re: Once again I went to Houston to buy a new vehicle vs north shore/BR dealers. - GrantTheFan
I saved $200 over any price a Houston or Dallas dealer would give, right here in Baton Rouge - without flying or driving anywhere. I guess it pays to know how to talk to people in person and not be afraid....

re: Buying a new boat or restoring an older model? - GrantTheFan
Go to YouTube and search Friscoboater. He has an entire series refurbishing an old sea ray boat. It's an interesting series and I watched every one of them but it's A LOT of work. That said, if you have the skills and the time, I can see it being a very satisfying project....

The fishing functionality won't come close to that of a dedicated fishing boat, but that doesn't seem to be what you wa...

re: Gravely Model L repair - GrantTheFan
Thanks, Corndog. I know the carb was in pretty bad shape when it was last running. Compression should be good, it was overhauled with a bore/new piston about 10 years ago and not much use since. The guy who did the work then is no longer with us and none of the local dealers will look at it. E...

re: LSP Vegas Trip Gets Worse: They deleted texts - GrantTheFan
What struck me about this is that the LSP can easily recover your deleted texts if they were investigating you or me. Investigating themselves, "well the texts have been deleted. Too bad."...

re: Gary Chamber's Facebook Post re Barron Trump - GrantTheFan
I Didn't see the post so can't give an exact quote. A friend of mine told me Gary deleted his post making fun of Barron for "having something wrong with him" but didn't remember the exact wording. If that's true, I'd like a screenshot of it....

re: Gary Chamber's Facebook Post re Barron Trump - GrantTheFan
Correct, that's the narrative. Again, I didn't see the post, just heard about it. If the telling I heard is accurate, this is something I feel disqualifies Gary from serving for the mayor and for the new NBR Economic Development Authority....
