Re: Things I learned today

That wire loom makes me look better than I am.


That my OCD may have reached a new level.

While detailing my engine there were spots I could not get at with my rag loaded with protectant (big hands) so...….I dipped into my art supplies and grabbed a 3/4" wide, flat artist brush and was literally painting protectant onto and into areas my hands would not fit.

Big gloves.

Re: Things I learned today

W/O the front skid plate installed the second skid plate rattles like a @%&#. I took the pooch out for a run in the desert, going down the washboard road it sounded like it was coming apart. And I had just had stuff apart to replace the front shocks and serpentine belt.

All better now. And I picked up 200-300 rounds of brass.

Seems perfectly reasonable.

Today I learned you can choose not to react. The gift of walking away.

Bingo. And being offended is a choice.
