  1. ​Then you would like Spekpannenkoek
  2. Hmmm. I may or may not see you.
  3. Sorry, can't help with your question. I had a great uncle that was an avid gardner and grew his apple trees along waist high cables in anticipation of his senior years when ladders would be iffy. I always thought it was cool and a great example of forward planning.
  4. ​I liked my rotary phone and only having to dial the last 5 numbers. Tha's why!
  5. ​Now settle down plank master. To tell you the truth, I have already forgotten what the old format looked like. This is cool and the work is appreciated by most if not all. Don't make me take down my wall poster of you and Jens!
  6. Oh, I dimmed my screen a notch and that made the appearance better for me.
  7. ​Hey.. Your avatar is bigger! See, the new format worked!
  8. ​Sorry Cheese, SW haz pancakes. He just bought my loyalty!
  9. ​I am a little worried too but I know both are reasonable men and will put this little clash behind them. Even though onbike wears pleated skirts, his habit of tossing telephone poles for fun places him firmly in the manly column. The skirt just keeps him in touch with his feminine side.
  10. ​He should be shot but I am merciful and unwilling to pull the trigger. Unless i scuff a knuckle working on this frozen truck. Then I will hunt him down.
  11. OK, you old guys are being too cranky about forum change. I am going out in the cold to get these brakes done. After one more cup of coffee.. and make sure your disposition is sunny and warm when I get back!
  12. A brake change on the FJ. Unfortunately, the guy who built my house made the garage too narrow to do this in the garage so out on the ice covered driveway it is.
  13. That is cool and I have never noticed it. Interesting photo!

  15. As a boss of mine once said, "you will have plenty of time to rest when you are dead".
  16. But George Burns, Danny Kaye, Bob Hope?
  17. A friend and I were discussing a fly by we did during Expo 86. It was called Flight into History and had everything from early by planes to Concorde.
