  1. Ok so I live in rural Maine half the year. The good is quiet no crime friendly folks small microbrewery ect. The bad, Amazon prime takes over a week and getting instant gratification for certain items is a no go. On the other hand when you have an issue there is a network of sole proprietors that work out of there homes or converted barns. Today I needed an outboard starter fixed so I went up the road to a dirt road where the local starter/alternater rebuild lived. Shop wide open but nobody around so I walked around his property until I found him tending his garden. No problem! This isn't a drop it off and pick it up later, no time like the present to dig in and fix it. Watching a man who had done the same repairs for 53 years is fascinating to me. He just dug in, threw the stater on the lathe to polish it. New brushes from what he had on stock, chatted, I helped hold a few brushes on reassembly and I was back in buisness for the princely sum of $45 for a repaired marine starter. Even watching his hands while doing this at probably close to 80 I figured a thumb war with this man would only result in a broken thumb on my end. His diagnostic machine for alternators is from around 1937 he picked up as surplus from the air force base as it was used to diagnose generators from B 52s.

  2. I just wish the gay community would stop being the attention whore machine that they have become and just live normal lives and mind their own business. And the same goes for the super christian types who keep banging the anti gay drums. Just move the fuck on! Constantly shoving this shit into peoples faces gets pretty old, and from then on people will not care, or just be super annoyed by it. Stop trying to force special treatment upon yourselves by others who just don't want to fucking deal with you. And this goes for both groups! And their is one Unity Flag already that includes everyone, so stop inventing dumb shit!

  3. I got my current dog from a humane society. He was there for over a year. He’s a fucking basket case. But he’ll cuddle you until it hurts. had him for 8 years now. He was $50.

  4. Everybody wants a good story, good stories sell. I hate that dogs have become another commodity or status symbol. My best dogs were always those we found without looking. They were just dogs, the breed was usually sort of secondary, it was always about the individual dog. Most were just dogs that were wandering around or puppies someone was giving away. Hell, the Chihuahua we had, which was a mean evil animal that only ever liked my Mom (and vice versa) and was a freebie that came with a Datsun (1200, dog was old then and it was required to take the dog to get the car), that dog lived to like 20 something .

  7. After a very long search, I finally found my art-deco era car I was looking for. I had a few candidates, but always favored the 1940 Ford Coupe. I pulled the trigger on this one and hope to have it home from Arizona next week. It's super clean top to bottom, and even though it's thoroughly updated, it's got minimal and tastefully done mods. It still looks like a mostly original '40. I'm plannng to personalize it bit to my taste, but it's not too much of a project, really! I think it's going to be a great car, and I can FINALLY stop combing the ads for 2-3 hours every day!

  8. Found elsewhere: "So they let you work as “essential workers” throughout the entire pandemic where you could literally become infected and die. And now that the :syringe: are here, you must all get one or you can’t work anymore...where you already were working.. during the entire deadly pandemic... and you didn’t die"

  9. You guys are awesome. I got Zoe when her litter was orphaned at two weeks. Mrs. Racer 1.0s father is an inbred countryfuck. He lived on a busy road, with a 50 mph limit. He got dogs, wouldn't fence or otherwise secure them. They went into the road and got run over. He always said, "Too stupid to stay out of the road, too stupid to live." He was given a female Blue Heeler. Said he wouldn't take her unless she was fixed. They lied and said she was fixed, and Joe (my former father in law) is too stupid to roll her over and check for a scar. Two weeks later she is in heat, every stray around was mounting her. Grandpa lived next door and told Joe, "You better put the bitch in the barn, she's in heat." Inbred countryfuck Joe says, "She can't be in heat, she's been fixed." He is too stupid to know dogs don't fuck for fun like we do. So she gives birth to 11 pups, and two weeks later she gets killed by a car, because, "She is too stupid to stay out of the road." Mrs. Racer 1.0 just happened to stop by when Joe was loading the 11 puppies into a burlap sack and take them out to the pond and drown them. I was working second shift then, and when I came home she was sitting there trying to nurse them with baby formula, crying. "I couldn't let my dad just kill them." she bawled. The baby formula wan't working, they just puked it back up. I went to the store and got some goat's milk. That was all it took. Zoe was the only female, and the runt. I was nursing here when her eyes opened, so she imprinted on me as mother. Even though she was the runt, she dominated the litter, even mounting the other pups to show dominance over them. We kept two of the pups and gave the other 10 homes. When I divorced Mrs. Racer 1.0 a couple years later I kept Zoe, she kept the other dog. Zoe and I were never apart in her almost 15 years. One afternoon about a month before her 15th birthday she came up to me as I watched TV, laid her chin on my knee and gave me a look that said it was her time. That was about 15 years ago. I still miss her. She was very smart, learned a large vocabulary, even phrases. She would bring anything I pointed to and said, "Bring Zoe!". As you can see in the photos, she loved to pose, and I believe she knew the camera saved memories. She loved to fetch, and play Frisbee. I don't think she understood that she was a dog and not people. She always socialized well with most people, but was always very guarded around dogs, and only tolerated a few that she saw regularly.

  11. And a quick bit of sanding, filler primer, and a lick of paint. Not quite finished with sanding and filling clean up but wanted to see about what it would look like.

  12. The City of Oakland just cut 18 million dollars out of it's Police budget despite the murder rate doubling over last year.. A news crew is interviewing the new "Director of Violence Prevention" in front of City Hall, and armed robbers held up the news crew trying to steal their camera. Luckily, City Hall has armed security, and an armed guard brandished his weapon and the robber(s) took off empty handed. I find it ironic that City Hall wants to take away private citizens right to have firearms and police officers, but they have armed security and metal detectors to protect themselves. Typical. https://www.yahoo.com/news/robbers-hold-news-crew-interviewing-191523830.html

  13. Still plugging away. Scored a cleaner set of doors and some bumpers locally. Waaaay better than my rust and bog filled doors. Also revamping the fuel system to work better with the MS, got some 630cc EV14 injectors, a new rail, aeromotive fpr and a new 225 pump coming.

  20. Motherfuckers, now I'm all teary eyed. We lost this little tardo in February to cancer. still have her litter mate Dessa, Twiggy the Saluki, and Loki the Husky. All rescues. This one, by far was my favorite. One I'll probably never get over. RIP Honey Bear.

  21. Mine was abandoned at a vet with a broken paw. He was just a puppy and was always there when my wife took our other dog in. The owner got the bill and went out to his truck to 'get his wallet' and just fucked off. When the cast was to come off he was to go to the shelter. My wife took him in and though she never admitted it I think she paid the bill. He was my best friend for a dozen years.

  23. Keep in mind that their public stance on immoral acts, banning or not banning gays or whatever has really no connection to what they realy do or think. They are politicians. They say what ever pleases the most people. They are not necessarily hypocritical, they are just liars.

  24. This event will get bigger, huge potential here! The first year and this year were a bit lower due to transition away from Canby, covid, rain. 2022 will see some growth for sure. Especially if we all mention it to our Datsun friends way in advanced.

  35. Revision 4. Still has a bit larger opening than the stock one but the look seems about right. Will probably tinker with it a tiny bit more but pretty close to acceptable now.
