Well i was out running around yesterday afternoon and somebody hit my truck and didnt leave any info for me. Its not bad, i got hit on the drivers side behind the gas cap. All that needs fixed is the tail light. The body just has little damage, not enough to bother fixing. But its just the fact that the person didnt leave any info. I would have just called and said give me the money for a tail light and thanks for being a good person and leaving your info so I could call about my truck

Yeah, you got bored...........

You and I both have been MIA for a while. Glad to see you back. You wouldnt believe whats happened to my explorers. One is gone, the other is completely herculined and tows a camo boat every weekend. Being bored just means you get to do cool mods :)

well it started because i didnt want my garden to turn south tonight. It is below 40 right now and I have very young plants in my garden so i put mason jars over them to help keep them warm over night

I have beans, cucumber, eggplants, and tomatos. the cucumbers, eggplants, and tomatos are under glass tonight. I drove up by my garden when i got home with the mason jars and just lost track of what was going on and then im trying to climb things. Im sure i will get bored over the summer and do something cool we will just have to wait and see

Well I got home from class today and there were 5 31x10.5x15 tires sitting in front of my door at the house. There were also some new break pads. I need to do some work on my truck before the tires go on, ball joints ect., but that is going to happen in the near future.
