Re: Faulkner gets a Redo

At least you are paying attention to things. I know of a guy that lost a sister in law to a toilet collapse. A funny story... I wish I could tell it like he did. Something like 'She rode the toilet like it was a hobby horse' , and the flooring and plumbing gave away. He doesn't tell this story the s...

These do work but have a tendency to trap more air than the old system. I found that if I back off the brake adjustments completely, this leaves n...

Re: Dick's '59s

Re: Oh, the weather outside is frightful...

Re: Oh, the weather outside is frightful...

Just waxed the cross country skis if this gets any deeper. The weather service said 1 to 3 inches. Must have meant some where else.
