Default Igida. Igida Bugida.

Greetings all,
I live in sunny Texas with my beautifull wife Venus, two cats Carolina and Oreo, and our rotten little mininature dachsund Tink. &

We have a dark red (or what ever GM calls it) 2001 Pontiac Bonneville SE that we bought used back in 2003. It had a little over 40k miles at the time and no notable problems. Since then, we've put
  • 70 thousand miles,
  • 8 tires,
  • 2 wheels (alloys warp easily against curbs at high speeds, huh?),
  • various other maintence parts, and a
  • 10 disc mp3 CD changer
in/on it.

I have been reading this board for a few months. Now I am experiencing more problems with the car than I can keep up with. Normally I would trade a car in at this point, but this car is more fun to drive than any other practical car I have previously owned. Since they do not make 'em anymore, I'm going to need some help to keep it on the road.

I am Sergeant Whit; hear me roar.

Default “RRRROOOOAAARRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I was born the seventh of eight octuplets in Meeteetse, Wyoming. I attended Meeteetse High School, home of the Meeteetse Mighty Midgets, were I was the head of Public Relations for the Debate Club and an active participant in the Meeteetse Mighty Midget Soccer Spirit Squad.

After graduating Magna *** Laude, I attended the Meeteetse Shinto Seminary, where I majored in Off-road ATV color commentary, and minored in Underwater Basket Weaving.
After receiving my Doctorate of Business, I opened a printing press in downtown Toronto that printed obscure 3rd Century B.C. Greek manuscripts that no one could read. I vowed that it would be my life’* work, due to the pure thrill that the words philia, agape, eros, and storge imparted in my soul.

In spite of the lack of interest in this dead language, I kept the business afloat. I used the grant money I received from an elderly iron worker during my two-year sabbatical in Borneo spent studying the nocturnal mating rituals of hissing cockroaches. Hissing cockroaches are not just tasty, I might add, but to die for.

After saving 14 small children and a baby seal from almost certain death in a burning school bus embedded in the side of a mountain, after being the subject of a local college student’* “scientific experiment” with a JATO rocket, I realized I had a call for public service.

Since I was denied entry into the French Foreign Legion due to my cannibalistic eating habits, I decided to join the US Army as an Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile Repairer. After my third tour in ‘Nam, I re-classed to be a Tanker.

Killeen is centered between Austin and Waco. It'* about an 45 minute drive each way.

It is located aroung Fort Hood, along with Temple, Copperas Cove, Harker Hieghts, Nolanville, Belton, and Gatesville.

I also travel regularly to Texarkana and Minneapolis, MN.
