    Why are you in pain??
    Crohn's Disease. One of God's little tests.

    Saturday-Haircut, check out a few used ext.cab Z71's..Helped a buddy move his disabled Corvette(see the tales of Freezing cold, car dollies, and a clapped out '82 Collector's Edition Corvette thread for the whole sordid novel), froze my ass off.
    Sunday-Check out a few more used trucks online, replaced fan/alt belt on son's S-10 Blazer, added coolant that he conveniently forgets to check along with everything else(and he wonders why I won't allow him to drive my Camaro)...cook dinner for family, help buddy remove nest from top of the Cross-Fire induction on Corvette. What a sad mess....plug wires are wasted, as is the harness going into the distributor. He's threatening a Performer intake and a Holley.
    Today-sitting on ass, do some more truck shopping(want to have by spring turkey season).

    finished fabricating the side mounting plates for the '55's
    new radiator and shroud and then did a quick test fitting
    before going to Palestine to pick up some stuff
    (on Saturday)

    picked up two new heavy duty belts at NAPA and
    a tubing cutter and flaring tool at Lowes in Palestine
    (on Saturday)

    decided to slot the four top and bottom holes so the position of the
    ac condenser can be adjusted without loosening
    the radiator mounting bolts (on Saturday)

    ordered a new mechanical fan and spacer from Summit
    Racing (on Saturday)

    drilled additional holes in the radiator mounting bracket so
    that the condenser can be adjusted without having to
    loosen the radiator mounting bolts (on Sunday)

    Sunday morning I cleaned up the shop and put the tools up
    while listening to a local Gospel singing on the radio.

    Heated up a big pot of Zuppa Tuscana Soup and
    made a beer run and then rooted for one loosing team
    and one winning team (on Sunday afternoon)

    (footnote: made a special point to email my step-son
    and thank him for the tungsten drill bits that he gave
    me last Christmas)

    Went to a Studebaker meet in Kinston, NC. Because of the rain, cold weather and threat of snow very few showed up, and nobody broke the Studes out for the bad weather driver. Most of us drove at least two hours. Those that did show had a good time. Lot's of BS time. It did snow on the way home and had a beautiful white yard by the time I got home. Thankfully it had been raining prior to the snow so the roads did not get bad. Watched basketball on the tube the rest of the day.
    Church Sunday morning and then I spent Sunday afternoon putting some insulation on the water lines in the garage from the new water pump and purification system. Yeh, I waited until the last minute. Then watched some football.
    19degrees when I woke up this morning! Now, for southeastern North Carolina, that's cold!

    Re: what did you do this weekend?

    I took down a 40 foot maple tree in town for a guy I work with. Couldn't just drop the tree like you would in a fence row or field somewhere, so we took it down from the top. He had a company who does that give him a quote, and it was $2200. So, my brother (who burns wood for heat) and I helped him out a little by doing it for free. He gave me an old chainsaw and some money for fuel, but other than that I didn't really get anything out of it other than helping my brother heat his house and my co-worker save a couple g's. And we worked on it all day Saturday. I won't be volunteering to do that again right away-- I'm a little stiff and sore right now.

    On Saturday morning I drove across the state of North Carolina from the coast almost to Asheville to attend a pig pickin' put on a bunch of motorcycle guys from Maxton - S.N.A.R.T. Racing. This place was IN THE STICKS! Lots of fun with great folks and SUPER pig. Also, terrific venison. Lots of drinking and smoking and lying - I only participated in one of the three. Thanks guy for having a car guy like me!

    Sunday, finished driving back and did nothing once I got home. Nothing is something I'm good at.

    Hope y'all had a good one, too.

    Dan

    Saturday I went to the dump, stopped to get gas for my welder, stopped at my favorite parts store, back home again, did some more bodywork on the Fairlane.
    Sunday I worked most of the day in the shop, took a break to watch the Patriots/Chargers game, back to doing bodywork. Finished up about 8pm.
