    So here goes:



    Yes, but a fastener to what? (This is too easy)
    Looks like a tupperware fastener, I have spent the last week getting all too familiar with those!

    Five for six. Told you they were easy.

    Not a socket wrench, at least per se.

    P.S. I don't miss those fasteners one bit.

    Hmmm, well that one did have me wondering.....

    I've discovered there are like 40 something on an LT and I've had to remove and replace the tupperware twice in the past week! Next time it stays off! Ha Ha!

    (international man of mystery!) Has a nice ring to it, don't you think>

    PS this is actually really funny and somewhat apropos as having grown up living overseas, my friends and I would often refer to ourselves as "Internationals" when the kids state-side would give us a hard time about talking about all the stuff we did in such and such a country. They couldn't grasp that for us it was just like when they talked about doing such and such "in the woods back of Joe's house" it was just that our frame of references were more wide spread.
    I guess they saw it as bragging, but for us it was perfectly natural. I learned pretty quick to be careful how i talked around the "homeies" (as we called them for lack of a better term) during home leave summers as a teen. Ha Ha!

    Incredible piece of luck

    I just happened to be in the vicinity today when the Harley Davidson promotional train came through. Here's the caboose coming down a hill to the station.

    Then I was able to get this shot

    One of the flatcars with the crated HD's on them. Sometimes you are just in the right place at the right time.

    On my way to the train station....

    I saw my neighbors leaving on their HD. As you can see they are not the ATGATT types. Most people wouldn't put their Harley out in that much snow! I think they may be highcentered!

    Thanks

    This week was the excuse to buy that macro lense I have been lusting after. New Nikon 105mm. Just learning to use it. I already know I need a better tripod. Why does it always work that way in photography?
