    Yeah I have that kind of time, grow pumpkins, wait till them ripen then stew them down? I can get a can of Festal pumpkin 5 miles away at the grocery store.

    As a younger man, I would always hear "dads" talk about hunting with their kids and how they got just as much enjoyment, if not more, from their children's experiences and successes than their own. I always thought they were full of it and that's just something people said. Many years later, I finally get it.

    Wait till you are a Grandpa you get to make up for all the regrets of things you didn't have time for when you were a parent.

    This gives me anxiety to even think about.

    On a side note, I'll never forget what my dad said to me when I killed my first deer. "Well, you finally killed one. Now you just need to get laid and get your driver's license, and you'll be a man." I was 14. :lol:

    Your dad is obviously very wise and tells it like it is without mincing his words.

    Driving your truck after a fresh tune up and brake job. Amazing how you can get use to the light vibrations, brakes I knew were about toast, rotors had a pretty good warp that shimmied the steering wheel and pulsed the pedal, still had about .075" of pad.

    I was surprised how easly the spark plugs were, literally took about 35 minutes for all 6. Easiest change I have done on anything knewer than mid 90's, usually one that is near impossible. The way Toyota designed the front calipers so if you just wanted to do a pad swap, which I never do, always pads and rotors, all you need is two straight screwdrivers and needle nose pliers.

    Factory plugs and front pads/rotors lasted nearly 8 years, just shy of 53k on the ODO.

    Changing just 6 spark plugs in a pick up just isn't right. You have to have 8 cylinders man.

    I hear ya, but $50-60k for a full size is hard to justify and payments/insurance wasn't achievable 7 years ago. No way am I touching that idea in today's market :lol:

    When I was much younger I had an Isuzu 4x4 pickup, that was one tough truck I loved it, it only had 4 cylinders but it would go anywhere.

    I learned some excellent news this morning Rascal Flatts will no longer be recording or performing music. That baby talk singing made me want to punch something.

    I thought Rascall Flatts was the worst think to happen to country radio in 50 years, and then Dan and Shay came along and said 'hold my Cosmo'.
