Post a random pic thread!

Looked out the front door over the weekend and saw a large X in the sky. How random is that?

I am too dumb to post photos

but the sign about the highway

being the most dangerous place in America

is very true, especially now,

we have dumb people on smart phones,

who think they can drive while looking down....idiots.

I don't have any random pics of anything besides my 88, so here's one of the test fit of the new carpet kit and repainted cargo trim bits.

I hope you have a PTO on your wago and a PTO powered, tow behind, lawn mower for that front lawn! My whole lot could fit in your front grass.

Here are Coast Guard Cutters KIMBALL (WMSL 756) and MIDGETT (WMSL 757) underway, just off the coast of Waikiki. These ships were both commissioned at the same time, at Sand Island Hawaii (dual commissionings almost never happen).

I will be aboard KIMBALL for a month coming up, for testing. Then again, underway for 2 weeks. We'll test MIDGETT early next year.

Random Coast Guard pic.

Here is one of mine.




I was tempted to say something that sounded dirty but this is my 19 1/2 year old cat attempting to climb into the fireplace because the fire is not yet warm enough for him. He has done this ever since he was a baby.

Appears to be conjuring a demon or plotting your demise for putting him thru 19.5 years of your human idiocy. Kneel before him and beg forgiveness.

No he doesn't, he is completely oblivious to the fact that fire burns, it is just warmth to him. He has always loved heat. Somewhere I have a picture of him as a baby doing the exact same thing. He has a chair in front of the fire and sometimes when it pops he will get a burning ember on him and just let it burn his hair and never so much as twitch. He will also stay as close as he can get to the fire until he gets so hot we fear it will make him sick and have to move him.

Very nice view. I have had that view a few times from the Jarvis. Wow, that was forty something years ago.

What is your mission on these new cutters?

Am I supposed to post a random pic with every post?

I have a drainage ditch on side of my house, lots of turtles. I feed them scrapes sometimes. We had some boiled crawfish for lunch the other day and so did the turtles.

Not totally random, but certainly unexpected. I was looking at some of the old documentation that was in the glovebox when I bought the J20 and thought I'd see what some of the PO's addresses looked like. Here's a Google street view image from about a year and a half before I bought it. Thought it was kind of cool to see where it used to live.

High quality junk here: intro thread and slow build thread

Did you know? Willys is just Willis spelled differently, but pronounced the same. Neither Willy nor his apostrophe are involved.

Almost 9 years ago Flint and Bob once told me that Wrightwood looks to be a Jeep town. Yes! Yes! It is!


This little gem showed up behind my house today. It belongs to one of the camps up here, and they have owned it for over 40 years.
After speaking to these guys hunting flat rocks in the wash, they said they need to find a new top for it.
Anyone know where to find one??????
