    Re: Any Yankee fans here?

    Yep. I was a Yankees fan when I was a little boy back in the late 50's, early 60's.
    I've hardly watched a game since but still consider myself a fan!

    Any Yankee fans here?

    I haven't watched a baseball game in years, yet here I am watching and waiting for
    Aaron Judge to hit homer #61 and #62.
    It's like watching paint dry.
    Almost as bad as soccer.

    I am soooooo bad.

    Re: Whats for Dinner - Car wiring harness

    What is it with critters eating cars?
    I haven't had a bit of trouble along those lines in almost 50 years of owning cars.
    I guess northeast critters don't have any taste for car wires.
