Ready for the neighborhood dogs to use as a urinal.
No dogs around here but I did have an old cat that loved to pee on everything around. Very corrosives stuff, it will rust out almost everything.

Peeing was once used as a way of finishing gun barrels.
It resulted an attractive reddish brown finish after being polished with a mild abrasive (whatever the 17th and 18th century version of steel wool was) and oiled.

Old Mr Kitty could have made a whole army of infantry happy guys! He ruined so much around here, he just loved to pee on stuff. We never let him in the house for that reason.

Been lookin' at hot sauces on Amazon....they have a pretty good selection nowadays. We were at Taco Bell last night and they had the little packets of their hottest labeled "Diablo". You know, they have no comprehension of "hot". Still, it did have a decent flavor.
What I need is some genuine Chinese hot mustard. I've been missing it lately.

Better putty up if you find some.

Zero to 60 in 2.5 seconds, but what fun is that without the roar of an engine?

Agree...maybe you could use some clothespins/cards on the wheels and get some Vroooom!

Well...it does happen. You can't do much when you're dead...sometimes not much more when you're old. My Mom will be 90 on Saturday.....she can do more than I can, and does.

The kind that burns a hole in the top of your head and spins your eyeballs out of control. You are certain you are about to die, and hope it is fast. That's the "good stuff".

After 6 weeks from the time I got the estimate, I finally got the Toy Car back yesterday. Looks great!

The repairs were about $4500. and since it is technically Mrs Rupert's car I used her debit card to pay my deductible + reconditioning of two extra wheels.....$275. But, I did drive her over to Stephenville in it and bought her dinner at Taco Bell...$2.49 and let her use my debit card to buy some new shoes....$9.99. I'm a pretty nice guy!

You can buy a new one for near $50K ...we almost did. Or you can shop around and get a mint used one like we did 3 years ago for $13.2K in perfect condition with under 50K miles. Otis calls it Big Brain Thinking....me too!
You big spender you!

And, as an added plus, it can take your head off when you're letting it do the driving!

I became a proud grandfather, yesterday ... my wife has gone nuts with her knitting leading up to this - a chance to do the old food photography strategy and get out the softbox and reflector:

Congratulations! You've got something to look forward to - and will get some opportunities to get worn out over the coming years

Thanks, Savoche ... we get to hand her back to the sleepless parents when we've had enough!
