Stenhouse first, Flipper 2nd.

Would have loved to hear the discussion he had with the crew chief.

Excuse me please, Sir. I was most bizzy.

I have been in close contact with my little friend in Utah. He, too, has been bizzy.

He has ordered 30,000 lbs of bananas and has asked me to pass on the news to you. Mr. Pete will be leaving at 0’Early tomorrow for your house with said delivery.

Please do NOT be tethered when he arrives. Thank you.

This is the truth and you MAY take it to the bank. :)

Will your poncho have a advertisement for Goodyear in bright lights on it???

It doesn't need lights, its bright orange. I could walk public gamelands on opening day of buck season and be perfectly safe.

According to accuweather the rain should hold off until 6pm or so. According to local TV rain will hold of until about 2pm.
