    On the off season you can go around filling everyone's water softeners up :)

    Or scrape the rust off the bed and bumper of your truck. I'm glad I don't need that contraption. ;)

    I have my trucks oiled to slow it down. They salt the roads here so it is inevitable here

    I surprised my sister this morning when i pulled down her childhood bike thats been hanging in my parent's garage rafters for the last 46 years. A 24 inch 1965 Montgomery Wards Hawthorne she got new on her birthday. I've been searching for and holding the parts to make it a fully equipped model , the hot pink color on the rack in the pic. is the OG color hers was , I remember i was 8 or 9 when she spray bombed it the opaque pink it is now , It's going back to it's original color.
    I gave it to her with all the upgrade parts and to see if she wanted to keep the front rack on or go with the tank with the headlight or even leaving the front rack and using the lesser upgrade tank without the headlight { I got both tanks just in case } I'm glad she chose the lit tank with horn. I still need a nice set of 24 inch fenders with braces but i'm going to send everything else out thats going to chrome and hope I can find the fenders and get it finished by the end of August for her 59th birthday

    My 20$ goodwill find turned out to be a Traditions Napoleon III .69-cal. black powder cannon. It is for display or shooting so I may just have to try that once or twice.

    I was handed Divorce papers for Christmas if that counts. I got news of it from an empty house and a text message.
    Probably one of the best gifts I've ever gotten.
    So now I have to sell my house and I'm moving to Colorado.
    Maybe I'll take up Smoking the green stuff :Dand forget all about this crap........LOL

    Wow. While it's likely good thing it's over if she's that rotten, it still sucks, especially at Christmas. Best wishes for a smooth transition sir.
