Sourdough was a great success, but I'm a failure at that artisan bread, couldn't get big cracks in the crust and no big Swiss Cheese holes for the melted butter and the jelly to drip through.  Used bacon drippings also, but that's Yuppie approved now because you can buy it in stores.  I made my own. ;D

Well, 37 here right now, supposed to hit 45 tomorrow. Will help melt off the rest of the snow we got yesterday and this morning. Work has slowed down, so now I am only going to work 2-3 days a week.

Morning all.

31 and some light slush falling from the sky.

Spent yesterday teaching a coworker to drive a manual, and also do my job. He’s a good guy, a little too worried about traffic laws while learning to shift on a private dirt road.

On todays list, I get to drive to Idaho to pick up a portapotty, then go feed horses.

I remember how I learned to drive a manual shift.  It consisted of being told how to do it, then being turned loose in an A&P grocery store parking lot.
Oh I forgot to mention the fully articulated snow plow on the front, the foot of snow in the lot I was supposed to push to the corners, the light poles to avoid and this had to be done before the store opened!  Somehow the poles, the truck (clutch, transmission, body and all) and me all survived and I came out a “clutcher”.  Oh, and this was done at around 3:00 AM, while snowing, and I was only 18.  Needless to say traffic laws were not even on my mind ;D.

I'll bet your pasture didn't have 3 ft diameter bunkers planted around it.  Try an evade all those critters in your attempt to raise,lower and tilt the plow at the same time.  Reminds me of the Kids "one legged man in a butt kicking contest".  I did say I survived, as well as the truck and a large portion of the light bases.

My Uncle D taught me to drive stick on an ancient Ford half ton with 3 on the tree.
Supposed to hit 35 tonight, then mid 50s tomorrow. Gonna check at the Consignment shop tomorrow for a dehydrator or toaster oven, needed for my brass drying. It's the half-price weekend, so wish me luck. Also, brought home 2 guns today. A Uberti Schofield back from Cimmaron , got a new cylinder as the first was miscut and split brass on one hole. The other is a mud puppy S&W Victory that has been given some strange attention lavished on it over the years. Pics in the Zoot forum here.

I learned to drive a stick from the beginning, in my Dad's '65 Ford Falcon. Seven miles of gravel road out to my Grandparents' farm. That thing had a really touchy clutch, pedal only moved about 1/2 inch from fully disengaged to fully engaged. Was easy to kill that little 200 cubic inch six it had. Good training vehicle!

Completed a little "smithing" for the LGS yesterday on a Remington 7400.
The gun had been stored, 14 years in a closet.
It needed a detail cleaning, and the stock finish at the butt plate was munged up from oil draining down.
Finish that and the guy wanted to buy and have a scope mounted. I did so and bore sighted it.

I get little projects like that from time to time, adds "alms" to my Gun a holic fund.

45 this morning, Haircut for a photo, because I have to renew my CCW permit, and they require a current mug shot.
when planets align...do the deal !

We learned to drive a stick before we were allowed to touch a slush box.   ::)   By 16 if you couldn't drive a stick shift you were required to squat when you peed.  LOL that will get you in trouble for saying it today.  ::)

I took my Drivers test in 1956 in my Dad's van. He did not own a car at that time. It had a 4-speed floor shift but you only used the top three gears. No directionals so you had to hand signal.
You need to learn to like all the little everday things like a sip of good whiskey, a soft bed, a glass of buttermilk,  and a feisty old gentleman like myself

Well, I got to work and my sub was already there, seems the supervisor had thought I wanted to take today off in exchange for working last Saturday. So I thought-that's a great idea! So here I am at home, on a sunny, mid 40's Friday.

When I was in the Army, as a motor pool mechanic, they had me teach some of the drivers how to drive a stick. There was a big gravel parking lot out behind motor pool row, took them out there in an M-151 Jeep. Some of them had grown up in the city, and never even learned to drive before Uncle Sam wanted them to. One girl was excited to get to learn to drive a "boy" car. She said automatics were "girl" cars and sticks were "boy cars".

First car was a Karmann Ghia, floor shift. Second car was a Studebaker Lark, 4 on the column.

I taught my wife to drive on a floor shift Datsun pick-up. She'd only driven automatics up until then.

I learned to drive a stick in my dad's 1970 Dodge 1 ton pickup with a crew cab and duel rear wheels.

 Evening all.

Old Man Winter showed back up and decided to grace us with 6” of new white stuff. Interstate is a mess, but that’s normal. ::)

I learned stick in a 1994 Ford Ranger at 14 or 15, then went to a 2005 Subaru Outback. These days I’m pretty well relegated to work trucks, mostly 6, 10 and 18 speeds. I also have a bit of time in a twin stick Kenworth 8)
