    Took the dogs out the side door because I did not want them barking at the neighbors party. Went down by the wood line and there was a wood chuck, had to call the dogs and promise them treat to go back to the house. Went back out with the judge and it was gone. Dang it I would looking forward to some gunplay.

    uummmm barking dogs might disturb the partying neighbor's but a gun being shot won't. I listen to the wife's house mutt barking because the neighbor's dog is barking. That doesn't bother me and I don't give it a thought. A gun shot or two close on the other hand, that gets my attention. :poke: In your defense though, I've been known to shoot a few skunks in town. But everyone knows it usually is me and it is one less skunk to worry about. The always ask if I got it the next time they see me. :evilgrin:

    Said it before, say it again- the 4.0 straight 6 is a marvel machine. Just a dream to work on. Like fun to work on, because it happens so rarely but when it does it just makes sense and is so easy.

    I wouldn't call the process of repairs to be enjoyable. But, it is satisfying when the work is done and I know I saved myself a ton of money doing it myself. Biggest challenge I have is deciding the project will take so long that the time away from my wife and kids may not be worth it.

    A world that makes about as much sense as a soup sandwich. Glad you got out. Every time I think I'm out...they pull me back in.

    O.K. I have to admit, I do not understand the "soup sandwich" part of that.

    It’s just one step short of the acronym FUBAR being applicable.

    OMG! I just googled it...how dumb. FUBAR is and understandable thing. Soup sandwich no. "Brings to mind soup being poured over bread?!"
    Must be my age because first thing that came to my mind is dunking toasted cheese into tomatoes soup...lol

    If you actually tried to make a “soup sandwich” it would be an absolute mess and it just wouldn’t work.

    That’s the whole idea. :lol:

    Have you ever watched a dog chase his tail and thought boy dogs are sure easily amused ? Then you realize that you are watching a dog chase his tail.
