I was wondering where you had been. I figured you was bouncing that new grandbaby on your knee or burping her or changing diapers or something!

Thats a real dilemma you have there, Grandbaby/Jeep......... Is 50/50 time split fair to the Jeep?

Merry Christmas!

And Merry Christmas to all and the Grandbaby is young so getting in my Jeep time while I can and have it running by the time she can sit up in it.

Ok got off a week and well I think I had a week off it was a whirlwind. I got the block and parts from the machine shop but have been running like a chicken with it's head cut off. We were looking for property and houses.

Well everyone keep your fingers crossed for me I found the perfect property the house is nice and property is beautiful but ahem the shop is AWESOME we are waiting on appraisal and inspection now.

Oh pics







Whos Jeep LOL







If it is your Jeep you left it with a great guy owner is a great guy and hope he has a great retirement.
