Even with all this, we really enjoyed ourselves in Bryce and it was a blast getting to know the mutants there. You guys really are the best.
Oh my, Deb. This tale sounds so familiar. We are sending ommmmmms your way in hopes you have a very positive outcome!

Without a doubt, that gal is a mutant. She doesn't even have to say what she doesn't have, want or need .... We have visual proof in the picture.

Best thing you can do for tires.... drive it.
I saw where they had it and the passenger side caught quite a lot of sun through the day because there was nothing parked next to Bow on that passenger side.

Oh darn. You mean I need to drive Bow to make everything good?? I am going to quote you on that so Kate will understand when I take off next weekend and don't come back for 2 days. She has to work. I don't. :-)

A few days in the sun won't hurt your tires, more importantly make sure they are inflated properly.

Cheers !!!!

^^^^ Deb and Dale...


I know what a fluxcapicitor is - but have no idea what an exciter is. Not surprising I suppose considering it's hiding 10 hours deep.... Ommms that the insurance comes through. (Mel - truck... pulling trailer). Apologies Deb... and again, many Ommms!

It was great meeting you too and sure wish the smoke would let up - for a lot of reasons - but really wanted to make it up your way.

Update on situation when you can.

^^^ Mutant Master of Lucidity...
So when does the last shoe drop...

Shrimp and Crab - what's your route home again? I think I see a Mini C in your future.

Be safe and tell Mary Ann to have fun! You're living the life oh Lucid One...

Wish you both could be here in two days. Annie and I had dinner with these two mutants tonight "out on the town". The band was playing in the courtyard as the moon came over the mountain.

Get some Aerospace 303 - wash the tires... then apply 303.

Deep Breath. Sigh. It's gonna be alright!!

So the La Jolla Groves Restaurant is located in a plaza in Orem. A really nice place. My Ahi Salad was very good.

Hey Ed... check out the Chicken Crepe Jeff had...
