I post this photo of my grandpa, Elston Zaruba, every year on Veterans Day. He served in WW2 as a flight instructor and trained U.S. and British pilots on aircraft recognition. After the war he had an airplane equipped with snow ski landing gear. He would hunt fox and coyotes from his plane then land in the field and pick them up. Badassary! Here is a picture of him in the service surrounded by his friends (and some girls), with a bottle of whiskey, a bottle beer, and a fishing pole, indoors. I wish I coulda been there. My dad and uncle, myself and many other men in my family have served our country, but this guy is my favorite. Thank you to everyone that has done their part. Happy Veterans Day.

I bought this record from Matt at Red Rooster Records a few years ago upon his suggestion. I liked the album art and he told me a buddy of his had come and sold his whole collection, this being one of them. Somehow this record never got into the rotation until tonight. I think it might earn itself a spot on "the regulars" shelf. #charmingsnakes#bangers#rocknrolldinner
Takin it all the way back to last Saturday. Stoned on love, friends and coors lights, just chillin in the back row of a general admission Beck concert eating faces. (We had commandeered someone's VIP box earlier, but decided they were boring) #omaha#beck#imustbeinthefrontrow#idowhatiwant
I know I said I wasn't going to post another picture until it was completed, but I guess I lied. Here she is as it sits today. Test fit the new tires with no issues. Primer done and sanded. Heading off for underbody coating, bed and cab getting lined as well then floor bed will be finished with a wood look vinyl (to save weight). After that she goes to paint. Then put it all back together. A little over a year in, hoping to finish in 6 months or so. This has been a true "labor of love". #internationalscout#scout800#internationalharvester#binder#mickeythompson#deegan38#65scout#project
