Good Morning CGs!

The weekend is finally here. I'm ready for it.

Weather has been nuts here. Was in the 60s a couple days ago and then we had an inch of nasty ice/snow mix yesterday. Supposed to be warm again tomorrow and next week. Mother nature seems confused.

I'm itching to get the cars out, guess I better get started working on them.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Good Afternoon CGs!

Sorry to hear about Sue, hope she feels better soon.

Electrical gremlins are no fun. My C4 didn't have any but sometimes my C5 will have a random intermittent drain that will kill the battery. I've spent hours chasing it down and nothing found.

Hope everyone had a great day!

Good Afternoon CGS!

Cold but sunny day. Stayed up late watching a movie with the kids and I'm dragging butt right now.

Went to the outlaws' this morning because the stove burner isn't working. One of them fancy 'lectric stoves. Glass top stoves are a PIA. Took it apart and found the heating element was burnt out, exactly what I suspected. It's 20 years old at this point. I've already replaced one element and one switch. New part is $100, new stove is $800. They opted for new part so I ordered that online.

Good luck with the cousin, Letty.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Cooled off here again, low 20s today and it feels like it.

RR#2 had a band solo contest this morning at school. It's a district wide deal. He played well (parents can sit in) and he got first class so he was happy. Both kids are there now helping out for the afternoon to get their service hours.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Morning CGs!

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone.

No flowers today but I picked up a couple of boxes of turtle candies. I think the wife prefers the candy over the flowers. Who doesn't like candy, right?

Still chilly here but it's February. Can't wait for the weather to start to turn.

Corvette is still torn apart with no progress. I'll get it done.... promise.

Hope everyone has a great day!

That truck would fit right in around here. Surprisingly no snow on the ground, though. We do have some cold temps but not terrible - low 40s right now, 30 overnight.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Hope you win big at the casino, TB. I always win big at the buffet. I have no problem getting my money's worth.

No plans on watching the big game myself. No interest in that.

"LOL They have Sue down. #4


https://share.newsbreak.com/63jtn9ls"

Definitely sounded like an AI review where the computer just summarizes the reviews on the page and makes a paragraph. The fact that Lowes was #1 is all you need to know.

Happy birthday to Rosie. And sorry to hear about your thumb. Makes you want to look into one of those auto retracting saws. I've seen the videos and they look quite impressive.

Hope everyone had a great day!

Good Morning CGs!

Still not used to writing 2024 yet. I guess by the time I'm used to it we'll be writing 2025.

Should be sunny and I'm the lower 40s today. They are saying upper 50s by mid-week but I'll believe it when I see it.

The headlights on the accord were getting pretty bad with the crazing/frosting on the plastic. Took it to Dave's shop the other day and he polished them. Just about good as new. I recommend it if your lights are getting hazy.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Sun is out and it looks nice out. Still cold at night when I'm lurking around.

Broken ribs are no fun, Gris. Hope the wife feels better soon.

TB, the dells are a nice place to visit. We go every summer, sometimes twice.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Hard to believe it's the end of the month. It's flown by, huh?

Midnight shift isn't treating me too well. Tough on the mind and body. I'm tired all of the time. Wife and kids don't like it, either. Hopefully won't be too much longer.

The work on the Corvette is stalled. Hard to find motivation when you're tired all the time. Did get the transmission fluid changed in the Honda yesterday, though. I was experiencing some torque converter shudder and that seems to be the cure.

Tommy, hope the healing comes quick.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Morning CGs!

Another cold and dreary day here. We've had freezing rain the past couple of days and it's miserable.

TB, hope you're feeling better with the medicine. On that topic, took RR#1 to the quick clinic Sunday afternoon because he wasn't feeling well. Swabs came back as influenza A and strep at the same time. Great. So he's missing school this week which he doesn't seem to mind. He's quarantined and we're hoping the bug doesn't get passed around.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Cold and rainy here as well. Was freezing rain this morning but it's warmed up just a hair. Car was covered in a sheet of ice. I did have enough salt to cover the driveway and sidewalk so I'm in good shape.

Started working on the Corvette yesterday for the radio swap. It's actually a radio and bezel swap, move gauges to a pillar set up, install sub, back up camera, etc. already a PIA because the way the gauge wiring is set up it's too short in the cabin (the slack is in the engine bay and I have to move stuff to make it work). Also had to order a new backup camera since I used the one I had in the Camaro and forgot to reorder. Always something. So everything is apart and I've run a few wires. That's it. It will go quicker at least when I'm ready to go.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Another cold day in the negatives here. Kids will have e-learning due to the weather. They never cancelled school when I was a kid but we didn't have laptops like the Jetsons, either.

I switched back to midnight shift yesterday so I'll pop in here and there to see how everyone is doing.

TB - hope you're feeling better.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Morning CGs!

