    i've never owned a ar15 or had a desire to own one

    but with people pulling people out of cars and beating them burning down homes and businesses

    i've been thinking about it

    i've heard good things about these guys

    i looked around and asked questions but didn't buy nothing

    so i moved on

    i hooked the buggy up to it. Dude asked me if he needed to take it out of park :lol3

    i got him to get in and put it in reverse rzr pulled it put was spinning and i didn't wanta burn up my belt

    so i unhooked it and got the old dodge and it came right out

    dude was happy happy happy :D


    so after some more joking around he went on his way

    robin and me ran tru the shower and rode to town to do some mattress shopping

    anybody got any suggestions, we've made the wrong picks on the last 2

    Picking a mattress is tough.

    I had a Stearns and Foster years ago and it was so comfortable that I looked forward to a night of sleep in it.

    Couple years ago I got another Stearns and Foster set and it isn't the same.

    Mark; I have a 3/4 size bed that I have had since I was 16 (68 now). Impossible to get an off the shelf mattress. Googled mattress manufacturers in my area. Had a custom made one built for $800. Best money I have spent in a long time.
