Who is the Air Forum Member on the airstream website?

Greetings

I was just on Airstream.com and noticed that in one of the pictures there is an Air sticker on the window of an Airstream with a man and woman outside talking. Is that a member here?

Since that is a commercial website, I think that probably everyone you see there are models.

Darn, with the "air" sticker I thought it might be someone here and with that kind of influence, perhaps get parts discounts!

I had noticed that photo, myself. I'm not holding my breath for discounts.

I do take it as a recognition of the forums. They do read them and participate here sometimes.

You mean they hired models? They probably could have gotten some of us for free. It is nice that we got the plug, though. I don't see any WBCCI stuff in any of the website photos.

True, but by hiring models they get good looking people.

Using us, probably not so much. Example:



Me during AC replacement.

Now really, which makes you want an Airstream.

Oh, i don't know, after a month with the Bambino, a guy who can replace the A/C without denting the roof looks pretty good to me...

Hey, vswingfield, speak for yourself! It just happens that some of us are knockdown gorgeous! And my dog is one of those people....

Yes, Airstream could save some money on models using some of us in their ads. As opposed to the attractive young couple sipping on sport water bottles after their bike ride, they might well end up with two old fat guys sipping on the remnants of a twelve pack of Milwaukee's Best Light.

I do want to make it clear that I am speaking entirely for myself.

I have met forum members that are lovely people, and some of them are not dogs.

No Milwaukees Best for me. But I love Old Milwaukee [not light]. But I would not look too good in one of those bubble bath ads. My Good Lord, the thought even gives me the creeps. Sal.

Keeping an eye cornered on LawChick . . for if she drops the drink and slips that little S&W out of the garter holster to hold bead on a legless, slithering reptile then best to be out of the line-of-fire. Make tracks.

(I slipped, I said I wouldn't, sorry, couldn't resist ).

It's not snakes per se (only crazy people "like" snakes, the rest of us tolerate them more and less) it's that anyone who can snap shoot a moving target with a snubbie at 30-yards bears watching. And were my calf in the way I've a hunch she could lightning-calculate the angle of deflection through that muscle for the kill.

Now I'll always have to detour around Arkansas.

I don't see the garter holster???? as its obvious she is proud of her petite figure. Don't you think the S&W would be in the hand bag? She is keeping it just below her right hand and the lid app rears not to be tied closed. And I don't believe this is LAW CHICK? Maybe Charlie's Angles! Looks like 1971 to me. Definitely before URBAN COWBOY days.

It's a 22 buried in the deviled eggs.

Yeah, that is a 1965 or '66 Mercury with a same year SS.

Since that's 46-years ago it would have to be LawChicks grandmother as a young woman. Great-grandad watching for the lightning to strike.

Still, with Southern women -- their male relatives and progenitors having seen military service back to The War of Jenkins' Ear -- usually know how to shoot. Probably describe themselves, as, "okay", or "pretty good" (which up North would mean expert if not marksman for a man), and the special recipes passed down for generations among the ladies on powder brand, grain count, and semi-wadcutter versus hollow-point are secret even from the men around them.

In this state was that 1980's advertising business about, "Don't Mess With Texas", actually adapted from a century of smokeless powder firearms-qualified ladies in muttered asides in the best redneck stories where "don't mess with exe's" in the side-splitting but sobering punch line to who's-got-the-best-scar story after the first sixteen beers.

But don't be surprised that the '80's campaign was about littering. Ya'll go home, but we live here. When Lady Bird gave ol' Lyndon the look inabout 1965 he (literally, it's a true story) gathered the Democratic National Committee, the Senate leadership, the House Dems and the entire White House staff in a too small room and told 'em in no uncertain words that this Highway Beautification Act would be passed. Pronto. (There's a finality to the correct pronunciation of that word that old Texans have mastered).

So I hope with the above context that all will appreciate that I described six impossible things our LawChick no doubt learned at grandma's knee, for, to

1] Take the head off a moving snake
2] At thirty yards
3] With a snubbie
4] Through a major leg muscle
5] With an accurately calculated angle-of-bullet-deflection
6] After poppin' leather; all in 3/10's of a second

is not outside possiblity with what Yanks too willingly believe is just demure and soft-spoken.

So . . if they is serious 'bout snakes, you, too, like great-grandaddy messin' with the fire pit will be a'watchin' that lady from an eye corner. If the gaze locks and the pupil dilates . . best to know which direction to dive.

(I sure hope this makes that lady laugh. It's a really long way around Arkansas from here. You know, when she says that this is my state . . . ?)
