Things rarely go as expected when working on a project in the garage. Inevitably, one will discover a part is missing, something needs to be removed and there is no tool to remove this something, or one discovers that while this is removed, it would be a good idea to replace that.

Sometimes I perform jobs in the garage that may not be quite as technical as others. I might do something that requires no tools whatsoever. It’s possible I would perform a task better handled by a six year old. This post will cover just such a task. Continue reading “WDID – Installed a Piece of Foam”
My 1971 Corvette will see some fairly hot weather. We intend to drive it down to Napa, CA next summer. Napa itself is fairly temperate, but to get there from Seattle one must venture through such places as Redding and Corning, where it’s not unusual to see temperatures north of 100° F.

WDID is not intended to be overly technical because technical can be boring and then you’ll get distracted and go look for home recipes for Screaming Yellow Zonkers. I may or may not have had this happen. Continue reading “What Did I Do? September 6 Edition”

After the first season, the musical people at CBS finally figured out how to incorporate “The Professor and Mary Ann” into the diddy without ruining its melodic genius. Continue reading “And the Rest”
