I've found that they fit my feet the best.
Have been disappointed with latest offerings.
Hard enough to find shoes that fit my size 13 feet in the first place.

Yes, you could have, but mom can't make up mind. Nothing new.

What about it don't you like?

I like how it's usually just such a large amount, and the flavor and texture is so varied in just a single piece.

Surprising...when you aren't there work actually get's done

But basically Nate swapped his diff and rear swaybar, Kalim changed ricks radiator/spark plug/fuel filter. He will likely have more to post about it all when he gets back from picking up his mom
Tons of work gets done when I'm around, including self ejecting brake pad retainers!

Yo calipers be like: "FIRE ZE MISSILES!!!"

*ping! ping!*

Turn 1: 4th
Turn 2: 2nd
Turn 3: 2nd/3rd
Turn 4: 3rd
Turn 5: 3rd
Turn 6: 3rd
Turn 7: 3rd
Turn 8/8A: 2nd
Turn 9: 3rd
Turn 10: 3rd
Turn 11: 2nd

4th is only hit at one point on the track. Never a need to go into 1st, 5th, or 6th.

Loooooooong day today.
Didn't get nearly as much done on Rick's car as I had hoped.

Did the fuel filter without any issues except having to replace one damaged section of hose. Had spare hose on hand so no biggie.

Spark plugs got complicated because the #5 plug, which was time-serted by some shop a while back, decided to pull the insert along with it and then refused to separate from it. So need a new insert if this plug is going to be changed. Not much time wasted, though.

Then got to the radiator replacement. Fan clutch would not release even after liberal application of WD-40 and prying to the point of bending my largest screwdriver. Wasted over an hour on that until I was able to lift the shroud enough to detach the fan from the clutch. Replaced radiator and ET easily, but again had to struggle with fan and shroud. Finally put it together, bled the system, and noticed that the coolant temperature sensor is leaking. 5th car this winter season.

Meanwhile helped Nathan with a few diff-related things on the car. Also helped Dru figure out how to get his worn camber arms apart.

Now exhausted.
