    Steve, you can't offend, you had a long couple of days and cut loose - rock on.
    Check your lips at the door woman. Shake your hips like battleships. Yeah, all the white girls trip when I sing at Sunday service.

    You're more than welcome George.

    You should hold 'Ted', above us all, by a little at least. He handled all the collecting of money, and distribution of tickets for that raffle. It wasn't that he did it, but HOW he did it. He was a natural born salesman, friendly, funny - he was throwing out one-liners like a professional comic, fast and razor sharp. I was VERY impressed (and thankful), as were most.

    Cheers,
    Russ

    GG,

    I think Tiffany was right there helping me along the way. George, in Tiffany 's memory these guys ponied up in large way. I felt like everyone involved carried a small piece of her fire in their belly. It was an honor for me to gather some of the funds for the Githens Center.

    Glad to see everyone made it home in (mostly) one piece! More pics are definitely in order...

    Also glad to see so many shout-out's to one of the few good things to come out of this state -- Jim Beam.
    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore

    Nope, I'm digging them right where they are.

    I've got no problem with people moving stuff. If I don't like it, I move it back. No issues. I just like to bust Bruce's hump.

    If any of you think that Wendi might not be able to bring some game, buck up, cause she can toss 'em back with the best of them....and she did. She's a helluva lot prettier than Troy unless you look at him from behind.

    My dear Wendi, It is you that is the real treat. Thanks again for everything.

    A big hug and kiss to Big Flo for me, what a woman!

    More randomness...

    Wendi gives breathtaking hugs as long as Troy is not watching. Troy is still a great squeeze as long as Wendi is not watching.

    Polk Paul knows his stuff and can explain it after sundown.

    My promised toasts to past PF attendees were made.

    Antny is the second person I have met in life who defines the word "friend".

    Brett is a real teddy bear even when awoken. Honored to have met you for the second time broham.

    Jesse is trustworthy.

    A big thanks to Steve, Jesse and Noel for rides.

    Trey you were brought up well. Not much else to say other than visit other countries for perspective.

    Russ and Mark were the usual throb of the party.

    Someone played a European jazz track and I think either Univera or Tour2MA told me at the time but I've since forgotten...

    It doesn't matter how near or far you come from only that you get to PF and back safely.

    Make complete plans for whatever duties you leave behind, then you'll have a 100% good time.

    Amish sausages taste great and go down well cold hours after they are cooked. The food was top notch so my body was enjoying every last moment. When I finally had movement it felt like I was giving birth. My head and body feel like it went through a meat grinder so I had a great time.

    I didn't wear assless chaps but next year I'll wear them for Antny. Someone bring a hay bale for the sideways reverse cowgirl shot.

    Next year I get to pet a shark.

    Airport crud (I edited this out cause my post was turning into a small novel):
    * Toothpaste - no problem going but a Ctown TSA jerk wanted my paste. The punk announced that I had an illegal 6oz tube so I said give me a tissue. I squeezed 1/2 the tube in his hand and packed my tube.
    * Chicago O'Hare - running between concourse B & C then up the stairs feels like training for the olympics. This airport is the size of a small town.
    * Starbucks - cashiers almost seem to enjoy announcing the high cost of their overpriced goods. I just smiled and passed a Starbuck's gift card. Their smirks disappeared quickly.

    I'm semi-recouped from the trip and all that (just in time to run down to Dallas for Mom's 3rd attempt at the marriage thing).

    Much thanks obviously to Troy and Wendi for having all of us there. Wendi, you did not cop a feel this year, however next time I see you I assure you there will be less to grab......lol.

    I had a good time driving down and up with Mark and Strong, and my trip was overall a good one, until this happened to my headset an hour from when I was going to the airport:

    dscn0980fk9.jpgdscn0991kb4.jpg

    I apologize for whatever movement your dog experiended Mark.....somewhere in there is a mic cover, and an earbud (you can have them)

    Hope everyone had safe travels.........I'm off to sleep. :D

    Sorry folks! I've been really busy this week as well as fighting off a cold that has made me seriously tired. I've had alot of work this week for the club (yeah, I actually do work for them) to get flyers and such out the door to the printer. Hey, it makes me some nice $$$ on the side.

    I'll do my best to get some photos up ASAP.
