I am not sure about that, all the rain we been getting is coming from the south :P

It came a gulley washer last night again, probably going to be repairing the driveway again sometime this week if it will dry out enough to scrape up enough gravel from the bottom of the hill and get it back up closer to the top, the problem I have is the old Ford tractor doesn't have enough traction to drag it up too far :roll:

Sounds like this week is not going to be too good of week to drive the Cobra around and not get wet if you guys are in the same weather pattern as us.

See Ya,
Mike

Yes, he/she was pretty cool, I haven't seen him/her in a while, was around for about a month, like a big house cat, I think it ate all the chipmunks and went looking for better eats. While you couldn't walk up and pet Bob (or Bobbi) you could get within 10-12 feet it wouldn't run off just saunter away.

We had a little spike buck like that too, he would come up to the house every day at about 7 PM one summer and hang out, eat the weeds out of the yard, I was forbidden from shooting him come fall by my wife (I never shoot bucks anyway) we ate dinner out on the porch every day we could and he just wanted to join us.

So much for that, the Cobra is cool and I hope it was ok to combine those two clips and add the titles.

See Ya,
Mike

Thanks for the help Mike!! YouTube access is blocked on my work computer but I talked to the IT guy (a fellow Hot Rodder) and he gave me access, so hopefully I can share the youtube link and it will work.
