Day By Day


  • hbbill

    He, she, it? Zhe, zer, zit?

    • GWB

      I use “s/he/it” for the more troublesome pronoun people.
      It works best in verbal communications.

      • S Hooks

        Especially when you say them all together slowly and stretch it out…

    • Merle

      zit – isn’t that another name for pimple??? 🙂


  • JTC

    Right there with you Red…replaced torsion bar bushings on the motorhome this weekend, simple for a one-time millwright right? Right.

    Called that F-Series Dually chassis a lot of names in the process, but bitch fits it and all those X-Series “duallies” best. Still think the Ford looks better than them though.

    • Pamela

      How many knuckles did you bust…

      • JTC

        Eleven including when that heavy m’er f’n bracket fell on my big toe…shoulda booted up like Red instead of the flip-flops huh?

        • Pamela

          First Rule of any project is ALWAYS wear the proper PPE.
          Do you need kisses to make it better…

          • JTC

            That would be nice, from the toes up.

            ‘Course then LBGG (Little Blonde Georgia Girl) would be certain to send me Toes Up (TU, Tango Uniform) in some unpleasant way, so…guess not, but thank ya ma’am, just the thought alone is virtually soothing!

  • Kafiroon

    That has to be a “newer” Cuda. The 60’s ones would only understand “Bitch”.

  • JTC

    Red’s calling bitch here but she’s busy being one at the new Redvolution.

  • Okay, that was funny, and time sensitive.

  • someroman

    Oy-vey Xi-Xer!

  • WayneM

    Working on a Cuda transmission on the ground ain’t for sissies… Although it was years ago, I’ve always been a patient man but the last time I did that, after busting my knuckles several times, when I finally finished, I threw the wrench from under the car and it stuck in the OSB wall of my garage… Yeah, I’d had enough.

    The four post lift for home garages is a wonderful invention. Just saying.

  • Pete231

    I feel her pain. I had a ’69 Road Runner with the MoPar A-833 4-speed. The vile beast was impossible to row until it had a 5 mile warm-up. Plus, the steaming POS factory shifter was a recalcitrant turd no matter much I adjusted the damn linkage. No tears were shed when that cold-blooded hoor left my driveway.

    • nonncom

      Dog leg Hurst?…Looked good, but too long a throw for my taste…

    • Bob in Houston-Vast Right Wing Basket of deplorable!

      I hear that, I’ve got a basket case ’66 Satellite 2 dr with the same tranny, it was no fun to pull by myself and get on the bench for an eventual tear down.

  • JackDeth 72

    Plymouths have long been proud of their history of being contrary.

    Might I suggest a BMFH and a wide bladed Screw Stick?

    • Doggo

      Agree on the contrary Plymouth. I “inherited” one when I married a cute young girl. First thing I did (once we got back from honeymoon) was sell the damn Plymouth and get her a Pontiac. I swear they designed the sharp edges into the engine compartment on purpose.

  • Hardball

    I preferred the 57 300C with TorqueFlight

  • Bill

    Color that non-binary.

  • PaulS

    Damn boots!

    • Bob in Houston-Vast Right Wing Basket of deplorable!

      no boots going on over at Redvolution1776! 😉

  • Pecan Scandi

    Wrenching on her ‘Cuda. Works for me.

  • 'TreHammer

    …seems like that ‘cuda is always in need of some kind of repair…I think Sam just likes to tinker with it…just sayin’ …

  • Spin Drift

    Wenching on her ‘cooter, oh for the slip of the tongue. But really you haven’t been a mechanic until you’ve done a “clutch my tranny” job with hand tools and jack stands. The last time I did that everybody within hearing distance learned new words.

    And the wheels go round and round, round and round.

    • Pamela

      Wenching? *chuckling*
      *looks at Spin over glasses*

      • Spin Drift

        Spins generously offers The Lady Pamela a dram of 18 year old and asks if she is up for some cunning repartee.

        Forever looking for the right snap-on.

        • Pamela

          Make it a fine sipping tequila and we can articulate tools and their proper usage

  • Old Codger

    This ain’t California yet.

    No, but the Kali expatriot assholes in Austin, Houston and Dallas are doing their damndest to change that. They’re like the illegals from Central and South America. Bust their hump to get outta some place then turn around and do their best to convert the new place into a copy of what they left. Damned if I can figure it out.

    • Bob in Houston-Vast Right Wing Basket of deplorable!

      I keep hearing people saying that liberals are moving to Texas, they ain’t “moving” here, they are metastasizing.

    • NotYetInACamp

      That is basic cult mentality.

  • NotYetInACamp

    Oh MAN! Sam is so up on what’s happening in world affairs.
    She has that bitch Xi all figured out. Xi has China in transmission China.

    Summarized in just one sentence: “China’s economic challenge is that the successful model of the last twenty years will not work in the next twenty years.”

    Or. A new bitching is coming.

    Sam knows her transmissions.

    • Delilah T.

      That’s strange. I just watched one of JFK’s 1960 debates with Dick Nixon. He said essentially the same things about the USA – not satisfied with the status quo, must move forward, must do more.

      If we can break the fingers of those trying to put a chokehold on this country of ours, we’ll move further forward and leave those twits behind, wondering what they missed.

      Now that would be awesome.

      • NotYetInACamp

        Visualizing good does not make it happen.
        There is that hard work thingee with the preparation, and doing and the busted knuckles and the mashed toes, and the leaking transmission oil all over the place. And such.
        I used to listen to JFK’s speeches on tapes at the Library at Notre Dame when I was a student. They were great. That was several classes worth of time used for self education. Such simpler times that I thought those were.

        I vote and act for making awesome real.

  • Personally, for cases such as this, I like the general, all inclusive, pronoun; ‘She/it/he’, pronounced fast.

    • Amazing how that sounds exactly like a simple four letter word, isn’t it? I always thought it was more like she/he/it.

  • Delilah T.

    Just don’t throw your hands up and walk away.

  • gruundehn

    My military service was as an electronics technician. Whenever any piece of electronics was being stubborn, I just threatened its grandchildren. I still do that with my computer/tablet/phone. It even works sometimes.

    • NotYetInACamp

      Smack it.
      There are micro growths of metal that sometimes need to be destabilized and broken in electronic equipment. The electrons have that effect and help metal migrate into bad places sometimes. But you already knew that. Did they?
      I fixed my A/C last year by a swift hard kick. The slave is back to work. (Now some damm computer space intelligence is going to come and get me for not recognizing all electronic and electrical equipment as intelligent life forms. Life’s a bitch. Aint it. Xi.)
