G'day to you and congrats :applause: on your 1st new to you Cub. I am sure Tinkertoy will help show you around the site - all the important stuff. I am sure you both will have fun working on Molly, she is a straight honest looking ole girl. I imagine she will be some pretty when she has her new clothes on :D

BTW, the Pacquette family name is an old and familiar name from where I come from in Northern Ontario...

Les, Welcome!

She looks like she is already sporting a nice pair of boots and just needs some lipstick and some new clothes, like Rudi says, and she'll be ready for the dance ;)
