Mornin'. 29.8f. Time to fire up another work week. Gotta go out to the shop and clean up the west end, stack tables, etc. around the trailer so I have enough room to get the Police trailer in for lettering. Hey, maybe it'll get warm enough to do that one outside too. :?:

Hey Gary, 46 - 47 on Wed. and Thurs.
42/42 so that is it with sunshine thrown in so feels like... 43! Sharon came down with a virus so it was drinks, drugs and sleepy time yesterday for her. So far today more of the same till it goes away. Yesterday I helped her hold the couch down but I can't do that too much or I will go crazy so I'm on the computer looking up an ignition switch for the S 10. Other things on the HD list and we will take those into consideration for the rest of the afternoon. Calling for 50's on Thursday. Wow!! :D :D :D

Got the trailer done. It's 5:15, @ 34°f, but I lettered it in the shop, so it was actually about 70°f. 8)

I met with the truck parking guy about putting up the signs. I was the first guy to drive through the new electronic gate and on a brand new concrete entrance road. I felt so special. :lol:
Bad news is the (300) U-clamps he bought don't have enough threads to tighten up on the posts (rebar rods in reality). So, I have to take off for Big-R tonight to get washers to stack on the U-Bolts. :oops: They sell nuts, bolts & washers by the pound, so they're way cheaper. So, I spoz' I better get on the road. :?

25.5°f. - headed for 48°f and sunny today. And I'm headed to the truck parking lot to see how many of the 105 signs I can get installed today. Got to deliver the police trailer first and do a couple little odds N ends first. That should give the temps. a chance to climb a little.

Morning folkz. 30/38 today with partly sunny skies. Yesterday when I took Sharon to the doctor we came out and there was a really good looking car parked behind the Honda. The lines were just beautiful and I thought to myself that it had to be expensive and when I got to it I found it was a new, all black Aston Martin sedan. Wow, don't see much of that around here in Amish country too often. I left some drool marks on it as I passed by. We didn't do much yesterday as Sharon was still nursing the virus she obtained from her bus trip to Biltmore. I did a bunch of web surfing while she was on snooze patrol. Have a trade deal in the works for the 84 Chevy truck for a Harley Davidson. We will see if it works out. :D :D :D

Gggrrrrrrrr. Don't make me come out there Zappy!!!!!!!!!!!! :x :x :x :x :x
22/47 for the day. Yesterday I was near McDonald's and I saw a limo pull in and thought that was a little strange. But to my amazement a group of little children, laughing and squealing, poured out of the limo with a few adults to have lunch at MikeyDs. That made my day. Sharon was off to lunch with her gal pals and I took the S 10 out for a spin to check out the ignition situation. The locksmith lubed the ignition up with something called Houdini Spray and the ignition has never worked so good. I don't think I will need a new lock assembly as this stuff is amazing. Made for locking mechanisms and really works like Houdini, I ordered a spray can on Amazon. All my automotive and household locks will get a shot when it arrives, maybe I can inject some into the failing parts of my body? Oh nope, it says on the can "Not for use on old guy parts." Sharon and I are going for breakfast and to church later in the afternoon but the schedule is open otherwise. :D :D :D
