Sulphur Springs Mini-adventure

Sulphur Springs

What ever became of Sulphur Springs you may not have asked …….. well  here it is as it sits as of the date on this post. I was enlisted by a Great Grandma I know to be the driver for this little escapade and a good time was had by all.

When we arrived some helpful Parks and Recreation employees let us wander around the place. Strangely enough one of them was rife with facial hair just as I am at the moment. Even more uncanny this bearded brother had on the same footwear as yours truly.

After scouting out the area we headed back home and on the way stopped by Cook’s Kitchen. It was a grey chilly day and the soup we had was just right for the atmospheric conditions!

The Thief and the Scion


The Thief and the Scion.

Recently while fishing a fellow human decided for their own enrichment to visit a little anarchy on property where the Scion XB was parked and waiting for our return. Maybe $10 was stolen from the console and the thief went on their miserable way to spread a little bit of chaos in another part of the county.

I made a police report just to record the incident in the anoles of  civilized society and then started making calls to find out how much restoring order to the universe would cost. Average price for repairs was pretty consistent. $310 to for glass and installation with the first available appointment after the weekend.

Too much money I have no doubt but that what you pay when businesses have payroll taxes, income, business license fees, workers compensation taxes and insurance of all kinds being extracted by the world's largest bureaucracy.

There is always a work around so I set about trying to locate a replacement from a salvage yard. If I do the work myself and get the glass at much reduced price I could save huge money. The second salvage yard I call has the glass I need at a great price! Gagel's auto parts inc. in Riverview has one on the self and uncharacteristically chipper scrap yard employ tells me on the other end of the line.

The Thief and the Scion.

It even came included with the former vehicles vinyl lettering and tint film. Halleluyah
with a little scrapping and peeling the GoBox will be back to it's rightful self. the glass was a mere $38 dollars. This means that if I can install it myself the total cost will be Just over $55 dollars! The following video will reveal the final result of the whole adventure!

Cracked Fuel Line, Bait Stealers and Shattered Glass!


Fishing November 5

Wednesday on the water was great but the fish were not biting, at least the species we were trying to hook. The rod holders worked very well and the lights are placed well. It took ten minutes for us to have out first challenging incident and they kept coming all day long.

The weather was beautiful, man made climate change is a protection racket being perpetrated by liberal progressives, so we enjoyed the environment guilt free.

Most of the time was spent providing free meals little bait stealers.



This is what we found when we returned to the GoBox. A fellow human had shattered the passenger rear window and stolen $10 in cash leaving over $300 in damage which will be well under the $500 insurance deductible. Another day in the life on the planet of the apes.

Baby Talk

Brother and Child.

Developing all the time, the wiggler is getting everything she needs to thrive and more I am sure. Love grows and when she will be able to move to us under her own power resistance will be futile and we will be fully assimilated into her world!

Here she is having an excited chat with her father.

Here she is smiling at her aunt.

Love grows.
