    I keep telling the wife. The cats are Pavlov's dogs. They only respond to the sound of a can of cat food opening.
    The joys of being married is the wife only listens to you when they want to. It also means that if you help them understand why something doesnt work, they stopped listening as soon as they her the word suggestion.

    Mixed paint is any color you want it to be.

    The wife has determined a painted tractor that is painted in its OEM colors? Will run much better than a tractor that has petina or rust blotches.
    The below pics are Rustoleum Caterpillar yellow ($15 per quart). Not a bad match and cheaper than the $85 a quart of PPG.

    We just got off the highway seconds before the mother of all back ups. Tens of millions FLEEING THE COMMUNIST STATE. Or just the mother of all accidents.

    Maps has us routed out of route on non trucks roads, there's no way around without going back 50 miles, so I can't even see how far it is.

    I can see trucks parked on 10 as far as the eye can see going east where the grade starts up the hill at Coachella.

    The HUGE MANATEE IS REAL.

    Like chickens... All those remains need are breast, backs, and running gear.

    Just don't bang the flywheel around and crisscross those nice concentric turning grooves.
    Clutch facing wouldn't know how to spin.

    Had to run 2 people off from blocking the gate.
    Said someone had stolen their little $500 single axle lawn mower trailer.
    He wasn’t leaving!
    I was like, I don’t give a F, you’re not blocking me out from my own property.
    I made him move, then drove in, then he reblocked the gate.
    I carried that heavy flywheel into the shop, noticed one had done donuts in the gravel.
    Came out and wanted to know who did that, was the guys son that was there with “pops” to retrieve their trailer, the guy who had it was working for a farmer, and said the lil trailer was at their farm shop all year.

    The trailer had no tags, no registration, wasn’t marked stolen, was little red trailer, the picture the guy claiming stolen was a black trailer.

    So the county police showed, the guy said it wasn’t his, they ended up giving crybaby the lil red trailer, only because the other guy said it was the farmer it belonged too, who wouldn’t answer the phone.
    They’ll get it straight.
    But I told the cop, someone is fixing my gravel, or I’m going to his paved lot and do donuts in there at his funeral home business and block his gate and not let him in his own property, see how he likes it.
    So the fat guy had a rake smoothing out the gravel he spun donuts in.

    Making friends.
    Only if I hadn’t came home at that time.
