Or do what JS@PMS said, kill and grill it? That's cattle rustling, that'll get ya up to 10 years in the clink down here in Texas. Plus anyone ever butcher an animal? I've done goats, deer & hogs, and its a lot of work, couldn't imagine a 1500lb+ cattle.

Also, I ain't a thief

I bought a pumpkin. This thing was $45, but I got it for $20. It's HUGE!!!!

I almost have all the parts to fix the Edge.
Is it a black cat for Halloween??

When I was like 4 or so, my dad's side of the family bought 8 pigs to butcher and yeah huge pain. That took up a lot of room. Can't imagine the size of equipment to handle a 3/4+ ton animal to be butchered or the amount of time to do it.

I'm glad you got a cat again. I find animals are great companions. (I tend to talk to my dog all the time )

Default Trick-o-treatin'

Mwahahah....
After all of the trading and sorting, I ended up with a WICKED candy haul!
I actually wasn't planning to go trick or treating until the day of, but my mom wanted me to take my little sis out in our neighborhood, so I decided to slap together a last minute cowboy costume and get free candy!
All the stuff was stuff I already had, so it didn't look fake, since it was real stuff(Levi's and work boots).
And then after getting candy in our neighborhood for about 45 minutes, our dad drove us over to our grandparents' rich neighborhood! We hit the jackpot there! People were giving out full size candy bars and handfuls of the little stuff!
Then we got to come home and trade with each other and mom's leftover stash, so we got good Air Heads and Haribo gummies and the like.
It really was a happy Halloween!

Nice!!!

We don't do the whole Halloween thing in SA. It just isn't a tradition here. There might be a Halloween party or something like that, but there is no trick or treating or that type of thing

I havent been trick or treating in almost 20 years now. Last time I went, I came home with close to a pillow case and a half full of candy. Been too cold in the Midwest for the past 10 or 15 years for there to be trick or treaters. We use to get 100+ kids each Halloween.

Yeah, trick or treating seems to be fading in popularity.
I guess kids just want to play on their PS4s instead.
Half a pillowcase is about the max that I've ever gotten, even in the rich neighborhoods, less than 1/3 of the houses are giving out candy.
Ah well, still got a good haul! Next up: Thanksgiving!

I take my daughter out trick or treating. Been wearing the same costume for years: Welding helmet, welding bib (splattered in red paint for effect), welding gloves, hatchet in hand. Won $100 in the costume contest at work this year.

Well that's why I bought it. Funny thing is my daughter found the hatchet outside of a school when she was about 8.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I hate Fiat and their stupid crap in American cars. Literally lost a day's worth of pay because of a stupid Dodge Dart. So I started a used car inspection on it yesterday and during the test drive a message would pop and say Park light malfunction, but only would happen intermittently. Pull the codes for it and started searching. So Alldata and our service library didn't tell me where the bulb location. Thinking I had to pull the front clip off the car, I told my service advisor and he told the salesman why and said go a head. Well, come to find out they decided to put access panels in the wheel wells to get to the lights. Pulled the side marker lights that were causing the issue and the previous owner had swapped out the incandescent for LED. A thing to note about the mass majority of FCA if the light bulb was incandescent, switching to LED causes the body control module to have a fit. It has to do with how much power is supposed to go and come from the bulb and if there is any variation that exceeds the standard, it throws a code.

So when I thought I had to pull the front clip off, I disconnected the battery and removed it from the vehicle. Well when I got everything back together, I plugged the scanner back in and the trouble code for the bulb was gone. Well 7 more codes came up. Well fast forward to pretty much end of my day and got it figured out. Turns out that if you pull a battery in a Fiat, it throws a hissy fit and you'll be banging your head thinking you'll have to replace the PCM. Nope had to have the electronic power steering system re-learn its parameters. It wouldn't have been so bad if I was still hourly, but nimrods in charged decided to put me on commission...working on vehicles is not as profitable as you may think it is, especially when you are commissioned...not worth it.

Cars today are getting way too complicated and computerized. Like my dads truck, it's a 2016 Silverado 2500hd. Two days before were going on vacation one of the computers decides to quit, and the new part wouldn't be in for 5 days. So we end up towing our 11,000 pound RV from Hernando county to big pine key (about 450 mi.) without an abs system. Another reason to get a warranty that'll cover the truck until the payment is finished.

Such warranties are stupid expensive as in several thousand dollars.

Yes, but they can pay for themselves. For example, my dads boss has a newer top of the line ford f250 turbo diesel. Although he bought an expensive truck, he was too cheap to get the extended warranty. Well, shortly after the warranty expires the turbo blows up, and the repair cost more than the extended warranty would have. And if we didn't get a 6 year 120,000 mile warranty for the Silverado, it would already be out of warranty since it has 77,000 miles on it, and it would be up to us to pay for a new computer and the rest of the payment.

So just a heads up Tapatalk users, uploading pictures to forums now are being limited on picture size, unless you pay for VIP membership. Looks like I'll be dumping the app soon.
