I was gonna say Pete, BlackJack Speed Shop is the only place I go for alignments. You two speak the same lingo...

Mike, Uhm, I'll keep my switchblade... Funny my knees have never had an issue getting into the steering column or the key fob...

How's things out Houston way... .

All going well out here... just trying to manage cut backs and layoffs (not me). Hope you weather the storm in your area of expertise.

Hope you can make the Revolution and bring Brandi with you..

Brandi is still a while away from being ready for much of anything, but we'll see... I'm taking any work they throw at me right now. I've only worked five days this year so far...

Pete, it's bad right now... Over 100,000 layoffs to this point... Rigs are stacked all over the world... Onshore and offshore...

according to the call I had this am I'm good for the time being there just are not many jobs to be had. It's slow but not at risk of layoff right now. I've only worked five days this far this year

Yeah but that's as much as I made working every day.


Seriously tho, I hope to hell this doesn't last. Some of the long term projects are already too far in to stop so they keep going, but a lot of rigs are shutting down. I don't see our activity slowing that much yet except for the shale stuff.

The motor is fully supported by the so far untrimmed motor plates... And the dry sump pan is test fitted.
