chat chat chat March BS thread

Hi guys!

We didn't have a BS thread last month, so I thought I would create one for this month.

I have been busy with school and family. The snow threw a wrench in school's idea of what they wanted to do. So now we are making up for missing three days. Lol. I went skiing for the first time earlier in February.

Buck, did you and Randy get that old Bronco back here yet? John how is business going? Hopefully staying steady. Brian did you get any work done on your truck yet? I know the weather hasn't been the best but the snow has stopped for at least now.

Business has been OK. I went to Wise, Va. last week. The garage I was in for one of the jobs I did was scary. The building has a flat roof, and the I-beams that support the roof came down about 6 inches too much for the coal trailers to clear. So, they took cutting torches and cut out about 6" off the bottom of the I-beams so they could get their trailers inside to work on them. The I-beams are about 18" tall. But cutting the bottom piece of flat bar on the bottom of an I-beam greatly weakens them. Nothing new to report. Just can't wait for warmer weather.

Ya we got it home, well over to my buddies place in petersburg. I will be heading over the sunday to work on getting the plow off of her. My old beast pulled it home like a champ, and I still averaged about 13mpg lol. Try that with a gasser lol. John, I would have refused to work in that place. Only an idiot would cut up a supporting I-beam or H-beam that way.

If they had welded some flat bar back on the bottom, I would have felt a little easier about it, but they didn't.

Ya that would have helped but they should braced it up then cut it then welded in steel. Man you are brave lol.

You are correct, they should have. I figured it didn't collapse when they had all that snow back around Christmas time so I should be safe. I could tell one was bending though.

Been a slow week. Only work this week was at the T/A truckstop in Walton, and one for Bray Construction/Trucking. At least they were close to home, so I didn't spend much in fuel! Going to a gun show Sunday in Wilmington, Oh. That's always a good time.

I believe John and I have spoken about this before, if not I know I spoke about this with someone.

I think the wife and I might stop by the gun and knife show in Sharonville for some ammo tomorrow. She is itching to go shooting again.
