hi chipper. not easy to be that honest about things, but thanks for sharing. I can relate. sometimes I go around kicking cans... just for the spite of it and to vent... ok, haha... I rarely find any, as not one to toss about the place... empty beer cans! lol. and the QB don't drink (my) beer. about 20 yrs ago I put central air in the ranch house. a York unit. they were prone to blow out capacitors back then in that era, had another new one go, too. service guy treated me right. now living in country, but from my neck of woods in back in town. wired in 2 to add up to the capacity of the one. they still are doing their thing 20+ yrs later. the kids were sure glad it was only a capacitor.Thanks BL.
It is a bit of a pain as it wasn't when or what I had planned for this week/weekend/and a bunch more days throughout the yr, but you get what you get and you don't throw a fit, right. I did however start to have a little pity party today . I went to the truck and did the same thing starting it today as I did the other day and it stalled, no problem I have other things to do so I'll just let it sit, well I cam back to it about an hr later and the battery was weak, I left the key turned forward . Then I stormed to the back of the truck to get the cables and said can't I get a break, my son right there watching it all , I said I was sorry and I have had lots of breaks and I shouldn't be complaining. I realized quickly that my piss poor attitude wasn't helping me or my boy, thank God for kids to help us see how childish we act .
Glad your kids got off cheap, I get what you mean about an upgraded system, sure hope theirs works for a long time now.
Mornin Leeroy. 41* is close for long johns but hopefully won't need them anytime soon. Looks like we'll be back in the low 80's next week. Was hoping to see the harvest moon but to cloudy here.Morning people!
Moon sure isn't hiding this morning! Someone mentioned long johns-is 41 anyone's threshold?
Not for me, but I did turn the heat up.
Have a great weekend!
That is a beautiful scooter!thanks for your thots... I remember running out of gasoline a couple of times while out on my '71 650... always nice to just turn on the reserve and keep putting down the road.
in 1971 while in basic flight school down in Pensacola, FL... a buddie of mine and myself both wanted motorcycles to putt about on, so we opted for 2 brand new '71 Bonneville 650's. as I remember, we got a good deal since we were buying the two the dealer had in stock. both gold. $1800 each!! . I thot about building a trailer. we needed a trailer! 2 bikes. after some dust kicking... went with a nice pro made comm'l model. sure glad I did! simplified everything. towed real nice, too. perfect for the scooters... we always turned heads with them 2 Bonnies in tow...
