    Glassman's Gloat

    LOML has realized his life dream, and now newly retired, he got himself an old car and one of those things to raise it and lower it. Maybe some of you guys can identify with him--not me The only thing missing now is the beer fridge and the recliner. He's threatening (promising) to spend lots of hours in there.

    It looks like a '57 Chevy from what I can see of the tail end!
    and one of those things to raise it and lower it.
    Might it be called a car raiser and a lowerer!

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    I'm gonna have one some day. A hoist will make things so much easier when doing maintenance. Just waxing the rocker panels, raise it up instead of bending upside down!!! I am envious Cynthia. Looks like a great ride also. More my style, not an original, better, little more horsepower, stopping and rideability (if that is a word).

    Cool, can use the hoist to get the bar stools down when the frig is hosting

    Kinda defeats the purpose of sending him to the dog-house, when the dog-house looks that good! Score one for Glassman

    I *love* those barstools! You guys are going to help me refinish them when I do my new ugly hickory kitchen (are you listening Chuck?)

    And no, it doesn't defeat the purpose. If he's happy, then I'm happy. I tell him to go lose his mind in there.
