    Thanks Jake now the nightmares start all over.
    I thought some of you might "appreciate" that image!

    True, true . . . From 5-7 tonight I'm dressing up as a Bangor Firefighter and giving out candy to kids at the Mall. No, really . . . that's where I'll be . . . no Daisy Duke shorts though.

    LOL! My brother-in-law is selling a car on eBay. I'll bet he gets more for his car than you get for yours.

    (His hobby is entering contests. His license plate is "I WIN". This is the second car he's won! LOL!)

    (Sheesh! I'd bid on his car but I know I couldn't afford the gas for a 6.1 liter engine!)

    Wow - that's quite the car! My aunt was a contestholic too. When she died, I found a list of contests she had won dating back to the 20s. Everything from Diamond Rings, Furs and the like to blow up rafts, coupons and samples. No cars though.

    Some folks are just darn lucky.

    Well so far I've only been offered $100 (but it is the best reasonable or unreasonable offer I've received so far), so it's fair to say the Shaver car with the 6.1 Hemi might go for a tad more.

    That's not a bad idea . . . throw in my free Celica oil filter and I'm betting my phone will be ringing off the hook.

    True story . . . a number of years ago I foolishly thought that I wanted a dog. I have since come to the realization that I am not a "dog person" -- other people's dogs are great (i.e. Sweetie and Jock), but I am more of a "cat person." In any case to make a long story short I ended up with a dog that was half dalmatian and half hound dog . . . which meant that he would howl all night long and when he was off his run would run and run and run and never come to me on command.

    Eventually I had enough and decided to see if someone else would like Flash as a pet. In the Uncle Henrys ad I mentioned Flash and offered a free doghouse . . . it was nothing special, just something I had cobbled together with spare wood. One guy called me right up and after making sure I was serious about the dog house came by . . . last I saw of Flash was him sitting in the front of the pick-up with the old guy driving away with Flash's house in the back of the truck.

    The moral of the story: Well, I'm not sure there is a moral, except that I should never own a dog . . . or my friend Joe for that matter . . . but that's just because he's had three dogs and accidentally run over two and the other ended up having cancer and dying after being with them for about three weeks.
