You know the rain is bad when the distant hum of the sump pump going on and off keeps waking you, and then you have trouble going back to sleep thinking of what might happen if the electric goes. We've been talking about a power back up for that so this may be the kick in the you-know-what to get us to finally do it!
But it's Saturday, open to possibilities...so good morning!
Hi all. I was hoping someone out there might be able to shed some light on this sign. Obviously it's in bad shape, and I can't work out the words above and below 'lubrication'. It was found out in the bush near the town of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia. Any help is most appreciated (I've attached a picture, I'm not totally sure it's gonna work)

Whiting Oil was based in Clifton Forge, Va. These cans turn up from time to time locally and are quite scarce. You also see their 2 gallon cans once in a while. I've had a few items from Whiting including a couple of porcelain signs. Your can is in exceptional condition and I would say it'd sell for north of $150.
Afternoon all, Jim sorry about your friend. Not much happening here,been waiting on the rain all week and its really been hit and miss.
Been to the lawyers office today and yesterday,one persons true colors are showing so I'm going to probate the will something I hoped to not have to do. Funny how money or the lack of brings out the best in some. You know it only takes one bad apple to mess up a bushel if you don't weed it out.
Have a Great Weekend ,think I'm headed to the country to hide out.
