Good Afternoon CGs!

No rain today. Sunny but a little cool. Still nice enough to drive with the windows down.

Marcus, sorry to hear about your little fisticuffs but glad you're alright. No one ever really wins a fight but seems you were on the better end.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Afternoon CGs!

Washed the car in the driveway yesterday morning. It needed it. Driving home I got caught in the rain...figures.

The rain wasn't the worst part. Freeway was under construction and 4 lanes cut down to 1. No place to get off. Complete standstill because they were moving bridge beams. My 30 minute drive took an hour and 20 minutes. Oh well.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Sorry to hear about Sue's cousin. But to be fair that is the way to go. I've seen too many people suffer through pain and misery. When it's my time just flip the switch and let me go.

Good Morning CGs!

Warm and sunny here. Had some rain yesterday but should be clear today. Doing little chores around the house, need to get the grass cut.

TB, sorry but no way I'd run those tires. Tires on the C4 were stored inside, no cracking, good tread - replaced them at 8 years. That's about the max on tires. Same with the Trans Am when I picked it up. Tires looked great but were 10 years old. Replaced the next day. As far as run flat or not I guess that's personal preference. I've never had run flat tires. I've heard the ride is a little stiffer but no personal experience.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Morning CGs!

A little cooler with some rain today. Not the 80* and sun I was enjoying yesterday. A side note of that is a convertible Corvette is one of the best pleasures in life

Wife did some gardening yesterday and I moved some landscaping bricks and rock. Seems fair...lol. But things are looking better. Always something to do.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Was a beautiful day here, warm and sunny. Did some yard work with the wife this morning. She's been happily planting her new flowers.

Drive the Vette to work with the top down. Can't beat that.

Hope everyone had a great day!

Good Morning CGs!

I was tipped off by someone about a very large nursery about an hour from us. So the wife and I decided to make a little day trip out of it. She is in plant heaven right now so I'm standing in the corner like a good husband. She could spend all day here, will probably end up being an hour and a half or so. Then we'll grab some lunch.

Glad to hear you're doing better, John.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Morning CGs!

Supposed to have some great weather Monday and Tuesday. Just another way to mess with my sinuses.

I've decided to take some time off from selling tools lately. Stock has dwindled down to almost nothing and I'm enjoying the time away from the phone posting and answering stupid questions. It was basically a part time job. I'll get back to it eventually.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Morning CGs!

Letty, sounds like you should ask for a raise. Everyone I know who owns a business is busy and can't find anyone to work. Guy I talked to yesterday said he got a $5,000 raise because another guy quit and the boss wanted to keep him. Didn't even ask for it.

As far as that bill it looks pretty broad. It will get challenged in court or the feds will withhold money roads, infrastructure, etc. It will be interesting to see.

Hope everyone has a great day!

John, hope the surgery went well.

Diagnosed the trunk switch on the Corvette as bad. Most likely because the PO put some aftermarket carbon fiber face on it. Seems to make the button stick and no real way to repair it. Ordered a replacement already.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Morning CGs!

This week some more students went back to school for in person learning. My daughter started Tuesday but my son's school didn't have room....huh? So they are split. She's at school and he's at home. Stupid.

I have had allstate for 20 years. Got my homeowners insurance bill and it went up $137 from last year. It's gone up every year and I've never had a claim. Guess it's time to look for a new company.

Hope everyone has a great day!

I didn't think we'd actually see snow today but I guess I lost that bet. Just flurries but a little bit sticking here and there.

Letty, I think I need a massage. Haven't had one since precovid.

Might need to find a new bone cruncher, sciatic nerve had been bugging me the past few days.

Hope everyone has a great day!

We have a little rain now, they said we might get snow tomorrow but we'll have to wait and see.

I wanted to drive the Corvette yesterday so I used some 3m trim tape and stuck the window back on the top. Worked surprisingly well for what it is. Hopefully the new top will be on soon.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Cool here. Hasn't prevented the grass from growing. I'd like to get the front cut, at least.

