based on where the tire is in the rear wheel well, the waistline is about at 4'6-8". on flat feet maybe puts her at 5'4 or so. not sure if that qualifies as a midget?

According to the ADA code, 4'10" is the threshold (or would it be ceiling?) of what constitutes a "little person" or dwarf, though I still refer to them as midgets because its more fun. Also, dwarves have disproportionally small limbs, normal sized craniums and unfortunately short life spans, whereas "midgets" are just proportionately smaller.


Wee Man is a dwarf
Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) is a dwarf
Tom Cruz is a midget


The Jenifer Aniston doppelganger in the sighting photo is an average sized woman, though I doubt any woman would appreciate being called "average", but we'll keep that between us.

Thought I would throw a couple pics in. The first two were sent to me by a buddy down in the San Marcos, TX. I haven't checked but I thought the green 90 might be Bill's? Then there is a pic from the catalog of FreeFly Apparel (same truck that was on the Garden & Gun cover a few months back. Finally are the shameless plugs... a pic of my 90 in the YETI Coolers booth at a trade show, and a pic my buddy took of my 110 a few days ago. Cheers! On a side note, FreeFly Apparel makes some ridiculously comfortable clothes and the owners are super nice.

Spotted Cellulararrest in the parking lot of Leary's in NBPT about a week or two maybe ago. Was too busy with trying to grab pizzas for the kids to wait in the parking lot to say hello.

It poured early that evening, hope you weren't caught in that topless....

Hah! Sitting in the back wolfing down Otto's mashed potato pizza I'm sure. I had the bikini on (haven't had the top on in months!) so it's not too bad when it pours.

I work just downtown in the Tannery and just bought a place on the corner of Kent and High St. so be sure to say hi if you see me again!

The car used in the Freefly Apparel mag is the same one used in the June edition front cover of Garden & Gun

I am sure most don't care much for the US off road mags but I've been reading them since I was young (I used to read them while my dad was buying stuff and shooting the shit with Curt LeDuc at his tiny Jeep shop way back when).

Anyway, cool Series IIA on the cover of October's Four Wheeler:

Yup - reading it now with dinner - Matthew Jackson's and his '60 Series.

Rovers North got a mention too.

I love the look of the faded blue and how one side is down to bare aluminum.
