Heath is probably mad because you sucked down all the coffee in the county! How much to the cat converters bring anyway?

Yeah there are lots of laws in place now so it makes it harder for us who do it legally. IN NC you cannot sell a cat unless you are a garage, dealership, or salvage yard unless you sell the entire car with it. There are some ways to circumvent this though , but the buyer has to trust that you are not stealing them. My guy told me that about a year ago a guy came in with about 30 or so cats and most of them were still warm where they were cut off cars in a parking lot. He told the guy to beat it.

I get paperwork on everything that goes on my truck. If I buy a tractor for myself I get scrap paperwork on it just in case I get pulled over by a cop who knows I haul scrap. If I don't have paper I loose my truck, trailer, load and gain a lovely pair of bracelets. I have seen more than one guy leave a scrap yard in the back of a patrol car.

About 2 years ago a detective friend of mine called me and told me he had a warrant with my name on it and asked if I had bought any AC units. I told him he knew I didn't buy ACs and he said he had to ask because they thief said they sold them to a scrap yard in my town. I am the only one listed in the phone book, but I am not a yard, I am a seller. I went down to the only yard in town and got the number for him. Sure enough they had purchased 42 AC units ( in pieces) that had been stolen out of one subdivision in one night. They were closed down for a good while all because the seller did not have the proper paperwork when he sold them.

AC units.....I do some work for a small business that has been hit TWICE in the last 18 months. They lost 3 of 4 units about 18 months ago, then lost the SAME three about 9 months later. The fourth one was the oldest of the lot to begin with, and the thieves won't touch it. THAT one recently fried the wiring at the compressor and blew the capacitor, so I fixed that. Owner asked me what he had to do to get that one stolen LOL.

Tell him next time they are stolen to go out there and cart that one off LOL.

I k now of a doctors office that had their units stolen while they were in the office. Units were on the back side of the building where they couldn't be seen and the thieves evidently took everything apart while they were running then but the condensers loose and ran with them. Gutsy fro sure.

Today nothing of importance got accomplished. I have sat here at my desk and watched it rain.

Finally got hungry and went prowling into the kitchen – Steph was gone so she didn't slap me. Looked around and my imagination got to going wild and before long I was in the midst of something delicious.

I started with a dozen eggs scrambled in a bowl then went prowling through the refrigerator. Since we going out of town all leftovers must go. So I found: mashed potatoes, ham, roast beef, pepperoni, livermush, onions, sweet peppers, Colby cheese, Swiss cheese, provolone cheese, garlic, Bone Sucking Mustard, paprika, salt, oregano, parsley, basil, Franks Red Hot Sauce, and probably a few other things I forgot. Dumped it all in the bowl and stirred well. Poured the mix into a large non stick pan and slipped it in the oven for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.

What came out was a wonderful, delicious, mouth watering something or another. I have no idea what to call it, but don't let me catch you reaching over to my plate.

Frittata is really good after a night out imbibing spirits and hops and such.

William, yours looks and sounds delicious. :thumbs:
