    As I have told you before I am impressed by your desire to set your goals extremely high and you often exceed your own expectations. As with any business, there are those who do average, those who fail, and those who far exceed the pack. Anyone who has followed you for a reasonable length of time knows you are not a follower, but someone who other successful people need to emulate to make themselves better. I was parked for 3 months this year and then 2 weeks of scheduled vacation. Originally I had planned to tell you my 2021 numbers would catch you. Then I remembered that my pool I have discussed with you will be done come warm weather so I may not show you any numbers next year. I may show you a picture or two sitting by the pool while the truck sits also. That is my end game anyway to work less and sometimes make more. I know my expenses are high, but I buy things for the business. F0E9DD06-20F1-4E57-A8DD-462D7F73CAC3.png

    Blacky yum yum on the go go juice!

    The N14 in the T2000 was a lifetime 7.1.

    It’s true, the hood costs you 1mpg.

    Well said sir. Don't forget waking up in ice cold weather parked 3/4 of a mile from the nearest bathroom with a disease called I.B.S. Sometimes your body is the boss and if going in your pants or going in a bucket are your only two choices, I'd take a bucket any day of the week. Some of these disgusting people leave feces smeared all over the public toilets as well. I'll take my own germs over other people's germs any day.

    I’ve had IBS for 50 years. Didn’t know what I had until 15 years ago when my niece became a sales rep for a medication for it.

    The Side Affects of me thinking I Look Dam Sexier Than I Already pictured of myself created much larger social issues than I was willing to deal with.

    Ha! Probably a partial fill up I toggled as a full, or vice versa.
