Thanks Again Grog!

Damn these insulated bib coveralls are the shit!

Theye worked great while I was out trying on the cable chains I bought last night to see if they fit.

They do, juuuuust barely.

Look close and you can see they are hooked together at the very last point of connection.

Eh, whatever, it’s not like I am going to be out doing donuts in the street like a bunch of my other asshole neighbors have been doing all damn day.

They worked good enough to run up to the parts house on so I could get new wiper blades and I damn near broke out in a sweat just standing there in those insulated coveralls.

So the latest forecast is for about 6 inches of snow and a buttload of freezing rain heading up the Willamette Valley straight for us.

I figured I had best try those chains on in case that shit is still around Sunday when I have to go back to work.

Of course the snow thing is a relative nuisance here compared to some other areas.

Cederq sent me some pictures from his place over in Idaho.

I’m thinking the date function on his camera is off because I don’t think they have that much snow over there in June..

He also mentioned something about a Gay Bull Bar mounted on the front of his truck some of y’all were interested in seeing.

I am just going to let that slide because I don’t wanna judge, y’know?

  1. Good on ya Phil! That’s extremely smart to do the practice getting chains on BEFORE the sh*t is drizzling down the back of your neck in the dark. We hope you can wait for the idiots to get their thrills done and thin out before you have to go out.

  2. Yes the date function was off, it is fixed now. I don’t use the camera much and it sits for spells in my drawer by my desk. I was surprised the batteries were still full as it has been 6 months or so since I use it last.

  3. I.’m glad to know you’re comfortable in your sexuality, and not worried what others think Cederq, bully for you! I do think that gaybar would look nice in neon pink though, and make the chubby, oops, sorry – Chevy more visible to your spud grower neighbours.

    • You are right and I don’t care, but potatoes are grown three hundred miles south of me. That gay bar would look nice with your ass planted on it….. PEACE BRA!

  4. Looks like you need another cross link on those ‘chains’ if they’ll fit. That is if you can still get the side rails to close on that last link.
    I never have been a big fan of cable chains. Give me an old set of square Pewag chains any day of the winter’s week. That is if they still make them.
    Fortunately, I’m retired and don’t have to deal with that kind of thing any more.
    I never used to worry about problems I might have in horrible conditions. I knew what I was doing. I just worried about what everyone else on the road was doing. You know, the ones that thought they knew what they were doing. The ones that spent $80,000 on their shiny new four wheel drive rig. The nice folks from the city that didn’t know weather their ass was punched or bored, and liked to drive 70mph on a snowy, slick assed road.

          I hates the sun. Burning orb of pain. Give me very cloudy weather or night time.

      • Nope. Tshirt, cargo shorts, sandals. If it gets cold, maybe a sweat shirt or jacket, but it has to be easily removed because every jerkoff will have turned their damned heat up to what feels like 85 frackin degrees, the jerks.

        Oh, sure, at night when walking the dog I’ll pull on a pair of sweat pants and maybe add an arming cap to keep me ears warm, or if it really gets cold, the knit cap with beaver fir trim (that thing will keep me warm enough that I can go and have gone shirtless in 30 degree weather with snow falling.)

        But, no, don’t wear overalls, never have, never will as far as I know. I don’t want anything that will catch things falling down (thus, t-shirt over cargo shorts…)

  6. Cederq, your chrome bar could give a wheechair-bound Antifa les-be-friend a sore elbow for sure. Why so small, to comply with some city-dwellers’ rules? No, seriously, I expected a full-width setup with a higher recurved top and side reinforcements flaring past your wheel-wells down to your frame rails. Otherwise, how can you survive a highways-speed collision with wandering stock or wildlife? Granted, you have 13 x the population in the same size country, and not so far to walk to the next town, but far larger native herbivores than Australia. BTW, don’t be too concerned about Deathray, he likes that you’re acknowledging him. He’d even wear a facemask, if the ‘old bint’ in his library would chat to him.

  7. You and your icebound pal are a pair of dog-face pony soldiers. If you’ll bother to check, I said that I can’t view videos, and that .gifs are static. Else, why would I approve when Phil and Unfuck posted redheads pics? Though the tiny size of my screen is only rivalled by the amount of functioning grey matter left alive in both your pickled and drug-rotted brain boxes. I’m told that vets sell ‘old dog’ tablets, it’d be worthwhile if the pair of you clowns, one smoking potato leaf, the other sniffing Sasquatch dung, gave up your toxic pursuits and tried something that other flea-bitten hounds have benefitted from.

