Since I've become a "vampire" (midnight - eight ayem), I've noticed how few posts are made from midnight to eight in the morning...and guess what...

It's REALLY boring...:sighwgray

So if some of you "nightcrawlers", & some of my VX siblings from "across the pond" & "down under", have something on your mind, let's hear it!

I'm gonna get set up at work so I can do more than lurk, then I'll start the "Ldub late-night universal thread", covering any & all topics.

Threadjacking WILL be encouraged!...:yes:

So, what say YOU?...:confused:

Hmmm.....Thread-jacking encouraged huh?....

I found a crawdad in my backyard. I live in West Chester, OH and the crawdad hole was not by any creek or pond.

Anyone else think that's weird?

~Oh, and here are some dancing bananas~

Only person I ever heard say that was Jack LaLaine...:_confused
He claimed @ 70+ yrs. of age, to only need 4 hrs. a night.

I may be old, but I STILL like a good solid 8!...:sleepgray

I think that crawdad (or mudbug, or crayfish, or...) fell from the sky as rain, due to something Al Gore did.

Midnight to eight ayem...five nights a week.

Not always the same five nights, but usually TH-FR-SA-SU-MO.

It's kinda confusing, when I say TH, I go in on WE night before midnight, but when my shift starts, it's TH.

This week my schedule jogged to accomidate having FR off & leaving for Moab on SA morning.

Also, I've been a little busy the last couple of nights, ummmm...entertaining...:naughty:

Then bust out the sticker collection from previous Moab treks, & years of accumulation...:cool:

Time to sit down...

And CUSTOMIZE my bad stoop sittin' vehicle. (new camp chair)

I'm curious about this "X74"....so I just wrote the seller and asked a bunch of questions. Also asked what's meant by "research 1999 Isuzu". Also wonder why it doesn't meet ebay criteria for their buyer protection plan. I asked for a FREE CarFax instead of making me pay for it...We'll see what I get.

Hi Susan,
If you click on the AutoCheck icon below that's the same as CarFax. We put this Vehicross through our service inspection and all we did was change the oil and replace a window regulator. The brakes were at 70% and everything else checked out. The X74 is Isuzu's designation I think they were all pretty much the same. I almost forgot to mention we have a2nd set of wheels and tires for it. Please email, or call me at your convenience if there's anything else I can do for you.

If you click on the AutoCheck icon below that's the same as CarFax. We put this Vehicross through our service inspection and all we did was change the oil and replace a window regulator. The brakes were at 70% and everything else checked out. The X74 is Isuzu's designation I think they were all pretty much the same. I almost forgot to mention we have a2nd set of wheels and tires for it. Please email, or call me at your convenience if there's anything else I can do for you.

Interesting, though all I get when I click on the link is:

We are sorry, but the vehicle history report cannot be displayed at this time. Please ask the dealer for a copy of an AutoCheck report for this vehicle.

:_confused

But since it's you Kat, I'll still go with...:thumbup:...:thumbup:

:wtfy: Wow. That thing doesn't even look like it has a lift?!?! I mean, "to each his own" and "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and etc, but damn, imo that poor VX is jacked looking.

Oh I dunno, it's all a matter of perspective...:laughgray

Y'all had me worried for nuthin. Those rims ain't got no offset. Maybe he used some spacers. I like having the deep dishes.

My buddy almost has me convinced to enter the Proton in a car show next weekend to help support Children's Miracle Network. I've never been much on car shows but it's for a good cause. I'll letcha know what happens.

Children's Miracle Network Car Show Most Offset on one Vehicle ;)

Ldub's VX would win for "most likely to scare Children" ;)

I figured it out...click on the 2nd link for the car, then look for the "CarCheck" logo and click that, it shows the full report. Looks like it's turned over ownership at least 4 times, maybe more, stops at 67,000 miles.

0530ish...

The sun is starting to crack over the horizon, bringing with it the realization that this is my last day of work until the twentieth of this month...:dance:

Wonder if I'll even know how to act when I get back...:_confused

H311, I barely know how to act NOW!

I already told the first person through the door, that I wish I knew where her desk was...so I could put some worms on it...:eek:

Fortunately for me, she had a pretty firm grasp on the whole "early bird getting the worm" thing...:smilewink
Also, she came equipped with a good sense of humor.

I told the next guy to take a good look at the dubster, cause it would be his last chance to see me until the twentieth...then told where I was going & he wished me well..:thumbup:

He's probably at his desk right now, calling the local mental health authorities...:laughgray

Well, better go get some "work" done...as if.:rolleyesg

Just caught you burning the early morning oil.

Have a good trip Ldub.

If I ever find an excuse to come to USA I will have to make sure it is in May.

From way down under.

Thanks PK,

I hope to see you out Moab way some fine day, or maybe I'll be fortunate enough to have a dive vaca on that big reef y'all have down there...:thumbup:

In any event, you'll be seeing pics from the cinnamon soon...:dance:

Last week I spent several hours after work 'restoring' a metal workbench I got from work (they were throwing it out). It had a lot of tape and stickers and rust and crap all over it. So I took it apart and cleaned it off real good. Then I resprayed it with some Rustoleum Hammered Finish paint (I like that stuff). I probably painted for like 4 hours total. Now, the tip of my index finger on my right hand (the one used to depress the sprayer) has been numb since Saturday. :rotate:

If you use your left hand, does that mean you're cheating on yourself?

No, I think that's what they call The Stranger or something like that. :D
