Great news! Any news on what caused the seizures? Hope the road ahead is smooth and healthy for her. We will continue our prayers for her.

What looks like something wrapped around my arm is actually my leg holster. I am kneeling.

So good to hear from you Tina, and with such good news too! All the best! We're all still with you.

Cheers,

You didn't have a new rig show off thread? Ya know what they say - no pictures - didn't happen.
I only have 1 picture so far and that is of getting gas on my very first day of ownership! More to follow...Also, I've never posted a photo so I hope I got it right.

Whew am I glad that's sorted out! A GSD I can understand, but that holster did look like a critter.

I'm sorry you lost your canine partner, since she must have been a very important part of your life. Thank you both for your service.

Glad to have you on the rainbow with us. Us ol' fogies need you young whippersnappers to keep us lively! Have at it, girl!

Cheers!

In the last year, my dad lost his twin brother then my cousin, then we lost my grandfather, then my Great Dane died. After all of that-and 12 years of service in war zones-I know for sure that there is never a good reason to put off getting started. Who knows if I will live to retire or what kind of health I will be in by then? I'm hitting the road now and heading thataway...just stay off the sidewalks. I haven't driven my 36' house very much yet

It is incredible! Very smooth shift you can't even feel the shift from third gear on. 70 mph the engine is turning 1600 rpms. which it's rated at 31 mpg highway. I'm gettin 23 in town.

Looks very nice. Didn't see weights on Car dot com - will check it out on Jeep site later on. Seems to price well especially versus the upper prices Wranglers (Sahara etc) and little more than a Sport. If really trail worthy and suspect it is - looks like a very nice ride.

Dang, I thought you had some cute cuddly creature giving you a hug, not a darn gun sleeve. That goes to show you how easily the eyes can be deceived.

Sena spent the first six months living with me wrapped around my wrist and that's what your picture looked like to me. (remember iPad, small screen) I lovingly referred to her as my hairy wrist tumor.

It was when she decided that she didn't need to stay on me that the fun really began. She became this tiny brown tornado that could be destroying her 3rd item before I could grab the paper towels to clean up the first mess. Thankfully that stage only lasted 3.5 years. By age 4 she had started to calm down. Now at 16 she is quite the little lady -- sweet and gentle I hope you can join us at the GC@CL in April and meet her.

Her insurance has been cooperative so far. There are two options available to them - replace the car with new or, if possible to do it correctly, fix it and give me a check for the loss in value now that it will have a negative hit on the carfax report.

A PITA for sure, but it's just a car...
Go for a new one. Getting that side crush fixed will never be the same. As stated argue and talk about lawyer'ing up. A Jeep is nice, but I like my Lincoln MKX for the comforts and thunderous sterio system (THD)

Here is a small sampling.

Herb likes swishing his tale and Wayne likes it. ROFL

Dave wears a Kimono and threatens to take it off. ROFL

Jeff has a jeep fetish. ROLF (And some we are probably not aware of)

Barbs little girl looks like a monkey. And acts like one to.

Teffy likes boiled okra. Serioiusly now?

And so much more, Order now and get Steve's Dance Lessons half off! ROFLMAO
Welcome to the new comers, even if you are younger than my children by many years.

Doctor says she may go home tomorrow.

I'm sure it was all the prayers and well wishes from my fellow mutants that did it! Thanks again.

Now to get back to my regularly scheduled Birthday pampering and lounging.
Great news!

Neither door will budge.

I don't even really like Hondas much. We bought it to tow 4 down, and it has AWD, but it's not fun to drive. It doesn't have enough horses for starters, and the seats are hard as rocks. We definitely want to tow four down, and this was the best compromise we could come up with. 0% financing, and got a killer deal since I just bought a Honda Civic for my daughter last year when she rolled her Corolla.

Does anyone know if you can tow a Jaguar XF four down?! I may need a new car!
I'm sure you could this it, the question would be..would it be drivable when you got there?

Z guage, N gauge, and some pre-war and post war Lionel sets. Have up on live stream, the DW always said I couldn't boil water....

The gentleman who designed it lives in Australia and the think will be about 12 feet long when complete. John's wife is running the loco in the attached picture.

I have a couple of boxes of Brass from when we were into the smaller stuff. Keeping it because we can no longer recoup the money paid for them.
WOW, ... all I can say.