John, good luck with the sale. On a positive note the C4 prices have been creeping up lately so I hope you get what it's worth.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good luck finding some employees, Tommy. Good thing you're retired.

Was a nice day here weatherwise.

Impressive rig there, Marcus. Just in time for your summer tour of America stopping off in each state with a Guru member

Good luck with the phone co, Tommy. At least it's not plumbing.

Good Afternoon CGs!

Impressive purchase there, Marcus.

Trimmed a couple of tree branches this morning and cleaned those up. Then I pulled the carb off the mower and cleaned that in the ultrasonic tank. Bad boy fired right up and got the first cut of the season taken care of.

Wideband oxygen sensor in the C5 wasn't working. Crawled under the car and it seems the lock for the connector is missing. Pulled it apart and checked for corrosion and put it back together. Working now. I need to zip tie it together and should be good.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Thanks for the link, Tommy. I just left a one star review because yellow pages said you were open and when I stopped by you were closed and the sign said by appointment only....

Marcus, any luck finding the dog?

Good Morning CGs!

Yesterday was beautiful weather. 80° and sunny. Today is rain and clouds. Temperature isn't too bad though.

We got new blinds for both of the kids' rooms. Of course the brackets are different so when I took them off I had to repaint the window frame in RR#2's room. Once that dries I can hang the new one.

The wife and kids went to Wisconsin yesterday to visit the Dells for an overnight trip. She sent a lot of pictures and it seems like they're having fun. They will be back this afternoon.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Nice day here. Sunny and a little warmer than yesterday.

I'm in the middle of fixing one of the kitchen chairs now. Have to epoxy the joints which the kids damaged by climbing on the chair rungs. Always something.

Good Afternoon CGs!

This morning we all went to my mom's house for her bday. We bought her a new gliding chair. RR#2 and I assembled it for her. Then I got on the roof and cleaned out the gutters. Then I trimmed a couple of broken tree branches, fixed the outside deck lights, and reattached a piece of siding j-channel. Mom was happy. Then we went to the cemetery and visited my dad and my wife's grandmother. Getting in a workout now.

Hope everyone has a great day!

End of the month already. Can't believe it.

Chilly and windy here. Supposed to be in the 40s. This weekend should be 70s, though.

Tire rack arrived yesterday. Got that put up this morning without any issues. Looks good, seems like it will do the trick.

New convertible top is scheduled for delivery today. Hopefully I can get that installed soon.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Must be a sleepy Monday because there was no chat thread.

Tommy, I'll take your "hot" weather, sure beats the crap we've got here. Up/down/up/down. Currently down.

Impatiently waiting for the new top to arrive so I can get it installed. Can't really drive the Vette right now with the rear glass window mostly detached. Top is currently down but it's a little chilly still.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Not 80s here but should be a decent day.

Ordered a new top from RPI. It's made by Kee and distributed by Corvette America but they had the best price I found. Hopefully here at the end of next week.

Bob, sorry to hear about your work woes. Hopefully things improve for you.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good thing you're retired, Tommy, or you wouldn't have time for all of that

For any one keeping track I'm still on the diet. It's going well. Haven't been on a scale once since Feb 1st. I'd estimate about 20 lbs, though.

Shopping around for a new top for the Vette. Think I found a good vendor. Update tomorrow.

Hope everyone had a great day!

Good Afternoon CGs!

Drove the Vette the past few days. When I bought it I knew that the rear window of the convertible top was coming loose and needed to be reglued. Because the top is starting to show its age and has some stains I decided that I would rather just replace the whole thing. So I didn't glue it over the winter. Of course yesterday it started to separate and right now it's about 75% off so I guess it's time for a new top. I'll try to get a new one ordered in the next couple of days.

Very nice picture you posted yesterday, Tommy.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Morning CGs!

Been crazy busy here the past week. Work, kids, house, etc. No excuse, should have checked in sooner.

