    Doda, I can't tell you about 2057, but I wouldn't worry about it, since neither of us will probably still be here..............or at least I won't. Heck, I'd be 119 by then and wouldn't care.............lol

    Rick, I hear you. I can't believe all those young guys getting lucky with the teacher and then turning the teachers in.

    I still remember Miss Candy, (actual name). Wow, she was a looker all right. I'd have given my right...........uh..........toenail? lol lol

    The Mayans were certain the end of the world as we know it will occur in 2012; the 4th cleansing of the life on Earth. You needn't worry about 2057 since there won't be any of us. ;-).....Bob Dodd

    For doda:

    From API, UPI Newsroom.....

    August, 2057

    " Worlds oldest Trapshooter still active "

    Today, at the Grand American Trap shoot, held annually in Las Vegas, Mr. doda was again found on the firing line trying for that elusive first 100 straight".

    His odd method of shooting style (resting his gun on a forked pole mounted to the side of his hospital bed)is only surpassed by his relentless determination to break 100 handicap targets in a row from the 12 yard line.

    The President of the ATA, Richard M. Daley III, and the BOD, has allowed him to shoot from this yardage for the past 18 years since there are only 33 other shooters signed up to participate in the Grand American Handicap. This is the largest crowd of shooters at this event in recent history.

    The ATA claims that the shotshell law recently signed into law by President Natasha Obama has been very difficult on their membership drive. One top shooter was heard to comment " These SOY pellets just don't seem to break targets hard!" He was removed from the competition by a force of ATF agents, and most likely will not return.

    The Mayor of Las Vegas, Wayne Newton, speaking from his cosmetic surgeons recovery room, had these words of praise for doda......"Huh"

    Known as the "Worlds Oldest Active Trapshooter", doda was heard to whisper past his oxygen mask..."I'm not goin' till I'm good and ready, or my Marlin trap gun breaks down, whichever happens first"

    Well, we certainly wish him the best of luck, and hope his dream is kept alive till 2058 because he missed his first 6 targets as we speak.

    Anyone wishing to visit him, may do so by traveling to the Great Salt Lake fishing and swimming facility, turn North just past the third A-bomb crater, and then back West through the broken windmill park to his home at Red Dust Rest Home. He shares a room with Al Gore, who can't breath too well since this "Global Warming" thingy.

    For the API, I'm Geraldo Rivera reporting..........

    Just for fun, Danny

    Doda, I'll spring for that round if I'm still able.

    Haux, you forgot to mention that johnny and his dad were locked up and never heard of again, no lawyer, no trial thanks to dubya's patriot act and all for protecting you. Now, the supreme court saved johnny and his dad...Mike
