    A bit of a reprieve in temps today at only 87 and cloudy. Then at least 10 days in the 90s and into the 100s! Didn’t hit 100 all last summer. Finally got some rain yesterday. Close to 1/2” and badly needed! Nice!
    Annual Dr appointment this morning, then hope to get some lilac trimming in. My UT is getting pretty full so I need to haul it off to the limb recycling center to make mulch.
    If it’s not too hot and I can get in contact with the dairyman, I need to get a load of composted manure for my better half’s roses. May be too late by the time I’m ready.
    I love all the car show pics! My first car was a a 1955 Belair two door coupe. White and baby blue. Had to sell it in college to pay tuition. It would be a fine antique today! “Hindsight is always 20-20!”

    Everyone make the most of your day! It doesn’t get any easier!

    Thanks, our town has a monthly show during the summer. It's a huge draw. Food, booze and cars some motorcycles. I was trying to be more selective. Most of the the stuff is nice. But the crowds are huge. 4.5 blocks including parking lots. With a 1 direction cruse down the middle.

    Man, I'll tell you what. There's nothing like farm pond bass!! :)

    This one was hiding under the raft that's about 15' from the shore.

    The kicker is the trusty Zebco 33 worked really well!

    Stay cool everyone. I usually fish between 3 and 4 hours. This AM was only 1.5 hours...it's brutal.20240621_081413.jpg 20240621_081500.jpg

    A little something every chance we get.
    :pccoffee: Good morning Porch Pals & Sue! Well, I think we're mostly done with Alberto. Got home from errands yesterday, and it got real cloudy and dark, so, the dog and I decided to chair this one out. Nothing happened. Oh well. Then, 4:30, big wind gust knocked over 6 pots at once, and while I was cleaning it up, the downpour started. Two bursts totalling 0.75", and no need for yard watering this week. We might get some late afternoon action, but I should be done mowing and with the work I put off by then!

    Thanks for the additional pics Murray!

    Looking at the 1963 Galaxie reminds me of a car I used to own and to this day wishing never sold it !!


    Back in the early 80's while still on active duty in the Marine Corps i I found this 67 Mercury Cyclone GT in Socal


    It had very low miles and had built 390 FE with ported 428 SCJ cyl heads and a 406 Police interceptor 3x2 intake with the very rare oval aluminum Thunderbird polished aluminum air cleaner

    If I had the hood open and people would go crazy and ask me if this was a 427 side oiler with dual carbs . They would even look just above the oil pan to see if it had the noticeable side oiler bulge on the block . I even had to remove the air cleaner when parked as I was afraid it would get stolen

    I did have plans before selling it and installing a Ford Tunnel port 427

    Afternoon all:

    Chuck, a guy that I know had almost an almost identical Cyclone to the one that you posted about, it did have a 427 in it and it really ran.

    Interesting morning, stopped to BS with another old buddy, he wasn't there but showed up shortly with his brand new Corvette, which I then got an education about the inner workings of it, all I can say is it's amazing the technology that's built into them!
    At his business he now has a room dedicated to his dad who was a Colonel in the Air Force, he has his flight suit, helmet, and a bunch of pictures of planes his dad flew and some other related items, think he said his dad was the base commander at the Tan Son Nhut air base.
    He related a story that his dad told him, they were flying a mission over North Vietnam where his wingman had fired all of his rockets and his dad had 1 left, he noticed smoke coming up and decided to attack whatever was there with his remaining rocket. He came in at treetop level with some small branches actually hitting the plane, his son asked him if that wasn't dangerous, and the reply was that it was safer than flying higher and risking being shot down since being that low he was gone before anything could even begin to get their sights on him! :eek:
    Turns out he ended up hitting either a major underground ammunition manufacturing facility or ammunition storage facility and received some type of medal for it.
    Enough of the war stories, thank you Col. and may you RIP!

    Afternoon all:

    Heres' an interesting tidbit my buddy showed me, his companies name is BRADCO and he deals in CO2 including the big industrial tanks. He has a personalized plate on his work truck that reads BRADCO2, his corvette has another personal plate on it that reads BRADC02, you can only get one personalized plate and they won't issue another plate like it in the state, does anyone see the difference in them,----sneaky!!!!! :laughing:

    I bet they wouldn't have issued those plates to separate owners. Since it was the same guy... he got them.

    Yep, one uses the letter O and to other uses the numeral 0, smart sneaky guy. I to am surprised they allowed that

    Good eye there @Sprig, yup, one is the letter O, and the other is the numeral zero, even though they are "almost" identical that makes them different, and that's why they issued it to him.

    It's a pain when plans don't follow your directives..... No spare plugs to add the second pump in the greenhouse; so solder and shrink wrap. One doesn't work (was a spare). Even so, good one would not pump up the clear tube to the top. Soldered in a second spare, and now I'm out of solar battery? I have more than enough battery current + the solar to run. Sheesh. Worse off than when I started.

    Nope - bought one tomato plant and planted the cucumbers and the other tomatoes grew in my compost bucket (so I moved them to a regular pot) Remember I'm in middle SC so we warm up much sooner than other places.
