BTW, my collection of 45s was over 5 feet tall. 33s about 3 feet. Donated to a charity.

It's funny, but there are times I really miss boy smells, boy sounds, boy roughhousing, boys being boys. Little boys still melt my heart. My 3 year-old great nephew has me wrapped around his little finger! We just don't get to be with him all that often.

It might be a while before boyness is back in our house again. We have a 9 month-old granddaughter. No other grands on the way ... yet. We have 4 sons, so we're not sure about little girls. We can throw footballs and baseballs, but we're not so good with bows and dolls! We are used to farts and burps and wrestling and fort-building. If little Gwyneth is a tom-boy, we're good. If she's a girly-girl, we'll need some advice from her mom!

Steve there is sometimes a reason to head the other way in winter.....



No longer floats my boat as I have too much metal imbedding in various parts of my skeletal persona. DW claims I'm worth more to the metal recyclers than alive.

Well Good Afternoon Mutey's and Mutets! Hope the sun is shining on your face and the breeze
Is at your back on the rainbow today.

All is well here in the metroplex today cept I'm really gettin anxious to hit the road again. Steve and Mary Ann drive safe thru the sunshine state today cause your rainbow rider will be waitin when you get there.

Mel how's the healing coming along? Hope the knee is starting to come back strong.

Wayne we're starting to have withdrawals. We need to get down there for a mini sometime before we head to the Redux. But tell Earlene we aren't gonna give here advance notice so she won't put you thru the paces re-cleaning an already clean house. I just want some more of that liquored up desert she made last time we were there!

So is it too early to start the countdown to Redux? By this time last year it was almost all anybody was talkin about. Boy what a difference a year makes.....so come on Muteys !

Now for those of you newbies that have not spoken up yet, there is still plenty of room and time to join us. Just a simple PM to me or our Most Illustious Potentate Steve aka flagship will get you started with a space assignment. Sooooo lets here from you now.....we are waiting.... Don't make me sick Wayne on you.

Dennis I bet you set off alarms every time you travel. You must be like the Tinman. Do you carry your oil can with you? I have no metal but I do feel like I need a good oiling occasionally!

Bow will show a personality soon enough and along with yours and Kates - will be in fine shape faster you can say, "GC 1.2 Redux".

The knee is coming along. Thanks. Second surgery not as bad as the first as far as recovery time. But I think I'll be in physical therapy forever. Not that that's bad! I totally believe in rehab.

Sorry we missed y'all in November. Looking forward to seeing/meeting everyone in April. Looks like we'll be coming in on Thursday afternoon and leaving Sunday afternoon.

I'm trying to get a few things done to Bow before CL. Need to have new curtains made for the front windshields. I think the ones on there now are originals. They've gotta go!

Hope y'all are doing well! Catch us up!

Mel

I guess we're settling in on full time with an absorption refrigerator. 2 months in row - 1st of the month - defrost and raid the freezer for grillmutation and fill the ice chests with things requiring cold and head to the store.

When we return I get the Simple Green and a sponge out and wash the fridge bins, ice bucket and door trays with the hose and dry em off. It's about time to fire it up and let it cool down. In the meantime we've had some of sushi rolls we picked up at the market. They were giving away free samples. Had to try it which, as they had expected, lead to buying it. It was very good. And BTW - life is grand on the rainbow.

Kemah is very good for us - close - but for a little fairness for JNE and TEFFY, somewhere up around the Channel View area would be nice.

I once offered to a moron security dude in the Phoenix airport that maybe I should just strip nekked so he could see all the scars.

I wonder if it will ever dawn on those types that real bombs don't have metal in them.
