    They did not integrate the schools in my hometown in East Texas until '70 (5th grade for me). Not trying to hijack the thread, but it's not all that ancient as some people think.

    Removed this old heater, hadnt been used in 30 years. We kinda assumed it weighed about 100 pounds. Nope, at least 200. It almost pulled the guy with the rope off the ground

    Need a title for an 85 Escort, or an 80 Tercel?

    WOW - Can I come visit in three years? I hope that little table is staying and used to display a super cool treasure like a one of a kind motorcycle engine. That building is perfect for you and all your things. I trust as you move along with it you will learn more and more about it's history from locals. Such an impressive project. I'm on the edge of my seating watching for what happens next. :lurk

    "Own Robe" - is that a + or a - in the applicant's situation? :lol3

    Thanks for sharing this, Doug. The more this shit is swept aside and forgotten, the easier it is for the disease to continue/grow/resurface.

    What a great old barn you found. I would love to find something like that. You and Mike both did well!

    Now what-in-theee-HELL are you gonna do with a spray booth? Tanning salon for the young local gals? :thumb

    Nix on the tanning salon, the last thing i need is a bunch of catty females around me. There was a time and a place for that, when i was in my 30s.

    Ill probably utilize it as a shipping area, at least until i get so much junk it becomes storage.

    Nightly notice, when the cop walking around lets you know he checked your door to make sure its locked.
    He folds this and sticks it in the doorjam.
