Reminds me of a story Les.

A guy was standing in a German prisoner of war camp with his right arm pointed straight up and his left pointed straight to the side. He just stood there saying tic tic tic and not doing anything else but say tic tic tic.

Finally a guard came over and shouted at him, "Vee haff vays to make you talk!"

It just can't die!! I left it for a bit and it is still going. So now I know it is not me that was keeping it going! Sheesh, just when I thought I was important!

On another note it has been a good day! We got to meet Dogpatch ( Les and Bonnie) today and share some time! Very enjoyable fun couple. We hope to meet up again soon.

A BIG Ditto on that Dennis. Although it was a brief "feeding of the minds" over dinner, we had some good laughs, put faces to the names we've conversed with for several years and had an enjoyable visit. Looking forward to maybe seeing you in our neck of the woods as well at some point!

I use the brakes on my toad to stop the coach!! They are cheaper to replace than the coach brakes. It also keeps you more alert and your blood pressure up. It is a little noisier on the right side of the coach though.

I think my airplane is faster without the drag of flaps.... But I will just keep flapping my gums away anyway...

That stops some things, but starts others... But even this will not kill it... What is 183 posts compared to 8,523 posts on such an important topic as this one...

LOL

I think your toad is too big to tow anyway... There must be a law against that... Your toad = .0000011% of combined weight of 27,000 lb.

Mine is a 2008 cane TOAD and I still see no reason for it to have brakes...
