    I made lemonade out of lemons. My repair now includes a z06 grill upgrade for no additional cost. I’m loving Autonation Collision.

    Kent at Autonation collision center did an amazing job. New bra and changed out my grill. This one looks so much better. He’s taken care of me twice now and the work they’ve done has been perfect.

    Vette owners already have a "creepy old guy" stigma, and some pedo-asshat had to go and put a neon sign on theirs. For fucks sake!!

    I do not take Corvid-19 lightly so please do not be offended by the title, I was just playing off the home schooling my grandkids are doing. As some of you may know last month Debbie was not at Corvettes & Coffee nor was our Vette. Debbie took the Vette up north by herself so she could have some alone time with the Vette, (She did wonder which I would miss more?). She spent the weekend and returned without the Vette (I'm not missing her anymore, but the Vette is still not back now I miss it). This was planned so that I could re-do the entire garage, Floor, Paint and Cabinets. We were planning to go get the Vette this weekend but that is not happening. Thought I would share a few pictures of what has gotten done and some of the steps that were done. The cabinets are in the works but they are on the back burner at work as production for profit takes priority. First a few before Pics. The floor was ruined by yours truly over 10 years ago, So time to finally fix -it Step 1 was to remove all of the old epoxy floor coating, This was done with a large diamond head grinder, hand grinder and shop vacuums. There was good adhesion on most of the stem walls only need to remove any thing loose Chalked any cracks in the expansion joints and used a clear sealer bonding agent on the new porous concrete. Brushed a base color and applied vinyl color chip, They were a non-stock blend and were ordered 1 week ahead. We are doing what is called a full broadcast (full coverage)Base coat of new Epoxy going on. Full coverage of the chips before any loose chips removed. Loose chips removed, Prepared for clear top coat Finished floor 24 hours after top coat. Time to get the painting going, Normally I would have painted first and would suggest that to any one, but it was a timing issue. Close-up of floor, Pained some walls and moved some things back into the Garage. HMMMMM now where is that Vette...….. Sure hope she brings it back..

    So to finish off my garage last weekend I trimmed out the cabinets and this weekend I have been filling them up and sorting through my junk (stuff). They added a lot of storage we did not have before. The Technical Stuff: I built then on a 6" tall metal frame with adjustable powder coated legs to help install on the sloped garage floor. They are stacked actual two cabinets braking at the top of the black band which are actually drawers. The right cabs are 133" x 110" the ones in front of the Vette are 119" x 110" and the small uppers are 48" x 47". All are 3/4 thick white melamine interiors with red laminated doors with white on the back, All shelves are 1" thick to handle additional weight. The black is textured with micro-dots and are matte finished to create additional contrast. Originally I planned on handles but once they were in Debbie really liked the smooth look so no handles at this time. dmdrummer you were so right the floor looks even better with the Vette on it.

    We only stopped for a couple weeks in Feb to starve the flu bug to death. We've had no fear of going out during the "lockdown" to places that were open, but there just weren't very many open. Once Ducey gave the all clear, barbers, salons, and restaurants R us. I personally refrained from hugging complete strangers at Lowe's and Harbor Freight, since I started requiring a formal introduction first. Then finding an aisle without the social distancing markers on the floor became the next problem. Walmart complicated things by making them all one-way, but thankfully our local Fry's allowed the friendly closer contact until reaching the checkout.

    This morning I went to the garage to get in my Vette and go get covid antibody testing. I noticed there was a tiny edge of a piece of paper sticking out of my side view mirror. I pulled it out and it’s a note from a Good Samaritan saying someone hit me in a parking lot and the license plate number of the truck that hit and ran. Didn’t leave her name on it. I pulled my car out and looked at the front, yep grill is smashed and the clear bra is torn. The bra saved my paint though. Thankfully for covid I only went one place this entire week other than in my reserved parking spot at work and home. Walmart on Wednesday for 10 minutes after work. I guessed it had to be then. I spent today super sleuthing and had a very nice police officer helping, the truck had been sold and not RE-registered so it wasn’t easy. After a full day, I found who owned it, had the officer call him and make him admit it. He admitted he hit me and it was Wednesday at Walmart. The officer told him if he tells the truth to his insurance company, I won’t press charges. He agreed he would. The awesome officer completed his report so if the story changes later, it’s documented. Now I get to file another claim. He told the officer he’d like to pay cash and not have me claim it. LOL, NO, he hit and ran and has the audacity to even ask that. I never let my clients take money rather than involving insurance no matter what the sob story is from the other party. People hitting me is getting OLD. Lonnie: now you know why I park at the end of parking lots. Point taken. I wish I could thank the Good Samaritan and give her a 6 ft away covid hug. She saved me. I would’ve seen the damage at some point and blamed lonnie. 😂

