Big day having fun and food with Colleen and Annie! A grand time was had by all.

So nice to have mutants nearby when visiting a fun place like Vegas!

My guess is some kind of accelerant…unless palm trees are highly combustible, which I have no clue if they are or not.

I thought it was a fake palm tree... and fake plants... which are flamable. I think that's what I read...

Hello fellow mutants. KS Crude is no longer AWOL. He started partying with some guys in Munjor & they were going to the lake & wanted him to bring the jet skis. Yes, alcohol was involved & he took the jet skis to the lake. Neglected to text me to let me know he was going. And leaving his phone in the car the whole time he was out on the lake. Grrrrr. Scared the bejeezus outta me

It was stormy & windy, so what does a reasonable person do? GO OUT ON THE LAKE WITH A JET SKI. (not) He took a spill at 50 mph, landed on his back, & is walking around like an old man. Says maybe (?) he needs to go to the chiropractor. LOL

Thanks to everyone who called, texted & worried. I was worried. But he's fine, we did FaceTime tonight. And, I'm going to give him a good talking to when I get back to Kansas.

Such a joy to spend time with Steve & Annie. We ate out twice today, did a little gambling & looked for RV resorts. Wish I could stay in Vegas till they leave, so we could have more fun. I'm here two more days, so we are not done.

How do you people do those posts with multiple quotes & add multiple replies? I want to do that & can't figure it out......

Wayne, I will pass along your info to the Donald.

Night everyone!

and, if you ask the folks here... it all varies from year to year... Honey looks better each time I see what ya'll have to sink into our rainbow riders... She may be an old gal, but by golly... she runs and keeps up cool and dry!

Colleen, glad to hear Don is safe! Sore and achy is sometimes the best reminder to think! Could have been so much worse. We've all been guilty of that not thinking at one time or another. Hopefully we all learned from those moments! Looking forward t Bryce!

Quote from the fire chief:

"What made it move so fast were all the fake palm trees," Cassell said. The plastic foam used to construct the imitation Arecaceae "is like solid gasoline to us," he said. That's why the fire "took off like a rocket."

Coleen, use the "Multi+" button and when you get to the last item you want to use, hit the "Quote" button. I use Multi+ all the way to the end of my read, then hit the quote button and delete the last quote if I don't want to use it.

I use the blue font color to differentiate between my nice, kind, wonderful words and those other posts.

"The Donald!" Yep, like that. Fits him well.
