  1. Yeah, I've restrained myself to not mow before 8:30 am. Even at that time, I'm concerned some neighbor will gripe. But, I can't really do it until about 9 anyway, to allow the morning dew to evaporate somewhat.
  2. When I was in pilot school in Enid, Oklahoma, all of us student pilots had white salt rings on the backs of our flightsuits from sweating so much. It would hit 135 degrees, and higher, regularly on the flight tarmac. There were salt tablet dispensers everywhere. We were young, and just kept on truckin'. 😁
  3. Reminds me of the song by Johnny Cash: One Piece At A Time
  4. Was mowing the lawn yesterday, temps in the upper 90's, and humidity in the 90's as well, and for the first time in my life, I felt woozy and had to sit down immediately for fear of falling over. Getting old isn't for sissies, as they say. 😁
  5. Yah, another one I didn't know about was that Plymouth made a pick up truck. I saw two side by side in a farmer's field, maybe 15 years ago, both were 1939 models I believe. I was soooo tempted to park my car, and approach the farmer to ask about buying one, but the guard dogs made me apprehensive as well as having to face my wife's indignation over yet another, useless, "old car", that just gets in her way. LOL 😁
  6. Interesting, I didn't know DeSoto made a pickup. πŸ‘
  7. We've been together over 35 years; at first, she was pretty supportive, going to shows & cruises, and supportive of my growing collection of "old" cars, and never complaining about her car being outdoors, giving up space for the "old cars". But, after about 20 or 25 years, her interest waned in all things "old cars". Although she doesn't complain about the "old cars" around the ole homestead, she doesn't care to ride in them anymore. But, she does still give moral support for whatever I want to do w/them. πŸ‘
  8. He makes it look soooo easy. πŸ‘
  9. Welcome to the ForumπŸ‘ Based on the picture of the Chebby, you really know what you're doing. Nice looking truck. For the 'new' Dodge, I really like that Patina its got. Too bad you can't keep it like that. Sure would make it distinctive. Please keep the pix coming; we luv pix. 😁
  10. Excellent looking bed, boards, and metal strips. You do very good work. πŸ‘
  11. Back in the early 70's, I went into a barber shop that happened to have a female barber. Was quite novel, at the time. Today, I don't think I can find any male barbers in this area. I've seen females drive huge dump trucks, operate heavy equipment, climb poles for communication equipment, run welders, etc. When a LEO gets out of the police car, and she is only 5 foot 2 inches, I wonder if she can handle a large unruly character, but, I guess she can, or she wouldn't have the job. A gun probably helps her. There is a female usher at church; that always is noticeable when she comes around w/the collection basket. My lawyer is female, so are a couple of my doctors and my dentist. Haven't seen a female plumber yet, but, I guess I shouldn't be too surprised when one finally shows up. πŸ‘
  12. In one of my rental units the tub had a few rust marks, and I researched which repair company in the area was a good match for what I needed. I didn't want a fitted unit that was placed over the existing tub, but what I thought was a better approach was to repair the rust spots. A company came in, did the repair, which included scraping off the old surface, treating it, laying in new material, painting, etc. I didn't stick around to watch. The technician had on a moon suit, including breathing mask, and a huge industrial fan to blow out the fumes. It took him all day. I think the bill was $700.00. It looks like a brand new tub now. Its been only a couple of months, so, I don't know how it'll hold up. The tenant loves it. For another rental unit, there was a crack in the fiberglass tub, and that one was repaired with a rubber/sealant type coating. It cracked again w/in a few weeks. It was repaired again a few months ago, and so far has held up. FYI. πŸ‘
  13. Hey, thanks for the update. Now we know. When you do finally get "settled", if there really is such a thing, please continue w/the pix & updates. Best of luckπŸ‘
  14. I just came across this thread, and read from beginning to end. Great story, and love the pictures. Hopefully, we'll get to see an update now, and more pictures. πŸ‘
  15. What a delightful video. Enjoyed every minute of it. πŸ‘
