DISCUSSION

A.) Who would be interested in buying a Lucky 7 Cruise T-Shirt? Ideally, this wont be for profit of any kind, break even pricing only. About $15, but I will try to get the best price.

B.) I NEED A TAILGUNNER!!!!! Who Wants/Can to Help?

Thoughts, Ideas, ...Complaints?

Still not too sure about making this cruise. Just have a TON of crap to do before the snow flies and while I CAN just tkae a day off,..... It's really not going to help me get back on track. Besides the lot of firewood work I've got ahead of me I've still GOT to finish the house and I need to get wrenching on my Z before it gets cold outside. adding to my "HIGH" priority list is this mess:

Image


Last week I noticed the smell of fuel in my driveway. Didn't think much of it till I drove my trailblazer to Home Depot to buy some siding. Once I got out of the truck I noticed the smell again and saw a puddle under the truck. I got the truck back to the house,.... it used almost 1/2 tank to get 15 miles home. SO; I'm driving John-J's S10 as my primary vehicle right now. the leak isn't really a leak,.. it's spewing out BAD from somewhere above the tank when it's running. NOT looking forward to dropping that tank to find the problem !

I think that ass-hat Murphy is cloning himself because I swear he's still on my back too !!!

Ah hell John, sorry to see that the SOB is paying you a visit too.

Thanks Jerry!

Well, it seems there isnt enough interest in Shirts, although I know we discussed it at the potluck. The shartshow of vendors didnt help. That said, I intend to have o few made for myself. If folks like them, I will have more made.

SATURDAY IS A GO!
Mostly cloudy in the AM giving way to partly cloudy skies and mid-70's by early afternoon.

LETS TOCK N ROLL BABY!



No shirts made right now, because there were only a few requests. If I had a good number to work with, I would've put up the money to make a batch up front, but with a baby coming very soon, the surprise for the cruise, and lots of other expenses on my plate, its money I cant afford to eat. The guy would need 2 weeks or so to get them made for me. He also suggested a different idea for the shirt. What I will do is take preliminary orders at the cruise for Lucky 7 shirts and go from there.
