    I used to get paid to test those Zeus drives out of Ross. Would kick up mud in the middle of the harbor.

    Wonder how long it takes them to hit the THT Classifieds with 31hrs on a set because somebody introduces something else.
    Yeah, but do you consider a dog to be a filthy animal? I wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy but they're definitely dirty. But, a dog's got personality. Personality goes a long way.

    Then getting stranded in the worst possible place. Put lipstick on a pig...itís still a pig. Of course this is based on the fact that mercury outboards sucked ass in the 70s. Yup, I can hold a grudge.
    There was a time between the excitement of first light/legal and the first wave of ducks we tried to coax in that I looked to the heavens and talked to Tripp; I donít think God lets conversations from earth taint the wonder that His children are experiencing in Heaven, but just in case, I had my say.
