Hello Folks,

I have airstream pinyada photos. They are 2240 x 1488, I need to get them to 1600 x 1600, to get them on the forum. Any ideas? I do not know how to do that.

Jim we are praying for you during your time of recovery.

Blessings to all,

Curtis and Haley

Resize images

Hi Cottage,

You can download and install Image Resizer from Microsoft if you are using Windows XP. I find it's one of the easiest ways to resize images.

Good luck.

Open them in windows paint, hit CTRL-W and resize to 50% on height and width. Then save them.

Easy, and much smaller size.

Hi gang,

Here is a short update on my recovery status.

I am doing very well. Came home from the hospital Tuesday, the 3rd, after two weeks of intensive physical therapy. Now have to keep it up at home and outpatient. Everything seems to be healing well. Will see the ortho doctor on the 10th, when the healing cast will come off. Don't know what will happen next. You know how it is with doctors, they treat you like a mushroom. The doctor at rehab was not there when I checked out, and the nurse could not explain a no driving restriction. I don't understand. It has been a week since I have had even any pain medication except my normal Tylenol. Since I am a right foot braker, my left stub would just be along for the ride. Am looking forward to getting my new "foot."

Jim

Good news indeed!!!

Jim, Glad to hear that you are home. I don't know about you but I think hospitals and rehab centers are for sick people! Hope you can get your new foot soon and be back to your normal routine in no time. Best wishes, Ed

Good to hear from you, Jim! I'm not surprised that mushroom syndrome affects more of us than I thought.

We missed everyone

We really missed out. I got a message from Eric today and thought I'd post my reply. Chris, sorry for not responding to your email a while back. I intended to, just wasn't sure what our plans were and it slipped my mind. We really missed seeing everyone who have become old friends and meeting and torturing the newbies.

We had every intension of going to the rally (sounds like it was a great weekend and lots of fun). We hemmed and hawed about it for a while because we had planned our vacation for that week, ended up postponing it a week so we COULD go to the rally,blah blah blah. I'm trying to keep this short. We sold our Astrovan because it had 160,000 problem free miles pulling our Minuet and despite a gut feeling to get a different vehicle, decided that our GMC Jimmy would work for a tow vehicle for a while since it has the exact same engine and only 70,000 miles (is aggravation coming through my sentences? If not, add a snarl here and there) Not so. After wiring the hitch and replacing the A/C compressor ($700 repair) we picked it up from the shop, hitched up, drove 10 miles towing the Minuet when something went terribly wrong. (lots of snarls here). Turns out, the engine blew. It sat at the Mechanic shop for 7 weeks because a new engine (3,500 - $4,000) was completely out of the question on a '98 Jimmy. The mechanic was attempting to locate a decent used or rebuilt engine that we could actually afford. Anyway, I hate living with debt - and since we opted to use our car savings on a 2006 Scion XB just weeks before the blowup, I could not bring myself to purchase a new tow vehicle with a hefty pricetag to go along with it and even worse.....the dreaded car payment. I suggested trading the Scion in....family gasp - we love that thing, it's ultra cool! (imagine me: 37 year old woman with her two kids in a Scion.....yea.....so cool! ) Plan B: Maybe our next move was foolish, but heck, we do lots of foolish things, we purchased an Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser - 1991 with 80,000 miles. Did I mention this is my dream wheels? LOVE IT! It's in fabulous condition and every bit as cool as our Scion. This is the kind of vehicle that needs a name - so far our options are Blue boy, Deacon Blue, or LaFawnduh......please feel free to add suggestions. Did I mention I'm trying not to be longwinded? tehe. So here we are, debt free, but probably on the verge of a lot of broken down roadside stories and repair bills.......but no car payments! I like to think of breaking down as memories in the making - good clean family fun. I had lots of family fun as a kid.....we never had reliable cars. We haven't towed with the Custom Cruiser yet. Chime in any advice. We're driving (insert name of Oldsmobile here) for a few weeks before we decide to wire her to tow. Then It'll be time for the maiden voyage. So, I know I talk too much, but this is why we weren't at the rally. ..........any chance we can get everyone to do it again?

A very informative post, Tracy! We missed you and Ron, Will & Andy. I know how it is with engines -- can't just hypnotize them, eh? Sounds like it's been a bumpy road. Best wishes for Blue boy/Deacon Blue/LaFawnduh/What-evahUCallIt!

Call the Olds your Land Yacht.

I called mine the Battleship, but that was a 1980 Oldsmobeater.

The thing with the "B" Body cars is, keep them lubed and follow through on the oil changes and regular maint, and they can also last 200+k. Some did not have trans coolers and even though it's just a Minuet, when you load the family up, it puts extra work on the driveline in addition to the Minuet....so think about adding one if you don't have one. Me thinks those came with a 5.0L. My Oldsmobeater had a 5.0L and never burned a drop of oil in the 25 years we owned it...body wan't the greatest after 25 rust belt years, but you catch my drift!

Glad to hear from you Tracy!

Vacation Update

Thought I would just drop a quick note ... we have returned from our family reunion out in Grand Teton National Park. It was incredible. We camped in the Colter Bay campground on Jackson Lake for a week. The black bear wandered through the campground about 1/2 mile from our site. The trailer with new axles and disc brakes worked fantastic (put on 3,000 miles). I avoided the 10% grade going into Jackson, Wy from Idaho (Highway 22) but still saw many 6% to 8% grades. We had beautiful weather and saw tons of wildlife (relatives included!). The Tetons is definitely our favorite place to go!
