To Chris and the Anderson Gang: There is nothing like good old-fashioned American values (God, family and guns), is there? blink.gif biggrin.gif ohmy.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif Regards, Walter

P.S. If you, or any other 'infidels' out there, don't know about it already, there is a great anti-terrorist, antisocial, anti-criminal, pro-police, pro-military, extremely funny (if you happen to share a certain sick sense of humor) web site out there, called: www.stickdeath.com [WARNING: not recommended for children] Some of the animations are a little slow loading (usually metered), but are normally well worth it. ohmy.gif biggrin.gif blink.gif smile.gif If you don't find it entertaining (amusing), you are probably not an American! unsure.gif sad.gif cool.gif I was introduced to this site by some of my students. Who says there is no educating going on in contemporary American schools? ohmy.gif blink.gif tongue.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

Chris, you have 2 little Tommy's? Or should I say you now have 2 little mole getters? You gotta have one for each hand when you hunt those little devils. Kinda like that scene in Miller's Crossing when the guy is under the bed and the 2 bad guys come in to get him. Great scene.

Chris,


Great photo!

I like the Thompsons and the family.

Chris that is a classic!

You need to have it printed and send it out to family and friends as your actual Yule card.

Blessings to all!
