We're you single before or after you started degreasing stuff in the bath? :D

And I suppose you only do oil changes on the carpet in the lounge :twisted: What goes around, comes around, so I hope you are good at cleaning your 'washing bin'?

You shouldn't clean parts in the paint booth!

....yes, single here too. Initial carb cleaning was in the kitchen sink.

Naa, I change my oil outside and dump the dirty, hot oil onto a fire ant colony.

I do wetsand parts in the kitchen sink..



And build 'em on the kitchen floor though.



Carbs are best done in the dishwasher with the right detergent!

Those are also very good ways to become single...they are reserved for those that want a divorce but don't want to initiate the war that will soon follow.

Yeah Twostroke you're correct alright. But this house is close to a hundred years old. It was built before electrical wiring, gas heat or air conditioning. When it was built it's only source of light or heat for comfort involved fire. I've lived in it for thirty years. I installed the kitchen floor when I first moved in, it's old and I don't mind a few welding burnt spots. Nothing I'm doing in this house is hurting anything that don't really already need replacing. My only regret is that I have to go outside to use my lathe or tig welder. Not enough room in the house for those. I'm 55 and I've been married for 36 of those. Single and I ain't chasing no women. I have two cats for company and a grandson who loves motorcycles as much as I do. Who else do you know who can wake up in the middle of the night with an idea and try it in his underwear?

Well, at least you got plumbing....when I was a teenager, I lived with my Aunt and Uncle for about 6 months. They were caretakers for a 450acre farm near Springfield, Mo. The only indoor plumbing was water to the kitchen sink. Just never got used to the outhouse. Made me look forward to going to school so I could take a crap. I even hated the weekends. lol , My grandparents owned a piece of property that was on an intersection outside Springfield also. As the city grew, that intersection became more and more busy. One day someone came knocking on the door, wanting to buy a 1/4 acre off his property. He was smart enough not to sell the the exact corner piece, but some a few hundred yards from the intersection. He had 25 acres on that corner and it was square. Well, the property was for a company like Dairy Queen, forget which franchaise it actually was but they wanted to put a burger joint there. He also had no indoor plumbing, except kitchen sink. So, In his agreement to sell was a stipulation that there would be a restroom with an outside door enterance and he was to have a key and access 24/7. Bingo, outhouse problem solved, just involved a 75 yard walk from his house. How says old pig farmers weren't smart.

Single, yea, I think I have reached a point where if I got that way again, I would stay that way. I have a total of 44 years of marriage, but divided up among 4 wives. I know, I know, I'm a slow learner. But I was finely trained...that they have the first word and the last word, so have been with this last one for 25 years.

WHAT??????????????? There is something wrong with that? When I lived in a fancy center hall colonial house I parked my '82 Sabre in the formal dining room in front of the floor to ceiling windows. Kept a custom built Harley Wide Glide parking in the living room of my condo and one day a neighbor came in to borrow something from the kitchen saw the bike and remarked "Is that real?" to which I replied "You'll have to wait for spring to find out". BTW, my daughter liked to sit on it and watch television on Saturday mornings. Oh yeah, been divorced twice.................
