Sounds like it will be awesome.

When will it be done?

What month are we going back to Tellico?

I never realized how much Chelsea looked like you until those back to back pics. I now think you're cute too.

Good to see you are still alive.

I want her to grow up around the good times of wheeling and to teach her
how to drive at a young age.
I told her i only have 2 rules of driving it.
1. There are no boys allowed to drive it
2. No boys to get under the hood

John, there should only be one rule: No boys period.

I know i"m going to have to loosen up before my daughters get older. But they all will know "testicles are removable, and going back to prison wont be so bad" at least that will get them thinking!

By the way, nice CJ. Hopefully I'll be starting on mine in the next few weeks.
