B-C , glad your job went well I didn’t think you would have much of a problem. Those lifts can be aggravating, do you have any weight on lift arms ? I agree 100% about SBS I have not watched a pro game since they started the kneel. I love my country and am very thankful for the many men and women that have given their life for my freedom.Two older brothers that fought in Vietnam and many other family members who served they have all my respect.
I don't have much weight on the lift, I put my 200 plus pounds on it but I have not had the chance to hook up anything to it yet. My daylight ran out before my to do list.
Be sure to thank your 2 brothers and other family members for their service to our Country! There are many of us out here that still hold them in high esteem! I was a little too young Vietnam and we were very fortunate, all of my family who served came home in one piece. However we lived on a short dirt road with only six families on it and in small town America back in those days you knew all of your neighbors.
The family at the other end of our little road lost their oldest (and I think) their most promising son in nam after being drafted. I remember as kid that it took them so long to get him home that they had him sealed under a thick sheet of glass in the coffin so he would not smell. It is a same that some of these kneeling snow flakes didn't get to experience something like that they would have a different attitude about the freedom that we are easily throwing away.
When I travel to the county seat about 20 miles away I always go by the nam memorial to see his name. As a kid I didn't really realize the loss that family suffered until I got older and could better understand the loss of a sibling. And that is not to mention the loss the parents felt.
Anyway enjoy the freedom guys like him gave his life to preserve for us.
