Although if I would get rid of the big Jon Boat thats hiding behind the trailers in the avatar, I could jack one more in there crossways. The building is 32 feet deep. As most know, we only had two for a little while in 2017. The New Holland TC40D Tractor sets next to the 21 right now. I am working on the other garage where it usually lives. That building had some derecho damage.
The Escape Garage escaped unscathed. As my son would say, Its all good.

Dave you could still have a collection. Are you not planning to buy Jack and Nancy's 17? Then when they sell the 5.0TA to move into a 23 then you could buy that one too

Hi Adrian
I’m getting a little too old to start more collections. I just got over the castironitis disease that left me with 6 Dutch ovens 10 skillets of many sizes and a couple bean pots. I do have a convenient feature in my will where I can enumerate stuff on a piece of
Notebook paper. So I don’t worry about a frying pan-demic when I’m gone.
I could sell you some nice coon traps if you are in need.

Was that also used by the Sheriff in "Smoky and the Bandit"?

I remember it vaguely. Here's a clip from Cool Hand Luke:



Now, how many hard boiled eggs can you eat?




"Countin' flowers on the wall. That don't bother me at all."

Back on topic I read today border closings set to be extended to Dec. 21.

I think it was something along the lines of "what we are dealing with heah is a complete lack of respect for the law!" Or something like that.

Canadian RV'ers using loophole to get south

https://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/border...g-in-1.5196426

Saw this story today: having the RV driven by a commercial company and flying to a US airport, then picking up the RV.

I am sure your health insurance company would love to deny you cover based on the fact that the boarder is closed...that is if you can even get into a hospital.
Buy some long johns, stay safe and stay home.

Hey Dave, do you have any coons for sale? I would like to talk one of them, a nice one (must be clean, somewhat fat), into sitting on top of my head, part time, just to keep me warm and snarl at Air Stream campers. Just for fun. Do you sell coons? Nice ones?

Can you train them not to poop on you, when you say?

Hi: sameo416... Here's a pic of a real reconstructed loophole!!! The bird waited till I went back to fetch my camera. Is he real? Alf
