Hey guys we spotted a Bald White Eagle (sorry I couldn't resist Grin Grin Grin) today (which is great because I love the bald Eagle bird). It was headed southbound on I-75 in Florida at mile marker 310. It was a good looking Eagle. Anybody know who it was???

God bless,

John

No, but we saw a Grey Eagle southbound today a little further south.  We also saw a MC-8 this afternoon headed north in the same area.  Jack

Jack,

I could have been gray. I am surprised we didn't see each other. I know for sure that I would have seen the Orange Blossom Special II. We were heading out of St. Pete on Sunday.

God bless,

John

Oh, OK. I might still have recognized it. Doesn't your dually have the same color scheme?

Bill,

Not at all!!! I thought that it was a really cool caption. I didn't even know who started it. I like the caption. I will change it from a "spotted" Eagle if you would like though... I sure don't want to offend you, and I for sure don't want to offend one of our Eagle owners.

Let me know.

God bless,

John

John,

It's OK to call them "Spotted Eagle", just don't call them "Bald Red Eagle".   Roll Eyes

We'd like to think that the feathers hide something! HA

Pretty much so, hood and front fenders are red with several red stripes extending back down the sides. The rest of the truck is white with a sunset rose pearlescent clear coat.  Jack

Now, if I could just talk Paula into letting me get the Grand Cherokee painted to match the other vehicles.  On second thought, the white being towed behind the bus, Nah, I don't think so.  Jack
