Coffee Brake: Lettuce Discuss

Time for another Coffee Brake, but this week instead of providing a subject for discussion, I am going to open it up for you, the reader.  Go ahead, ask something of your fellow DT reader, mention what you are doing this weekend, whatever.


Off topic comments below.

  1. There is nothing more depressing than winterizing cars and boats for storage. Where did summer go?
    It has that same feeling as leaving a sports event where your favorite team just got crushed and they are out of the finals.

    Here in Michigan I had better get it done in the next 2 weeks before the first hard freeze arrives and I crack a block or two.
    I just put the 1984 Audi Avant in storage. So that is done. I still have the jet ski, my friend's twin engine boat, the Miata, and the wife's Mustang II to finish.
    Then you have the yard machines! AHhhh!

    Actually something more depressing is when you swap the snow tires on your daily drivers right after Thanksgiving.
    No, what is actually even more depressing is when you are working on a car in the cold!

    Where is DoctorDel when you need him? I need some anti-depressants.
    Or maybe I just need a good snow for the Quattro!

    1. Don't forget to test fire the snow blower! There's always a price to be paid in MI. Our yard was a pass-through yard in the fall (meaning all of our leaves blew into the neighbors yard), but our primary garage door was a collection point (2-ft of snow in front of it when only 6-in fell). It all balances out.

    3. Mon frere, Rene! May I proffer a virtual facefull of South Florida sunshine to brighten the shortening days that face you?

      Before heading to the hospital this morning I saw a white heron stare down an alligator in my back yard and my mind immediately went to how that scene was the ideal metaphor for my LeMons experiences. Those tiny, fleet Miatas wth their perfect balance and tiny hamster mills just stare down my lumbering, toothy, clumsy Das Camaro and deny deny deny its voracious appetite, pecking and harassing at every corner as the gap between us incrementally widens...whoever said that there's no replacement for displacement must've never had to experience sharing a corner with a Miata driven with a deft hand.

    8. Thanks, timbuck2. I've just been extremely busy, as I'm sure many of my fellow DTers have been. In case anybody was wondering, I did end up buying an M3...made by Case. I like it so far. Picture of it:
