Way to many standards that are needed to be either Right or Left Thinking.
Heck if I had to do all of those things I would never had made it out of puberty.

Sometimes projects just take on a life of their own. I suspect that you will have a splendid rig when the work is done.

Of course, we expect pictures to be posted.  ;D

And, remember that if a Southern truck does not have a rifle rack in the back window, even if it only holds your favorite tactical umbrella, the truck is not finished.  ;)

Everything Else / Truck Woes
« Last post by pop pop on Today at 05:08:58 AM »
Well, we recently purchased a used 2500 Hd Chevy with a Duramax  Diesel and Allison Transmission. It had been in a fire in Pigeon Forge TN. It was sitting in a driveway behind two other cars and the front of the truck melted off(Plastic) and the windshield cracked.

to make a long story short, my son-in-law has spent days fine tuning the truck to meet my needs. We have an RV and it needed to be fitted to pull it. Well the truck had to have anew windshield and unknown to me it was leaking. We had just put an new Pioneer touch screen radio in it.

The windshield leak was directly over the radio and water fried the touch screen. We had to also install a new headliner. Well, I purchased a new touch screen radio($806.00), which the glass installer's insurance company paid for, and we spent 5 hours installing and setting it up last evening. They had installed a new windshield the previous day and we had to slide the new headliner in through the front window opening because it is a crew cab truck and the liner would not go in the open door without bending it. The new radio has just about every thing one can get on it, GPS, Blue Tooth hands free, CD and DVD player, Sierius(S) reciever, and back up camera. All these extras need to have antennas and other set up procedures completed, plus programming.

Well the new to me truck is shaping up, and I am really pleased with it.   

We still need to make a few more tweaks on the radio instillation and I am going to purchase a new set of 10 ply Firestone TransForce tires so it will be 100% road ready for the new camping season coming up. Here's hoping this year will be a good year for Old Pop POp and sweetie?   

I had hopes of spending Feb and first part of March in Florida, however Sweetie need a new hardwood floor in the dining room and entrance hall. There goes my first 6 week trip.

Well, I suppose "every dog needs a bone" every now and then. Why we have been married 46 years and still like each other. I give her a few, with much love attached. She lets me have a few also, (New Truck, New Henry Lever Gun) life is good while it last!

Too me, it is really frustrating tweaking electronics. I don't have the patience for it....

Thanks Taurian!
I wrote the article just for you, Joe. I remembered that you had a TD.  I have used this tool on several occasions  - I think that you would like it as much as I do.

Interesting.

I agree only with most of these, and, indeed, I disagree profoundly with a few of them.

A 60" television!  My bad! I forgot that we live in a high-tech society.

A 60" television, hmm!  I wonder what playing Sniper Elite V2 would be like on that television?  ;D

Actually Taurian, you just about nailed it completely except with a few new aged flavorings.

Here was the real scene last evening. Old Pop Pop was sitting in his lazy boy, watching the Virginian on the tube, reading the Henry's owners manual, then afterwards, picking up "the beauty" and wiping off the finger prints, while applying a thin lawyer of gun oil on the blue barrel and  the brass receiver while looking at the beautiful walnut stock, and may I say with deep admiration. All the while viewing his new found "Big Boy" with the fake fireplace, glowing red in the foreground, located just under the new 60" Smart TV that his daughters purchased for him for Christmans,  while occasionally viewing Trampass, Steve, and the Virginian, in the episode where the three were babysitting 7 abandoned orphaned kids who were coming down with the measles.

Well my fingers hurt after all that.   

Now I ask you, did you nail it? All that was missing was Norman dabbing paint on the canvas.

Now I ask you, "AIN'T LIFE GRAND!"

A vision popped into my head, pop pop.  It was a vision of an elderly gentleman sitting in his favorite easy chair in a softly lit living room - possibly lit by fragrantly soft kerosene lamps as a soft fire rolls in the stone fireplace.  In the background, his favorite music is playing - softly, of course.  In his lap is his beloved Henry and in his hand his favorite soft polishing material and polishing cloth - a soft polishing cloth.  If Norman Rockwell was alive today, I could see him sitting in the corner and recording the scene where one, when viewing the finished painting, could actually smell the fragrance of wood, metal, and gun oil.
