    Mother Nature has been cutting off our moisture in June - late, last year,...early, the year before. We are very rapidly running out of time for any more rain for this spring/summer/early fall!

    Looks great, Jerry! Best of luck,...hope you have a wonderful harvest! We picked up our new shrubs from West Greeley Conservation District today,...three sand cherries. Positions are determined, holes are dug and filled with water to soak in. I'll put them in the ground tomorrow - or Friday, if...

    April showers? Not even a really humid day this month,... Winter watering has turned into spring watering, summer watering, and fall watering - and that is just to keep native plants alive. Finished '69 F100 upholstery today,...and hard at work on the '68 Mustang. Camaro is still waking up from...

    Not many tumbleweeds accumulated up here! Days and days of 35 mile per hour winds and nothing to trap them! I think the wind and cold this year has killed my 6.5' Black Hills pasture-spruce,...bummer. The rest of the pasture trees are looking good, though. And the 'three foot ponderosa', that we...

    The good news is, both are OER reproductions. The best that I know of,...But yeah, Classic Ind. wants a chunk o' change for them. I've found that to be true of most repro parts, anymore - especially 'appearance' and 'trim' items,... Hope to see some warmth today,...for a change. Have a good...

    A while back, I tracked down the most bizarre, original VW part for my '72 SB,...It took a LOT of searching, but I found what I needed,...eventually. I hope further searching provides you with the parts you need! I'm with you - I'd restore those wheels! I've never seen anything like them,...and...

    Geeze, Jerry,...from your picture, I'm not even sure I understand how that wheel works! I see the bead, but the entire center (spokes, etc,...) appears separate from the rim. The '76 factory beauty rings that I have from my Camaro are pretty standard beauty rings - about 4 - 5" wide chrome that...

    Yes, chrome 'rings on the wheels'. What size wheels are you dressing up, Jerry? I'll check mine for appearance/diameter,...

    Nice weather! Drove the Spider today,... Don't know about rechrome, Chris, but I've got my cars' original set of beauty rings, and I think they are shiny,...like new. I would need to check,...

    We got about 4" more up here,...more than that, west of me, in Ft Collins. I heard that the Springs got nearly two feet,... P.S. After walking around in it, I think we may have 6",...and my brother tells me that he got 8" in Ft Collins.