    A horse and a chicken are playing in a meadow. The horse falls into a mud hole and is sinking. He calls to the chicken to go and get the farmer to help pull him out to safety. The chicken runs to the farm but the farmer can't be found. So he drives the farmer's BMW back to the mud hole and ties some rope around the bumper. He then throws the other end of the rope to his friend, the horse, and drives the car forward saving him from sinking! A few days later, the chicken and horse were playing in the meadow again and the chicken fell into the mud hole. The chicken yelled to the horse to go and get some help from the farmer. The horse said, "I think I can stand over the hole!" So he stretched over the width of the hole and said, "Grab for my penis and pull yourself up." And the chicken did and pulled himself to safety. Moral of the Story: If you're hung like a horse, you don't need a BMW to pick up chicks.

    My hat is off to you for undertaking that insulation project! I've been meaning to get up in my attic to assess the quality of my insulation since I moved into my current house, and that was three years ago. If you would like to come perform this service at my house, I will provide the ladder and pay you with cinnamon rolls. Just let me know...

    I just laughed out loud while sitting all alone! I thought of you last week but didn’t want to poke the bear. I was watching a young adult - one of those who look like pasty no sun basement gamers that never working and sponge off parents - he was a cart collector. His parents must’ve made him get a job. He looked so grumpy walking around the parking lot collecting carts. I watched him for a few minutes because it was comical. I could tell by the scowl on his face he was thinking “why doesn’t everyone put their carts back so I can go back to my basement and game? I don’t want to work” so I left my cart by my car because I was on his parents side. He needs to work. 😂

    We need this crud to be over. I miss everyone. I got gas once this entire month. We take the 77 out once a week and burn tires in empty streets and come home. A big night out is going to the store, getting ice cream and wondering for the next week if we got covid. 😂

    '77 looks great. I do drink some corona now and then so I can get immune to the bug that's going around too.

    OK! This happened today, as I was driving to work this morning about 5:45 AM I felt fire in my left leg. I thought boy that really hurts, then I felt even more pain and fire in my leg. I thought I know this pain that is the sting of a Scorpion. I got to the side of the road and shook my leg pulled the cuff of my pants up nothing there. Nothing on the ground, nothing in the car. It must have been a sight an old man jumps out of a Vette and is shaking his leg and dancing around. Decided I was not going to pull my pants off (but I thought about it). Went home and as soon as I was out of the Vette off came the pants. Still nothing but my leg was on fire. OK so I have been stung before and knew it would hurt for awhile. I decided to go to work after changing pants and looking though the car. It is drive your Vette to work Friday so off I went. About 1 1/2 hours later I was having trouble swallowing, then my lips started to get numb. I thought gee this is different than the other times. So I headed back home only to get about half way there, while talking to Debbie as I drove. I started having other symptoms of a funny taste in my mouth and vision issues. So I went straight to the emergency room. They got me in really quickly and I ended up having to be given anti-venom to prevent more reactions. After about one hour I was good except for my leg which even now is still on fire. It was determined that I was stung 3 times on my left calf and ankle. So I knew I should check the car again because there was no way Debbie was going anywhere near the car if there was a Scorpion inside it. Hmmm A SCORPION INSIDE A STINGRAY HOW ODD? With a black light I looked through the car. I eventually found its tail sticking out from under the carpet behind the drivers seat where the seat track mount is, I poked at him he was very much alive still. Thank god for Shop-Vacs, I feel a lot better having found it.
