Same here, get both with photos. I don't see that I do anything different. I guess just the mood the internet is in that day.
Hot as all get out here, had the cousin and the baby here for a swim, been cleaning ever since. Hope you all have a great weekend.

Hot as boiled snot here today. Was 90 on my way in this morning already. Watering plants daily they still droop. Matt's post just reminded me I need a new speaker in the passenger door of the GS. No way I'm paying 300$ at the stealership for it. Arron sent me my part number but not before I hit Esteal looking for one. For my year model and being a GS I'm seeing two different ones. His part number correlates with one but then he says that's not it. I'm confused. Looks like it will be a door panel removal to get to the bottom of the argument.
Speaking of arguments I'm having one with our school here I'm doing the bus wrap for. Long story but we gave a ballpark quote based on their stated amount of coverage and them doing the design work. Now, they sent design and have paid but their design adds about $2,000 additional materials and labor, and then after getting a discount for me not doing the design, they asked me to do one anyway so they could "pick" - ended up a waste of my time and delayed me on another customer. Now he's mad at the price difference. His fault. But how to you explain it all nicely?
Just one of today's issues. Onward to conquer! Stay cool and hydrated y'all it's muggy and hot out,

I reckon it's nice out side. Too busy in the office to go look. Aim to shortly. No matter how busy you are you must take time for a break, stress will kill you. Walked into a wasp nest and several fires to put out proverbially speaking this morning.
No new HD, the one he wanted was gone already. He didn't call to verify before he wasted 6 hours of my time driving and what not in pursuit. He will find something else that catches his eye and hopefully make sure it's there before dragging me along for nothing. I could've gotten a lot done around the house.
Hope everyone has a great day

Hot and icky here. Rained cats and dogs yesterday up here and got home to all my plants, some newly potted turned over including the 9ft bird of paradise. That sucker's heavy. Lawn chair in the pool, one plant that was in the ground was blown and uprooted and sent across the driveway. Of course today sunny and hot with a 109* heat index. Ugh.
Tee good luck at the dentist while they're working on your toot.
yall have a good day and stay cool

Good afternoon -
I can relate to Tommy - would like to wake up and this whole year be over. Too much crap happening.
And yes, June flew by like a blur. The whole HALF a year did matter of fact.
Storming like crazy here, wasn't expecting that. Glad I went ahead and put the windows up on the car.
Currently in the middle of that 40-ft school bus they wanted one of their "own" to design. Loads of fun there back and forth with the dude to "help". (rolling eyes)
Also the 24ft vintage airstream that's about to be a food vending unit. slower day, less aggravation - and am grateful for it

Morning everyone. I trust you all had a productive weekend. At least from posts it seems like it. I come in here when I get back to work and read through things and man, y'all make me tired! I can't keep up with y'all.
Work was nuts last week, 2 anxiety attacks, then the tint guy had a meltdown, then the owner had one, something in the water here I suppose. Everyone everywhere is stressed with current situations nationally and MSM keeps us all worked up. I have pretty much avoided "news" anymore and am ashamed to admit now that I've spent most of my career in the "news media" with what they've become.
Hot, sticky, overcast, humid and yucky here. Sun pops out now and then. Felt horrible all weekend and just kept my head down. Then tried to do stuff yesterday and overdid it. We must listend to our bodies, get sleep, get hydration and nutrition. I've done none of that this weekend. Matter of fact, 6:41 exactly has been the time Ive woke up 5 days running now. Weird.
Y'all have a great day!

Overcast here today too, cooler, still a tad humid but nothing like the last couple days.
Busier than a one legged man in a tail kicking contest at work, and am here on my normal day off. have a food trailer to do. They wanted to pick it up today but didn't drop off till Saturday and I don't come in till Tuesday. They knew all this so it wasn't humanly possible anyway. They left how they wanted it, I sent it then they totally changed it. I've had two anxiety attacks this week. Jeeez.
New barber shop here, also rush order on a ton of wall graphics, graffiti style prints and what not. Picked up today, left me $60 tip. Perhaps that'll make the day start off better.
Hope everyone else has a good Friday -

Add me to the list of discarded bills. Got a $50 today. Not sure why we don't see more of those. Also collected $6800 cash for a wrap couple days ago - all cnotes. I looked through them to possibly catch a standout. Couple 1996 notes base value, that was about it other than some interesting sequential number sets.
Hot as heck outside today, makes me glad to be inside. Finally getting a haircut this evening. Needs to happen or else I'll be like another girl I know - she sat down on the toilet and her hair touched the water. Nope.
The C8 is getting paint protection film installed today, I might go sneak a peek again shortly. Am in the middle of a 40-ft school bus and a 24-ft airstream and another 24-ft food truck wrap. Where these peopel get all this money?

