  1. Saw my first "Double-Masker" today at the supermarket. It was ahead of me in the checkout line. Came with a bonus of wearing plastic gloves, and it wiped down the pad of the credit card machine. I go through my checkout routine, and head out to the parking lot. I did like I always do when I got out the door- ripped off my face diaper. I was walking to the pickup when double masker is pushing it's cart back to the store- it yells to me "Hey you need to put your mask on!" Without hesitation I shouted back "Hey you need to MYOFB!" Groan.
  2. That may be a bit out of his comfort zone but give Gregg Hoffman (Under Dog on here) a call 610-428-6075. If he doesn't answer, leave a message. He is operatin' and will call you back at his next opportunity. Tell him the Hellertown Truck Stop/Freight Broker sent you.

  6. No sir but the thought of an FWD doing what an FWD does best makes me moist.
  7. Donald and Lee. They both came to my Mom's funeral last year. It was good to see them despite the circumstances. Later on that year I was having issues getting my Ram aligned properly and I heard that Donald was really good with Ram alignments so I took it to him. He had me in and out in an hour and it has been perfect ever since.
  8. I was 5 in 78, we lived in Montgomery County Pa just outside of far northeast Philadelphia. When my dad was home from trucking he worked for the local Gulf station running their tow trucks, had a Holmes 750 on a 1971 6500 GMC (among one other tow truck and two roll-backs.) They had the tow contract for Lower Moreland Township (Huntingdon Valley.) He would chain up that 6500 and he swore it would go anywhere. He said he spent about 28 or 30 hours in that truck pulling people out of ditches and winching them up hills or clearing roads before he finally gave up to sleep. I remember the bliz
  9. David Wild, have you ever heard of the Naval Air Warfare Center, Aircraft Division in Warminster Pennsylvania? In years past it started as the Brewster Aircraft Company, was later taken over by the War Department, and later the US Navy. It was also called NAS Johnsville and the Naval Air Development Center. Not to be confused with NAS Willow Grove, Pa. which is about 6 nautical miles to the southwest. NAWC Warminster was a victim of one of Reagan's BRACs and the facility began to relocate to Pax River, Md in the mid 1980's and the facility totally closed and the flag was retired in March of 19
  10. I want to know who dropped the ball- each and every exterior door let alone the interior ones should have been locked up tight and when the first intruder came through they should have been blasted.
