This is why I know he was a better person then me. Around the third time the HOA drug me to court I would have done this but he never snapped. But I'll never forget his call sign, the words "This is Bullfrog Johnson" in a southern draw will be forever seared into my mind. He would repeat something like "This is Bullfrog Johnson, anyone awake down there in Texas" like thousand times.....

All the HOA accomplished was making his yard look even crappier.

I'm sure I'll get a "thank you" had a machine break, vendor wanted us to ship it to them which probably would've been a couple hundred, then charge a 6 hr minimum at $181/hr to fix it plus parts. They estimated $2000 to get it going with parts. I just pulled it apart in 20 minutes, can clearly see the issue. Parts will be ordered today. Another 15 minutes to get those parts out, maybe an hour at the most to put it back together. Like I said, maybe a "thank you"...

My dad used to do radio stuff like that. He just laid an electric drill on the table with the trigger rubber banded on and the mic queued up. Had people calling him on the phone asking to stop because it shut down ALL CB channels and most of the local tv stations too.
The FCC paid a visit, but their search warrant didn't cover the military trailer he had all the stuff in! Rofl!

Refuse to put the new parts in and back together unless you get a bonus.

for some reason, I love driving with the AC on but my windows down or partly down. Its nice when it's warm, but you get that occasional cool breeze from the AC.

I like it way better than just AC or just windows.

Puck, was your Jeep from up north or something. You know that it is not that old right?


I was driving around yesterday with the windows down and I was fine. I had to put them up once I got the kids though.

Sounds quite a bit overkill to me. My Jeep came from an island in SC, I hit the main bolts ONCE with some blaster and they all came off without a problem as Khris can attest to.

Id hate to see the huge orange oil stain you are leaving in your driveway or curbside in the street.
