    It's been a sad Sunday :(. Sold the Taco on ebay yesterday, guy came up from WV to pick it up. Here's the link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/e...59&viewitem=&sspagename=ADME:L:EOISSA:US:1123

    Real nice couple, very friendly. Glad it went to a good home. I really treasured the last few rides in it, new each one might my last. Had to get the cash to pay the taxman, feels like I just had a visit from the reaper. Currently driving a white E150 Econoline cargo van, with some modded MGM painted factory wheels, grill, and headlight bezels. I'll post a pic tomorrow.

    What the hell is wrong with you?


    Anyway, sorry to hear that about your new taco... but you have your priorities right! Hopefully when your situation improves you can get back into one (assuming you want to). Also know you're always welcome to stick around, taco or not ;p

    So sorry to hear this. I nearly sold the Tacoma twice now. Both times I've managed to keep it with barely the shirt on my back and the truck. I'd seriously rather take a public beating with a whip than lose my truck.

    Keep your chin up and look forward to when you can get a 2012 or 2013 Taco with the improved engine and smoke the rest of us with an extra 40-50hp stock. :D

    So this family is at a restaurant and a child at the table is playing with the change on the table. Without any warning the child takes a handful of nickles and swallows about 3 of them.

    Of course the child starts turning blue and the father starts freaking out. He remembers something of first aid and starts pounding on the child's back.

    *COUGH* one nickle comes up. *Cough* another nickle, but no matter how hard the father smacks, the other one doesn't come up. Now he really starts panicking.

    Across the room a very clean cut woman with a bunch of important papers and sees what's happening. Very calmly, she stands up, neatly arranges her papers on the desk and straightens her impeccable suit. Smartly she walks over and says to the father "I've had some experience in this sort of thing, would you mind if I offered my assistance?"
    The father, sweating says "Yes of course please help my son if you can!".

    The woman, without another word, moves precisely behind the child and with him standing, grabs his belt and drops the boys pants and boxers. She reaches down between his legs and grabs his still forming man parts and begins to squeeze.

    As she does so the boys eyes bulge and with a *POP* the coin flies straight into the air and with a swift grab the woman snatches it out of the air.

    Amazed the father turns to the woman, "My god you've saved him! I've never see that technique before. You must be some amazing doctor, a trauma nurse or very experienced medic!"

    She turns to him and says "Nope...I work for the IRS".

    I was hoping it would. Had a fire guy tell it to me today. Thought I'd pass it on.

    That's not fair. I had a job where it payed me over $300 a day. My truck payment was made in 2 days work out of 21 of the month.

    Price of oil dropped like a stone, and I lost my job for 6 months and I barely scraped by working at $14 counting money in a food store. (How's that for depressing)

    Nobody knew oil prices were going to plummet. I live in Alberta, the Texas of Canada, but even more oil country. Prices have been strong since the 70's.