  8. You’re dodging the question, why such a little bar? It will neither protect bodywork, radiator/oil cooler, suspension and steering components, more importantly: the occupants. A steer will end up through your windscreen. Did you polish the chrome with an Antifa headband?

  9. You are right I didn’t answer your question. The chrome part uprights are 1/2″ plate steel. The tubes are 5/16″ structural steel, the upper brackets attach just under the grill to the radiator bulkhead and through the bolts to a bracket that is attached to the upper truck frame. The lower brackets are 1/2″ steel plate to a fabbed bracket that attaches to the lower frame and front cross member. This “Brush guard” is patterned off of a commercially sold brush guards sold with thinner steel and would bolt to the bumper itself. I liked the look, but wanted a stouter guard. I didn’t want headlight extensions, I wanted to protect the radiator. I don’t give a shit as much for the fender and headlight, those are easy replacements. The push bar is connected under the guard to a front receiver hitch that is bolted to the front cross member. I had an old neighbor that was a short dirt track racer and had a similar push bumper like that to push start Modified short track racers because of their small bumper on the ass end. So I patterned mine after his and I use it to push idiots that have those low slung cars that don’t put snow tires or stud on in the winter and get stuck and spin tires at intersections. With that I can give them a slight nudge and get them started moving. It also has stopped a couple of deers and fucking turkey vultures that rise off of a carcass in the road and always seem to fly at you, the guys that live in the south know what I speak of… Does that answer your question John of the Aussie Island?

  10. No, you are not, but North America does have elk, moose and bison. I’ve seen a Tojo wagon with a full steel-frame wrap-around high bar that hit a full-grown Brahmin bull at 120kmh. The occupants lived, bull didn’t of course, and was only good for pig bait. The owner got two D-8 drivers to pull the thing straight again, no body damage. You pay for increases in fuel cost and greater stresses etc., that must be considered, but you’re alive without injury! And before it’s asked, no, collisions with dicks in little buzz-boxes, and pedestrians, aren’t a worry, they tend not to get in the way.

  11. Do you really have to ask? I’d thought it obvious, after all, Phil’s blog is my access to a place I’d like to live in, despite your political woes. I can read you blokes bitching about the cold, while running my a/c full blast. No Cederq, I don’t have a job despite my need for more money than the disability benefit pays. I’m dead skint, so would work but I just collapse if I ‘walk’ more than a few metres, it’s not just me being a wussie. If I had brains, I’d be right, but I had to leave school just after my 15th birthday when my Mum got crook and spent ages in hospital, and I had to support her by labouring. But when you’re a beast of burden at a young age, it ruins you. I’m sure many readers here have had worse than I, and still keep going, but I just can’t. If Phil doesn’t ban me, or I don’t kark it soon, then just ignore my questions, simple.

  12. Cederq, that sign is absolute bullshit, wishful thinking. Asylum seekers detained as illegal immigrants in our offshore detention centres are offered a free air-fare to the country of their choice, plus $3,000 to leave, no exaggeration. After 6 months, the money offer drops in half, expiring after a year, but they still get free air travel if they’ll leave, no repayment asked. There are few takers, as they are riding the pig’s back if accepted as refugees. Get a wife pumping out kids, rake in more social security income than even middle-class wage-earners, refuse to assimilate into the culture and only remain in your cloisted insular community, you’ve got it made! Work, bullshit, that is for dickhead Aussies!

  13. Johno, I harass you, even with all your faults and in-decipherable speech I like you. If I didn’t I wouldn’t respond to you, I’d ignore you. That being said I posted that pic because I knew that was government bullshit propaganda so I wanted your reaction. I remember your disabled condition as you have described here and on other blogs. I would welcome you into the US with open arms even if you are a cranky old crippled, you would be more accepting and respectful and would assimilate into our culture then the hundreds of thousands of little brown squatmolians that too don’t want to assimilate or are offended by our whiteness, culture and mores, they only want our benefits, fuck everything else. So, I fucks with ya cuz’ I like ya John, just don’t tell Death, he won’t speak to me for awhile…
