Shadow said... bought the bullet hole car for....fond memories?! Looking at that hole everyday would give me the creeps.

While I hope that is the last time anyone ever takes a shot at me, it wasn't the first time. Not by the total of your fingers and toes, doubled, and more.

From steamy jungles of southeast asia to the jungle of a modern American ghetto. I've had more than my fair share of "close calls".

I've been shot (thank god for Kevlar) and I have shot back, very, very accurately.

This is my original "One-Nine" and it is in great shape. The mileage is high but the price was cheap and the "Mau'i cruiser" I had before was on its last legs.

Its funny. I drive between 75,000 to 90,000 miles a year in my cab but I only put about 2,000 miles a year on my POV. This baby is gonna be around a loooong time.

It's amazing that you put that many miles on your cab. That's a lot of trips around this little rock. LOL.

I used to do the Silicon Valley commute back in the day. I sure don't miss the driving.

And your car is beautiful. And seeing the bullet hole every day would remind me to feel lucky.

I have a lot of contact with police officers where I work. I depend on them for safety; they depend on me for strong coffee in the middle of the night.

I would never tell them this, but I cringe when I hear them swapping stories. I keep a straight face, whether they are talking among themselves or telling the story directly to me.

I know these guys, if they thought they could make me faint, they would all try to outdo each other and take bets who could make me pass out first.
