Near the Rome dump out the road that runs by the rock store (well..the OLD rock store before it blew up)...about 2-3 miles on your right was an older place that re-chromed bumpers. I haven't been out there in years....used to date a girl out that-a-way but we're no longer going steady....

Good Luck!!......

I was sitting there asking myself; Self, how in the heck do you blow up a rock store?!?!?!.

As I was reaching for the reply button to ask you that, I watched the answer form out of the fog in my mind . . . :


" ~~~~ Probably with DYNAMITE - stupid ~~~~~"

It is good to know a couple of those old brain sells still hit a lick every once in a while.

Actually, the store had a gas leak and somebody was there inspecting it when the explosion occurred.

The roof of the store ended up across the street and nothing was left afterwards, as I live a mile from the store - saw it all.

Nobody was hurt though...

and that, my friends iz ...."Believe It Or Not"...and now a word from our sponsor....Ford Motor Company - always First On Race Day....

Yea, but I'll bet the guy that was there inspecting it had to wash himself off from the waist down.

Hi there ole' buddy - I guess you could be right; in this day and age they might have gone out-of-business. HP is about to lay me off too - they have found they think they can get the same quality of support that I've been giving for 12 years by sending my computer support questions to India to support AMERICAN enterprises......that's where I've BEEN for the past 5 weeks teaching HP employees in Bangalore India how to do my job....

Anybody in Rome need a TRUCK-DRIVER?!?!....(I still have my CDL..)...

Whew!! -- hoo works longer hours; you or me?!?....I left the house this morning at 4AM to get here at 5AM and you've already answered this email before 7!!....

Hoping to come to Rome pretty soon and meet you and the little lady. As I've just gotten back from India, I'll need a few weeks to "recuperate". Let me know if you hear of any car shows coming to town - this'd be good weather to have one...
