Ok. I guess it would depend on the different pic. I noticed it the most from the way the c's were sitting.
Nice work on it though.

Since you kids won't drive south and because we have no snow to sled I might just load up and come play with yo guys. That is if you guys get you toys up and running. Kieth you are going to like the small tight front end your working on, looks good.

As Waren Miller said if we don't do it this year we will be a year older when we do it next year, and I see too much crap at work that makes me happy to see every day and when I wake up it is a dam good day, so make the best of it and do what makes you happy. Ok I have had a few and I will step off the soap box.
