Just give me a call from the airport, I will pick you up with a fresh made pie - 541-555-9876

Called that number. Sweet young thing answered "Stick's valet and horse wrangling service. How may I direct your call?" I said I want a ride to Kelly's house. She asked me if I wanted the paint or the roan.

seems Milo isn't having anything of it and is suggesting one of Khadafy Skoal's offspring  or Midnight Kidd....

take either... should prove to be interesting... be one helluva of fast ride...

I wouldn't have to go look for that nut, I know it's not around here anywhere. The internet would be my first stop.

Going out to look for a left hand thread 5/8-11 nut for a grinder I bought.  Probably going to have to order it online.

Dan, Do you have a Fastental close by? They can order if they do not have in stock.

The shake down of the stove went very well - yesterday the wife baked a spice cake and for dinner she roasted a tri-tip roast and corn on the cob (testing the rapid boil feature). She loves the convection oven! Dinner will be left overs with pie AND cake for desert.

I like to pace myself, I do not have the metabolism that I did 25 years ago, besides, I was holding back waiting for that phone call to come pick you up at the airport

Today's agenda; wrench-pulling on a Ryobi CS30 & Snapper SS31 string trimmer followed by engine install on Craftsman (MTD) rotor-tiller complemented by 50/50 blend of sweet/un-sweet ice tea. This is subject to change since my wife is off work today.:rolleyes:;)

Needed some tool steels for the metal lathe and stopped at the local supply house.  They had the nut too.  One stop shopping.  Way cheaper than I saw them on line too.

Ya' know, Gene...this has turned into a great thread...you should consider doing a "coffee pot" regularly, much like the Friday and Monday posts the 2 John's do. Weekly might be too often (or not) but at least monthly??????

Glad you like it, Fred.

The never empty pot.