I think we probably all wish we had that. Nice car.
Hope everyone had a nice weekend, mine was relaxing in spurts, not a whole day to myself. Some unexpected company, nursing home junk, the works. Office life is VERY busy.
Speaking of cars, another one of the 2020 Vettes showed up for paint protection. This time I was here to see it in person. I still am not a fan. The front view is nice, the rear view is nice, the side view still looks off centered and awkward. And that giant ipad thing in the cockpit is a nope for me as well. looks like they taped it in there at the last minute or something. With some tweaks I'd like it, however not in this color combination.

Good afternoon, 2:00 and all is well. I hope.
Things slowed down here from yesterday, hope they stay that way. Weather says chance of humidity and rain this weekend, hope it holds off a few days. Sorry to hear about all the funerals Gris, prayers.
Just got a call from the nursing home, the entire place had to be tested due to one employee that works at other locations as well who was positive. Not only my relative but the entire facility came back as 100% negative. Good news on that front
Hope everyone has a good afternoon

Hope everyone has had a good last few days and today as well. quick break at work then back at it. This place has me stressed out and too many jobs at once to work on plus some junk blew up at home in regards to the nursing home and DHS. And some family can't seem to understand you have enough to do and don't need their drama. Same goes for some customers. I have a couple that can't understand why I can't shove their jobs in ahead of some pre-paid others . They waited till the last minute and this time of the year is not when we are able to accommodate last minute anything. I have too many others in ahead that have paid. They come first. I do things in the order that I get them and often am working on several at once.
anywho, hope y'all have a more peaceful day - I'd like to be home it's beautiful here. Was supposed to be this past weekend but alas it was cloudy and even rained some. figures it's nice when I'm stuck indoors -

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood....
It seriously is, came in to work it was 72, not a cloud in the sky and a slight breeze. Perfect day to meausure this giant school bus that just got dropped off. Longest school bus I've seen. Most districts here are going with used coach busses, but not this one.
got a few other things to try and get out today also, proofs on three trucks, a van, an approval on a box truck and cab and whatever else I've forgotten.
Ya'll have a great day

muggy and overcast here today, the 'hurricane' moved through here yesterday afternoon and evening. It looked like on on our radar as well. Hoping for a slow day at the office, not much sleep and had unexpected out of towners Sunday, was glad to see them though. Just unprepared.
My dove nesting in my hanging flowers has had her eggs hatch and has a couple nice sized babies in there. I just got to see them yesterday, cute boogers.
Hope everyone has a good day

Happy Birthday, Matt! Yes, you have one every year. Unless you are a woman like me and you stop at 50. I had my 52nd this past Saturday, I tell people I'm on my second 50th lol.
The tropical rain is on it's way, should be here by 2 they said but it's 20 after, so any minute? I held off watering the plants in anticipation of that doing it for me. Of course, when we got a monsoon Friday on the way home from my foot surgery, it was heavy heavy rain there, here and all around except our house. Nothing. Rest of the town and one I had just come from flooded but dry as a bone at our house.
Y'all have a good Monday

mornin'. Overcast and just rained here. Muggy bad. Thunder so loud it would split your head woke me up 6ish. I was just getting back to sleep from something waking me up at 430.
busy day yesterday, then got home to find out I needed to go mow the cousin's yard at her house (nursing home cousin) as the guy I paid to do it hasn't in 3 weeks. I drove by and seen grass too tall so got that handled and hired someone else. Went to message the regular dude and he's either deleted his FB and/or messenger or blocked me. Don't care either way, it's handled.
Lot to do today, then some more stuff when I get out of here, then at home, then get ready to get my foot unscrewed in the morning.
have a great day!

