    Oh and here's a sad side note, since I am in such a story tellin mood:

    My dad calls me this morning when I was on my way up to meet with my stranded wife.
    My mom and dad have 4 cats now and they live out in the country....they have always had a handful of cats at one time or another. Their one big brown tabby cat is named Kramer. He weighs about 18 pounds and is nothing but an all around nice, fat, lap cat.
    Well last night, my mom comes running into the living room where my dad was watching TV. She was screaming at my dad for a flashlight and they go out in the backyard to see this huge stray dog attacking and shaking the shit out of Kramer!!! They tried to hit the dog and kick it but couldn't get close enough, the dog kept avoiding them and going back for the cat. As fast as it started, it was over and Kramers back legs were sticking straight out and he was crawling around with his front legs only, barely able to breathe and died a few minutes later!!! WTF?!?!?!?!? :cry

    Not a drop of blood, simply broke it's spine. Comes up on the porch and drops it at my feet looking for a reward! :lol3

    That looks more groundhog-like. We used to have a Husky that would run loose for the day and usually brought back a groundhog friend with him.....more like a Weekend at Bernies friend. :D

    It wasn't full grown and with the tail it was hard to tell as Butch brought it up on the porch. He must have been playing with it for a while because he was panting real hard when he came in. Since then he's cooled down and acting like the proudest gaurd dog around.:lol2

    Yeah, notice I didn't list that.. Goonie scares me in that big black omminous looking hat he wears... I mean... oooohhhh:eek1



    So how old is the wife's jetta that it went to the dealer?
    If ya need some VW help lemme know. 'Course as I now get outa bed at the crack of like 3pm, don't lemme know too early. :deal



    Nah, just a white-collar weazel from a blue collar background. I got real lucky and had a kick ass job that was challenging and interesting for the first 7 years or so. Installing/maintaing the most complex computers on the planet. They were kind enough to had me a golden anvil instead of a golden parachute like executives get though.

    but the REAL secret is that whole, no wife, no Kids thing see... :lol3
    Lotsa $ around when ya don't have those.

    Well, about 2 months ago the coil and ignition wire went bad and they replaced that and did some kind of ghetto fix with an external wire from the coil to something....it was mostly snaps and pops to me....I hate VW's.......it didn't make much sense, so hopefully that is messed up again and they fix it for free......or more than likely, they make up a new problem with an expensive fix. :pep

    Sure it wasn't a coyote? The in-laws right down the street have had a hell of a time keeping any barn cats for the last two years.

    With as many ferrol cats as we have out here I almost wish the cyotes would get some of them. Most are diseased and sickly looking. But instead a few days ago I walk out back to see two of them at the fence with Butch nosing eachother. They sat there and let me aproach as I came to the fence to get Butch away. Got about 30ft from them before they ran.:uhoh Now I have a loaded SKS by the door because I have heard they'll play nice to tame dogs in order to lead them off and attack them as a group.:patch
    Fortionatly neither Butch or Maggie have taken to jumping the fence. Butch could defend himself but Maggie is a pussy and would be an easy kill.:cry

    Damn you, DD! My fucking brain is melting trying to recall where I've seen that... and the SR13 sign is just taunting me, making it seem easy...

    According to the rules of the original Photo Tag thread, you've got to ride there, take the photo, and post it here. You then get to post the next photo that has to be 'tagged'. If you happen to have the photo in your library I suppose that's allowed.

    Bingo! :thumb

    You can also ask for hints but if you know where it is you shouldn't disclose the location.

    Being the detective that I am, I reverse checked the phone number showing on the sign using all available Ohio area codes, and one location makes sense.

    One question for the Double Douche :D , though, are ya sure it is still there? That area is pretty - um - transitional from a real estate standpoint, and something there in '05 might not be there in '07, savvy?

    :dunno

    Feck, maybe I'll just ride up today.
