Hank Aron (86) just died after second dose of vaccine. First on Jan 5th then second dose and died few days after. Now Google is saying it had nothing do with the vaccine. Of course they are going to say that because Google is a liar. I think we all know why.

The girl here at work said it knocked out fauci for 24hrs. Kinda like a coma. Said he woke up and then told media he feels great now.

My mom's 83 and ready for it. After hearing about hank and fauci idk if taking it is best for her. Her doctor will tell her it's safe but, im not sure if it is. Some people here in town have had the first shot but, have been told they're stopped on the second shot due to people who have had bad reactions to it. So there's that too. And the videos of them fake injections on people too. So yeah I'm skeptical at the least.

Man I was really looking forward to this but. I get it. It's not all about me. Just sucks! Stay safe Brothers It's a cruel world.

My father-in-law and his mom have both got them. She is in her 90's, he is in his 70's. Thus far, no side effects. She got hers when they first rolled out. But she is also from the generation that has been through this kind of stuff more than once. He got his within the last month. It's a crap shoot. I know I don't want it. If I am sick, maybe. But being healthy I don't see any reason for it.

Kinda expected this, but it IS rather dissappointing given all the work, time, and money ive put into mine so i could actually drive from NC to TX



Me neither. They can go to hell with their snake oil cureall

Vince,
If you want to make the trip regardless of the meet/rally being CNX, I would be more than happy to take you and your traveling companions out for a full blown Texas BBQ dinner at a little place I found that has the best brisket I've ever wolfed down.

Appreciate the shout out !

I haven't committed to going for multiple reasons but it sure sounds interesting.

It also sounds so simple - Dood, it's in your state!

:D

Yeah, so are Dumas and El Paso. I am in Houston. :p


Sidebar:
My Mom had the 1st shot but has not got the 2nd yet.

No ill effects I know of - she is 85 this year.

If its offered I would take it.


Back to the topic -

I'd like to go, tho. Wafflin.

:)

I would imagine Paladin would be in, and I'm sure we could wrassle the other two as well. Never met anyone in Texas who doesn't like good brisket!


I love a good brisket. I also love a BIG chicken fried steak too. Mashed taters and homemade rolls. Mmmm

Announcing the first annual Square Body Forum truck rally to be held in Sanger, Texas 16-18 April, 2021.

Paladin, Hot Rod PC, and I have talked about this, and it's now time to pull the trigger and see how much interest there is from all forum members.

Sanger is right on I-35 at exit 478, 25 miles South of the Texas/Oklahoma line. It is 12 miles North of Denton, where I-35 splits into I-35E going thru Dallas, and I-35W going thru Ft. Worth.

Sanger has an old city square that is ideal for a small truck show.
They were still filming scenes for "Walker, Texas Ranger" when we bought our property NW in 1996.

We have a brand new, just opened Holiday Inn Express hotel, plus another locally owned motel. There are 3 RV parks in the immediate area, plus numerous hotels/motels in Gainesville 22 miles North, plus a bunch more South in Denton.

There is a great restaurant 1/2 of a city block from the square called Babe's Chicken House; a BBQ place just East of the square (walking distance), and several Mexican, American and Italian food eateries plus several typical Interstate fast food franchises.

City Ordinance states that no open containers of alcohol be visible during the rally while on the square. (What you have in your insulated mug is your business, but be intelligent about it)!

No formal agenda yet-my ideas are:

Friday PM --get together on the square to meet in person.

Saturday--Truck show on the square. Lots of local support in a little town like this, so expect a good local turn out.

Sunday- Swap meet and more telling of lies, then depart for home.




Considerations taken into account for the date selection:

Easter in 2021 is 4 April.

Pate Swap meet usually starts on the last Thursday in April. 2021; should be the 29th.

I'm starting a list of forum members who plan on attending. Updated 27 Jul '20.

That sure would be a long drive in a square. I wouldn't drive it because of the distance. Maybe there will be a meeting closer to you sometime that would be easier.
