That's the ticket, Rob.

Slapper, have you forgotten the Mason jars full of gold coins in the back yard? Dig one of 'em up and you can be the proud owner.

Dutch...do you know how many sparkplugs id have to change to afford a box like that.....
We got over 6 inches of rain today.....and counting...maybe the ground is loose enough to dig up one of them mason jars....if I can just remember where to dig.

Make sure you share a little of that wet stuff, we could use a little here in TN but we're not near as bad off as the Great Plains and the upper midwest. The corn belt hasn't had any significant rain in 40-50 days.
