    Got to have a Shiner in your hand, and not talk so fast...

    Brush guards are for Travelall's, for a car you use longhorn's...

    I just don't understand why Americans from South and Central America aren't welcome in North America... :scratch head:

    The ones who knock first and use the front door are welcome. Always. ;)

    He's wrong, and as long as I'm buying things from the Lower 48, I'm going to continue to remind retailers what a "continent" is and who is living on it (namely, us Alaskans).

    Yeah, an old friend used to complain about people who think Vermont is part of New England:

    - It has no ocean.
    - It seceded from Connecticut, which should mean it seceded from New England.
    - It has a French name.
    - It has no tribal treaties.
    - It was the only state in the region where escaped slaves were home-free.

    So I'm with you on this one!

    My point exactly!

    Hey, a friend of mine who did improv comedy used to nail me constantly with the old "Do you know" joke: I'd say something like "Do you know how to tie a bowline?" and she'd say, "No, but hum a few bars and I think I can pick it up!"

    She got me over and over and over again.

    Then she moved to New York. She was giving me her address over the phone: 3457 Juneau Boulevard. I said, "What?" She gave it to me again. I said, "3457 What?" She said, "Juneau Boulevard!"

    I said, "No, but hum a few bars and I think I can pick it up . . . ."

    A happy, happy day!

    I have not really thought about it but I think you are correct. From Huntsville to Nashville is just exploding. I met my wife in Nashville 33 years ago and Nashville today is nothing like back then it has grown so much. Going south Nashville’s suburbs have filled in to Franklin. Huntsville has filled in through Madison. The growth is exciting.

    The growth activity along the North side of I-565, from downtown Huntsville out to the airport is really something. Old things being pushed out of the way to make for huge new developments.

    Then you go over to Decatur and everything is more steady. Everybody is working - there's no one available to run the filling station/convenience stores at this point.

    May I qualify that? There's a big difference between growth and sprawl. I visited my niece in Franklin a couple of years ago. Met lots of nice folks around there, but the highway traffic was truly an abomination.

    And if it weren't for us tourists, downtown Nashville would've been a ghost town - like downtown here in Augusta!

    Glad you said that. Sounds like Decatur is more my speed! (See #92.)

    Errata:

    I should have said the south side along I-565. Sorry.
