Oddly enough- this town is named after a Union general who burned down the town I grew up in over in the next county.

That means they didn't think they could beat you in court. If they want your property you're still on their radar.

Funny how parking in your own yard can be win. I'd take it too. Glad it turned out sorta ok.

Had a long, hot day mowing yards.
But when I got home there was a package waiting on me at the door.


At first I thought it was just one of the orders I'd placed for rivets, but when I shook it, I knew my treasure had arrived!


A nice week in bus land!

Man, this duck is gonna look BOSS on the the shorty!

Right??
We keep having to remind ourselves that our big bus doesn't have a hood!

Can't wait to put this duck on a freshly painted hood next week.
On the piant- we've had some weather and scheduling delays, so we're behind as usual. That and there was more stuff to repair than we initially had thought.

FWIW- we got the duck from a place called Big Rig Chrome Shop. They shipped super fast and their catalog is LOADED with goodies.

What is this thing, "hood"? This is a strange word.

Hey 'Sunshine' your duck quacks me up!

What are your plans to secure it, properly, so that it won't waddle off? I might have to check out your supplier, so that I can get a little something. Might be a good motivator.

Did I miss your paint scheme? Wishing you good weather, and fewer than usual bugs.

Over the many years I have spent on this planet, I have observed a unique phenomena in that the females of your species can correctly identify as little as two square inches of that particular part of the visible spectrum from a distance of 3.6 miles (5.79364 kilometers).

Very interesting.

That's HILARIOUS!
The look on Roxy's face when she opened her little "blue" box was totally worth it. Now, don't get me wrong- we're NOT materialistic folks. But I'm the kinda guy that knows when to splurge a bit.

I sorta suggested it, as I thought she'd maybe get REALLY into the shorty project and it worked! But I have to say I REALLY like the color, and it will look good with the duck and a few bits of chrome.
We're thinking since we are getting married next year that we'll honeymoon in the shorty.

I hadn't thought about that- but I do love art deco aesthetics.
