    My first cracked neck repair, How long wait to string up?

    I did this one about five yrs ago. I clamped it for 72 hrs (TiteBond III) and let it sit for a week before I restrung. Good as new, even gigged it again. Good luck with yours.

    Any Hot Wheels aficionados here?

    I'm no aficionado, but I thought it was one of the best toys I ever had. We got them in 68 when they first came out. I was 10. The orange tracks that you could build your own circuits with, the little house with the spinning foam rubber wheels inside that shot them out fast enough to do loops...

    RIP James Hampton

    Didn't recognize the name, but instantly recognized the face. Watched F Troop as well. I would've been about eight. RIP

    Unnecessarily wordy. You just have to say 'white male'.

    A question for my Canadian friends

    I'm Canadian, ex Navy vet (70s/80s) and if asked, would have said maybe 1%. So I googled a bit, and the numbers I came up with were approx 600,000 living vets. Works out to 1.6% of the population. :thumb: Wasn't going to bother breaking it down by gender

    RG500 Gamma

    Our old lead singer raced a 500 Gamma for at least ten years in the 80's/90's. I rode it once. I'm not a 2 stroke guy, but I'd have one of them in a heartbeat. Power to weight was unbelievable. The Yamaha RZ500 was a dog by comparison.

    Cupcake? Heresy? Pony? 4 stacks of plexi?

    Just sat down in my chair, done for the day, looked out the window and saw an eagle fly by. Spring is here!.

    What was your worst...

    My ideal weight has always been whatever I weighed at that moment. When I left home at 19, I was 5' 9" and 145 lbs. I turn 63 this month, and I'm as heavy as I've ever been at 165 ( and shrunk to 5' 8" :laugh2: ). Starve me or stuff me, my weight has never fluctuated. It's taken me 44 years to...
