Fuzzy, yeah ... Denby, maybe ... but Sway will have to get old enough to forget why he doesn't post here anymore. Besides, he's my age (far too young to post on this thread ).

Not my fault, if they'd make the damn turn signals with a louder noise so I could hear it, I'd turn it off. Till then just learn to live with it!
