Darth Vader version, it actually allows me to walk and not be in pain, it's really quite nice.

Afternoon Everyone!

I got the Mustang assembled and back to the car lot. I also got the other Jeep Liberty apart and painted. I'll get that together this evening.

I had to go back to the lot to fix a disaster the kids jacked up. I would think if you replaced a strut in a car, it was common sense to put ALL the pieces you took out, BACK in the car! It is NEVER ok to leave stuff out!

What...I thought that when you put stuff back together you were suppose to have left over parts and that meant you did a good job??

Nothing like being an overachiever, huh? lol

Hang in there Alan....

Yes RC better ck in with the VA and show them you are a modern miracle of man kind to medicine. lol

rich, so far i have not made any plans.. i guess i should head to the shop and make sure it is still there..... i started on rebuilding the hyd. system in the ole 9N, so i need to get it done and moved. then i can pull all the project cars out and clean and organize the shop. i have about 5 engines i need to get rebuilt and ready to install. but i dont see much getting done till the temps get below the 3 digit mark....

Well its either going to be to hot or too cold and then what? To hot, big shop fan, to cold, start a fire in the stove or plug in the kerosene bullet heater....

Don't mess with cleaning the shop, just move stuff around so you feel better, its going to get messed up again anyway.

And who knows what you will find while "re-organizing", oh dang there is that screwdriver I was looking for.

Evening All!

My days are numbered at the car lot. That guy just keeps taking advantage of me and he made absolutely crystal clear today that he doesn't appreciate what I've been doing for him. ....so he can try and find someone else to do it.

some employers are like that... you work hard and do a good job.. and all they see is a guy who they can keep getting more and more out of.. he seems to think its you who need's him, not the other way around.. there is only one way you can show him your value and you know what that is

The first guy that thought I needed him and I'd be back was in Pennsylvania. That was 21 years ago and that shop isn't in business anymore.

The second guy was in Springfield. He just knew I'd be back. I needed that job. That was in Springfield 5 years ago. That shop is no longer in business, either.

Turns out they needed good employees more than I needed a bad employer.

Did I put the shops out of business by leaving? Heck no! ...but when I see the hull of the ship I'm on taking on water, I don't wait around to see if the leak will heal itself, either.
