There is a 8274 for $600, didn't want to spend that much.

Making oatmeal with glitter in it, so the reindeer will have a snack. And they can find it in the yard/roof.

Wow, Bill. I was gonna bust your chops for ruining your grandson's Radio Flyer (you really should be living down here... I have a single-wide already picked out for you!) until I saw him making glittery oatmeal, which I have never heard of, but would be an awesome tradition! You are super blessed Buddy! Did you get the room done? Do I need to come up there?

If I was going to move it would be Missouri! NO GATORS.

The wagon was the daughters. I don't think they ever used it.

The room is close enough, for heat. the SIL is out of cash, no rock on the walls. I may buy it for them, we'll see.

Yes, you do need to come north. for a visit. I have a bed for you and Beth, the boys can sleep in the basement. (thats the part, under the main living area of the home). And NO it doesn't have a dirt floor.

Bill

That would be so cool. I'll bet the basement ceiling drips motor oil!!

That's sweet, Bill. Has your dad always had a spot light in his chest? My dad has been gone 20 years now. What I wouldn't give to do it over.

Scott, this is the piece that caused the problem with the hot h2o heater.
Bill

And is that the hand of a worker, or what.

A close call on the way to work this morning. Yesterday I was showing someone the engine compartment in my DD CJ. Never drove it till this am. It was dark, and raining, noticed the hood vibrating. Darn, forgot the latches. Only got to 35 mph or so.

Had it not been for the newly installed snow plow lights, I never would have noticed. The factory lights show a very small amount of reflection.
Lucky for me the hood didn't come up.

Another mile would have put me at 60, and a 35 mph head wind.

Bill
