I love hunting sage rats, but unfortunately it's a long drive to get to good shooting, so I don't get to do it as often as I want to!

Some people call the sage rats in Oregon prairie dogs, but sage rats are a lot smaller.

I looked it up. Be careful out there!!! {:-(

Can we say HOT ROD? That thing looks awesome!

I have been working a ton of hours and just don't feel like getting out there but forced myself, even to just figure out where the horns go, no kidding that is all I was going to do. But you know how it is, not a bunch got done but a half hour or so and my instrument cluster plastic got polished along with the horns getting figured out. I need to sand blast them and paint them. I just can't do a quickie on them, just can't force my self to, I need to sand blast them and do it right.

So far, one 'honey do' - major necessity - fix the operating mechanism on the family room Lazy-Boy so it wouldn't lock part way down when releasing the foot rest. Ahhhhhhh, works!!

Now - off to the car to see if I can get the tunes system to work again.

It sure did! I retired a little over a year ago, and since then it's a lot easier to spend a day in the garage on the hotrod. In fact it drives me crazy when I can't be out there at least a couple hours!

Absolutely! I tried way back when to train the kids to eat grass, that didn't work. Now they're gone and although my wife is really frugal, those "neccessities" still eat up the dollars, etc. No rich relatives, or friends, or generous enemies so I guess I'm just stuck with the working bit. (at least for a while longer). Yesterday evening I had to make some brackets for someone else's project at work. How much of an insult is that! Not even my own stuff! Hopefully get back to it tonight. Bob
