Aside from the plethora of information, there are posts where I have damn near pissed myself laughing.  Great way to unwind after a weird/ crazy kind of day.   :cheers:

:(  I'm not a hat person and all the shirts are too big

I am considering getting a subscription though.  I just want to pay off the visa before I put anything else on it.

Holy crap Frosty!! 

I'll have to find something that I guess is close to fitting... maybe just a t-shirt that I can sleep in.   I don't think I could manage wearing a size XL or XXL hoodie..

What the heck is a performance shirt?  They're at least closest in size at a medium.  Are there any pictures of these things?

Moe and I are working on doing up a "Gals of Army.ca" Calendar as a fundraiser ...

Are you in for the month of September??

We figure Mike (who is also the editor and 'pic proofreader') is sold out of them already ...

Geez, Vern, I forgot about that!  We were starting with the "Guys of Army.ca" until a picture of a certain someone in chaps got lost on a cell phone.

Okay, guess I gotta work on a good picture.......

That's okay, Lil_T.  I'm a bit on the vertically challenged side myself.  ;)

Besides, next to Bruce, everyone is short!
