I get one of those almost every day. I can't understand why anyone responds to these things. Why would somebody you've never heard from, in a country you've never been too want to give you some millions of dollars? Still, there has to be at least one dumbshit out there...

I had heard of a guy that used fake emails to talk with these people. He'd arrange trips there and have them meet him at the airport. Then when they'd email him when he didn't show, he'd make up some story and tell them he was coming the next week.

I had a clients mom take a check that she received in the mail to go cash from Monster Energy drinks. Check for $3200 for her to cover her beat up Ford Taurus with Monster Energy drink vehicle wrap and then she would get $1200 a month for advertising but would have to pay a some up front to the Advertising company...yaddayaddayadda...She was devastated that Monster would run a scam on her like that...I tried to explain it to her but she was still mad at Monster when she left

Finally getting a rain. It's pouring. Lake Whitney is in my yard.

The fertilizer went out 3 days ago.

This is good.

Well, that fertilizer is now in the nearest stream, heading to the gulf. That's just as well as you'd have to mow the crap anyway.

LoL.

It's over a few hundred acres. We're going to mow it, wrap it up, and sell it.

This is happening. It's still a little rough but it'll bolt up and work as is.



Time to buy more hardware.

Cool . On the other hand I purchased a fantastic part for a reasonable price on eBay and it almost fits my bike. Grrrrrr.

In other news, new layer of Bedliner on KilLeR and a brand new hundred dollar battery. Time to go find some mud Sunday.

Why is it that nothing I buy actually fits my bikes?

I've decided that, if I'm going to have to make it fit anyway, I might as well try to make the whole thing myself. At least that way I know WHY it doesn't fit... yet....

So anyway, waiting on paint to dry and the front of the bike is apart anyway... guess it's a good time to wire up these little guys from O'Reilly's as blinkers.



Of course the relay to drive them won't get here until sometime next week. So I really just temporarily broke my turn signals.

Now to find something cheap and bright for the rear signals that I've already broken and JB Welded back together 2 or 3 times.

I was in New Mexico last weekend on the WRR and found plenty of mud. Also rode in the rain enough to rinse off the bike and rider. Good luck on your quest for mud this sunday.
