    Wow!!, Guess what I got for absolutely nothing today

    My parents split up about 10 years ago. Dad had some unregistered rifles in the basement. Mom gave them to her brother to "hold on to for safe keeping" :screwup:. I can't catch a break...I'll never see those again...my cousin will end up with the f**cars. Same thing with the other side of my...

    Photobucket up to new tricks?

    They made that site absolute garbage. I can barely open it up long enough to retrieve old pics.

    Need a new matress

    Good luck. We brought 3 home, returned 2, and I still sleep in the armchair 40% of the time.

    I'm finally outta here!!

    Oh Yeah!! My next potential purchase will definitely be a stake out. I know exactly what we don't want to get ourselves into this time. I have actually seen a lot on street viewer and satellite maps while browsing out of state homes too.

    I'm finally outta here!!

    That's a good point. They actually have maps you can look up. I'll remember to consider that...especially if I can find some females on the maps.

    I'm finally outta here!!

    It sucks they bailed on me. The woman was asking about lead paint, and the radon test came back a touch high. Well, the house was built in the 60's, everything is wood trim or has been replaced recently. So, lead paint is not an issue. The radon test....that's a scam, but we would have had to...

    It's .98 acre, lol. I better have the realtor look at that one.

    Oh, and just for fun, a link to my place. https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/224-Sheffield-Rd-Groveland-IL-61535/5317496_zpid/?

    I'm finally outta here!!

    Well, buyer backed out. Gonna show the house again. I'm confident something will pop. In the meantime, I'm getting my show ready for the road ( I need the time anyway) .:) Hope the truck holds up long enough to pull everything, lol.

    California: safety harness in classic cars?

    I'm going against my better judgement, stating my opinion about something chuck typed...but in a violent crash, that roll bar padding will crush your skull as bad as a steel bar - the skull fractures will just be broader. Rollbars are build in the proximity of your head hitting it - there's not...

    I'm finally outta here!!

    I've been sorting out details for 3 years, and I'm still working my ass off on a daily basis to get everything done in time. I wish I could have done this 5 years ago - that's when I started getting mad enough about my job to leave. I hope I'm not ruined. :D

    New IROC? Doesn't look like it

    Since there is no International Race Of Champions, it would be stupid to tag a car with that name that would mean nothing. About as disgusting as the manufacturers not being forced to produce the body style raced anymore. :(

    Think I'm Done Helping People

    Yep, you're done. :)

    I'm finally outta here!!

    Haha, yea. I wasn't going to let on at all like there was any politics involved in my decision, but it is disgusting to watch the mafia sign tax bill after tax bill - like there's money. More importantly, the Peoria Illinois government are experts at discouraging any profitable development or...

    I'm finally outta here!!

    Lol, that's about where I am. I don't plan to rake leaves this fall, or hurt my face walking outside in zero degree weather for endless months. :cool:

    I'm finally outta here!!

    Being in management, working with union help is frustrating as hell sometimes. I usually have one or more hands tied behind my back trying to manage a job. I'm sure there are plenty frustrations working the non-union crews too. We'll see. :)

    I'm finally outta here!!

    Lol, yep. It takes a long time of bullcrap to get a guy to that breaking point.:D I'm in the heavy construction industry, and the market has been flat here for at least the last three years. I was routinely bidding million dollar jobs, now all I do is churn out $100k bids constantly. Volume has...

    I'm finally outta here!!

    Actually, I will be living in a trailer for a little while, until we find a sweet spot to settle into. I don't mind at all having the temp dip down to snow temperature, it's the 9° lockdown for 3 months that I'm entirely sick of.

    I'm finally outta here!!

    I'll be keeping my distance, like Mooresville. We will be combing the area before we settle in.

    I'm finally outta here!!

    Sold my house last week, ran out and got a heck of a deal on a nice trailer the next day (under $4k), and it's all heading south next month. Plan to find work in Charlotte, leaving my snow shovel with the house. Might be driving back and forth 3 or 4 times to get it done.
