      Make sure you put it far enough away from the steering wheel to avoid incidental contact with your hand while driving.
      The fella I raced buggies with used a toggle switch for the starter. It worked just fine until one day we were out pre-running the course. Bouncing around in the desert his big hand flipped the switch to on, unknowingly, while that poor little 1200cc VW was propelling us across the dirt. The outcome was not good :BangHead: :lol:

            A senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of the dealership. Taking off down the road, he floored it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little gray hair he had left. Amazing, he thought as he flew down I-94, pushing the pedal even more.
            Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a state trooper behind him, lights flashing and siren blaring. He floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then 120. Suddenly he thought, What am I doing? I'm too old for this, and pulled over to await the trooper's arrival.

            Pulling in behind him, the trooper walked up to the Corvette, looked at his watch, and said, "Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a reason for speeding that I've never heard before, I'll let you go."

            The old gentleman paused. Then he said, "Years ago, my wife ran off with a state trooper. I thought you were bringing her back."

            "Have a good day, sir," replied the trooper.

              No clock punching today. Little more coffee and start the bathroom floor.
              Good Morning

                          Morning gang. Been lurking a bit. Starting out with some repairs on old dining room chairs. Joints are tired... going to see if I can tighten things up. Then a quick oil change, swap out the exterior door keypads and hang a new ceiling fan.
                          Nice relaxing Saturday

                                    A woman wakes up in the middle of the night to find her husband is not in bed. She goes down stairs and finds him in the kitchen sipping coffee. She asks him, "What's wrong?"

                                    He replies, "Exactly twenty years ago we conceived our first child."

                                    His wife starts to cry, "I can't believe you remember that."

                                    He continues, "Yeah. You were 15 and I was 18, your dad caught us and put his shotgun against my back. He told me, 'If you don't marry her, you will rot in jail for twenty years."

                                    A tear goes down his face, "I would have gotten out today."

                                      Total screw up. Sensor fit. But its too long, found out when i broke it. Nowhere in my piles of junk is there any sort of coolant temp switch. Guess fan is in continous mode..spilled a quart or so of coolant for nothing.

                                      Old carpet is up. I couldn't remember what I did last time.... Turns out I had already pulled the linoleum and underlay. Just plywood floor under there. Getting that cleaned up. Doing a little rework on a rot area near the tub. I put bondo in it to level last time and most is still good except where the plywood meets there was a little movement. Adding a sister 2x under it so it won't move anymore. Still need to set a few floor nails and pull the toilet out. Time to go shave down the bondo and check level to see if I need to add any. Might zip over the whole thing with 80 on the sander to knock down any high spots. Plus that will shine up any tall nails so I don't miss them. Other than that this stuff has backing and should be pretty forgiving.
