THE 105MM ON THE M60'S WAS NOT AS LOUD AS THE 90MM WITH TRANSVERSE MUZZLE BREAK ON THE M48 SERIES. IT WOULD LIFT A STEEL POT RIGHT OFF YOUR HEAD IF YOU WERE TOO CLOSE BEHIND IT.


TROUBLE WITH RANGES IS IF YOU WERE OIC OR SAFETY OFFICER ESPECIALLY, YOU COULDN'T GET TOO MUCH INTO EARPLUGS AS YOU HAD TO HEAR ANY ALARM OR "CEASE FIRE" CALL.

Always interesting, Gris—and that's a compliment. I adjusted very quickly to the combination of hearing protection they gave us in the Navy and could hear everything clearly. Of course, most of that damaging noise was jet engines on the flight deck.

Good afternoon, all.

Tom, we're glad Sue is okay.

All the way back east, we smell no smoke, but there was one day when the sun was a striking orange. Well north of us in upstate New York, I have reports of a smoky smell.

Gris, was that 105 mm/120 mm that caused the hearing loss? When I was in the Navy, they put a lot of trouble into limiting the damage—having us wear foam in the ears and "Mickey Mouse" over the ears. At least for me, it worked.

Good morning, all.

Bad news in our household this morning. Ivelis' closest friend in the Corvette hobby is entering hospice care. We had been planning to take her to Longwood Gardens today, but that's cancelled. We're hoping to go see her tomorrow.

It has been a rough couple of years in our part of the hobby.

The killer problem is that the basics of the telematics were designed in the early 2000s. Us 2012 owners got a slightly upgraded version of the 2005 unit.

That's why Ivelis and I ended up giving in and putting a Kenwood in it's place. At this point, we've forgotten what the old unit even looked like.

It was an aged seed and melt push spreader that I was disassembling for disposal. We have a surprising number of cotter pins amongst our garden tools.

John, yesterday, you mentioned that your house was a Craftsman, does it still have all the Craftsman details inside? I love Craftsman style houses, furniture and details.

The house isn't mine, Tom, it's my parents. Built in 1904 and messed up by various owners over the years until they bought it in late 1974. My parents than embarked on a multi-decade restoration, which only really got going when most of the eight children left the house. As you might guess from our family's size, the house is closest to the Four Square style, but even larger: six bedrooms (more in a pinch), three-and-a-half baths.

The house has big bones (huge fireplace and large ceiling beams), a large and cool porch, and lots of fine detail. It's a great house—the "big finish" to a row of five Craftsman houses on their side of that street.

We own an early 1960s Cape Cod constructed by gypsy felons. What we do have is (much) more garage space …

Good evening, all.

A busy couple of days. After we got home from Carlisle on Friday afternoon, I started to work on the 430 (!) photos I took. We went out for a celebratory steak dinner with our favorite waiter hosting us on Friday evening. Ivelis had the tomahawk—that's all I'm saying …

I spent a good portion of Saturday finishing up with the Carlisle photos. Still, we had a big event on for Saturday evening—a celebration of my youngest (of five) sister's engagement to a worthy gentleman. We provided individual (good) champagne bottles and glasses for twelve. A good time was had by all at the ancestral Mulhern Craftsman.

This morning, errands and taking the parents back and forth to church. But, the weather this afternoon was gorgeous: 75 degrees, 65% humidity, partly sunny, "Simpsons clouds." So, I decided to give Grace a ride—even if she didn't get Carlisle this year, she'd still get a drive on Corvettes at Carlisle weekend. After a little bit of detailing—the wheels needed help—we headed out. We drove for almost 90 minutes along some of the more distinctive local backroads, with everything just beautiful. Grace's engine rumbled quietly but authoritatively, and people were waving like crazy—often from very cool cars of their own. We're both so glad we took the drive.

1. Did the weather hold?

Not really. We bailed just after noon on Friday, and it was starting to drizzle. When it wasn't raining, it was hot and/or windy—likely the worst overall Corvettes at Carlisle weather in a decade.

4. Big crowd?

I believe it was a good crowd considering the conditions, but nothing like last year's record crowd. We saw more of our friends than we thought we would, but not as many as we had hoped.

