Re: Forgive My Blasphamy

I have a 55 first series Chevy pickup that is Juniper Green. It's a beautiful color, although I'm not sure what it would look like on an A. Give it a look.

Re: I May Have Found a New Rodent Control

I had a kidney disease when I was in the third grade (actually damage due to sulfa drugs). I had to eat liver daily to "build up my iron count".

I'd rather starve.

Re: Ethanol free gas in Sulphur Springs, Texas
