  1. So flying United is no longer a thing... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. When I was growing up the Virginia side was considered the more desirable one. However, since then the Tennessee side is where most positive things have happened. Maybe the Bristol International Speedway played a big part, but I’ve always thought the absence of personal income tax on earnings in Tennessee played a part. The defunct Bristol Mall on the Virginia side is apparently now on the road to being redeveloped as a family resort, entertainment, and casino complex. At least I believe that Virginia has approved this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I’ve thought the Pontiac Fiero could have been more than General Motors made of it. Heard, though, that draining and refilling the cooling system was a real pain. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. That Chevy/GMC in-line OHV six was a tough cookie. Raw or hot rodded gave similarly tuned flathead V-8s a run for the money. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. In the outdoor world, female cats and dogs usually will mate with any available male while in heat. This increases genetic variety in each litter. A British study of barn cats over a couple seasons, filmed by BBC, showed that the involved males each considered each litter to be his and was protective of the mother and kittens. At the same time, mothers would take turns babysitting while other mothers went hunting or just took breaks. From personal observation, when we had one intact female and one intact male, he was as caring and protective of the kittens as she was. We allowed them to have three litters, so their behavior did not seem to be a one time fluke. We had a female German Shepherd during this time. Some of the kittens were wandering close to her. Mama cat seemed indifferent. Papa cat levitated across the family room and got all over the dog. She wanted out RIGHT NOW and never was comfortable again around that male cat. Yes, all the kittens were placed in homes we believed would be loving and caring. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. My girl Zephyr likes to lick the tip of my nose. It tends toward raw rather quickly. My boy Phoenix likes to lick my beard and mustache. For reasons which escape me, this makes the roof of my mouth tingle. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. This has been standing by US41a in Nolensville TN with essentially this appearance for a long time. Has housed a number of businesses, none particularly long term. It may have survived long enough to now have a new lease on life, as the area beside and behind it appears ready to become a strip mall while leaving this in place. I think it was originally a Pure gasoline station based on the architecture. It does not appear to have ever had bays as part of the structure. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. The most common variation of color blindness is inability to distinguish red from green. My step father in law had this affliction. He was OK when the traffic lights were all red on top and green on bottom. Some communities, usually small towns, scrimped on the fixtures. Theirs used one bulb at top and one at bottom. When top was red one direction (say north/south) top was green the other direction. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Alternately, carry a deck of poker cards and start a game of solitaire. Someone will show up to tell you to play the red ten on the black jack. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Still miss his sense of humor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Is the Ranger a compact truck as in days of yore, or has it grown in size as well as price? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Yes... Orange and four door and a reasonable bed for hauling stuff. Probably can parallel park it in any two consecutive places and vertical park in any two pull through places. For me to successfully parallel park any more requires a very short vehicle or a very long space. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Isn’t orange... Well, now... Seriously, is the truck so named because it has a V-10 engine? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. A friend had one of the Cushman scooters also pictured on the page, the slightly larger 4 horse model. Much to my annoyance he could gradually out run me on the highway. Rather than hand operated clutch and transmission gears, the Cushman had a centrifugal clutch and variable pitch pulley system which later became common on go karts. So when the engine was wide open the pulleys kept improving the ratio. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
