    Rusty, you should put the rest of the Herd on the front of that cannon and let them pull you around while you pretend to be a pirate.

    I think you wont be allowed to keep that but you sure look happy!

    Stop on by for a visit

    Looks like Rusty is still blowing coat…or maybe it’s the lousy resolution on my monitor.

    Rusty, what if that thing was a giant water cannon? Oh, the fun to be had! I hope you got that souvenir home safely!
