    Oh, well that's just awesome.... yeah the world is full of stupid people. Doesn't matter if they're the one's who go to work sjck, won't go to work, or think a mutable virus like this isn't endemic and can be "conquered". So much stupid its hard to fathom. And now that it's in the animal population, what comes next? Will we be spraying an aerosolized vaccine over the whole world? Gee that sounds like a safe bet. Let's add the people "in charge" of solutions to the list of stupid. We just won't talk about how it getting back into animals where it supposedly started is more likely evil genius and plays into Gates plan to force people off eating meat. Next up, global famine....

    Anyhow on the bright side. You just bought a 90 day reprieve from any Hitlerian mandates currently winding themselves thru the back and forth processes of corrupt establishments. You won't even have to pin the yellow star back to your lapel until that time is over. Hang in there.

    All I can say is, 2022 and 2024 and hope the socialists can't cheat and steal themselves back into office again.

    I think we should all just go in pods like in the Matrix. F freedom and autonomy, just tell me I'll be safe from everything big daddy.

    I'm sure it will be really nasty outside by the time I'm over this so getting the engine and trans out will be so much fun. It's beautiful out there this weekend. Almost 70 in the day and only 45 at night.

    I also have no idea about the shells. I'm just worried about the extra jobs I will need to support my swearing habit. I've always refused to eat at Taco Bell.

    I liked Taco Bell Burrito Supreme until they got rid of the black olives. That was what? Over 30 years ago now? I wouldn't try to kid anybody that olives are good on their own, but the flavor enhancement they bring into a dish takes it to a whole new level that it's then flat to eat without. Kinda like a radish adds to a dish but you wouldn't catch me eating one by itself. In recent years I went back and found out the grille 2XXL Burrito was good to eat when I was on the move. So of course they've cancelled that too. Tried a few other things but nope. Maybe they'll get my business back again in another 25 years with something worth eating, if I'm lucky enough to be around so long. Of course by then I probably won't have much for taste buds and it won't matter anyhow. Lol!

    So today I had to fire up the garage wood burner for the season. That first fire is always trouble. Started up fine since I always leave the last half charred log in from the previous season. But all the Midwestern humidity soaks into the iron and steel, the fire bricks, just the whole deal. And of course that means it won't draft while it heats up and dries everything out. Open doors and windows blowing all the smoke out cuz I couldn't close the door on the Woodburn and it wouldn't go up the cold chimney on a wet low pressure day. Finally got it all working correctly and aired out too. Not that I got much done though from sitting there monitoring an open door fire before some freak thing happened and half my garage might be on fire before I realized it. Nope, wasn't guna have a rave turn into another rant. Still made "cumulative progress" tho once the smoke cleared.

    So now I'll while away the evening foiling the chrome onto the other model car that had been damaged in the primer explosion that bird pooped my Cuda. Because yes, the world needs a pearl red with champagne flake Turbo V8 Pinto. Lol!

    I don't know what's wrong with me.

    I still can't figure out the three seashells.

    I'll eat at Taco Bell, although I never do (or any other fast food joint for that matter) but I do refuse to shop at Walmart. The place gives me the heebie-jeebies. Too many rude, inconsiderate, irresponsible, unbathed (some smelled SO bad) freakazoid people there. Been there 3 times total. Last was ay 3am, thinking it might be better at that time. Nope, the people there were even creepier than the day shoppers. Left quick as I could without buying anything. That was in 1999, and have never been there since. Funny how any other store of that type, has none of those kinds of people. Don't care if it's Target, Kohl's or what. Only at Walmart.

    Pinto......that reminds me. Last summer I saw one parked on the street in front of a restaurant in downtown Mosinee, while driving through on the way home from work. Fat tires, duals, hood scoop, candy apple red, etc. Obviously not a 2.3 liter. First Pinto I'd seen since like 1990 around here. Parked behind it was a street machine Gremlin X. First one of those I'd seen since the early '80's. They seemed to rust away quicker than even a Pinto did. Saw them that one time, and never again.

    Not sure if this is really a rant but, I can't wait until I've got two operational hands again! At least this coming Tuesday the wrapping/splint comes off and I won't have what amounts to big soft club on my arm. Still will need to be careful for a couple more weeks but, it's getting close. Probably be off work yet until the 2nd week in Dec but I'll be able to actually do something here at home, like get to work on the Aspen. Then I'll also have something to post that's about Aspen's and Volare's again. Soon, very soon. Between now and 10am Tuesday will feel like a month.
