I was checking the weather for the camp out, and it
Reminded me of the doctor who reached into his
shirt pocket to get a pen to sign his lunch
tab; pulled out a rectal thermometer...
"Hey, some ass-hole has my pen"...
Now that is funny, I don't care who you are!
Could this be Robert?
I found this while waiting at the doctors office.
It is something he would do for sure.
Took everthing out from under the rear.
I going to install a new Leaf Spring kit, plus New Shackles, bushings, New U-Bolts, and Gas Shocks . Leaf Springs are assembled with Poly-Moly Slider Material between each leaf, painted gloss black.
I have also opted for one of the 1" Diameter hefty rear sway bars.
Then comes the 9" rear in with a custom housing builded for this car with 11" drum brakes.
I will take pictures as it goes back together.
My favorite type of geocache:
No restrooms available
Off-trail Hiking Required
Accessible in Winter
Compass Suggested / Required
More than .5 mile from Trailhead
Seeya on a trail soon!
My Brother Grady Lacy. I think that makes eight Lacy geocachers.
Allen is giving an Allen Lacy GeoCoin away on the Wanna Go Board.
I hope I win it so I can give it away too.
I am more tickled than a roster that just found out he has two peckers.
Today an ex customer now friend came by to visit and see how Henry was
doing. I mention my wheel problem. He said get in and I will take up to n. main st.
and introduce you to a Master Machinist that can do anything to a wheel.
It turned out me and him went to school together and haven't seen each other in
a long time. He was an aircraft machinist, now retired. He wanted to see Henry
and said I can make your wheels work. He said just a quick job, and it won't cost you
a penny. He loved the car. He said he would never have guessed a car like that was in
Acworth. So next week I am to carry the wheels to him. grins all over me.
Ya think you're a good driver . uh? Let's see how well you can park a car! Click on the link below.
Use the 4 arrows on your keyboard, and the space bar for brake.
This is addictive:-
"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - A Diet Coke in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO, What a Ride"
Live, love, laugh & be happy!

Henry had a big day
Today was a big day working on Henry. I rebuild the front end. As with a lot of other work, there is not a showing. I had to get out the old school tools. A big hammer.
After a few hours of tear down, I install the new Royal King Pin Kit. It went pretty smooth. Works like a charm.
This is for the e-team. Stuff happens here too.
A minor thing I hit my thumb with the big hammer.
But that was not the biggy. When it was done and time to grease everthing I remembered I don't know where my grease gun is. Lost, loaned, given away, anyway I don't have one now. I run to Auto Zone and got one and some grease. Put it together with grease in it and got up under the car and WOW no grease would come out.
OK open it up and see no problem. Still wouldn't work. Half a tube of grease and a hour later, I won't rust anytime soon, I found the tip was stopped up. It has one of them clamp over the fitting type thingys that has a spring in it. After greasing me and the basement I got the front end of the car finished.
I have the wheels put on the back burner.
That will be worked out later. For now I will work on getting the front disk brake kit, and install them. That is why I went ahead with the other front stuff.
I went to the old car club meeting tuesday night and was supprized that some of the members already knew I was rebuilding the Ford. After a ten year leave. It was fun to see all the old friends and see how many new people were there since I have been there.
Are you a Democrat, a Republican or a Southerner?
Here is a little test that will help you decide.
The answer can be found by posing the following question:
You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children.
Suddenly, an Islamic Terrorist with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, praises Allah, raises the knife, and charges at you. You are carrying a Glock 40-caliber, and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family.
What do you do?
Well, that's not enough information to answer the question!
Does the man look poor, or oppressed?
Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?
Could we run away?
What does my wife think?
What about the kids?
Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand?
What does the law say about this situation?
What do the European courts say about this situation?
Does the Glock have appropriate safety built into it?
Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children?
Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me?
Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me?
If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me?
Should I call 9-1-1?
Why is this street so deserted?
We need to raise taxes, have a paint and weed day and make this a happier, healthier street that would discourage such
This is all so confusing! I need to debate this with some friends for a few days and try to come to a consensus.

Daughter: "Nice grouping, Daddy! Were those the Winchester Silver Tips or Hollow Points?
Son: Can I shoot the next one!
Wife: You ain't taking that to the Taxidermist!
The irony of life is that, by the time you're old enough to know your way around, you're not going anywhere.
We don't do the cable thing. We have had this old outside antenna for over 20 years.
When dad moved I got his old mast pipe and put my antenna up over 20 feet high. We could watch 4 chanels pretty good. 2, 5, 8, and 11. At times 46 would come fair.
A few nights ago we had a thunder storm with a little hail mix in. A piece of hail dead centered the antenna right where the feed connects.
We don't have tv now. This is right when I have spend this months funds on the old car. And house taxes are due. I betye I get more done on the car till the tv is up and running again.
I like it, for now. It is another break in the daily routine.
Say good night Gracie.......
