Well........ Fuck

 It looks like the F-250 is going to be another damage magnet.

TxDOT is working on I-10 east of San Antonio- both sides, and has been for about the last three and a half years. The construction zone is about 25 miles.

I was having to follow some steering wheel holder who either was afraid of those Jersey Walls or didn't know (or care) where his truck was. So I was in the hammer lane watching his left outside duallies in my lane and his inner ones riding the zipper.
Then about at the county line (about five miles east) he kicked up a rock. I don't know how big it was exactly, but between a baseball and a gold ball size rising up and heading right towards my chest.

It almost missed the bottom of my windshield. but hit hard enough to spall glass.

And -I wasn't tailgating, but was too close.
I guess I should be glad it didn't hit that aluminum hood.....

Now I need to find out how much an F0-250 windshield is, be cause I have an actual hole in the glass.

Yeah, that dirt came from where it hit.

Call a local number and get sent to India for a replacement price of $650.
Finally find a local shop and the price drops to $330.

Look Linz--

 We all KNOW you're a Neocon that's never seen a war you didn't want to get involved in after you got to the most exclusive club in the world.

We know it'll be good for your stocks to get into another endless war- maybe even WWIII will keep your bank account fat and happy when the rest of the world is a smoldering , smoking pile of radioactive rubble.

From someone who actually HAD to get sweaty, dirty, tired and clean his own weapon over and over until  it was finally accepted- instead of sitting behind a desk.  DON'T go poking the Bear.

Our favorite opera singer is back

This time she's fan-gyrrrling to AC/Dc's  "It's a long way to the top" (if you want to rock and roll).

I still say she'd be fun to party with, if not more................... except for the uninhibited redhead that she is.
When she hits that 180.... her emotions will come back at cho with as much glee as she takes from the bagpipes.

............And I can't sleep, so...........

The F-250 tailgate saga pt2

 So I fixed made the tailgate better.

I found out by looking for how to get the top cap off, that this is obviously a problem for people who don't baby their trucks. In this toob, you can see someone (factory of shop) added pop rivets to the weak spot on top. I used bolts.

The top rail isn't really "hard" to get off, except that as you can see- it has about 100 keeper tabs on it that you HAVE to pinch, because if you just pull- they break. I'm sure they have a tool for it because linemans and needle nose pliers didn't reach.


Reinforced where the side was buckled and torn.

Anyway, it looks better

Ford. Built. Tough.

 The result of unloading two round bales with a good size flat spot on each.

I *knew* I should have bought that 2500 Z-71 4x4 Sierra, even with the problematic dash...

And -yeah, that metal is ripped right below the top trim.

Why da fuq

Are all of 0bidens admin flacks heading over to Ukraine?

It's not like many have anything to do there except personally collect their kickbacks and maybe some reflected glory from rubbing shoulders with one of the most corrupt regimes in Europe.

Why does the DoJ head need to go over there?

Why does Yellen need to go over there?

How many Democrat congress critters have gone over there already?
