    Day 4 on the job!
    Standing in a little area for 10 to 12 hours talking my head off is proving to be quite a challge!
    Pretty much lost my voice yesterday, but sold a few things at least :D

    Wow! What's up with the new look?? Can't say I like it :huh
    Anyway, I've got 6 days behind me, and day 7 is about to start.
    I have to admit that this job is harder than I thought it would be. I can imagine it to be more fun in a crowded Costco. This one is so quiet that sometimes no one will walk by for 15 or more minutes, so I basically stand there pulling my hair out! :wink:
    Got home to my tent last night and realized that I had caught a bug of some sort. So now I"m off to work with a soar throat and a fever, hmmmmmmmmm, not sure if this is such a brilliant idea!
    The fact that I only have 4 more days to go is giving me a little oomph, I hope I will last the day.
    On a nicer note, I got my tax return in! Yippee! Will order gas tank lid for IMS tank and send it to HoggJaww. Can't wait to put the new tank on, awesome!!

    If you go to Quick Links - User Control Panel and Edit Options, down near the bottom, you can choose the Forum skin, which changes the way the website appears. I like ADVrider 2.0 :1drink

    Esther, I hope you get a chance , while you're in really south Texas to ride over to Padre Island. While the town part of South Padre will remind you of the congested parts of Florida, there is a jewell to be seen.
    Just keep riding north. The town ends and the further you go the less evidence of man you'll find.

    They gave up on keeping sand off the road.

    I camped just off the road and other than a car or two going by it was very peaceful.

    And the sun came up over the Gulf.

    GB, Hmmmmmm, thank you for trying to be helpful, but really! I do not mind :lol3
    Hi Mike, how are you, nice to hear from you, and yep, I got your PM. Hope to meet on the road again some day. By the wayu, while here in Pharr, I saw a house for sale that reminded me of you! I will take a picture and post it, seeing as you are planning on moving down here.

    Last day today! Yay, I'm still a little woozy from battling the flue, but at least my fever broke last night so hopefully I'll be fully in the selling mode today. Sales have been very iffy, oh well, I'm sure the fact that more than 50% of the shoppers don't speak English might have something to do with it. My Spanish is pretty bad!
    I'm planning on just crashing tomorrow and leaving on Tuesday. Wish me luck!
