I had a dream last night I was in London. I got a on a train and noticed a fellow in a green sweater who I recognized immediately as Dillocrafter. Somehow I'd seen a picture of him and distinctly remembered he looked like Charlie Sheen.

So I sat down next to him and said. "I think I know what you'd like to talk about." He says, in an exasperated voice, "NOT MARRIAGE! No way!" He then tells me all about how his marriage is horrible for a few minutes. Then I said, "Um, no...I meant Studebakers." Well he brightened up a little and we chatted about him being there for business and I was there just sightseeing.

I think I spend too much time on this forum. [:0]

Wow, Scott. I don't exactly know how to respond here, since we apparently already chatted in your dream. I guess I don't have anything to add to that. :D

Funny you should mention that. I had a dream last might that I was driving around in a green/white '56 Golden Hawk with OD trans and floor shift. I've never even seen a green/white '56J!
Dreams, what weird things they can be!:D

never seen a green/white 56J? ISTM that that was a very common color combination. I love the Ceramic Green BTW. It tends just a little toward olive, looks fantastic when the light hits it.

I wish that was my car; I think that was the one that we got from WV with the 3-speed that went to Belgium or something. I don't think that's exactly the right color either, but close. Mine was all green when I got it and didn't get much better after that; never got to the "laying down fresh paint" stage on the exterior.

Your right, wrong Golden hawk, is that the one that went to Scott, one number off from yours ? (No, forget it, Scott got the Mocca and white one) I think ? :)

No, Scott, I'm afraid it was just a strange dream that you had. You probably looked at some forum messages too late last night, after eating pizza or something out of the ordinary.

I've never been told that I look like Charlie Sheen, either with or without my beard. But, since we are already so far off topic, I can tell you that my pet cockatiel has often been mistaken for other male cockatiels, some of whom are famous in the bird world. ;)

I don't know what you think, but I just don't see a resemblance.

However, if anyone knows any available, attractive, intelligent woman out there who loves Studebakers, feel free to put her in touch with me (Oh, and Birdie says he wants a female cockatiel, but I've ruled that out).

Reminds me of this joke about birds:

A lady goes to her priest one day and tells him. "Father, I have a problem. I have two female parrots, but they only know how to say one thing." "What do they say?" the priest inquired. They say, "Hi, we're hookers! Do you want to have some fun?"

"That's obscene!" the priest exclaimed. Then he thought for a moment. "You know," he said, "I may have a solution to your problem. I have two male talking parrots, which I have taught to pray and read the Bible. Bring your two parrots over to my house, and we'll put them in the cage
with Francis and Peter.

My parrots can teach your parrots to praise and worship, and your parrots are sure to stop saying ... that phrase in no time." "Thank you," the woman responded, "this may very well be the solution."

The next day, she brought her female parrots to the priest's house. As he ushered her in, she saw that his two male parrots were inside their cage holding rosary beads and praying. Impressed, she walked over and placed her parrots in with them.

After a few minutes, the female parrots cried out in unison: "Hi, we're hookers!
Do you want to have some fun?" There was stunned silence.

Shocked, one male parrot looked over at the other male parrot and exclaimed, "Put the beads away, Frank. Our prayers have been answered!"

Bob,

That joke also came to mind when I read Paul's message. If you want more of these drop me a line and I can direct you to a local running club that has bunches.

I saw Frank today and he was amazed at how you loaded the Lark in the rain on Friday. Give me a call when you get back to Virginia and perhaps I can catch up with you to show you my fleet.
