    Man I suck with computers, it's just beyond me. Some folks our age just get it and understand it and then theres folks like me that can barely use them. I just dont know my way around computers and they change so fast that I cant keep up. I can barely edit a video and post it to YouTube. I tried to figure out sketchup for designing my woodshop projects but that was a no and extremely frustrating. Back to the pencil and paper.

    Well that's way ahead of me...

    I've wanted to do some youtube posts for awhile now, but it's intimidating to expand into another computer venue that I just know will be loaded with frustrations. As you say, it seems like some people have some kind of inherent ability, but that's not me. Anything computer is a grind.

    :pccoffee: :wave: sixtys/wannabes/bourbon trailers. My wife has a distant relative in Kentucky whose stepfather was the founder of Maker's Mark.
    She inherited a bunch of stock or ownership rights or somesuch -- and she never touches a drop of alcohol!

    I was fortunate enough to be invited along for a private tour of a car museum near us, 3 Dog Garage. If you're a fan of Fords, and particularly of racing Fords, the place is pure heaven. Every kind of Cobra, Mustang, Ford GT, drag racer, road racer, NASCAR racer, you can imagine. Most of them have historical significance; for example there are cars that were driven by Dan Gurney, Mario Andretti, Parnelli Jones, and a litany of other famous drivers. I was there a few years ago and it was one floor in one building; yesterday we toured 2 buildings, each with 3 floors of cars. Incredible place.

    I didn't take a lot of pictures but I did send one back to my wife, who loves woodies.

    Morning all:

    :( Sorry to hear that you have a cold that's "kicking your butt" Sue.
    Are you sure it's not a flu bug, last time I had the flue it felt like all the energy was sucked out of me, didn't want to do anything but rest.

    :(:( NOT LOOKING GOOD, we could only manage to catch 2 small walleyes last night in around 4 hrs., the good news is that that the stripers weren't hitting either.

    :rain:Good Morning Porch Pals & Sue (get better quick!)! Wetter this morning than from any of the big storms we didn't get, and no official rain. Just a ton of humid on the ground. Too tired this AM to get to a too wet car show. Looks like a day off.
    Hit the field fence with a weed eater - someone with a riding mower actually cut some grass out there; I think to clear the fence for my neighbors trailer exit. Mowed, watered made burgers, fixed that pump that burst again, and ordered a new one.
    I'd be happy to come sit at that bar, have A drink, and just listen to some tales, Mark. I can't drink the hard stuff anymore, but I can have A drink...

    Fyi, Sam's club has Mobil 1 0w20 oil on sale again for $33 a case. I've been stocking up, I probably have a 5 year supply at the rate I've been going with my taco. 2 years and 7k miles, changed the oil at 1k and again at 5k just because it had been a year. Same thing will happen this year because I ride a ebike to work and don't put miles on my truck unless the weather is bad. I like a annual oil change, lol.

    Thanks Ken. It seems to be going away, finally

    That's why I'm glad my kid's are good with computers.... if I have issues, I ask them for help. They pretty much grew up with them.

    Don't think it's the flu, but it's always a possibility. But doing better today, Carl. Sorry your fishing outing didn't get you any more fishies....

    Thanks Kurt :thumbsup:

    I am not the best but I figure stuff out. Learned a lot yesterday. There is a difference between DDR3 and DDR$ memory modules, they are keyed differently and will not fit into the same memory slot. My CPU is not on the authorized list to upgrade to Win 11 and it really is not a good idea to force the upgrade. The entire process was easier than I expected.

    Good morning. Off to the gym early and the Avalon will be getting new and better seat padding in the front seats. I need to be at the shop at 8:30 this morning.

    I helped a girl that grew up with my son get a hunting rifle. It was my old 600 Mohawk in 243. Probably worth a bundle but I would never use it so it’s where it needs to be.

    Hope everyone had a pleasant weekend.
    Dropping off Mrs. SpruceMica's Odyssey at Honda dealer this morning for a seat belt recall. Apparently some have an issue with the seat belt latches :eek:
    Couple of small landscape projects this week and need to touch up our sign post

    Good morning porch crew. Some rain this last weekend and it's starting to green up. After the long cold winter and cool start to spring, it's a good to see. Have a great week everyone. I didn't get all I wanted to get done last week but I got some stuff my bride wanted done also. We're both still not moving like we want. Her hip and shoulder and my shoulder slowed us down a bit. We find we sometimes have to help each other out a bit more with the small things and a lot more with the bigger projects it would be nice if we both weren't lame on the same left side. :wave:

    Morning all:

    Good choice for a girl, light, compact, and not too much recoil. I had one .308 600 Mohawk NIB that I sold, should have kept it even though it would be sitting here NIB. The 600 and 660 Magnums are my favorites, and from what I've seen, the .350 Mags. are highly desired as scabbard guns in bear areas, and bring even more of a premium in those areas.
    Think I paid $86 or $89 for the Mohawk on sale, I knew a guy that bought 10 of them at that price and then sold them off little by little as they went up in value, I think I sold mine for $400 quite a while back, today probably could get $850 NIB, some other calibers like a 6mm or .243 might bring that used.

    :pccoffee: Good Morning Porch Pals & Sue! Don't know why, but it's a Monday all right. Maybe it can do better as the day moves along. Would have rained on me anyway at yesterday's car show, and the San Antonio show Saturday is looking wet. Wet all week, matter of fact.

    Lovely spot there sir!

    Put new front rotors and brake pads on the Tacoma - and gave the rascal a wash job. Oil change coming up soon. Our weather has been rather nice so far - cool eves and days in the 80's. Hope the temps stay down a bit longer, May is the month where we start to hit the 100's and I dread that siege as it seems to go on forever. It has gotten steadily hotter and drier here over the last 20 years.

    Working on the yard gate, it was originally cedar on a steel frame - boards are too weathered and split to stay on the screws. Looked for replacements and the offerings at Lowes and HD are warped and split - can't even sort the pile and find 7 decent sticks. Found some redwood that will have to work. This time, I'm thinking I'll try a bit harder to get the gate's bottom "sweep" to work better. Too many rattlers got through the fencing last year and I've got the long runs done out back along the wash - so the gate is the remaining weak point.

    My favorite ball player was Ted Williams. All he accomplished and managed to fight in two wars.
    It was a travesty what his family did with him after he died.

    Mine too, saw him his last season when I was 5 y.o.

    Hard to see with the room reflection, but if you look under his feet you can see the autograph...it's genuine. I've got a smaller different photo that's autographed and a 1941 Life magazine with him on the cover and some other stuff from the '50s. Teddy Ballgame. John Glenn's wing man at one point during Korean War.

    Had his family respected his wishes, they may have felt the sadness that I felt at respecting my own fathers similar wishes.
