Trump should have done this allready.

   Trump pardons the Hammonds  

    The Bundy's and the Hammond's should never have been charged let alone convicted of any crime.

I did BBQ for sale this 4th

        I did 30 buts and 10 ribs this 4th of July . I was busy and sold out fast I should have done more but I am retired. 2 days work netted me a 450$ profit. I  plan on doing it again on Labor day .
Funny I pop up on holidays and could do a booming business and my son says its not worth his time.  He is mad because he has no water or power. All I have to say "that sucks good luck" then I change the subject.
       I spotted him supply money a dozen times I wont do it again . I wont pay his utilities . Its time for him to grow up.

Lightning storms .

     Just got a replacement modem last night to replace the one that got zapped . For about 10 days we have had afternoon thunderstorms with lightning.    We got zapped last Saturday,  all we lost was the ATT. modem. Naturally it took 5 days to get a new one. We lost power 3 times in 5 days for 2 to 10 hours each time .   Infrastructure isn't what we think it is. Its a thin thread that has many knots patching it together. 

     I  have 2 Nabors that have NG gensets hard wired to run a few circuits . I pulled the truck close and used my inverter during the 10 hour outage . Their solution cost 5000$ plus ,mine cost 115$

Got my Camper home

    Made a quick trip to the Gulf this weekend . We could only get 2 nights at the campground   as they are packed. I even called Gulf Shores State park on the Bama side and was told  full till July 15 or so.  Sure they have a few one night opening here and there but  we are retired so we will wait and book a 4 day trip the end of july. I hate playing camp site hopscotch its a lot of work and ruins a day moving site to site.

      We had left the camper when my dodge truck seemed to slip on the trip down. I had my old mechanic drive it he though it was fine said I should keep the overdrive off and keep my speed to 60 when towing. I did as he suggested and had no problems but I plan on getting a transmission fluid cooler put on. to be safe. I also plan on a fluid change and filter as that has been known to make this model drop in and out of overdrive and some times act like it is in neutral and overrev .

      The wife and I have decided we will be keeping our camper and truck. I want to paint our camper. I hate generic white campers and the tan ones aren't much prettier . She's not sure what colors she wants but is leaning towards Royal Blue  and Red trim . 

 This is a decent factory job  but a little less white would be nice. While our Fun Finder is not new it is not a retro or classic as are most that are custom painted.  
    To often we conform to  normal so not to stand out and because it could reduce resale value. We do it with our cars ,campers and homes . We are at that point in life where resale has no meaning .
We aren't  moving ,we plan on driving our cars into the ground and our camper is not perfect but its ours and usable for us.

It wasnt little johnny this time!!!!!

OH No !!! He has a sister ??

Little Sally came home from school with a smile on her face and told her mother,

"Frankie Brown showed me his willy today in the playground!"
Before her mother could raise a concern,
Sally said, "It reminded me of a peanut.."
Relaxing with a hidden smile, Sally's Mum asked,
"Really small, was it?"
Sally replied, "No... Salty."
