Obviously, it's an aluminum cooking pot.

Oh, you mean you are referring to the belt-driven diaphragm pump next to it? Maybe it's a bilge pump or it may have been used to supply fresh water to domestic fixtures. Maybe something else. It needs a new cog belt, in any case.

Ahh. A pump of some sort. Pumps are good things. They can save your life.

Dualfual? no wonder you can't say it three times....
I had to have a toddler pronounce that for me, HA!
Rudy,
Obviously the object on the galley sink is a Steam Punk Artificial Heart (preJarvic)!

Dear Chuck, You have pointed out correctly, that I do obsess about things until I end up with them.

Sorry I missed the Truck Texting the other night. I actually wanted to make it but fell asleep. 7PDT turned out to be toooo late for yooper time.

They cut the heck out of the property before I bought it so I had the neighbor walk his excavator over and stump some acres. Its such a contrast to be on the top of a cleared hill compared to in the dense woods of the old bush.

Here is the most open spot at the old bush...

I ran the cement mixer into the tractor...

I secretly cried then my in-laws duct taped the fender on. That gave me hope so I got out the flashing and zippy screws and made it really ugly!

Thats too bad. sorry to hear that.

It could be worse though, you could have hit the building inspector's Mercedes Benz as he popped by for a surprise visit.

DualFuel, the way you handled that duct tape job, you folks just might be rednecks for shure! Now, do you have a matching set of cool whip containers that you use for cereal and soup bowls? You have to have a matching set of at least 6 to qualify! :wink:

If you want to take it to the next level, you gotta' have at lease 6 Campbell soup cans, all the same size of course, to use for your Sunday dinner drinkin' cups too!

The Cool Whip container lids make great frisbees for the kids, or for your 'coon dog to catch.

And don't forget to save those plastic milk jugs for the moonshine man!! :wink:

I was almost there

Postby graydawg » Wed Oct 27, 2010 3:21 pm

well I busted one of my cool whip containers now I need two more to make the set, I do have a set of jelly jars with the handles on the side that work great and they are pint size they hold a 16 ounce beer just perfect. you can also use 3 to 4 inch cane to make glasses out of they work for a while, when the old lady throws all the glasses at you, for coming in drunk again, it don't hurt as bad when she gets lucky and hits you in the eye with one of em. the china ones hurt if you get hit with one of them thier plates. I actually do live in a trailer park all the way to the end of the road, in between 2 wrecking yards and that's not a joke either. It has been grandfathered in, it has been here so long, there was a gas station in the front but was tore down at least 25 years ago, all this and still on Hwy 80. hell I may even be a redneck

Graydawg, if you live in a mobil home park between two wrecking yards.... Why- That's redneck heaven! :D

And you can't beat the jelly jars with handles for your juice glasses.

Do you use TP for blowing your nose, or do you use that uppity stuff called kleenex? You can catch alot of redneck wanabees using kleenex instead of TP in thier pickups or cars- it's always a dead giveaway that they are just pretending! 8)