Overcast here today, and muggy. Not real hot yet but when it gets there I hope I don't have to be out in it.
I have enough to work on. Owner is across the street installing and his portable air thing went out so it was pretty nasty over there all day.
Reading Tee's post yesterday I'm wore out already. Hope you got some rest.
Bout to get at it here, y'all have a good day

another beautiful day here and supposed to be for a few days. Relief. Had a great weekend, and visit to a drive through safari, then tried to rest yesterday for some time to myself in the peace and quiet. Had to deal with pool company all afternoon and they'll be back tomorrow.
Have more at work to do than I know what to do with.
Got my Covid test this morning. I can't see why people would want to willingly do that if they aren't symptomatic. Talk about uncomfortable! I wasn't symptomatic but rather have a procedure Friday so had to be cleared.
Carry on and have a nice day

It just rained so hard here I thought my ceiling was caving in. Then now it looks outside like it never even happened.
Might be at the office late. Have a 24-ft trailer to get some of it in the printer so he can work this weekend. Also got the 'flag drape' on the casket. I need to get in there and take me a selfie

Was really impressed by your words yesterday Tommy.
My folks were depression kids, mother didn't have much, none of them did when you have that many kids, and yes they picked cotton to get by, and worked at the Singer factory. Mammaw didn't get to go to school but made sure her kids did. She taught herself basic math, did her own taxes and what not. My mom often had to have us live with a relative but she made sure I merged with the other normal kids and had what she could afford. I know she gave up a lot for me. It was hard to do on her own making $1.10 an hour when I was small, then in high school she made $121/week. I'm sure she cried a lot.
Busy day here too, 24 ft trailer, quotes to gather and give, a casket wrap, more stuff from yeserday etc.
Sun is out and it's warm and humid here. Wanted to go somewhere this weekend but been too busy to look for a spot. Maybe something will drop in our laps.
Have a great day

Happy Birthday John!
In looking past over the last few days I've missed seems y'all have had about the weather we've had. 15 days straight of forecast rain starting last Friday. Ended up with a beautiful Memorial Day weekend. Unfortunatey, as per usual in my world, all h*ll broke loose on every front. Slowly trying to get all the issues under control from pool, to heat and air unit, to family, etc.
Tommy, my grandparents weathered more catastrophic events and as a kid living with them, I took up their ways. I am not much one to waste, I have leftovers, I use worn out towels for dishcloths after cutting them down, or they'll become shop rags, I try to be thrifty and when this "pandemic" hit (one of the words on my list I'm sick of hearing) life didn't really change for me that much. I bought up some TP but not hoarded it but heck we have 3 bathrooms in the house so it takes a bit to stock those. I "make due" with things often. Some of the freaking out I have seen locally just blows my mind. Can't fix stupid I guess. I just get up and turn off MSM and carry on with my day.
Gotta get back to the work, have a pile on my desk. Y'all have a good afternoon.

Good morning.
Was told it would be beautiful here today then storm all weekend. It was overcast and cloudy when I drove in to the office. Not sure why it always has to either be storming all the days that I'm off or something else happening to make sure I have not one entire whole day to myself. Always something I guess, life goes on.
I'm >>this close<< to approval on the dump truck that came in yesterday and if so, I can get that in the printer and he can be working on that while I'm off. I have about 6 other projects going now. And that classic "ring ring" dude wants me to come to the next town over for some lettering and what not on some giant cranes. I can't I'm here by myself at the moment.
Y'all have a good un

I was about to say that's a long time for a SC. Shop rates have gotten nuts. I think where my bf is at it's just over $100/hour. He works on the side though and can do a complete motor swap in one evening on just about anything. I've seen him add an SC pretty quick on a vette when I worked at the body shop.
Matt I have a leaf cover only. We leave ours running all winter, if it gets very cold we will run the fountain to help keep water moving. No issues so far. But once leaf cover comes off and it's time to get in there, those "tree worm' things are EVERYWHERE. And, it's my tree doing it so

Overcast and cloudy here, more rain coming that we absolutely do not need. Not me anyway. Farmers are upset as well, it delays them even more.
Pool company told us to keep filling pool even though a 'sinkhole' has developed on side wall of deep end.
Tommy - great minds - what you said yesterday is exactly what I told Arron. Raise the 10' to 8' foot and take out diving board and install a slide. I'm thinking resale value as there really aren't any kids that come over to our house since we don't have any. Even in doing that it still wouldn't be up to the level of the sinkhole. The construction crew is aware of it, not sure what's the next plan.
Have a 2020 Kenworth dump truck due here any minute so I have a pile of work to get at.
Hope everyone has a good day.

