Here is a Garfield cartoon that I think is kinda cute.

I have a whole file (real one, not computerized) of train related cartoons that I clipped and saved for James during deployments and underways. When I find that, I will have to learn how to use the scanner and post them.

Cool! Off topic question. Why do both you and James have numbers in yout user names, and why is his higher than yours by 21?
:D

Simple answer: the numbers are references to our trucks.

I have a 2000 Ford F-150 XLT 4x4 extended cab short bed, with a 4.6L V8 (281 Cubic Inch Displacement).

James has a 1985 Ford F-150 XLT 4x2 extended cab, long bed with 5.0L V8 (302 Cubic Inch Displacement). This thing is a beast, with a 5th wheel hitch and a transmission cooler that is larger than the radiator of most cars.

It is presently in storage after it's oil pan got destroyed up here, and to add insult to injury, he can't get the engine replaced by a mechanic without getting the registration redone up here, which requires an emissions test, which requires that the motor spin, but with no oil pan, the engine would seize. Base housing forbids heavy work on the truck, and his present health also prevents doing it himself, even if we lived in a locale that allowed it. The idea is that when we move, he is going to pull the old motor and rebuild it, assuming that his physical ability has not degraded past the point of being able to do engine work by then. I am optimistic that will not be the case, and he is too attached to sell the '85.

Unfortunately, the weather and people here have not been nice to that truck. The paint is in bad shape now, and several people have hit it and keyed the paint up. When we moved up here, the paint was pristine, after a new paint job. With all the key marks in it, the paint started to go.

I've heard that in Russia you can "help" bureaucracy with a bottle of vodka and some Dollars or Euros.
In Germany it's not that easy... :naughty: :mrgreen:
