… instead of shutting up, I drone on more about my desire to have a new bumper, a storage box/bed, and installing D-rings.
This has not been a very fun couple of weeks for Big White Bus. My all time favorite thing on an automobile to work on is the electrical system. /end sarcasm.
I live by five simple rules.
- I don’t play with electricity.
- I won’t live any place I’m not the tertiary member of the food chain.
- I never get less than twelve hours sleep.
- I never play cards with guys who have the same first name as a city.
- I’ve never gotten involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body.*
The twelve hours of sleep has long since become merely a guideline and no so much a rule. And playing with electricity is also sometimes necessary. This week especially. […]
I was grounded this weekend with what is probably bronchial pneumonia. Lots of coughing, a very high heart rate from the medications, and an overall very tired feeling. Being relegated to the couch and bed all weekend, I watched a lot of television. I watched an entire afternoon of Star Wars movies. Episode 4 and Episode 5 mostly. I’m not a fan of
The Muppet Show Episode 6 due to the ridiculous effort to cutesy-fy the franchise and merchandise the crap out of it. Okay back to the main point I came here to write.
The Millennium Falcon is obviously a Land Rover.
By now you must be saying “What.the.hell?” So hear me out…. […]

The beverage is most often one from the British Isles but not necessarily so. See also “victory rum and coke”. We get proclaim victory and[…]
I’ve resolved that this weekend will be mostly electrical in nature on the Range Rover. This is not my favorite thing to fix. I took electronics at Mid-America Vo-tech school when I was still in high school. I was only mildly interested in it. My dad was an electronic technician for the Federal Aeronautics Administration (FAA). He[…]
Last weekend I dragged my neighbor Fish4OSU up to JagGuy’s shoppe to see if I had a spare starter on my spare engine. Unfortunately I did not. On a whim and a suggestion we went by the local “pull-a-part” which I learned today is not part of the national chain. It is U-Pull-It, whatever. Fish4OSU[…]
I love electrical problems. I love them like I love ingrown toenails. I love them like I love getting speeding tickets. I love them like I love getting phone calls from my children telling me they have dropped ANOTHER cell phone in a toilet or a sink at work or jumped in the swimming pool[…]
I attempted to repair the central locking system on Veteran’s Day. I could write this post in the form of a battle, but I will not. I won’t write the post in that form mainly because… “History is written by the victors.” – Winston Churchill So with that quote you have probably figured out I[…]