The roads were pretty clear this morning driving in to work. Can't say the same for tomorrow based on what the news is reporting. The whole region is expecting 8-12" of nasty snow throughout the morning and day. Hopefully the plows are out early and often. Luckily for me the snow tires do a fantastic job of cutting through just about anything. Doesn't help with the other drivers on the road, though.

Having some serious car withdrawals right now. Is it spring yet?

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Morning CGs!

We got hit with a pretty good storm yesterday. Lots of wet and heavy snow and slush. Can't complain since December was basically snow-free. We're supposed to be ok today and tomorrow with some flurries here and there. Friday we're supposed to get hit hard again. Can't wait.

Stay warm, Gurus.

Hope everyone has a great day!

A cold start to the day. More flurries are expected off and on. I did get the snow tires swapped over on the Honda yesterday so I guess I'm ready.

Kids are back to school tomorrow so they'll be back on a normal schedule. No more staying up late and sleeping in.

Might take them to see a movie later.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Well done, Marcus! The only real question I have is did Doc get her blender back?

We finally had a measurable snowfall overnight. I was up shoveling early this morning and it was wet and heavy. Forecast the next two weeks is snow almost every day. I got the snow tires on the Honda swapped over so I should be alright.

Hope everyone had a great day!

Good Morning CGs!

I have a few days off to recharge my batteries. I think I need it. Kids don't go back to school until Monday. We wanted to sneak away for a couple of days to somewhere warm but RR#1 has a pep band concert on Friday night. That damn band is the bane of my existence.

Tommy, sorry to hear there's no update on your son. But the offer on the nursery sounds very promising.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Morning CGs!

It will take a while to get used to writing 2024 now. Happens every year, though. Nothing new.

BIL/SIL hosted dinner last night. Call it a New Year's celebration but it's because they couldn't host Christmas Day due to the flu. Medium sized gathering, probably 20 people. Food was good but I was tired by the end of it and cut out early.

Chilly here but still no snow other than the flurries we had the other day. Best winter I've ever had (I hate snow like TB hates plumbing).

Hope everyone has a great day!

Hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable New Year's Eve. The kids stayed up late but I was off to bed early. Did wake up briefly around midnight from the fireworks but fell back asleep pretty quickly.

2024 already? Time marches on. Happy New Year to all.

As was once said to Charlie Brown, you're a good man, TB.

Took the kids to the theater to see a movie, it's our NYE tradition. We plan on watching Ford vs Ferrari tonight. Haven't seen it yet but I've heard it's a good movie.

Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable evening!

I could use a massage myself, TB. Lower back is better but I still wake up with a little pain before I stretch out.

Tommy, what is fueling the desire to sell? Not driving them enough or what? I'm sure I'll be there one day, too. I agree with buying a car with a warranty, though. A nice new C8 would look good in the driveway.

Got some errands to run and some out of town friends to hook up with later.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Morning CGs!

Merry Christmas to everyone. Not very Christmas-y here with temps in the 50s today but you don't see me complaining.

Did traditional Christmas Eve dinner last night at the in-laws' house and opened presents. Too much as usual. Christmas dinner tonight at our house and it will be day two of the same...too much food and too many gifts. But we are lucky and our family enjoys sharing because of it. I did invite one of the kids from work to dinner last night because he didn't have anywhere to go. He declined but I'll offer again today.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Sorry to hear about the break in, Tommy. Any offender info?

Same to you Marcus but I wouldn't drive a Kia / Hyundai with a key start if you gave it to me for free. Easy to steal in under 30 seconds like back in the 80s.

It's been raining here most of the day. Should have more rain this weekend.

Hope everyone had a great day!

Every time my wife and I get gift cards for each other we forget to use them (outside of her Starbucks cards).

RR#1 went to the hairdresser today and cut 14" off to donate to locks for love. A very selfless thing. Now she's upset because it's short (still shoulder length). The life of a teenage girl.

Hope everyone had a great day!

Chilly here, as well. I would take 51 but we won't see that.

Doctor visit was good yesterday, all values in normal range. Guess I'm good for the next 8-10 years

A cool start to the day with temperatures dropping from here. I don't think that's how it's supposed to work. Oh well.

I have a check up at the doctor's office this morning. Nothing major the wife wanted me to get a physical. Wives always meddling in our health and well being. Sheesh.

Have some errands to run after that.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Rainy morning to start the day, a carry over from yesterday. Should be in the low to mid 40s today. Not bad for December.

Got the reman alternator installed on the Corvette last night. It's up an running. No chrome case as of right now but that can come down the road.

Hope everyone has a great day!

The month is half over. Is your Christmas shopping done?

We've had unseasonably warm weather. It was 55 yesterday but will cool off a bit coming up. No complaints here.

