My girlfriend had a Subaru when we were younger and it was such an obnoxious exhaust....
I would much rather hear a Mustang or GTO...
Some flow masters or glass packs welcomed!!!
The neighbor I have now has a red Volkswagen Jetta for work.
another loud obnoxious muffler that isn’t interesting ....but annoying. 🙄
You'd rather hear a freakin Mustang? Seriously?????????????

We were up early to get my truck to the MVA for “emissions test” (better known as a money grabbed by the State of MD). No line at 0600 - it’s self serve... we tried earlier in the week and there were a good 20 cars. Thats about a two hour wait.

Drove through the Beltsville Ag Research Center down the road from our house. Looking peaceful this hazy humid, morning.

They were called Smog tests when I hadda do them in California, and my car started failing that test when I started altering my engines...my mechanic had to retard or advance the idle (I think) so the car hardly ran to pass. 15 years ago I moved to Oregon...NO FREAKIN EMISSIONS TEST IN OREGON!!!

Wow !!!!
I see cows!!!
How cool!
I only get to see cows when we go upstate for the weekend.... (many years ago)
I don’t know why but when I see an animal that is not “found in the city”
I am amazed??
Soooo cool!!
Cows, pigs, goats,chickens, lama’s,
Heck, I even get excited when I see a nice train go by!
It fascinates me!!
Thanks for those really beautiful pictures!!
Cows fart methane gasses and contribute in global warming...

Hello everyone, everything is good here. The worst thing happening to me is I get nose bleeds often. Got to be the new blood thinner. So things are going pretty good with only that inconvenience. 😁
I just took a break from most things going on. I found you can ignore situations but they will be waiting for you. 😖 Hope everyone and your families are doing fine

Opo had his 4th birthday and weigh on thurs.

I thought both Oregon & Washington State were kind of climate/environmentally friendly? Nothing wrong with keeping highly polluting vehicles off the road, or at least “fixed” to limit pollution? No?

Somehow when they started blaming cows for global warming I had to laugh. What about all the people farts. Are we so perfect we don't fart methane? I guess when we become vegan like a cow we might though ☺️

None in Ohio either. Not even safety checks like brakes, horn, etc. I mail my renewal in for my tags or sticker.

Yes that’s true.. I’d prefer a nice 65 mustang... 🤪
Now.... YOU guys figure that one out.😉

It was extremely quiet when it was sitting there in the traffic! 🤣

Here in NJ you get beat down if you even have a sticker on the dashboard!!
They even get under your car with mirrors!!!
That’s why I NEVER wear a skirt when I go to inspection.. 😊

Ohio used to do safety checks and all that but then they changed it to drive by pop-up inspections. It would be you were driving by and surprise you're getting a ticket because your car needs fixed 😜 I've not seen one lately but I'm not out and about much.😁

Good morning and happy Tuesday all.
We had a good heavy downpour last night which is great for the gardens.
A hedgehog made an appearance again just as it was getting dark. I heard him rustling about in the leaves in a corner of my garden so put some food down near him and saw him tucking into that shortly after. I caught him on my trail camera the night before, but I dont know if he just pops in to visit or if he has a nest somewhere. My hog house doesn't look as if it's been disturbed but can't check in case I disturb him. I'll leave the camera near it tonight.
Hope you all have a good day, I've lots to do but no enthusiasm for doing it.
Maybe I'll go shopping instead.
