Just got off the wireless with The Impudent.
He said it would be unlikely that any of us would be able to pick up a truck, whether it were a pickup or a flatbed.

And yes, being the Impudent, he still insists on using the subjunctive.
What subjunctive?
It is a verb “mood.”

“The subjunctive in English is used to form sentences that do not describe known objective facts, rather, such things as wishes or hypothetical suppositions...”

In this case, whether it “were” instead of the vernacular “was.”

Don’t blame me.

It was The Impudent.
On the wireless.
How much is shipping on this the wireless?

I just got off of 10 meter with Theimpudent, he was using a new paddle and I'm not good enough to copy what the shipping quote was.

Ha!

That mention of the paddle and shipping is gonna give some people the wrong idea.
Why, they're gonna be up a creek!

I had one of these when I lived in Silverton:

‘64 GMC V6 that had been a Forest Service truck.
Man, I hauled a lot of fire wood in that thing.

I sold it to a friend, Mike White, who owned a trash hauling service named, no kidding, “White Trash.”

I’ve been driving Jeep Cherokees ever since.
Timeless looking design. Or, maybe it reminds me of how short of time I have on earth.

I really LOVE the looks of this one. A cool looking Dodge Power Wagon, a 4WD truck that was produced from 1945 to 1981, and changed nameplates under the Dodge Ram from 2005 – 2013. There's just something genuine and authentic about these old trucks that look like trucks, tough and reliable.....
