    Well, darn, I don't know who Clay is, and I think Sugar Ray is a boxer but when I googled Sugar Ray all I come up with is some fancy musician!

    Either way, I think the analogy is wrong. It is not...

    If it is hot, they get stinky and full of fly maggots fast so it depends on your fortitude. They can become nasty in one outing.

    In the winter here they last forever.

    The capacity of mine is 3.6 cubic feet. It is about right for general, personal use...I'm guessing it holds about 20 ducks.

    I just went to bring the truck in to get looked at, and the light is no longer on.

    The dog seems to like retrieving, it just doesn't want to come back. Sounds like standard puppy stuff.

    I'd work on obedience---getting high compliance with "sit" and "here." Also keep him jazzed...

    We have a mechanic that we trust, I plan to bring the truck in there tomorrow morning and have it checked out. I hope they can give me the error message code and report back.

    I don't know the answer, but I would be more concerned about the effect of the radiation from the X-rays on the fetuses.
