                                                               C. B. Savage by Ron Hart
                                            And several by Dave Dudley one of if not the best singer of truck songs.

    Heres a suggestion for you, go to a Home Depot and or a Lowes or even a Menards store or really any store that sells Plexi- glass. Go to the Plexi-Glass section and look at the glues there. There probley will be a couple three different glues there. Read the labels on all and decide which one would best suit your needs, or the easiest on for you to use.
    When I built my trailer, I used the tube glue that they offer, worked just great, dries crystal clear and it has all the stickum that you need. In fact I have built several different things using that pertickler glue. If you use it for anything thats not really clear, be sure to test it on a piece of scrap first.

    Hope this helps

    That new board probley didn't work and Harry just doesn't want to tell us that his garage door opener has gone to the garage door opener beyond.

    Hey Harry take a break and go on down to the Sox game tonight, and than tomorrow you can tell ua that your going to get a new opener.

    We'll all understard, I think.

    That's seems appropriate the Cubs and dog poop in the same sentence. At least you can clean up the dog poop in the spring. But nobody has been able to do anything for the Cubs in years.

    As Harry would probley say GO WHITE SOX but they didn't look all that good last year either.

  11. Cornpatch added a post in a topic I had this HORRIBLE NIGHTMARE . . .   

    Looks like Danno's been sent to his room one time to many. To much time to sleep and have these weird nightmares.

    Maybe he needs more time in the sandbox, with the sane people on this forum.

  12. Cornpatch added a post in a topic Stylin' Cues--Where Do You Find Yours?   

    I keep a camera in the wife's car, that way when we're out, if I see something that I like, I take several pictures of it. When I get home I put the pictures in the computer, print them out and put them in a ring binder and when I am ready to start a new project, I go thru the pictures and see if there is anything that could or will be used on the project.

    Both of my sons also use these pictures before they start new projects. I just wish that they would return the binders, so I wouldn't have to track them down when I am ready to use them.
