I'm not sure Tom. All I know is that he is about 7 times faster than me. It was fun trying to keep up!

Hey DBs, we're trying to come up with a date for a campout next year and nothing really works until Memorial Day weekend. Just trying to get a feel from you guys that would normally make if being on a holiday weekend would be a deal breaker for ya.

Thought I was dead!

So I'm still trying to help my stepson move to a new shop. We dropped all the old lifts and I was trying to clean out the old wiring inside the breaker box.

One of the ground wires was tangled up and I was trying to fish it through all the other wires when it slipped out of my pliers, sprung back and hit one of the hot legs.

All I could see was white. I think it was loud too but I don't know, I was too confused and still blinded by the white flash....oh yeah I could feel the heat on my face too. My stepson looked real concerned and was asking me if I was ok.

After a minute or two I could finally see again and I said I was fine, a little shook up but fine.

That's NOT when I thought I was dead!!!

Five minutes later he threw a firecracker right behind me. I think my heart stopped, I could feel the blood rush out of my head and I jumped three feet in the air....man I thought I was dead!

I only helped raise him but I think I did my part just right. I was never so proud.

I think I'm still shaking

Hack if I could write a poem I would be writing one right now.

Sorry for the late notice, but the RC flying club I belong to is having a Toys-For -Tots drive Sunday and I though a few of you fine upstanding gents might be interested in donating.

December 2, from 9:00am until 3:00pm. Kent County Aero modelers (650 Mahan Corner rd near Sandtown), is having a Toy Drive to benefit the Marine Corp Toys for Tots campaign.

Below are the items being accepted:
• New unwrapped toys with a value of $10.00 or more
• Money

It has been brought to our attention by the Marine Corp Reserve that they receive a lot of donations of toys for younger children, but not a lot for the 9 to 14 year age group. So please keep that in mind when making your purchases.
