    Re: Jack Stand Recall

    I have four stands, all bought years ago. Two are orange but the movable part has a flatter top, not V-shaped. The other two are blue and of a different design. I don't use them.

    Re: Mystery Lexus??

    I never doubted you - but that "Lexus" emblem had me fooled. I guess that was the point.
    It was just a customized Stinger - like my 1952 Ford with a Pontiac grille.

    Re: It's a jungle out there!

    Neighbors reported a bear in their yards one block from where I live. Pictures were supplied. Looks like a young male searching for his own territory. Got to be careful when I put up my bird feeder.

    Re: Tonight's job - sewing machines.

    When we were first married, we bought a sewing machine with its own table. You flipped the top upside down and the machine was there to work. It was never used. Still sits in my finished basement.
