Congrats Matt.
Nice looking ride.
Cool here today. High in 40's. We are going to the new house on Sunday. Need to find out if a crack in one of the sewer sections is going to be a problem.
Next time you're in the St Louis area maybe we can meet up.

Morning guys...It is COLD this morning. Pretty sure the tomatoes are done after last night. We had a footbaall game last night and it was cold there as well, even in the press box. The announcer, whom I sit next to, brought a small heater, whiuch helped keep the chill off of our feet...sort of.

This morning, we head out to the golf course as the school is hosting the regional cross country meet and we agreed to help out in the chute again. Rosie is making a good breakfast so we can make it through the two races.

Tommy, you could even send some of that rain back here for us too. Good to hear GD is doing better, Gris. As I said in your other post, I really like your 'new' Corvette, Matt.

Guess I 'll start my winterizing as well. ..... Done.


The rainy season is over but apparently the rain hasn't got the notice here. Why isn't it raining where it needs it, like California?

Took out my 911 yesterday and stretched it's legs a little. The speed limit signs were unable to regulate my accelerator pedal, rpm gauge or gear shift. Ran out some old gas and added some new. It's running great. Steering is tight, brakes are solid and ignition is steady. First three gears got a good exercise session.

REALLY LIKE THAT COLOR, MATT.

IT'S A DARK AND GLOOMY MORNING IN THE NATIONS AND COLD BESIDES. THE WORD FOR THE DAY IS "DISMAL"; AT LEAST IT'S NOT RAINING.

I'LL DO SOME OUTDOOR WINTERIZING TODAY, MAYBE CHECK OUT THE FLEA MARKET.

#1 GRANDDAUGHTER IS FEELING MUCH BETTER, GOING CRAZY OVER ISOLATION AND INACTIVITY. SHE IS THE ONLY ONE IN THE FAMILY TO ACTUALLY GET THE KUNG FLU.

Good Morning CGs!

Should be cool here today. We have an appointment at the dealer this morning to go over some numbers. The wife's car is getting a little long in the tooth. The proposed upgrade is a new Honda Passport. She's already driven it so it comes down to the bottom line. We'll see.

RR#2's bff is coming over at 2 and the kids are going to carve pumpkins. I also have to cut the grass (if it's dry enough) and blow out the sprinklers. And change an evap pump on my neighbor's Jetta if there's time. Always something to do.

Yesterday I drove to St Louis and picked up my new car. 2002 C5 convertible. Check out the c5 section for some more pictures.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Late check in here also. Therapy today was nice, rain not so much. Went from almost 80 today to 50 now. Had a quiet day at home
Thank you everyone for the prayers and well wishes for my cousin. I could not talk to her today but was told the vomiting had stopped, she ate great at all meals today and held together when they moved her to the covid wing. Said she’s not showing symptoms so far-good news.
They now have 20 residents and 7 staff infected.

Good Evening CGs!

As you are all aware, I lost my 89 last month. After a short search and a few WTB ads placed on the internet a gentleman on CF reached out to me. As a result I am the proud new owner of this beautiful electron blue metallic 2002 convertible. The previous owner was extremely meticulous and the car is magnificent in person, the pictures don't do it justice. After a 9 hour round trip driving (almost 12 total) it's back home.

The mods include:

Magnusson supercharger (polished and intercooled MP-122)
Stainless headers
Corsa exhaust
Dewitt's radiator and fans
EPS cam
BTR springs
Comp rocker trunions
Upgraded valve train
Tigershark front & rear bumpers
Aftermarket hood
Custom euro lights
Chrome centennial cup rims
Tons of cosmetic upgrades
(More that I'm forgetting)

The car is roughly 600 hp with the upgrades and drives like stock until you get on it. It was built to be a reliable daily driver and it certainly is. Just a hair over 90,000 miles and you'd never know it. I have a few small plans for it so I'll keep everyone posted.

Well it looks like everyone is off and running.
U-man, good luck with the know it all’s.
Gris, before you flatly refuse the shower, find out if it’s open bar.
And once again, Tommy you’ve succinctly stated my attitude toward gender reveal parties. Unless, of course, they have an open bar.
Lastly, Letty, I didn’t catch the issue regarding your cousin, I hope things go well for them.

