Big bang theory....by Billy Bob & Company

Dad gum it, I don't know where to start this morn'n. Well, I could tell ya I feel much better this morn' than what I did yesterday. I actually walked a straight line to the coffee pot. "Hmmmmm...not a bad cup of coffee Billy Bob".

Before I was so rudely innerrupted yesterday (yes I know that's spell wrong...innerrupted is a redneck word), my thoughts was on winter. An' I was gonna tell ya all bout it. I made it all the way to Phoenix an' in the door walks "yo mama"....jaws a flap'n. "Ya got any coffee"? In walks granddaughter. Face a glow with smiles, big ol' hugs an' a hairbrush. The phone rings....it's Billy. "I'll be there in a few minutes....ya need anything"? I can only talk to one person at a time. I quit writ'n my blog.

Me an' Billy jump in his truck an' goes to Home Depot. We gonna look at hinges for the plexiglass cabinet doors. Just in case, I take along my HD shop'n list. Dang, we almost forget the hinges an' it still costed me almost $50. Betcha a dollar ya don't know what was on my HD shop'n list. If'n ya think'n fried taters, you close.

Back at "da house", Billy get all excitis bout them hinges. Trys 'em this way an' trys 'em that way. "This ain't gonna work daddy". I take one look an' says...."modify 'em". An' that's what we did. No one will ever know. They will work perfect. I modify stuff ya know.

What I have now is no longer a flat hinge, it's a offset hinge.....just what I was need'n.

Now what could all this stuff be for?

If you guessed "spud gun from hell", you got it right. Dang....I git'n excitis. But this is a "papaw" "grandson" project, so's I got to wait for Mack to show up with his work'n clothes on. The barrel inside dimension has been decreased due to the cost of potatoes. White Rain hair spray will be the propellant, ignited with a Walmart special bbq grill spark ignition device. "Hey Bubba, watch this".

Update.....
I jist go back an' read bout 4 more comments on yesterdays post.
I need to make it plain that my insurance covers 100% what I get fixed in the US. In Mexico, I would have to pay. An' speak'n of Mexico, I ain't go'n. I don't want to go. I ain't lost nuttin there. I git all I want an' need right here at home. But....I would go shop'n there.....hint, hint, hint. "Ya ain't got no passport Billy Bob......sheesh".

  2. It's always a good day when a person can walk a straight line to the coffee pot. Sippin' my coffee is my favorite time of morning, especially when I'm sitting at a camp site in the woods and sippin' it.

  3. The first time my son built a spud gun, I was really impressed that it could shoot a couple of hundred yards. Dang, I wouldn't want to be hit with that at close range!! "Murder by potato", a good name for a mystery novel.

  4. Reckon I'd best shut up. Riling wasn't my intention. Learning quickly that what I considered a discussion isn't appropriate in blogs or their 'comments' section. Sorry and please forgive my thoughts, BB. Back to the walls!

  6. hi again ,sissy i would bet you that his insurance don't cover 100% shopping in mexico .it would seem that going shopping in mexico with wimmins is more important than his back and health problems.

    1. I don't see them as mutually exclusive activities. Each person has to decide for themselves what they are comfortable doing when it comes to doctors and surgeries and such. There were things I had done in Honduras, mostly dental, that I knew were not done to US 'standards' but were fine by me, and 1/10th the cost. I was living down there anyway. I didn't have some dental surgery done down there, I wasn't entirely trusting to that level. Mexico isn't Honduras, and I'm sure it is quite possible to get high quality care both places. When I add in the language barrier as well as being unfamiliar with how things are done, I will shop carefully for my major doctoring. I'm more inclined to go further south for major medical stuff, Cost Rica or Belize come to mind.
