    Come watch me try to figure out all the switches and stuff on the SMV. Took me two days to figure out how to open the door. Maybe by Saturday I'll find where the gas goes into the tank.

    stay safe.

    I wish I could be there to see where the gun rack goes

    Actually, I think you'll enjoy it Skid. Dad had decided to buy one and I looked at them. He died before he ordered it though. Makes it really convenient to just scoot in and go.

    I'm afraid I'm going to miss this weekend too. I have to go to West Virginia today to do a commercial, then get back to plant another bean field.

    I also have to feed the birds Skid Enjoy breakfast!

    Gun racks, hidden storage for ammo, bug-out equipment and soccer cleats..

    Then add rapid deployment capacity of 4 wheel ATV and he's got nice special purpose vehicle(s). Going to be good enough to make Speedy jealous.

    What is that strange thing??? The vehicle, not the driver.

    I have owned a number of "utility" vehicles over the years including my Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo which is now classified as a SUV. I may have to show up just to see what an SMV (Slow Moving Varmint) is.

    We had two extra for breakfast this morning. Sig29something (sorry, there are times I can't remember my own name) and his mom. Great company, although I was at the far end of the tables and did not get a chance to talk to them much while indoors. The after-meal discussion cured some of that.

    ANN showed up in long pants, but late. He shared some of the papework he has received from RPD and it looks like they have done their usual job of making a fine mess of things. Our waitperson nearly lost her hand/head/life when she made a grab for ANN's paperwork while trying to convince him to move to a smaller table. About four sets of hands, as well as voices, stopped her in her tracks. The manager (darn, can't recall her name now either!) came by (we asked for her) and the situation was explained. She was more than understanding and fixed things by pushing the table where ANN was sitting up against our table and making sure the waitperson understood who had done that. She joined us later on while we were outside discussing what we had discussed while inside. A great addition to the after party!

    Sig29something was not aware of the OC dinner next Tuesday but said he would try to attend and bring his girlfriend. Apparently we did not completely frighten him off. He seems like a good guy and has a good sense of humor. Hopefully he finds The 316 Things Skippy Is Not Allowed To Do http://skippyslist.com/ (it's stickied at te bottom folks!) before Tuesday's dinner.

    stay safe.

    I thought that Sig**, user name was Sig40, but nothing close on the roster, at least not in VA. Oh well, so much for my tone and pitch perfect hearing.

    The manger's name is Tracy and she is a jewel.
