  1. ...and just where am I supposed to find all that?
  2. I got 2 little packets of grease that's for using on light bulbs so they don't get stuck in the sockets at the parts store. That's what the parts guy gave me because a container of the "real" stuff was about $12- is that even the same grease?
  3. Well, I had mentioned several times what an excellent wife she would be, and how anybody would be lucky to call her his wife, and she agreed that yes, she would be "a good catch", so then I thought "maybe it could be me". I ordered a ring from Steven Singer and gave it to her when I was in Florida. She's having it sized now because I had no idea what size to get and it was way too big. I told her it was all pending your approval, so she hasn't made an official statement yet.
  4. Thank you😁 I'm not getting any younger you know, or better looking.
  5. I finally got a load to Florida, so I could see my fiancee. I loaded it on Wednesday, July 3rd. and it didn't deliver in Davenport until Monday the 8th, but I left Wednesday afternoon with it. I was going to go to Best Buy or somewhere to look at cameras before I left, but she said she knew of a great camera shop near where she lives and we'd go there. I've sent 2 Nikons in a row back to Amazon, and it's nice to be able to look at a camera, try it out, see how it feels, instead of just ordering it. The guy at the camera shop was real nice and very knowledgeable about the products too. I
  6. No wonder! I should have gotten the Everclear model.
  7. Not many pictures because my camera is broken. However, I did use the computer to draw this myself- You're welcome. I looked at my pepper plants the other day and noticed that something was eating the plants. And I never even saw this big-ass caterpillar, even though you can see it in the picture. When I finally found it the next day I ran inside and grabbed the .30-06 and shot it in the head. It was a biggun all right! And the camera- I dropped my camera at Macungie. It was one I got to replace the one I dropped in Johnstown a few years ago. I
  8. Here's a few cars that i've seen run there, but I don't think all the pictures were taken there. I'm pretty sure the Wisecarver Brothers and the Lawman Camaro were someplace else. These were just pictures I found on the interweb and saved them on my computer. I always enjoyed watching cars like these run more than top fuel or funny cars. Except for this guy in this 72 Nova. It wasn't super-fast, ran 14.20's, but that's not too bad for a 3 speed and 3.08 gears I guess. I later put a Muncie 4 speed in it and a posi. traction rear, and had a set of 4.11 gears ordered for it when it got wreck
  9. I always said Montana was the prettiest place i'd ever seen, and I only went there once, in January. I'd love to get another load of steel going to Payallup now and see everything when it's green.
  10. Speaking of Richmond Dragway, some friends of mine from Powhatan put a 427 in a '67 Chevelle one time. I remember it had a cross-ram intake on it, the 2 carbs. sat kind of catty-cornered on it. First one of them i'd ever seen. It was just something they put together, mainly for street racing- that was big in the 70's. They took it to Richmond to see what it would do, and the first trip out it turned a 12.04. I'm not sure why I remember this, but I do. The next pass was like an 11.99, and they wrote on their time slip that they were done- 12.00 was the cut-off point and they could not put
  11. Is that the old Richmond Dragway, kind of back behind the airport? I used to go there in the 70's, rt. 60 to Seven Pines, turn by the 7-11 store. Didn't know if it was still open or not.
  12. Here's most of them, I have a few more to upload, and i'll put them in an album later, but here's what i've got so far- https://www.flickr.com/photos/28526133@N04
  13. Macungie pictures. I have more on another camera to upload, but this is most of them. https://www.flickr.com/photos/28526133@N04
  14. It was at a place called Hubbard Park, I don't know the name of the mountain.
  15. B 53S. These were two of the best looking B models i've ever seen.
  16. The picture that was on the camera, after cropping it some-
  17. We went to the greatest antique truck show on Earth in Macungie, Pa, then to Connecticut to see the redhead's parents and some of her old friends, then on the way back we stopped in Bethlehem and looked around the old Bethlehem Steel site, then toured the Mack Museum before we made it home. It was fantastic. We saw this in Macungie- We saw this in Ct. She took me to this place up on that mountain when I met her in the early 80's. We saw this in Bethlehem. And this was at the Mack museum-
  18. ...and it could have been much worse, I cropped most of the Freightliner out, but I would have to crop me and Bert too to crop it completely .
