NOTHING ON THE AGENDA; GOOD THING BIG DAUGHTER GAVE ME SOME BOOKS FOR BD.

WAY DOWN YONDER IN THE INDIAN NATIONS:

Wardens Larry Green and Spencer Grace said the two convicted felons were in possession of a firearm, had no driver's license, were hunting without landowner consent in an untagged and uninsured truck, and had an illegal deer head in the feed box of the truck.

A little early but enjoy.

'Twas the night before Christmas
And in the garage.
There wasn't a trace of a Ford or Dodge.
The presents were wrapped and the lights were all lit,
So I figured I'd go mess with my Corvette for a bit.
I popped the release and I lifted the hood,
When a deep voice behind me said "Looks pretty good."
Well as you can imagine, I turned mighty quick,
And there by my workbench, stood good Ol' Saint Nick!
He just stared at first, not sure what to say,
Then Santa piped in "Don't suppose you'd trade that for my sleigh?'
"Forget it, Mr. Claus" then I started to grin
"If you've got some time we could go for a spin!"
His round little mouth, all tied up like a bow,
Burst into a smile when he said "C'mon then, Let's GO!!"
So as not to disturb all my neighbours' retreat,
We pushed my old Stingray quietly onto the street.
Then, taking our places to drift down the hill,
I turned on the key, then let the clutch spill.
The sound erupted and took Santa by surprise,
But he liked it a lot, by the look in his eyes.
With cold tires spinning and exhaust pipes aglow,
We headed on out to roads hot rodders go.
And Santa's grin widened, approaching his ears,
With every shift up as I went through the gears.
Then he yelled "Can't recall when I've felt so alive!"
So I backed off the gas and said "Do you wanna drive?"
Ol' Santa was stunned when I gave him the keys,
As he walked past the headlights he shook at the knees!
Then the big block exploded with raspy exhaust sound!
Santa let out the clutch as the tires tore up the ground.
Power shift into second, again into third!
I grabbed for the handle, at loss for a word.
With the tank reaching empty, Santa returned to his sleigh,
Never to forget that ride in my '69 Stingray
Later, I heard him exclaim, as he blasted from sight,
"Merry Christmas, to all,
it's been a great night!!!"

Morning guys....it is still morning isn't it?

Pretty chilly this morning, 18 but up to 32 now. Boy Gris, we should could use that rain you're getting, drier than a popcorn fart here. 40s for highs for the foreseeable future.

I had a clock doctor here this morning. The clock I built a couple years back, got finicky and wouldn't run. The doc came in and checked several things out and determined that the hands weren't adjusted properly and it was causing the clock to stop. As he was explaining the issue, I realized he was absolutely dead on in his diagnosis. I explained to him that made perfect sense, since the clock would stop at almost the same exact minute every time. He told me I could add about a pound of weight to the center weight and it would have probably worked through it, but he adjusted the hands and told me to keep an eye on it, but he was confident that the hand adjustment was the problem. I've ordered lead shot to add to the center weight, as he said the pendulum I had really needs a little more weight than it has.

Going out to the shop now to spray a couple coats of finish on the tables. Church a little later, then over to #2s house for supper after the City's Christmas parade.

Well, like Marc, the wind...and dirt clouds, blew in about noon. I came out of the shop and a very light breeze was blowing but to the north I could see a black dirt coloud headed our way. By the time I got to the house it hit hard. Visibility dropped to about 100 yards...I could see the end of the block, but not much further.

Had to go out west to work on a computer, for a 9 mile drive it tool a long time to get there. Luckily, it was an easy fix and was headed back within 15 minutes.

Got back and finished up my tables and got the first coat of lacquer applied.

Wind still blowing but the dirt cloud has eased.

very nice right now but the other shoe will drop at around 3 o'clock when strong winds come in from the Northwest.... 40 mph straight wind with 60 to 70 mph gusts...... time to hunker down I'm thinking..... better put in the garbage cans or they will be in the next county...

don't believe everything you hear Guru's...... just saying.... especially from the news media......

Morning guys...up and around and headed to the shop. pretty warm compared to the last few mornings, mid 30s now and headed to low 70s today. Low 40s for high tomorrow.

Helped a friend make some projects yesterday in the shop. Will hopefully finish those up today and maybe I'll finish building my tables as well.

Later guys.

