I Worked Hard For It.

. We were on our way[we had a family business] to work and passed our local ford place and to the side was the best looking truck I had ever seen. A 1979 f 100xlt red on red We pulled in and I saw the price and i knew I coulden’t afford it so I had walked on down the lot looking at cheeper stuff.Dad had walked in and came back out and we went on to work as we came back by he pulled in and told them to get it read we were going to take it I was only 15 but he had told me if i worked hard stayed clean of drinking and drugs he’s help me get something nice when the time was rightand he would pay for it until I got out of school.I graduated and he gave me a envelope and I thought it had money in it but it was my payment bookI was mad because I wanted to go to the beach but my truck payment was due so I worked the very next day.He did what he said he would do paying for it until I got out of school and now mine to finish paying off.He tought me a mans word is his word and I still own the truck too this dayand hope to give it too my son when he starts to drive [free of course] My dad is my best friend and he’s 81 now and we take rides in the 79 all the time out to eat and of course I have to buy. lol my f100 has only 100 and 20 thousand on it and it looks like it did in 79.

I was disappointed to discover that peripheral hard drives like the Seagate Slim is not supported through the U S B port, although it works fine on my PC (without an added power supply, by the way).  This would be a G R E A T way to expand songs inexpensively.  I saw no mention of this shortcoming in the manual.  Thanks!
