Just got back from, our geocaching tour of pickens county and surrounding area.
Visited 11 cache. It was my second visit to 7 of them. But hey I found 4 new to me caches. That is a very good caching day for me. They where all very fun and some of the best around. A good day in the woods.
When a woman wears a leather dress
A man's heart beats quicker,
He goes weak in the knees,
And he begins to think irrationally.
Ever wonder why?
Because she smells like a new truck.
Normally if you ask me what I did a weekend or two back, there's no way I could remember.
But thanks to the weather mostly, I remember the weekend of the 15 & 16 with details.
Friday night just before the storm hit Atlanta, the three of us went to Henry's Louisiana Grill.
We all three had a different plate. They were all real good. Large helpings of everything.
It was so good that me and the wife when back for lunch yesterday. Lunch is a little less than dinner
but was more than we could eat. We still got to go back to try some of the other stuff. It all looks good. The Lunch special has an Appetizer, ENTRÉE, and a sweet.
Each would make a meal. If you can't tell by now, we love the place.
Saturday was another stormy day, but it was the day I got the under dash AC unit (evaporator) for the Fifty Ford. It has been about fifteen years since I installed air in a non-air car. The good thing is they or now more compact. The bad thing is they have a lot more electronics. I had to run hundreds of wires. It has a computer built is to control everything, and it had to be wired to the control panel that I install on the dash. So I had a lot of fun, and I'm glad to say it is all
working as plan. All I have left to do for the AC now is to install the refrigerant hose under the hood.
Then Wednesday was wanna go day. A lot of rain, but we pulled it off with a good cookout anyway.
The rest of the first week after turning 69 I was under the car working on the brake lines.
I had to build them and put the bends and turns, attach them etc.
They are ready for fluid and check for leaks.
We went picking up cans today. It was alot like caching. We seen guard rails, road banks, parking lots and some parks that were trashy. We got a lot of cans, then sold them. We got less than 10% of what the gas cost. But hey that is more than we get caching when we trade even or up. But it was no fun and we didn't make a single new friend, or married ones either for that matter. May go caching tomorrow.
I will be having Fat-Bak and grits tonight at
Henry's Louisiana GrillIn Historial Acworth.
I wanted a new radio for Henry! I got on the internet to find a state of the art
Hands free Radio. I got a hands free cell phone, and I need to keep my eye
on the road. I found a voice activated radio and ordered it. It came and I installed it that same day. Did some programing and it was time to check it out.
"Nelson," I said to the radio. The radio replied, "Ricky or Willie?" "Willie!" I continued and "On the Road Again
came from the speakers.
Then I said, 'Ray Charles!' and in an instant, 'Georgia On My Mind' replaced Willie Nelson.
I set there very happy, and for the next few days, every time I'd say, 'Beethoven,' I'd get beautiful classical music, and if I said, 'Beatles, I'd get one of their awesome songs. If I said 'Gaither,' I would get a medley of their greatest hits. Wow!
Yesterday, a couple kids came over with my niece, came in the garage with there soccer ball and started to kick it at the Fifty Ford, I grab the ball. I yelled, 'Idiots!' Immediately the French National Anthem began to play, sung by Jane Fonda and Barbara Streisand, backed up by Michael Moore and The Dixie Chicks, with John Kerry on guitar, Al Gore on drums, Dan Rather on harmonica, Nancy Pelosi on tambourine, Harry Reid on spoons, Bill Clinton on sax and Ted Kennedy on Scotch.
I love this car.
My latest DNF has now been moved to my find list. A first to Find no less.
I went with my cache sniffing Dawg today. After over two hours of more hunting
and turning up nothing, we give up and set down at a bench near-by that is in a picture on the cache page. After resting a few minutes I said look and see where we would put it. Looking all around for about three minutes, we said together at the same time, I would put it over there. In a few minutes we had it in hand about 90 feet from the listed coords. It is a two/three star called Bending Through Nature-GC1994H.
