All the best to you. The smarter half here spent her earlier years on St. Simon's Island and apparently at its peak one could walk on the humidity back to the mainland.

We left North Mexico and rediscovered that America where the flag is displayed with pride.

Here's to all positive karma redounding to your union for your tireless toil telling the tale of the nation's defenders.

LOL! I did something like that in NC, only I was pouring concrete into molds to make the pathways. One 80 lb bag at a time for about 2' x 2' section. Probably started me on my weight loss "program"

Hi FRiend!!


So good to see you and snippy on line again.

You two have been sorely missed!

Okay, you and snippy can make room for me next fall. I can't come this year, already did my big trip thing, Las Vegas in July! OMG, Sam I did it and didn't gamble one dime.

I did love the hot dry air, it was 104F when I was there.

I didn't win any prizes this year, ;( and it's okay.

How does anyone go to Vegas and not gamble??????

There's always next year for prozes. :-)

Snippy and I actually have a FOxhole Thread started but then Real life intruded and now with dial up finishing it could get unpleasant. But we will get it done.

Well, on the gambling thing, I was looking for one armed bandits, no such animal any more. They do have quarter machines, but darned few of them, people get them and take up residence. I just got tired of waiting around and besides those dang quarters where heavy to carry around. LOL



I am all done competing now at conventions, costs, too much.

My word, Mayor, Old Glory still flies!

What a shocker you folks had. I remember many years ago when I was living in the sticks, on October 5, we had 5" of snow. Nothing like your storm.


Lots of tree damage, but none to your house I take. That is always a big worry for me, I am surrounded by huge old trees. Limbs are always falling into the street and on the side walk, so far no big ones on the roof.

Margaritas on the house!

Personally I prefer Magaritais while sitting on the deck as I find the pitch of most roofs makes for rather uncomfortable seating. :-)

Tell hubby good job on the sidewalk but how come we always have the money for the fun projects after we get seasoned???

Flying strong and high..

I sadly have to go now and remove the apple tree.

The snow is just about gone but the problems still persist everywhere.
Still 300,000 without power and trees down everywhere.

Yea we had the same problem here in Kansas City 10 years ago about the same time in October. Snow flurries ended up being 8" of heavy wet snow on trees that srtill had all thier leaves. Lot of people lost trees here as well as power for a week or more.

Good luck
