I sanded my saggy inner fender and shot it today. Also bought a big 27r battery for Precious.

It is great thread and John is a man of remarkable lucidity and talent whose heart and head are in the right places. I have picked up at least two techniques which I frequently use, there. From him Hi, John. Hope you don't mind me talking like the three of us are having a beer in adjacent chairs for a sec. On second thought, I want spiked punch please.

I suppose I am once again guilty of speaking in parables. Pugsy hates that. Threads are good for fellowship. Take that at face value, OK? The above paragraph, too.

Any time I soak in a few pages, me being who I am, I get turned off by what to me approaches a sickening level of praise. Things men don't normally say to other men get said like its a place to worship him. I guess its the idol thing, I don't know. But prior to HRF, my car fix followers would heap it on so thick I'd want to puke. I just don't do well with praise but John is way more graceful than I am about that stuff. And this ain't no jab, but you've just given an example. SPI Barry would probably know what I mean, he gets megatons of praise and has the poise to accept it. I keep folks at arm's length by leaning on them because theres nobody at home to lean on. So, John's thread is like hallowed ground to me. I dare not rattle his cage. Might really alienate myself from the group with that explanation, but my sentence means half hallowed ground and half oversweet barf bag. I am willing to stand and take punishment if I crossed a line. But I don't think anybody will get mad at me for voicing the observation. It may indeed be the best thread ever, I can neither confirm or deny that. I really dig the car and am blown away by the man's skill set. And he is a prince of a guy. Thats all.

I'm certain she knew for many years, John. Cherish the memories and pictures and know that somewhere in there, she still loves you.

The missing R... bwahaha! Thats the bastard spirit.

Nobody gonna bust yer chops over payin for priming the new stuff, Brian. I won't say the fru word because hey when you run out of rest, you are done for. You been going at it hard and you keeling over right now is not an option. Another good call. You got more going than I could handle.

I needed to see my folks today, they have it a bit rough at the moment so I went over and we jawed and all perked up a smidge. We all have reasons to be scared about heavy stuff, all just life and family though. As a side note, words were said not unlike words heard before, that give hope to a 69 Camino thats in the cousin family falling into my hands for a song some distant day. And, the last couple weeks as the GTP nears 275K miles it is starting to go downhill pretty quick. Things ain't no better but car touching activity looms in my future.

Aw yea. That ought to yank. Even if A man huffs the Coyote I'd bet on thevelle. If he does get a blower, I still might. But only before he gets the hang of it.

Matt, I agree on it all being worth it. We have both worked our butts off here and turned a young, but decaying house into a very nice home and a piece of land full of common, but not desirable, trees into our personal park.

Today, I walked by the first Autumn Blaze Maple we planted in 2003 and got emotional. I remember planting it like it was last week. We bought on the back row of a nursery, where they had given up on it and sold it to us for $15. It was a 3 ft tall twig. It was held up in it's pot by a bamboo stick that was the same size as the tree. We gave it a home, watered and tended to it and now, it's the most beautiful tree in the yard. 35 ft tall and 35 feet wide. DAMN, I wish I could take it with...



Hey, hey....it's after Wednesday night. Update?
