    Speaking of dictators....

    A husband and wife are getting ready for a costume party. Since they have nothing on hand to wear for the event, the husband suggests to his wife that she should put a lemon between her legs as he puts the potato between his. Confused, she asks what it's all about.
    The husband says, "Honey, you be the sourpuss, and I'll be the dictator."

    You reminded me of a “past life”!

    A very long time ago a worked on a salmon troller based out of Astoria. It was one of the “Columbia River double enders” These boats had very round and deep hulls. Lots of ballast relative to their size. Very seaworthy, but man would they ROLL. With the outriggers down we had stabilizers that would hang off chains and help prevent some of the roll. I’ve seen them flipped right out of the water onto the deck, scary.

    We had a Detroit Diesel engine, which are very efficient in converting diesel fuel to decibels...

    This was my second job as crew on a salmon boat, and the beginning of a long time on the water.

    The boats name is “Twilight” and I think it’s part of a floating museum near Seattle. The pilot house was VERY narrow, in fact they called it a Norwegian telephone booth. It was designed like this so you could wedge yourself in and not have far to go from one side to the other, while the Columbia River was having fun with you when crossing the bar.

    In the picture the Twilight is missing it’s outriggers and pretty much everything that could rot off of it over the years.

    The second picture is what she looked like when she was working, except that one outrigger wasn’t shorter than the other, and it would be difficult to find any rust. Ospho and paint...

    We had a group of boats and fished between Astoria and Mendocino. Seven days fishing, come in and sell the fish, clean the boat, party like crazy for two days, buy groceries, shoot ice, go fishing again... :) Repeat... we had so much fun.

    It’s a good thing we only had two days on shore and travelled, that way there were always new bars that would still let us in!

    Anyway, I love the northwest. Absolutely beautiful, land and sea. Have some fried razor clams for me.

    Morning seniors...

    Be starting my "new" job today. Old dog relearns new tricks.

    Yesterday, after degreasing the intake manifold on the convert, I discovered one of my tailpipe hangers broke on the Ram. One that my bender recycled from the previous two exhausts!

    Rather than run to the store and spend money, I rolled out the mig welder and welded the broken pieces back together, adding some scrap iron for strength. Had to do it in stages so I didn't overheat the rubber isolator part.

    Bolted it back in place and saved the baling wire for another day.

    You folks have a good Tuesday

    Morning all. Our internet is being a bit funky the last few days. Actually mostly unable to connect. No idea why. Thought it was me, but turns out other people are having issues also. Interesting that covid virus is spiking after our protests. Was wondering how it was going to come back, guess now we know the reason for the hands off policy.

    The way things seem to be going we’re only a few generations away from being a socialist country.

    How ironic that the virus released from a Chinese lab would accelerate the process.

NE WAY, all PPL stay safe, practice some of that Social Distancing, LOL. WHY I keep my front gate closed with a No Trespass/Private Property sign. Sometimes there is a method to my madness.

    Good morning everyone--mid 70's this morning on the way to the 90's today. 100's predicted for the next 3 days. In the last week, we've gotten about 5" of rain and the grass is growing like crazy. Hopefully, I'll get it cut in the next few days. We were planning a day trip to Corpus for a day at the beach and then found out that they have closed the beaches until this weekend. We would rather go during the week so there wouldn't be so many people. The virus is really spiking here in Tx again and specifically here in Austin where the younger crowd still seems to think they are invincible. If the spike continues it looks like we will all be homebound again. They have closed the bars once again after they figured out that the bars were not following the guidelines dddddaaaa. The capacity of restaurants has once again been scaled back also. I think sometimes we are our own worst enemy. I posted some of my thoughts on my FB page (https://www.facebook.com/jay.spencer.104)if you have FB you might look me up and take a look. I could not post my thoughts here. Back for some more coffee--everyone have a great day and stay safe!!!!
    Jay

    Morning everyone.

    Most of Arizona has been left to their own devices as the Governor has told the cities to make their own criteria with respects to personal health & safety. So you can imagine what that brings. You see it all here lately from people wearing masks, some people not wearing masks and folks running around with full masks goggles and face shields to boot. It's sorty silly but it truly does reflect the times. In other words, chaos.

    All us self respecting folk can only hunker down and take care of our own. I hate going out to the stores and such. Everybody is pissed off and very unpleasant. You are damn right I conceal carry.

    In other news all is well here with us. The Mrs. is flying to Oregon later this week for a short visit so I'm batchin' it for a week starting Thursday. I'm still working on my remote control program but am about 90% done and hope to have it complete by tomorrow night.

    The Kaffe Klatsch is down to three fellas but we still have a good time. We get a fourth gent every now and then.

    The truck is running great. Took it for a drive yesterday out into the desert through some seldom traveled sand and rock roads. It's all dirty now but I think the beast enjoyed it.

    Be safe and stay healthy!
