    Nice breakfast served with a spicy story or two from Bob. Thanks again Bob!

    From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be
    found in all corners of the earth."

    Then he made the earth round... and He laughed and laughed and laughed!

    I'm in Virginia visiting my daughter and yesterday I went to the USMC museum on I95 at Quantico Va. Amazing place, spent 4 hrs there and only made it to the Korean war before it closed. I need to go back

    In 1968 my dad bought a Polaris Mustang in Abercrombie North Dakota. It had a 303 Wankel engine that never quit. Bogey wheels, springs and skis busted constantly, but that Wankel kept on running. We laugh about it now because my brothers and I could not catch up to a jack rabbit with that mustang.

    We had a few cats around that had rotary also. They were always referred to as a Harley Davidson of snowmobileís because the Wankelís sound so different than all the other screamers.
