    the great white north is too cold for rust. i have used cut and pasted for the redpower BB.

    today after working at my "real job", i returned to the KINGDOM and popped the head of THE ROCKET.
    that overshot loader sure does make a guy climb up and over but i got it done in just under 1.5 hours. would have been faster but most of my tools are at my "real job".
    i was very pleased to see that THE ROCKET is in good shape when i popped the head off. will have it up and running this summer for sure.

    Well Guys, Shall I Risk It All????

    since we got THE ROCKET home, he feels lonely with out the ford truck that went to the island on the same cat train.

    we are having a nice snow fall and freeze up, so we are thinking of going and getting the ford truck with BAD BUSINESS. so how much does the truck weigh???
