The captors grab the French spy, take him to the next room and tie his hands behind a chair.They then proceed to torture him for 2 hours before he finally cracks, answers all questions and gives up all of his secrets.

The captors then grab the German spy. They tie his hands behind the chair in the next room too and torture him for 4 hours before he finally cracks and tells them what they want to know.

They then grabbed the Italian spy. Once again, they tie his hands behind the chair and begin torturing.4 hours go by and the spy isn’t talking. Then 8 hours, then 16 and after 24 hours they give up and throw him back into the cell.

The German and French spy are impressed and ask him how he managed to not talk.

The Italian spy says, ” I wanted to, but I couldn’t move my hands.”

No sir. It pushed the bed on the passenger side down aboot an inch or 2. I was already passively shopping for another truck. It still runs good, with good air and heat, so I don't have to buy right now while prices have been artificially inflated.

My biopsy came back clear, I got my first round of immunizations again (polio, hep a/b, tetanus, etc), AND I got the certification to return to work signed! I'm FINALLY done with this cancer business! Hardest year of my life by far but I'm going to be back out on the road in just a week or two!

Congrats, Horse.

Now you can get back to rolling around the country, seeing your herd of women, 1-2 per city, and rebuilding your stamina.
