  1. Looking good! Love the Slate/Gray ones!
  2. We get the boys from Ft. Rucker over here. They've been flying so low, I thought about putting up a sign that says "If you can read this.....GET OFF MY LAWN!"
  3. Awesome!! This thing actually runs like a top. It's in excellent shape aside from some cosmetic issues. The tires are gonna need changing, but they aren't too bad. Nothing is seized or rusted up. A wire brush and some elbow grease has done wonders. A new blade and a couple of Alex Snodgrass videos has me making some decent cuts. I have learned that I have a lot more to learn.

  9. I suspect miniature wormholes or quantum movement is responsible. A lot of quantum physics problems could probably be solved in the shop.
  10. Swapping between my regular glasses and safety glasses doubles the effect!
  11. I don't think I could count that high, even if i took my shoes off.
  12. Shoppiness doesn't respect state boundaries. We are EVERYWHERE!
  13. That is my constant state of shop awareness!!
