Every year...for over fifty years...this might be the year and they fill the stadiums every time they play.

Like, the Harlem Globetrotters of basketball entertainment fame, it's almost as if the audience is given a medicine in their beers.

Go Leafs Go...Go Leafs...Go...erm, so maybe...next season?

Cheers :)
The huge favorites are Colorado and Vegas. For what it's worth, I'd rather have the Leafs win the Cup than those two.

No audio book, sorry...I wouldn't even know how to get that accomplished.

What would be the point of this??? Read it yourself...I spent enough time writing it, why would I want to read the damn thing out loud...that's YOUR job LOL

Are you hiring a voice actor, then?  What's the rate?
Yeeaaaahhhhhh.....no. YOUR job to READ the book. Out loud if you want, your very OWN personal audio book! AND...it won't cost anything extra! BONUS!!

drumstix2112,

I am reading it. I like your sense of adventure!
I am only around the 4% mark (Kindle) but will definitely keep reading.

Remember when they gave away things for free?   You could get your entire dinner and glassware collection just by filling up at your local Sunoco Gas Station.

Great memory Lorraine.

I vaguely remember my parents and grandmother collecting and tallying 'stamps' the early 70's.

Remember the little green dinosaurs they gave out?

That, I don't remember. Sorry.

The only dinos I remember from the 70's were on Land of The Lost.   :)
You don't remember those little green dinosaurs?   Must've been from the early to mid sixties.  I think it was Sunnoco

Yep.   Those were the good old days.   Three gallons of gas for one dollar.

No maam, I don't.  I can really only remember stuff from 1969 or so.  

Now it's the other way around with gas $3+ per gallon. Will only get worse because of economics and that it's getting harder to pull oil out of the ground.

You may be recalling a promotional gift from Sinclair gas stations, as their logo is a green brontosaurus (a tie-in to the misconception 'dinosaur period compost = oil deposits').  And yes, Sinclair still has a significant presence west of the Mississippi.  I recall passing this ol' gem while cruising along the Lincoln Highway in Missouri years ago.  Sadly, it's now a liquor store (a different sort of octane!): https://goo.gl/maps/1LKeo6tbtoYXCVBt6

CORRECTION: In my above post, I referred to a classic Sinclair gas station as being alongside the Lincoln Highway (US 30), when the station is actually alongside US 24.  I've travelled enough miles on both or them, you'd think I'd know the difference by now.  My most forthright apologies if this has thrown a major kink in anyone's day.

That is good because I had some butterscotch pudding with whipped cream and granola for lunch and I thought about you.
