  1. Those of us that were around in 1959 know that Alaska (May) was admitted as a state before Hawaii (August.) We also know that Arizona was the 48th state admitted, but like Alaska and Hawaii, New Mexico (47) and Arizona were admitted within months of each other. Why do we know this? Because we went to school in the 1950s, when they actually educated us. I don't recall which states preceded Arizona and New Mexico, but I'll bet Oklahoma was admitted not too long before. That is the sum of my knowledge, except that I know that Texas was admitted to the Union in 1845 as the 28th state because, heck, we all know that. And, yes, i can still name the original thirteen states. Now, I need a nap.
  2. Good that you're doing well, amigo. Any day on a snow machine is a good day.

    Look into stronger stitching. Or duct tape.
  5. Good for your family, amigo.
  6. I have driven a few Model Ts and Model As. It takes a rocket scientists to start the danged things. I once had that operations manual to the F4-U Corsair. There were mabbe twenty steps that had to be completed in order, just right, before starting the engine. Twenty more to complete just to keep the thing in the air. Heck, compared to the F/A-18, you just flip the battery switch to on and go flying.
  7. Not just a cat, Rabbi Cat. Nor just Tasers, but Tasers deployed by TBO. Chuck Norris checks under his bed for Rabbi Cat at night and fears that TBO is lurking in his closet. Thank you and your colleagues for doing the job, amigo.
  8. If Rabbi Cat has to get involved, bart of tad will wish he was deathly ill. We'll just have TBO Tase him into immobility so that Rabbi Cat can nap on him.
  9. You take care of yourself, amigo. Don't make me come down there and put a boot up your ass if you get sick. I'm bringing TBO with me. Don't tempt us.
  10. The Navy has always had remarkable people doing remarkable things. As has the Army, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard. But, they didn't get the benefit of 6 of janice and me. Here's to you, soldiers, sailors, airmen and guardsmen.
  11. Get the venison out of the freezer.
  12. One aspect of British automobiles that always irked me, aside from the Lucas electrics, is that the British assume that everyone has a size 5 narrow foot. I have always found the pedals too close together in danged near every British car I ever drove.
  13. Remarks in another thread gt me to pondering, and we all know that that is nothing but trouble. What is the neatest automobile you have ever driven? Being in the lowest ranks of racing in my youth, I got to drive some pretty danged nice cars -- at least for a little while. I have never been a fan of Italian exotics and having driven Ferraris, Maseratis, Alphas and a bunch of Fiats, I still think that way. The only exception would be a Pantera. I liked that one. Thinking back, it's hard for me to pick just one drive out and say, That was the one! How about y'all?
  14. I raced with a feller that had the John Player version and drive his many times. You could hide a building behind them and you's never see it from the driver's seat. Two things said about the Europa: You don't get in it; you put it on. It goes around corners so fast it'll throw your radio out of tune. I agree. Like the Volvo P 1800, at first glance it looks sort of wrong, but the more you look at it, the more comely it gets.
