    Be American Buy American

    Last time I looked, 75% of a vehicle had to be made here to be called american made . Closest Ford makes is about 56% with any of their vehicles. I was a GM person at first, then tried Ford and had problems with both trucks. What I saw was GM and Ford concentrating on making them bigger, more eye candy, and more standard electronics that was put in to jack up the price, with less options. Then moving out of the US to make more profit off of lower paid workers. Never would I have bought a Dodge in the past, but they seem to have been working on making them mechanically better, while GM and Ford worked on attracting buyers with gimmicks and advertising. I see mostly Rams by me now, including the one in my driveway, and know a few other people that own one. Nobody talks bad about them, nor do I hear any complaints about them, anymore.

    Man Caves

    Little bit of a mess until I can get around to building another shed, but can still spend a rainy day tinkering/hiding in there.

    Late Afternoon Camera Check

    I'd be afraid to get down out of your stand at night. Got down to the ground one night to the sound of chattering teeth right behind me. That was enough for me.

    What reminds YOU?

    Had a big set with extra track and bought a friends track to make a huge layout in 1/32nd scale. Mustang and GTO. That's how I spent my indoor time. Anybody remember the green ghost game?

    My brother had lincoln logs and an erector set. Don't remember if lego's even existed. I was climbing all the trees on the street, stringing telephone lines across the poles in the yard(father worked for bell tel), building buggies to race on the street, built a 2 story club house in a neighbors yard with 4 bunks upstairs and a fireplace downstairs. We had to take it down when we got caught digging out a secret basement and spreading the dirt around like in the great escape movie. Then there was this sled I built that was an enclosed coffin like box that you laid down in with 2 controls coming out of the floor to steer with, and a window in the front door. The back had a spot for another rider to stand, like a fire truck, and he had the brake lever. It didn't snow for years after I built it, and it rotted away at the bottom of the pipeline. Probably was a good thing it did. Everybody knew everybody in town.

    What is this and how do I get rid of it?

    If it's just that small area, wait until after it rains Saturday, then grab each plant down low and work the roots out, if they will come out. Some of that stuff has shallow roots, others may have a tap root. Can't tell what it is in the pic. Not a good time to spray weed killer now.

    Whenever I see one of these, it reminds me of the first decade that I hunted, and the time spent with friends, or alone, building them. A lot of work, but enjoyed every minute of it. IMG_7172c by shot4u2c, on Flickr

    2018 Vegetable Gardens

    It's discouraging to plant a big garden when a lot of it goes to waist. I'm going to have a ton of beans this year, and as usual, my wife will make veggies that come frozen in a microwaveable package.

    Didn't have it when I was a kid where I lived, but remember when a friend moved to WV 25 years ago and they still had it there.

    Traffic circles. My uncle owned the auto repair garage, and lived in the rt23 circle along with his father who owned the old 1800's house and sold Christmas trees. Mothers was eventually built across the highway in Wayne. They had a car pull into their living room one day. Luckily they all just left, or there would have been serious injury or death. Imagine not having rt80 today. Robert Hall's, Grants, Kliens.
