Re: New to Me Model 10E Serial Number 1077

Very cool.

Re: Movies you'll watch every time list

Any Clint Eastwood movie.
Especially Good, Bad And The Ugly. Recently I watched the first 4 Dirty Harry movies. Will watch Dead Pool today.
Caddyshack
Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World
My two favorite John Wayne movies are The Searchers and Stagecoach. John Ford is a legend.
Watched both recently. Again!

Re: Caster Upgrade
