It's actually illegal to look at anything in NJ with one eye closed. :D

I'm not sure we can have silhouette targets here either. That one is from the police department and the police don't have to obey the law. :lol:


:clap: Good one JP. Ain't it the truth. I lit up the cookstove this morning to take the chill off the house after 3 days of rain and wind. After a couple armloads of scraps for the shop and a few sticks of maple through it, the downstairs was up to 80 and I let it go back out about 3pm. Too hot for me.

I want a cigarette!

It was two years and one hour ago that I quit smoking. Let's see...$7 a pack... a pack a day.... $5,110 dollars. I think I'll go buy a new four wheeler!

Freddy, it's been a good run with no ciggy hangin' out of your mouth, so why change that now? Take a ride over to the hospital in Bangor and visit a few folks with O2 tanks and plumbing that are losing their ability to breath....slowly and painfully.

YOU control your destiny, so maintain control! Also, we'd miss you on the forum... Go get a 4 wheeler, you earned it just in savings on ciggys! :shock: :idea: :!: :roll: :o

I don't miss it a bit although it took a good long while to get to that place. I was never a heavy smoker anyways but loved that toasted baccy smell in a bar having a beer when someone lit one up. My cure for that was stop going to bars. ;) I amaze myself at the healthy lifestyle I'm now living. Now if i could just drop 50 lbs! :lol: Cookin and eatin have become by new "jones". :P

Yeah my problem is I know whare to get tobacco at $12 a pound. :shock:

Don't make the mistake I did. Went to the family camping reunion 2 years ago. Couldn't fit in with their drinking 30 Keystones every night so I had a few Marlboro Lights. They all smoke.
Then I watch my country being run into the ground by evil politicians, and bum a cigarette or two from a laborer friend I see on jobsites once in a while. Great guy, he says keep the pack and all of a sudden I have 5 cigarettes.
Then I fall for the slick advertising of organic American Spirits and try a pack.
Now I'm like a heroin addict again. :wtf:

Don't even entertain the thought Freddy. Not even the thought. In the first three months after you quit, you got 30% of your lung function back. Only way for me is cold turkey, I hope I get sick of it enough to try quitting again.

I think Freddy's supply is adequate...I'm still voting for the 4 wheeler. A new Trials Bike would be nice....but as we get older, the reactions aren't as quick...so 4 wheeler it is. :idea:

Thanks for all the thoughts. Smoking ....or not smoking... IS a bitch. Once in a while I still want one, but, no, not ever again. I don't think I will ever be a non-smoker, I am just a smoker that chooses to not smoke. The wife still smokes. That was tough for a while, but now I'm good at ignoring it. She doesn't smoke in the house and she understands not to hug me for 20 minutes after a smoke....it stinks!

Sure would! But, my back won't let me. Even at that..... I'd like to buy a new OSSA, just to park it in the living room & look at it. Tis a beauty! It's built backwards...and upside down. The gas tank is where the radiator was, the carburetor is in the front, the exhaust in the back (kind of makes sense). The radiator and fan are where the gas tank usually is, and the cylinder points backwards! The exhaust pipe is SO custom! I love it when someone does things differently.

It does make sense of in the same sort of way that airplane designs went after seeing the Wright Bro's flyer. It looked like a plane flying backwards. ;)

I opened up the coal pile this weekend and loaded the coal bin with about 7.5 tons of black diamonds. Closed up the pile for safekeeping until next year. (hopefully I won't have to dip into it).

I declare myself ready for cold.

Yeah, my stockpile looks about the same, except I can't figure out how to keep the tarps from dry-rotting. The sun is really drying them up, then the wind shreads them. . 1 year is all I get out of those cheap Poly tarps from "big-box". I splurged a little this year and bought an extra-thick tarp with UV protection. I'll install it this month when its time to load up my bin from the stockpile.

Its been raining for 3 days straight, now. At least its warm, supposed to be in the 80's until Friday.

UV destroys the tarps in 1 year. I get 8 x 10 tarps on sale for $2 each and consider them disposable.

The tarp under the coal was a $45 economy tarp. where exposed, it fell apart. Under the coal held up but I keep nicking it with my tractor bucket. Next load of coal will require a new tarp. Just the price of doing bulk.

The stuff on top is single ply rubber roofing that was salvaged from a commercial roof replacement job. Heavy and durable.
