Looks like about 11 volts. Sticking there since i left work 40 minutes ago
My wife’s new jerb requires her to be in Charlotte at 5:30 AM 2 days a week. So the nights before, I pack her lunch and make her protein smoothie so all she needs to do is add ice and blend, get dressed, and head out. We changed the parking situation when they re-graveled our driveway because there’s now a 10-12 inch…
There’s a dealer that often orders crazy stuff because it sells. It’s a Chevy dealer right across from the Dodge Dealer that Bought ALL the Vipers and they serve a pretty wide area - basically most of rural west-central NC. These BLACK WIDOW Colorado trucks sticker around $60k and we’ve had three, so I guess somebody …
My wife started a new job, mostly enjoys it, and it’s a stepping stone for her career path. Where she works (a pet crematory,) has several work trucks that get retired after about 10 years. They have a fleet of Rangers and Frontiers right now - whatever they could pick up cheapest at the time. Anyway, they sell them…
Air now blows through the proper vents on Cheapster Cherokee
Half-tempted to squeeze it right between the overpriced VW hatchback and the Avalanche
I find myself looking at motorcycles a lot. There isn’t one that really fits my personality, though. I’m not a racer, and adventure bikes aren’t me. I also generally don’t care for the “Wasp-face” look that so many bikes have lately. Standards tend to be appealing, but seem like they’re a little small for my 6'3"…
On Friday I mentioned we had an armada of Armadae in the shop for leather. As retired rentals, they smelled of feet and the detritus of fast food trips. Or maybe they smelled like the inside of a vacuum cleaner. Obviously this is due to the fact that they were used as people haulers for 40k miles in a year.
Doing a little maintenance on Cheapster Cherokee and saw this guy unattached to anything:
How to make a Pathfinder slightly less boring:
This song popped in my head this morning. I haven’t heard it in over a decade.
I talked last week about how I’ve changed to a ketogenic diet. Still dropping weight but I believe that my slowdown this week is due to the fact that I had coffee cake on Sunday and felt hungover due to the sugar intake. Video related- boxers weigh-in before fights.
My wife frequently pines for her old VW wagon despite the fact that it literally always had something wrong with it. She’s spent a good bit of time on AutoTrader since I showed her the E39 Wagon on BaT a few weeks ago. That, combined with my sister’s cheap acquisition and her new job starting this week, has her…
Clean it out. Buffer image because “ew. Yucky. Gross.”
My wife and I went to my sister’s new place for brunch with my mom. I ate too much frittata. Sis - the one who gave us the Cherokee - bought a car from one of her bar regulars - an attorney who has had this since new. Her son was driving it until last week when he graduated college:
They used to say, “never buy a car built on Monday morning or Friday afternoon.” Welp... It’s Friday Afternoon at the leather shop. One of the guys put the driver side backrest on the passenger side.
But I still feel like listening to sad post-hardcore songs today. NSFW album cover ahead.
