Back to work already for another 12.
It's time and 1/2 overtime.

I would stay up for 72 hours non stop and work.
This real cold weather makes you sleepy after 9 hours outside.
Means your close to dieing.

Not such thing as easy money as a mechanic.
You have to be willing to die for it for Your Family daily.
And To Fast Street Race again.
Take your title back from Chief.

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit

Colder than yesterday at this time.

No mail delivery here for 2 days going on three days.

Kinda wierd driving around yesterday. Hardly any cars on the road. Businesses are shut down. My neighbors havn't let their horses out for days as far as I could see. Same goes for the other livestock. I mean they have to let them out sometime right?

I'm not saying let's go kill all the stupid people...I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

Unfortunately I'm not in Naples right now

Pilot blew out on the furnace yesterday....not sure why, never happened in 23 years. I lit it again and before I could get the cover on the furnace lit and the fire rolled out of the box for a split second. Last night I notice the furnace isn't kicking on.... turns out two 24v wires running from the controller to the gas valve melted together when the furnace lit causing a dead short which then fried the controller. I called a guy at 11:00 pm and he had a used one to put in to get the thing running again. To bad we didn't find the short until after we fried the used one. Was able to get the circulating pump wired directly which kept the water flowing through the zones so I wasn't worried about the pipes freezing. Turned the pellet stove way up which made it bearable.....for negative 5.

I'm going back to Naples

The Old 'Hoe has twice the traction of a 2 WD car on ice. Unfortunately it was screwed by basic math. 2 times nothing is still nothing.


I hate it when those darn Floridians brag about sweating when I' freezing my manly bits off. They'll get theirs. God is fair.

I've never had to go look for my roof only to find it in the next county. I wouldn't know that a 2 x 4 could penetrate the siding on my house if it weren't for Florida.

I learned that Underdog could really fly and rescue Sweet Polly Purebred in real life in Florida. Yep, dogs can fly.

Never seen Kentucky covered completely by one big assed cloud.

Watch it Ponch, that's the guy that can leg press a thousand pounds with those grasshopper legs on a 130# body. He'd squish you like a bug or squeeze you to death with those 400# bench pressing arms. I read it on the Interweb so it must be the truth.

Squat with a belt 500 lbs.

I have known you 12 years now online.
WE ARE STILL FAKES.
JUST INTERNET LEGENDS.
Did I ever tell you my Dad is still alive ?
Your Age.
He had Nukes pointed at you in Nam.
He was in charge of mobile launch units.
Thank God he never got orders to do it.
Maybe he did and ignored.
Never have my Bud Gunny around today to Bullshit with.
