Not gonna happen!

And it is the perfect trailer.

Oh trust me, those of us that can't have gluten (or have any other food restrictions) are well aware of this. Thanks for pointing this out, once again.

However, it's way better than getting sick all the time. Would you knowingly eat food that makes you sick? I think not.

And, there's plenty of food out there without gluten (and other items that folks have an intolerance or allergies to) that taste very good.

If you know someone is deadly allergic to peanuts (or seafood or something else) do you adjust your menu accordingly? Or do you not invite them because you're unable to have any sympathy for their situation?

Even though you had the "laugh" emoticon in your post, you're basically saying that the only people worth your while to eat with are those that will eat whatever you offer to them. So, you rate people on what they'll eat and not for anything else. How tolerant you are - not!

If you have any of the symptoms listed in the following article, you might want to give up gluten as well. It does make a difference in how one lives one's life. Being gluten intolerant is not a joke. Trust me, I would love to be able to eat gluten. I would love to not check out a menu with minute detail and have detailed discussions with the wait staff/cook/manager/whomever at the few restaurants I go to (and knowing I still run a huge risk of getting sick). I would love to, but I can't.

New study links protein in wheat to the inflammation of chronic health conditions

Would you dump all over someone that can't have peanuts? How is gluten any different? Or anything else that a person can't have as they'll either die from it or get sick?

Those of us with food restrictions are well used to offering to bring our own food to someone's house when we're invited over for dinner. We'd rather do that than think someone doesn't want us there due to not being able to eat their food (although we're already well aware of that situation).

It's a poor analogy, Glenn. And I pretty much agree with Laura. Lactose and gluten are evil proteins.

Back to the 15 debate!

Yes....let's get back to the task of finding a gently used 15a for Pat.

Karen: bigger is better - that's the American way.

.
Google "desiccant wheat roundup" you will find articles pro and con for the use of roundup just before the harvest of wheat. You may not be gluten intolerant. We now use organic wheat without getting sick.

From reading the various Tacoma forums, the new 2016 & 2017 Tacomas are plagued with problems, Including the new 6 speed transmission. There are also reports of quality control issues. My neighbor brought home a new Tacoma a few weeks ago and the truck bed was put on kittywhomper. No thanks.... I will stick with my tried & true 2015.

Anyway I just purchased an ARE topper and new wheels for it. Nancy is complaining I buy more presents for the truck than for her. No way to respond to that!
