Morning friendlies. Happy Friday
Q: What's worse than Friday the 13th?
A: Friday the 14th...
Got a bunch of flowers from a colleague. I hate this day. Really I do. Maybe I'd feel differently if I actually had someone to share it with. But the last time I celebrated it was when I was 10. Never as an adult, even when I had someone in my life... It's a stupid money-making scheme in my opinion. Everything's prices went up. A simple coffee cup with two hearts on it, had its price go up by 200%!!! A simple, straight-forward teddybear is 100% its usual price. Madness I tell you!!!
So yeah, happy Anti-Valentine's Day to those who don't celebrate it. And a happy Valentine's Day to those who do.
I just want to hide away, and switch my phone off until this day is done.
*Feeling grumpy*
Me too!
If I ever meet that Valentine clown I'm gonna punch him right in the nose ...he only comes round once a year just to remind some of us what we ain't got. And if that ain't enough; the dude wears a diaper ...POW!!
~grumble~
But tomorrow I'll go to the dollar store and buy chocolate 1/2 price ...yum.

Hey Ricky,

That's what I hear too. I was told it was designed for a tractor and recombobulated for pick-ups. Ergo, the long stroke and high revs.
I too had a 94 F-150 and it had 350,000 miles on it, seriously! And when I sold it the engine never smoked a bit and ran so smooth, it was the rear end and other things wearing out, the only reason I kept it as long as I did, was that I started wondering how far she would actually go? lol
Me too ...cept for a little rust, but everything works ...a/c, heat, 4w/d, every bulb in it burns. I went to a local dealer to get the felt stuff so the door windows wouldn't rattle and a sales lady said; we sure would like to see you in a new one. I said; me too ...but what can you give me I ain't already got ...cept a monthly payment. I'm like you ...I ain't in the habit of throwing away that ain't broke.
That's a trip to the moon, back to earth and back to the moon!
That's 14 trips around the world!!
That's 125 trips back and forth from Los Angeles to New York!!! lol
And the day I got rid of her, I kinda wanted to keep going with her to see how far she would go? lol
Yeah, if it don't lay down and die, it'll be my last pick-up. I might get some kind of little gas miser tho ...ol Ford sure is thirsty.
Nice to hear from ya Ricky.

Sounds like you'll be having a great day for sure! lol

Good to see you too hickup!

BTW, I was going to junk the truck and put the engine in my 81 CJ7 jeep, but I didn't do it because even though it ran great it still had a lot of miles.

That would never have occurred to me, even though my first husband did put a 350 4-bolt main from a school bus into a Chevy Bel-Aire once....that thing didn't level out until it hit 73 mph....great car...but I had no idea one could swap a Jeep engine for a Ford one...

I guess I view this day ..not just as a day for Sweethearts but also a day for the people you have in your life that you care about and love. I give Valentines to my kids and my parents and some of my close friends . I don't see it just as a chance to give flowers and candy but another opportunity to say... " Hey you are special to me " ...

So Miss Ruby ..... To a new Cyber Friend ...I hope you have the best day possible ...

Hearts ... Hugs ...and .. Chocolate Kisses !:)

And here I thought the moon was 250,000 miles away. You got to the moon, but only halfway back. Ain't that a bitch?

I have a friend with a 79 CJ7, with a 401cid and custom multi-point fuel injection system and a Detroit locker. It can pull the front wheels of the ground on dry pavement.

You were born sometime in August?
Don't know about labor laws there but it certainly wasn't in '07.

And now a word about the Olympics. Touted as a world wide event that brings the best athletes together for you to watch compete.
IF YOU HAVE THE MOST EXPENSIVE CABLE/SATELLITE PROGRAMMING!!

Jokes on us.
Todays special, Slobovia vs. Slowakia curling.

Snow--rain--more snow. Pass on driving for a few hours at least.
I'm guessing you've had a WONDERFUL Valentine's Day and weekend...yay!

August is the 8th month. I'm a July baby :)

Yes it's still warm. But the mornings and evening are definitely getting cooler.

I don't know what I'm going to do about my car this Winter. It struggles to get going as it is now, and Wintertime will be much worse, as it's cold then to boot! Ugh, I just want to cry!!! Wish I could afford a new car...
