    I'm gonna try to make it...,

    and I'll probably be a little early too, as I slept through the last one!!! Been sick all week though, much better now, I'm even gonna try going to work tonight!

    Peter, this rain thing hit you pretty hard last year too as IIRC, do you have any ponds or lakes on your place, you might have to take up aqua gardening,
    and trade you tractor in for a jet ski!!!

    Lots of good food and conversation - picked up an idea or two that dovetailed in with things in process.

    Then on to the gun show. Traffic was backed up 2 blocks waiting to make the turn into the Showplace and the ticket line extended to the end of the building! The isles were absolutely packed - had to twist and turn to just get through + wait your turn to look at the goodies.

    When I did leave after 1:30 PM the line was still out to the end of the building, An officer had cones set up and was directing traffic in and out - the traffic was now backed up for 4 blocks and more getting in line all of the time.

    Did I miss the warning that guns were being outlawed? ...

    I saw the line, went to Greentops, had an interesting conversation, bought shotgun shells, went to walmart, bought catfood, tuna and liver.

    Went home and ground up the catfood, tuna and liver and put in jars to sun render for Bobcat bait. Then since I was accused of being lazy on rainy days.....Speed....got a new stump jumper for my bush hof and sharpened the blades.

    Now I have to come back for the birthday party tomorrow
