Got much needed rain Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Yeah folks at Bikes, Blues & BBQ got wet but we needed the rain none the less. Don't guess anyone in this chapter happened to head up there? Not my type of thing.

Your thinking nervous. How about as tired as a fat man on a treadmill chasing after Twinkies for two hours?

But you folks do such a fine job

Days are getting shorter, now I'm down to about an hour of usable daylight a day after work, and the last 30 minutes of that are like a skeeter buffet.

I guess I need to get up early and get in a few hours in before work.

Today was the first time in months that I got home at/before 1700. Almost forgot what the house was like when you beat everyone home in the afternoon.

Well, it goes from summer to winter within a few weeks...so much for fall. Seen in the forecast this morning low '40s to mid '30s in places for overnight lows this coming weekend. The weather guessers are predicting that some spots in NWA not only will have frost Sunday & Monday morning...but may actually get to/below freezing.

If it's one of those kind of parties that the cops showed up....SEVERAL times...better not.

Joe, are you going to put one of those 10k pound two-post lifts in your new shop?

Well not anytime soon, although I have been scoping them out.... if I have any money any time soon its going into A/C..

These seem to be some of the most well made, and one of the few still made in the US.

Not even a week into the new month...and this thread has already died. Went to Marvell, AR this weekend. For someone not from that part of the state it was interesting to watch the cotton harvest "in action". Not sure what kind of weather we got up here Friday/Saturday at the house...but I know there was some spring like thunderstorms at the trailer in Brinkley.

As in HVAC or compressed air? If it's HVAC, sounds like your trying to create a better doghouse and a place to work on the trucks is just an added benefit.

I've had company since Thursday. Haven't been on much.

Took the wife rock climbing up pinnacle mountain this morning, then went to Cotham's for a hubcap burger for lunch..... then gave her a ring.

23 years ago today we started this climb. Still having a great time just hanging out together.