I've made a few things in shop class Made quite a few things on lathes...I love turning on the lathe. In high school, Rosie was pretty good turning things on the lathe as well.

Tommy, I'll guess Mahogany... it was less expensive back then. Walnut has always been expensive. I always gave good grades for effort.

I still have a small table I made in shop class. I messed up the middle on the lathe so I turned out about a 6 inch circle out of the center and inlaid a peice of mahogany or walnut. I'll have to ask tee what it is. LOL Got a good grade for my effort.

Hate to hear that about MvVie. So many of the artists and such from before are dying. That story about the preacher is horrible, bless them all. you just never know.
Marcus, the client did hire a photographer with a professional camera to take photos but they were still too grainy to use. This will be seen up close so it needs to be clear at 14 feet wide. I don't know anyone that has a camera of that high pixel caliber. Someone that shoots for large posters and such maybe but none of that is around here. What I did yesterday was a last resort. A combination of many images can produce a larger whole image that one single shot. And I can stitch together in photoshop. But the large size that he wants this thing to be I just don't see it happening. My "pieces" are better but it will be a sh*t ton of work and very time consuming. It will take me hours. I'd just rather not. I need to call him and let him come see my assembled parts to see what he wants to do. He wants to put the car up for the winter which will not be where I can get any more photos of it. my only other option is to look online and try to find someone that has shot one at a size that would reproduce this large and try to buy digital rights. Not the first time I've had to for other things. It would help if there was one in an online art service but I've not found one.
Very cold here today and being out in it yesterday so long I think caused my croup I have to suffer a setback. Rather not be here today but have stuff to do. Need to be here tomorrow too to get caught up but if he dont' want to fork over the cash I won't be here.

Sunny and windy should get into the 40's..... just doing my thing..... I need a project.... the shop is all cleaned up the tools in place.... I need to do a few things to the 56 but most of those require an upholsterer... Bikes are done....... hmmm.... better call my Cuz up in Big Sky and see if he is ready to sell his C5 yet...... that would be a nice project....

I was in 8th grade woodworking making a lamp on the lathe when the kid behind me who was making a bowl cut to deep and the rim of the bowl came off the base and flew apart....missed me by inches but hit my machine..... Mr. Greenough our shop teacher was not pleased....I remember him paddling kids who misbehaved with one of his famous hardwood paddles with the holes drilled in it so no air pressure would build up on the downswing..... I was perfect of course and never got in trouble.... we still use my projects to this day in the house..... the breadboards and the big fruit bowl I made for my Mom and now we have them. The fruit bowl is filled with snacks... I love a good snack......

Keep it up Guru's

Death by lathe? Sounds gruesome.

Sad about Christine McVie. Lovely artist. I have used this metaphor a few times.... The George Harrison of Fleetwood Mac, not the most prolific, but what she did write was magic.

Happy December... Been chilly here. Chance of rain, about 60F today.

Good Morning CGs!

Cold is the word of the day. Not sickness related but it sure makes me sick. 18* as it sits. No snow right now, though. I did stock up on salt the other day in preparation so probably won't need it for a while. You're welcome.

Letty, were you able to get the photos you needed?

Hope everyone has a great day!

Morning guys...chilly again this morning, but the south winds staerted blowingearly promising to bring warmer air in.

Tommy, that is odd about the priest. I've heard stories about lathes. I had a friend who had a student die after a lathe accident. He was turning a large bowl and the blank came loose from the faceplate flew off and hit him in the chest causing his heart to stop, couldn't get it going again.

Got to go to church. Another funeral...the wife of our friend who died in August. She fell and died the next day. But no matter what the death cert says, she died of a broken heaart.....

Got to go.

Just want to share a pic of the car I just went to try and get other "pieces" of photos of. Will look at my parts later but this is the whole car. "over restored" even down to tiny rubber things inside, better than new. And, it's not his only one ~

Someone on another forum said something that gave me a brainstorm. That other place I remembered was Coleman Racing. I happened to see that website at one time and found what appeared to be the same trailing arms etc. along with heim joints comparable to what was on the Banski site. Thing was you'd have to assemble your own package.

