racergeo, I just may do that.

My wife thanks you for even mentioning her least favorite foto.

I offered to get a Trumpet for her to ride for a feminine foto.

My beer supply money is being withheld for an undetermined period of time.

SPARKY, I'm contemplating a fund raising project for Rufus.

The new Rufus decals are being designed and printed now.

Doris was on me to clean up my computer desk.

I opened the drawer and found some spare images and Ray posted them for me.

No captions. I think you can relate to all of them.

Just one of our new surprise postings.

That's a beautiful piece of work fERD, does it have a matching brush to go with it?

  Freud, that's a beautiful piece, but nothing compared to the proposed poster. I have my $20 ready!

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

  11x14 would be fine but any would look good hanging in the living room next to Von Dutch with two pin stripping brushes in his ears. I'm quite the art connoisseur.

On a special order, they could be sized to fit under the toilet seat lid.

Since our wives always put the seat down, they would NEVER see it.

I wouldn't wanna disrupt a conversation about toilet seats...but I will, anyway.  :)  I figger Freud's asleep and I won't bug him.  Since RLS keeps me workin graveyard and swing shift....well, here I am and the traditional Friday post is on the server.
http://www.target550.com/gallery/67_pneumatic%20mag%20switches_bending%20stainless%20steel%20lines_starter%20switches/index.html

Here's what I posted on FaceBook:
It's Friday...albeit a rather early one. Since I prepared the Target 550 release last night, its ready to go. Matter of fact, it's on the server now. This is the description used on the index page:
"Hume altered the pneumatic mag switches, Jason is bending stainless steel lines and Dave wired the starter switches." ...My favorite part of it is the stainless lines and seeing the way Jason Hosking works with the metal to turn out some absolutely beautiful pieces. Seeing the air supply tubes being fabricated and fit is like watching jewelry being created. Ya gotta check it out.

Well, I got other work to get done while the sun shines (somewhere over Australia) so I'm outta here.

Enjoy,

It's reassuring to have Ray Therat cover my backside.

I am happy he uses Charmin.

Racer.....I just received the latest "submarine issue"  blue salt peter pills.

I'm surprised that is your desire.

Just so u don't overuse them, I will send them to your wife and she can dispense them to u.

There's a new update on the Target550 site.  I put it there yesterday, but neglected to tell anyone.  Duh.  So shoot me.

It has more fotos of the air lines for shifting and other functions and a really kool gasket setup to keep salt from escaping the wheel enclosures (pants) and soiling the liner's inner dainties.  (I dunno...can ya call a pair of fire-breathing hemis, "dainties"?)

http://www.target550.com/gallery/68_more_air_lines_throttle_bell_crank_and_wheel_well_seal/index.html

More news as it's fit to print...or something like that.
