Do you know what jet that is out in the yard? I've been trying to look up pictures to reference it to but I can't seem to find anything.

The closest I can find to it is the Harrier. I'll give them a call and ask them what it is.

Went out in the fine swedish autumn weather on a cruise in my -64 chevelle to look at a buick coupe-70. The guy who had the buick wanted to trade his car with mine but his car looked like shit so im keeping my grey little chevelle.

My wife and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary by going out to dinner. She has a bad cold so we went to Kentucky Fried Chicken.

We're going out to Carabas tonight.

She still feels like crap. We went out to Ruby Tuesdays for dinner instead and then walked the mall.

Oh well, there's always next year.

Put a new generator and VR in the bug after the old ones cooked themselves on monday. Got ~2 towns away and the new parts were cooked (gen was smoking for 2 minutes after the engine was turned off and batt disconnected). Am completely lost as to what is wrong. Car also won't idle when warm after having done that fine a all last week.

A vacation is where you leave behind everything you enjoy on a daily basis (your tools and toys) in order to share cooties with strangers (motels) or suffer in substandard housing (motorhome). I think vacations were invented by women . . . .

sorry hal, they weren't orange , After laying in the sun for a day they went from green to brown~I guess if I were to have smashed one with a hammer, might be kinda greenish yellow inside though~

sorry doc, I had nothing to do with that one! in fact, he gets to spend his vacation doing whatever he wants~ I just tag along~

Yesterday I got my trike delivered - now it's close enough to me that I can go out and tinker with it when I have time and good weather (my 'garage' is a gravel driveway). Now for the fun part - making it run again, replacing the brakes, and mortgaging my soul so I can afford to get seats made for it.
