    My new Rand's hat is on the way...

    Well, I think I've seen and read it all. From quality hats to someone in a pith helmet being arrested in his kitchen. Oh, almost forgot a fella dressed as Tiger off of Winne the Pooh knocked out on the kitchen floor. I can now say I've witnessed the most bizarre thread derailment in history...

    Starting to look for my first Double for Buffalo and need some advice from folks smarter than me...
