It's okay, it was getting pretty old. I ended up buying the same thing I use at work... Once a year they do a fit check with it on me.... I might ask if they will do my personal one I just bought at the same time since I think it's about that time again.

Every surreal experience I've had in Manhattan has been within 8 blocks of the square.

No doubt. And it was a freak show 30 years ago when I was in high school, and I had one particular friend who'd always want to go down there to try to have surreal experiences. Oh and be offered drugs.

Of course he was the same guy who we.... well we learned our lesson and only let him DM a D&D campaign *once*. He had this weird hard on for TAXATION. Enough that we came close to using the cluebat to explain what entertainment means.

Have you ever had a surreal experience in Manhattan, Kansas, though?

Never had a Kansas experience at all, though I'm willing to try. :lol:

Son just had his 6th birthday. I gave him a Barnett Bandit crossbow that shoots suction cup darts; his uncle gave him a little snow shovel, which I think was more of a hit, although he was disappointed he didn't get any more toy Alaska Airlines jets to expand and modernize his fleet with. He shot the crossbow once, hit the target, and went back to playing with his airplanes. His 3 year old sister, on the other hand, was all about the crossbow. I think I've got a shooter girl. 8-)

Overland Park, KS always makes me happy. It's a suburb of KC. It's just a neat little place.

It's a bad time when you need vise grips to change a headlight. Very rusty screw wouldn't respond to anything else. I couldn't get hold of it from the front, so I got them on the back of the screw. Fortunately, the grips didn't bugger the threads. The ATF I'd put on to try to fake a penetrating oil made it come out quite easily once the grips got it moving, though.

Working through a contact at a supplier for a new part and the guy keeps calling me with questions. I do not mind making adjustments, but WTF. Keep telling him to mark up the drawing with what they want and I will change it, he keeps wanting to call me about every one individually. How does someone work like that, he must have nothing but time.
