And I only had one lesson

Just moved to Clearwater Beach, Florida..!!!

Well, I did it. I'm here on the western coast of Florida (Clearwater/Tampa area). I moved here two weeks ago, from N.c, where I only lived since September 2007. It's nice here, even in the rainy season. Any other members out this way..? Now, I have to get myself a hole in the water, to throw money into, and I'll be an official "Local". I haven't been on here in so long, and have made a lot of drastic changes in my life, in the last six months alone. I've had some major heartships, and a few successes. Not major successes though, and they often are far outweighed by the heartships. Well, no real point to this thread. Just thought I'd say hello to everyone, and announce my new location, etc. Everyone have a nice day, and thanks for the thread check.

Nick

You're a tough guy to keep track of, practically need a score card.

Still a G-Man or back in the private sector again? I've never been to the west coast of FL, really got to get down that way sometime.

Welcome to Florida.
With the price of gas, and the economy the way it is, you should be able to buy a pretty good sized hole to throw money into.

Hey Nick,
Welcome back! I grew up in the Clearwater area most of my life. I wish I didn't leave. That whole area is booming now. If you like seafood, go to Shells, they have the best clam chowder.

Yes, working for O.S.H.A. currently. Still sort of in "Training" status however, so it isn't quite full time yet. Between the schooling, and the work my schedule is pretty busy most of the time but I do get some time to enjoy myself here. Trying to meet new people, been doing ok with it so far. In fact, I just met a cute, and really sweet girl at the dog park when I took Josie there to play. She has a Golden Retriever, and they played while Stephanie and I talked. Have plans to meet her there tomorrow, so wish me luck. Thanks.

Nick

The car is doing really well actually. Last week I finally put in a pair of Flex-Discs, and new hardware. I bought my parts from Jon Hodgeman, and was very pleased with the parts, and the price as well as the delivery quickness. I had them in two days, and they were very easy to install. I pulled the car up onto four ramps, and did it on my back in my garage, in a few short hours. Next I'm attacking a sunroof "Binding" issue, the car has all of a sudden developed.. Thanks.

Nick
