The FEMIGC is coming.
We may only make the last few days of it, if weíre lucky.
Nola has some cataracts to get fixed, and it may take us into October. But weíll try our best to get a few days of merriment in.
Itís nothing serious. Just takes time, folks.
No, we didnít expect this, but itís gotta happen.
Worst case a Grand Opening via FaceTime?

Any questions?
Dave being the true Southern Gentleman I am, I'm willing to offer, at no charge, my true southern opinion on those Fried Green Tomatoes. Just have a large platter delivered to our campsite at the GC and watch two southerners indulge. BTW, there great with cheese grits. And Mary says Bless Your Heart!

Getting ready to depart for the GC!

You should have used ARKIE hot air...mouth it.


What about the on-air of the MH. I used to put 110 o 120 in my tiers using it on the 2008 Winni. Air pressure in the MH System is 125 psi. takes a few minutes but just let the compressor cycle.

Best of luck at Lippert.

Thanks. We are going to stay around the area and "investigate" things.

Tim, women wear make-up and wigs to make themselves beautiful. I've seen you in a wig and it was still ugly.

Carl, what is your take on a Sony HX400 for an amature, 24-1200mm zoom.
Important for me is GPS capability.

Me? Oh, I watched my camera fall over on the tripod with a 5 lb lens attached to it, rip the screws right out of the mount on the camera body Never fear, Nikon repair is there The estimate isn't so bad, will have to see what the final cost is once they actually fix it.

In the meantime I picked up a refurbished D7200 as it's got the same controls and everything my D750 has, just not quite the same sensor size and such. Compatible with all my other lenses and gadgets so it was a no brainer to have a spare. And it takes GREAT shots!!!
Well, to answer your question... two weekends ago went to Little Rock to make a sweet deal on a pick up, (see attached photo) This is a '42 Crosley Pickup one of three in the club registry. Then went camping at Carlyle lake IL, got back home to pack for a week stay to the great Northwest Washington. I'm doing honey do's for a 96YO mom. I'm so close, I can see our Vancouver Mutant home Island. After I get back it's off again camping to Branson. Busy, busy, busy!

Smooth move there! I heard your gasp all the way out in IL as the inevitable began to happen in ultra slomo. Wile E. Coyote comes to mind: all scrabbling, scrambling feet & legs reaching for a grasp.

Nice Queen Anne's Lace, btw.

Or is that our Arkie Queen Ann's Lace instead?

Nonono! Tomatoes are the main course, of course. All else is side dish. Unless it's sweet corn.
