    You guys crack me up... It's all good, I'm hoping my custom order arrives here before "it" does... I'm confident it will. Y'all have a great evening now, hear?

    The blob has been sent. It's a very short trip from here to mr grabby. San Antonio to Austin. So It should be there pretty hastily.

    Got a lot of nice stuff, i really liked the fender heavy and the dawg picks sounded great on my mandolin so I was greedy and took them all.

    Thanks guys I appreciate it

    On to yet another stop, our Blob of Picks makes it's way from seaboard to seaboard to still another seaboard and points in between. Steadily morphing at every stop.

    Each recipient never knowing what might greet them.

    Nearing the end of this journey on lap two of the Great American Pick It Forward Race of the century, our intrepid Blob of Picks picks up steam instead of rolling, lightly into the station on it's final stop.

    Will the Blob of Picks be whittled down during it's third lap of the country? Or will it continue to grow as it has from the moment it saw life in this country?

    Only time will tell. And how much stuff some people will come up with to throw in there.

    The Blob of Picks travels on to the finish soon as teams prepare for the 3rd lap of the country. Strategies planned. Items contemplated (along with numerous navels). And not just a few Doritos consumed.

    Soon, all eyes will be on Namely, wanting to see the final outcome of lap two of the Blob of Picks in hopes of the knowledge helping in lap three.

    But have no fear of the impending tale. RB has it covered for this old, dusty trail. - Burma Shave

    Your time is coming. And you best be prepared. Steve Mcqueen learned that the hard way. Just because some old man couldn't leave well enough alone.:D

    Break out the sandpaper. And I can tell you that going up to 2000 grit can make that pick shine like it has a finish on it.;)

    You have to upload it to a website such as imgur.com first, after that you can post it to here. Or use a mobile phone with Internet access and post from there.
