Mustard trouble - help?
[Return to Topics]

Need some help here.

Last night I had a choice of sticking a sideways Toyota in the grille of our F-350, or putting down my jumbo cheesburger hot dog with onion,mustard, and sauerkraut. I put the dog down. Mostly I dropped it next to me and grabbed the wheel.

I had a 200 mile drive last night. Lots of ice on the back roads leaving the farm. But this happened on a 4 lane. The Toyoyo just passed me.
In a hurry I guess. Next thing I see is his headlights, then his taillights, then his headlights again. He skidded backward into a bank
on the right side of the roadway.

I was doing about 45 mph. He must have been doing 70 mph. He was lucky. My truck seat wasn't. I did scoop up the dog and finish it. It was cold by the time I got flares lit and made sure he wasn't bleeding anywhere.

He was already on his cell phone calling AAA when I got back to his car. I should have gotten his address and sent him a bill for another dog.

The seats clean up easy enough. Better that than scratching up your bumper.

I bet he was the most important person on the road and he had to somewhere VERY important, lol. I always like to say that when someone goes barrelling past me, and then at the next light I pull up right next to him, so he didn't really get anywhere. lol Sure messed up his plans, haste makes waste, right? :) Sorry about your hot dog though, you got out with less damage than he did at least. :)

drive like crazy and beat you to the stop light.
We have a friend that says people like that suffer 'Entitlement Disorder". LOL!!!

Still would like to hear of a good way to get mustard off of a cloth seat.

Take Care-

I use Shout on everything. Works for me, or 409!

Hey Mike, were you the one to post pictures of a beautiful wood cabinet you were working on?
I was wondering if you had posted a pic of the finished work.

Hello down there in the warm sun!
I posted some photos of a job I did. I put them in the gallery. I believe they are titled 'county cabinets'. Can't remember if I posted any afterward. White cabinets and desktop? Nice folks to work for. She told me that they had 64 grandkids! Big family.

What a beautiful job you did!
There are two of the pictures but not the finished work, no need to, anyway.
We are about to start to build all the desktops and cabinets for the computers room. I'm not as skillful as you are but I want the final result to be smooth so it'll take a lot of sanding, depending on the wood, and a good pore treatment. What kind of wood did you use?

Hi Patria,
Sounds like a fun project to organize a computor room. Our desk is the family catch-all
Those cabinets were made with birch venner plywood. The face frames are made out of poplar.
The doors were poplar also.
The paint is a water based epoxy. Great stuff to use. I spray paint most jobs like this. I use a Fuji HVLP sparayer. Some paint stores rent them. The paint drys enough to wet sand in 45 minutes! It can be rolled or brushed also.
It is called 'acrylic co-polymer' and I'd recommend it.
If you use this type of paint get the primer that goes with it. You will cut your sanding in half, or more.
Let me know how the project goes. It sounds like a good one, to be sure.

Regards from snowy Virginia.

Onion, mustard and saurkraut? Well, first I'd try a half bottle of Maalox....;)

Aw c'mon,    Posted 01-30-2004 at 13:51:43       [Reply]  [No Email]
Red Dave,
Don't you like that combination? How about sardines, feta cheese and greek olives for lunch?
Umm- yummie.

It all sounds good to me. I like all those things, problem is that as I get older, those things don't seem to like me very much. Usually start to complain about an hour or so after I eat them :(
