    I look out the back window, when I can't see the red colour of the trucks anymore it's time to call the boys. ARE YOU READY TO ROCK AND ROLL!!

    Heck once the Bobcat & truck crew DID rock and roll. . .They dumped the Bobcat off the ramps loading it. It landed on its side. (Little Bobbi needed a nap)
