    Unfortunately, I don't think I will be able to make it. Besides "Gander Mountain" sounds like someplace from a movie I once saw. Not sure I want to be there with a bunch of guys. Especially, if they led the nation in charger sales.

    Evening all!

    OK - we are in trouble now. All the media are set up in a town about an hour west of Ft Worth - waiting for the "blizzard" (remember the prediction from yesterday which has not changed is for maybe an inch - and no accumulation). The evening news here has preempted most of their regular programming to have extended weather reports. As of 5 pm - they have spotted "one" really big wet snowflake (probably from a bird taking a relief break). Unfortunately it melted before they could get video of it. If it weren't for their 1st amendment rights - we could gather them all up and put them someplace where they cannot hurt anyone nor themselves.

    BTW - it will be 57 for a high tomorrow.

    Wow - they just showed this incredible video on the NBC nightly news of a Lufthansa jet that got caught in 100 mph crosswinds on landing and somehow the pilot pulled out and avoided a crash! It appeared he was hovering for a moment and he scraped a wing as he pulled out of the crosswind.

    Tom - the museum layout is really starting to shape up - nice work!

    Neat - it is raining ice now...:curse:

    Hope everyone is having a great day

    Congrats, N-Gauger balloon6

    Sleet and freezing rain around St. Louis, but got home in one piece. We're expecting 6 to 8 inches of snow, so probably we will get about 3 inches. Super Tuesday, but not here thank God! Things should be quiet until the election. :cry:

    Jeffrey, stay low is right and good luck. Nice pic with the light from behind like that, I like that alot.

    Thanks for the updated pics, Tom :thumb:

    Evening guys. Congrats Mike. Was quite warm today. Kids walking around and playing on swings with wife. Was about 80 and sunny. I understand we have plenty of rain heading our way.

    It is good to be off call. I have a few things to get done this week, but the weekend I hope to relax. Been trying to have dinner with some friends of ours, perhaps we will on Saturday.

    Been looking for a part for my car. The antenna has a little "cap" on top and I don't seem to find any referrence in the Mercedes parts sites. I even checked the Mercedes forums and no one seems to know. I will check with some local dealers and with a "Junk" dealer who has all high end cars in his place.

    Anyway, hope everyone has a great night.

    Marcie, stop up your ears. Mikey, congrats on the little "Toot".:thumb: We have a big Toots on the forum [Chuck]. :eek: Now Marcie, you can listen. Now back to Charlotte on Friday night or Sat. morning until Sunday afternoon. Man, plan changes every five minutes. wall1 That is what happens when Yanks are running the show. :curse: They never know what end is up. :rolleyes:

    So much pig poop on CTT that Bob K's bobcat will get stuck. Boss Hog and Big Pig are going at it. About time for the AXE to fall on Boss Hog. :eek::thumb: Sure is good to have some where to visit that is "clean" and fun. Later
