Plain and simple.

"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your council or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Nice Pic! It could go replace the logo on the left side of the screen! My last 2 trips that I posted about were scrap aluminum from a chicken n waffle stand that covered a catering wagon. I tried to do the pictures but had trouble with the camera. Who likes chicken n waffles anyway? Not many in AZ evidently!

I bought a dinged up copper pot at a yard sale for 25 cents and scrapped it for $2.25 and I also had bought electrical wire for yard lights for $2 at a yard sale and got $7 scrap out of it.
