I'm sorry Rip, I can't be happy for you, you piss me off getting that shop, JERK!

I got my right running board apron fit and basically finished. I need to drill out some holes so the bolts will go through but it's looking good!

Brian,

I am sorry you are so jealous. I am jealous of the progress you are making on your truck. At least you get to work on your truck. I am still back a couple of months on my shop.. Brian you are our inspiration for your 5 minutes a day. Your truck is looking awesome and I like the fit of the running boards and cab.. So I will let you think of large shops and dream. I just wanted to add this remember Brian, "Mine is much bigger than yours" Muhahahahaha.

A new beginning for me today, too. About to lay first hands on something newer now. But not too new.

I wish there could be a safari between elephant feasts.

Now for a new ending-

Marsha walked around a bit, going OK with her. Other one was at a point of docs not being able to do more for for her lung cancer and was waiting for the ambulance to ride home in with her husband this morning and she just flew away. What a sweet woman. School teacher. Little younger'n me.

Theres that and by no means should you let it drag down the "Ha!" vibe. These are not close ones but loved ones and I am mourning but not moping. It is good to hear news of solid healing progress.Tubes are coming out left and right.

Living on nothing but clear fluids today. Surgery scheduled for 6:30 AM tomorrow to fix my prolapsed ostomy, so that I can go back to using "normal" ostomy appliances. For the past few months I have had to wear huge custom made ones to contain the 9 inch long prolapse (plus the output from it all)

Have to take purgative solution at 5 PM and again at 10. That stuff is VILE!

However, have been cancer free since 2003 so its worth the hassle.

I know I wish I had held out for a two car garage. Bodyworked my 69 in there but one is enough of that!

Well, it's happening. I talked with Terry this morning in VA and reserved an enclosed trailer to rent for Saturday pickup and will leave here early Sunday morning. The Chevelle will be in his hands Monday morning...
The excitement for getting this car to a better finish level and then assembled this summer is building again.

This is what I got done tonight. I have been wanting a patio table since we got here, been looking but with winter as it is here stores don't have stuff like this out until the weather starts getting better. I have been stopping by the Fred Myer every few days on the way home from work waiting for them to get it out, whamo, tonight it was there! Went and got the wife came back, and we bought a set, right on!

I had to put the table together, so that was my "five minutes" tonight.

Brian

Congratulations Brian! That is a good looking patio set. You will get a lot of use out of it in summer. A good size BBQ and you can enjoy steak and wine on many evenings! If you can , get the BBQ set up on Natural gas. Running out of propane is a real PITA when steaks are only half done. Thanks for the prayers.
Surgery always scares me.
(Why do they say doctors are "practicing"? I want one who knows what he/she is doing!) (my surgeon tomorrow is a woman)
