    Sweet Dreams

    I was born one year too late. When I took Drivers Ed in high school we learned in a car of some sort with an automatic. The class before us got to split their time between a car with an auto and an IH Scout II with a stick. I was so disappointed. I was really looking forward to driving that Scout! So I had had to learn to drive a stick on my own as well. And I went through the IH addiction. (But that's another story. If I ever win the lottery though, I'll have another International in the stable. Addictions are like that. We here on CC know about addiction!)

    Maybe it didn't have to be you. But it was important that somebody the dog loved was there. Hard as it is.
  3. I guess I'm just an old fart, because what stands out to me is the lack of Monty Python contenders in this list, like "Life of Brian" or "Search for the Holy Grail". I also have a soft spot for "The Full Monty". (Which of course had nothing to do with Monty Python, but still a favorite of mine.)

    Check this out.

    I don't know. I look at this and am reminded of that old adage, "Just because you CAN do something, doesn't mean you SHOULD."

    On a positive note, Amazon is dropping prices on long sleeve t's, sweatshirts and hoodies. I was just getting ready to resubmit some hoodies and caught the change in policy that came about Jan. 30th. They will be doing the change themselves on existing designs, on a rolling basis. So I don't know for sure how long it will take to show up. But it's coming. The price on hoodies will drop from $32.48 to $25.05. As pissed as I am at Amazon over the difficulties getting our designs approved, I have to give them credit for this change. It's always nice to save a few bucks. Short-sleeve t's will go up in price. But we don't have any of those available yet anyway.

    I just got off the phone with someone at Amazon who I take to be reasonably high-level. And I pretty much hung up on him, because he was just wasting my time. I don't want anyone thinking that I've just gotten lazy with this. Since the beginning, it's been hit-and-miss in regards to getting our CC designs approved. The very same designs have been both accepted and rejected. Sometimes I can sneak something through, but the vast majority of the time I get shot down and have to start the process all over again. So far we don't have any t-shirts, and there are still a few hoodies that I want to make available. That may, or may not, EVER happen. But I'm going to keep trying. The most those dumb@sses can do is shut down my Merch account. Even if we reach that extreme, it shouldn't affect the CC designs that are already listed in the Amazon catalog. I still love the idea of using Amazon for our shirts. It's probably the most convenient way to make them available. It's just been much more of an ordeal getting the designs accepted than I ever dreamed it could be. If at any point something else gets accepted, I'll be sure to let the club know.

    Bought myself something I have wanted awhile:

    I love plasma cutters. I got to run a big twin table unit in a factory years ago. The speed and precision just amazed me! They let me nest the parts on the steel sheets, but they never taught me how to design the parts though. That looks like a really nice toy, if you don't have to fight the programming too much.
  8. Darn you, Darren. You got me! I actually googled that. Now I feel like an idiot. What makes it worse is that I LOVE that movie. We even have a red Swingline stapler in the house!

    One of our own is down

    Abby, the extent of our loss is exceeded only by your own. But thanks so much for keeping us updated throughout. Don was always in our thoughts and prayers. Condolences to you and the rest of the family.

    Thanks for the link. I think I'm interested, whether the dress comes with that or not! I just tried your CC search myself on a couple different devices. I can't duplicate what you came up with. Amazon's system must be having a bad day. But it sure is good for a laugh! (Maybe if you had the right shoes...)

    I've occasionally bought running vehicles. That's a problem I know how to fix!

    Excellent. I take it you're happy! Feedback on Amazon is always appreciated. Not necessary, but appreciated. Any design submitted has 180 days to sell. If it hasn't sold at least once in that amount of time, Amazon removes it from their catalog. Anytime I see feedback has been left, I know that particular design is "safe" and should stay in the Amazon catalog forever. Yesterday I submitted the hoodie designs without the ".com" again. We'll see if they are accepted this time around. Just a reminder for anybody looking for CC apparel. Go to Amazon and search for "Comanche Club". If you don't put it in quotes, all kinds of unrelated products will show up in your search results.
  13. You just couldn't help yourself, could you Neal?

    scam or not...

    I can't help but think of Crocodile Dundee's quote, "You call that a knife? This is a knife!"

    My tailgate bushings?

    Same here. I'd rather spend more money for something that will last longer.
