  1. Well either way here was a nice Salute to the front line workers. Enjoy! (Did you see it!!??)

    No we didn't see I here in Glendale.  We heard the noise from the jets but they were a little off track for us.  Usually they rendezvous over Lake Pleasant and come right over our house on their way to Phoenix.  This time they took a little different track.  I enjoyed your vid though.  Tks.......

    You were meant to get stuck otherwise you might not have stop and found the jackpot!

    I agree with you Skip, There are times in the past that things have happened to hamper what I was doing an turned out to be a God send in disguise.  Once when the brand new car my family and I were riding in going on a weekend holiday showed the oil was dry I pulled over an began kicking tires and cussing a blue streak.  Found nothing wrong and continued on after a half hour of monkeying around.  A couple of miles up the road there were cars and pickups all crashed together and bodies laying on the highway in weird positions.  We were waived past and continued on but stopped to thank God for a faulty oil pressure gage. The thing decided to work again and as long as I had that station wagon it never did go off again.  

    I do think that BMc's luck was a little more than just luck, he had a helping hand.  Always look for something good to come out of a little setback.  :yesss:

    Went to the mountain down south near Tucson and there was still snow with temperatures in the low 60's 

    Man Pat, what more would you want?  Do you want me to go along with you and show you how?

  4. Matt, don't get sucked in by Bob.  He just wants to poke you with a stick to see just how far you will jump.  He's bee doing it for years and has been admonished it for many times.  You just have to ignore folks like that.  Watch me when he reads this and try's to poke me a bit.  :poostorm:

    When a MODERATOr starts posting political crap! Its time for them not to be a Moderator!  you are not going to win with someone that thinks they are RIGHT all the time! Grubstake

    I agree wholeheartedly with that, but could you name a moderator that has done such and provide any evidence.  I think that the moderators here have done a pretty good job of policing the forum.  Maybe they have been a little too lenient for my idea of a good show but if it ran my way I'd have to step on a couple of really big feet.

    Bill or Skip should create a new section called POLITICS ONLY.

    I'm all for that, or just let these people that will never learn have the Lounge and create a new section for what the Lounge was intended for.  Birthdays, Death notices, Stories about instances, General talk, etc.  The politicos should have a place of their own to pontificate their beliefs to other politicos who will never change their beliefs.  I swore that I wouldn't visit the Lounge again but there was a lot I was missing.  This fighting to try to change each other minds about political views is sickening.  It is boring a lot of guys who are sick of it and don't visit the Lounge anymore and miss some important events that are going on.  Let's get back to normal and leave the 'Haters' to their own demise.

  7. Dave, you could have gotten my 1968 Square Back I sold a couple of weeks ago.  Would have given you a real deal bro.  It did need an awful lot of body work but the engine was just overhauled before I  let it set.  :brows:

  8. Hey old man, take care of yourself and thanks for thinking of others.  We won't make it to Quartzsite either this year due to serious family sickness.  I'll save your shot of Crown Royal for next time.  :oregonian_winesmiley:

  9. I remember back in the 1930's and 40's we kids weren't allowed to go into any stores or public buildings of any kind for fear of the Polio Scourge.  If you wanted a popsicle or ice cream cone you waited outside of the store while the soda jerk handed you're cone around the screen door to you and you paid him.  Things like county fairs were prohibited along with any public function like swimming pools or holes, school yards, parks, etc.  There was actually nothing for a kid to do in those days.  The president also caught the disease which finally killed him during WWII.  I lost a couple of friends and there were three in my family that were crippled from it.  For some reason they were all male.  That disease went on for many years and thousand died or were severely cripple from it. Finally the Salk Vaccine came out and I took my kids in for a sugar cube with a drop of vaccine on it to be inoculated with it.  Remember the 'March of Dimes'

    Tom, that was before they started using glossy paper...😇😇

    Fred you're right, that was a curse when they started using that.  There were still some softer pages but you avoided the glossy pictures.  I heard that the catalog was made originally especially for that reason, to put in the out house and read while...………….  But soon after we modernized and went inside.  I shed a tear when they blew up the old Sears catalog building on Roosevelt Blvd. outside of Philly.  It was the end of an era and now Sears is gone completely.  I got the explosion somewhere on film, got to get it out and watch it again.    :th_panic:

    The shelves have been empty in my area for a couple of weeks now & we're down to our last roll of TP here at home. So it looks like I'm going to have to stay home and hunt toilet paper instead of gold nuggets.

    Back in the day we used the Sears Catalog in the out house.  There should be enough trash magazines coming to the house to help out till the pandemic is over.  :thumbsupanim

  12. Yeah Skip, he's hiding his real age.  He is now officially pushing the big six-o and you know what that means.  He's been one hell of a great son and I'm so proud of him.  But I never thought that he would make it this far doing all the risky and duovirus things that young-un does.  :ROFL:

  14. Happy Birthday Son.  Remember that you are working on the big '60' and that's when the aches and pains really start.  Keep it up and you could become just like me...…………...    :thumbsupanim
