Got my truck back.
It was best-case, in the neighborhood of $2000, rather than the worst-case of $3000 or catastrophic-case $6000.
Bad, I know, but it could have been cracked heads, or worse.
I paid my peasly little two grand and that Aposta-Truck roared to life! It's gleaming smugly outside my garage right now.
Life is sweet, I got my truck back.
Helped my daughter build a 'model' for her piano technician classes, a board with hitch pins on one end, and tuning pins on the other, a bridge in between (with bridge pins) and a string.
Basically a model of a set of three piano strings for one note in a simulation of the stuff that mounts it in a real piano.
I love woodworking, and I love making things. I love making things well. I love making things beautiful.
Life is sweet.
I lost 16lbs!
I been such a good boy, avoid the carbs, drink the water, exercise and wheeze and gasp, suffer, fat boy!
16lbs. For me that's quite a bit!
Gonna keep it up,
Life is sweet!
I just got to tell all my JWD friends why I am smiling, This is the only board I really feel at home on. I tried the lo-carb board, the volksrods forum, the metalworking and street rod forums. I have frequented the conservative boards, the gun nut boards and the carry permit boards.
I am into all of those things, but they really don't define me the way 'apostate' does. I was raised in a mindset that requires a central place in one's mind, it makes sense that breaking free from that mindset would be equally central to my psyche, that and trying to help others out.
JWD is where I fit,
Life is sweet.
Why is YOUR life sweet?
