MARTINSR Nothing exciting, no photos. But I got my running board apron I have been working on about finished up. Got some cracks welded. First time I have fired up my torch since I moved. Got a little shrinking and stretching done (don't you always go to far and have to go backwards? LOL) and will get it finished up tomorrow I think.

Complications of course could be forthcoming but prognosis sounds encouraging.

So good to hear! It's amazing what they can do today!

My cousin had her lungs out today. Out in CA. They removed a dozen clots then reinstalled. Might be a fancy crow foot required for that, too. They saw ribs out back. Holy... ... Father ,watch over her. Be in coma couple days. Its a second cousin thats still fighting lung cancer, this is a regular cousin. Both pretty ladies. Lookers often have a rougher go at life. Anyway, no expressions of sympathy required but all thoughts get heard where it counts. I had just never heard of that kind of operation. It may give her back life without the 02 tank and that'll be better.
Prayers going her way!

idrivejunk Cuzette was druggy but awake and sitting up breathing fine with tube just out and no bottle this afternoon. IF no complications, out of ICU Friday and maybe speaking as soon as tomorrow. A mazing. It occurred to me both my sick she-kins have good husbands named Matt. I'll call that a reason to not regret single life.

Hey so uh, crazy thought here um...

Heard an FWD GP vid where dude left cat and resonator intact but straight piped where mufflers were, right behind the bumper. Theres a single exhaust down the center with a Y under the rear suspension and flared tips in cutouts. Stock.

You guys see any issue with me trying straight pipe just on one side? Dude said drone is present but you know, only at like 35-40. Quiet on hwy. So for the GT as some form of gratifying driving spice, I thought this. It has the sharp, raspy almost rattly V6 sound that I can dig and might be a tad louder than the blown one already, out the back. Theorize with me which one to do for least driver drone. Do I want the louder outlet on my side or the other?

GTP strategies remain under investigation at HQ. That is all.

Hot damn, I know the feeling when the wood pile appears...

I see you had to erect a fence to keep people from trespassing on your private property and hurting themselves or stealing YOUR property. What the hell happened to this country that it is our responsibility to protect idiots and azzhats from themselves...we are denying Darwinism...

Prayer is good too, just gotta be careful who to.

They said they didn't find or get as many as they would have liked but it was time to close and an even dozen is a stopping point I reckon. I believe they use stints there, too. Freak-a-zoid but yes... her lungs are a direct fit. Her poor husband too, way out there alone with nothing but worry. He races a Datsun 510 coupe on a track up by Wichita.

Thank you. Just think mend and point it west.

In my world, you just doomed yourself, asking for something to work right...

Damn looks like you might get a snow day tomorrow/next day. Just saw a national weather map and MN stands out as the only state out of more than a dozen to NOT get hit by the storm coming.

I probably just caused the storm to shift north now too...

Grind it and give it to Life cereal.

Then um,... wait... and it will eventually drive away.
