again. I hope I look that good at 70 years old. Oh, wait, there's no chance of that!!!

But you has oil clips, I did not have clips. I swear it looked like the oil shot 6 feet away from the engine bay.
