  1. Work boots

    I've been wearing Rocky boots for a long time. I like a Wellington boot because I never learned to tie it's hard for me to tie my boots in the truck. They used to be made in Ohio, but the last few pairs I bought were made in the Dominican Republic. I always bought this style, the fabric upper part made them light, and they're very comfortable too. But the ones I was wearing were not insulated, my insulated pair just like them needs re-soling. During the cold spell a while back my feets stayed cold, so I ordered a new pair of insulated ones. Turns out you can't get them with a safety toe any more, so I looked and ordered these instead- They have a safety toe, and twice the insulation of the others- 400G instead of 200G..whatever that actually means. I like the looks of the first pair better, but these don't look too bad. They look very well made, they were around $200, and I haven't even worn them yet. ...and on the box it said "made in Vietnam".
  2. Go figure. Autozone strike again......grrrrr.

    I have replaced the heater control valve in my 2002 Ranger three times in the last few years. The original valve lasted about 150,000 miles with no issues, until one day the plastic piece that the heater hose connects to just snapped off. I sawed off a piece of a bumper guide stick that I got out of the junk pile at the shop- just happened to be the perfect size- and bypassed the valve altogether, but when winter rolled around I had to get a valve. Got one at NAPA, I noticed that it said "Made in China" on the box, but I put it on. It worked fine, but it leaked from day one, just a constant drip where the metal shaft went through the plastic. I just added a little water and antifreeze every couple of weeks, no big deal- until it got annoying. So I went to O'reilly's Auto Parts and got another one. It only took a couple of minutes to put one one. I noticed that it said "made in China" on the box, but I put it on. It worked fine, but it leaked from day one, just a constant drip where the metal shaft went through the plastic. I just added a little water and antifreeze every couple of weeks, no big deal- until it got annoying. So I ordered one from that online auto parts place and put it on. I noticed that it said "made in China" on the box, but I put it on. It worked fine, but it leaked from day one, just a constant drip where the metal shaft went through the plastic. I just added a little water and antifreeze every couple of weeks, no big deal- until it got annoying. But at this point I didn't know what else to do, so I just add a little water and anti freeze periodically.
  3. Pictures of the Week

    Not a thing Ken, just see it on the way to South Boston when I get that occasional van run down there. It's not far from here at all, I can take a ride down there and check it out more if you want.
  4. Pictures of the Week

    I think i'd paint those hubs either black or red though, i'm just not feeling the green.
  5. Pictures of the Week

    Yes I took pictures of it when it was behind the firehouse in Gladys, but I didn't know what happened to it.
  6. Pictures of the Week

    I took a load of pipes to New Castle Tuesday. The weather was crappy. I took a load of pipes to New Castle Thursday. The weather was not too bad. I made this much hot sauce a few weeks ago. Those little wine bottles are the cat's ass! I saw this truck in Roanoke a few weeks ago- ...and saw it again this week on I-64 between Afton and I-81 I think. I also saw a big Mack truck in New Castle. A big Mack truck on rt. 501 near Halifax. Been for sale for a long time. And I spotted that B model that was parked behind the firehouse in Gladys that time, pulled into this garage on rt. 24 near Yellow Branch.

    Nice Bob!
  8. Super Bowl

    Old Bill sent me that in an e mail yesterday, first time i've heard from him in a while.
  9. Super Bowl

    I haven't watched a game all year, no need to start today!
  10. Super Bowl

    I know it's late notice, but a friend of mine has two tickets for the Super Bowl in Minneapolis, MN at the new U. S. Bank Stadium on Sunday, February 4th. They are box seats and he paid $3,500 per ticket, which includes the ride to and from the airport, lunch, dinner, a $400.00 bar tab and a pass to the winners locker room after the game. What he didn't realize when he bought them last year was that it's on the same day as his wedding. If you are interested, he is looking for someone to take his place. It's at St. Paul's Church at 3pm. Her name is Ashley. She’s 5'4", about 115 pounds, a good cook, loves to fish and hunt and will clean your truck. She’ll be the one in the white dress.

    Yes, I use a shorter blade myself. They all pretty much fit everything any more, so I put 16'' wiper blades on it because while they don't cover as much area, they seem to cover it better. I think it came with 20 or 22'' wiper blades.
  12. Pictures of the Week

    I went to Wal Mart today, and they had Michelin wiper blades so I bought one. First time i'd seen them at the Wal Mart store.
  13. Pictures of the Week

    I wish I could find a wiper blade that doesn't ice up like that, but no luck so far. That's a Rain-X blade, and as you can see, it sucks. I tried a Michelin blade once and that worked very well, but last time I looked at the parts store they didn't have any.
