I picked my Milton Hi-Flow fitting up off of Amazon. Man, I live out in the sticks, so I am used to waiting weeks for orders. Bought these online from Amazon and had them the next day! I'm impressed...but doesn't take much to do that nowadays. :D

I attended a parade today with Kelley. A little warm. Probably shouda run with the top up, but he likes it better with the top off. He said he was a little sore today as he used the weed eater for three hours yesterday in the heat. He is amazing. Still looking good at 93:

A couple other G503 materialized:

This one was loaded up a bit. Made little Zeph look naked:

By far the largest parade I have been in and the most spectators I have seen:

It was nice. 90 degrees today. If you are heading to TP, you'll come right on by our place on the way. I wish I was on my way there now, but every year I have a meeting on Tuesday night of the event week that I can't miss. Hopefully, I will be down there on Wednesday afternoon. Looking forward to it as always!

Wow, my thread burst over the 100,000 view mark! Not quite the first to 100,000, but close. Likely the first non-database thread to reach that mark.

Thank you everyone...and give your MB or GPW a salute tomorrow on July 4th!!! May even post a photo myself tomorrow...one of my favorite things to do. 8) :lol:

Regards,
Zeph

Thank you. I made myself a sign for Father's Day to provide additional motivation for me:

The slogan came in handy for a local July 4th parade today. There was a GPW that needed a bit of assistance in order to Keep 'Em Rolling! I think the heat was taking a toll on everything.

Image

The heat didn't seem to bother Lt. Kelley...aged 93. Right around a 100 degrees and still insisted on wearing his flight jacket for the parade:

What a trooper!! Happy 4th!!

Wow fantastic Zeph!

Your recent photos of your garage has been of great help as we're having a garage built at the moment and you're giving us plenty of ideas! :)

Thank you. That is good to hear you are working on a garage project. I have to continue to pinch myself every time I am out there. It is like a dream.

Good luck with your build!
