I've got to admit that I was shocked how nice Cleveland was, though my son had been talking it up. That fact that he had local knowledge was a big plus, and he had learned the parts of Cleveland...

Hell, my kids come home once a month, and park in the carport in my parking space while I'm at work. When they're sleeping the next day, I'm scraping frost off of my windshield!

If a kid riding on her family's wants to jump from a moving boat to a dock, that's on her. If she blows out a knee, she'll file it on her parents' insurance.

As an employer who spends a lot of time worrying about slip and fall accidents, that's the dumbest workplace practice I've seen in a long time. Entertaining, but dumb.

If you're willing to drive 15 miles, Outer Banks Boat Harbor on Harker's Island Road is hard to beat for trailer service. They do a lot of it, and prices are reasonable.

I'll never buy another three-ball receiver . I haven't used a 1-7/8" ball in 20 years, and I don't want the possibility of attaching a 2" hitch on the 1-7/8". I'd buy a two-way if I could find one.
