Re: Two weeks and $700 later...

That's what I really hate about electronic stuff-- *when* it works, it is wonderful. When it breaks, which is inevitable, it is costly or impossible to fix. The good news is at least you got it back running...now sell it while it is, and buy you a repairable tractor, like an ole F-14 I heard about o...

Re: 30 years ago this month...

...Wasn't the paperwork so much as 'splaining to the CO about stupid shit my people did. :lol: Yep, seemed like 80% of my time was dealing with the 20% of my guys who did stupid shit! I got it 'bout your job, interesting stuff. When in the mud, I was at the very far end of the President's comms cha...

Re: 30 years ago this month...

Congratulations, Paul. Just curious, did you serve a lot of time at sea, or mostly land-based? My father-in-law was Navy, and seemed to do about half his time assigned to a ship and the other half to shore. In the Army, I did about the entire first half in the mud, blood, and beer, and the second ha...

Re: 85 today

hah hah, Happy birthday! I saw the subject line and thought you were talking about the weather...thought to myself, man it's a lot warmer there than here! :lol: My stupidity notwithstanding, I hope you have/had a good birthday, and sorry you have some health challenges. I'm pretty sure next year'll ...

Re: Hmmm, "Therapeutic Property Diminishment"?

Ok, this is funny. Response from one of the most liberal friends I have—very far left 20 something — she doesn’t know if it is real or a joke either. If real, even she thinks it’s a joke.

Re: Hmmm, "Therapeutic Property Diminishment"?

So I posted about this on my Facebook page. I have a very mixed pallet of friends-- from far left to far right, and everything in between-- so somebody will 'splain it to me, I'm sure. So far, one of my moderate-liberal friends posted to ask me if I was sure it wasn't a new Monty Python spoof. :lol:...

Re: Hmmm, "Therapeutic Property Diminishment"?

Interesting concept. I didn't read a lot, but skimmed the website. I guess it is not too very different from the "Free Cycle" website that I use to get rid of good stuff that I don't need anymore, except this one has "liberal guilt" attached to the giving. Is that how y'all read it? Well, whatever f...

Re: Well poop. That wasn't hardly any fun at all!

Well, that is a problem, and I've got a solution to help you: I've got two really challenging big pines here to drop, if you really want to have some fun! Both grew in compound curves, leaning, and near and in between a triangle formed by the house, a fence, and some live power lines. I've been stud...

Re: Steam engine show here

Gene, Did you take him to the show? I love steam engines, too. You know, you might get him one of the actual-running toy steam engines to play with/learn on. New ones are pretty steep, but you can probably find an old used one that works for a reasonable amount. good luck with the tractors. Old iron...
