    I did a "proper" brake adjustment on my drum brakes....Hung a strand of battery operated Christmas Lights from the roll bar for the kiddies and ordered a Lower Radiator hose engine heater for those hard to warm up mornings.....

    X2. Same for tonight, tomorrow, Thurs, and Fri. HOWEVER, on Sat, I'm going to hook up to my M105A2 and take a load of garbage to the dump. At least it'll get driven that way. :eek:

    I can't wait to finish my shop up so I can go snow-wheeling!!!! :cheers:

    Put gas in it yesterday, and drove it to work again today.

    Edit: Almost forgot: I also rolled up the driver-side window for the first time--in 8 years.
