record lows of 18 less than a week ago
record high today expected of 88, its a 123 year old record to beat from 1899
plus its going to be very windy (50mph gusts) and i must exercise caution if using that brakleen, spray cosmoline to finish the other half of that 3rd member that i started onit yesterday
this cosmo will be tested for wear + durability 'coz i am a newb to this product., that woolwax coating on the other side of the 3rd member has a MASSIVE amount of dirt built up onit... the brakleen took that right off but made me quite nauseous in doing so

oh so what is on the docket for today....

how about some 25yr old lyric...
frum October 15, 1997

Court is in session, a verdict is in
No appeal on the docket today just my own sin
The walls cold and pale, the cage made of steel
Screams fill the room, alone I drop and kneel
Silence now the sound, my breath the only motion around
Demons cluttering around, my face showing no emotion
Shackled by my sentence, expecting no return
Here there is no penance, my skin begins to burn
So I held my head up high
Hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels their selfish pride
(And I said, ohh) All held captive out from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one
I hear a thunder in the distance, see a vision of a cross
I feel the pain that was given on that sad day of loss
A lion roars in the darkness, only he holds the key
A light to free me from my burden and grant me life eternally
Should have been dead on a Sunday morning, banging my head
No time for mourning
Ain't got no time
Should have been dead on a Sunday morning, banging my head
No time for mourning
Ain't got no time
So I held my head up high
Hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels their selfish pride
(And I said, ohh) All held captive out from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one
I cry out to God, seeking only His decision
Gabriel stand and confirms, I've created my own prison
I cry out to God, seeking only His decision
Gabriel stand and confirms, I've created my own prison
So I held my head up high
Hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels their selfish pride
(And I said, ohh) All held captive out from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one
(And I said, ohh) So I held my head up high
Hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels their selfish pride
(And I said, ohh) All held captive out from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one
Should have been dead on a Sunday morning, banging my head
No time for mourning
Ain't got no time

.... currently trying to change the rear shocks on the truck from Toyota brand put on in 2o2o 117k miles ago to some KYB from AAP

driver side came off easier than expected, no stuck bushings and such... but the passenger was a challenge with the cramped space and a bushing sorta melted it appears which could be from the heat of the muffler IDK ???
