I know the feeling, worked graveyard for 8 years... I started to feel like a zombie after a while!!! That is one thing that sucks about being in the city. I got no where to go that I can work on my Jeep at 4am. So i would sit around and watch movies or play video games, and I don't like playing games!!!

Shoot and talk about dog house, being up all night and being a zombie all day was a quick trip to the dog house for me... hope this doesn't land you back there!!! good luck!!!

You're right! CBs are great. Didn't you say you had a 39A?? Super quiet with CBs!! And those long-tailed rats!! I can't tell you how many times I have "started" in the woods because of the noise a squirrel makes thrashing around in the leaves. HMMMMMMM.... CBs... quiet... tree rats... bird feeders.... bunny-hugger neighbors... hhhhhmmmmmm... (imagine an evil, wicked-looking smiley, wringing its hands!)

Nope. Not me. I just walked back in the house around 4:30 this moring. Went over to my sweet sleeping wife, woke her up, shook the fiberglass dust all over, explained how she now had to get up anyway, so she should make me some breakfast and coffee! You just gotta know how to talk to 'em!





You wanna hear another one!

Not a problem for me my system is wireless and my dog house is fully insulated, has A/C, Power, and water. No need for a toilet either because when sleeping with the dogs you can just do as the dogs do...

Well, I've been saying we were going to get the fenders primed this weekend, but it just didn't happen. It rained all day Saturday, which was a good thing, and today the high was 47. So no painty! Clay and I finished prepping the fenders and they're READY for paint... if that day ever comes. I spent most of the weekend cleaning in the shop. I can't believe how quickly it gets dirty, and I mean DIRTY. I hate it!

So here are the fenders as they sit right now. Since this pic was taken we sanded with 150 grit to smooth out the glaze. They are now ready for HB primer.


And...


Clay scored this at a yard sale for $40! We had to have a place to put it, and it involved some serious reshuffling of the shop.


This side cleaned up well. I hope I can make the rest of it look good.


Started to get the garden ready. Time to plant onions.


Hilling discs I use to pull up the beds.


The deer are already in the garden! All you have to do to bring in deer is just till the ground... they will come.


Onion beds pulled up.


My favorite toy! This thing is a beast!! Everybody should have one.


Since the build is so slow right no, I hope you enjoy the miscellaneous pics. Only 6 more days until Christmas... are you ready!

The fenders looks great, the garden is huge and the Ford needs a chrome straight-pipe

And 1500 additional HP!!




Thanks. I really want to get the fenders primed, but once they are done I don't know where/how I will store them until finish coat time. I don't have the space in the shop. I'm worried they, and the hood, will get dinged up as we walk around them.

Yeah, Clay was pretty excited about it. He started grinding on it right away, so he can paint it! He has one or two tools in each drawer, but we all know just how fast you can fill up a tool box!

So you've got the hood and fenders ready to prime. That's great! Clay's bench looks right at home, great buy on it too. You might consider making the shop bigger Scott, We all have that problem it seems.

I really like the attachment on the Ford. That makes some real nice rows for planting. These farmers around here would admire how straight you got them.

Your dirt really worked up good too. Looks like it might have a bit on sand in it. Around here we have allot of clay in our soil and boy it's hard to do anything with.

I can NEVER find any deals like that!!! That is a very nice bench/storage thingy!!! I love the tractor pics... I was looking through old photos the other day and I came across the ones I took of my oldest when he was like 9 months old... I had him sit in the loader of our tractor... So cute!!! Made me miss the property we had... Not all the toiling in the field though... I do wish I had more room in my garage, but then again, I'm not moving back out of the city just for a shop... But yours looks nice!

The hood has been primed. It is waiting patiently for something else to get primed! My plan is to get everything primed and ready for paint, then paint everything at once. The shop is 28X26. I can't believe it is too small! No way... I just have to figure out how to store stuff. Of course, having Jeep parts laying around doesn't help! I can move some stuff outback, like the extra D30.

The toolbar is a big help. I have several different things I can put on it to cultivate. And our soil is nothing BUT sand! No clay here.

I seldom find deals like that too. Although I did get a NIB tap and die set for $8 at the same yard sale. Actually, my wife called me and asked if I needed one. It goes up to 7/16. I have a good wife!!
