"How was everyone's day today?"

Knees hurt. Pretty badly. Total replacement (right) on August 23rd. Ugh.... Just recovered from my hip replacement. Maybe I'll buy your POS JD and use it as my disability scooter!

How many miles to ride it back to Oregon? Top speed? MPG?

STJ! (ouch)

Say, that reminds me--did you ever see the movie “The Straight Story”? From Wiki:

"The film is based on the true story of Alvin Straight's 1994 journey across Iowa and Wisconsin on a lawn mower. Alvin is an elderly World War II veteran who lives with his daughter Rose, a kind woman with an intellectual disability. When he hears that his estranged brother Lyle has suffered a stroke, Alvin makes up his mind to go visit him and hopefully make amends before he dies. Because Alvin's legs and eyes are too impaired for him to receive a driving license, he hitches a trailer to his recently purchased thirty-year-old John Deere 110 Lawn Tractor, having a maximum speed of about 5 miles per hour, and sets off on the 240 mile journey from Laurens, Iowa to Mount Zion, Wisconsin."

He meets all kinds of people along the way and listens to their tales--nothing unusual, just glimpses of the lives of ordinary people and the stories they have lived through. The movie moves as slowly as his lawn mower does; that is part of its charm. When he finally gets to his brother’s house, the place looks empty--overgrown bushes, peeling paint, dilapidated--I was holding my breath--maybe his brother has DIED...

But he hasn’t and it all turns out well.

I loved the movie.

But then, I liked “My Dinner with Andre” too.

^^ Got to be the most disappointing movie, of all time:
- weak story line
- lots of yelling
- lots of camera shake

I got my 4th flower bed ready to plant tomorrow.
- all tilled with JD, nicely raked with a grade, top soil added...picked out a lot of sod & small stones
- but the hard grunt-work of landscaping, will give us the much needed curb appeal, on front of property

Went to Costco this morning, next city over.
- spend $83 on several items...love their Kirkland brands
(chicken breasts, bacon, cranberry juice, dishwasher soap tabs, dark roast coffee)
^^ See...back to chicken discussion.
- but saved $50 by avoiding local grocery stores here
- mom sits in the RAV4 with AC on, so Kelly is not alone & we not accused of locking dog in hot vehicle
- I like the store, and taste test a few items...will strolling around with a cart
LMAO!

I can only address one issue at a time....

I hope this kitty will be a mouse kicker arser! "IT" is coming from a barn cat mommy. I think it is around 7 weeks hold.

One of my co workers has a litter and she is wanting to deliver it to me! I would rather go get it. We haven't gotten that far into the conversation, but The Mister and I need to see that part of the suburbs, anyway.

Mister, No, Happy.

Well, I can't guarantee a darn thing if that is your plan. I will need to find you a closer dealership near you? Sir, what is your zip code, so I can assist you more with your purchase?

Beverly Hills 90210. Didn't you get the memo? I was out hunting for my food, when up from the ground came a "bubblin' crude" Oil that is..... Black gold. Texas tea.

So never mind Denny... I just bought my own John Deere dealership.

I just ordered this one for you: John Deere 8450 Articulated Tractor in Springer, Oklahoma, United States (IronPlanet Item #869810)

Do you live close to Springer OK?

No charge! Just send me your address and I will drop it off.

SWEET! But, I only wanted to potentially replace 4 tires, not 8. But! I like it!

As far as chicken dinner is concerned, Rocky is still here. Come and get him.

MEL - I'm thinking, you would like visiting the cemetery...LOL

Worst Joke of all time:

As kids, when Dad drove past a cemetery...someone always said:

You know how many people are dead, in there ?

All of them...

Maybe visit, but I’m not quite ready to move in.

That last bit was added by the cat--I figured he had an important message for you folks, so I left it. If you examine it closely, you can tell where he was standing on the keyboard before I shoved him off.

From an article (internet of course) “How to Cook a Tough Bird”

Coq au vin, a.k.a. rooster in wine, doesn’t require a bonafide male chicken in order to be authentic. In my book, if I had a book, I would at least require a tough chicken. But in truth it’s probably a bit more satisfying if it is a real rooster, and not a hen—especially if was a mean rooster.

My son, as a kid, was hauled all over the world by Nancy, my wife. He loved my Coq au Vin. When they were in France, they ate at a restaurant famous for their traditional preparation of this dish. When they brought it to the table, the sauce was basically black. My young son asked the waiter why the sauce was so dark. He told him that traditional Coq au Vin is thickened/flavored with chicken blood which turns the sauce close to black.

Well... James Beard, Julia Child and Irma Rombauer never told me that. Kind of hard to find chicken blood if you don't slaughter your own chickens.

Denny???? Got any? Blood that is......

