I had been putting off going to the doctor mainly because it is rarely good news when I do. My left knee has been really sore and going up and down stairs was getting to be very painful.I went yesterday and found out that the real problem with my knee is old age and that guy arthur ritis. A cortisone shot and some high doses of ibuprofen and it's like I am 15 instead of 51! I also got some advice on how to lift properly with my hands and arms to alleviate the pain in my elbows and reduce the inflammation in the tendons.Maybe now I will have more energy to sit at the workbench and get some WIPs done!
I have my eye on a couple of kits but after spending last Saturday going through some of my stash and finding stuff I had forgotten about, that could be changing. I really need to sell off some more stuff before I buy more kits, although I could be up for some trades. There are a couple of shows coming up in the next month or so, really should see about getting a table and selling some kits, but then I am tempted to buy stuff from other vendors!
And they are getting ready to repave a large portion of them after 20 years and of course, they are using federal road funds to do so because the tolls collected only cover "maintenance and operating costs", not actual construction. I remember when the board of directors for the tollway got caught ordering $2,500 chairs for their new boardroom and it was uncovered that they hardly ever used the boardroom! They also had a couple of expensive helicopters to use for observation purposes and I think a couple of directors got caught using them for "taxi" service so the wouldn't have to get stuck in traffic on the tollways! Only in Illinois, where more ex-governors are also ex-prisoners!
Well, the thing I learned about this whole Cecil the Lion situation is that I should have gone to dental school! If the good Dr. was able to pay $50,000 for a license and probably another $5-10,000 in expenses to go to Africa to hunt, then obviously he is doing pretty good filling cavities! While the killing of a Lion is newsworthy, I do find it interesting what some networks are doing as far as coverage on all events of the past couple of days.
In the past when I printed coupons, if I walked the aisle and didn't find something I needed/wanted, I would hand the coupon to another shopper. Today I mention to others to use their smartphone for the 40% off coupon.
Is there a model club or swap meet coming up? I once sold a bunch of old enamel sprays at a swap meet because of the same reason as you. A model club might have members who would purchase them cheaply.
That one is usually referred to as a L-88 style hood. I don't recall the second generation Camaro's having a cowl induction hood like the first generation models. I have seen some in resin, will have to dig through my resources to see if I can find who was casting them.
