Week 45 Status Report ...Pittsartist
I lost my wingman ...rest in peace Snoopy Doo (Sid post)
Sorry for the "Old Yeller" moment, but I lost my
dear Labrador Retriever last week. Snoopy Doo succumbed to
aggressive cancer very swiftly last week. We knew he was fighting
something, didn't figure out until the very end that it was end-game
cancer. He was 10...too young.
The Van Cave! ...Smokeyray PIREP/Visit

probably was, but I was glad to help my bud out in a bind <g>.

Tosten's New Military Style Grips ...SeanB
I couldn't make it to OSH this year. Too many things
happening around home. I had several products on my radar I wanted
to see in person at this year's show. One of particular interest
being Tosten's new Military Style Grip.
