Glad to hear things are getting back to normal for you. A bed is something I couldn't go without.

Roger the bed. I just bought a mattress at half off. Gotta love a deal. And the old bed frame is now painted so I will be off the floor come Wednesday when they deliver. Fridge should be here Tuesday.

Now if I can just figure a way out of bankruptcy.

Anybody wanna buy a well used kidney?

Dam I can't help you with bankruptcy, but I would like to give the kidney and the liver a workout with you someday at the Rehab bar. I hope you can get back to work on the bus soon. I am sure that working on the bus will lighten your mood a lot.

Tango,

Good to hear you now have a bed! Wife and I are sleeping on our office chairs while we're waiting on HF to get out of the shop. Monday afternoon can't come soon enough. Keep us posted!

JA --- I must be getting old. I just left REHAB and the band hadn't even started. And Texas Johnny Boy puts on a Helluva show, but I was just too exhausted to hang on.

But, I'll be back. Pick a day. Any day.

M --- And good to hear Heavy is close to coming home. Man am I ever anxious to get back to work on my rig. I think I hate losing a month of bus building more than the bed and computer stuff.

Tango,

I second that motion with inertia and apathy.... Er, empathy....

TANGO, sorry to here about the problems. I was deployed to Houston as Harvey was moving out of the area and flew around the area for 9 days. I could'nt begin to explain what I saw.

Last weekend we went back to the Beaumont area and helped muck out houses. It is heartbreaking to see peoples lives piled up at the curb.

Flyer --- Many thanks for your efforts pardner. I've met a lot of really great people while digging out here. Some old friends I hadn't seen in ages. Many total strangers. And even with the damage done at my place, I feel lucky and blessed (through no fault of my own, I assure you). It could have been so much worse. My heart goes out to all those who lost everything including the poor folks down in Puerto Rico. Man...that place took a double whammy on a nuclear scale.

Did finally manage to pick up a single Cummins part and get it on the bus.

Whoop.

Just a special clamp to hook up the piping between the turbo & CAC.

Off to find a new oil feed line for the turbo this afternoon. Cummins couldn't find any measurements on what they had so I'll dig around a bit before jumping off on that one. Needs to be a certain length to fit right.

And...still working on getting this new computer up and running so...no pix at the moment.

My sincere apologies to Jack/Ol' Trunt since he is Vice-President in charge of monitoring that aspect of this forum. I will try and do better soon Jack...really I will.