Good afternoon, hope y'all have had a good weeekend.
Tommy good to hear she's up and about and recovering.
Speaking of foot surgery, mine after 6 months is still hurting. I asked him would I feel that screw in there he says he doubts it. Well I do. Both ends of it. He called me back yesterday for xrays and determined we'll go back in there the 5th and get the screw out. bone has healed enough to do without it. Jeez.
This weekend has been a disaster pool wise. A simple liner refit due to floating ended up being a $1500 separate pump install, four days and now it seems the deep end 'poolcrete' is collapsing. Just my luck. this house is cursed I swear. There goes all our vaca money we've saved for like 3 years since we've been unable to go anywhere for one reason or another forcing us to cancel. I have cried all I can and just done.
Where we live was swamp couple hundred years ago and has been farm land. 20 years ago our homes were built there. no water standing in all the time I can remember. 30+ years at least. last year we all flooded in this region. water table is waaaay up. and it still hasn't quit raining. farmers aren't pumping out water because it's still raining. to the point they can't get in to plant and are behind here. What that does for me is keep water behind my pool liner and now it's been bad enough to compromise the 'pool crete' shell.
I'm considering having the 10' deep end filled up to 8ft, removing the diving board and just putting a slide in. I think we'd enjoy that more anyway
And today got the call that the one in the nursing home has 101 fever. Says she feels fine but fever is an indication of something. Not sure what yet at this point, labs ordered
anyhow, prayers are welcome please and thank you

Good morning y'all.
Overcast at work but 10 miles away at home, sunny and beautiful. Sprinkled on my way in.
I'm due a giant dump truck here for the pool place to measure, design is done already but this is a new truck I have to fit. A couple of other things working.I was supposed to have already found us a place to stay if possible in Missouri so we could do some flea marketing this weekend but not really had time. Finally got some sleep (like a dead rock) last night so maybe tonight I"ll find us something to do.
Hope everyone has a great day

Matt, ours stays open all year. We turn the fountain on when temps drop to keep water moving. My usuall biggest worry is the "neighbor's" leaves and the worm things off our tree out front.
I want a new pool - ours is L shaped but goes the wrong direction for the sun. I want a odd shaped one that has a gradual slope into the water kinda like the beach

Our pool is very easy to maintain. Our issues were we inherited the likes of a catfish pond. I already knew this and when making the offer on the house I offered $5k less. They also came back with a $1500 prepaid certificate to the pool place they used to ease our minds. Good deal. But, the pool place they had us with later refused to honor the certificate. They owe one of us money. We went with the place here that I design wraps for. We sprung for a new pool liner as part of an insurance claim from storms. Problem is, the original installers half assed it. The company is trying to make it right. Weather wont' cooperate. Water got behind the liner last year and floated it as we had flooding we'd not seen in 30+ years. Sometimes stuff happens.
otherwise, the thing pretty well is a non-issue chemical wise and cleaning. Add salt at beginning of season, that's the chlorination, then keep an eye on other chemicals weekly. To clean, we use bottom drain and sweep downward, takes bout an hour and done.

Good morning everyone, hope y'all have had a good last few days. Sorry I've been absent, just get busy with things and dont' get in my forums like I should.
Rainy again here today but 20-30* warmer than yesterdady.
Pool people asked us to drain for the refit, we did and are installing some fancy valve in the bottom to avoid this in the future. Today she messages to stop draining, valve isn't here like she thought. Figures. Pool is a dust bowl at the moment and no valve so crap just hanging there.Third time.
Anywho, hope everyone has a good day and makes the best of it. I went from zero work to all of a sudden I have 5 jobs on my desk. Gotta get at 'em.

