    My truck can no longer be called a beater. :D

    After swapping bumpers this past weekend and since I now run mastersuck synth cable, I'm going to a synth hawse fairlead. Went to Kmart today (to visit Wench's momma :D) and to buy a cutting board. Choices were clear for $4.00 or gray for $4.79.

    Hmmmm.

    'Yup, went form over function and $ and plunked down the mighty extra $0.79 to look purty.

    Only problem was though my squaw saw it and snagged it saying I had to take a used one :tear:. Well, now maybe it's only 1/2 beater. :D

    perfect....my wife got new pots and pans just so I could steal the old ones for greasy-parts use in the garage....same thing happens yearly with her rubber spatula collection....

    ...I haven't yet admitted that her stuff usually disappears PRIOR to me buying her new stuff....hehehe

    OK, that's like 2 years worth of kitchen talk for me :D.

    (almost a shameless Wench pad :D)

    I can't believe that some places wanted like $35 for a frickin plastic hawse. Shees. :slap:
