15 years ago the auto industry was in a recession. My van was an end of the year model and I was able to pick it up for less than $18K. Looking at delivery vans on line, apparently Ford no longer makes the e-150. Its been replaced with the boxy looking Transit. Stripped down version starts at $32,000 and quickly goes up with added features. I hope to keep my van for another 50K miles or more. I'll drive it until it dies. Maybe the van and I will both retire at the same time.

Nice job Steve. Funny how people think the price should be in relation to the size of the project. I love customers who call and say, I have a small chair... The funny thing is it no longer bothers me when they say, that much?

There may be a simpler method but here is what I came up with

Fill the five gallon bucket. Pour 3 gallons into the 3 gallon bucket. Empty the 3 gallon bucket. This leaves two gallons in the 5 gallon bucket. Mark the two gallon point on the inside of the five gallon bucket. Empty the 2 gallons into the 3 gallon bucket. Fill the 5 gallon bucket to the 2 gallon mark. Pour the 2 gallons from the three gallon bucket into the five gallon bucket to make 4 gallons.

Amen brother Steve, amen. Some young'uns still treat "old people" with respect. Usually they are raised in a family with both a father and a mother. Often raised in a Christion family. They are encouraged to always do better. Stay in school, taught good work ethics, given strict allowance on the internet. Encouraged to participate in sports, scouts, band and maybe even theater. Perhaps even encouraged into the military. Citizenship and patronage are not foreign to them. Leadership skills are important, but of course not every child develops skills in the same way.

Most important, they are encouraged to ask grandpa and grandma what it was like... way back when.

I wonder how long that would take at 70 mph. A few tanks of gas eh.

Safe here in Gainesville. Moms in Tallahassee with nephew. Offered them to stay here but they were all stocked up and hunkered down. They had much wind and rain and a tree fell and crushed the neighbors roof. Neighbor is staying with mom. They have no power and could be days before it is hooked back up. Power trucks are heading that way. Mexico Beach and Pensacola Beach got slammed. Photos are just starting to appear. The storm grew fast and was just 1mph below cat 5 when it landed. Everyone was expecting a cat 3 and were surprised when we woke yesterday morning. I think it caught a lot of people off guard. Only good thing is it quickly moved inland. No deaths reported yet.

Could it be some kind of Metalworking Tool?

Mine has a metal head and does the same drippy thing. I always thought it was just something to deal with. I find if I shake it before I use it helps to get all that extra water out of it.

Nice roadside find Steve. My jiffy Steamer was purchased new, 30 years ago. Needless to say I have replaced most of the parts, including the heating element twice. We use ours's daily and go into panic mode when it stops working.

So that project you have going on to the right there? What's going on?  Love your latest projects.

Good stuff Kody. What kind of fish do you catch?

Today I caught 2 Lady Fish (Trash but still fun to catch) and one undersize Red Drum (around here they're called Red Fish). Red fish are fun to catch but frustrating because regulations of the size limit and bag limit (two fish per day). You can't keep anything under 18" or over 27" (They call this "the slot"). These are fat meaty fish and taste delicious. When you catch a 16 incher it is very hard to throw it back. But I do because the fine is up to $350 or jail time up to 60 days, or both. I don't see many fishermen on this part of the river so I figure if I throw them back maybe I'll catch them again next year when they're the legal limit. :)

We have had a pretty cool summer for Florida. For the most part the highs have been in the low 90's. Not a single day above 100*. That is until 2 weeks ago the highs crept up to 97* and 98*. We're heading to St Augustine this weekend. Its amazing how much cooler the coast is. Saturday it will be 95* in High Springs and 87* in St Augustine. I'm ready for some Red Drum fishing weather.

When my father retired he set up a woodworking shop in half of his garage. My brother-in-law gave him a Shop Smith and it was the perfect size for that small space. Dad used it daily and could do almost anything with it.

When he passed I was looking forward to inheriting it. When it came time to divide his tools my Brother-in-law asked if he could have it back. What could I say? Of course I told him he could. :)

Your intentions were good.
Your outcome is acceptable.
As usual with good intentions your profit is negligible.