Can't always read a book by the cover - those looks of innocence will get ya every time!
Well I took my paperweight home lol, texted a friend what I had and lo and behold apparently he needed one for something, didn't say what but he'd just bought one.
I have absolutely zero use for a carb on anything. period. My ATV has one and I'd rather it not.
I guess I could buy some high test line, hit the siphon access at the river and use it as a sinker. Would be good in those swift waters.
Hope everyone has a great day today, beautiful here but the lows, dang. Pool people have put us off for another couple weeks, there's some valve he wants in the bottom drain to help with liner floating during floods. WE usually don't have floods but we have this past year, of a biblical scale nearly, and then a ton of rain since. Our water table is up. Thus the 2-week delay. We will keep it as clean as possible and continue with the chlorine pucks until they come then we'll refill, add our salt and switch over.

good morning, beautiful day here, on the chilly side. we're told to expect 'record lows' this week.
pool people supposed to be at the house today and tomorrow for a drain and refit of the liner (third time) maybe this time'll get it.
Vette club meeting last night was lawn chairs out in the restauran'ts parking lot, carry out food. like a picnic. We enjoyed it , and of course, since there were a parking lot full of corvettes, any mustang that drove by had to make his presence known.
Gris glad to hear the wife is up and around.

Prayers Tommy/Sue
Kept me head down this past weekend, tried to rest and get some yard crap done, then storms messed up my work.
Busy day at the office day as well.
I'm not a mother's day particpant but my bday is coming up and I plan to as for a new pair or two of Ray Bans. or car tires, whichever he prefers. I'm good with the shades as mine are all shot. I wouldn't mind a spa day either, I realllllly could use a massage but those will have to wait a bit.
Hope everyone's had a good last few days.
Car club meeting tonight, "parking lot" meeting, and they'll bring our food out to our car .

Good mawnin.
Beautiful day here today, don't look like much work here so far, hoping it stays that way.
I picked up some wooden beach bar chairs on a beach trip last year for $25 each. Just disassembled, powerwashed, sanded and painted one, will paint the other this weeeknd. And, my pizza manager lady also tinkers with wood so I sent her a pic of the bar chairs and asked for a cheap basic table to go with. She's dropping it off to me today. Material price is $45 she said. I have more $ to give her but looking good so far. I also have one of those vintage wooden beach chairs, the kind with the fabric you lay in. I am in the middle of sewing a new fabric for it. Looks like they'll all match pretty good. Gotta get some yellow and white in the mix somehow.
Hope everyone has a great day

Had some huuuggee stawms our way last night, rain carried on into this morning. I had to take some stuff to the nursing home for her today and she wanted a hummingbird feeder and new flag put out so I'm out there in the rain before work. Of course by the time I pull into the work parking lot the sun is out and it's beautiful outside.
So sorry to hear of your wife's surgical woes Tommy. My foot pain hasn't eased really either and it's been what, 5 months now? I mean it was just a simple bunion removal. A friend had the bunion/hammertoe whole thing and he's doing better than me. Feels like soemone is mashing my toe a lot on the bottom end. Weird nerve sensations still also.

From yesterday:

</p><p>I think 3LT<strong>+</strong> was a joke—they were just trying to say why the 3LT in Centennials was a little nicer than other 3LTs of the same era. Remember that ours is a narrow-body, not a GS like I believe yours is. On our car, sticker was <strong>$5,995</strong> for the 3LT (which was <em><strong>required</strong></em> with the Centennial package) and <strong>$4,950</strong> for the Centennial package itself, and they are listed seperately. We ended up with <strong>$15,380</strong> (!) worth of options—Chevrolet was definitely learning from Porsche …</p>


I just assumed the 3LT on the GS Centennial was basic stuff and the suede and all that was "part" of the added Centennial upgrade. Either way, they'll get their cash one way or another.

Wish we could go to the beach from here. Kinda hard to do on a 'day' run. I have a friend living near Pensacola who's arguing with me, "let us enjoy them for a while" to which I replied "first, you live there and never go" and "y'all can go any day of the week at your whim for free, people like us only get one week a year and we've tried three years now and have had to keep cancelling, plus what it COSTS us to go." We have done our best to understand each other's side .
And here the NOLA people flooded our areas so the Gov closed it to everyone. I figure he could've at least had the out of staters towed off or turn them around at the state line like FLA is doing to us. Seems fair.