Got some new shelves built in the garage. Not 100% done yet but it's a start. Cost of 2x4s is insane. I used up what I had and I need to pick up a few more this week. Hopefully then I'll be "organized" if that's possible.

After 3 months of sluggish tool sales I had a bang up weekend and sold about 1/2 of my entire inventory. Now I have to restock but there's nothing to restock with. Sourcing is the hardest part right now.

Weather is screwy, I'm just waiting for spring.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Had a fantastic corned beef reuben sandwich for dinner to celebrate St Patty's Day.

Was supposed to build some shelves in the garage tonight with my BIL. He came by and dropped off his trailer but it was raining pretty good so we couldn't set up the table saw. He'll be back tomorrow so hopefully we can get it done.

Hope everyone had a great day!

Good Morning CGs!

If you can believe it we got some snow and hail on Monday. Nothing like Colorado but I was already in spring mode.

Corvette weather is coming soon.

As promised here are a couple of photos of the new box. 84" epiq with stainless power top, hutch, and side locker. It's about 90% full as it sits. Very nice box and I'm lucky to be in a position to have it.

Good Morning CGs!

Sorry I've been mia a few days. I've been working in the garage the whole week disassembling the "permanent" shelves I built 10 years ago and getting them ready to move to the other side. All of this is to fit a bigger toolbox into the space. Something I never imagined 10 years ago. I'll post pictures once everything is done.

Hope everyone has a great day!

That's a very nice Tribute, Marcus. I'm sorry to hear about your mother but glad she's at peace.

Good Morning CGs!

Tommy, if you were me you'd still be complaining that the wife told you to spread mulch and you'd be yelling at the kids to go outside and grab a shovel.

Got the Corvette off the rollers and out from under the cover. Battery was dead. I had it on a tender. Either the tender went bad or there was a draw. Checked for a draw last night but couldn't find one. You know how electrical gremlins can be.

Sunny and warm today. Won't be driving the Corvette yet, still too much powderized salt on the roads.

Hope everyone has a great day!

I haven't been to harbor freight in quite a while. Don't really need much from there at this point. Recently they changed their coupon policy and got rid of the 20% coupons. They just started reintroducing them but you have to use the inside track club to get 20% - regular customers get 10%. Luckily my buddy has a membership so we stopped over there this morning and got a new floor jack. My old one wouldn't fit under the new Corvette. This new one is nice and has an additional 3/4" clearance over the old one. (And a photo comparing it to the old jack)

Good Morning CGs!

The sun is hiding today and there's a light mist of rain coming down. Good, get rid of the salt so I can drive my Corvette.

After a month of strict dieting the wife and I went out to lunch yesterday. Just the two of us and it was very refreshing to be out and to be able to dine in at a restaurant. Had some onion rings and a few beers. The rest was chicken and broccoli so I didn't go too crazy. But a nice cheat meal every once in a while is a good escape. I'll probably keep this up a little while longer.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Afternoon CGs!

Another warmish day here. Snow continues to melt. Had some rain last night which helped clean the salt off the roads. Saw a few Corvettes out there today. I'm almost ready...soon.

Marcus, sorry to hear about the situation with your mom. Hope it comes to a peaceful resolution.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Afternoon CGs!

The sun is shining again today. Not quite as warm but a welcome visitor. Snow melting means one day closer to Corvette weather.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Afternoon CGs!

Glad the wife is doing better, TB.

Snow is slowly diminishing here. I went and cleaned up the curbs in front of the house so you can park like a normal person.

Got the cars washed today. Wonder how long they'll stay clean?

Hope everyone has a great day!

Working in the yard today with two helpers.


So if you help the helpers are you a helper's helper or a helpers' helper?

Good Evening CGs!

Had a other nice day here in the mid 40s with sun. It went away a little earlier than I would have liked. Cloudy now, not sure if it will rain later. A plus side of the warmth is the dog found a few bare spots of grass. He was happy.

Hope everyone had a great day!