For the GEAR-HEADS here, and we know where someone works (SP - used car salesman).

LOL - some price their over-heated RAV4's, like Gold.
4 a FUN thread discussion:


So what's it worth, once a costly & major repair is necessary ?
Owner never sent me pictures or his phone #, so I guess he didn't like my value proposition.

So how would others, evaluate their used vehicle pr purchase ??
- if broken down & very costly to fix

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From original owner:

Here are the 2005 Toyota RAV4 details (Gen2) and I'll get you some pictures when I can.
- 4x4 AWL
- 188,000 Kms = 117.xxx miles
- forest green
- well maintained (well... except for the below)
- sadly, the engine went and 2/4 cylinders (I think #2 and #3) are leaking coolant out of them. I've been told that this can be fixed by a skilled mechanic who can work to fix the head gasket and machine it but to pay to have it done would be $2100-2700. An engine could be found at an auto wreckers and replaced but that cost would be similar if that particular engine could be found and put in
- better than average rust protection but I bought that package with the box that beeps back in 2008. Not sure if that warranty is transferable but it looks good
- I think the cost of the vehicle in good working condition would be $6,800-$7,200 Cdn. but I'd be happy if I could half that considering.

Let me know if you need pictures.
Thanks so much for the inquiry

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My reply:

I have a mint 2000 4Runner and the radiator cools both the engine & the transmission...I am aware of some Toyota quirks.

FYI - when the coolant leaks into the engine, it tends to deplete the engine oil and starves the crank shaft bearings of lubrication
- this is called the "milkshake problem" when coolant mixes with the transmission oil...next to go is the transmission, its oil gets contaminated
- plus a head gasket if not detected early enough, the engine can overheat...and wreck the pistons & head

While a head gasket fix sounds easy enough, if one throws enough $$ at a skilled mechanic...their are more unknowns, than meets the trained eye here, possibly ending in a money pit. One could throw $2,700 into repairs to start, only to pinpoint the next expensive problem. Your broken RAV4 as it sits, is not worth anywhere near 1/2 of retail value, sorry to say.
- I don't want to mislead you

If you want to text me a few photos, please do. I may be only interested if cheap enough, & not a Kijiji time waster.
And if your looking for another ride, let me know your model preference and budget. I can keep an eye open, with my contacts.

Cheers, Larry

It's ruined after the first viewing, though. The mystery has all evaporated, after that.

He told him that traditional Coq au Vin is thickened/flavored with chicken blood which turns the sauce close to black.

Well... James Beard, Julia Child and Irma Rombauer never told me that. Kind of hard to find chicken blood if you don't slaughter your own chickens.

Denny???? Got any? Blood that is......

STJ!
Nope.

I watched it twice.

I found it interesting to go back over all of the scenes where I had assumed that the psychologist was talking/interacting with other folks. Two views of the same events--he thought his wife was having an affair vs the reality was that he was dead, and she was going on with her life; reinterpreting the scenes where the kid seemed disturbed or schizophrenic now knowing that he was seeing a reality that others couldn’t see; other more subtle hints where my knowledge of the twist at the end helped me appreciate the cleverness of the screen play and directing.

The change in perspective made it fun for me to watch again to fit all the pieces together.

But then I re-read books too, to catch what I missed the first time.

Incidentally, in the smiley above, does it look like he is reading the book backwards to you--from the end to the beginning?

Love. Love.

Now I am going to have to go to HR because your feelings got hurt.

There is a co-worker that went there today regarding a supervisor.

Wasn't me... I fly under the radar with visiting with HR.

Cuz, I am an Angel!



Beau, said so!

I wanted to be an eager participant to this thread but Dances with Wolves is on.

I will get back with you during the commercials.

No one asked about my chickens.

My feelings are hurt!



Going to HR!

You want chickens? I’ll give them to you.

A few Chicken Sayings:

"Making chicken salad out of chicken poop" - able to cobble together things without many supplies or efforts
"Chicken one day, feathers the next”
"Love, like a chicken salad a restaurant has, must be taken with blind faith or it loses its flavor” - Helen Rowland
“The difference between 'involvement' and 'commitment' is like an eggs-and-ham breakfast: the chicken was 'involved' - the pig was 'committed’.”

So I get the crowing hen part--but what’s all this about women whistling?

"A whistling woman and a crowing hen, Are neither fit for God nor men"
"A whistling woman and a crowing hen are two of the unluckiest things under the sun."
"Whistling girls and crowing hens, Always come to some bad end;"
"A whistling wife and a crowing hen, Will come to God, but God knows when;"

And a bad joke--one of many on the question:

Why'd the chicken cross the road?
>
>
>
To prove to the possum/armadillo that it CAN be done!

And my favorite saying:
"That just flaps my wattles" - when something annoys you
