Jeep Update

Santa was very good to me as always.

This year the old merry guy knew about my Jeep that I bought in February and somehow knew I wanted a few cosmetic and practical add-ons.

The most dramatic accessory to date is a stainless steel overlay on the front grill. I spent a few hours yesterday installing the grill. For once everything went fairly well until I got to the end. I had to push some nuts under the grill with my middle finger and get the bolts started on the other side. The task was impossible until I poured some molasses on my finger to make the nut stick in place while I got the bolt started.

The effect of the grill turned out just as I wanted. The Jeep looks angry.

Santa also brought me new factory mirrors that I hope will stay in adjustment and a bikini top for the heat of summer.

Pictures of the Jeep are to follow when it stops raining.

Yes, I said raining. We so desperately need rain and we have had maybe 3 inches in the past 10 days. We are about 16 to 20 inches short for the year depending on location.

I was at my local grocer a few minutes ago picking up man food the football games today. I needed wings, pizza, plus the traditional New Year stuff southerners eat like collards and black eye peas.

There was a gorgeous woman in a line checking out so I pulled in right behind her for a few stolen glances. The little goober faced check out boy said, “Sir, number 7 is open with no waiting!”

Crap…may plans were spoiled and I politely moved the line where the old lady has hair like a cumulus cloud.

Good thing mole asses are stickier than Ned's ass.

Glad your jeep looks angry.

We had a rainy morning here, too. It was so cold it felt like it would snow. I had to close the kitchen window to escape the chill of the north wind. I'd rather do that than put clothes on. I'm lazier than Cooter Brown sometimes.

No, no, Terry, you must only invoke Cooter Brown when discussing a level of intoxication.

Ned's ass can be used on most anything to color up the sentence or statement.

Other please see Terry's Blog for the reference to the above terms.

Jay, sticky nuts are okay when you are trying to work on a Jeep and old a stainless steel nut.

Hey...you guts are pickin' on me!

TerryC said...

Ooops! Sorry if I used Cooter's name inappropriately. But he was probably pretty lazy if he was really drunk.

Could I have been lazier than Ned's ass?

And, Jay, you're repeating yourself like you're drunker than a menopausal Cooter Brown ;)!

Dammit! I wih I had known about the molasses trick. I would have about 3 dozen less busted knuckles and burn scars.

Can't wait for the pics.

Man. I never get to see any hot members of the opposite sex in the check out lane. I just draw attention from the group home crowd.
