My close friend owns a full service repair shop and for a steak-n-eggs brekkie on a consistent basis as a retainer, he helps me troubleshoot and do work on a lift in his shop.

I drove the M151 Jeep extensively in the Army in the 80s and the Growler looks way cooler.

Vet News: Not So Sad, Happily Vet News: Not So Sad, Happily

So the vet wants four digits, but only just barely four digits. And we get two lumps removed for that price. So not so bad, not so sad. (She’s smiling at me in this picture.)
