    Worlds best sister and I, are watching South Park. It is a rerun from a few years ago, the episode about Amazon.
    So out of nowhere she says to me " The front steps on that house are sloped in towards the house, not away like they should be. Water can pool, it could even run into the house in a downpour, or snow melting".
    Once I stopped laughing, I replied to her. " That is your problem with South Park". Then she began laughing.

    This "blackwater..." It be the same/similar as the stuff at paving sites where the tank has "NOT POTABLE" in big letters painted on?

    Yep, useless too. Hates that truck. First one had a 525 cat, 18, 3:42. This one had a 525 Cummins emissions engine. Same trans and rears. Did have air on all four corners. Wallowed like a drunk.

    A2565578-D09B-40DF-AF21-A13C68F86824.jpeg F3C5BC29-F6A8-43DF-9988-011C9CE96629.jpeg Very interesting day on the Ol I15 corridor — huge Charlie Foxtrot north of Mesquite where they’re fixing a bridge and then one just south of Cedar City all caused by folks that probably grunt and use rudimentary sign language to communicate cause they sure can’t read or understand pictographs spelling out a change in traffic flow
    Then there was an Opus sighting on the grade just south of Beaver (you got to blow it up to see it)
    Then we started the LDS 100 run about 1500 and missed the rush hour — were on track to beat our previous record of 12 hours and the boys were jacked until the fuel stop in Tremonton when some DS was cleaning up the trash and accidentally threw the keys in the trash can and had to disassemble the contents — 30 minute impact, but the storm was outrun and the boys got over it and are currently chilling

    A bit closer to me, and lower, would be perfect.

    Not being as tall as an average man, likely makes my wants different than most.
    If they build it for say the average 5'10 person, then its not ideal for my 5'5 height.
    But those extremely tall shifters look so awkward.

    It actually snowed a good amount in northern Alabama this morning. Of course the locals were playing smash-up-derby at 459 and 20.

    You...And had a steel tub? Downtown. But the tubs we had was zinc, not steel. You must have moved north to have such. We did have an enameled water bucket for the dipper. COVID would have got us all back then; sip from the dipper, die dead Dobie right there.
