You guys aren't helping.
.. but thanks for the effort.

I can feel your pain Ken......not being able to accomplish the mission in the time frame allotted drives me nuts as well.  All these guys built like Donkey Kong picking on us who are built closer to the ground and more svelte!   :grin:

Your last word/wish is pretty far fetched.... :beercheers:

What are you talking about, my wife doesn't cook like you!  If she did, I'd be able to grab a breaker bar over my head and step off a step-stool and break the cylinder loose for Ken!  Of course I'd need help stepping up on that stool first!  :grin:

Well, I picked up the bumper, then did absolutely nothing the rest of the day. Had to scoot this evening. Wife threw me a gathering/party. Mexican food, was really nice. I am blessed! Grandkids ate all my ice cream desert! I didn't get a single bite!!!!!

So bumper is still in the back of the truck, guess I'll get to it tomorrow.

Grandkids snatched all the ICE CREAM!   :facepalm:  Glad you had a enjoyable day!

Anyone have to deal with an employee that just keeps breaking stuff? We have one hired man that is just so hard on stuff. He has trashed the pickup we gave him to drive. He is so paranoid that he is going mess something up that mess stuff up. In one day just hauling some trees that were pulled out of the fence line he managed to rip the filler neck out of the def tank, broke 2 hub caps, lost a mud flap and messed up 2 trailer lights. On a 2015 Kenworth. The list of machinery he is grounded form is growing. He better remove head from rear end or be looking for a new job.

Like we don't have people here on this site that are HARD on stuff!  Body Parts, Tractors, Chainsaws, Submersible Mowers, 4x4 Trucks loaned to little girls to drive.......the list is long and distinguished AND growing!

I don't know Don, sounds like a good idea......We've all seen the OUTHOUSE you built, so I'm thinking the smart money is betting on you to win anyway and then you get to do what you always do, tell yourself what to do!

If you ask me, the biker had it coming. I absolutely hate lane splitters. I know it’s legal in Kali, but they have all been making their way north and doing it here where it is NOT legal.

I'm not worried about it.

Its small potatoes, I'll figure it out.

I'm much more concerned about Andrew, the man who contacted me who is dying of cancer. He is the guy in the faith section I posted a thread on. He is in a bad way...

I feel really wrong thinking I have any problems worthy of note in view of his titanic suffering...
  Just posted on that - check when you can and relay it to Andrew please -

Please pass this along to him Don:

Andrew, thank you for your service to his Country and the sacrifices you've made in all of our behalf in protecting our Liberty and Freedoms granted us by the Constitution you swore to uphold and defend.  You put yourself in harms way and many citizens of this grateful Nation are in debt to you for that.  Please know that you are being lifted up in prayer by many of us here at RealMan multiple times throughout the day(s).

The only gift that I can bestow upon you that is worthy of the sacrifices that you've made, isn't even mine to give - Salvation through the blood of Christ - a free gift available to all who are willing to admit that we are a sinner, and accept Gods free gift of life everlasting.  One must only ask Christ to come into their lives, deliver them from their sins and accept his gift of salvation.  Life everlasting through Christ's redemption on the cross.  I suspect that you may have already done so, but it never hurts to remind ourselves of this glorious gift!

I pray that you find relief from all that troubles you and that our prayers for you, strengthen and bless you-  May you be lifted up upon the wings of eagles and soar free from pain and worry and hear the words directly from Christ, "well done, my good and faithful servant - rest easy, your watch is done."  For all that may be causing you worry - lay it at Christ's feet and release all stress about it - he will take care of it all!

I vote you buy a stand alone tent - less hassle, options are endless, stores easy, like in a roof top basket, along with cots and what not.  Cheaper, doesn't resemble tac-topper and doesn't limit where you can take the Burb!

Ken, was that a rhetorical statement?

Per Charles comments on mash bills - I know that I don't like Rye.....Makers uses Red Wheat instead, which tends to push their mash more towards bread dough.....I like bread, but not rye bread.

4 Roses has a bunch of variables, yeast strains etc. kinda like a Chemists like for the periodic table of elements.....I haven't found any of theirs that I care for much.

Fixing up the place to put on the market to sell - paint, new granite counters, under counter sink in the kitchen.  Set it all up a month out so wife can take two days off in a row.  Counter install yesterday, then supposed to follow with plumber next day after adhesives dry etc.  I sent detailed picture of undercounter situation so plumber knew what was needed.  Today, plumber shows with 2 hours scheduled - yep, the counter guys didn't send info to plumber and old drain is too high to re-install without lowering drain behind wall.  Can't get done today - earliest Monday.  NOT HAPPENING as work thing is what pays for this stuff!

Brother, a plumber to the rescue and told the counter place to refund install charges as they screwed the pooch!  People have become so STUPID that companies can't even plan properly for a common procedure without a screw-up.  This is with me knowing ahead of time that this wasn't just a re-attachment job!  If it was, I wouldn't PAY to have it done!  At least plumber they sent pointed out a few other screw-ups with attaching the dishwasher - counter install of attachment bracket screwed up so it wouldn't even have worked correctly!  So we're sinkless until Sunday afternoon some time!

What do average people do when they have no clue what's going on, considering someone with half a brain (me) plans ahead to prevent screw-ups and it STILL is FUBAR?

Integrity Arms - veteran owned and make a great - above average entry level gun with availability of improvements on up.  Don can vouch for the accuracy as he witnessed me wacking a full beverage can at 300m with 1 shot taken at range to connect.  I opted for some nicer options on my build, but all their basics are better than "basic" -

Similar story to Charles, on sunny day in the LML with heavy tint front window (match from factory tint on back ones) and a clown has been riding my posterior along this 2 lane (in summer, midday traffic with housewives with nothing better to do than lollygag around shopping in their cars).  Now, I don't drive slow in any sense of the word, but have learned through maturity and donations to Policeman's Dances that I never get to attend, that there's wisdom in patience until one can make a move.

Finally coming to a intersection that goes 3 lanes in each direction, I slide to the right where nobody ever seems to drive in said open lane, well the hemorrhoid is still there firmly affixed!  I leave the light with haste and this clown slides off my bumper passing me on the left where I signaled to him my status as his number one fan - NOW he's not in such a hurry!  Suddenly flips on the hidden gumballs lights and slides behind me as I turn into a strip mall parking lot.  Plain clothes Barney asks for the usual and proceeds to lecture ME about road rage etc. as i sit with the door open going nowhere.  I questioned him on his choice of following distance for the last several miles in a manner indicative of a compliant yet intelligent and knowledgeable witness in court.

Softening his posture, he inquires about my driving history etc. to which I reply only a warning out of state over a year ago and he returns to his car killing time while he figures a way out of the predicament he now finds himself in.   :police: Barney returned about 8 mins. later returning my license etc. wishing me a nice day........ :cool:
