Hey Burt, I'm back and good as new. Nice job getting out. Did you beat the eclipse?

From Burt on Tue, Aug 22, 2017 at 09:19:30 from

Not sure. I tried looking, but it was too bright.

From DaleG on Tue, Aug 22, 2017 at 15:41:08 from

Lol. Don't be like trump and look without wearing protective eclipse glasses!

From Burt on Tue, Aug 22, 2017 at 17:39:37 from

Haha! I actually tried looking through the tinted window in my car.

From DaleG on Wed, Aug 23, 2017 at 17:09:08 from

I wish I could see what you're asking, but I can't see now.

From Burt on Thu, Aug 24, 2017 at 12:05:23 from

Man, that was a good one.
