    Home in Florida. That's the boom part. Awaiting decision from the appraiser that the van is repairable or totaled. That's the bust part.
    Rear-ended on I-40 in Nashville on Wednesday so my holiday started early with a real BANG!! But no injuries, so that's something to celebrate.
    Enjoy the festivities and your families.

      I think that transit would require dual motors just for the extra weight factor. Lol.

      That’s why he’s the only Transit you know with backflow checkvalves in the exhaust system.

      Second worst fear, after breaking down in the middle of nowhere while loaded.

      We're you able to drive home?

      Just ran my numbers for the first six months and just shy of $60k. Not too bad for a part timer.

      Independence Day
      by Mary M. North
      We celebrate a "day of days,"
      Which saw a nation rise
      Through din of battle, clash of arms,
      And severed kindred ties.
      This day we draw aside the veil,
      And backward take a look
      On stirring scenes, brought to our view,
      As in an open book.
      We see the lights in "old North Church"--
      Those beacons burning bright--
      And gallop on with Paul Revere,
      Throughout that fateful night.
      We fight with men at Bunker Hill,
      Whose aim was good and true--
      Nerved to the task by loyal hearts,
      'Neath coats of buff and blue.
      With praying Washington we wait
      At Valley Forge, in snow and sleet,
      And see the blood-prints on the ground
      From shoeless soldiers' feet.
      With thin-clad, shiv'ring, dauntless men
      We cross the Delaware
      To meet the foe and capture them,
      And untold perils dare.
      We rise with those patriots brave,
      When they their names affix
      To the "Declaration" broad and grand,
      Of Seventeen Seventy-six.
      As liberty loud it proclaims,
      We hear the tones of the bell,
      While echoing valley, hill and glen
      The message to nations tell.
      And so each year we celebrate
      This day, so dear to all,
      When a Nation to new life awoke,
      At Freedom's earnest call.
