    Gotta love the way some folks drive.... was passed by TWO morons the other morning over a double yellow line :facepalm: because I didn't get up to speed fast enough :rolleyes: I'd heard the popo won't do anything unless they see the violation - good they took your word.

    I need to check on a pure gas place... for gas for the mower and weed eater. See if they run better :notsure:

    :yay: doesn't happen often enough

    :wave:

    Yeah, been lucky on several occasions. Just :pray: my brakes never fail me.

    :pray: your neighbors get better fast. Yeah, head-ons are never a good thing. My son's mentor - good friend of his, was killed when some punk kid in a durango crossed the center line and hit Gil's ton and a half truck. Don't know if the accident or the fire killed him. Really hope it was the accident. It was an old truck with only lap belts. Gil ran off the road to avoid the punk, but he didn't make it far enough over :(

    Didn't know they changed gas mixtures.... but thanks for the info

    Morning Tom. :) This is my long week/short break (work thru Sat night) ... Gonna try to get Christmas lights down and put back away. Was gonna do that last Monday, but ended up comforting Bear all day. :eek: I've really spoiled that little guy, he wasn't happy unless he was sitting on my lap for the first 24 hrs after the accident. :rolleyes:

    How about you? Kitchen project starts in about a week and a half, yes? I'm sure you'll be happy to get that underway. :cool:

    Hey Tom, What is your opinion on these? Just saw one on craigslist NIB for $40; guy ordered for wrong truck. My grill, and now my towing mirrors are chrome. I've got a couple chips at the leading edge of my hood that I need to tend to when things warm up this Spring. Thought this might prevent further issues there?

    After working out I need to get some firewood for the weekend. We are supposed to have a wintery mix all weekend. Next up is to get the laundry room packed up and cabinets off the wall. I might try to paint the laundry room on Sunday.

    I also want to continue to pack up the kitchen and get a little head start on that part of the project. Next week will be the packing of the kitchen and relabeling the cabinets for redeployment in the laundry room and in the garage. The garage will be a springtime project do those cabinets will go into the shed and out of the way.

    I need to take a few before pics for the project.

    I will look when I get back home. Of it attaches to the underside of the hood it will be ok. I need to look at mine to see who the maker is .

    Have you found a good source for your wood yet? How's the price on firewood over there?

    And yes you do ... I think I left the popcorn wagon parked over by the porch. Yep, there it is. ;)

    Morning Paul :wave:

    That's not a bad price IMHO. Those splitters are worth their weight in gold. Beats my childhood growing up, when I was so thankful when my pops bought me a splitting maul because it was such a luxury over the axe or wedges and sledge. :rolleyes: We switched over to wood heat when I was about 11 yrs old and the first oil/gas crisis hit mid 70s. I was a wood splitting machine from then 'til I ran away to the Air Force at 18. My Dad used to piss me off on purpose because I'd developed a habit of working out my frustrations at the big oak splitting stump in the backyard. There was always wood to be split. :laughing:

    Good morning all. Yesterday was great weather with a little rain in the evening. It looks as if today is going to be nice also. Yahoo!

    I have used up a few handles, but I have been swinging the same maul since the early 70's. I actually enjoy it.

    Have a good day!

    Rob:
    :thumbsup: On the bug deflector. I have a Auto Vent Shade, AVS, myself. Attaches under the hood with a plastic screw and does not touch the paint on the lip or top of the hood. At first I though the screws would not be tough enough but I have had mine installed for 5 years with no problems. If I remember correctly there is no drilling of the hood required to install.

    Back with the wood. Now I need to unload it and take a few pics. The wood is a little pricey at $100 but it is seasoned. The wood is sold by the bin not by the cord or half cord. It looks like it might be close to a third of a cord.

    Seasoned wood around here is going for $300+ a cord. Unseasond for $225+ a cord.

    :cool: Thanks Tom! At $40, as long as it checks out live, I can't see going wrong there. I appreciate it buddy. :)

    Now that wood is getting a little pricey, but I'm sure it's worth it. I sometimes wish we had a real fireplace, but up here they won't pass for 5-star energy rating ... that becomes an issue when the sub-zero spells come up. So we have a gas fireplace. Not as authentic, but does the trick. ;)

    When the wife tells you to get firewood, this morning, you just do it. I had planned on doing this today from yesterday just not from the source I used today. And as we all know if the wife is not happy! ;)
