Yes, I've been scarce around here.

The reasons are many & varied.

Prob. the biggest & most significant

is that I've been trying to spend as

much time as possible with both the

girls.

Amelia it seems is growing up twice

as fast as Sofia did, sh is seven

months old as of Sunday. The day

before that she got her first tooth.

I'm trying to get as much Q.T. with

all three as possible, while catching

up on a lot of non-C&G related parts

of my life.

I still love you guys, I love this forum.

But I have to admit the news from

GM these s NOT what I need to cheer

me up.

I get up at 3:30am, go to UPS, end

my slave-labor there at around 8:45am

and have to be cleaned up, fed & at

my day job 18 miles away by 10:00am.

By the time I get home from my day job

at about 6:15pm it's more like an

extended dinner break versus a night at

home.

Anyway I will post, in his thread in the

next few days some photos & such of

what it is I have been doing with my

"free" time NOT spent on C&G. :)

And as a first step to give myself a

very deserved, self-administered ass

kicking for my lack of activity on the

B-59, esp.p the Nailhead 364 that is

still sitting half disassembled, I've

decided to write out a schedule, or

"action plan" if you will and post it on

here to keep myself on track.

Peace & G-night for now. :spin:

I miss you bro. Hopefully someday, you can join the teamsters and drive for UPS instead of work in the shipping dept.

Tight Whips 4 LIFE!

Glad to see you're doing well 68. Family time is fun. 8)

I've cut back myself(though you wouldn't know it by my posts), with everything going on, it's not a good time to know everything...

I almost got tired of cars in general (not like me at all), so cutting back a bit helps...

I just come here to hang out with you guys.

I want the new Camaro also. Good to see you, keep up with the girls. My youngest, Christina, is 8 and my middle daughter just turned 13.

It goes by real damned quick.

My oldest will turn 19 July 3.

In the end family is all we have.

Hey Sixty8, glad to hear from ya, sir. I forget what John Lennon said, but it was something like "real life happens while we are making other plans..."

That is great quote.

It's from the song he wrote for Sean Lennon (his Son)

and I play it all the time for Amelia as I did for Sofia

when she was a baby/toddler.

The quote is:

Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.

I love a good chunk of John Lennon's music,

to bad I'm not anywhere near as optimistic

& youthfully pacifistic as he was.

If only the dream were possible in the real

world, I respect John Lennon for dreaming

& hoping fora better future. Too bad that

the world has gone only downhill since he

was assassinated.

Hey 68, Enjoy them while it last, my daughter is out of college and on her own now and I think my wife misses her not being around. 2 years left for my son in College and then a true empty nester here, then you have way more time then you might know what to do with.

Enjoy the family while you have it now and come back to us folks when you get a moment and update us. Good luck with everything, do it as much as you can while your young before you get too tired to still do it.

Good luck with the family, projects, etc.

My nephew is 7 months old tomorrow/today (June 13). It has been AMAZING spending time with him ... and watching him grow. It is sssooo cool.

I, too, have been scarce, but on all of my boards, not just here. Just don't have the time or energy anymore to visit each every night, so I get behind ... and such. Ah, well ... at least I stay in touch, for the most part.... Glad you are well, bud.

Thanks again all.

Just to clarify & reiterate, thoughit prob. goes without saying,

I'm not pulling some "this forum sux and I'm sick of ____ so

screw you guys...." crap.

I've said a few times recently that I'm sick of the negativity

and that's a part of the reason I'm cutting down on internet

time in general, not just C&G.

By the "negative" I mean the state of our beloved GM. It

breaks my heart to see this kind of vulgar betrayal of our

Nations history & industrial might. We (Americans as a whole)

seem to be apathetic to our kids' future & our nation's

economic well being. But I never rest, and every time I run

into someone who has the fire within them I talk openly about

the struggle of the middle class, the vulgarity & disgusting

hubris of our government & the need to exercise our right

to discuss & criticize corruption & incompetence, as well as

the right to bear arms and openly state the threat to punish

those who betray & destroy our country from within.

All those people most of blue states & liberal America likes to

paint as dumb rednecks, gun-fanatic retards & loose cannons,

they are far more plentiful than most think.

I know several people, two of them African Americans & one

a Jewish Eastern European descendant of concentration camp

victims as well as many other hard working Americans be it

blue collar or white collar who are fed up with this bullcrap &

are ready & willing to speak out, create change & worst case

even shed the blood of tyrants if need be.

You know when the corruption, invasion of our personal civil

liberties & whoring out of our country will stop?

When instead of a golden parachute & or a senate seat, the

perpetrators of the crimes against the USA will be hanging

from light poles like Mussolini.

Enough is enough.

And with that in mind my wife & I have discussed a move to

higher ground, another less corrupt & back-assed state in the

union or maybe even Australia or elsewhere....?

Sorry to go off on a tirade, but how many of us are not in

need to vent?

Massachusetts is a corrupt, disgusting $hithole of a disgrace to

the 50 stars on the flag. Every fu&&ing day it's like there are

two sections of the newspsper:

1. Scandals of corruption in political office & theft of taxpayers

hard earned money.

2. A new & innovative way to tax us to death to cover No.1.

a sin tax on candy

endless increased taxation of tolls on bridges & roadways

seemingly weekly increases on cigarette taxes

an increase in the sales tax

taxation of TELEPHONE POLE usage

increased regulation in every public & private sector

FREE cell phones & cars for wellfare recipients! (!?!?) serious as a heart attack!

and much much more...
