Pretty much.   They fly too.  The first time I saw a roach fly I freaked out.  WHAT? ?  They can fly??!!!

I heard this but cannot confirm it but there is a story out there that Carl enlisted two Texas sized roaches to help him move the RF-7s into the man cave?  Carl?

Mornin' All

Fed the babies and am working on this Mexican coffee. It may not be fancy... sure is good.

Normality of wife doing the workaday thing next week, I think. I know she has to go in and get stuff ready for the kids to show. After 20yrs+, the job is wearing on her.  It's not the kids....

 

we got a spot of rain yesterday. That was all. Funny thing about "the monsoon", it is like a fairly nice day in the rest of the country.

That reminds me of a story . . . but what doesn’t?

 

When I was a single young law school graduate preparing to take the bar exam, my brother-in-law gave me a 73 Bonneville sedan that had kissed a tree.  It still ran, but the passenger front door wouldn’t open.  As you can imagine, it was quite the chick magnet.

 

I saw an ad in The Detroit Free Press for a Ford Fiesta (poor man’s VW Rabbit) that seemed too good to be true.  I was in Grand Haven @BigStewMan on the west side of the state and the Fiesta was on the east side of the state.  I called my father—a mechanical engineer—to ask him to check out the car.  He called back all excited, saying it looks and drives great.  So, I bought the car sight unseen.  The dealership gave me $50 for the Pontiac—also sight unseen.

 

As soon as I saw the Fiesta I had concerns.  Stevie Wonder would have noticed a repainted front end.  A shiny new Panhard rod with the paper tag still on it signaled a problem.  The Chevy store had done nothing to the car since taking it in trade, hence the low selling price.

 

As I took my parents out to dinner in my new to me used Fiesta—it was anything but a party—I asked my father if, during the test drive, he’d noticed the Pink Floyd button in the headliner, the burn holes in the seats, or the roaches in the astray.  My mother cringed at the mention of roaches, whereupon I explained to her these were not those kind of roaches.

 

The car actually gave me several years of reliable transportation.

Unlike Bill Clinton, I inhaled.

 

The attached photo looks like my red Fiesta.

Carl is using them for slave labor.....no reason why you gents can't do the same.  5 of those Texas roaches should be able to move Cornwalls for sure.

I will do what I can, it will be good enough, he bought some expensive brackets to hang them, now to just find something solid to bolt it to is my only concern, it will be fine one way or another. :lol:

 

Going down to to the pool to swim an inspect bikinis.

Been sitting in the room having some adult beverages, Michael Griffin and his girlfriend is here with us, he came to help, this way we can look like we know what we’re doing. :biggrin:They were halfway here already at a VFW convention he is the Arkansas State Commander. The convention ended just in time for them to meet us a couple days ago.
