I am 98 out of 253 minus the 50 = 203 left. At least they are doing it by seniority. The real question is should I stay there and hope (there's that hope word again) it will get busy, or should I find another job? Do you guys need a fireman yet? my leg is completely healed and I can shovel coal all day.

i am not sure if they need any more fireman or not,havent been down there much over the winter but i will check next time i am down there.

At least they don't stuff a DT 466 with a nine speed in it. I don't dare say much more, we'll have DOT and the guys in the black Suburbans all over NEPA. Will it stop or should I go 'ditch diving' when I see you coming? It is a free wheeling beast with no conscience or lack of attitude! Wouldn't a new Pete with about 600 little ponies be just the ticket ?! Kinda like having an EFM 1300 sucking down 45 lbs of rice coal per hour!! Just watching the flame is scary.........not that I want too see you flaming out on us...... Try getting a recipe for chocolate chip cookies, NOT the 'Oklahoma City' ones! Napalm smelled pretty wild on Nam, but that was another time........

This is the result of idle time. I just wanted to see if I could do it. Maiden voyage was last year, I promptly fell in the lake. Then got the hang of it and have a 12' made out of an 18'.
