Kim the shirts where the least I could do.. I owe you guys big time.I also forgot to Thank Bob and Donna they towed me back to the staging area with there Sub...Dan

    Burt didn't I pay like $80.00 for the Slip Yoke in Salida.. These Fawkers here in Hollister told me it list for $210.00. But they would sell it to me cause I'm such a good custumer for $140.00.
