Looks good! You're a far better painter than I am, that's for sure. I can build/fix most things, but my artistic talent is very close to zero.

Siding material, it's like a composite material pretty lightweight stuff yet nice and strong..It's a pretty simple project really..Having all the tools helps..

I don't fish (though I live on a lake, go fig), and I do not have a trailer, so I gotta ask...."how do the fishing poles stay on the trailer when flying down the freeway at 70 mph??"

I know, I had to ask.

two Strokes our friend RoadRogue talked me into the poorboy conversion, that's one creative guy that Todd dude..anyway I was waiting for a guy to make and send me a 4" pulley for the longest time and I still don't have it, I did however make my own pulley and now I have a conversion on the bike and it's still in the testing stages, I'm staying around the house until I know it's highway worthy...Here's a photo of the steak I had at your favorite steak house in floresville.., largest potato I ever did see.
just after eating that steak I went to the doc and was told I have diabete's ha ha I wonder why...??? Steak and Taco's Steak and Taco's

Well,It shouldn't take much longer for you to get the miles on it. So far no problems with mine, but I havn't really put that many miles on it since the conversion. It was supposed to be sold, but the guy gave me $1500 down and I havn't heard from him again. So I am putting it back on the market soon. I'm tired of worrying about it and keeping it exercised and all. I did put a couple hundred miles on it though after doing the poorboy. It isn't like I havn't waited long enough for the rest of the money...He gave me that $1500 in like Aug last year and was gonna pay it off in a couple months.
Besides the potato being BIG, the Stake ain't bad either....Hope you liked the place. I don't eat out often but when I do, I like just a few places.

Yeh my wife was very impressed, and daughter too...The server's were very polite and considerate, the Steak was outstanding and that baked potato was huge with all the trimmings, but my wife about died when they brought us out some old fashioned bread pudding, it was so good, I never had bread pudding before :shock: , but I must say it was quite tasty, I also went for a run down to Rigsby Ave.. to try those Tamales you said were so good, this guy claims they are the best in Texas, well I don't know about that but they are pretty freakin good, I got pork and chicken, yumm yum...Thanks two strokes man, my best friend here in town forgot to tell me about this place.. :evil: Reubens' is a great place to get Tamales on Rigsby Ave. , people stand for two hours in line at the holiday's to get their order..that's just insane.. But I gotta say, there pretty gosh darn good..

Hey L.Beave,

If I could just get my boat back up and running...and some other work....I know some great fishin spots at Braunig for Reds and Some nice size cats, Usually in the 5lb range for the cats. Hmmmm, maybe I need to move up fixing the boat on my things to do list.
My old fishin buddy fell in love or lust, one of the two, and don't go fishin anymore....

Calaveras lake is really good fishing too, years ago [early 80's I had a small flatbottom boat I would putt round on and I'd go to both lakes, I love fishing, I will go with you, I can fish for hours, shoot for day's... It's fun off the bank too, then you camp out, either way, as long as I have a line in the water is all I care about..Two Strokes it's on man, I'll go fishing anytime..The park security guy wanted to buy my bike...ha ha...I said sorry man...I'd never sell it...It's a great bike..

Go figure....I never really had that much good fishin days at Calavaras...So started going to Braunig...Found some good spots there.....Naturally it worked out that way. Calavaras park enterence is like 3 miles from my house, where Braunig is about 15mi....I gotta find some time to start fishin again.....Now which project do I put on the back burner...The shade shed for the hogs, The chicken coop for the chicks that are ready to go outside (about 20 of them), The biofilter I am building for my fish farm, using 6 55 gal drums, making the nest boxes for the Parrots before breeding season is totally over, cutting the grass/weeds that are now 3 feet tall, finishing the garage extension and front end with doors I started 6 months ago, or getting the garden weeded before they take over completely...Now those are just the priority one things to do, The list after that is a few pages long....

I keep saying, I gotta go back to work to get some rest. This retirement is too much to handle. At least then I could afford to pay someone to do all these things I am behind on. And of course, finding time to get some miles on the bikes. And of course now, go fishin...
