  1. https://www.surlyhorns.com/board/index.php?/forum/19-best-buy-coupons/
  2. Quick question ya’ll. Do you suppose those ruskie soldiers are still stuck in that elevator?
  3. I just did a drive by on Google Maps and saw this nice lady out front, so there is that going for it. The front of her shirt says "What if" and I would like to imagine that the back says "you go fuck yourself".
  4. Just purchased 10 lovely nights at an Air B&B in lovely Odesa, Ukraine. I hear the beaches are beautiful this time of year. My host Наталья seems like a real nice lady with a spare room.
  5. Jesus Christ just throw the Fucking thing in the dumpster already.
  6. Remember when 60 minutes ran a story about the Selma-Schertz speed trap on 35. I think the feds basically shut it down by saying that local municipalities couldn’t write tickets on interstate highway. Texas Monthly has a story on it too called “The Perfect Speed Trap” if you want to read more about it.
  7. I bought a 2020 Ram 1500 Lonestar for around 8% under MSRP this week, so I think the market might be loosening up a little. Only got $3k for a 2005 F150 XLT which I probably could of gotten $5k for privately, so who knows. I put about $10 k down a took advantage of 0% financing on a 4 year note. Seemed like a square deal — all things considered. One thing I do know is that I’m enjoying all that new technology that’s in my new truck over that 2005.
  8. The company that did it was Texas Premier Coat You can see the process at their website: Www.texaspremiercoat.com They were awesome to deal with and delivered more than they promised. I had a couple of lower bids but they were for a single color with no pattern. The guy that did the actual work was an artist and worked his ass off to deliver the best end product. Owner: Brett Installer: Junior.
  9. I’ve been considering buying a used truck but the pricing is so ridiculous that now I’m considering buying new. I found a dealer in Austin that is selling Ram 1500s 10% below MSRP. That seems to be about the best out there now. Does this sound reasonable or should I continue to wait? I’m driving a 2005 F150 now so trade in value isn’t really part of the equation. They offered me about $4500 on that.
  10. We hired Power Home Remodeling. I have no idea regarding code compliance issues. Power downplayed it when I asked (our house was built in the mid-70’s). I’m concerned but it’s out of my control so full steam ahead.
  11. I’m replacing our windows - no changes in size, number, or location. Contractor pulling COA permit and said City will do a final inspection including fire inspection checking smoke alarm compliance or some such bullshit.
  12. I asked upthread if anyone had any luck resurfacing their pool deck. We just had ours completed and for $10k it was transformed from 1980 to 2021. Here are the before and after pictures.
