I completely understand John, for some reason I couldn't get a bunch done today either...Even Chuck Connors couldn't motivate me. Probably only John would understand that...LOL

Hey, it's Saturday. You deserve to rest up after working hard all week at being retired.....

Now that I'm not sitting on my butt, steerin' an gearin' a truck for 10 hours a day, my life is busier with more physical tasks and I'm more tired as a "retiree' than I was working....

Well guys, being the kindly old grandfatherly type that Josh Lizer says I am, I do hope I get enough energy to finish this thing befor I die.

played basketball today and for a while been feeling old. I've been getting better with my handles but it hasn't resulted in more points. It has resulted in less turnovers and more assists, but still playing pretty good. Then the trees left and I took over the gym. I guess I haven't been giving credit enough to how the competition at the gym got a lot better. I'm hearing the Roseville 24 hr has been dead so we're getting those players at my gym now. A lot of college players, highschool, and a few d leaguers. High intense games and the guys that used to come that can't hang seem to come later now when it dies down-lol. I just go for it and am getting the ball a lot but know my role and have been dishing some pretty impressive passes and getting easy baskets by driving and dishing but haven't been too aggressive trying to score. Lots of fun.

After that I took my daughter to a nice lake and picked wild berries for her. She had a blast. No car stuff on the weekend til I get my car at the shop.

Yes "496CHEVY3100" I do understand. When your a kid...everything is exciting. We didn't have a television at home until I was about 9 years old...my Dad had one at his service station so, in order for my Mom to get a break from my older brother and me, we would spend some quality time with Dad at the B/A station on Sundays...I got to watch the Rifleman...Like I said, it was exciting.

Then I hit my teens, I was invincible, I knew everything, I was so smart...LOL.

Got to my 20's, lots of energy, got married and started a family.

In my 30's, I started to wonder where my money was going but, it's all worth it, I have great kids.

In my 40's, well, it's time to think of College and University so, some sacrifices needed to be made.

Now that I'm in my 50's and being fortunate enough to be able to do what I enjoy, I get up early (between 5 AM and 6 AM) on Saturday mornings and watch re-runs of the Rifleman while I work. Funny how it took 50 years but I've come full circle...most times the old episodes are new again, but, yesterday I remembered every last one. So, that's why Chuck Connors couldn't even motivate me yesterday.

And "BoothBoy", your suggestion would have definitely got me motivated and off my butt...how else could Chuck Connors have so strategically placed that Winchester?...LOL

And Mornin back at ya John, I actually felt guilty about going to the trouble of getting up early yesterday and not getting anything worthwhile or to be more specific, anything done that I promised myself I'd get done. So I tried it again today...So far, it looks like I'm going to get done what I wanted to get done yesterday. Maybe the thought of "Boothboy's" suggestion yesterday etched in my mind was the motivating factor here...LOL.

I love watching the "Andy Griffith Show", "496CHEVY3100", that's another one of those old nostalgic shows that brings back memories of a more simple time. Isn't it amazing how the shows that are now considered Classics still make you smile. I've often wondered why in today's 500 to a 1,000 channel cable TV offerings, I can't find F-Troop on anywhere. With Larry Storch and Forrest Tucker, always conniving with the Hacowie Indians. I remember belly laughing at that show in the 60's.

Well, it's back to work, you never know, "Boothboy" might be watching and packing...LOL

Ray

Second, it is unbelievably expensive regular spool of .024 wire is about 26 dollars. The EZ Grind is about 69 dollars.

I have had several people say they would not use it without a certification, One said it did not like rusty metal. Of course no MIG welder does.

I thought I would do a test. I will butt weld a couple of 2 inch wide strips of 18 ga metal with my regular wire before I take it off the machine and then weld a couple of pieces with the EZ Grind. Then I will bend them back and forth and see how many bends it takes for them to break. See where they break and of course compare grinding.

I will give you guys an update in a few days.

John

I would like that very much ,John I'm sure everyone would like to know about it...
