    MY 51 WON'T CRANK VERY FAST

    I like to get rods resized so they all match. Maybe it's just me.. Well, me and my big mouth. You weren't supposed to figure that out!! 😉
  2. That''s a beautiful view.. I agree the story seemed hokey. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!!

    MY 51 WON'T CRANK VERY FAST

    I hope there's a pool on how long that's gonna last..
  4. Come on, PA; that's a nice Plymouth. Now run up to Claxton and pick up a fruitcake or start deep frying a turkey or something!! It's the holidays, after all!! 😁

    Got a non vehicle hobby? Like knitting?

    I play guitar some and repair and build tube guitar amps occasionally, mostly in the winter months. Mostly I like rebuilding motorcycles but that's more obsession than hobby. So nope, no hobbies.

    Those that do interiors

    I have upholstery done by a local fellow. I've watched him work and he can get more done in fifteen minutes than I could do in a week. Plus he can sew a straight line!! My wife works for an interior design company that makes ridiculously expensive custom drapes and bedspreads. The company's in the process of replacing some of their equipment. I don't know the manufacturer's name but they're expensive enough they sent installers from Europe.. What a world...

    Need Ideas for Converting Coins into Paper Money

    I rarely carry cash unless I know I'm going to need it, usually only for swap meet or auction purchases. My OL picks up the groceries and whatever clothes I need. She doesn't mind shopping and says picking up jeans and boots for me is easy!! We only go out to eat when there's company around. Since my lil bro retired he's been driving down from Minneapolis every couple of months and I always try to stick him with the check. 😉

    Bought a new gadget I hopefully won't have to use.

    I have a similar unit I bought on the recommendation of someone on here. It was on sale at Amazon at the time. I've used it a couple of times on my P-15 which has been converted to 12 volt and numerous times on other vehicles. Really handy to have around.

    True to its nickname.....Doggie Dish.

    Kinda odd how something like this can bring back memories.. On a long two-wheeled weekend many years ago a riding buddy and aspiring chef raided a freezer some trusting soul had on his carport and came away with some frozen burger patties. Another stop to liberate a hubcap and he now had a skillet! Nothing tastes quite like a burger with a little wheel bearing grease.. 🙂 I lost track of that old friend in the early '80s after he married a woman who shut the door on his old life. A month or so ago I learned he had just passed away from complications from diabetes. Speaking with his brother at the funeral I learned that my old friend had lost a leg to diabetes about fifteen years ago. According to his monitor he hadn't checked his blood sugar level for several months prior to his death. At his last check it had been over 300. Seems like he'd just given up the struggle. He was one of the most fearless motorcycle riders I've ever known. In the early '70s he rode a Honda 450 black bomber with Z bars, laid back neck, slugs in the fork tubes. Wish I had pics. It was a beast!!