Finally got a replacement alternator from my guy. Hopefully this does the trick. Haven't had a chance to install it yet.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Cold here. Took the dog for a walk this morning and it froze me down to my bones. Guess that's winter.

Good Evening CGs!

Had a multi-state taekwondo training day today. Almost 200 kids from 7 states and Canada in one spot. Good experience. Jacob did alright. I was hoping seeing some top tier kids would light a little fire under his butt but he's still not there yet. It's not a technical skill issue, it's a drive / desire / aggressiveness issue. He'll get there one day but everyone is different.

Letty, any win is a good win in my book.

Marcus, speaking of haircuts the wife took Jacob to my new barber this week. Same thing, guy is about 75 years old. She said she had never seen someone cut hair that fast. That's how it was done. Hard to find nowadays.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Sorry it's been a long stretch without logging on.

Gris, sorry to hear about your friend. That's a tough deal. But happy belated birthday to you.

Tommy, I do all of my shopping online. Just easier.

Daughter had opening weekend for her first high school musical. She was ensemble with a small part but did well. I think she enjoyed herself and all the kids worked their butts off for practice and did a great job. I went this afternoon and the wife is going this evening.

Hope everyone had a great day!

Gloomy and rainy here as well. Can't believe it's December already. Year end is right around the corner.

Wildwoods are probably around $2500 for that setup. Now is when Tommy can complain about the price and tell us when he started driving they used their feet to stop but Wilma was always yelling at him anyway.

Had TKD class this morning. A couple of really good kids in there, a couple of average ones. I can see the really good ones going far.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Afternoon CGs!

It was cold this morning but the sun has peeked out and it's about 40 now. No 61 like someone has but I'll still take it.

Supposed to go out with the wife for dinner tonight. Haven't done that in a while. Should be nice.

Hope everyone had a great day!

Good Afternoon CGs!

Another cold day here, was 15* when I walked out of the house. Not much better now but at least the sun is out.

Going back and forth with the wife about what she wants for Xmas. Always a struggle every year. Looks like I found a couple of things, at least.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Woke up to cold weather and snow. It's been snowing lightly all day long. Cloudy and glum. I guess winter is here. I didn't get a chance to do a final wash and winterization for all of the cars. Oh well. I'll make do with what I have.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Good Morning CGs!

Weather has turned cold here. We were enjoying days in the lower 50s with sunshine but now it's 30s. I don't like it. One day I'll be able to leave this place. One day....

Still waiting on a part for the alternator so the Vette is still down. It's time to put it away anyway but I wanted one last wash and fill up. Oh well.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Evening CGs!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. We took a little trip to St Louis over the past couple of days. Watched the parade this morning and then drove home. Just finished a little dinner with just the four of us. It's been a good couple of days.

Hope everyone enjoyed the day!

Good Afternoon CGs!

Sorry I've been busy this week and have not checked in. I will have to catch up on posts later.

My back is improving a little bit after the accident. Still seeing the chiropractor. The insurance company is not in any hurry to fix my car. They were supposed to call me this week but never did. I left a voicemail but haven't heard back yet.

I drove the Corvette to work the other morning. Got a mile or two away from the house and the alternator took a crap. Of course I was already on the freeway and I had to make a big loop around. I was able to nurse it back home and pulled in the garage with about 9 volts left so I barely made it. The alternator is at the rebuilder right now and he said the inside is fried and he can't figure out why. Hopefully we can fix it with parts otherwise I need a new one.

Hope everyone had a great day!

Good Evening CGs,

TB, sorry to hear the news about your father-in-law.

Competition went ok yesterday. He was pretty nervous and wasn't aggressive during his sparring matches like I told him to be. Can't teach that, just something you're born with or you learn over time. Hopefully it will come to him. I was still proud of him for his first time and he came home with a couple of medals so he was happy.

Hope everyone had a great day!

Happy daylight savings time CGs!

Can't stand the changing of the clocks. Something we need to do away with.

RR#2 has a tkd tournament today, his first ever. Normally you start a little sooner but covid messed everything up. He seems a little disinterested so hopefully he steps up when it's time to perform. He has the potential to do well, it's up to him.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Evening CGs!

I've been busy this week. Finally got a call back from their insurance company for the claim. It's open and pending but moving slow. Got the estimate done yesterday from their independent appraiser but haven't heard back yet. My back has been hurting so I've been to the chiropractor twice this week and made two more appointments for next week. They can pay for that, too.

Have to cut back on TKD classes. I'll try to teach a couple but won't be able to participate.

Hope everyone had a great day!

Good Evening CGs!

Also cool here, today. We have the heat turned on in the house but no snow yet. I'll be driving the Corvette until that time. It did rain a bit today but the car wash will take care of that.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Good Evening CGs!

RR#1 did some driving today. She's still slightly nervous but doing alright. Time heals all wounds.

Hope everyone had a great day!
