    JRK - what do you think? Is Halo Reach better than MW2?

    Im going out of town this Sat. for a week, but when I get back, I can hit Mondays at 5pm or later and any other day 6:30 or later. So Monday probably would work best with your schedule.

    Sup -Once I'm back in town, we can take the Hookah up to HWs! I need to order some new tobacco - flavor requests anyone?

    Red curry can even make cardboard taste good.

    Red Curry Panang *Thai* is really good.

    I had Indian food tonight. I have a problem saying "i'm full" with Indian food.

    I wish I had 4 stomachs like TFM.

    Word, I could go for more red curry w/lobster. Also +1 on the Panang.

    There's always room for more nan, especially at a buffet *burp*.

    Sappy and JRK, were you at WHS this morning? I headed over but got deterred by the lack of any parking in a one mile radius!

    Yeah, I was there and so was all of Northern VA apparently. I just turned around, went home, and ran a few miles instead.

    You know, I realized when I drove up that ACTA has both spring and *fall* leagues. I remember them playing through September and October, so that might be a problem at WHS. Perhaps Kenmore Middle School next time?

    X, somewhere in between enjoying the Memphis sun and BBQ, check your email!

    Got the e-mail, Topaz, and no problem. Next year sounds good; gives us time to practice playing together without the pressure of trying to win a tournament match.

    Sappy,

    Where is that google twmac map link you provided way back? We should try to keep that updated. I think three need to be updated: JRS at some island, Alice in Hilton head.. now the Xisbum comes through in Memphis!

    Can you repost?

    AWESOME! Great pic and the sign is fantastic.

    To quote Zapvor without holding hot dogs drenched in shampoo.

    "Most outstanding! Oh yeah."

    Good work Xisbum.

    Did you make that sign yourself?

    p.s. While eating crabs in HdG with Hollywood last night, I tried to convince him to attempt the burger in 90year old grease, trip again.

    Is that legendary place near you Xisbum?

    JRS,

    We should play soon at an endor court. My tennis abilities are still at an all time low. However, my drinking abilities are at an all time high. I'm going for bar G.O.A.T.

    So let me know your schedule this week. I'm certain you'll do very well....

    Then you can celebrate just like Ray:

    Yup. Little known fact, but I was briefly a teacher when most of you were still in short pants and pony tails. It was a short bridge between my sailor days and my career as a journalist.

    It's in downtown Memphis, where my daughter and I are headed shortly to grab some more shots of beautiful - and hot - Memphis landmarks. Don't know if it's open on Sunday, but will check it out.

    Since Fat Larry's BBQ joint is technically in Bartlett, a suburb of Memphis, we took more photos that are indisputably in Memphis. And we left TWMAC's mark...

    You got any other specs on it? There probably a bunch of special stuff that guy did to it.

    Plus I saw Cali plates on it which probably inflates the price a bit.

    I bet someone is willing to buy it for that price especially in Cali

    I hear ya. I hope its not that much of a change between here and CA.

    Cost of living indicators has only a 3.4% increase between DC to LA.

    The Bronco def has a lot of stuff in it.. I suppose its worth it. Looks sweet.

    It's noon somewhere.. right?

    Don't have exact dates yet. Be warned, I've been on a strict workout program the last couple months of minimal tennis, lots of alcohol and late night bar hopping. I'm def a =<3.0 at the moment.

    The bumper on that thing is custom made and it has a winch and like 4 driving lights. Thats what I can see on the outside any way.

    Cost of living may not be that much, but poeple out west pay more for vehicles of that nature for some reason. It may be due to the ewather being nicer and they can drive them the whole year Im not sure. But prices out there are easily 20% higher than for the same

    Hollywood,

    Here is the link with the vehicle info.

    Also saw an earlier sold restoration project they did. The color would look great on your scout!

    They have did alot to that thing they probably listed it at 50k to start and keep creeping down the price. Id imagine they sell it for around 40k.

    That color aint bad, but Its tad bit to shiny for me. Id go with a flatter version. Never been a fan of the superglossy paint. especially since it shows any little imperfection in the body. Works great for show cars, not so much for everyday driver/beater types like the scout.

    Shiny paint does chips and imperfections. On a show car, it's painful to look at. On a 4x4.. .dude.. listen to shane falco!

    Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory... lasts forever.
