    Week did go by fast. Been busy. Be busier next week as CJ and I fly to Florida to gather mom's belongings and her handicap van from the Florida house and bring it all back to Indiana. Everyone stay safe and as healthy as you can this coming week.

    Car Ramps

    A pair of after market car ramps, set them in front of your truck's rear tires and drive up on them. That will put the trailer at a good angle and lessen the transition from trailer ramps to trailer. Edited to add: ALWAYS use parking brake when loading and unloading from a trailer.

    Vintage Piano

    How many hand planes can we use at one time? How many guns can I shoot at one time? How many tractors can I drive at one time? It is all on our focus and what makes us happy. Just messing with you David.
