I have to confess I caught myself thinking “what do I wanna B&%#@ about this morning”. That’s just wrong and I apologize….but wait, I didn’t say that… guess I did so there’s another getting my 2 plunking fingers out of my mouth! I have to lol at myself about it but hey, it’s me… I do that and well, sorry but there it is. Had a guy stand up at a talk and say my writing style was just like listening to me talking. Well, that might be good but you know we actually say some goofy things just standing around…. when we get serious enough to write something down that 6th grade English class kicks in and we use a little more decorum. Oh but not me, I just throw it out there…my Mom was a research librarian, maybe it’s my getting back at those times….. has gotten me in trouble over the years and if you count me or anything we do here as good, can you please sweep up some of the messes I make plunking stuff. The one with spelling Timken… Timpchin or something, obviously THAT was not proof read and knowing how to spell is different than slowing down enough to do it. So understand, I throw some stuff out there really raw! “I put my back in to my living” as the Who said……. in the future I’ll give it an effort to at least spell names better….
So anyway, Good stuff today…. Cedric M. flew in from the UK yesterday for a sit down on getting his coach “Ruby” on the road. That’s the second Hum V diesel we’re doing. Cedric rode with me to my Tire distributer to pick up John D. tires That’s to let his family know he made it over the border without any problems but man, look at the stack of tires behind him! You want fresh tires, go picm’ off the racks! So getting the tires over to my mounting folks, we will install new stems (always) and have them professionally mounted with the right… hi dollar equipment The old tires look great… they have an 08 date code…. 9 years old, they are beautiful… a testament to how well protected the coach has been but nothing over 5 years. You never see old tires on a Corvette…. the owner knows if a tire blows it will take out the side of the car! Guess what boys and girls….. our beloved GMC is SMC (Corvette) plastic from the body mold down! Yes, blow a tire and you will probably get an Eticket ride to replace some body parts! Really guys… nothing over 5 years!
Opening up this morning, I wanted to show you some of the projects right now in the big house….. don’t feel left out JD, yours is in the cocoon over in the other building.. I do pics on you tomorrow, but walking in we will be getting back to trimming out Nancy & Willies “Savoy Brown” We’ve put their project on the back burner while they had family stuff to work with. Willie is coming in today so yeah, stay tuned for stuff there.
Tires will be in this morning for John D. and the Diesel. I’ll true and balance those , put them on and Mr. Diesel will have new shoes. Did you know Revcon had a front wheel drive motorhome the same time the GMC came out…. with only 2 rear wheels? This puppy made it into the production line to now hit the big house Under the disguise there’s a 455 Olds Toro heart in that beast! And this thing is worth the love we’re giving it. Can’t wait to do a test drive! Our upholstery shop has expanded out of it’s room… we’ve got all kinds of things getting refinished we’re doing a Correct Craft Ski boat that actually was one of the boats used in the SeaWorld show way back.. note the steering wheel holes on the left side of the dash Doing the upholstery we found a soft spot in the floor…. we’ll fix that too .
And a main job I have now is to drive “Rock the Alps”…. oh boy! I’m headed to Daytona!!!
Life is good here at the Co-op… we’re breakin Broncos at the Motorhome Rehab Ranch and our Zen following for the day is
“Life is More than MPG” .com………
So get out there, kick-the-tires-and-light-the-fires, go burn up a couple of dinosaurs and feel good about it…. because u CAN… see ya later
