Thanks the LT now has 128k+ miles on her, she is getting upset though as she knows there will be another near her soon a younger gal with longer legs great looking "Headlights" that says ok Just ride me anywhere and has the stamina to make it happen!

Hey I know those Guys...I said when I saw the article

Congratulation!

Tom,
Long Tall Sally (LT Sally) hasn't got much attention past year or so with the newer gals (GS) around...so last week I took her out for a week in VA, WVA and PA, she had every right to let me know in the middle of nowhere...but she didn't, she really preformed well and glad I renewed our old relationship...

Just hated I didn't take Short Fat Fanny along also....

Thanks Dick, but I gotta admit that you scared me a little when I saw the post and my name was mentioned in the same subject line with Gallo! The thought that flashed through my mind was, what the hell did I do now that has me being compared with Tom? Thought maybe I was gona have to grow a beard!! But hey, it turned out to be a good thing.

Cheers,

Hey Tom we'll have to celebrate at iron Horse.

That would have scared me too, Lynn. Is it really ever a good thing to have your name in the same headlines with Tom?

Hey Tom:

Now runnin' and duckin'.

OBTW, congradulations to both of you.

Congratulations my friend. Keep up the good work! It's been 8 years, 9 months and 6 days since I gave up that silly habbit. Now if I could only lose the 40# that I gained all would be wonderful. Shortly after I quit smoking and started gaining weight I complained to my doctor that now I would die of obesity rather than cancer. The good doctor responded that that would be a good thing 'cause it would be much less painful! :~)

Well I FINALLY got my MOA mag, as here in Flagler Beach they still use the pony express!
Kudo's to you guys!
It isn't tough doing those kind of miles on an LT, can't wait till they engineer some air conditioning to beat the heat!
Congrats guys!

Hey Tom

Keep it up buddy.
Not to overshadow your accomplishment or Lynn's
but I quit smoking somewhere round the time you were born
and didn't gain that extra 40 lbs until about ten years ago

damn if I'd know I'd live this long I'd have taken better care of myself

Me too, until the cold rain rolls into Columbus, OH on Wednesday. Got the chance of sliding into Clinton, IA on snow. Supposed to warm up so I can get down to Little Rock on dry road. Think warm, think warm, think warm.

You had to start smoking awfully early to quit by the time Tom was born. You must be a REALLY old codger.
