    65% are fools and you can double that in ny....

  • Four more years of that mentality could easily pound that spike deeper into the Heart of this once great Nation. In GOD we Trust. All others are fake....

    i have a boatload of nice antique pictures of JESUS on the walls of the house and garage and after 6 or 7 beers, he noticed a NICE picture of the Blessed Mother of Jesus (MARY) on the garage wall. The poor guy pointed at the picture and said, "I wouldn't pis- on the best part of her". i didn't respond to that and he went on another rant how he converted his girlfriend, who was also in the garage, from Catholic to his variety of religion of bible only or something to that effect and he wanted to start his own church. Then he asked me why i didn't get mad or say anything when he blasted the Blessed Mother. i replied that i would leave that up to Her Son who would definitely not take it kindly and would have HIS own way of dealing with it. We finished that case of beer and he staggered out of the garage mumbling something about getting back to me on the 57. Yea sure, i never saw him again, but it was an interesting night.
    i blabbed about selling the car to Big John and told him not to tell Frank about it, but Frank found out and i didn't have enough nerve to ask him to also sell the 62 Convert. It's a shame because he only wanted 2500 bucks for that and it was a VERY decent COMPLETE car. i worked out there for 9 months, before Frank changed over the business. He wanted to save some money and get away from his two employees, so he took the cars apart and mounted the bodies on a frame by himself and took it to a guy over on one of the islands for body and paint. It was a blessing in disguise because doing mud work for 9 months can drive you nuts....

  • i was working out at Franks Restoration some 25 years ago and did all the body/mud work before the car went to Big John the Painter. Frank was a FORD guy who had some 50 Tbirds in his young life. Somehow, he picked up a complete 62 Chev Convert and a 57 Convert and wanted to turn them over. The 57 was complete except for the engine, trans and part that connected one side of the top frame to the bod and i picked it up for 4200 bucks. i was able to get that top part from Danchuk for a few bucks. They usually sell new reproduction parts and i don't know how i thought they might have it. Anywho, if it would have been a 56 or 55 and if i didn't have a no rust, NICE white Ford Convertible (3200 bucks) already parked in the garage, i might have kept it. i put it up for sale for 10,500 and a guy came over one Friday night to look at it.
    He walked in the garage with a can of beer in his hand to look over the car. i knew in 15 minutes the guy didn't have any money and was a complete BS'r, but he walked back out to his car and brought in the remaining case of beer, which bought him additional time.

    You're right when you say that abortion is a "DEAD" issue. Hopefully in the future, more Souls will realize that ALL LIFE MATTERS and come out of the dark ages, where humanity buried its conscience....

    A customer called for a torsion spring change two days ago. He had another company out to work on his 18x8 older wood door with a glass section. The worker weighed the door, which is a must in almost every case and said he would charge 375 dollars for each spring and 150 bucks to install them. The customer was smart enough to ask him to leave and he did, after lowering his price to 800 bucks + tax. The customer said he would call around and he called us and said he needed a spring change on his 320 lb. door. we went up there yesterday and 45 minutes later, we left with a check for 160 bucks plus tax. Unless you're a Doctor, Lawyer or Indian Chief, 132 bucks for an hours work should be enough to get you by....

    Below ZERO temps coldest of the season

    We never had a winter last year in good ol Edmonds, Wash. and this winter is even milder.
    i HATE SNOW. i remember one Sunday morning back in Mandan in the early 60's. i knew my 59 Plymouth wouldn't start, so i borrowed an oil-burning/smoking, no compression black, 41 Ford 2-dr. sedan from UNKL LES. He bought that car from my buddy Dale for 41 dollars and 50 cents. That car ALWAYS started. After 6:30 Sunday Mass, i had to go to work at the Mileage gas station between Bismarck and Mandan. It was 52 below when i put the key in, pushed the starter button and that old beast STARTED RIGHT UP and took me to work. It didn't even have a head bolt heater in that old flatty V8. UNKL LES also had a NICE 54 OLDS 2-dr Hardtop back then and only drove the 41 a mile to work at the Post Office. Those were some UGLY, UGLY winters back there....

    Progresso soups are BAAAAAD. They'd have to pay me to eat that stuff. Their cans are covered with dust at SAFEWAY. How do they stay in business??

    "Catastrophic" and "Plunge" are much too extreme, so you might want to soften that to "Swoons" and "Dips". Traders will be more apt to hold on with softer language....

    When we ran through those, i went online and ordered 5 or 6 cartons of 20 at 40 cents a bulb from 1000 bulbs. It sounded like a great deal until they mentioned the shipping, which was around 60 bucks.

    we go through a lot of those in garage door openers. i remember a year or more ago, i think HD was trying to liquidate them and a 6 pack was around 2 bucks, so i bought 100 bucks worth. i went in the Everett 128th st. store the other day looking for some kind of deal, but there were none to be had at any decent price. we need another 6 pack rack out there in the aisle for us hole in the jeans poor people....

    GOD talks to every one of HIS Children. Unfortunately, the vast majority turn a deaf ear and that's why the world is turning into crapcity. How many Souls out there spend 50 hours a week watching garbage television/internet and not ONE hour in prayer?? How many out there never went to Church in 2015 or in the last 10 years?? You turn away from GOD and all hell breaks loose....
