What a great way to get a head start on promoting Prostate Cancer Awarness month in September.   Hope they are educating on the PSA test and importance of early detection.  And yup, the breakfast bars are great.

How about this:

The first volunteer for surgery on site should get a big gift certificate! :-) They probably have everything on site to assist in any way possible!

Been to a couple of their stores...easy to spend the day there.

This is an interesting concept..if Don's prostate wasn't already out, I'd encourage him to get in line!

The only thing I really know about Cabela's is they have 88 exterior doors and good breakfast bar. I'd stop to see the robot if it comes to the one near us.

Geez,
This is a tough crowd. LOL. Well I'd volunteer but on my last trip to Los Angeles I misplaced my prostate.

But Seriously, look at it in a Cabellas way...We have finally found an easy way to thread a fish hook. Or even, propose doing Da Vinci's at night using night vision binoculars. Or Save money on bullets through our new ballistic retrieval device...oy.

I'll keep the day job
