Priorities - putting food on the table and keeping toilet paper on the holder...

A year, well pardner, that's too long...

I wonder how the visitation figures are at Big Bend during this gas crunch.  It might be worth a look back sometime at the visitation figures during the 70's and 80's gas crunch - petrol lines, odd/even days, 10 gallon max, pumps that couldn't handle $1.00 per gallon - had to  resort to 1/2 gallons and liters, etc.

Yup, a year is WAYYYY too long for me! :icon_cry:

Main priority is seeing the boys this summer and my big guy is turning 17 in August.  :icon_biggrin: They call him "Sasquatch", as he is already 6'3 and wears a size 13 shoe... :icon_eek:

If I go to BIBE this year it will be a spur of the moment decision.

Muse a year is a long time for you, you can imagine how I feel going on 4 years  :icon_frown: but I just got plane tickets for a trip to the Bend in Dec.  :eusa_dance:

By the way, it is hard to believe someone as young as you has a 17 year old!

LOL, do the math ME, I'm almost 44... :willynilly:  But thanks anyway! :icon_wink:

patiently waiting for the moderator to remind me that I'm still a few months older than him . . . . Moderator note:  apparently there's no need to...
