Oh yes, I remember going on cheap vacations for timeshares with 4 towheads in tow.. one always got carsick and that put a quick end to any sales pitch! LOL! With so many littles with us... we did vacations on the cheap, and would stay at the timeshare and rent a couple canoes on one day and do a float, and the next we would talk the bus driver into picking us up or dropping us off with 6 cheap drug store air mattresses and we would float the same river that way. (The first day was a scouting adventure to see if there were too many snakes, and if it was deep enough to run the air mattresses over and where we would need to pick them up and carry them to avoid popping one...). Too much competition with the canoes and the float would never take log enough, but the air mattresses were really a relaxing ride...

Hmmm, should this be a 1 or a 0? Let me try 3 in this parameter. Maybe this one should change when I change this other one. Oh crap, forgot to save it again, let me start from the beginning...


This is really impeding the rainbow riding there...wow, I think Papa Steve's suggestion should be seriously considered. Maybe stop by a juvenile hall and bring as many as you can fit into your car with you.

And to my friend Wayne in Texas, I have been told that if I moved to Texas, I would increase the IQ of BOTH states... LOL

I have a feeling I will pay for that one at the soon to be announced GC in Texas...
Time will tell. Tim also!

Called me at 6:38 pm... good to go, pick up in the morning. Heard that before... we shall see. Too tired to run it down but promise to tell all when I get the time. Fingers crossed!

Good Night Mutants!

Well, been scrambling to get prepared for the Farmer's market tomorrow... All I have is lettuce, greens, and peach butter... but Sara has some jewelry hangers she made and some chives, and more varieties of lettuce to add to salad mix bags. Oh, and some green bunching onions. Slow start, but it will be hopping soon! (iffin the weather cooperates)... my cabbages, chard, and beets look lovely so far... and Mark staked my tomatoes for me today, so tomorrow afternoon, I can start training them up the posts. Just wish Bambi would leave them alone! he doesn't bother the pepper plants... yet.
