Breakroom - Coffee, Good Friends & Good Conversation-7 September 08- 13 September 08

Come on in and enjoy folks.

Lets make the best of our Sunday. I'm starting off by having a few beers. Also, a fresh pot for a new week. There are beers on the counter next to the coffee. Take what you please.

I have a lot of studying to do tomorrow. Hope you all have a good evening/morning!

Jb

Coffee, ph00, tea, and seet tea are all on for the midnighters. Added some of the Dragons special stuff to the coffee for an extra kick.

That sounds ideal!
As I have said before (Wife and I are hicks), a person needs enough room to be able to take a whiz outside without getting arrested. Sounds like you will have plenty of room. Very happy for you.

Midway through vacation time. I'ts goin' fast. Spent last night bendinb the shifter on the 'Rag to give the littluns' some more leg room. Came out great, just as I had planned. Looks like it came thatt way. Tonight was spent on rear axle seals and brakes. 'Bout 1/2 done but it's gettin' dark out nowadays. I'll finish tomorrow the get started on the front end either tomorrow or monday. (it's still last week here for another 1/2 hour )

Chris- Long time no see round here. Congrats on the house. Sounds like a great find.

Mornin, everyone...

Bigtruck, who are you attached to? A lot of our guys are coming back later this week...

Last night, I pulled the bed off my truck, doing the AD 150 install soon, but I can't run it until I get a tap for my FP guage...

Gonna work on that today, nothin serious...

Chris, congrats on the house. How have you been, friend? Ain't talked to you in a while...

Ok, fresh pot of LSD and some foo too...


Matt, my OL mad a killer pot of sweat tea yesterday... a little thick, but smooth enough to quench your thirst on a hot day.

Some storm... less than .5 inch of rain...

Anybody need some help knocking down some trees??
Last three trees I fell dropped just the way almost inline with the hinge I left.

the biggest tree I dropped fell right between a shed and trampoline and put a buddy on his tail while he was pulling on the rope to guide it.

Morning.

Chores are done. Read a few chapters in one of my books. Now it's time to wath some football. Seahags are down going into the half. That's good. Hopefully the Cards can pull something off this season. We fans need it.

Enjoy your sundays folks.

Good afternoon, been working outside most of the day. Got the garden all torn out, trimmed some trees, and picked up the land mines. GF is on her way home from Iowa, she should be here in an hour. Gonna go out in garage and find something to do.

Mad, that big pot of sweet tea sounds good right now. I'm all out, didn't make any yesterday. Looks like I'll have to resort to a couple beers tonight. On the AD install, my buddy and I put on on his 08 qc/sb and we had to modify the bracket so it would work right. In the place they tell you to mount it some trucks have a useless hanger there, either cut it out (which sucks to try and do) or retrofit the bracket to work with the hanger (what we ended up doing.) Just to let you know in case you run into a problem, I dunno if the pre-08 trucks are the same or not but thats what we ran into.

Gonna go this week and look at getting a new gooseneck trailer and a b&w hitch installed in my bed. The local trailer dealer has a couple nice Big Tex trailers for sale. I'm looking at something in the 14k-18k lb range. I'd like to build my own but I don't have the time right now with work and all. Someday I'll get around to that. Gonna build a winch bracket for it, put some auxillary lights aimed at the deck on it, extra d-rings, and alot of lights down the side.

Evenin' gang,
Gorgeous day down this way - - never know another little wind storm was nearby. Hope it stays away - - that will be fine with me.

OK, what is there about this I am missing? Is there something in the wind (besides whiz)????

Grabbing a ph00 and watching more football. Nice to have it back on. Great time waster.

Ya'll be good.

Bob

I just had some with dinner... put about half a shot of captain in it, too...

I have the same bracket, but I put mine on the outside of the frame, and I have the back bracket underneath the tank... perfect for me. I really like where I got it mounted.

I jumped for joy when I got that walbro out of there...

Evenin, DTR. Broke off good. After I posted this morning, I went outside, and been out all day with this air dog. Got it right, tho. I was out there so long, I was drunk twice...