I hope the day continues well for everyone.

Too many stinkin parties as it is. To me less is more (more time for me). The baby reveal is one party that I'd like to lop off the head of the idiot that came up with that one. Oh look, the blood is red ............ It's a girl. Too early in the day to be speaking of head lopping. Have a nice day everyone. Time is precious and silence is golden.

Good Evening CGs!

Late check in here.

Letty, sorry to hear about your cousin. Hope she pulls through.

Tommy, I agree with you about paying for the convenience of getting it all taken care of.

Mike, congrats on the new house.

Hope everyone had a great day!

We will keep you in our prayers Letty. Tommy, I hear you. As I get older, it just makes sense to pay a little to have some of thise things done for you.

Was just about ready to stain the cabinet doors this afternoon, when I double checked measurements, as the doors looked pretty big....yea, they were. All three doors were 2" too wide.....how the h3ll did I do that? No matter, I had to gix them...or rebuild them....try to cut them down made the most sense. If I fuked them up I'd have to rebuild them anyway, so it was worth the try. An hour and a half later, the doors are glued up again... this time the correct sizes.

Mid afternoon the wind changed direction and it turned cold. 45 for a high tomorrow.....

Very sad news, Letty. Sorry to hear. My thoughts and prayers go out for her.


After doing my due diligence I bought a washer. Came down to GE, Whirlpool or LG. I bought an LG with a 5 year warranty plus delivery and installation. I went to Best Buy to lift the lids and touch the controls. Bought the LG 4.5 size direct drive impeller model. 10 year motor warranty from LG. It had most of the items I wanted. I also wanted reasonably simple. I did not want one to call me on the phone, I didn't want it to turn on lights or any other thing that Alexa the the washers communicate about. Just wash some friggin clothes. After a small contribution to St. Jude it rounded out to $950 for the washer, hoses, free delivery and installation and taxes for the state. The delivery was free if you spent over $399 and the installation was free if you bought the stainless steel hoses for $29.99. I'm getting older, lazier, and more willing to part with some $$ so the young bucks and buckaroos can unbox it, drag it through the door, put the hoses on, plug it in, push the button and tell me it works. I know they say the extended warranty is a waste of money but I'm a gambler. I'll pay $135 for 5 years of trouble free washing. One service call would eat up that warranty money. It would piss me off to no end if I didn't buy the extended warranty and it broke down after say, after 15 months. I would be inconsolable, so the money spent is worth it to me and my peace of mind. I guess they hook a lot of consumers like that.

I was just informed that my cousin in the nursing home has tested positive for the virus. She's almost 85 and I fear for her. She's depressed, lonely and will now face this even more isolted from those who bring her comfort. Please pray for us, for the staff and other residents who are positive as this is considered on an "outbreak" level at this point.
My emotions are many, anger at the staffer who brought it in (Im sure they feel their own guilt), hurt for her, angry at our politicians for isolating them from us to start with , just a whole lot of things at the moment.
Please, just pray. thank you all

Morning guys...it still is morning as I write this. Nice warm day so far. Slept in again, then right out to the shop to work.

Not much new here, so I guess I'd better head back to the shop.

had all this indoctrination to go thru...all these films on sexual harassment and you can't be mean to anybody....I don't think you can even smack someone around anymore if they need it...... I don't get all this new PC stuff....

Hey U-man, this helps me understand what I’m going thru with all the PC junk...

The worst part of the P.C. Crap is the stress it causes. My definition of stress;
The feeling of frustration and anger you experience when you’re not allowed to choke the living chit out of some A-hole that desperately needs it.

HI LETTY---

SUNNY AND MILD IN THE NATIONS, THERE'S A LITTLE BREEZE THAT'S SUPPOSED TO GET RAMBUNKSHIOUS THIS AFTERNOON.

HAD A 0900 DENTIST APPOINTMENT TO GET MY FANGS SCRAPED. BEEN A LONG TIME DUE TO THE KUNG FLU CRAZIES, SO I EXPECTED A ROUGH TIME. DIDN'T HAPPEN :-)

TOOK HARVEY TO THE WRENCHMEISTER FOR A HEADLIGHT REPLACEMENT. HEADLIGHT HAD NOT BEEN DELIVERED; DAVID BROUGHT ME HOME TO FIND THE ELECTRIC CO-OP HAD THE ROAD BLOCKED WORKING ON THE LINES. HAD TO CUT ACROSS COUNTRY TO GET HERE; 4WD COMES IN HANDY SOMETIMES.

