I've bought, eaten and seen pies in Texas. That frame is not heavy duty enough to hold even the lightest Lemon Meringue with a crumb crust. Dinky at best. lol


I'll wait for the Fabricator to tell me.
Randall, I had a moment this past week of finally making hard plans of visiting with members in Lubbock and a few other members locations in Texas and had put you on the list.


Then I remembered the last 3 antique cars I hauled to the Yellow Rose Ranch just East of San Antonio. On the way back to the farm I stopped at an I-10 restroom stop. I did my duty, got back into the truck and hauled that 3 car enclosed trailer back to the farm. 60 miles inside La. I was stopped by a La State Trooper I assumed for speeding. I was quite surprised to find him at my window smiling and my now ex-wife standing at the passenger window, not smiling. I left her ass at that last stop.


He lost his shit when I told him she does not take subtle hints easily.


Ex-wife #1 in a long line of ex's left in Texas.

There are times when a person runs across a deal too good to be true and is a windfall for the new owner and we offer up a You Suck award.


While looking at these pics a couple times each I'd like to offer you my own You Suck for the simple fact you have clean uncluttered work spaces. How, the hell, do you, do, THAT?

It's called WSOCD......... work shop OCD

My work area and shop is very cluttered according to my OCD

I need at least 10 feet of space around me when working so even when welding at the table I feel closed in by the welding cart......

but is more the fact I fall slip or trip about 10 times a day and just plain tired of tripping on crap......
Truth is i cant stand it when something is out of place for some reason so i spend almost as much time picking up behind me as i do working on something but my wife will argue that if its in the house as where she swears she is picking up behind me all the time which i call BS! on but never argue with a woman cause ya never win even when you divorce one they still win
