Well, for starters, i took off the cargo cover off elmo, the top bows, the troop seats, and loaded it with as much scrap steel as i coulud stuff in it. I have a 1997 for escort in there, 2 jeep bodies, 2 frames, LOTS< AND LOTS of misc scrap steel bit and pieces, etc, etc. I wil take it to the scrap yard in a few weeks probably. how do you fit all that stuff in you ask? well you have to SMOOSH it! what a better smoosher than an elmo truck?









the end result, an 18 inch tall ford escort!

You mean he managed to suck up to you enough that you let him stay at home instead of kicking him out?

That definitely looked like fun. I spent the day trying to stop my acura integra from falling apart...more. For now it seems to have worked.

Nice Dave!  I knew deuce's made things go squish, but it's always fun to see the end results LOL.

I worked all weekend.  I wish I had something more elaborate to say what I did, but I'm on weekends for a few more weeks.  I *am* on my weekend now though, a whole four days off.  Besides trying to help a buddy get a job, the big focus will be cleaning house (things either for sale, donation or a giant bonfire - guess which one I prefer!) and doing all sorts if "mundane" but relaxing chores.

Got a decent paycheck I haven't had time to cash, worked at the theatre, dealt with 500+ cantankerous elderly wanting to see an opera. Why my movie theatre streams operas from the Met, I'll never know, but for the hours I get and the money I make I can't complain.

I went Airsofting all weekend finally! I waste so much money on this dang hobby and usually only get my trigger time for a couple of Ops and Eastwind.... Almost forgot the joys of double tapping 9 year olds.  Roll Eyes

Blasting kids is the BEST part of a weekend skirmish!

Last weekend I didn't do shit, but this weekend my wife is hosting a mafia/gang wars style game at my local field.  I've been asked to play hitman for one of the sections, and if I keep my fingers crossed, my KZS will arrive in time.
