    I just wanted to say a big thank you too all who showed up to visit with and support my pops. It means a ton to my family and me and even more to him knowing that he has so many amazing people in his life. The food was great and the people even better. I know he had a great time. Thanx again!

    Cheers,
    Chaos

    I'll try. It was only suggested by me and handed off to a few with the contacts to make it happen. As soon as I hear something I'll post it up and PM you.

    Back in Squarebanks now. Damn nice day today!

    Very cool. I'll still be frozen to the ground up here but have a good time and bring a camera.

    On an unrelated note thanks to all for whupping up some xlnt groceries last weekend at Tractor's place. The boss has been experimenting with the vitamix here at the pad and I've had several meals of tepid foam with a curious and not exactly palatable odor. Lesson two I hope includes lightening up on the throttle hand with that thing.

    Good company and good food was just right.

    It was just right. Had to be kept small so to those of you who feel left out, sorry. Dont let that stop any phone calls or other visit's.

    Had a good time wheel chair jousting. Food was over the top.

    Legion I high tailed it back north to avert any further, well you know.

    Slide by the pad when you get back and maybe the wife'll serve us up some foam that smells like old tires and burnt hair. She's getting some mad skills in that area. Mmmmmm.

    Glad to hear you're enjoying your new wood chipper.
    Just picked up the General from AnchInternational and on the way home she asked what I wanted for dinner tomorrow night. Something about some kind of soup puree. Might have to work late and pass on that little vitasurprise.
    Hang in there buddy. Hopefully the newness will wear off soon! :evil:evil:

    I think I'm taking a "mental health" day on Friday, but I doubt there's any way I can safely get my motorcycle out on the highway. Could we follow in cars?

    I know, what a silly question... I'll probably be out on my skis somewhere anyway.

    Nothing says dinner like "Foam Puree De Jour"! On that note"Waiter, bring me a Fillet, medium rare and not pureed".

    Just had more foam for dinner. One more night of fruit and vegetables would be too much. I'm slipping a ham in that bad boy.

    You sure one day'll cut it?

    Hi Legion,

    Smarty pants! :ddog

    But you know what? Maybe you're right. I think it will require another four days off to help improve my mental health. Soon we're heading to Tolovana hot springs to spend a few days skiing and soaking in the (shhhhhh - clothing optional) hot springs. :clap

    Keep us posted on the details about taking Tractor Rider for a ride. I may not ski tomorrow and while I can't ride my motorcycle out along Turnagain Arm, I could ride a bicycle and wave (or throw snowballs) as folks ride past. :D
