    I think the fix was in, after I bought a Twister game, sent Russ some dead squirrels in the mail, I got squat.

    Oh well, next time I'll have to up the offer to Possums. :) Maybe throw in a quick recipe book too for road kill.

    Just saying thanks to all here. You're good people.

    Thanks again Russ, and you are right... all good people. Except for Tony... he’s the reason Chicago has a 5 day cooling off period and ID laws to buy a bag of quick-set concrete.

    Well......There's always that "one" in the crowd....

    Yep. And I got stuck sitting by a couple of them and didn't get to socialize with my fellow Polkies. Nice guys, but I'd have much rather been shooting the bull with some Polkies.

    Russ, this in an unbelievably nice gesture. You deserve all the good Karma that comes your way. Hope to see you in May.

    Yes, I agree that this really is the 19th time you've said that. :p

    That said, I am glad you weren't in with 167, or we would have to suffer another 148 "In with" comments. :D
