    No disfunction here.
    When I was a young man, my father told me "Don't ever let the little head do the thinking for the big head. It (the little head) will get you in trouble every time, one way or another." He was right then, and it still applies today. Gene

    You guys seem to be able to cop to every malady of old age except the one that matters least. :D

    When I lose things, it never fails that I find them the last place I looked. Oh to have the foresight to look the last place first. And why did the back of my hands get so thin skinned? I change a set of brake pads and it looks like I lost a bar fight.

    That will work every time if you can remember when you find it to quit looking.

    At 45, I'm well into the grip of MS. One doesn't have to stop being productive in order to be eliminated. My productivity is being eliminated at the same time. I've adapted to the physical problems so far and just work a bit slower, but the most maddening part is the brain fog that comes and goes. I've forgotten what I'm saying in the middle of a sentence at times. It's not necessarily easy to live with, but at the same time it's fascinating to see what the body's defense mechanism can do when it becomes aggressive toward things it is supposed to protect.

    I’ve been laughing for the past 15 minutes. However I stopped laughing because I realized most of these apply to me, and I’m only 30 lol. I’ve got a long road in front of me...

    Devilleish, I know you're not looking for sympathy, but I'm sorry for you man, glad to see you not giving in to a disease that you know will get the best of you. You can teach all us old whiny guys a lesson.
    If I were closer, I'd run right over to help, you have my admiration, go man go.....LeRoy.

    It's pretty easy to laugh when someone else slips on the banana peal. :)

    Ok, you asked for it! 53192417_610700542711189_5238160565381103616_n.jpg
     
  14. The last fully productive full day I had on my Bel Air involved pulling the motor and tranny out and swapping the 327 for a 350. Clutch, pressure plate, etc, all went smooth. Dimpled the firewall with the BFH to clear the hei, and slid everything back in place. As me and buddy were buttoning things up, I had THAT feeling that this was going way too smoothly and trouble free...I took a step back to look things over, glanced at the flex plate sitting on the bench, and f@#k...rook everything back apart, went to my 70 year old mechanic buddy to pick up a pilot bushing that was on the shelf so long the price tag was $1.49, and away we went.....

    Love it! I've outlived my pecker, 2 aortic valves, one eye, and a bunch of little stuff. I'll be down to racing form soon. :eek:
    Having one eye doesn't mean I'm half blind. My world is smaller but it's full of surprises. It only takes half as much time to look at an ugly girl. It takes twice as long to look at a pretty girl. I can't see all of a fat girl at once. It only takes half as much beer to get blind drunk. I don't squint when I shoot. If I need a cornea transplant I can be my own donor. There are a few problems with close up depth perception especially in the shop. I don't like those spark plug grounding kill things on lawn mowers and stuff. I almost always miss the tab and find the plug. Drilling holes in the right spot takes a bit more setup time. I'm way more careful about safety glasses. :)
