Re: A milestone day...

My Wife thinks this is a really cheap hobby, Told her I paid 200.00 for the dash 9 and the cars are 25.00 each. Told my kids if I die don't let her sell them. She will sell the trailer full for 300.00. Only 2 more years and 50 big ones married, and I only wanted to leave for 47.