Good morning. Surely I can't be the first one in the door? I'm always last to the party.
Beautiful day here although foggy on the drive in, not much work on my desk so hopefully and easy day. Halfway through my physical therapy routine and I'm happy it's working. So nice the last couple of days to be able to get up, walk or move without pain. It's still tender but soooo much better.
Congrats on the house Mr. and Mrs. Capn . I can relate to the new dishwasher. I love ours and the fact it's not named "Letty". Huge plus lol
Have a great day y'all

Congrats Mr and Mrs Capt.Mike. Happy for you both.

Ya, that not being able to smack someone around a little bit has gotten out of hand.

Wash machine took is on it's last leg. It's leaving water on the floor. Not from the hoses. Nothing a good $750 can't resolve. Could go used but no. The last two have only lasted around 7 years each. We do use it almost daily though with the work shirts.

Wow...nice pad Cap..... very cool....congrats...

The new job....finding out they really want me to do work.... damn.... they got me my work truck today...some monster Ford Super Duty 4 x 4 turbo diesel 4 door pick up.... it's huge...I spent 2 hours cleaning it up....its a 17 with 77K on it... I hated it at first but found out the tires had 75 lbs of air in them....took them down to 50 and it got a lot better.... it does get up and go.... it has to weigh 8,000 lbs.....

and no heated seats.....WTF.....I mean really....

Tomorrow we have meetings all day and Friday I go to my location in David City and move into my new sumptuous office that is like a broom closet I'm thinking....

had all this indoctrination to go thru...all these films on sexual harassment and you can't be mean to anybody....I don't think you can even smack someone around anymore if they need it...... I don't get all this new PC stuff....

so that is how its going so far.... thought you should know...

Hey folks, Busy day again....How many aren't for me? Buddy I've been helping with siding called to ask me to help him remove and install new front door. By noon we had it mostly done. A return after lunch finished up the last details.

It was a chilly start, but by noon the sweatshirt came off and was really nice all afternoon, 62 for the high. tomorrow is supposed to be nearly 90...by Sunday morning, 19 for a low and Monday 28 for a high.

Congrats, Mike living out of the fifth wheel had tobe getting a bit old. Letty, don't concern yourself with what the people are thinking/saying, you are protecting your cousins' best interest. Bob,Tommy, I've been addressed as "old guy and old fashioned"...I can't deny the description and the alternative is not too attractive to me...although if my time comes, I'm ready.

I trust everyone had a good day.

Good afternoon everyone. Busy at work today, stressed a bit from work (competitor bashing us issues), and of course, more nursing home issues as of last night. Staff wont' return a call now - off to the Ombudsman again. I'm sure local staff hates me but I will do what I can to make sure they take care of her and not be mean and ugly to her.
headed home straight after work to sit in the chair on the back porch and nothing else. Maybe a ribeye on the grill later.
Regarding age - people are more discretionary with us women. I have still recently been referred to ask "kid" and "youngun" although I'm 52. I feel like I'm 82.
I've been called a lot of things, thus far "old" hasn't been one - except by those constant AARP invites

CORVETTE RACING AT ROAD ATLANTA: SPOILER ALERT

PRESS RELEASE:
 
Garcia, Taylor, Catsburg continue strong season in GTLM championship push

CORVETTE RACING AT ROAD ATLANTA: Runner-Up for No. 3 Corvette
Garcia, Taylor, Catsburg continue strong season in GTLM championship push


BRASELTON, Ga. (Oct. 18, 2020) – Corvette Racing’s Antonio Garcia, Jordan
Taylor and Nicky Catsburg posted a runner-up class finish Saturday in the
10-hour Petit Le Mans at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta. The trio narrowly
missed sending their No. 3 Mobil 1/SiriusXM Chevrolet Corvette C8.R to its
sixth victory of the season in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship’s
GT Le Mans (GTLM) class.


