Too Hot To Wrench?


Recommended Posts


I just wanted to thank Jamie and Leslie for hosting their mini SD tech days yesterday. Not sure if I am crazy or lucky, but I was the only one that showed up.


In spite of the heat (111!) I had a great time and came away with a lot of knowledge. Jamie certainly knows his stuff and has all the cool tools that help make the job easier. It was also nice just hanging out with two wonderful people.


Thanks again guys!

The pleasure was ours, Bruce! thumbsup.gif


BTW, it's only 91*F right now (at 13:30 hrs) and there's a cool breeze blowing--it was already over 105*F this time yesterday heading for that 111*F! eek.gif


Sorry we didn't get to the paralever bearings/bushings and alternator belt investigation. Maybe we can give you a rain/heat check on that? grin.gif


I'll get to the rest of the wrenching sometime this week, but I've got to get busy on the master bedroom floor tile! dopeslap.gif


Thanks again to Dennis Andress for the help with the wiring of the radiant floor heating under the tile--the thin-set goes in this week! clap.gif


Funny, all this stifling heat and wrenching with my buddy "Bruce" reminds me of a Python sketch! (Oh noooooooo! dopeslap.gif )




Second Bruce: G'day, Bruce!


First Bruce: Oh, Hello Bruce!


Third Bruce: How are you Bruce?


First Bruce: A bit crook, Bruce.


Second Bruce: Where's Bruce?


First Bruce: He's not 'ere, Bruce.


Third Bruce: Blimey, it's hot in here, Bruce.


First Bruce: Hot enough to boil a monkey's bum!


Second Bruce: That's a strange expression, Bruce.


First Bruce: Well Bruce, I heard the Prime Minister use it. "It's hot enough to boil a monkey's bum in here, your Majesty," he said and she smiled quietly to herself.


Third Bruce: She's a good Sheila Bruce, and not at all stuck up.


Second Bruce: Here! Here's the boss-fellow now! - how are you Bruce?


(Enter fourth Bruce with English person, Michael)


Fourth Bruce: 'Ow are you, Bruce?


First Bruce: G'day Bruce!


Fourth Bruce: Bruce.


Second Bruce: Hello Bruce.


Fourth Bruce: Bruce.


Third Bruce: How are you, Bruce?


Fourth Bruce: G'day Bruce.


Fourth Bruce: Gentleman, I'd like to introduce man from Pommeyland who is joinin' us this year in the philosophy department at the University of Walamaloo.


Everybruce: G'day!


Michael: Hello.


Fourth Bruce: Michael Baldwin, Bruce. Michael Baldwin, Bruce. Michael Baldwin, Bruce.


First Bruce: Is your name not Bruce?


Michael: No, it's Michael.


Second Bruce: That's going to cause a little confusion.


Third Bruce: Mind if we call you "Bruce" to keep it clear?


Fourth Bruce: Gentlemen, I think we better start the faculty meeting. Before we start, though, I'd like to ask the padre for a prayer.


First Bruce: Oh Lord, we beseech Thee, Amen!!


Everybruce: Amen!


Fourth Bruce: Crack tubes! (Sound of cans opening) Now I call upon Bruce to officially welcome Mr. Baldwin to the philosophy faculty.


Second Bruce: I'd like to welcome the pommey bastard to God's own Earth, and remind him that we don't like stuck-up sticky-beaks here.


Everybruce: Hear, hear! Well spoken, Bruce!


Fourth Bruce: Bruce here teaches classical philosophy, Bruce there teaches Haegelian philosophy, and Bruce here teaches logical positivism. And is also in charge of the sheep dip.


Third Bruce: What's New-Bruce going to teach?


Fourth Bruce: New-Bruce will be teaching political science, Machiavelli, Bentham, Locke, Hobbes, Sutcliffe, Bradman, Lindwall, Miller, Hassett, and Benaud.


Second Bruce: Those are all cricketers!


Fourth Bruce: Aww, spit!


Third Bruce: Hails of derisive laughter, Bruce!


Everybruce: Australia, Australia, Australia, Australia, we love you amen!


Fourth Bruce:Bruce: Crack tube! (Sound of cans opening) Any questions?


Second Bruce: New-Bruce, are you a Poofter?


Fourth Bruce: Are you a Poofter?


Michael: No!


Fourth Bruce: No. Right, I just want to remind you of the faculty rules: Rule One!


Everybruce: No Poofters!


Fourth Bruce: Rule Two, no member of the faculty is to maltreat the Abbos in any way at all -- if there's anybody watching. Rule Three?


Everybruce: No Poofters!!


Fourth Bruce: Rule Four, now this term, I don't want to catch anybody not drinking. Rule Five,


Everybruce: No Poofters!


Fourth Bruce: Rule Six, there is NO ... Rule Six. Rule Seven,


Everybruce: No Poofters!!


Fourth Bruce: Right, that concludes the readin' of the rules, Bruce.


First Bruce: This here's the wattle, the emblem of our land. You can stick it in a bottle, you can hold it in your hand.


Everybruce: Amen!
