Well, everyone else in class made thier last names in Old English. I went a different route.



This stuff is hard to cut out. I thought it was going to look worse, turned out half decent for my 1st try

There's a reference to spraying pearls above I'm afraid to make my really creative comment about.

Is this like the AC/DC and Def Leppard mirrors you used to be able to win at the County Fair, that teenage boys hung up in their rooms still in the dumb protective white cardboard frames?

Oh yeah, Grass Valley. I keep forgetting....

Dude!! That is HILARIOUS!! I forgot all about those. I had a Guns 'N Roses one that I got at the fair and I actually left it in that "dumb protective white cardboard frame". Pretty nice job of "pegging" me. Don't go anywhere with that.

Please.

Impressive my friend, very impressive. Cool

I still have a Led Zeppelin etched mirror in the garage, still in the white cardboard protective cover!

afro

I got it at the Cali State Fair in 1986, where I also saw AC/DC in concert. How things change.

I also fell in love with that spinning ride 'Gravitron'. It is the one where it spins around and the floor drops away. They were blaring AC/DC inside and in an altered state it was awesome, um, so I heard.

I would so have that ride at my house if I ever found one.

cheers

I lived in SoCal at the time, so I won't bore you with the details as to why I was at the State Fair, but it was a good time.

Thanks for the memories...

The UPS guy said it was to look for chicks. That or a science project. Don't worry if you have never done something you dont want to tell your best buds you have not lived.

Karaoke champ of orange county my money is on this one

HaHa, It was to cruise chicks!

Shocked

Actually, since you asked, that was the year I graduated from High School and my senior project won the 'Golden Bear' for industrial arts. So I got to spend a week in Sacramento at the fair and around the capitol on the state.

I wouldn't want any rogue Karaoke rumors starting to surface.

lol!

P.S. If you don't stop hanging out with 'that' UPS guy, I am going to start my own rumors.

I am just jealous. BTW, anything mechanical, he can fix it or figure it out, don't let him fool you.

He is really a genius when it comes to these things and he just delivers for UPS as a hobby...

Oh, you said margarita, which reminded me.

I also have a sine wave inverter hooked to 4 50amp solar panels and 4 Optima red tops.

What does this mean? It means I can run the blender all day and not have to worry about firing up the generator!

cheers

Although lately, I am partial to the Mojito!!! Rum, Lime, Mint, Surgar, can it get any better!!!!

Don't even offer! I can see me easily being talked into defacing a pair of perfectly good pop outs with little 53s!
