Talmadge,
Tell your dad "Righty tighty, Lefty Loosey" Unless you are dealing with Chrysler Products.

Roger, Bill Cosby has an answer to 'Why is there air?"
Being a PE major, he said there is air to blow up basketballs, footballs..."

Or the hoses that screw into your propane tanks!

(Do you like how I brought that back around to Airstreaming content?)

You did a GREAT job of 'bringing it back to Airstream.'
As I type this, ours is in the shop for some repairs, which include putting the new style valves on the bottles and new hoses.


Light rain here now - low of 54 here tonight - those to the north, eat your heart out!

I KNEW someone would know that answer... however, this being an AIRSTREAM forum... I presume it would be to blow up Airstream trailer tires... right?

BTW, Talmadge... you're showing your age... I think that Cosby routine was from '72 or '73...

Webster's

I was checking my handy-dandy American English dictionary the other day, and I was surprised to learn that because of constant misuse, the word "infer" now means "imply".
An example of ongoing erosion of the English language.

Okay, since we are going crazy with corrections here, you don't blow up tires, you inflate them.
An exploding tire would blow up...
Now I need to get a life, too!

Oooohhh, Terry... This IS a tough crowd! Point taken... there is air to inflate tires, not blow them up. However, since you've taken this burden on now... would you kindly explain how it is that houses burn down, but cars burn up?

OK ... then explain why we tow (or drive) our Airstreams on parkways ... and park them on driveways.

lLesson plan change--thanks!

As an English teacher of 8th grade middle school students, I think I have found tomorrow's lesson plan, thanks to all of you! What better for a Friday? I laughed and laughed as I scrolled through the thread. Maybe my students don't discuss quantum physics on a daily basis in my classroom, but they still encounter and struggle with the oddities, perplexities, and marvels of the English language, the same way we did as students years ago--and judging by this thread, still do today. Thanks again for the laughs--and a great lesson for my middle schoolers!

Handy-dandy??? That wouldn't be from one of my all time favorite shows, Blue's Clues, would it? (Or is it 'wouldn't it)? Oh well.

In reference to golf, a certain golfer prayed one night and asked the Lord if there is golf in heaven. The next day on the links, an angel of God appeared and said, "I have good news and bad news. I'll give you the good news first. Yes, there IS golf in heaven. The bad news is, you tee off at 10:30 tomorrow morning".

Hopefully he went up in a chariot of aluminum!
