Mine was 17, I think. It was really low. But we were the first year that did not get drafted. Good news that lasted well beyond 15 weeks.

Good news indeed! I did OJT at Ft Sam Houston during the police action of that day, but never made it so far! At least surgeons, like us bed pan jockeys, don't belong to SEIU, so the next Regan probably wont fire him in 2012

Saw a couple of great movies the other day on ScFi. One was the Toolbox Murders - a real cool movie with a great cast.

The other was Timber Falls - certainly one of the great movies of 2007

Glad to hear about your daughter. To answer your question: Nope!

Alex, how can nothing good have happened when this is now the good news thread?... for another 15 weeks.

Dude! It's gonna be an awesome 15 weeks of motoring! According to the schedule, that means I am going to be able to get my Alfa to the AROC convention and back completely free of automotive disaster.

Looks like that should keep you busy for, oh say, 13 - 15 weeks, Larry!!
Have a good time (and keep Belinda out of the driver's seat of the new 500!!!)

Can't do it, Gordy. She's driving it now. Motivation for me to finish putting the engine in her Jag.

Sad thing is ... she loves the 500. Everybody loves the 500! I guess that's not sad, but what I meant is I don't get to drive it.

The better question, does he still have one or has he been relegated to that pool of either mid-century, or assigned risk...based on family experience, not his.

Not to worry, I'm waiting for the next shoe to drop also...
