I just had a fender tearing on the tow dolly,thats all but it fell off somewhere right after I posted I was at the mcdonalds having some coffee outside waiting for it too get light out when It and the copart to open when I looked, it was gone along with the tail light. I found a magnetic set of tail lights at wallmart and stuck them on The girls there were very pleasent and at the wally world Mcdonalds the mexican girl was super nice with a big smile and actually was so nice she made me forget all the other rude people in GrandPrierie texas and made me smile for the first time ...but man you say thankyou and they just look at you, turn aroun and walk away after about a dozen times of this I couldn't wait to get the heck out of texas.and back to god ole Ga.I'm not saying all of texas is like this but the next time I get a car there I wont be so shocked......La. was great,we got some fantactic BBQ and the girls were so dang hot and friendly and all smiles .Great place ,The BBQ sauce was so good I bought two qts to bring home...and I thought Sconyers, around the corner from my house in Ga. was the best so did my uncle who was with me from Fla...we both were raving about this La.BBQ sauce...he's a.... frugle SOB so I bought a qt for him too ...Sconyers in augusta Ga. is pretty famous too...They deliver to the White house.....Pictures of Clinton and other cabinette members on walls and full of other famous people too, so the BBQ place in La.has some pretty stiff competion I think the name was "the saloon" or something...were in Jackson Mississippi right now ....what a story this ones gonna be but it'll have to wait' its 1:45am and I beat to death so its bedtime...

I have an old wooden box wall phone here that I took out of an apartment years ago when I was still working for a living. It has no dial at all, and all calls went through a switchboard back when it was active. I looked it over, and figured it could still be used for answering a phone call, just not making one. Your phone might be the same thing, if the line wont support a dial phone. May still be used to answer calls.

notice the picture ,the sealant was used on the ends instead of the end seal which usually leak ,and none was used around the ports ,just in the centers to hold the gasket in place and left to dry, when the intake was installed it spread after it was torqued down I always use black sensor safe, but I was out ,,This is one of those shoulg have known better should have waited ,deals ,the sealer was all I had and it was late ,( no excuse )

In reality i'll bet you have little control about what is on the refrigerator door.

I know it is not in my area of responsibility or authority.

ogre why all the plywood? sheetrock and skimcoat for that plaster look

i have a turn of the century home
when i added a bathroom in an upstairs dormer i used a closet and part of another bedroom for the space
i made a couple arches to cover up ceiling height differences
this arch might work better in your pass thru than a half circle

this is one of the oem arches from my living room into the dining/kitchen

MARTINSR I could just clean it up some and not be so crazy with it. I am going to have some serious realignment of photos as it is being where the new path way is use to have about 25 of my most cherished vacation photos.
