    The only drawback is the fact that I take off, & put back on more clothing in one night than the average stripper...

    Most think the linguistic profile of the area was a bit over done, but we all dispose of at least one person per year using a wood chipper...

    So that part was pretty accurate...

    I like the cold better than I used to.I just don't like wearing 50# of clothes!
    Shorts,Teva's and T-shirt for me
    I keep the house very warm, so all the clothes have to come off when I get inside

    Leave it BETTER than you found it!

    Now that's cold baby!

    This post could go here or in the 3 mystery hoses thread....

    OK, (insert Mark's 2 custom frozen icons here)



    DONE !...


    Good plan Dub, to wait a bit before messing with the bonnet! Growing up in Pittsburgh, one month in my last semester of college it was in the - teens for about 3 weeks. Had a '77 Celica, hood opened from the windshield side, & had to shoot ether into the carb each morning to get it started to get to college. One morning during "finals week" doing that when it was like -19, one of the hood hinges just broke off...frozen metal just sheared off...so just closed it up, drove on as I had to take those finals. Luckily the hood closed the way it did so it couldn't fly up while driving. Brrrrrr!

    Another morning that week, the door wouldn't latch after I got in, the latchy thing was frozen and wouldn't engage. Had to crank the heat to high, drive around a parking lot hanging onto the door handle until the cabin warmed the door enough to latch....Brrrrrr!...

    OK, definitely confirmed my decision to move to Calif after graduation!

    Remember that life is not measured in the breaths you take, but rather in the moments that take your breath away.

    L0L...I went back to his original post & hit the "quote" button, then copied the siq (smilies in question) & pasted them into your message...

    Since I have a drop or two of moderation juice in my little slice of VX-I, I can do a bit of editing in other peoples posts.........

    Glad I hadn't started complaining about our 20 deg weather for the past week.

    I spent 6 1/2 weeks at Ft Greely a few years back - I can relate to what you're livin through now.

    Oh lord, I've created a monster by bringing up the other custom icons issue.....take a look at you-know-who's sig line...wow, must not be a lot to monitor in Fargo ...in the middle of the night....when it's like -15 degrees...not until that dude running laps in the parking lot in the morning......

    Very creative brother Dub!! A dancin' Chewbaca, AND a dancin' pirate nanner with a sword (or maybe that's Zorro nanner).....Rock on, Dude!

    Oh, I missed the light up eyes on the skull...wow, that's impressive!
