    Post Yet Another Newbie

    Hi All

    I've been lurking for a while now and am amazed at both the generosity of the members in sharing their expertise and the depth of the experience here. I stumbled on the request for info on pumpjacks and had to register to reply. I have built a cozy little shop and scrounged up the basic elements machine shop to fill it. Now all I have to do is find time to learn how to use all those toys!! Not much chance of shop time this summer. Building new accomodation for Momma and our three kids.

    Nope!

    Traverse City is still in "Troll Land"; it's under Da Bridge!

    Don't worry about me or my feelings. I rubbed shoulders with roughnecks on the oil rigs for nearly 16 years before I moved into the ivory towers of Cowtown. All of the language and ribbing here ain't nothin'

    Hey,

    Neil has me pegged! I'm a Yooper, and proud of it, eh?

    I wonder how many more are lurking around here?

    By da way, it appears dat Spring has sprung in da U.P.. We went from 36" of snow down to a nominal 8" in 'bout a week. We're seein' da Robins now, eh (don't mind my Yooper brogue)!

    Troll? Well, considering my build and looks...

    But consider, when The Creator was building the planet, where did he hold it? He left the mark of His left palm: the Lower Peninsula of Michigan.
