  1. * June 2019 already? As I suspected in April, life did get in the way of being active more often here. When I had my family of cars & road tripped yearly (2002-2011), I visited over 35 groups & message boards regularly; I cut back a few years ago & now visit irregularly because life has sure changed over the years. I am (thus far) still alive, tho. I have been out of work since last August & job hunting is difficult; I even started my own business. But, a new bright spot is returning to the airwaves!

  2. Thank you, cahartley. I sure appreciate your kind words. In some ways, the relief is greater than the grief. Which, I suppose, is good ... & yet. Feels weird, I guess. Heck, even tough to believe he has been dead 2 months today, but time sure is flying. Life is so short & fast, & I feel like I am running out of time.

  3. * Remember me? When I last visited (mid-December 2018), I had intended to be more active; unfortunately, life got in the way. While I suspect it will again (still job hunting), I wanted to give an update. Instead of re-writing, links are below if you are interested; check out the website for other entries from late December, January & February, including my work (late December 2018 to early April 2019) for the mayor of Elgin IL via my CD Consulting Services! 03/15/2019 VYING TIME - some thoughts about life in general & links: http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2019/
  4. * I used to frequent this & many other boards daily. But, this time, it has been over 3 months since I last visited. A lot has & has not happened, & I am still job hunting. If you want to catch up, read the blog entries linked below!

  5. Thank you! Maybe now you & I can actually meet sometime before winter really sets in? I'm going to try to visit more often now, but with the job hunt, life is still a bit crazy, so we shall see.... SPEAKING OF my job search, I am wanting-willing to relocate to the southern US (preferably along Route 66 or in the Jackson-Nashville TN area). I am also looking into options for creating my OWN business. Any employment leads, ideas or suggestions!? Cort, pig&cowValves+PM, www.oldcarsstronghearts.com 2003 MGM LS + 1981
  6. LOL! So true ... luckily we DO know better. Kinda funny ... I stopped at AutoZone a week or so ago to have the codes read on my 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis LS. The associate & I were talking about reading the codes & he said: "These older cars sometimes don't store codes like the newer cars do." I literally laughed out loud ... most of the cars I've owned have been MUCH older than this ... in fact, the 2003 MGM is the NEWEST car I've ever owned! When I told him that, he said, "Well, older cars are in many ways far better than newer." Kicker? He is 20 years younger than
  7. Hey keiser, Is that at the Winco Foods in Medford, near BK & McD's, etc? If so, that's near the hotel where I was for over 4 months! & ... while I was in Medford, I saw that same Mustang a few times. Sorry we didn't get a chance to meet while I was out there ... mentioned you in 1 of my posts on my website, if you didn't see it.

  8. Funny how we're told "bait & switch" is ILLEGAL, yet ... examples of it keep coming up, apparently LEGAL. Know how employers aren't supposed to ask about health issues? They found a way around that, too ... ask about or establish "must lift at least this many pounds". UGH.

  9. * Nearly 4 months since I visited, during which time life went crazy! Interested? Check out the 3 linked posts below for details! So, what has been going on here? 07/16/2018 THE DALE - from an episode of a vintage TV series (which had also featured several stories from Medford OR) http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2018/07/16/daily-vehicle-choice-235/ 08/19/2018 CHANGING DIRECTION - connecting & memories - change attempt - health & road trips - AV license plates (for my 81mcSC) - ending the OR experience http:/
  10. * So, which is your favorite(s) of the 9 posted photos!? Seems we MAY have an apartment. Should know sometime soon, tho not sure what the definition of soon is in this case, ha. Depending on when we know for sure & when our move-in date is, I may sneak in a road trip, so let me know if you would like to see me along the way. I had cardiology & other checkups scheduled for 05/17/2018 at Northwestern in Chicago, but had to cancel those & will re-schedule them (including additional specialists given the current health issues) once I
  11. Well, dang, Jack, that might have to wait a while. I do have family friends (parents' friends) up in the Portland area, so I know I'll be up there ... sometime. Meantime, if you get to the Medford area, let me know.

  12. * So, I finally posted 9 teaser photos on OCSH; see the entry here: http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2018/05/18/cobweb-dusting/ I thought about highlighting 2-3 pics in this post, but could not decide which to feature! Which would you have featured? Meantime, we are awaiting word about approval for a possible apartment in Medford OR. If that does not pan out, I will most-likely road trip! Anyone want me to stop for a visit if I go? Speaking of, I have been without a vehicle for over 2 weeks, more difficult for me than even I imagined. Along wi
  13. Sounds good to me. I don't have a car right now, but we are currently in Medford OR. How far are you from us? Luckily, we are awaiting word about an apartment ... hope to know yet this week. BUT, we are still looking at homes. Right now, we are locked into southern OR. Tho, I do know someone who works at the hotel who is getting ready to move to northern Washington. Small world. But that is an excellent idea. My job, tho, is based in IL. So, not sure how that'll work with taxes, once we get a permanent address.....
  14. Thanks for the tip, Jack! I was over in White City last week to see a movie, actually, lol. I wanted to see 'I Can Only Imagine' & found a late-afternoon matinee for only $4! I will definitely check out that dirt track, tho. My goodness, I sure miss the 1 that was in Freeport IL. Watched a friend's cousins race there many a weekend. I can't wait to see those old cars, too, my goodness mercy me. Glad you will have a condo in June! Hopefully we can meet up, if you'd like. Hmmm ... would sure enjoy going there with you sometim
  15. I whole-heartily echo what Mike wrote ... LOL. As for the house next to you, do you have more details about it? Who should I contact? (Sending you a private message with my cell phone # to text me; thank you!) Thank you! Very sorry we weren't able to meet up before I left. If I ever visit, hopefully we can meet up, if you want. SWEET! Glad you will be here, too. We've gotten to know the area fairly well, particularly by exploring. Enjoyed it so far. We originally were with my Uncle & his wife, but as we found out later, the