Letty, we also got the suede with the 3LT and the Centennial—and we've owned ours since new. A couple years ago I heard ago I heard a GM product person refer to the Centennial's 3LT as 3LT+. I think they were just trying to control product variation …

It's supposed to be a beautiful week and weekend here, hoping so. I need to water the plants. Haven't stopped much since I got off work Thursday except for a break here and there while doing junk in the house and outside. We tried to go fishing one day but crowds of little noisy kids showed up so we left and just rode around.
Hope everyone has a good day.

cooler and raining again this morning here. Supposed to be a nice day tomorrow though. I still have some stuff to do outside and need to get some paint mix corrected. I ordered a coral and got a flamingo pink. Sent BF after it. I should've went. They told him, the swatch I sent "wasn't in their color chart". So? You can't use that fancy spectrometer and it tells you what to put in there to achieve that color? Like literally everyone else can do? So much for home town convenience. So, yet another project sits idle.
Hoping for a slow day at the office today, I have a couple things I need to do but really don't want to be involved in production like I have been the last couple days.
Sorry to hear of your grandsons's car Gris, and hope everyone else is okay. I have some TX friends I need to see about.
Hope everyone has a good day.

Good moring to all
Have a few projects going on here at work, plus a rather large yard sign order for the catholic school here. Lots of schools are doing yard signs for graduates or in this case for all students to be "united in spirit" as these say.
Feel like I have missed a few dates with the sandman. Runnng on hardly any sleep for the last few days, too much to do to day so there will be much coffee in my future.
Beautiful here yesterday and day before but rain moving in on my commute this morning.
Be good or be good at it, your choice ~

Good late-morning. We're up and around late. We both worked hard this week and in the yard yesterday. Him on cars all week and me deep cleaning at the office. Both hurt all over so resting today. Drippy here too with overcast skies. Might make for a nap/tv kinda afternoon. Of course knowing me I'll endup getting up to do stuff.
Got about 65 bags of mulch out yesterday, rings made around the trees to help with the dry spots underneath and I planted some more things. Have a couple more to go but they'll wait till tomorrow.
Hope y'all have a smooth Sunday

Only supposed to be 59 today. I still need to get mulch out. More deep cleaning at the office yesterday I'm too tired n sore to mess with it. sun will be out however so that's a bonus. Rain tomorrow.
Found out one of my old coworkers from the paper is now in hospice. I hate to hear that for her. She had dementia or something and had to retire. Company took care of her as long as they could. Adn now it's about to meet it's end. Corporate bout to destroy a 100+ year old family establishment. Sad. All that history thanks to Paxton Media Group.
hope you all have a great day

Agree - this absolutely can't be the new normal. I can't handle it.
Was a beautiful day here yesterday so I played hookie at work and am here today to make up for being off yesterday.
Nothing to do here and hope there isn't all day. I'm tired. Did a deep clean up here Wednesday, moving out furniture from walls, cleaning baseboards, the works. Did some planting yesterday at home and moved plants back out in the sun. I really need some plant dollies to leave them on, but my luck big wind would come up and blow one off into the pool.
Hoping I feel like it and can get that mulch put out tomorrow morning. I just can't seem to get motivated to do that crap.

John yes, gypsy felons! I've learned a new word. our has was added on to at some point. It appears to have been gutted and redone interior wise. And, the master suite and bath, etc was a compelte add on. The baseboards, other trim, cabinets, bath are excellent. The crown moulding is something a gypsy felonw would do!
Tommy, the 30 bags is for the front, I need another 25 for the back but that's plenty enough for me to haul around lol.

Tee does exceptional work based on the photos I've seen. I have a nice wine stopper to boot that I get regular compliments on.
Marcus, yes he could help me with the plumbing work! LOL! I'm not touching it. It now at least has shut off valves on there, fingers crossed one of those don't mess up or else my ceiling will be clean. Whoever did some of the things in this house got their contractor's permit from a Cracker Jack box. Slowly one by one we're straightening it all out.
I have 30 bags of mulch waiting on me so may take off tomorrow to get up and get some of that done, then rest the remainder of the day. I can work Friday to make my work day up. I'm in the middle of a racecar hood, Freddie Kreuger theme and will be printed on blue chrome. I can't get it through his head that it will not look right, color-wise. The blue of the material will interfere with everything else.
Oh well, the sun is shining, temps are up some, gonna try to make the best of it.
Gris, glad to hear the wife is getting along good. None of us women like how men do things in the kitchen by the way lol.
