Did you get time to work on your Grab Handle Brian?
My wife's a nurse 30yrs, it takes a special kind of women to be an angle of mercy and putting their needs last just comes naturally to them,it drives me crazy some times but its something god installed in them and wont come undone...I've tried...Our wives sound a lot alike....
I've got to be careful with this bag ,it takes some getting used too ..last week when I was doing all that metal work I put a pin hole in it with a piece of steel.I'll have to make something with an old leather coat to cover it because I'll be doing a ton of welding and That would be a disgusting disaster if I burned a hole in it...At least it dosen't get in the way when I'm driving the old gal...I'll be driving this car long before my bag is off...

LOL. Yes, caution would be appropriate with the bag. For your sake as well as everyone else's. Our wives do sound a lot alike. Barb worked for Hospice for years. She just felt that was what the Lord called her to do. I know what you mean about a giving spirit. We are blessed to have them.

There are few that give more than the nurse, they are some special people that is for sure. You are blessed to have some one like her in your corner.

Nursing is a tough job. My first wife and mother of my kids is a nurse but she is cold to the bone. Her personality didn't let death become an issue but created problems elsewhere. I would not want her taking care of me.
My current wife on the other hand, I'm blessed to have. She would make an awesome care giver if she didn't have such a weak stomach.
I've been building this rambler for 8 years now, spend a ton of time in the garage,and she has not said a negative thing about it..Ever.
If your lucky enough to have a great partner you are truly blessed.

Ed

LOL. you really crack me up John ,Thats the first thing I did this morning then I washed them swept the floors mopped the kitchen, most of the stuff I know she does on Sunday.I told her shes not to lift a finger today and if something needs to be done tell me and I'll do it..Right now shes out in the back yard playing with our grand daughter enjoying a beautiful day.I made breakfast and we all eat outside. It wouldn't have been possible if I hadnt hired two kids on summer vacation to spend a week cleaning up my mess piles of 2x4s, old car parts,a tree that blew down,and weeds 4" high. they did a heck of a job and she did complain about paying them 200.00 but it was well worth it looking out there and watching them having so much fun....Well I got a toilet and shower to clean so I'll catch ya'll later...
.I think I'm gonna git me some tonight,see just came up behind me and gave me a big hug and said thank you so much.....Yeppie

Just back from church. It is good to hear about the good things in life. I love the old cars but they are kind of like money. You certainly enjoy them if you are well and happy but neither one will make you happy if you aren't. Hope everyone has a great day. Going to finish my Rumble seat mount and start marking some foam. May start a thread in the interiors forum and pick DanTwoLakes mind if I have questions.

Oh my God what a day! Up at six to be at Steve's house at 7:00. Pushed him around the Goodguys for five hours, then to my wife's friends house for a reunion of her elementary school friends (Catholic school) then to a birthday party for a nephew. Last night didn't get home until 10:30 from a birthday party 30 miles away for one of my boss's. Whew, I am ready for bed.

But I have to tell you getting there early really paid off, we got PRIMO parking.

But DAMN I had a good time today with Steve. He was so friggin jazzed, he was blown away riding in the Rambler. And you know what, there is no friggin way he could have gotten in that car without that grab handle! I don't think so at least, holy crap that man has it hard. It was VERY difficult getting him in that car! VERY difficult. But he was so thrilled, it made up for it. And the guy from the Goodguys came out and shot photos of him and is going to put him in the Gazette for sure! Super nice guy, and after we parted I was talking to Steve about him and he says "Yeah I know who he is because I read his column in the Gazette"! Steve REALLY is a what personifies what a Goodguy IS. He lives and breathes these cars shows!

Anyway, we had such a good time, it was one of the best Goodguys events ever for me personally because Steve told me it was for him.

Brian

Glad to get your post. Now I can go to bed. Steve is lucky to have a friend like you. Glad you guys had a good day. I will be looking for you all in the Gazette.
