I know you've probably mentioned it before but is that the original paint job or did you have it repainted?
Original Paint Yes TN...thks for asking...a Rare find / Half ton 4x4 built like an 1500HD.
- I could talk about this 4 wheel steer truck, all day

It was the 1st truck year in 2003, that GM used the Corvette Victory Red, on the Silverado.
- but I am an experienced (self trained)...at finding cream puff used vehicles
- as I did 15 weekend years doing Rust Repair, Auto Body & Paint...on family farm
- a skill set suited to avoiding buying junk
- and the replacement vehicle find, I treat like a Hobby...the Hunt & Purchase is the True RUSH of adrenaline to me
- RubyRed is a 2003, so almost 18 years old
- found red truck photo, on FB / it wasn't even posted for $ale...so I manufactured the deal (out of thin air)
- co-worker friends always ask Larry, "how do you always find nice & clean car"?
- my reply..."I'm patience, and have my head into the game...constantly looking randomly"

RubyRed was from the a North-Mid West State...Beau Imported in January 2019.
- but the 2nd owner, was smart mechanically & kept maintenance up / his dad even had a hoist in farm garage
- at USA owners home, his 2 car garage was also heated in the winter...so truck was saved from the rust elements

^ My old 83 y/o neighbor was a Professional Car Salesman & detailer, back in the 1960's.
- he thought my truck was 5 years old...because the paint holds an extra nice shine
- the mild oil washing finish, still allows water to bead off
- most car purists geeks would cringe @ my wash methods...but results, do speak for themselves

03QS_MurphyOilSoap.1 by Larry Schiestel, on Flickr

I have several products - I can clean / detail / Seal / or paint correct with...not the common stuff.
- RubyRed only gets a few hand washes, a year / and touch ups, to remove bird poop
- I still haven't had to paint correct or wax yet
- I was with Murphy's oil...it repels dirt & grime / and during a Rain Storm, it dame near is self-washing

Come winter time- I only drive it once every few weeks, if the roads are dry.
- and the oil part in Murphy's offers a slight protection to trace elements of road salt (to melt ice)

Uhhhh...LaDi, who are you referring to? Wouldn't be that other lady voice you hear talking so often in your head? (...or maybe the "she" in the She Room?)

Pillow choices made in previous post.

Question- Are full picture pillows reversible, with a plain back side?

The photo pillows are a solid color on the backside.

Saturday out Truck'en with brother Twin67 - @ the Mennonites sawmill.

- they will outlast 6x6" Pressure treat, and 3x stronger than 4x4" Pressure treat posts

Luckily RubyRed is built like a 1500HD, with extra Leaf spring over a z71 half ton.
- plus I have a factory Tow package, with Transmission cooler, 4,10 twelve bolt, and new BridgeStone 10 ply truck tires
- got to go back, this weekend...for a load of 2x4" cedar Fence support
(bracing between posts)
- little rear truck spring squat going on, with the weight overload rear down 2.5" - front end up 1.5", on the 100 mile trip home

And 1.5 miles from the Wood pickup - is a quaint little rural variety store.
- with the best premium ice cream, on the planet
- Beau holding his triple scoop, in his left hand...Caramel Turtle Fudge, trust me

Ok you're right...I do have a life but I guess what I'm saying is, I can remember a time when watching plants grow and bloom wasn't on my list of things to do during the day Now, every morning Mrs. TN and I go out, sit on the deck for a while so we can solve the world's problems, then we walk around and inspect all our plants and flowers. Boy I'm going to miss that when they pull me off telework

Found this helpful chart online, put out by Texas A&M AgriLife, for ID of Asian Hornets vs. look alike insects.
We have Cicada Killers in this area, which have come up on NextDoor forum recently.

SD,

2 years ago I was out on the deck watching the hummingbirds when this huge insect landed in one of our plants. It was a cicada killer, luckily I had the camera with me...those things are huge!

This is what it looked like when we transplanted it from a pot to the ground back in early June

This morning (that's a 6-foot fence). Those with sharp eyes may notice we extended the flower bed over to the left by adding more blocks, which is always something I enjoy doing in the middle of July

This morning, I was just wondering where you were, since your last post was on 9 July?
How is the resistance of white oak posts to termites, which are problem in this area?

It's good Ruby Red has the extra leaf spring, which will be needed if you keep puttin' down those triple scoop Turtle Carmel Fudge cones!
BURN!

LOL!

He burned you Beau.

lmao

I was wondering that, too.

I had a phone interview with a recruiter today and when she said it was downtown "in office" I declined any further movement forward.

Yikes!

Job hunting sucks!

LaDi, Sounds like a perfect two-of-a-kind to me!

Did you make smitten Scotty jealous with stories of you past rock star BF "entanglements" (latest PC word being used in media)

Maybe, you both missed your calling in the sales profession?

Also that it is "light in weight, short coupled and perfectly balanced" and that its steel frame is far superior to heavy cast iron. How heavy is a cast iron mower? I think my little Toro is about 80 pounds.

The stats show that the smaller "light-weight" mower tips the scales 206 pounds. That's one strong lady mowing in a dress with her heels on.

And "short coupled?" I know what a short-coupled horse is, but in a mower? Wiki says this: "Short-coupled aircraft, an aircraft with a relatively short distance between the wing and empennage. This can lead to pilot-induced oscillation" I would be oscillating too, though rather irregularly, if I had to push a 206 pound mower with a 20" cutting swath back and forth enough to mow a 4 acre lawn.

Mel, I believe the riding "lawn Sulky" attaches to the 27" mower (recommended model) and tows operator behind mower, (A poor man's John Deere) for cutting large acreage. What intrigued me was the "two-speed five-blade drop-out reel which is self-sharpening in reverse" I never owned a reel mower, so this feature sounded really neat! I think SP should get one of these vintage mower as a backup to her new JD tractor. It looks like perfect as an "OK Snake Charmer" for handling those pesky serpents on the farm!

(?) What happened you ask LDi - while Beau was surreptitiously absent.
- and I blame the Heavenly Ice cream & brown sugar Strawberries with milk Fix
- that caused the lack of time judgement

He should know this by now.




I bet baby Kenny can learn faster than Mister.

Me to AuntBug - this house has a 1/2 open kitchen & we love it.
- and Beau is the Sous Chief...so I'm simply a welcomed addition

SP - quit picking on Mr. entering the kitchen / as it will hurt his self confidence level.
- so clearly remember...
- Happy Husband / Happy Wife or SO

I rather like isolated kitchens too. At least, I don't want a kitchen that you see all spread out in its full glory the minute you walk in the door. I like my messes out of sight happily isolated from the parts of the house that have to be presentable for those unexpected drop-in guests.

And nobody wants to watch me cook—and then have to eat the meals I produce. They really don't need to see me put the onion and meat chunks that I splash out onto the stove while I'm stirring, back into the pot. I'm a messy cook, even though I can cook up a nice spread (if I must say so myself.)

And while dish-washing isn't my bete noire, I do like to sit for a little bit after a meal sometimes before I tackle the dishes—in another room, so I don't have the full sink staring me in the face.

Open-floor concept? It seems to me that just means that you have to have the whole house clean ALL of the time. It's not for me.
