Saturday got the center caps on the HD then went around and did weed and grass control, also did a little clean up in the garage. Sunday Mowed the yard but left most of the leaves in the back as there are still half of them still in the tree and don't feel like cleaning them up twice. Plus my Blower/Mulcher has died. Also had to unclog the bathroom drain. (I Hate Doing That) :puke  Have the Colorado scheduled to go into the dealer Tuesday morning.

Saturday in the mail I get a Jury Summons for Maricopa Grand Jury for Feb 11.  :rolleyes   This should be fun, NOT!!!

No Idea what I will do today or after I get home Tuesday dropping off the colorado.

Good luck. Hopefully all goes well.

Wednesday night the refrigerator took a dump. The controller for the air coming from the freezer stopped working. Got the part this afternoon. Got it installed and all is happy now. It was so jacked up the fridge would not shut off. So I would manually turn it off and back on. Still froze stuff in the fridge side.  :laugh

SO far so good.  Did have to make an adjustment to cool the refridge a little more. But all in all doing good.

Weekend is looking good for some racing  :good .  If the car will run the number, He may go run Super Comp at an 8.90 index and see if he can potty some long cars off.   :laugh   :D  :good   Ran a 9.12 down in Tucson so we are thinking a good chance to run sub 8.90's here at Wildhorse with just one more minor adjustment to the rear shocks.  :good

Yee Haw what a fun weekend. Saturday. Decided to go and see how the long cars like a door car in their Super Comp class at an 8:90 index. He goes to the guy running the SUpper Comp program and says "you guys let an old fart in a little door car run your program".  The guy says " we encourage it" Entry was paid.  Out of the trailer ran a 8:97 first round of qualifying. Second round roll up to the lanes and no one would run the door car.  :laugh   Still an 8:97. First round of Eliminations get paired up, Buddy goes to the driver, as he normally does, and wish's him good luck and a safe run.  The dude just grunts at him  :laugh  Now granted it ran another 8:97 with an .044 light.  The dragster treed a .022. Dragster nipped him at the light with a .05 margin of victory.  Now that we had a good laugh for the day  :good we had time to just kick it and enjoy the rest of the day. Sunday ran an 1/8 mile gambler style run. Car was on kill!!!.  We already had an idea the car was going to be dialed a 5:67.  After two 5:67 passes for qualifying he put a 5:66 on the car. Won First round, Won second round lifting and ran a 5:67, Redialed to a 5:65 just in case and went to the winner circle running a 5:66. He can't be any happier with the car. Big joke all weekend was we wish we could make it more consistent.  :rotflmao    Every pass this weekend it was on 1:22 60 ft times, nothing slower.  Best it has ever done.   Looking forward to the Hangovers at the end of February in tucson :good
