Super news Mike....
I am going through the wait and see game right now too. Hopefully all is still good here as well.

Thanks Bob. I will be praying for you as well! Hang in there.



Had the colonoscopy  yesterday, everything ok, full ct scan next month

Well those are always a treat but great news!  :likebutton: Good luck on the CT scan.

Cleaned, painted and installed. Did way to much cleaning for a flip, but thats me.

Getting the drums turned and had to get longer lug nuts for the 14mm studs. Drive line matced up to boot.

Got another interested in it and the guy at O'Riely's turning the drum said I should ask more.

You clean up nicely!  :likebutton:

If you have a chance after you get some trigger time in, would you like to drop some reviews in the review thread?

Will do. The weather is terrible here now so hopefully I can get out before Winter blows in. Oh yeah.. I should buy some shells for it. I only have 12ga.

Bob I would love to have a great gun dealer around here but there isn't any. The one we did have just shut down. He never had much of a gun selection and always made you feel like you were interrupting their chit chat session to ask a question. So I never went back. I even bought a gun there and it was still a weird vibe. Glad you have a good local one.

New SigP365

Picked up the new 9mm I have been stalking on YouTube and the blogs lately. Really small!

Will let you know how it shoots.

I also stopped by the auction house on the way home and picked up a Ruger Red Label 20 gauge I bought via internet auction on Saturday. Sight unseen I first thought the lower barrel what shot out but after many good scrubbings with Hoppes it was just dirty. You can see some use but not bad.

Want to try and get my son into Sporting Clays.

New family addition:

Bangalore fighting dog!

Is the shepherd still around?
I never mentioned this, but a couple months ago Scout bit my youngest grand daughter in her face. It was awful. She needed surgery right away, but got away with 40 stitches. Believe me it was a terrible thing. The next day I took Scout to Animal control. They evaluated the dog and told us he was dangerous. Further they were not willing to release him to any family anywhere. He was put down after 10 days.
You may recall I was a bit quiet on the forum
It was a bad and trying time. Kat wanted to do something to help me deal with the bite and losing my friend. Scout. So she went on this fanatical search for the perfect, family oriented, and safe, companion dog. She came up with the Bernese Mountain Dog from Switzerland. She located a litter and the rest is history.
That is so sad on many levels. Hopefully your granddaughter is doing fine. Sorry it turned out that way.

Mine is Outdoor Life. Reminds me of my grandfather and the "This Happened to Me" stories in them. When I was just a kid we used to spend summers with our Grandparents in Rifle Colorado. He worked as a lineman for Western Slope Gas company and he would take us along to check all of the gas wells around the western slope. 4 Wheel drive into many of them. We always had a .22 with us and shot rabbits or trees. Ate lunch by the streams. He always seemed to have a much better story than the current Outdoor Life one.

Yeah the Kubota was watching. I had a lot of scrap wood next to the garage that I cut up and got cleaned up. Used the loader to haul it to the back yard a fire pit.

What was your source for the ring?


Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
TRN. I found it local up here via Craigslist. Picked it up at a guys house that had 5 or 6 sitting around. I don?t think I paid over $150 for it. It is about 5 feet across. Honestly too big unless you have a huge fire.

Thumbs up on the fire. What?s the metal part of the pit?


Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
It is a 3/8" thick rolled steel ring that is angled in at about 20% so there is a gap between it and the block. Then just added some sand in the bottom to build it up a little.



Pooch approved also.

So as mentioned. Blasting is an option but it doesn?t work so well on sticky paint. Gums up the system,   I had never thought of burning it off,

I got him intouch with a guy who wants to simply recoat and call it China.   I don?t agree but it?s not my call.   Like you all said. He dug his own hole.

Dave, I would have him look at Dustless Blasting. Should peel it right off and not damage the floor.

Nice project! Echo what Bobby said that up here in MN there are many of those and they work great even in 20 below weather. Lots of shops with in floor heat run those also.

Plus added bonus you can position it so that your favorite liberal neighbor is downwind and can enjoy the aroma.  :beercheers:

I remember precisely where I was and what I was doing on that day. Working at the home office of the trucking company in Dallas. Scrambled to find a TV to plug in and watch in real time what was going on. Then was working on options to re route and warehouse freight that was shutdown. Then how to get drivers back home while all of it was going on.

Charles, my wife picked out her last vehicle after driving 30 different vehicles. No one in the family liked it (which we told her b4 we bought it btw). I don?t think she really liked it either, truth be told. Bought her this 4Runner & everyone is happy. The cherry on top was her telling me I?m just going to let you choose from now on. We love our Toyota so far.....


Oh & im officially 41 today, so there?s that.

Nate. I didn?t use the meta data. I used to live in Mullica Hill,NJ and used to drive by the stadium all the time. Then I saw the Lawrence street sign and could tell you were getting on I76 

I?ll have to look into your new pic but my first guess would be Atlantic City. There is a parking lot with a bunch on limos staged there. You only see that near NYC or casinos.

Need more investigation. Lol

Well I have a new one. Last night my 16 year old son was warming up for his very first High School Varsity league soccer game and gets knocked to the ground. Spent a few hours in the emergency room with a broken collar bone. Will definitely need surgery. Bummer is he will miss the entire season in his Junior year and won't be available for college scouts. Will have to keep hitting the books for scholarships. Lol.

Tell your son, I know his pain.  Been there, done that, got the T-shirt.  Very disheartening initially. Also very painful.  Takes a year to heal.  DO NOT RUSH IT!  Do yhe excersizes in PT and he'll be laughing about this next year.

Don, Sophie and I have a cup together on the weekends too. mostly milk and chocolate syrup, but she does like here little coffee here and there. I got her fishing with me the other night and boy did I open a can of worms, (figuratively). I didn't have a rod for here so I broke out my light tackle trout rod/spinning real combo and she figured out how to cast with the bale correctly in 3 tries. the surf perch were all over the place, so we started catch and release for about 2 hrs. she casts straight, and about 30 yards consistently. So I bought her 1st rod and reel combo, a bunch of salmon gear and we have a date Saturday and Sunday morning on the little boat. Hopefully the smoke clears so it's not so nasty out. Looking forward to coffee and fishing with my daughter until soapbox comes around again.

Sounds like a perfect weekend!  :likebutton:

Nate's comment on my other post reminded me that I should do a quick update on my cancer BS. Your prayers have worked so thank you very much. I'm not in the clear yet but pretty good prognosis. My last PET scan came up mostly "resolved". SO that is very good news. I have a followup PET scan in early October to see if any of the areas come back. SO if I get an all clear in October I will be very happy. Right now based on my history I basically go from waiting for the next shoe to drop to happy.

They let me off of Chemo for about a month now and will wait until the October results to see if I need to go back on Chemo. So now just getting my strength back and might be able to live rather than coping.  :beercheers: Oh and I do have some peach fuzz growing back. Hopefully I can keep it for winter. LOL I still have lingering issues from the radiation and chemo from Neuropathy in my feet and hands to swallowing solid foods. But not a big deal to handle.

Thanks again for all the prayers. I have to say it has been very humbling all of the support I have received even from places I didn't  even know existed.
