    Question Anybody STILL active in PA?

    It's like "Tumblin' Tumbleweeds" in here!
    We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other. - John Adams, 2nd U.S. President -

    It's decent-sized, since it take up two building on the Washington County Fairgrounds. There's definitely some FUDD to wade through, since Jedediah's gonna bring his well-worn, but PRICELESS (which means, WAAAAAY overpriced ) "thutty-thutty" to sell... but I've found the ammo deals to be the best thing about that show. Even during the dark early days of the Obama Insurrection, ammo could be had - had in bulk - and at better than store prices there.

    I always manage to find some good surprises there, too. Take a friend who'll appreciate it, and you'll have a good day. Be sure to hit up Shorty's Hotdogs in Wolfdale, just a mile or so south of the fairgrounds for lunch - but remember; he ONLY takes cash! If you're stuck with the wife & kids, send them next door to the PA Trolley Museum. That'll occupy THEM for a few hours, while you get some SERIOUS work done!

    Definitely from the better end of the state!

    I'd not planned on going no, will check the date and see tho. The Trolley Museum is a great place to take the kids and grandkids. They have the only remaining example of a Butler Harmony Short Line trolley left as it had broken down some miles away from the main car barn. The day they went out of business, they gathered them all together and set fire to them.

    Came out in theaters exactly ONE week before I was born.

    I even named my mid-life-crisis-on-wheels after it.
