    Evening all:

    That's crazy, and to think that AA fuel dragsters turned in the 8's around the middle 60's!

    A little something every chance we get.
    :rain: Well, that was a surprise. One little orange blob of rain moseyed on down 183 right through town about 5:30 - 6:00. And it brought 1.02" inches of rain with it!

    :thumbsup::thumbsup: That is the way to teach. I always had a manual for the vehicles I owned and just dug in and made the repair. Basic understanding of tools is needed. A torque wrench is your friend.


    Thank you for the pics. I enjoyed them.

    Sorry to read this. I really hate cancer. I have lost too many friends to cancer.

    Mark: Sorry to read about Lynn's mom. Hope you have a summer vacation planned and we need a few more pics of the Z3 out and about.

    Good morning. Chair yoga starts up today and I need to make a shopping run. Chicken winds for dinner tonight.

    Thanks for checking in @Devious6 , condolences for your loss. Having lost my dad in 2020 and mom in 2021 your story still hits me pretty close to home. It's a stressful time, so many things to deal with besides just the grief. Our best to you and Lynn.

    :pccoffee: :wave: to the rest of you sorry lot! :p We stacked one of the wood piles yesterday; I was surprised to have finished the whole thing in a day. Two more to go! The hot 'n humid stuff is supposed to arrive later this week so I plan on getting out there and getting as much done as possible before then.

    Crazy, I’m getting ready to do the same thing. I really want to go metal, I have three roofers coming in the next couple weeks to give me some quotes.

    Prices for the metal vary so much it's hard to believe. When I built my shop/garage there were places that priced it at twice the price of other sources.

    Hi Sue! Kinda good enough!
    Had to go to San Marcos for wine, but I got it! Putzed and fixed the smoker switch. All the further I got.
    Spent the 5:30 slot waiting for another big storm that gave up on us. 0.01". But we got a whole inch yesterday, so no complaints.

    New hearing aids yesterday. So far so good. Easier to get up and running. Old ones were almost three years old, and one was only working intermittently... it got wet. My fault. I like the new ones, same brand, but better in every way. Hearing aids dryer coming today. :thumbsup:
