I have laughed a couple of times today thinking about a thing the guy across the table told me
There was this guy in that village that had a private "gunrange" were he practised.
The boys overheard a conversion were a man said..I wounder how safe one is from that shoting,
im right in the direction from that damned gunrange.

So Eero got an idea. They went to the range
picked up some Mauser bullets from the sandpit behind the targets.
Then they went to the man with the safetyconsernes greenhouse
and pushed bullets in a bunch of his tomatoes. ;D
The man blew a fuse and went to the policestation with a couple of
shot tomatoes. The cops confiscated the gunrangeguys guns
The village was in uproar divided i two sides
Cops did an thorough investigation on possible balistics on 6.5 Mauser
and found ...........No holes in the glass on the greenhouse ;D ;D ;D ;D
Thats the way Eero was always bright ideas  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Sorry for your loss, Heo. My father passed away last Saturday. We're burying him tomorrow. He was a dedicated Ford guy that worked at the Lima engine plant for 30 years. Started me off on flatheads as soon as I could walk.

Lost way too many friends the last several years also. Almost became one of them when I had a bad heart attack right before Christmas. Life is short, so make the best of it and appreciate your friends and family while you're able to. I'm lucky enough to count you as a friend.  :)

Sorry for your loss Doug, I remember i met him briefly when we was at your place.
He said if i ever had owned a 460 chances was big he had instaled the right head on it i think

So you had a hart attack? I hope you recover fully. Yes life is short time to fully enjoy what we have left of it
my friend

Heo -  I'm sorry for the loss of your friend  :-[ 

Yeah, they're finally starting to understand the risks of sustained electromagnetic radiation exposure.  I remember as a kid reading about State Police officers getting testicular cancer from portable radar guns.  When they weren't shooting cars, they would rest the guns in their laps...

Again, my condolences for your loss.

Thanks Bill

Well i started it two times, one to brake in the cam one to make the video.
And as you hear it starts on first compression. Did it both times as i primed the floatbowls
before first start up so not much risk to chew up the ring gear

Today i have folowed Eero, a childhood friend to the grave. Brain tumor , he was given 3 months to live.
He fighted for 10 years, the last years was awful.
Airforce officer and helicopter pilot, tumor on the headset side as many helicopter pilots get according
to my Doctor friend.
Remember first time we met when we were 5, he hit me in the head with a Oxy/Acetylen torch.
I guess it was his Finnish way to say lets be friends ;D
As kids we had a lot of fun and sometimes we barely survived the fun like the time we took a full
package of blackpowder of his father and.....
And all the mailboxex we blew up with firecrackers, bought or homebrewed
He was the first one i saw live with a pair of Cowboy boots we was 9 or 10 i sooo wanted a pair myself
Figure that, two  9 year old punkass kids running around in cowboyboots and uggly 70s clothes.
We thoght we was cool. But we probably  looked like idiots

Matces was a problem to get, but we found out this old wierd guy Sven. Who gave us matches and candy and soda
and wanted us to stay and hang out and ....nahhhh something in his behavior told us to leave as soon
as we got matches. Found out later he was a pedofile

Now at the dinner after the funeral i had an old guy on the other side of the table.We started to talk
then i recognised him same age as me ::). he used to hang out with us sometimes, then he became
a feared criminal/fighter went to jail we lost contact now he is an old tired man.

Me and Eero lost contact he joined the Airforce and moved away. Met him now and then when he was home
and we bump into each others in town. Or i met him at his brother tireshop and now he is gone...Thats life i guess

Nowadays i wisit more funerals than weddings :'( whos next of the childhood friends ?
