    Folks who don't recognize a line from a John Wayne movie are unAmerican commies.

    The difficulty with this conversation is that it's very different from most of the ones I've had of late. Which, as I explained, have mostly been with trees.

    'Normal' is something that I've never seen nor experienced when people are involved. They're all pretty much self absorbed poopy heads, and are not only incoherent, but also unpredictable and dangerous. Trees and fence posts aren't very good conversationalists, but they are great listeners. And very patient listeners at that!

    Yeah. Sometimes you got to teach them a lesson.

    And make cool tabletops in the process! :up:

    Wouldn't a really torquey straight 6 like the ford 300 c.i. or jeep 5.0 work better than those V8 they were using? Or is the weight of the bigger motor a more deciding factor?

    Yes. Not so much the pin, but I'm also looking at putting a hitch ball on it. Got to do some creative adapting to be able to use both.

    No. You don't need to get creative, at least not much. Make a receiver hitch, and two inserts, one for trailer ball, and one for pin type hitch. You can weld, and making a small receiver hitch for that thing shouldn't be all that hard. If it already has a hole for a hitch ball, then just make a plate steel piece with a hole in it for the pin and trailer ball bolt and put it between the ball and the nut that holds the ball on. It doesn't have to look cool; it just has to work! :tooth:

    All windows are covered - with the exception of one panel on one window that I'll have to cut from plywood (was one panel short with what I inherited with this house). Taking a break as there's a rain squall right now - BUT - I'd already be done except my lovely wife decided she needed a shower in the middle of this job, so she wasn't available for about 1/2 hour which pushed us up to where we are now.

    WOMEN!!!!! :roll2:

    ETA: Last (wood) panel installed - and nap taken!

    It's been downright chilly on my side of the Smokies. Barely made it to 71° yesterday and today, and was in the 60s on Tue. and Wed. Supposed to get warmer next week.

    If you're a Dodger's fan, I guess you went home disappointed. I'm a Rockies' fan, so I like the outcome just fine.

    Baseball is a fickle mistress. For about 2 months, the Dodgers couldn't lose. Now they're on an 8 game losing steak. I expect they'll still win the NL West, seeing as how they still have a double digit lead over their nearest rival. Still, it's good to go into the post-season with a head of steam.

    As for the Rockies, I think they have a better than fair chance of making the post-season, but don't really think they can advance very far. Their play is just too inconsistent.

    Oh, and Shush, over here a cricket is a little bug sort of like a grasshopper. Some consider them good luck. I tend to think more of them as fish bait.

    No, I was not thrilled with the outcome. But the game was always within reach, so it kept is interested in it. Think we had a 6 game losing streak before the current 8 game streak. But the game was fun and the seats were good. My wife an I took or son and DIL. Had a ginormous hot dog with tons of mustard, relish and onions.

    I've hooked many a German Brown with a live cricket on a barbless hook and an ultra-light rig. I'm a city boy, but I'm a city boy who's daddy took him on many fishing trips.

    If I had known that, I would have invited you to come out for a visit. But, I no longer live along the upper Arkansas, so it's a moot point.

    It is known as The Game of Cricket world wide.

    'The' is the definite article, not one of your common determiners.

    common
