Bigdog it looks like you had a very good day :!: :!:

My two year old grandson arrived today and decided that my newly painted hood/tank was better suited to be a drum. His stick was a 6 D cell aluminum flashlight. Got to fix a couple of dents and repaint. Once the little fella gets out of the hospital we'll have a great time :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: 8)

Bigdog,

You're right of course :lol:

It was my fault for leaving it where he could get to it. It won't be too long before I have to hide the keys 8)

My 3 year-old grandson will show you how to start a cub. He knows where the on / off switch is and wher the pull rod is for the starter. His mother watched him climb up on the lo-boy yesterday and sit on the seat. She didn't seem as impressed as the rest of us were.

Bigdog,
I was just wondering if your son and grandson use your cub homing machine or if they each have their own?

That is a great pic.
Sounds like grandpa will have to keep his cub locked up shortly.
I don't know who takes your pics. but they are always very good & clear.
So keep them coming.

Dale - I give credit to the camera. It's a Canon G2. It was not cheap but the quality of the pictures it takes plus the great features it has makes it worth the money to me. I am trying to teach my wife how to frame a good shot and I think it's starting to work.

Awesome

Postby allenlook » Sun Sep 19, 2004 9:23 am

BD, that's an awesome photo.

Like you said, ain't it amazing how some people can't frame a shot? I've got a lot of pictures of myself with the feet cut off, or the top of my head, or where I'm a little dot in an expansive picture, etc...

I guess it's not as easy as it seems.

didn't recognize BigDog in the shades :!:

:idea: maybe the avatar needs a pair :!: :wink: :wink:

BD . be sure to leave those cubs in neutral when you park them. it's only a matter of time till your grandson fires one up. then at least it won't be raisin' havoc trying to break the barn door down. or hurting the little guy.

Art - absolutely! My cubs are always parked in neutral. I have developed the "shake hands with the gear shift before starting" habit, but I know others have not so I always leave them that way and I am teaching both of them to do that. Mikey cannot get into the barn without adult help. But, I don't know how much longer I will be able to say that. Thanks for your concern though.
