Passing through on an uncomfortably warm Wednesday night.
Not sure if I'm winning or just treading water.
Think I'll try sleep out under the mulberries tonight....

Whoops. double post.

I thought that rule only applied in the TLPTPW threads....

I was taught when parking on a hill, if aimed uphill, turn the front wheels away from the curb, and if parked downhill, turn towards the curb, so if the brakes fail, gravity will put the tires against the curb and you won't roll far.

May I have 3 shots of single-malt Scotch, please?
I need to go visit Mike Callaghan's fireplace.
Thanks much.

Here you go Donald.]

Thanks, Mike, that did the trick.

Not winning after the VFW meeting tonight. Got word my friend, Shipmate, and Legion/VFW Comrade J. Terry Halbardier, who survived the attack on the USS Liberty in 1967, died this afternoon at his home. He'd been out working in his yard, felt ill and called a buddy. Buddy got there within 15 minutes, called 911, EMS arrived within 5 minutes of call, CPR was unsuccessful....

All his family is in Texas and Montana. His daughter has been notified, and will be coming to Visalia in the next week. There are three of us keeping track of things until she gets here.

Have you ever worked on a transmission?
A manual transmission's problems can be diagnosed very easily, open the case and look at the gears. If the teeth of one are missing that's the problem. An automatic transmission on the other hand. Well that's what prompted Isaac Asimov to write "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."

I remember that as Clarke's Law (Sir Arthur C. Clarke), but whomever said it, it is increasingly true today. Even shade-tree mechanics need advanced training certs.......

Does this tool include a laser?

No laser.
But remember the clue.

Yes, it's cutting edge......

Heat or cold gas?
32) Message boards : Cafe SETI : James Brady, former Reagan press secretary, gun-control advocate, dies (Message 1554520)
Posted 10 days ago by Profile Donald L. JohnsonProject donor
R.I.P

wow 24 yrs to die from a gun shoot wound . What the hell did the doctors do that could make you die 24 years later ????? . Did the gun mans shot kill him or the stupid doctors do a botched up job of repairing him and that is what killed him i would be a little worry'd if i was the Doctors at the moment

Mr. Brady was shot in the head. The Drs did the best they could, but he was left partly paralyzed. The Medical Examiner determined that his death was directly attributable to the damage done by the gunshot wound - that is what makes it a homicide. John Hinkley Jr. was tried on several counts of attempted murder, was found not guilty by reason of insanity, and has been confined to a mental institution ever since, although in recent years he has been allowed supervised visits to his parents' home. The Prosecutors are still researching the law to see if he can be charged with murder, or if double jeapardy has attached due to the previous aquittal.

Winning after the ball game.
Saturdays are Military Appreciation Night at the Visalia Rawhide. Active Duty and Vets get in for 1/2 price, and beer is 1/2 price if you have one of their special glass boot mugs (I don't - yet). Decent game against the Bakersfield Blaze. No score until the 4th inning, then Visalia got 3 runs, Bakersfield tied it up in the 7th, but Visalia exploded in the 7th & 8th, including a 2-run homer. Final score Visalia 7, Bakersfield 3.

Winning in the cool of my office after PFC Kieth Williams' funeral.

Full house in the church (holds about 1000), then about 500 at the High School he graduated from, for Native American and Military Honors. Burning sage smoke and 90F sunshine, my Navy blue suit was soaked when I got home. We gave a good soldier a proper send-off, and a lot of love and comfort to his family.

Guess it's clue time. So I will say that this tool is right on the cutting edge of technology.

Micro-miniature soldering iron?

Just back from a Celebration of Life for the mother of an FRA Shipmate of mine. Shannon found her Mom dead on Sunday morning. Gail and Shannon are fun ladies, and I'm going to miss talking to Gail on the back porch of our Club.

We celebrated with food and drink - it was pot-luck, and there were many pots full of casseroles containing pasta and potatoes and sausage and cheese and.... and I probably won't need (or want) to eat breakfast tomorrow.....
