I swear every time I look at the "Varnishing Wooden Spokes" thread title, I read "Vanishing Wooden Spokes".

And every time I see "My Wonderful Wife", I read it as "My Wonderful Life". Maybe it's time for a Jimmy Stewart fix.

Hal, I also couldn't figure out what "vanishing" spokes were.

Every time I hear a bell ring, an angel gets his wings.

This time of year every time i hear a bell ring,it's time to get a dollar out for the Salvation Army Kettle!!! I would much rather take a whipping than walk by a Kettle without giving!! Bud in Wheeler.

Bud, Of course, you do sort of resemble that jolly old elf, too.

I also saw "Vanishing" spokes. I was wondering if it might be some odd accessory.

That is so funny. I also read that several times as "vanishing spokes" I thought WHAT?

I'm removing varnish from a set of early wheels that are on my car. Three down, and one to go. The guy who varnished them would kill me if he knew what I'm doing. To me, varnished wheels on an early T just don't look right. Sorry Keith!

You all crack me up. I was very careful to proof read my original "Varnishing Wooden Spokes" posting. When I saw this thread and realized you saw "vanishing" instead of "varnishing," I broke into a mild sweat and immediately went back to see how that error slipped past my proof reading.

Now, all I see is vanishing spokes, too. You've all corrupted my vision. I guess we've spent too much time on this forum and need to get out and do some work on our cars.

Nope, nothing wrong with your post at all. Just my reading skills.

I hear ringing all the time!
It must mean I'm getting closer!

I'm with you Fred I've heard ringing since I retired (USN). Oh well 2 lives down working on third six more to go, I am so far behind, so I think I will sit back and have another cup of Coco.
