LMAO!! I COULD USE A VACATION WITH DAVE!

In the last 5 or 6 weeks we have lost an A/C unit, my submersible pump and motor (well), refrigerator, washing machine, and today, my chainsaw (clutch). I don't want to TOUCH my Jeep, or my son's Jeep, or anything else that is mechanical, is powered, plugs in, takes diesel, gas, or premix. In fact, I don't even want to open my eyes when I wake up in the morning! I have shot two does this week at 4:00 AM (12 ga with #8) through the bedroom window (opened, of course) while they happily munched my garden to scraps! I am ready to sit in the shade with a 6 pack... nay, 12 pack of someone else's favorite brew, listen to Buffet and watch smoke billow up from my smoker. Just move my chair and put me to bed later.

The guy with the chopper system has NOT come through. He told me he would be over this past Thursday to see what he had to do. He didn't show. He didn't call. And I am done with him! I have wasted, what?... three weeks or so... waiting!?!?!? Here is MY OPINION... If you tell someone you are going to do something, then DO IT! If you don't want to do it, or it is inconvenient, or you have no intentions of fulfilling your word, then remember this very simple, yet devastating fact... YOUR WORD IS CRAP!

LOVE you Guys!!

So what your saying is. I have to drive 975 miles, to look at your smoker, and put you to bed. Plus, bring the following with me.

Well, I'd be in for chips and beer, but I'm headed to one of my most favorite spots on earth for fathers day and our anniversary... Pacific Grove.

Hope things go much better tomorrow!!!!

That sounds fantastic! I'll bring the ribs and the beer! Sorry to hear about all of the things breaking. And, it's probably hot as #3ll there too. Here's a local beer that I've been enjoying lately...

I have a single-shot 12 ga with a 48" barrel, full choke. I shot both of them on different nights/mornings with #8 shot. A 50 yard shot out the window... wifey holding the Maglite! I seriously considered putting them out of their misery, but it's 80* at night right now... don't want to work up a deer in that temp at 4 AM. So I stung the heck out of them. I guess I'm a little sick, but I had great satisfaction! They get another chance. Bow season's not too far away!!

HOTTER then #3ll right now! But we did get a 1/2" of rain over the last couple of days. If you bring the ribs I'll let you do the cooking! I'm curious about a beer that comes from the Pine Belt?? In Florida, turpentine is not a flavor!

Scott, sorry to hear about all the troubles lately. Strange how everything seems to take a dump at the same time. BBQ, Beer and doe popping always makes things better.

Saw your other post. Nice Fathers Day present. Maybe you'll get some rain soon. We've been lucky with popup storms. Just enough to keep things green. As hot as the gulf waters are this early, we may be getting more rain than we want when the hurricanes start up.

I think you are exactly right. I think we're going to get hammered this summer. It can't stay this hot without some serious rain.

Don't take that from Dave! I've already forgotten what his CJ looks like. I'm gonna get started on my build this fall but not sure I will do a build thread to avoid the abuse.

I hate to say it, but Jim and Dave are sort of my JUVIE Mentors! Dave DOES have his Jeep painted ( I think it's Honda Green... I can't remember!), and Jim makes all his own cool stuff! I am sure as H*E*C*K planning on some Jeep action this weekend. We need to pull the tub back off, flip it upside down to complete the glass, MAW finish the bottom and paint it so we don't have to come back to it. Talked with AJ earlier in the week about How To correctly fill all of the PO holes. Then filler and paint. Or at least closer to paint. We're gonna have to fab a tailgate too and do something about a cage. Clay is beyond ready to drive it!

I've been sicker than 19 mangy Kerrdogs this week and Hospice has been called in for a very good friend. I am praying for some kind of positive change.

Thanks for lifting me up!