After a wild and crazy afternoon, the No. 3 Corvette team finished just
1.779 seconds from its third straight class victory. The result, though, was
good enough to increase the Drivers’ Championship lead for Garcia, Taylor
and the No. 3 Corvette C8.R team to 28 points with two races to go.
Chevrolet grew its lead in the Manufacturers standings to 16 points.


Oliver Gavin, Tommy Milner and Marcel Fässler placed fourth in class with
the No. 4 Mobil 1/SiriusXM Chevrolet Corvette C8.R. Both of the mid-engine
Corvettes led multiple times on a topsy-turvy day. Gaps between cars in GTLM
rose and fell on a whim in traffic, which wasn’t unexpected around the
challenging and undulating 2.54-mile, 12-turn road course.


Garcia began from the GTLM pole, dropped to fourth at the start but regained
the lead by the time his 94-minute opening run finished, thanks to skillful
driving and great pit work by the No. 3 Corvette crew. The team twice gained
three spots on pit stops in the race. Taylor drove a double-stint and again
pitted from the lead to hand over to Catsburg near the three-and-a-half-hour
mark for his only double stint of the race.


Taylor took back over just past the halfway point and remained in contention
into darkness before Garcia’s final triple stint to close. A full-course
caution period with 11 minutes left gave Garcia – who earlier took advantage
of trouble for Jesse Krohn’s race-leading BMW with 37 minutes remaining to
move into second place – his chance to pounce on Fred Makowiecki’s leading
Porsche.


Unfortunately a final caution period following the restart with five minutes
left meant the race ended under full-course yellow.


Milner drove a triple-stint to start in the No. 4 Corvette and led twice in
his opening run after starting the race fifth in class. Fässler was in next
and kept the car in contention before Gavin got in nearly three hours in.
From that point, the No. 4 Corvette struggled to match the ultimate pace of
the race leaders, although both Milner and Fässler drove strong stints in
the race’s second half to keep the No. 4 Corvette in contention for a podium
finish to the end.


Corvette Racing’s next event is Oct. 31-Nov. 1 at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna
Seca.


ANTONIO GARCIA, NO. 3 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C8.R – SECOND IN
GTLM: "The late yellows may have been the difference. We didn't have the
pace against the 24. I tried very hard in my first stint when I got back in
the car at night. We managed to gap both of the Porsches, and they went on a
different strategy than us. I got held up by the 25 BMW, and that hurt. I
don't know if he didn't know I was there. I had to pit a little sooner than
expected, and from that point we were on the back foot. My middle stint
wasn't as good compared to the 911, and even if I picked up the pace at the
end of the stint then it wasn't enough. I couldn't defend against him when I
came out of the pits on cold tires (with 45 minutes left). Without a yellow,
it would have been a question as to who would make the tires last the
longest. We were both pushing hard. There was a chance for us but it was
another second at Petit Le Mans. Looking back at the season, if this is a
bad result then I will take it! We are in good shape for the championship.
From that standpoint, we can be very happy of the consistency and being able
to fight at every single race. We'll go and try to win the last two and
close it out."


JORDAN TAYLOR, NO. 3 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C8.R – SECOND IN
GTLM: "That was a tough race, but was a good day overall for Corvette
Racing. When you look at the whole day, it was pretty flawless for the No. 3
side – no issues on the track, no issues in the pits, perfect strategy and
perfect in the pits. To come away with P2 is great. It's good for the
points. But you always want to win these big ones when you have the
opportunity. I think if we had gone green at the end then Antonio would have
had something for the 911. It was unfortunate to see it go yellow at the
end, but overall it was a good day."


NICKY CATSBURG, NO. 3 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C8.R – SECOND IN
GTLM: "It was a nice race but very busy. It's cool to be on the podium at
this event with this car, this team and these teammates. Somehow it feels
like we could have gotten a win, but I'm still happy with P2. It's been a
good event for us. The team and drivers did a faultless job. Maybe we didn't
have the pace at the end, but this was still a cool event for us. I had a
moment with one of the Porsches that went too far in my opinion. He was
racing like it was the last lap of the race and was pretty unacceptable. I
think he got a drive-through penalty for it. But other than that I was quite
happy with the double-stint I did and am looking forward to being back in
the Corvette at Sebring."


