Hi, it's their law, but they will usually let you pump your own motorcycle.

Do they at least let you watch?

If they pump for you...., do you at least get to finish off! or do they do that for you to?

Gemma always makes sure we get in the line with the attractive pumpers.

Murray always resents it when they ask him, "Would you like me to top it off sir?" Or dare we say it, "Fill 'er up sir?" Hmpf. Gemma always reminds Murray how nice it is he doesn't have to pump in cold or inclimate weather and how we are helping keep the nice pumpers gainfully employed. She also reminds him to say, "Thank you" after they're finished pumping.

Murray tries to ensure that we fill up at the borders of California and Washington, to keep the assistance of foreign pumpers to a minimum. He doesn't care how cheap gas is in Oregon.

The cost of pumping keeps going up. It may cost $100 or more to get pumped this summer. And yet there's no more pleasure than 50 years ago when it cost a couple of bucks.

And with that heavy trailer, a pump job only lasts 250 miles or so. I'd like a longer ride.

They give tail-gate parties a whole new meaning in WEHO.

Not to totally change the subject, but a friend of mine just told me that Elks have sex 15-20 times a night.

Aw, darn. I just joined the VFW.

Yeh, but only during a few weeks a year in the fall. And that's only the biggest, badest elk males. You need antlers. The rest of the stags get nothing (maybe a few times if they hang out at the edges) and as for the ladies, they get a lot less attention because the A males are spread pretty thin.

I'll stick with being human. Those antlers really get in the way—try driving with them or trying to get through narrow doors. US human average is 63 times/year, but an Airstream can greatly increase these numbers.

And they are top-heavy too! My neck muscles definitely aren't strong enough-- I don't work them out as much as those guys in WeHo.

Also, I'm pretty sure Airstream implies alpha male in the human social hierarchy, so we're all fine.
