My first time there was 1979 and it was 325 to 1. Getting turned down by women was never such a value.

Hey, with all this beer and rounds being offered up, we should just have a bar-b-que in ATL in June & an ice fishing party in MSP in..... May. (Ha!)
If Al Gore is right , maybe we'll have those January BBQ's in MSP.

Yea, me too. Not everyone is smart enough to be...Spacemen!

Should be fun, eh?
It will be fun. I hate paperwork and automation. If it's your leg, the only thing I insist upon is having fun and flying the airplane exactly how you want. I will get a little nervous though if you say: "Hey Carl, watch this."

Now that's funny.

No, no, the quote is "Hey Ya'll, hold my beer and watch this."