OLIVER GAVIN, NO. 4 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C8.R – FIFTH IN
GTLM: "This was the most difficult Petit Le Mans that I've ever done. I've
had hurt ribs after an incident biking  earlier this week. I felt good
around Wednesday but it became apparent Thursday that it was going to be a
struggle in the car. I received a number of different treatments trying to
get as comfortable as possible with the goal of doing a stint or two in the
race. It just was too much pain and discomfort in my stint and we elected to
get Marcel back in during the caution. He and Tommy did an amazing job under
the circumstances, especially in a race as unpredictable as Petit Le Mans.
Thanks to them and the team for all the effort and encouragement. We'll try
to get back on the right track at Laguna Seca later this month."


TOMMY MILNER, NO. 4 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C8.R – FIFTH IN
GTLM: "We just weren't good enough today. It was tough and frustrating. At
times the car was good. It looks like we were off a little bit there at the
end pace-wise compared to everyone else. We were hoping for a yellow late
and got it, and thought we could have done something with it. I maybe had an
opportunity or two with the 24 in the first few corners but it would have
probably been more crashing and mayhem; it wasn't worth running somebody off
the road just for a spot. That's not how I like to race. We'll learn what we
can, go to Laguna Seca and try again."


MARCEL FÄSSLER, NO. 4 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C8.R – FIFTH IN
GTLM: "My first run in the race was quite good, but I think I pushed a
little too hard on the tires because they dropped off toward the end. That
meant I struggled with some pace. The middle stint was good, and I was happy
with the balance of the Corvette. The night portion was quite tough because
somehow I couldn't get the front tires to work. It was an issue and I lost a
lot in traffic. We were hoping for an earlier caution to help us out. It was
not easy out there with the traffic. But the Corvette C8.R showed it has
great pace. The pit stops were perfect all day, and the team had a great day
in the championship. I'm looking forward to Sebring and hoping we can have a
better run and be back on the podium in the No. 4 Corvette."

Good Afternoon CGs!

Washed the car yesterday which challenged the rain gods. They responded in appropriate fashion.

A little nicer today, sunny but cool.

Tommy, I wish someone brought me lobster tails.

Marcus, how is the new job?

Bob, obviously he didn't know to address you as "Mister" Old School

Hope everyone has a great day.

I may have posted this before. But it seems as if you have a portion of life where you’re referred to as, “kid, tiger, sport, junior,” you get the idea.
But then it stops.
For about ten minutes.
Suddenly you’re, “ old-fart, old man, etc...”
About three years ago I was walking across the shop at work when a young black man approached me and began to have difficulty asking me something. As I waited the seconds for him to spit it out, he said, “Pardon me um, uhh, ....old school. Can you tell me where...”
It was very obvious he was being as respectful as he’d been taught, but he just didn’t have the vocabulary to address me in the more conventional terms. I answered his questions and we went on our ways.
I’ll probably remember being addressed as, “old school,” for the rest of my life.🙂

In reading this, maybe I should change my handle to,”Old Skool!”

Good afternoon y'all. Sorry for the MIA - we left town Saturday morning headed to the hills, bout 5 hrs away. I like to go yearly to see the fall colors. Used to be a Vette club run but seems nobody wants to do the fun stuff - actually drive the cars - anymore so I just go. Friday was busy with therapy appt and supposed to been a nursing home visit but was a last minute cancellation due to a positive employee. Fifth time this has happened to us and she is devastated. We did a 'door' visit. The day consisted of other things, getting plants in you name it. Got home Sunday night wore out. Felt crappy Monday so stayed on the couch. Of course, work today when it's beautiful outside. Wally World run after.
Gris good vibes and prayers for your grand on a fast recovery.
Marcus, Congrats on the new job.

A customer of Sue's that lives in the Keys brought us some frozen lobster tails. I'm sure we will find something to do with them. We've been meeting some very nice people lately. It means there is hope for South Florida yet.

Morning guys...Nice and cool in the bedroom (temp wise- smart a$$ ) so sleeping in was easy. A chilly start for today, 36 now, but headed to the low 70s. Like Gris, it's cloudy and a bit dreary, but we are hopeful that that means some moisture on the way.....we'd take some of that rain you are getting Tommy.

Need to get out to the shop....
