The odds are in our favor 70% chance it won't rain. Even if we get alittle rain the pastures will be that much better running.

I dont mind the pastures but that speed bump I found last time should be avoided.

It don't look like 'big feather', Ann and I will be coming after all.
Our son David is in a hospital in Atlanta, and granny is already up there.

I'm sure he's going to be fine, but I wanted to apologize to Skeeter, Adam and all of the others that have worked so hard for this VERY worthwhile event because I had promised to participate too.

I'm going to cancel our reservation at the Super 8 for Friday night so if they were booked-up, there will be a room available there shortly.

I will be hoping that y'all kick butt on Saturday. I'm good for it if you run short on money for postage :)

Wait a sec - I thought the Diamondback party was off site? (Off site and the topic was Loughman - led me to believe it was NOT at loughman) I asked days ago about this.

Thanks for clearing that up Bobby and thanks for the invite for those of us participating in the charity event.

It'll still go well as planned - we're folks who know how to get it done.

See you there early Dakota and all the camping friends - You want me to stop and buy some hot coffee? ;)

Looking forward to this one! :)

Thanks Adam. A little more bad news with today's tests, but at least we know how to go on from here.

He will have to do a few things different in the future. If he doesn't, he won't live to see 40. Simple as that.

Thanks A1 .... looks like he'll be OK. All my boys have danced with the Devil. You can blame me for that. Aaron was the first, and he lost. He died at the age of 29. David is the oldest and I think he's finally 'got it' now.

Shannon, the youngest, is watching big brother. Hopefully he'll catch on too.

A1,

Bring it on please! The laptop would be so...much easier and faster! Will still have to have a USPS account to be able to print if I'm not mistaken?

Mood did you say that you had an account?

I don't know about that USPS account thing Basket - When I called the postoffice, they did not say a thing about it.... which means you probably gotta have one. :roll:

Geneva Dave expressed interest in paying for the postage with his credit card - (he'll get reimbursed from the raffle cash) Possibly a little tax writeoff perk in it for his trouble.

I'll set up an account too just in case, but I won't have the same little bonus since I don't do that on my taxes that way.

Yes, bring the internet! (and printer)

matt.

By the way, I have the addresses for the troops. So there are no surprises, I am only bringing 12 or so names. Each of these individual is registered to represent 15-40 soldiers. One of them even represents 100+!! I think it will be easier to send multiple packages to a few addresses and let them be distributed there. I had almost 30 names last time and it was a pain in the butt keeping it all straight in the end.

I am thinking we can have somebody working the computer end of it getting all the labels printed and whatnot, a few of us working at getting everything packed and weighed and a few loading and or stacking the completed packages.

We'll see how it should work once we get there though.

Thanks

Adam

BigD, I won't be able to get there until 9 or 9:30 so sometime around then would be ok I guess. I'll call you later this evening.

Mudpuppy, cool deal. That should really make things easier.

I'm all packed up, hooked up, and ready to roll in the morning. See ya'll then!!
