General BS and Laughs / New job
« on: October 12, 2013, 04:25:05 PM »
Last week on Tuesday I started a new job at a place called Kerotest, they build gas valves, it is a union shop, great wage, will have great benefits, they are employee owned, and a bunch of other good things.  Just happen to have this job fall into my lap, a friend of mine called me and told me to look at it on Craigslist last month. Now it looks like next year I might just buy a newer car.

General BS and Laughs / The Fury is now gone :(
« on: August 13, 2013, 01:21:12 PM »
Well I finally sold the Fury last night, was pretty sad to see her go, had such big plans for her,but, such short pockets. She really made that Ford rollback sag when she was on the back. Her new home is in Ebensburg, PA, just past Johnstown. Someday I will have a nice old cruiser, but not just now.

General BS and Laughs / Had one hell of a wreck this morning
« on: August 20, 2012, 10:14:36 AM »
yep the title says it all, this morning at 8:40, I got T-boned in my delivery car going back to the shop. I got hit by an Acura Vigor in my Nissan Versa delivery car. She was braking hard at around 40mph, hit the passenger side and flipped me on my left side. Lots of nice helpful people opened the hatch and let me out, was just a little dazed and rattled, but, no cuts or bumps. I will feel it tomorrow. The thing that sucks is pending the accident investigation I am suspended from work, eventhough the woman that hit me admitted fault. So I hope I will be back to work next week. Just keep me in your prayers.

General BS and Laughs / Going through the big D and don't mean Dallas
« on: June 01, 2012, 12:08:09 PM »
 The wife and I have decided to call it quits after 14 years, many things both of us have done wrong, one not being forgiving(not me) as the other and other things I just will not mention because it is just too private. Just keep us in your prayers, the boys  know and we made up a good arrangement so I see the boys everyday and have them every other weekend.

General BS and Laughs / The Neon was sideswiped today
« on: February 22, 2011, 11:21:46 AM »
I have no luck what so ever, last years snowmagedon my 99 Intrepid ES gets totaled on the way home from work, today with the amount of snow on the ground and bad tires I decided to stay home from work with the kids. I watched the Penn Hills plow truck plow the street both down and up no problems there, this was at 6:15, I go back in the house come out at 12:15 clean off the car, not really looking at it since it had about 6 inches of snow on it, just wanted to clean it off. Take the kids for pizza at the shop I work at on the weekends, come out after eating and see the some jagoff swiped the r/r door, 1/4 and some of the rear facia, now my blood is boiling. Friday the wind blows the rear screen door off the house now the car gets hit WHAT THE F@#K.

General BS and Laughs / Bought a 2000 Dodge Neon ES yesterday
« on: March 28, 2010, 04:24:27 PM »
Well I finally got another car, I bought a 2000 Dodge Neon ES, silver, black interior, 2.0L,auto,
P/W(front only) P/L, P/sunroof,tilt, delay wipers, 66,000 miles(one owner), alloy wheel no rust, a few dents and scratches and cigarette burns on the front seats drivers door panel and rug.
Runs great paid $4,500 out the door, the dealer wanted $5,995, so I got a bargain, needs a few things to make her 100%, but, I like it, hope she serves me as good as the Intrepid did.

    I did find the window sticker in the glove box with the owners manual, she listed for $17,000 new in 2000.

General BS and Laughs / So my Intrepid got totaled today
« on: February 05, 2010, 05:15:11 PM »
Do not worry about me, I'm okay, the car on the other hand not so well. I was driving home from work to pick up the kids from daycare, the road was snow covered, as I started up the hill, a chick in a Mazda 626 slid across the road(she was comming down the hill) hit my car and both airbags popped. If you look at the car you can hardly tell I had a wreck, she it me on the L/F corner, the only tell tale sign it where the impact beam went threw the front facia a couple of inches to the right of the fog lamp. The really sucky thing is I have a trunk full of parts I was going to put on the car, so now I'll need another car until I can get my new(newer) truck.
All I can say is

General BS and Laughs / Boy did I Fuc#-up my ankle today
« on: October 01, 2009, 06:20:09 PM »
So my nephew and I were wokring on the USS Intrepid ES, needed to replace the messed up inner and outer tie rod ends, so the damn car wants to fight me everystep of the way.
First I snap off 2 bolts(in a non-critical area) then we cna get one bolt started and tightened,buty, not the other side(driverside). After much cussing, and at this point I was laying on top of the massive 3.2L 24 valve power plant, I need to get out of the engine bay, so I slide off the front of the car
 
                                     and
 
 
 
 
     I land on the outer side of my left foot, hearing all sorts of pops and cracks, nice size bulging near the ankle, time to call 911 and take a nice ambulance ride to Shadyside Hospital. After 3 hours of much relaxing, the Doc tells me lucky, nothing broken, just severely sprained, so I hope the nephew(who is in school to be an auto tech can finish the USS Intrepid ES tomorrow all I got to say is  and I peacefully, oh well, just another day in the life of me, no luck what so ever, and by the way next friday(Oct 9th ) is my last day of school, go figure. Time for bed the Vicadine is starting to work.
