    Looks nice Guardrail. You've really whipped that Puppy into shape. The black wheels go great with the black wheel arch trim and the blacked out windows.

    Me?

    I'm back home after another 7,200 mile tour of our wonderful nation. Started in Arlington, WA on October, 25, went to the World's Largest Building and picked up a load of empty oversize tooling and headed for Stuart, Florida. After unloading there I went to Miami to pick up some tooling, then back to Stuart to grab some wing parts, then up to North Charleston and swapped out for another oversize load with a horizontal stabilizer headed back to the World's Largest Building to ditch the horizontal stabilizer.

    That was yesterday, and today I am having some coffee and chillin'.

    I'm woking on a picture series, and when I get it done I'll post it here. Some o you may ind i quite interesting.

    Happy Saturday!

    My day startng from midnight.

    0030: wake up, cook myself up some lunch and make a pot of coffee. Leave home after 3 cups (I was tired).

    0200: arrive at work to start my shift. Another FUBAR day. I was an hour and a half late on my second dispatch, and the truck broke down on the way to the station. 3 hrs late getting the mail to the station, 2 hrs overtime.

    1230: off work, stop at CVS to get prescription for step-daughter, but the CVS was closed as it was robbed that night. Went to another CVS on the other side of town.

    Back home by 1430. Did 2 loads of laundry, cleaned house.

    Now I'm cooking dinner for the fam, and afterwords goin out for a 2 mile jog before calling it a day.

    Thanks. I've got some slight rubbing issues on the old man running boards, but I bought some pan head bolts that should take care of it. I have a few more cheap alterations and maintenance items I need to do and she'll be ready for anything I can throw at her.

    I worked most of yesterday picking up leaves with my Kubota tractor and Cyclone Rake yard vacuum. Those are 2 tremendous machines that make the job a real pleasure.
    I am also thankful that after going thru cancer treatments and 3 surgeries that I can still maintain my property---God has been so good to me:)

    That is good news Randy. The cancer treatments and surgeries sound like they are awful, like the cure is worse than the disease.

    I had word from my mom last week that she was going in for a lumpectomy, and after a few days of recovery headed South for the winter, where she will begin radiation treatments. I just don't get why the doctors immediately begin the radiation therapy before the biopsy is done. As I understand it even if the tissues that are removed are benign they still do the radiation.

    Why?

    The radiation treatments can really beat a person down, and when you are nearing 80, it is a big deal.

    I went to a car show with my daughter yesterday in Murrietta Ca. Great old muscle cars and hot rods.
    Oh and even a few great trucks like this first gen Bronco. I thought 4ramsey would like it. It even won an award.
    Hmm not the greatest pictures. Dang sun!!

    My daughter told me that her favorite picture of this Bronco was the top one. I asked her why and she said "you don't see it?" I said no. She told me that our shadows are in the picture. Me holding the camera with one hand and holding her hand with my other.
    All together now.......aaaawwwww
