All this proverbial shooting in the foot starts happening on March 29. You think we have problems? - this one is real!

Sound serious!

Itís good to know that other countries have govt officials who donít give a flip about their constituents. Anyone wanna place bets on whether or not ours shuts down again tomorrow night?

My sympathies to the other countries that are having Gobment problems. They are all real and serious. Worse thing about it is that none of us can do a thing about it until election time, and even then it may not be what one wants as an outcome.

Personally I'm not going to let any of it bother me. The rest of my lifetime is going to be to as much fun ass I can. Especially having fun with RV Mutants.

Funny thing, we all seem to have fun when we get together. Looking so forward to those that will be visiting us and then the TXGC.