5. Make it to the Middlesex Diner?

We eat at the Fairgrounds Diner—not the Middlesex Diner. In the years we stay all weekend, I never remember to try the Middlesex Diner.

8. When are you all getting a C8?

Maybe 2022/2023.

13. Did you all buy anything?

Not much. Ivelis got a couple of shirts from the Corvette Museum, and we got a couple of nicely constructed red Corvette masks from a vendor who was obviously a seamstress. I will shortly buy some parts from Top Flight (was Corvette America); we're trying to support vendors who made a showing.

Good afternoon, all.

These next few days look to be the last disgusting heat and humidity days of the year in the Philadelphia area.

We're off today and would originally have been at Carlisle by 10:00 AM this morning to stage our car for the NCRS Gallery in honor of Elaine. When that got postponed to 2021, we decided to still take the days off. We'll head to Carlisle early tomorrow morning for our classic one day trip—the goal is to be on the road by 4:45 AM and through Gate 3 before 7:00 AM.

Today, not so glamorous. We walked to the local CVS to get our flu shots this morning. I've done a little prep to Louis so he looks decent and also fueled him.

This afternoon, we're going to spend a gift card at a snotty local supermarket we almost never go to. Then, pick up some pizza and watch Greyhound—the Tom Hanks film set in the Battle of the North Atlantic.

… because it isn't happening this year.

Earlier this year, we were invited to be part of a unique NCRS Gallery at Corvettes at Carlisle in honor of Elaine Raisner—the "den mother" of our NCRS chapter who passed suddenly in January. The invite came from Elaine's husband, Tim, and, of course, we accepted.

We were bringing our 2003 50th Anniversary Convertible because Elaine loved that car (despite having a really nice triple black C5 convertible herself). I was beginning to prepare Grace for display when the Gallery was postponed to 2021, mainly because many of the participants were from way out of the area.

Corvette at Carlisle itself is still going on, and we'll be attending on Friday next week. Lance Miller, one of the co-owners of Carlisle Events, decided that they would include Elaine's In Memoriam in this year's event guide, and I enclose it.

Good afternoon, all.

A busy morning, as the basement now has another coat of Drylok—my Apple Watch tells me that I expended 392 calories doing the work and that my heart rate hit 125 bpm. Ivelis has mowed the front lawn in a snazzy diamond pattern, and now we're both relaxing.

Right now, I'm watching a re-run of last night's Flyers/Canadiens game, but I already know that my beloved Flyers have moved on to the next round. Tomorrow, the Indy 500—go Marco!

I was thinking about my old 66 T-Bird 390. I thought my mpg was terrible back then.

http://www.fuelly.com/car/ford/thunderbird/1966

I think the worst mileage was actually in the early 1970s—cars were heavier and engines were bigger. In my research for the Riviera Project, folks complain about the fuel mileage until about 1977. The first-generation cars got 10-11 city. By the time the Feds get around to testing in 1973, the range was 8.2-9.8 city (!).

For the Riviera, the worst of all was the example that was also the heaviest ever—1974's model was rated at 8.3 mpg city. After that, manuafacturers figured out how to game the system and cars actually got more efficient:

1975—12 mpg city
1976—12 mpg city
1977—15 mpg city

Thank you, Gris. It is somewhat of an endless rabbit hole, but there's certainly a lot of content.

Good morning, all.

An almost early fall day in the Philadelphia area—it was 61 degrees when we went for our morning walk.

Gris, 47 pictures. Other updates:

Good afternoon, all.

Dreary looking but comfortable temperatures in the Philadelphia area today.

Yesterday morning, I put about 2/3rds of a gallon of Drylok Extreme on the wall that leaked when the tropical storm came through a couple of weeks ago. The Extreme seems to be even heavier than the normal Drylok ("painting with concrete," says my wife), so it was quite a workout.

However, I felt okay (though tired) yesterday afternoon and evening … until … about 8:00 PM, when everything started to hurt. I went to bed earlier than usual and slept until it wasn't helping anymore. Today, I'm better—but I'm definitely not getting to coat #2 today. At least it looks decent.
