Gasket painted, Van Roof Too. Firearms Refresher Course

Ray couldn't get here until after 10.00 AM so I started at 9.00 and climbed up and down the ladder getting each side of the top of the gasket taped and papered. When Ray got here, he painted it black. That covered up all the splotches of gray paint that the PO had splattered on it. Now it looks sharp.
As we had all that paper already taped up, and Ray didn't have to pick up Shay until nearly 2.00 PM, we decided to do the minivan roof. We had to sand and prime some bad spots on the roof when I got the van, but now we would finish it. He got up there and sanded the whole roof, then I put down the base tape. We peeled the sheets of taped paper off the Mirage
and stuck them onto the tape on the van. Ray got about three coats of
white auto primer on it, and then about three coats of white paint. I wanted it white to reflect the hot TX summer sun. I see several brands of new cars, dark color cars, running around with white roofs, so I am not alone.

A friend sent me this: "" FIREARMS REFRESHER COURSE:
1. "Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not." ~Thomas Jefferson
2. Those who trade liberty for security have neither. ~John Adams 3. Free men do not ask permission to bear arms.
4. An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.
5. Only a government that is afraid of its citizens tries to control them.
6. Gun control is not about guns; it's about control.
7. You only have the rights you are willing to fight for.
8. Know guns, know peace, know safety. No guns, no peace, no safety.
9. You don't shoot to kill; you shoot to stay alive.
10. Assault is a behavior, not a device.
11. 64,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday.
12. The United States Constitution (c) 1791. All Rights Reserved.
13. The Second Amendment is in place in case the politicians ignore the others.
14. What part of 'shall not be infringed' do you NOT understand?
15. Guns have only two enemies; rust and politicians.
16. When you remove the people's right to bear arms, you create slaves.
17. The American Revolution would never have happened with gun control. ""
I wrote back and showed him that we were ready:

That was it for today.
