How do ya build baby moon hubcaps???

Ok, I got to take me a minute or two to write something. I been a busy man ya know....an' somebody may be interested in what I'm do'n.

Yesterdays appointment. It went well. Fill out a gazillion papers an' go sit in the doctors office....wait'n. It weren't a long wait an' in come the doctor assistant. He say "howdy, what the hell you here for"? Well, not them exact words, but they sound good. Check all my stuff, blood pressure, temp.....that kind of stuff. Starts lay'n out needles, big ol' knifes, bandage materials....needle an' thread.....some welder gloves an' a band aid. Then the doc come in. Look at the thing on my shoulder..."hain't nuttin to it". Do you take any blood thinner medications. "Yup I do, up to 2000mg of aspirin some days". My minor surgery has been postponed due to the fack I could bleed slap to death. October 19th. 20 minute procedure.

Yesterday an' again today, I ain't had to take my normal dose of them aspirins. Back feel pretty dad gum good for a change. That all I got to say bout that.

Busy busy busy. I'm gonna build a custom boat trailer. I'm gonna say custom 'cause I have to make it fit my Chris Craft boat.....what is longer than this one.

Ain't that one snazzy look'n trailer? Posted xtra large so's you can see the beauty of it.

I went to Hobby Lobby to look for other parts. I fount me some exact size wooden wheels. Then I went an' pick out some wooden sticks to build the trailer framework. I'm think'n it's bout the right size. Some measurements was made an' I start glue'n them sticks together. Damn, it looks just like a boat trailer.

 Ha ha, posted this size so's you cain't see the mistakes. Yes, there are 2. The wheels an' tires will be painted exactly like the photos above. Anybody know how to make mini "baby moons"?

Ok, one more photo without the boat.


Work on the boat has been put on hold until the humidity an' temps are back to "apply epoxy resin" conditions. Weather has been terrible in Georgia for build'n a boat....rain an' too chilly (lower 70's, 80+ humidity). Every freak'n day.

  3. hi BB. on the 19th of october 2015 when you get your 20 minute minor surgery , i want you to remember that ,that is the exact day that canadians are going to the polling stations and voting for the next prime-minster .( we americans call this position President ). by 9pm all polls will be closed . the last thing canada needs is 4 more years of stephen harper .prime-minister pierre eliot trudeau's son is what canada needs .

  5. hi BB. i was wondering why you are working inside your house on the boat and trailer . what you call chilly and lower 70°'s ,i would give anything to have heavenly weather including the rain . i am dying with temperatures well into the upper 90°s and 80% humidity .

    1. What the hell Louie, this is comment #14 for today.
      LOL, you seem to think I am building a very small boat an' trailer for thumb tacks to be big enough for baby moons.
      Boat is 28 1/2 inch long....9 inch wide. Trailer wheels an' tires are 2 1/2 inches diameter....takes a 1 inch baby moon.

  9. You can buy snap sets for jeans that look a lot like baby moon hubcaps. Now you have three options to check out. See what good friends we are?
