BAP - you brought back lots of memories.

I feel that I am living the best years of my life. I think I am enjoying things more now than when I was young. When I was young I was always in a hurry to get to the next thing - whatever it was. Now I have the time and maturity to enjoy each of the things I accomplish. I appreciate things more now.

I had looked at a Brave 32W a few months ago. I forget the year, maybe 2002 or 2004. It was just more money then I was ready to spend. My only concern with it was for Florida I think it needed a larger air conditioner. I really really liked the counter space provided by the L shaped kitchen.

First of all, Happy Birthday BAP! May you have many more!! Wow, you did bring back a lot of things that I forgot about! And , Yes, I remember them all!
Lynne, nice avatar!
And , Yes, the coffee is tasting very good this morning!
Terry, how are you going to shovel snow on crutches? Crap, 15"! Hope it is not windy!
Bap, I remember, helping my mom learn to drive her 1950 dodge, 3 on the tree! I had to back it out of the garage for her, and pull it back in, I was like 10 years old? Good memories! And we had the party line too! You should have got a video of the lay-ups?!
Rail!

Good Morning All, Rail, I agree, Lynne nice Avitar! Oh the three on a tree, I had a young Tech working for me in the auto shop, sent him out to bring in a car for inspection.........few minutes later he came back in and said I don't know how to get it in gear . guess they didn't teach that in auto shop. Have a great day all.

Haven't you heard? Manual transmission is the best theft deterrent device! I live in Nebraska and In Omaha last year there were 2 or 3 cars stolen that didnt make it a block away. They didnt know how to drive a stick! I learned on a 3 on the tree. Dad wouldent let me drive anything else until I got that down. My brother still has one. His daily driver.

Good Morning Everyone.
Pleasant day here. Janet is going to a Red Hat convention. I am going golfing. Coffee tastes great.

I am going to have to place myself firmly in the 3 on the tree group. That is what I learned on. At least on the road. First vehicle I got to drive was a W6.

Have a great day.

Good Morning everyone,
Had a wonderful cruise, good time and good weather, but glad to be home.
Happy belated Birthday bap.
Lynne,
I am so happy for you, the MH looks great, you might want to go look in the Winnebago group section for any questions about the unit.
Huntnski and bap,
your trailers both look wonderful, nice job to both of you.
Welcome to the newbes on this thread.
Trying to get caught up from being gone for week, catch you all later.
Frank

Bap, that was Frank that went on the cruse, He was the lucky one! Hehehehe! We are getting read for a trip to Kuaula Lampur for 5 days! Should be fun! One of the benefits of living in Asia! So many things to see and the food,, ohhhhhhh!
I hope everything comes out OK with your family, eye surgery is always scary?
And the coffee is tasting very good today!!
And I did not even know that humor thread was there, and read the "you know your old if" one all the way thru last night! Funny stuff! Thanks H&S, for bringing it to our attention!
Stay warm everyone, 20's in Florida Crap!
Rail!
