Good goin' Tim! Hate to tell you there's a big rectangular hole in your door ... ... we can fix that for you if you'd like ... .

For non-VAP listeners (all 2 or 3 of you), Tim, Rob & Colin can't just be satisfied with being Airstream millionaires. They l-u-v exercising door-within-a-door snobbishness!

Wonderful article, Tim. I can hear your familiar voice as you chat with the reporter. And when you discover those Photoshop key strokes, cc me.

LOL, thanks everyone!

I was able to obtain a much better quality PDF. I posted it here.

This one also contains a little blurb on the history of Airstream.

They took some great shots.
Did neighbors that disliked the mess, suddenly become old friends?

Looks good Tim.

Gosh Tim, that was kind of you to let them use a photo of your father. I know from your voice that you are far younger than the person in the picture. I've always envisioned you to be more in your late late forties to mid fifties.

Great article. Lots of fun reading it. Thanks for sharing it, and thanks for getting the word out to ever more people.

Barry
