Anyone have great plans today? For me itís a quiet barbecue at home. I love fireworks but nothing doing in Boston tonite.
Kids are staying away because they donít want to put us at risk.

Stay home, some yard work, watch TV, and monitor a pair that spawned late last night. After 8 hours I can see only one white egg while the rest are salmon color. The parents are occasionally tending to the eggs but on the other had they have not eaten them either. This is a first spawn for this pair.

Going for a ride probably South for the first time this year ..
Top down and enjoying the sun in my favorite fish !
Our fireworks have all been cancelled .
I know a few people that will have professional quality works but IMO it is worth it to stay away this year for several reasons ..
I have heard they say " Hard times don't last . Strong people do " .:thumbsup:

I think that we're all celibrating in a different way this year because things going on are very different from usual. But I feel free and independent and I know how very lucky I am to have grown up in the States.

I bet it impressed the guys at the tire place. What did they say? Did you steam wash or get it pristine some other way?

That is how it was ! They thought the car was new [called it new] several times .
I had to remind them it was 13 years old .
The previous owner said he only got caught in the rain a couple times by accident the 7 years he owned it and I will not drive her with the chance of rain ! I can cruise in the crossfire on questionable days ..:p
I know the bottom of the car is lame so here is the engine !

I know even that is not what counts to most but no 'good pics' till my custom license plate comes for it .
Lets play a game with a prize !
A pair of rams with free express shipping for whoever can guess my new custom plate before I post it ..
NYS DMV is slow but I have the paper registration already so the clock is ticking . I'll even help you guess my flavor by showing you some of my other custom plates..

RFBANDIT. Did you get the new excelsior plates?

coralbandit

I did get the excelsior plates according to the picture custom plates provides on line .
They could still be 4 weeks out ? Neither you Tom or you Harry got it but I like the ideas !
I spend too much time searching and getting comfortable with things like this ..
God Bless America Harry !

You're lucky you are allowed 8 letters. Here in Mississippi we are only allowed 7.

I guess Xecentric.

Only allowed 8 if you use I for 1 of them .

Thanks Shan ! I didn't even think of ls2 but I am sure other vette heads have that .. My plate is sort of vette orientated ?
I was surprised to see " GETONIT " was available ..I kind of figured that was like asking for it though .
The last NYS Trooper I 'ran into' was like an angry John Goodman and I can pass on meeting him or his brother again !