good morning what's left of it.
Nyquil was working good this morning and it was hard to get moving. I had a bus coming at 9:30 to measure and photos to take at 1 so I needed to be here. It is way too cold here to be outside doing anything much less standing in the wind for an hour or more measuring stuff. My hands are froze. I can't wait till time to go home. Fingers crossed my photos later will work. I need a photo of this Superbird to print clean at 14 feet. I'm about to do my last resort hail Mary thing and use my Sony point and shoot and my phone to take photos of this car in pieces and then get in photoshop and put them all back together for hopefully one, large printable image. Huge PITA for me but I really don't want a crappy photo of a car that values at $250 large on the side of a very expensive trailer that hauls it that will be seen everywhere. If this was gonna be seen on a billboard or at a distance I'd use what I already have but I'm not comfortable with it and neither is he.
Bout to take a lunch break with some warm comfy left over chicken and dumplings and get back at it. Y'all have a good day

CLEAR AND COLD IN THE NATIONS, 38 ON THE FRONT PORCH. THE WEATHER WIZARDS SAY THE HIGH WILL BE 47. AT LEAST THE SUN IS SHINING, THE CHEROKEES ARE GRATEFUL.

WAS REALLY WINDY YESTERDAY, MORE LIKE WESTERN OKLAHOMA THAN THE INDN NATIONS. I ACTUALLY GOT ALL MY ACCUMULATED TASKS DONE IN SPITE OF DARLING WIFE'S ADDITIONS. SO TODAY'S AGENDA IS OPEN.

ENJOY YOUR DAY, GURUS!

Hey guys, busy day here. Cold when we got up and temps were constant or dropping all day, 18 now.

Spent all day in the shop working on a pair of tables for #1 and SIL, prepping materials for another project and creating a frame for a sign. The tables, I'm trying to finish up so we can take them with us on the next trip to KC.

Just came in about 7pm.

Good afternoon - where did my weekend go?
Yall, get the C8s. Drive em like you stole em. That's what they're for. Congrats on the Camaro, Matt, nice looking car.
I can of course sympathize with the old folks home issues. At least in our state we have the visitation law now, it's law in other states but unfortunately not all states. It's stalled in committee preventing that. Sad and shameful of our congressmen.
RSV in adults has been going around here and lots have been sick. Arron had it a bit back and I've had the basic issue sinus crud. Managed to get the house clean Friday all day, Saturday I was out running all day, Sunday I don't remember and yesterday I spent the day putting up Christmas stuff. I just want to sleep. But - we've been having storms off and on all day and they're stil hollering the "T" word we all hate so not resting till all that blows out and we're in the clear.
Yall have a good afternoon

Good Afternoon CGs!

Was warm and sunny this morning. Now it's overcast and starting to cool off. I could go for some of Tommy's 80* weather.

Checked over the car yesterday. Needs all new radiator hoses including heater core hoses. Of course those are the expensive molded ones with metal brackets and cost $100 for the set. Go figure. Apparently bulk hose for $1.99 a foot isn't good enough.

Hope everyone has a great day!

We've been breaking heat records in SoFlo. Vulcan ridiculous. 88, 85 and such. Lows in the mid 70's at night. Should straighten out before too long. I'd rather be hot than cold any day though.

Went to CVS to pick up some meds and saw a sale on some candies I like around the holidays. Chocolate covered cherries, Dove dark chocolate with almonds singles, York peppermint patties and Hershies dark chocolate truffles. I get them for health reasons of course as we all know dark chocolate is good for you. Anyway, the Yorks were buy one get one free. All the rest were sitting above a sign that says 50% off. I did it again. Not reading the fine print above it, it says Buy One Get One 50% off. I always fall for that ploy of theirs. I always tell Sue everything always tastes better when you buy it on sale. The grocery stores use that notorious trick as well. My fault for not paying attention but at least my candy jars are all stocked and .... they were on sale.

OVERCAST, BREEZY, 62 IN THE NATIONS GOING FOR 69 THEY PREDICT.

BUSY DAY ON TAP: ALL THE THINGS I DIDN'T GET DONE FRIDAY WHEN EVERYTHING WAS CLOSED AND MONDAY WHEN THE TULSA TRIP ATE UP THE DAY. AUTO ROTATION A DAY LATE AND A FLOCK OF ERRANDS. AT LEAST IT'S NOT COLD, JUST WINDY. BUT THEN COMES A FREEZE TONIGHT.

IF YOU DON'T LIKE OKLAHOMA WEATHER, JUST WAIT. :-)

I think a C8 would suit you, TB. You and Tommy could be C8 twinsies.
