Oh, and you'll need to buy a winter jacket... We were 11 yesterday morning in MN.
It is mind blowing the different in house prices! I just went for a walk, this neighborhood is like friggin Beverly hills and there was a house, three car garage, tri-level about 3000 sq feet for sale in this amazing neighborhood for about two thirds of my 1100 square foot 2 bd 1 bath house. It's mind blowing the difference. And yes I can could get something out in the country you describe for LESS than my house! It's crazy!

Jobs, there are always jobs honestly. Around here from what I understand it's easy, I could go many different places too. I have done everything in the auto industry, the only thing I could never do is sell cars, outside of that, I have many places I could get a job for sure.

Fried two turkeys this morning, and then a great Thanksgiving lunch with family. Four generations represented in the house today, with the oldest being 95.

What if you could have your own private Idaho? The B-52s did.

Now that we are all well fed and minds have drifted from work, here is some work junk from yesterday...

While I have the front trunk gutter hacked out of the 59 Pont job, I figured I had better try to take advantage of the access to put in more effort straightening the wicked warpage encountered when welding the window bed repair just ahead of it. Gave that half a day and it was tough. Once again the Spitznagel Maxi puller pulled me out of the grease. Me piling tools all over it hasn't helped but whew it was a booger. Came away with a couple small injuries from when the stud tip pulls loose but that's just part of it.

What I was contemplating in my last pic post was how to stack and weld my patches. The angle the rubber sticks up at matters, and I want it consistent. Adding an extra layer by attaching both patches to the old flange changes that slightly. I still have not welded (want to re-check trunk lid fit) but for now decided to lay the new on top of the old bottom flange and weld from the top, in the channel. Just always looking for a better way. Here is pics-



Anybody remember the Bronco? It, and the Trans Am, and the Beetle are all in primer phase now. The mud men are on my heels.

I'm roasting our turkey as I type. Apple and Orange stuffing (neither of us like traditional stuffing), wild rice with sausage and mushrooms, mashed potatoes with Parmesan cheese and traditional gravy and lightly steamed and sauteed green beans with onions, mushroom, and hot Italian Sausage. I'm sniffing and the dogs are also!

I'm still stuffed to the gills, and reading that made me hungry again... That sounds really good! Is the stuffing a super secret family recipe, or can you share?

It's pretty easy, I've been messing with it for about 30 years now. I use it as a side dish buy it started out as a stuffing. If you do use some of ias a stuffing then premake it before putting it in the bird but make enough for a side dish.
Proportions are as you like.

Bumper's Ugly Rice


3/4 c wild rice
2c long grain rice
3 (14oz) can chicken broth
Sage
pepper
Cajun Salt

Cook in rice cooker.

in saute' pan

large diced onion
1 1/2 sliced mushrooms Or mixed verity of rooms
1/2 lb Hot Italian Sausage broken up
1/2 stick butter

Melt butter then add onions first
start cooking then add mushrooms
cook them half way then add sausagecook till browed.

Add it together with cooked rice in oven proof bowl.
Taste for seasonings.

If you want to use it as stuffing nows the time to do so. The rest goes intpre eted oven 30 degesth afew pats of butter on top Shake more sage on top and bake for 20 min.
Take it out and stir.

Pretty good stuff.

Took the dining room table out to the garage. The guy that made it glued the breadboard ends tight but did not glue the long boards together at all.
Exactly backwards.

Sanded off most of the white paint from the bottom. Not too concerned about that.

Color was way too dark also, so it's time for a total rebuild. Maybe an LS1 while I'm at it.....

Run the boards thru? Surely, you jest....the tops are wavy as all get out now. Perfect.

I've been hand planing the edges for glue up this morning, and it's going very well.

I'm certain it will be a work of art when you are done, but a wavy top would send my CDO off the charts...

The wavy might look better,,we bought an old cotton mill in N.Carolina to get the distressed wood to go in a house (Mansion ),,he did not want any nail holes filled or any knots cut out just a light sanding and a Satin clear urethane,,he even hired 20 men to chip the brick with chipping hammers for the out side,,the house was Unbelieavable when finished. 33,500 sq ft.
