Guys: Just gave up my room at the Holiday Inn Express. If you want it better call. Dan
Hope you are still going to be attending. I can't talk with Gator the entire time!
Larry: Will be there, just found a better room. Dan
Awwww come on i know for a fact that Gator can talk for an entire weekend ....
Gator could talk a pet rock to death!
Perhaps Gator should explain to everyone in detail the circumstances surrounding his obtaining a KRW Pan Straightening Jig at the Richmond, Indiana 2008 Model T Centennial event?
Just keeping this at the top of the queue so all MTFCA members can view. I think we need an explanation from Gator?
Send Gator over to me. I'll take him on for talking. I'll round up Mack and Jack and we'll wear him out to where he can't even call for a cold beer without help. Being in the auction business I can talk for ten hours non-stop and barely take a breath.
Uncle Jack can turn a 45 second incident from his Navy days into a 45 minute story. Course it would only be a 15 minute story if he didn't spend 30 minutes waiting for the guys to quit laughing so he can go on. Uncle Jack is plumb funny. Mack talks so slow by the time he asks Mike Walker if he wants to go have dinner and Mike answers it's supper time. Mike talks so slow he got arrested one time and by the time he told the two cops his name and address one had retired and the other one couldn't remember what they were going to charge him with so they let him go. Mack is so slow he must have had Jr. Samples for a voice coach.
Rare photo of Stan silent,(I think it must have been either 10, 2, or 4.)
I'm happy he had a Dr Pepper in his hand, of coarse what was in the cup could be anything, hope to everyone there in March, I've got to get my spaces pd, I forgot them last fall, so they sent me another notice yesterday T and TT Ford Fulton Mo
Now that is funny!!!
Here is anothr photo of Stan being silent
Stan,it was Mike who was in the Coast Guard,not me.
Not true, Paul. According to my friend's wife, I snore. Mike agrees.
Uncle Jack, it's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Now Jack, I will have to say if Gator talks that old rock to death, the old rock will certainly have an opportunity to learn a thing or two.lol
Since some anonymous posters seem to know something that they believe should be "known about" concerning one of my oldest Model T friends, Gator, I think that those posters, who signed in as "I Know The Details" and the "Phantom", should step forward and identify themselves. Then they need to state what they feel needs explaining. This is poor and is even a poorer use of this Forum.
This guy's giving the Phantom a bad name. Gator's a good guy.
You guys are just beginners when it comes to maximum use of words. Only a true Irishman knows the art of talking and the Regan's are hands down the best on the planet. I remember asking my wife Renee if she was mad at me. She replied "No - why do you ask?". I said "because you haven't spoken to me in 2 weeks". She said "I didn't want to interrupt you...".
I bet if she holds both your hands,you're speachless. (G)
Stan how long were you sleeping there? I've had to use a chain saw to rescue some model T parts that were left in one spot too long and had to cut a tree down to get at them. That tree might be 5-10 years old. It looks like it grew up through the floor boards.
I took about an hour nap while Mike was telling Bev what we did that day. I woke up as soon as the Ribs on the Barbee were done.
John Regan - Well, you're not the only one! Whether writing or verbal conversation, I've never been know as "a man of few words! The difference between you and me is that I may use too many words and I may not always use 'em correctly, or even spell 'em correctly for that matter, but they are words that most Model T guys can understand. In your case, we all know that you try really hard to come down to our level, but try as you might, you usually manage to slip into your engineering mode and use words like impedance, and microfarads, and microadversarial low velocity hydrophobic resistacaters, and all of those electrical terms that even when I look them up in the dictionary, the definition is full of words that are even more high tech! Ha, ha,....just kidd'n ya' John,....well,.......kinda',....harold

I was with my old friend, neighbor, and a cousin of my dad's, Louie. We used to go hang out at the local recycling scrapyard once in a while. Louie used to be an airplane mechanic and radio man when he was working. Well any how we were walking past a pile of junk and he got all excited because he found a "selenium rectifier". I didn't know what that was. Still don't. I thought selenium was a vitamin or mineral you can get at GNC. It didn't look like you could eat this thing. So we left it there. Louie is 92 this year, so a lack of selenium doesn't seem to be a problem for him.
I wonder if selenium is good for impedance?
Was he impeded by his impotence??
As long as he wasn't rectified by the rear end.
