I hear this. Literally, its the same all over. Storage places... lets not start on those. Possible necessary evil, look into it or lean on friends with room. Scattered posessions is uncomfortable to think about. I say lets work the pirate gag for all it is worth...

A sea captain walks into a bar. Has a great big old ship's wooden steering wheel, or helm or whatever its called... "on" his front somehow. Like its spinning on a groin "peg' or something. So nobody really wants to look down to see wtf. The helm in front of his face didn't make the seasoned bartender flinch when he walked up though. He serves the Captain a couple drinks first, over normal conversation while trying not to notice him steering this wheel now and again. Curiosity prevails and the server tactfully inquires " So hey, um whats with this like steering wheel thing, is that on your belt, or..."?

"OH, that? Yarrr, narrr." interrupts the Cap'n... "T'is driving me nuts!"

Right now, it's all a lot of work, but we are getting used to the idea of the new place being our home. Our son and his girlfriend came over today and helped load up a trailer full of bulky, heavy stuff. He then drove the '38 over there for me and helped unload it all. The '38 is in it's new shed now.




Very nice place,,,it wont take long to make it Home instead of a new house,

I was trying to figure out why I liked the house from the front so much, then it dawned on me that the coloring is real similar to my place. A little greener on the shutters and door and with brick rather than wood. Just how it has always been, I don't know if you like the accent color or what but using one does snazz a place up a smidge, IMHO.

Nifty mower inheritance, you could sure do worse. Is it gonna hunt?

Is she all smiles, about being at the new place?

I have a buyer for the Gran Sport, I may just go there and get the stuff out of it and hand him the title.

See now, how I do? The thing I ask about is the gut ripper.

My thoughts... you were a tad nervy about keeping the GS safely stashed even when you lived there, and you didn't drive it much because it is valuable. What are the odds you would use it more there?

Heres what I might do in your situation. Split the GS cash, half to V8 the truck and half to get something you can knock on with no worries for a spell.

When my folks moved 400 miles, my son duty was completing the car logistics. I was young so grabbed a friend and off we went. Camped out halfway with a 67 Imp and 68 Mustang, both gold. It was an adventure.

Knock back the stress every chance you get. Settle in at your pace and allow drama mode to fade.

May have to change CURSE's name.......she's running really nicely these days.
Call it BLESS.

Hope good times were had by all.

By going back to it, you've earned a fresh edit for the delirious project if / when you want one. Consider yourself blessed since I stopped prodding you about bumpers and grilles.

I have half a mind to make pics of everyone else's rides, but rolling on 24"s, yo.

I may try to talk my friend, that is storing my '70 Chevelle, into letting me keep the second lift at his place until I can get a building up.

Yup, we bought her Christmas tree too, as it is too tall for her new condo.



I took this pic to sell the snow thrower, but that is the lawn tractor I bought with the house. Nice unit, but a pain in the butt to get the lift arms on the mower deck. It is hydraulic and the book is as clear as mud on how to get them aligned. I eventually did and used it to mow the back lot at the building location.

496CHEVY3100 If I had to use a snow blower much,,i would put an enclosure on it like I have on my golf cart and run some heat off the engine back to the cabin,,,i bought mine at sears,i think around $150 ,It has lasted 6 years so far,,

I keep mine rolled up if not raining or cold..makes it eaiser to get in without cover rubbing my back.
