    The cat did, so that would kinda fit, actually. Cat mysteriously dissapeared soon after. Coincidence??

    I found the cat...It's walking real funny and it's ALL PISSED OFF. WTH did they do?????

    We're checking out the new XM tuner, but we had to cut down one of Troy's neighbors' trees. Works like a charm....Great reception!!!! And less leaves....

    Paul here - Having a wonderful time. Wish you were here (sort of). Troy is a wonderful host. Listening to Mighty Sam McClain right now in one room and XM tuner in the other. Great audio, great music, great food and lots of beer. What else could you ask for?

    Update:

    Ok, the "Fest" is back in full swing, DaDa blasting though Paul's modded CRS+'s, plenty of southern BBQ, Russ A. is rifling though the kitchen cabinets, Mark, Russ G. and Anthony are smoking ceegars out back and I'm going to join them in a minute.

    More later........time for that ceegar! :D

    When last seen Doro was in the bushes, I told him that gasoline and fireworks were not necessarily a good match but what the hell, it DID work, well kinda. Troy was looking for the number to State Farm or something like that. I think Wendi may be getting a new vehicle, not sure but have to see how they want to "unintended fallout" of burning materials.

    Having a blast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yea, I mean a real blast.

    Great 'fest, great group of people! My only regret......no video of of the clash of titans, ie, Doro's fight to the death with the hedge friday evening. Most certainly the classic struggle of good versus evil but doomed to be forgotten only to be passed to generations by word of mouth.( pictures would have been some much more entertaining :D )

    Seriously though met a bunch of great people and enjoyed listening to tons of new, to me, gear.

    1. Mark's wireless laptop is GREAT for checking the forum from a jail cell.

    2. According to hoosier, the going rate for sexual favors in jail has declined about 20 percent accross the board in the last few years.

    3. Cops do NOT believe in the philopophy of: If your too drunk to remember, it never really happened.

    Gotta go, more thoughts after the arrainment
