Beer, Scotch, fire and friends.

Beer, Scotch, fire and friends.

A great way to end a long week. And my neighbor comes over with a plate of fresh tomatoes and perfectly cooked pork chops.  I love my neighborhood.

Rust, I has it.

Rust, I has it.

Maybe not quite so bad as pictured, but still,

a hole in the rocker panel is not something I was planning on dealing with tonight. For right now, I’m just putting some rust prevention on it, then I’ll figure the best course of action. I wish I knew how to weld, but it’s not really worth the effort for a 13 year old car with 195K on it. It’s held up remarkably well, for being in NW Ohio all its...

Painted the rims.

Painted the rims.

I thought dark gray was best. I think they came out pretty good. Now a little rust prevention and a wash/wax is next.

Biking and drinking, again.

Biking and drinking, again.

So, my local brew pup has a Wednesday bike ride.  As a semi-enthusiast bike rider, I decided to join up for a short ride with about 20 regulars.  Surprise, we are riding to a bar which serves the brew pups beer. FREE PINTS FOR EVERYONE!   Never had a beer then a ride. Fun experience. I need to do it again.

So, I want to paint my wheels.

So, I want to paint my wheels.

Having seen recent posts on painting wheels, I’ve decided my much abused Ford Focus needs a little love, and I want to repaint the wheels. I’d like something other that standard silver. White is not an option, as they’d look filthy in an instant. Any suggestions?

I’m thinking maybe a dark gray?

Pork in the smoker..

Pork in the smoker..

A couple who used to be my neighbors are coming in for a visit. As I know own his smoker grill which he generously gave me before their move, I’m now cooking a fairly large pork butt. I started at 11am and hope to be done by 6-7 tonight

Camping with the Scouts

Camping with the Scouts

Just a two night stay at a nearby park. Working thru some rank advancement for Tenderfoot and 2nd class scouts. Did a 8 mike hike in the morning. That tired the little buggers out. 9:30 tonight alll the boys pretty much called it quits and hit their tents. I’m on my cot trying to get comfy. Not easy at 6’4” and 240lbs.

Fuck GE with a stick...

I had to buy a new window AC unit for my house today, as the one I had decided to quit working a few days ago. 90 degrees for the next several days is good motivation to get this deal done. Bought a GE unit from Lowes,

which had generally positive reviews and a good price for a 18,000 BTU unit running on a 210 outlet I had run special for the prior AC. I get it home and my son and I start...

Good night. Stay warm

Good night. Stay warm

I enjoyed one of the few nights it hasn’t rained, with a fire in my front yard with several of my neighbors. This happens less than it used to, but still nice to have people over with drinks and conversation. Have a good night, oppo land.

How did this end up here??

How did this end up here??

A Lancia Beta Coupe’? In N.W. Ohio? I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Lancia, let alone a Beta Coupe’. A bit steep at $20K, but it sure do look pretty.

Should I continue drinking so the movie makes sense. Or continue drinking so I don’t care if it makes sense.

Damn, beer is HEAVY!

Damn, beer is HEAVY!

II walked to my local beer establishment, cause I’m a fat bastard and need the exercise. I know have two growlers to take home in my back pack. Damn they are heavy!

So, if you're gonna steal a pickup truck..

Don’t park a 20' long, quad cab extended bed truck, with a cap on the bed,

out front of your apartment complex, where it can easily be seen. (Photo for representation purposes).

Someone, obviously lacking in the intelligence department, decided to steal my dads ‘99 Dodge Quad Cab, extended bed pickup this morning. Luckily, said thief parked it out front of an apartment building along a major...

I changed out the spark plugs & wires on my wife’s ‘02 Explorer today. Not too bad of a job, I just took my time so as not to fuck anything up. My biggest worry was breaking a plug, luckily the all came out without too much a fuss. I gave each a shot of PB Blaster, and that seemed to help. I had to cut the old spark...

A very good movie. Met all expectations. The family went to see it at the local drive-in theater, as all other theaters were sold out this weekend. We got there an hour before they opened the gates, and there was a line to get in, which only got longer as the hour went by. It was a bit uncomfortable for the four of us...

Well, that might be my problem.

Well, that might be my problem.

I had to replace my front brake rotors, as they were warped, again, and I wanted to see what was causing a intermittent soft brake pedal. I really wasn’t planning on doing the pads, as they should be fine. The drivers side looked good, then I pulled the pads off the passenger side. Oh, My...

The outer pad looked OK, but the inner? A quarter sized piece of brake material was all that was left,...
