Being prior military and govt....I never guess lol, cause if i guessed right, they wouldvsend me somewhere worse.....Laredo Texas for example lol.
I got called by another "detail" company I work for from time to time. I mainly do private security for them. But was asked if I wanted to go to St. Louis for the riots in Ferguson.....nah, not even close. Not my war....
Stay safe Rich. After I get Bandit back ill be making a trip to the northern parts place. Just for small stuff I find I may need after I drive it a week or so.
I got the Nissan finished up. Of course I rushed putting it back together. I guess 7 hours isn't long enough to assemble a car. I left a big ugly thumb print in the door handle. It's easy enough to fix, but it ticks me off that I have to.
The new kid at the car lot is a huge disappointment. He said his ex-girlfriend's father had a stroke so he had to leave and go to the hospital.
I don't go see any of my ex's relatives in the hospital. We're pretty sure he just doesn't like to work. He said he would be 30 minutes at 1430. .....didn't see him for the rest of the day.
I can barely get to work, but I still manage to get the job done.
Forgive me if I shared this picture previously, the maintenance apprentice at one of the sawmills I call on built this truck on a Bronco chassis with the bronco 302 and AOD. He's I think twenty years old.
nice looking truck chip i really like those old 57-60 square bodies....
alan i know about young kids ya hire for helpers they are all for it... until they find out it is real work..
well i have the trailer loaded and i guess i will head out in the morning.. i will be in lot c123 and 125.. right inside the gate in front of the grandstand behind the row of concession stands.. ya'll drop by..
He's really bright and is learning electrical, hydraulic, Pneumatics, welding and vehicle maintenance from a brilliant man. They maintain all the log trucks, loaders, all the sawmill equipment and create new equipment for the mill...one of the few good and driven kids today who is humble enough to listen and learn. Alan, you'd be ecstatic if he were your helper.
WHOA! Chip. That has to be a heck of a machine to do that! I'd like to see it too.
I have to go to the car lot first thing to work on a couple of customer's cars that had appointments. I'd leave it up to junior, but I just can't depend on him showing up. What a pain it the butt. He does really well when he shows up. He's works fast and does a good job, but he just can't seem to work more than four hours at a time.
Talking about a sucking morning! Helped the neighbor down the road go get this 67 c30 1 ton truck out of the weeds, we brought my trailor with his 01 ford 3/4 ton diesel. Back end was locked up. He gets an idea to sling the truck around the field with me in it steering to break it loose....it was fun drifting around the field, that ford 7.3 had some power! But in the end they are still locked up!
Well getting ready to head out to other places. See the black smoke marks on the far R/H hanger in the last pic? It took a rocket the other day and burned up a helo, a long with the rest of the hanger.
I hate hearing the "God" voice speaker yelling "incoming incoming incoming" and there hear the impact blast 2 sec later.
Its about 110+ on the flight line, glad I am outa there.
