Out of the Blue

So okay, the other shoe has dropped on what has so far been a relatively mild summer here in the northeast US, and it's now somewhere in the neighborhood of one million degrees with a thousand percent humidity. loony has already alluded to the fact that none of us are making it down to Texas for QuakeCon this year, but this really does give the impression that Texas has moved up to us. On the other hand, the weather here is supposed to break on Friday, but will remain in the 90s in Dallas/Mesquite, which is a cruel trick for anyone heading down to the event from these parts, or maybe this is just mother nature providing a graceful transition period?

Well, an hour and half before bidding closes, but no bids. I wonder why... doesn't everyone have $100K lying around?
PzKpfw III "This particular tank was recovered in one of the Eastern Europe battlefields."
If this thing was on the Eastern Front, its crew must have seen some bitter fighting.

Maybe James Garner will buy it to replace his Sherman!
