Just got a text from Gogs -

Well, I guess we're making a LOT of progress . . .  :roll:

We are NOT rebuilding . . . We are reloading.

Hi Slim

You asked about the 1 by 4 in the truck cab, did you ever hear about the Arfon's bros wall.

The story was they did not talk to each other, so they split the barn right down the center and built a full length wall in the barn so they both could work and not look or speak to each other.

Maybe the 1 by 4 is the start of a Arfon wall in the cab , ha ha

Dik

I'm hoping to get a nightly call from the secret phone at the lake. If I do, I'll ask as to how Dr G and his band of merry men are going and will post it here...

You are a good man Lynchy. Maybe we need a code name for your connection at the lake so he/she doesn't get caught?

And yeah! What's happening with the jag??!

I'm sure 'Big Lynchy' will be along shortly, until then, there's a build thread and a bit of video on the Jag, it's a beast! :

About 4:30 yesterday, I was thinking, "Yeah, they're probably just finishing up a driver's meeting".

The game is afoot - and any good info, or even lies, for that matter, would be relished.

They are not understanding our sympathy pains.

Their struggles may be bringing us down.

What we need is a report with huge numbers for each entry.

Then we would no longer be sympathizing.

We would be rejoicing.
