    Not working today. We pretty much never work on Sundays, no matter what. We are about a week behind, but looking at the weather forecast it is supposed to be clear and sunny all this week so I am confident that we can catch back up.

    No that one is significantly more $$ this one rolls really easy though.

    Phone books are no problem its the steel tine leaf rakes that mess it up. Makes one hell of a noise.

    I threw in the towel on my diesel truck project. I just don't have the time to get it done before winter. I'm in the process of trying to unload that and the parts truck I bought for it at the moment. I'm gonna take a good hit on it, but hey everyone makes mistakes sometimes.

    Anyway, I bought this today:

    Its a 1992 Chevy K2500 has a 350 in it. The truck only has 62,000 miles on it, and overall its in good shape. Runs beautiful. About the only thing it needs is a cab corner and the dent in the door popped out. It came with a plow but its an ancient Western cable controlled one. Thats going up for sale ASAP. The one good thing about the diesel truck failure is I got the Boss plow mount and wiring out of it that will all go on this truck. I picked it up for a good deal, its older but like I said it runs very well and will make a good backup/extra truck.

    No at this point I'd rather have the $1800 from the body shop to plow their parking lot than get a truck painted. The only reason I had #2 painted was because the body was in such good shape. This one is great for a 20 year old truck, but it would need some work to get it to the point where it could be painted. And at the end of the day, its still a 20 year old truck and I wont keep this one as long as I'll have the '99 so its not worth it to me.

    And I dont think navy blue would go with red interior very well haha
