    Wish I could get them to do stuff for me that quick....

    Just kidding, I'm glad those boys are doing the right thing by helping out a friend in need.


    I hope they know something about electricity though....

    Yeah she did Stu, she is a heck of a lady ....couldn't have asked for a better one, or rather one that would put up with me.

    It's a hot one out there today Larry, hope you can cool those boys down when they get done.

    Kudos to you Mommy and Daddy Ash!

    Ya done a fine job raising those boys. They are a credit to you.

    And you boys, each of you are more the man for extending the hand of friendship and knowledge to someone who needed a helping hand.
    One day when you least expect it, it will come back to you.

    I wish the whole world could be exposed to FWW. The examples set here would change the world as we know it.
