I thought everyone would get a kick out of a recent happening. I bought a  lawnmower and loaded it into my smart. When the kid helping me load the mower saw me pull up he couldn’t help but chuckle. When I got out he was incredulous. He asked me if I was serious about trying to load it. I said let’s give it a try.

I lowered the passenger seat and we angled it in. The box was 44”x24”x19.5”, it was tight but it fit. The helper was shocked and said he was going to tell all his coworkers. We had a bit of fun with the outcome and then I drove off.

These puppies hold more than you think.

Hey gang,

It's been a long time since our last get together. Now that spring has sprung it's time for the smarts to come out of hibernation.

So I have two questions. First, our meets were dwindling off so does anyone still want to get together? Second, if so please vote on a time. Friday night, Saturday, Saturday night, or Sunday morning?

What say you?

I'm sending this message to let everybody in our group know that i have sold my smart and no longer will be attending the sunday brunches which i really enjoyed. With that being said I will be selling my tires and rims that were on it for $800 obo. They will fit anybodys smart. black/black or yellow/black. Tires are in great condition also i have the floor mats that are from weathertech in black. I will give them with the tires. It has been 5 years with my smart and i will miss it. Hope everybody has a great Holiday season. BTW you can still receive your 1/2 price discount on washes.

Mark & Karen,

Thanks for your thoughts. It did turn out to be a very good Veteran's Day.

Sorry I missed the meet yesterday. I assumeed the meeting was today input it on the wrong day.

I planned to shake your hand in person today and thank you for your service to our country. However, I'll do it electronically- Thank you. Have a great Veterans Day.

Mark & Karen

We can always try a Friday or Saturday night. I was thinking it might be fun (especially in the summer) to drop in on a local car show. A bunch of old classic cars having some fun and then 10 smarts show up to shake things up.  

If enough folks are up for it I can organize a Saturday this winter. Like cliff, Sundays aren't the best for Karen & I.

Speak up if Saturday works.

My new job requires me to work every Sunday so until I find a better job Rick and I can't attend the monthly meets.
